So, this post is because I am a little stressed out in WOH lately. Stressed, isn’t the right term actually, stress is just one of the outcomes. I’m in the state of do-I-really-know-what-I-am-doing kind of stages and I guess we really do get empty and afraid.
That is why I am truly thankful for this article by Fabiola Fleuranvil entitled: The Entrepreneur’s Dilemma: Being Your Own Chearleader. Read the whole thing here.
She gave 5 points:
1) It’s fine to cheer yourself on
2) You need your own personal manifesto
3) You must be comfortable with failure (Now this one is my favorite!)
4) Don’t count on friends or family to make you money.
So there you have it…the entrepreneur’s dilemma. Your cheering section may be limited to a single voice, but if you shout loud enough and long enough, you may be able to inspire your team to cross the finish line.”
It really lifted my spirit a lot. Working on a start-up is truly a rollercoaster ride. And when you are in the “downs”, you have to make sure you have at least yourself cheering you on.
And this doesn’t only apply to your own businesses or start-ups. It can apply to any aspect of your life. Whatever you are going through, no matter how difficult it is, within you is a stronger you who believes in you and can push you to move forward and be better and okay!
