The zany world of mindset

Embrace the Juggling Act

Congratulations on being a small business owner – the ultimate multitasker! But let’s be honest; you’ve probably had moments when juggling clients, deadlines, and your social life made you feel like a circus clown. Fear not, dear readers, for you can master “Juggling 101”! Just don a clown nose, invest in a top hat (mandatory for extra focus) by hiring productive & competent employees, mastering the art of delegating, set a foundation for your business with an in-depth business plan, organize, manage, lead and last but not least, learn and become proficient in several different domains such as marketing and accounting… keep juggling away! Not only will you impress your clients, but you’ll also entertain your employees, and isn’t that what leadership is all about?


The Thrill of the Roller Coaster Ride

Welcome aboard the “Entrepreneurial Express”! You know the feeling – one moment, you’re soaring high with a lucrative deal, and the next, you’re plummeting into the abyss of uncertainty. But don’t worry, folks, the key to surviving this crazy ride is the “Scream Therapy Technique.” The next time your business takes an unexpected turn, just let out a primal scream – it works like a charm, and it’s way cheaper than therapy! If you’re not the screaming type… Here are some simple ways to help maintain a positive attitude through the ups and downs of business. 

Stop complaining. Be curious. Embrace laughter. Embrace learning. 

Surround yourself with positive people. 

Fill your mind with positive input.

Control your language, be conscious of the words you use when speaking and thinking. 

Create a routine for the day for a good fall-back structure.

Be nice to other people. 

Don’t rely on an outside source of positivity, carry positivity with you at all times.

Create high points in each day and week, take breaks outside or away from work when possible, eat healthy, consider a walk, solitude, a few moments of silence, find a place to read a book not related to work. 

Assume responsibility, and choose your response, you will be more positive seeing life as something you have some control over rather than at the mercy of fate. 

Decide your reaction to known problems ahead of time. 

Breathe deeply. 

Make a mission statement. (Both personal and one for business). When you feel like you have purpose, you will be positive. 

Have personal goals. 

Remember that no one owes you anything. Negativity is the standard state of existence if you think the world owes you. 

Get rid of this attitude by remembering: it’s up to me to make things happen. Hard work is what brings good things. Be willing to accept change quickly. When things are difficult, keep going.
