Harnessing Entrepreneurial Depression Swings
Every entrepreneur knows you have good days and bad days and sometimes those bad days can be really bad. There are some days that will just weigh down on you due to actions out of your control or simply failed missteps on your part. The tough part is you can't worry about it its all apart of the process of being an entrepreneur your going to have those days. What I am going to tell you though is how to harness those days so you don't turn a bad day into a bad week, into a bad month, into a bad year. It was just a day and you are going to learn from it.
So let's focus on the basics, what went wrong? What is causing this emotional turmoil that is disrupting your state of mind? You have to think back or when this moment happens to you and say what caused this to happen. There is a reason and you have to acknowledge that reason. Whether it is someone else, something else or more importantly your own fault. There were little hints along the way that were happening, little signs that were leading you to this despairing moment as an entrepreneur. So you first have to acknowledge that it happened and take responsibility that it happened. Then you can address the little signs along the way.
As you are fully accepting what has happened you must realize it will all be fine. Its one of the most important things for an entrepreneur because not a whole lot of people are telling you it will be okay, but I am. This problem causing you concern will sort itself out and in 3 months you wont even know why that situation really made you that upset. This will help eliminate that fear and stress causing you deeper depression. So take some deep breaths into your abdomen through your nose and out through your mouth slowly. All the while feeling "everything is as it should be". Time will heal it so don't let it completely bring you down and fog up your goals. If its money the money will come, if its HR issues the right people will come, if its internal problems the right situation will work itself out. It will because as an entrepreneur you are and have to be resourceful so you will find the answer to the problem,
Now this is the part we are going to harness this feeling you have right now you aren't going to feel it again. You know why, because with your calm and cool state now you will look for those crumbs, those past patterns. Those little clues that led to this whole feeling that you had and you are going to make sure that doesn't happen again. You are going to realize when things are happening in the future and identify them with this experience. Since your mind was able to stay calm and collected in this moment you are able to keep your mind open to whats around you instead of complaining and shutting yourself off. You are harnessing this one bad incident and improving your life. So don't fear the process except the process.
