One of the interesting things about running a business is that there’s virtually always problems of one sort or another.
A virus attacks your computer.
A big client leaves.
A customer gets upset with a service issue.
Vendors let you down.
Accounts don’t get paid on time.
I could go on and on.
And these problems can cause us all sorts of anxiety and stress if we let them.
I know they have with me over the years.
But what if we had a mindset shift?
I remember reading in the book, The Road Less Travelled, years ago that life is hard.
But if you can realise that, accept that, and not expect it to be easy… you will be able to cope with things a lot better.
I also remember reading in a time management book that you will never be able to get everything off your to do list.
There will always be more things to do.
And what’s also true is that there will always be problems to solve.
Sometimes I feel like I am so stressed.
But then the next day the stress levels drop.
Obviously, like most of us who enter the business world, I am a little crazy.
But it’s also a mindset shift.
Realise business is hard. Accept the fact problems will never disappear completely… and your whole perspective changes.
Of course, money in the bank almost always eases the stress.
And the best way to fill your wallet with cash is to master this skill.
