Ideas are useless without execution and follow-through

Entrepreneurs are great at coming up with ideas — that’s what we do. Yet, ideas alone don’t guarantee success. Have a good idea yourself? Here are ten things you need to do, in addition, if you want to achieve success.

 

1. Ooze confidence
You need to be overflowing with confidence — not cockiness; there’s a big difference — and know that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. Will you always have the answers? No. Will there be times you get stuck? Yes. A high level of confidence allows you to face the many difficult situations that you will encounter head-on and handle them accordingly.

 

2. Accept risk
Pursuing your idea is a lot like skydiving. You anticipate your parachute opening, but each time you jump, you accept risk — there is always that chance your chute might not open. Being an entrepreneur has many risks, including financial issues, personal relationships and even health. When you run wide-open with your idea, completely accepting the risks associated with it, you stand a much better chance of reaching the finish line.

 

3. Define your purpose
It’s important to have a very clear purpose defined — the reason for pursuing your idea. Are you doing it for the good of society or do you want to own an ocean-front house and a fleet of exotic cars? There is no right or wrong purpose. This serves as your motivation when times get difficult and you need a little kick in the ass to keep going.

 

4. Create a plan
Anyone can come up with an idea and a desired goal — that’s the easy part. It’s the complete plan that allows you to get from start to finish that’s the difficult part. Write everything down and reverse-engineer a plan that will give you a legitimate shot at accomplishing your goal. Be as detailed as possible, covering every step along the way.

 

5. Assemble a like-minded team
You’re setting yourself up for failure if you think you will be able to handle everything on your own. The weight of tasks, deadlines and stress building up on your shoulders will eventually crush you. Surround yourself with a team that you have 100 percent trust in. They need to share your vision and have the same tenacity you possess for it to be a happy marriage.

6. Constantly build momentum
Taking your idea from concept to fully executed is an uphill journey. You have to constantly build momentum and not stop. If you do, the energy and effort required to get back up to speed will be much greater than it would have been had you kept plugging away. Even if you are working on an idea in your spare time, away from your full-time job, a consistent two hours of work daily is far more beneficial than sporadic full days dedicated to your idea.

 

7. Anticipate obstacles
Entrepreneurship isn’t all fairytales and unicorns, regardless of what you see in the media. Insane valuations, investors fighting to get a piece and bottomless funding are very rare. Shoestring budgets, bootstrapping and constant obstacles are the reality of pursuing your idea. When you go into it expecting and being mentally prepared to face obstacles, you stand a much better chance of successfully dealing with them.

 

8. Establish a professional/personal balance
Burnout can derail even the best ideas and prevent them from coming to life. It’s important that you find the perfect professional/personal life balance. There isn’t a magic formula — you will need to figure this out on your own. It will vary greatly depending on your personal life commitments and responsibilities. When you do find that perfect balance, both aspects — professional and personal — will significantly improve.

 

9. Set micro-goals
Even the most treacherous journey will appear to be do-able if you break it into smaller, easier-to-digest pieces. This is where setting micro-goals can play a very crucial role in bringing your idea to life. It will not only help you make steady progress, but the satisfaction you feel when you accomplish any goal, even a micro one, will give you the motivation and fire inside to push toward the next one.

 

10. Be patient
If you are banking on “overnight success”, you will be in for a serious wakeup call. So, be patient, and if you fail, don’t quit — some of the most successful entrepreneurs experienced “overnight success” after several years of being relentless. As personal-success author Napoleon Hill said, “Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.”
