Surviving the Entrepreneur Roller Coaster

Posted By:

Have you ever had a dream you felt very passionately about, but whenever you told someone about it, it felt like they dumped a bucket of cold water over your head? Being entrepreneurial can often feel like being on a roller coaster. When you dream big, there will always be those who warn you away. If you listen to these voices long enough, they can soon become the voices in your head, telling you you’re not good enough to create whatever business you’ve dreamed up.

In Success Magazine’s bite-sized video entitled “Surviving the Entrepreneur Roller Coaster,” they offer some tips and tricks that budding entrepreneurs can use to keep nourishing their growth mindset, so that roller coaster turns into a rocket ship.

Success Magazine says, “It’s all about the way you support yourself. What you read, the voices you listen to, the things you do with your time-- they can all feed your fire; build up your belief in yourself and what you can do.”

This means making the hard choice to filter out those negative voices or choosing to read something that will develop your personal growth when you’d really like to read that new thriller that just came out. As Richard Branson, head of Virgin Airlines said, “People are no different from flowers. If you water flowers, they flourish; if you praise people they flourish.”

What will you do to flourish your entrepreneurial spirit today?
