It is not easy to start a business. It is not easy too to own a business. It is even harder to run a successful business.
   Daily challenges can drain your passion, your focus,  most of all your thinking strength.

Discipline can assist you with accomplishing these 5 points-
1. HAVE A WAKE UP TIME. IT is not compulsory for you to have a definite sleep time but you definitely must have a wake up time. If you do, you will sleep confidently knowing that you will wake up when you wake up.
    Having a wake up time without the use of alarm clocks will help you sleep longer and deeper.
Train your mind clock to wake you.

I HAVE TO TALK ABOUT BRAIN TRAINING ONE OF THESE DAYS

2. EXERCISE. When you wake up, it is best to do little exercise to activate and increase blood flow into the brain. It gives you inner energy to run your day without tiring out.

3. WORK HARD, NOT LONG. If you work for a company, this might not be possible. Company owners follow the trend of working long and hard. Those two don’t work together.
   If you own your business, always take a break. Trust me, if you work for 8 hours at a stretch, your productive time cannot be more than 20% of that time.
   Pick time in your mind when you ll take long breaks and short breaks. Your brain reacts to breaks as it will react to rewards for doing something so it will work more efficiently, knowing you will soon get some rest.

4. KEEP YOUR HEAD UP ALWAYS. You will face lots of troubles everyday at work. You will have disappointments. You will have failures. Do not ever get tired of solving problems. Challenges must come. You must face them. You don’t have to solve them immediately. Just don’t ever get sick of trying. The more you face those challenges, the more you enjoy your day. The more fulfilling work becomes.

5. SOLITUDE. This is not loneliness, it is just a state of being alone. A state of self engagement, self consciousness. It is agreeable, proficient company with ones self.
   You need this to conduct a sincere conversation with yourself about your day, about your business, about your life, about how all these affects your family.
    After your days work, find a quiet place, sit and stare into the blanks, speak within you. And talk about your failures for the day and your successes. Talk about what you can do about it too.

ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT DISCIPLINE WILL HELP YOU ACCOMPLISH A LOT IN LIFE! 
I am not trying to tell you how to live
I am just saying that self development is a guide to better living.

Its is general belief that money is the end game of every business. Most also believe that if they start a business that earns their needs and wants, they will be happy.
  Money shouldn’t be your reason to start a business career and there is no happiness in piling money. What you feel when you earn is just cerebral excitement.
THESE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT MONEY…

1. Don’t ever go into a trade or business because you did your research on current value of entrepreneurs that run that class of business and you saw that they make a lot of money.
You ll be tempted to stop there but don’t. Dig deeper to find out how bad recession in that business could be.
THERE IS NO BUSINESS THAT MAKES MONEY CONSTANTLY.

2. CALCULATE HOW MUCH YOU LL NEED TO KICK OFF.
This include, how much you ll spend in the first set of months after you start the business, before it starts making money.
If its services business, do your math to know all that you ll need. It can be devastating if its after you kick off newly that you start to realize there there s still a lot to do.

3. GET A MENTOR
It is not compulsory for this mentor to know that you are under his tutorage. Read about entrepreneurs, tactically choose one that you realize you can understand how he deals with money. You could use them as guide.
Its always better if you get a real mentor you can go to for advice when you are in trouble.

4. KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ASSET AND LIABILITY.
I ll just break it down for you. You don’t need to be super educated to know the difference between asset and liability.
Asset brings money into the business while liability takes money out of the business.
Knowing this would assist you decision making process when you want to spend business fund.

IF YOU WANT TO RUN A PROGRESSIVE BUSINESS YOU MUST SPEND MONEY ON ASSETS.

5 .MONEY DOES NOT BRING HAPPINESS
I won’t say much about this now. All I ll say is that if happiness is what you re looking for, getting rich won’t give you. Fulfillment might.
If you successfully run your business to grow, which has nothing to do with how fast it has grown or how much it is making, you will have some satisfaction through sustainable development. ASK YOUR MENTOR ABOUT HAPPINESS.

Keep all these in mind if you want to start a business.
If what you need is money, go get a job.

I am not trying to shape your life
I m just saying that self development leads to better living.

I wrote earlier about what you need first to succeed in any life course. I talked about staying alive. If you missed it, get it here
.
It is a common thought that people who succeed are the ones who found what they have passion for. It is simply edged into us that we have to do something we have passion for, to be successful and happy.
We indeed take our time to find what ‘ we exactly should do ‘ with our life.

Lets think about this: does passion pre-exist birth?
No. Passion for doing something is developed consciously or reflexively through life experiences and exposures. This means that you develop passion for things you already like doing.
All I m saying is don’t go about looking for what you should do with your life, in the name of finding what you have passion for. What you do now is something you can develop passion for and you ll end up loving it.

Keep this in mind though: becoming passionate about your career is easy, keeping it up at all times is hard so always remember that you re in control of your passion and passion is just a tool to let you sail through life, successfully, happily.
We ll speak again soon.
