“Step away from the desk lady, you’ve been at this way too long.”
Knowing when to stay and when to go, the art of #entrepreneurship!
You know when you’ve been on your computer too long and it just freezes?π€·ββοΈπ€·ββοΈπ€·ββοΈ
Hitting control, alt, delete…and still nothing.πππ
As your patience starts to melt away, you stare pensively at the screen, waiting for “something” to happen.
Only it doesn’t.
Ugh, what is going on you scream in your head, work already, and still, NOTHING.πππ
So, you are forced to turn it off, unplug it and wait a few minutes and try again.πππ
How many times have you had to do that in your lifetime?πππ
Turns out, life is like that as well.πππ
Sometimes, you are trying SO hard to make something happen. π₯π₯π₯
Like, you are giving it EVERYTHING you got. πͺπͺπͺ
From every angle no less.πππ
And yet, NOTHING. π€¦ββοΈπ€¦ββοΈπ€¦ββοΈ
You get frustrated.πππ
Maybe even shout out: βThatβs it, I quit.β
Only you donβt. πππ
What you do, is walk away from the situation, just like when your computer freezes. π₯Άπ₯Άπ₯Ά
You step away. πββοΈπββοΈπββοΈ
You walk AWAY from the situation and βREFRESHβ your ideas.π·π·π·
Making big dreams come true doesnβt come easy, NO MATTER WHAT THEY ARE!πππ
There is a famous quote from Tom Hanks that I absolutely love:
βIf it wasnβt hard, everyone would do it. Itβs the HARD that makes it GREAT.β
So, the next time you find yourself frustrated over a situation, no matter what it is, simply step away.πββοΈπββοΈπββοΈ
If you are constantly staring at the same four walls, seeing the same people, looking at the same shiz on your phone.
That’s exactly what you are going to keep seeingπππ
It’s called, a ARE IN NEED OF a change of sceneryπππ
And WE ALL NEED IT FROM TIME TO TIME!
So, on those days when you are ready to hit your head against the wall because things aren’t quite going your way, here are some of my suggestions to get yourself back on track:
Talk a walk outside.πββοΈπββοΈπββοΈ
Go see a movie.πππ
Have lunch with a good friend.πππ
Take a vacation, even if itβs for the day. Go somewhere youβve always wanted to go only never made the time.πππ
Be around people youβve never met before. Go to a networking meeting and talk to strangers. You never know what ideas can come from it?πππ
If you live near the ocean, go to the beach. There is NOTHING better in this world than to breath in that ocean air. Sure cure for anything that is bothering you.π³π³π³
Go on a mental vacation.
Read a trashy novel.
One of those magazines that you have been collecting only never had time to get to.
Take a trip to your local library and grab a copy of βHow to Win Friends and Influence Peopleβ by Dale Carnegie.
If youβve never read it, get it now.
It is a MUST-read for everyone on this planet.πππ
Sign-up for a class or seminar. Even better if it is something you know nothing about.πππ
AND last but not least and probably the most important:
Be good to yourself.
We tend to beat ourselves up when we are frustrated or sad.
That is exactly the time we need to be EXTRA good to ourselves.
Good thoughts come when we are FEELING GOOD!πππ
That’s a wrap!
