There are times in life when you just get so tired and feel misunderstood, but the commotions and problems of the moment should not be a major setback in your quest for peace and freedom in business for there are paths thorny and paths tattered, business is filled with agony.
Take a deep breath dear and think again, it can’t be too difficult to handle, there must be a way to follow that will bring peace of mind and success. Business success can be in paths that you do not know but with vision, mission, strategies, focus and diligence you can be able to achieve greatly.
But what is it that I am truly talking about, I don’t really know for sure because business is complicated but beautifully simple – it depends on your perception. If business is easy then where is the gain, “No pain No gain”, business only gets painfully complex as it grows bigger but the more complex it gets the more gainful it becomes.
There is value in difficulty hence we strive for the mark, there must be challenges so that you can take a challenge, that is why it is fun to play games. What keeps you playing no matter how hard it may seem? It is because you can do all things and that believe system keeps you moving on and trying over and over even when you fail.
But there are times when you are doing it right, but you do not get the results. This is where every entrepreneur`s virtue of patience will be tested. Patience in business does not mean to wait and idle away. It means to actively work, persistently and consistently even if the result is not forth coming. If you lack this virtue, I will encourage you to get a vase, fill it with good sand, plant a seed of your choosing, add the basic nutrients for the seed to develop into a plant, then watch and write down your experience. This activity will teach you patience. For every entrepreneur to succeed through the painful complexities, uncertainties and discouragements in business he/she must imbibe the virtue of patience.
What will happen if you took out the painful complexities, uncertainties and discouragements in business? Will business be better off because loss is painful and grossly affects our faith, hope and blurs our vision? What can make the difference will start with you and me as we remember to lift our business to where we believe it is supposed to be, knowing that there need be opposition in all things, negativity must exist for positivism to exist. When we fall due to the roughness of business road, do we sink down like water? No! we RISE! Remembering that a mighty change starts with small and simple means and not vice versa. Every entrepreneur has the power and ability to cause a greater change through a diligent and consistent effort amid business storms.
You need to stay focused to understand, don’t wonder where to go, don’t worry, think, yes think my fellow entrepreneur. Trust your instincts, there must be a clue, it is always there, somewhere. Keep calm, clear your mind and articulate, yes! This will get your thoughts organized, an organized thought is an organized action, when there are organized actions, you will get results and overshadow the pain to gainfully exist.
But I have achieved success why can`t I rest now, oh dear! There need be opposition in all things for the betterment of your business, of what use is SWOT (Strength, Weakness, Opportunities and Threat) analysis if the pain can be silenced forever. Your business can never reach the finish line because business does not have one, it only has shifting targets because business is made up of elements that are in a state of flux which you and I clearly know that the core of this element is People; which is very dynamic and constantly changing preferences and their wants insatiable.
