Life Plan - Starting A Mobile Bike Business

You don't start your bike business because of what you don't have. You don't start because you don't realise yet that the fruit of everything good in life begins with a challenge.

Sounds familiar. Do you keep puting things off? Making up excuses to start or do anything?

"If you don’t take your own dreams seriously, who will?"

This post is something I put here to help those who have the idea to start a business, who talk about it to their friends and then think about what can go wrong or put off till tomorrow. Then ends up getting frustrated that they can't make a start.
(I can never emphasise enough the importance of making a simple to do list!) It must come from you to want to make a go in life.............We all see things differently, like fear, taking a risk that can stop us from doing the things we really want to do. The successful people know how to overcome this, they also know it means hard work, it's ongoing and there is no quick way to succeed long term. The things we have in common is we all started with little money and little knowledge but by thinking big, having a vision of what we want to achieve by focusing and putting the time into learning new skills puts us in a better position.

Preparation is key - If you just sold your house and had a moving date in say 3 months time.
Would you:
1 Wait until the day before?
2 Let your partner organise everything?
3 Start a to do list?
I would also ask friends to collect storage boxes, have a tidy up and sell unwanted items/give to charity shops, organise my things to be stored in order and label the boxes for easy unpacking. Also start searching storage units if necessary.
If you picked 1 or 2 then you need to start by changing your mindset of getting things done. I am afraid to tell you there is no easy or quick way to anything longterm in life. You just have to be strong and get on with it!

I don't see money as the main motivational source, rather I focus on my passion and keep pushing forward with what I love to do.
I have big ambitions - I start with by focusing on what I want done, rather than how I am going to do it.

Once I made the decision I Act on it!
Focus on what I need to do to get started, and I do not dwell over every single factor.
Even if you are debt, you can do this by taking baby steps on the way to being debt free.
I do to create a plan of action - You don't need to know every element to occupy your mind right now with things that you don't need to deal with. Just a  simple to do list, you can work off daily

But that is me and my way of thinking. How about you?

"Don't just aspire to make a living. Aspire to make a difference. Even you to can be great"

Tell me a job you have loved? If you are only chasing the dollar. then you will have job's that will pay a little more than the last

Are your decisions - 
Based on financial rewards?
Based on how easy the work maybe?
Based on long term goals?

A job can be - That you are looking forward to getting up in the morning and makes you excited doing. If thats not you, then today is the first day of your new way of doing things............

Chat over a coffee

Identify the greatness within you, because greatness lies within you

Your skills - list your skills
Easy to talk to
Mechanical skills
A willingness to learn new things
Use what you have learned from your old jobs, to do what it takes to do the things you want to do/build
Passion - You have passion.

"Passion is an emotion and you need to act on it. Make a decision from it and don't be afraid to fail" 

Your own worst enemy (We are all our worst enemy and we need to recognise it)
Be honest with yourself!
Rushing into things without thinking about the consequences.
You could work at the things that you want - at the moment you don't know what you want and end up jumping at the first idea that comes to your mind. As you see it as a quick fix of making you feel good.
You can think whats good for you long term. Without rushing into it - one step at a time, by doing small things. This way it feels you are moving forward and achieving your goal.
It takes the time to develop, keep your head down and work at it. Stop checking how far you have got, just keep working at it.
By doing things regularly, you start to see results.

What are your financial priorities? If you don’t know the answer offhand, it’s easy to get it. Just look back at your bank statements, credit card statements for the last six months. Whether you like it or not, where you’ve been spending a lot of money is where your priorities are. If you’d like to value experiences more than “stuff,” you may need to make some changes.

You say you don't know why you are getting stressed!!!!!!
Be honest with yourself:
Financial debt - Means stress - depression that turns in to hating your life.
Do you waste a lot of food, buying junk food and drinking alcohol most days?.
My advice is; if you can't afford it, then DONT buy it! Think first; do you really need it or can you make do? It takes a lot of hard work to earn your money, so spend it wisely.

Let me ask you. How much do you want to have your own business?
Then do what it takes, your out goings and spending is the first place to look. Do you need the latest phone, do you need sky TV, do you spend a lot of time browsing online shops like Amazon, do you buy "stuff" on credit card? It's not you don't have the money to start your business, it's you are wasting the money.
And then you are just working to buy stuff" and pay the bank the interest!

Health - look after yourself is the most important thing in life.
If you don't change your ways, you will see the same results. Change one bad habit at a time to a good habit. You have to work at it, there is no easy way to good health, it's a lifestyle change. Your body needs rest and foods to help recover.

If you don't have the energy to do things, then you should look at your lifestyle. This could go deeper into the way you are thinking.
This is where you may need to see someone to talk to and they can help you. We all have to think realistically and know there are good and bad days. And we are learning new things every day. If you did something wrong in the past, then tell yourself you did the best you could at the time with what you knew then. Don't say should have done, say I could have done.
If you never managed money well in the past, well now is time to say, that way has not worked and time to find a new way. Firstly, you need to know why you are spending too much money? Is it a feel good factor? Short term? Do you buy junk food to feel good?
Secondly, you need to know what you want to achieve?

Whole Recovery - helping you pick up the pieces

Maybe you would like to talk with Steve Jessop E: steve@wholerecovery.org The Whole Recovery concept promotes the rebuilding and pulling together of all aspects of the individual's life which have been impacted through substance misuse.

Cycling can help with depression 

Do you spend a lot of time on Facebook? If so then you could be spending your time wisely and start towards building your own business. Learn how to build a website, there are many free platforms like Blogger.com, learn how to market yourself on line and it's all free.

Immerse yourself with mechanical skills online with Parktool videos, you can never learn enough, also search where you can find technical information and join related bicycle forums. If this seems like hard work, or you are not interested, then maybe you have failed at the first hurdle and working for yourself is not for you.

Self discipline
There is nothing easy in life that's worth while. That will be easy in life its all going to be up hill. It's not going to come to you and it's not going to fall on your lap.
If you are only chasing what's easy then eventually you will get bored and you will plateau, where if you are chasing the things that excite you - the people, the work, the stuff you get passionate about - you will actually make way more.

You need to think and take one step at a time. Make those decisions in your life today. To get to those goals you must apply discipline and consistency every day

First - be honest with yourself
There is no quick fix, it's on going.
Things don't go right if you rush into new projects, they will never get completed or worked on.
Make small changes by taking one step at a time
Second - Know what you want
Third - make a plan to pay off your debts and then start a savings plan

Making notes is my way to make a plan and act on it and you can do the same.

Start today by Making a list of 100 things that you want to do................... and list them as most important and group them to what you want to achieve in the next year, 5 years, or 10 years.

Remeber there is no quick way to anything in life. You can buy a ready meal and pop in the oven or you can shop for fresh products, go home prepare and cook. How you decide to live your life will give you different results.

This Blog — and Posts — are for the small tribe of people willing to do what it takes to get massive results (Build the best mobile workshop in the world and work it).

My goal is to share the knowledge

I ask you that you:

  1. Read
  2. Taking Action
