Anyone who has been in business for quite some time could tell you that entrepreneurship is a personal development journey. We are all faced with obstacles from time to time that challenge us to rise up, tap into our potential, or find another way to get the results we want or need.
However, unlike in life, in business we cannot allow ourselves to stay down or give up easily because the life or death of our business depends on it. If you are faced with adversity and want to learn how you can get over a hump in business (or life in general) so you can achieve your desired results, below are three ways that can help you do just that.
Have a can-do attitude. If you want to move in the direction of what you’re wanting, you have to have a can-do attitude. Where there’s a will, there is always a way. Rather than allowing doubt or excuses to keep you from moving forward in the direction you desire to go, quiet the Negative Nancy’s and pessimistic thoughts that may come up so you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. It’s important to have faith in yourself and to have positive expectations. Start expecting good things. By practicing optimism and having a positive mental attitude, you will be empowered to see with clarity and open your mind up to be able to find solutions.
Focus on the solutions, not the problem. By being solution-oriented, you become the person who takes an active approach to finding answers and believes everything is “figure-out-able”. This way of being puts you one step closer to achieving your desired results. There is power in thinking big. When you ask bigger questions, you find bigger answers.
The next time you feel like you’ve hit a wall while in pursuit of getting something you desire, ask yourself: Are there alternative options that exist? Is there someone you can talk to who may be able to help point you in another direction? Is there something you can do that’s within reach that will also help you move closer to your goal? It’s important to look for the possibilities rather than focusing on the probability of things. While we can’t control what happens to us, we can control our reactions and ability to turn things around for the better.
Stretch yourself. There are never losses, only lessons. Sometimes circumstances exist to help us rise up and stretch into our next level. Sometimes experiences help us become a bigger version of ourselves than who we were originally. Sometimes walls become stepping stones and sometimes no’s really mean not yet. No matter what you may be facing, I want to encourage you to hang in there and believe that you are the kind of person who has whatever it takes. When all-else seems to fail, I challenge you to maximize this opportunity and still choose to be the high achiever that you know you are. I challenge you to see how you can use this moment as a stepping stone so you can witness the power and glory of stretching yourself, being big, thinking big, and making big moves.
Regardless of the outcome you may face, as long as you are choosing to continue moving forward, you are on the right track. Don’t allow doubt or excuses to hold you back or keep you stuck. If you feel stuck, don’t stay stuck. Reach out to get the help, motivation, and accountability you need today.
