Finding Peace As An Entrepreneur
Every individual on the planet earth has one challenge they face and as an entrepreneur it's quite normal that you face even double these challenges. With a dynamic world, people's preference, government policies and the industry keeps changing whether it favors your business or not. This can put so much fear and burden in your mind and cause you to constantly loose it. Well being an entrepreneur doesn't mean everything would go smooth, challenges are expected but it all boils down to how you are able to maintain a calm persona /mind in the face of it all.
To find peace first you have to learn to withdraw to recharge. Being an entrepreneur doesn't mean your mind and body is automatically immune to stress. In fact the more you pretend to be unaffected the more damage you would be doing to your mind and body. You need to take time out to recharge, rest and have your entirely system fully charged. Good sleep, time away from charts, exercise and meditation is required to keep your mind charged and ready to face the anything thrown at it. Failure to do this will not only affect the type of decisions you make but also your overall productivity. When your mind is better charged, you approach challenges with a sharper and broader mind and overcoming them becomes easier. Your mind controls it all and if it isn't getting recharged of course you'll feel frustrated and it's only a matter of time before you scare everyone off.
Secondly you need to understand your onions. Being an entrepreneur is not a free ticket to instant wealth and until you understand that you will continue to give yourself unnecessary headache. Your business needs time to grow and if you keep pushing it to stages it isn't ready to move to, you might just be pushing it off the cliff. You can't control the industry but the least you can do is understand it and create strategies which will help favor your business. Rather than worry about how your competition is doing better than you, make research and find out why they are doing better. When you have figured out what makes them better,, then you can develop ways to take your business to that level and beyond. Things you can control strive to do your best and for things you can't learn to let go. You would be helping not just your business but also your mind from going crazy and having sleepless nights.
Next hire capable hands. Your mind will only be at rest when you know you have capable and trusted hands on deck. It is impossible for you to be everywhere every time, having capable hands will help you get things done easier and also allow space for other things. Some entrepreneurs make the mistake of hiring incapable hands in a bid to save money, sadly you would be loosing both money and sleep instead. Trusted employees are like soldiers, they will make sure that all irregularities are taken care of with or without you that way you would worry less and have time for other things like family or personal time.
Having a peaceful mind even as an entrepreneur isn't a big deal as long as you understand what and who will help you keep things running smoothly.
