#BusinessSuccess: Excuses are for Losers

Harare – Giving excuses has become a norm and fashionable for many not to succeed in life. Background, education and age are some for the excuses peddled in order to remain idle.

Some commonly abused apologies peddled by people are: I don't want to risk it – I don't have enough time – there are no opportunities for me – I am afraid of failure – and my goals are big and unattainable – among others.

Doctor Sacrifice Chirisa – a known businessman and mentor ushered congregates into a new dimension as he tutored aspiring entrepreneurs during the 2018 Tiyambuke conference.

Money comes with effort
Profit comes after labour – and we live in a financial world in which everything requires money to go around. Financial success must become your duty in order to succeed but many people have excuses to fail – excuses are for losers.

The world is dominated with people who come from challenging backgrounds but they made it to the top anyway.

Making deals
The world has become a global village – and for you to succeed you must gather information in your chosen field. How much information have you gathered to make money? Plan your day properly to make it fruitful.

Work hard
Possessing a talent is not enough – you must work hard to move things. Even Jesus recruited his disciples who are workers – proving that he was a hard worker as well, said Dr Chirisa.

According to Calvin Coolidge, “Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.

“Genius will not – unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”

Open hands
Use what is available around you. Neil Patel, an entrepreneur and online marketing expert, recommends starting your business with a goal.

Patel defines a goal as: something that you believe in – a cause bigger than yourself – something that benefits humankind – something that requires you to keep hustling every day – and something that you can quantify or measure.

Get advice
Don’t listen to advice from the wrong people – get the right mentor to reach your goals. The market does not know you and people will only respond to your service after being exposed to it for 16 times. Be in people’s faces to get noticed.

Mind mining
Start with something near you – your answers are in your mind – the mind responds to questions. Brain storm all your project ideas on paper and finally trim them down to the final three.
