4 Ways to Stop Making Excuses and Follow Your Passion

1. Decide if you're truly passionate. Entrepreneurship is not for everyone - it may sound like a sexy career, but the reality is that it takes self-motivation and fortitude. If it isn't for you, that's okay, be honest with yourself about whether you have the tenacity to be an entrepreneur.
Ultimately, passion drives that momentum.

2. Get to know your market. Before launching a new venture, scope out your competitors, get to know your customers, and meet entrepreneurs that you might emulate.

3. Create a safety net. If you're serious about starting your own business, save up the resources you'll need in order to succeed. Lack of time and debt are the two greatest pitfalls that prevent people from starting a new gig.

4. Turn to family and friends for support. The people closest to you can be a vital resource as you prepare to start a new venture. Encouragement from trusted family members and friends will help build entrepreneurial self-efficacy.
They can also help you identify your strengths and weaknesses.
