Some people think that being an entrepreneur means being a loner. It means working in your office by yourself, in front of a computer and never interacting with anyone else.
Here’s the reality, though. If you do that, you will probably not get very far.
The entrepreneurs who go the furthest are those who don’t try to do it alone. They surround themselves with fellow entrepreneurs and exchange help and advice.
In this video, filmed at the Titanium Mastermind in the Bahamas, Chris Lakey explains why entrepreneurs should not be loners.
DON’T TRY TO DO IT ALONE
If you seek out people’s help, you will not only get where you want to go in your business much faster, but you will also feel more motivated and energetic.
Maybe you come from a non-entrepreneurial background, and you’re the only one in your circle of family and friends who does what you do or even understands it. Even when they see you driving a nicer car, they still don’t understand what you’re doing.
That’s why it’s important to get yourself involved with masterminds and coaching programs so that you can mix with like-minded people and not feel you’re the only one.
TO GET HELP, YOU HAVE TO ASK FOR IT
When Steve Jobs was 12, he called up Bill Hewlett after finding his number in the phone book. Bill Hewlett was happy to help out Steve Jobs and give him the spare parts he wanted. This relationship led to Bill giving Steve a job at Hewlett-Packard.
Since then, Steve Jobs continued to ask people for help whenever he needed it. He found that everyone he asked was willing to help him. No one he asked was unwilling to help him.
Often, we worry that people don’t want to help us, but it’s almost never the case. What separates the people who do things from the people who dream about them is just asking.
Most people never ask, but that’s what causes them to crash and burn. If you’re afraid of failing, you won’t get far.
