Have you ever heard someone successful tell you their overnight success took several years in the making?
This doesn’t quite play into our desires or expectations of instant gratification does it!
Sadly, the line from here to success is never straight, no matter what your endeavour. And it rarely happens overnight!
I remember when I started my first business, I was so utterly determined to make it a huge success that I pretty much worked day and night, and on weekends.
I literally thought Hard Work was what would make me productive.
And sure, sometimes working really really hard can get some big things done. But it’s impossible to sustain that level of effort and hustle in the long term.
Pretty soon you’ll burn out, and that’s what happened to me.
So today I want to talk about a topic that has become incredibly important to me, and that is…
How to maintain a positive, confident mindset as an entrepreneur.
Personally, over the years I have experienced the wild roller coaster swings of emotion, stress levels and overwhelm.
Whenever this used to happen, I would swing crazily between feelings of elation and like I was absolutely nailing it, to the complete opposite where my confidence was at rock bottom and I would feel like what the heck am I doing? Why would I ever think I’d be any good?
Thankfully, I learned a few skills to moderate these crazy emotions!
I now have a daily practice that helps me to maintain a positive mindset.
So that’s what I’d like to share with you today.
