When you’re running your own business… building your blog… writing your book… launching something awesome… creating cool things…
Some days, it’ll feel like the **** has hit the fan. Technology will go crazy. Websites and computers will crash. The power will go out. Deadlines get missed. Nothing will go as planned.
In that brief moment, perspective gets wacky and it can feel like the end of the world or like things are crashing down around you.
And some days, you won’t feel like doing the work that needs done to move your business forward. It’s tough. It takes time and energy. There’s always something to learn. Sometimes you don’t get the results you hoped for.
Here’s the one thing I know: You’ve got to keep pushing and keep doing the work anyway.
Take action in those moments when you want to pull the covers back over your head and hide. Focus and get things done.
I promise you, there will be days where things go wrong and you just want to crawl back into bed with a box of chocolates, a Mike’s lemonade, a romance novel or some mindless TV show. Don’t do it (or if you must, don’t stay there for long).
Things will go wrong. But you’ll fix them and you’ll get through it.
I promise you, that the momentary challenges won’t be the end of the world. You can always get through it and recover. So don’t let them stop you. Don’t even let them slow you down. Laugh when you feel like crying and focus on putting one foot in front of the other.
Don’t compare other people’s public view to your behind the scenes. More people are flying by the seat of their pants and a mess behind the scenes than you’d believe. They’re still building awesome, successful business and you will, too.
Because it’s what you do in those challenging moments that adds up to create the momentum that propels you forward to success.
