Why do so many people have ideas, but few make them a reality?

Having ideas is something natural to human beings, even those minds, which in themselves should be recognized as brilliant, who are not interested in what is entrepreneurship, come to mind solutions as valid as any other.

The reason why an idea does not become a reality starts from the lack of ingenuity, this means that we know what we want to do, but we do not have a clear way to do it. And, when there is no sure way to follow then we give up.

This is something that can also go hand in hand with the lack of motivation, and we know that the art of entrepreneurship is not at all simple and one of the traits that every entrepreneur must have is to be passionate about their projects.

With these two points we have mentioned so far, we can already draw a conclusion, where we note that when a person has an idea, but does not have the ingenuity to make it happen, and lacks motivation, tends to leave it aside.

Motivation is key when it comes to entrepreneurship. Because many times, although you have launched your project, there are still many circumstances that could stop it or make you go backwards, but you can not let them sink you and you must stay motivated to move forward.

That you do not have the means, that you do not have the knowledge, that you do not have the support, all of the above are excuses of a person who has neither the wit nor the motivation to make what is in his mind become a reality.

What do I need to advance in my entrepreneurial project?

If you are not clear about what it takes to be an entrepreneur you should know that there are at least six basic capabilities that can be said to be the start of everything, and if any of them fail on the way to achieving the goal then everything can falter.

These are the following:

What happens if my entrepreneurial project does not work?

In case you feel that things are not going as expected there are always a couple of things to do when an entrepreneurial process does not work, and they are the following:

Identify the problem

It seems logical, but sometimes it must be emphasized that we can’t fix a fault we don’t know about. It is easy not to really stop and ask yourself what is going on, the root of the problem.

Once you’ve been able to figure out what the source of everything has really been, then you can sit down and think about real strategies that can help you get out of the rut.

Keep an eye on the competition

In some cases it is not that a project does not work, but that you are in the planting stage and the time for harvesting has not yet come. Of all the stages of business, this is undoubtedly one of the hardest.

In these cases, impatience can cause decisions to be made that affect the entrepreneurial project. Although it is always a good idea to follow your intuition, sometimes you have to stick to your plan until you see the results.

Don't compare yourself

When things go wrong it is very easy to start comparing ourselves with others and this will only lead us to feel worse, it is said that comparisons are odious. Analyzing the competition strategically is fine, comparing yourself to sink you is not.

These are not times for comparisons, but to think of strategies to focus on what really serves your business regardless of what others are doing.

Stay focused on what is important

The last thing to do if your venture is going badly is to focus on what can make your business work. This is not the time to do random things, or act out of desperation.

You need to think about what is needed at that moment and get down to work.
