The day to day requirements of running a business can be tedious and out right frustrating at times. When a problem seems impossible to fix we sometimes grow a callous, accepting its continued existence as if there is nothing left to do about it. The problem is that something like this can taint our overall disposition; it can corrupt your attitude affecting various aspects of your life, some of which you would have never even considered related. Thus why it is so important to take a moment and recenter yourself each and every day. Honestly ask yourself if you are ignoring a problem because there is nothing that you can do about it, or if it is because you have accepted defeat. If the former, then it is the perfect time to start exploring other opportunities. There is no need to stress out about something which you have absolutely no control over. More importantly, the only way the you may be able to overcome certain obstacles is to drop them completely so that they can be revisited at a later date. Time can be a powerful ally if used properly, capable of literally moving mountains. Sometimes you need to regroup so that you can find other approaches to a problem, utilizing various resources and opportunities that you have discovered throughout the process to overcome it. Now, if you have determined that in fact there may be a solution the the issue but that you simply do not possess the energy or will power to see it through, this is a different kind of problem. Social support systems are crucial in these situations as they can give you that little extra boost when stuck down in the dumps, or a swift kick in the ass once in a while. Alternatively, you can take a deep introspective look inside to try to rediscover the initial reason you decided to open your own business. Get back to the basics, find your core motivator, and restructure everything last thing that you do around it. It can be so easy to get lost in the details and to forget why we are even doing all of this; why we are working ourselves to death or dealing with this kind of stress. If you take just a single moment to yourself each and every day in order to consciously remember your ultimate goal, it will make it a lot easier to get though some of the difficult times that you will inevitably face.
