Have you ever thought, “I would like to know how to quit my job and start my own business?” If so, you’re in the right place now! Corporate jobs can pay well, but they kind of leave you feeling empty in the end. At some point, most people begin to loathe their jobs, even the high-paying ones.
Quitting a job and deciding to go your own way is a big choice. It’s scary at first, but in the end, you will come to think of it as the best decision you’ve ever made. Are you ready to quit your job and start your own journey? If so, I am John Crestani, and I am here to help you turn your dream into a reality.
What Stops People from Quitting Their Jobs and Starting Their Own Businesses?
The answer to this question in a word is “society,” or you could say “culture.” The fact is; all of us are taught to go to school, get good grades, graduate with honors, go to college, get a high-paying job with benefits, get raises, and get promotions. And oh, by the way, have what the Joneses have or better!
We’re trained from elementary school to adulthood to be employees – to get jobs. Yet, being a cog in a machine that exists to make someone else rich is hardly a satisfying and fulfilling life for most. Still, we find ourselves stuck there, don’t we? The reason why it’s so hard to quit your job and start your own business is twofold:
1. It goes against everything you’ve been taught to do your whole life.
2. It’s risky, and doing so requires you to step out of your comfort zone and into the unknown.
Stepping into the Unknown
Someone who is thinking, “How can I quit my job and start my own business,” likely has a lot of legitimate concerns. For example, you may wonder, how am I going to support myself while I transition? What if I fail? What if I don’t make enough money? How will I explain my decision to my family? These are all valid questions.
But you have a choice. You can listen to the voice in your head that says, “Don’t do it. It’s too dangerous.” Or, you could listen to the voice in your head that says, “Nothing’s going to change if you keep doing the same things.”
Don’t Doubt Your Capabilities
If you set your mind to something, nobody can stop you but you, yourself. The human mind is the most powerful organism on earth. When you put it to use, no force can hold you back!
Sadly, the people we expect to encourage and support us often try to discourage us and tell us why we shouldn’t do what we want to do. Whether you realize it or not, by stepping out on your own and succeeding, you’ll be shining a light on other people’s shortcomings, and people don’t like when you do that. Still, separate your reality from the negativity and pessimism of others, and don’t let skeptics define who you are or what you can or can’t do.
