Starting a business produces a mixture of emotions.
On one hand, you’ll have a lot of high points. It’s exhilarating to finally be working on something you’re passionate about. It’s inspiring to be surrounded by other people with great ideas and the courage to do something with those ideas. It’s rewarding to make progress towards building a business that you’re proud of.
And yet, on the other hand, there are some really LOW lows. It can be absolutely terrifying to not know what lies ahead. It can be frustrating to not see things happen as quickly or easily as you would like for them to. And it can be devastating on the days when you think it may not work.
Starting a business isn’t ever going to be easy, but when the low points come on too strong or too often, you might also find it tough to stay motivated.
The fire that once fueled you has died down. The little things that used to excite you now seem like a chore. You have so many things to do, yet you’re finding it difficult to make a start on any of them.
If so, try these four tips to help pick yourself up, dust off your knees, and try again tomorrow.
