1. You’re bored in your current job. Boredom is a sure sign that you’re not in the right place. No amount of company perks can make it worth spending half your waking hours in a place you don’t want to be. There are so many more exciting, challenging and rewarding things out there you could be doing.
  2. Your mind keeps wandering and coming up with ideas for things you could write about or create and sell. In the moments between busy activity, when your mind wanders, that’s when your true self can really be free to tell you what’s possible. If you can imagine it, then you can make it happen. All it takes is the right actions, belief and support.
  3. People are always asking you advice on a particular subject. If you’re an expert is something, but that’s not associated with your current day job, then you’re missing out on a huge opportunity. People are always willing to pay for valuable information and advice, if it’s offered in the right package.
  4. You had a big dream as a child. Children don’t have the same limiting beliefs and inhibitions that we do. They know what they’re here to do, and you did too when you were young. Remember your childhood dreams, and imagine how happy you’d be if you could turn those dreams into your current reality.
  5. Your colleagues don’t understand you. Just because John and Jane are happy to spend forty years of their life in their cubicles talking about last night’s TV and the dinner they ate, doesn’t mean you should have to settle for the same thing. Not everyone has dreams of escaping, but if you do then you owe it to yourself to pursue them.
  6. You’ve started businesses in the past but they didn’t work out. Past performance is not an indicator of future success or failure. The experiences you’ve gained in previous businesses will help you massively in your new business, especially if you learn the lessons they taught you.
  7. You are inspired by – and maybe a bit jealous of – others who have taken the leap from employee to entrepreneur. We all know of people who have taken the step outside the corporate bubble, and most of the time they’re spoken of with envy or reverence. If they could do it, that means you can too.
  8. You don’t have the freedom to travel as much as you’d like to. Having just a fortnight off in the summer, and having to ask for days off in advance inst a very empowering feeling, if it? Stop being willing to be treated like a child, and take control of your own life for once. If you want to spend time travelling, create a business that allows you to do that while making money at the same time.
  9. Your children are growing up, and you’re missing out on the important things. This is a big one. Time passes while we’re sitting here daydreaming. None of us are getting any younger, and your children will leave home one day, sooner that you think. If you’re going to do it, set a date for taking the leap and stick to it.
  10. You know you’ll regret it if you don’t. According to research, one of the biggest regrets of the elderly and dying is not following their dreams when they had the chance. This is your perfect time, and every day that goes by is one that you can’t get back. Make your fear of regret bigger than your fear of failure. What if it all works out perfectly?
