Is your business fulfilling your personal needs?

Article provided by Zhang Xinyue of Create Abundance

We’d all love to own a successful business and many of us know how difficult it is when our business is stressful and leaves us feeling empty at the end of the day. That’s why people often tell you to choose a business that you are passionate about. If you have a concept that is fun and exciting, then you will work all day and go home feeling energized.

However, if you find yourself dreading the idea of going to work each day, then perhaps you have chosen the wrong field. When we find a great business idea that fulfills us as a human being, then we can enjoy the best of both worlds. We can earn a living from something that we feel passionate about. Though this isn’t always true, often the most successful businesses are created whenever we find something that brings us joy but also brings us material wealth.

Are you a list-maker?

Before starting your business, make a list of all the things that you love. Are you passionate about an idea or hobby? Usually, we can list a dozen things that we like doing. Of those items on the list, which ones might be developed into great business ideas?

What are your dislikes?

Avoid ideas in areas that you don’t like or understand. For instance, if you dislike house cleaning, then starting a business where you provide housekeeping services may not be a good idea. If you don’t like balancing your checkbook, you might not be a good accountant. These are common sense concepts that people often ignore. Try to remember that you may be working in this business for ten or twenty years. It’s important to enjoy what you do.
