Being your own boss, especially when you’re a solopreneur is like a rollercoaster ride.
You have ups and downs.
The one minute you are happy and you think you can make everything happen.
The next you out yourself, you have no idea how to handle all the tasks and how to pay the bills.
You fail a lot and you learn a lot.
You grow as a person and you can achieve more than you ever thought was possible.
You have to believe that everything will work out and that you can do it.
You need a lot of courage, especially when you do something you’ve never done before (which happens every day when you enter the entrepreneurial world).
Whenever you feel like you’re a failure and you don’t know how to move on,
I have a great exercise for you:
It’s simple yet very effective:
It’s called APPRECIATION.
Whenever I use the tool of appreciation (it’s more powerful than gratitude) great things happen.
It is is a simple exercise you can and should practice every day.
THE APPRECIATION EXERCISE
Open your journal or use a blank sheet of paper and start by writing:
Write down whatever comes to your mind.
In case you don’t know what to write start general.
I appreciate the sun.
I appreciate my family.
With more practice it will get easier and easier to appreciate all the big and small things in your life.
The sentences will flow and you will feel that you have a more positive way of looking at your life and business.
Looking at all the good and positive things in your life makes you happier and successful.
I love this simple, yet effective exercise.
