Grow Through the Tough Times in Business
You will face tough days as network marketers (and entrepreneurs). Some will be more challenging than others, and those who make it through will tell you the good always outweighs the bad. However, when faced with the challenges, it’s tempting just to quit, ‘take a hiatus’ or blame the business as a whole. And so, in today’s post, I want to share three tips to help you grow through the tough times.
I believe this is something we all need because the reality is when we push those poor feelings ‘under the rug,’ it plants those seeds of doubt. So, knowing how to manage them will help preserve self-confidence, belief and faith in your journey.
Grow Through the Tough Times with Self-Awareness
We face struggles, and the more we understand that this is part of the journey, the more self-aware we can become. So see, I would encourage you to be mindful of your emotional state. Be very present in how you are feeling both physically and mentally. When we become more aware (instead of going through the motions), we can gain a good grasp on the days we need a little more loving on ourselves.
If you find yourself upset or angry for what appears to be ‘no reason, take a moment and ask yourself what’s going on. For example, maybe you find yourself frustrated with prospects or discouraged with the word ‘no’ … dig deeper — why at this moment, are you unable to brush it off?
The more aware you become about your reactions, the easier it is to grow through the more challenging times.
Be Open to Learning
This one might seem a ‘little out of place when it comes to how to grow through the tough times, but … let me help make sense of it! Those who overcome challenges and obstacles believe they can learn, grow and adapt to any situation. This belief carries leaders (or aspiring ones) through tough times.
You’ve probably heard sayings like ‘what is this here to teach me?‘ It may seem redundant or cliché, but do yourself a favor and try it next time you feel like you’re facing a challenge much too big to handle! Surprise yourself.
Shift your Focus
The last point I want to touch on while working on how to grow through the tough times is this;
Instead of focusing on the problem, dissecting it from every angle, focus on something else.
You might spend time auditing your content, focusing on ways to improve it.
Maybe you might focus on teaching one of your team members a new skill. You might even scrap work altogether and concentrate on your golf swing. Whatever you do, give your mind a break from the problem. Come back with a fresh perspective and a healthier mindset.
