Little Things are not Small
Entrepreneurship, solopreneurship, and running a micro-business is a journey that requires a lot of motivation to stay on track and overcome the obstacles that come with it. It can be difficult to stay motivated when things aren’t going our way, or when progress is slow.
It’s a rollercoaster of emotions; especially for those of us just starting out on this journey. There are moments of excitement and success as well as moments of frustration and failure. It can be easy to get discouraged, especially when things don’t go as planned. However, it is important to remember why you decided to become an entrepreneur in the first place. Quitting is not an option – no matter how hard it gets. I keep reading stories about those who were about to give up and then it clicked.
Do not be afraid to ask for help. The journey is often a lonely one, but we don’t have to go it alone. Connect with other entrepreneurs and mentors who can provide support and guidance. There are also plenty of online resources, such as blogs and forums, that can be helpful.
We should take the time to celebrate our successes and learn from our failures. It can be easy to get discouraged when things don’t go as planned, but it is important to take a step back and appreciate it.
Every time we achieve a goal or milestone, let’s celebrate it! Celebrating our successes can help us stay motivated, as it can provide a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. Rewarding ourselves for a job well done can be a great way to stay motivated.
Lastly, keep believing that little things are not small. Focus on the immediate task in front of you, not that huge goal that seems so far away. Stuff adds up that’s how we get there. And don’t listen to naysayers or get caught up in comparison-you’re on your timeline at your pace. Try to improve, learn something every day and at the end of each day be 1% better.
