Just a random thought for you today.
I’m always intrigued by entrepreneurs and how our thought process works.
One of the main reasons I feel why entrepreneurship gets a bad rep for being a tough game is because we entrepreneurs are not patient.
We see someone else doing what we would like to do and we feel envious that they are doing so well.
We want what they have – whether that be thousands of Instagram followers, crazy revenue, lifestyle, etc.
But what we don’t realize is that the very fact we are seeing them means they are the outliers.
They are the ones who succeeded out of millions who failed.
And their success came after a long time of working consistently. That is the part we don’t see.
We want in 1 month what they got in 10-15 years. That is what causes frustration.
I’m not lecturing you by the way. I myself fall victim to this impatient mentality often.
Next time just remember that the correct way to go about your business is to go slowly and patiently.
Turn your goals into longer ones instead of faster ones. Instead of 1 month, focus on 5 years.
Be a tortoise, not a hare.
This will relax you.
Always wanting things NOW is like being a child who cries when they cannot get their hands on a toy.
Don’t be a child.
Remember, we cannot demand from life what it can’t give to us at this moment.
So why not go slowly and enjoy the process?
This is one of the reasons why I’m against taking abrupt and drastic steps like quitting your job and starting a business without any support system.
That kind of urgency can result in a lot of unnecessary stress.
I know all these things are easier said than done but sometimes even a small change in the thought process can change your life.
I hope this suggestion helps you (and helps me too lol)
