Well all have them days were we simply feel like we just cannot carry on any longer, no matter how mentally strong someone is everyone will have their down times what’s important is picking ourselves up and pushing right back at life!
Hopefully these little tips will be as much of use as they are to me, at the end of the day what’s the point of having information if you cannot share it!
1. Firstly the main thing I can advise is take yourself away from the problem, the worst thing you can possibly do is stress yourself about something and still be sitting their trying to deal with it. Take a break, relax have a nice warm shower and come back to it when you have a more calm and relaxed mindset. Not only will you have a clearer and calmer mindset but you will also observe the situation in a more positive manner.
2. My second little tip I do in order to relax myself is going to the gym. Physical activities are perfect way to relieve stress. As the Greeks used to say a healthy mind needs to be complimented with a healthy body. When taking up physical activities the body release s positive enzymes to the brain which give you a much more positive and healthy mindset.
3. Set yourself a timetable! I cannot stress out important this is, if you have your own business you have to make sure you do not bring your work home or become constantly stuck to your chair answering emails and packaging orders until you end up falling asleep on your keyboard. It conflicts with your social & family life and you’ll constantly be under stress, just don’t do it!
4. The motto always is “the customer is always right” although I agree with this to a certain extent there will always be a rotten apple out of the bunch. Some customers are hard to deal with but don’t let that discourage you, keep a brave face on, smile and move forward, at the end of the day getting upset, angry or frustrated will not solve the situation, hardship and struggle is a part of business and something that all of us business owners need to overcome.
5.consistency. This single word is so important when it comes down to business. It is easy to become lazy and not put in as much effort but one thing I have personally learned throughout my life is that nothing comes free and the same rule applies in the business world. Regular advertisement on social media websites, forums and blogs will improve your ranks in Google but it does require regular consistency, if you are consistent I can promise you all your hard work us guaranteed to pay off.
Hopefully some of you can use this information to your advantage and I hope that it works for all of you as much as it has for me.
If I have missed out of certain points do let me know and I would love to hear what keeps you men and women motivated and positive during hard times and what methods you tend to implement in order to have more of a positive outlook.
Thank you in advance!
