When you are working on your dreams some unexpected things might occur. But you can’t give up! Learn how to start over to achieve your goals!
In my entrepreneurial journey, there were a lot of exciting moments, a lot of great results but also there was a time where I lost everything. I hear this kind of stories very often and I know that many entrepreneurs and internet marketers need to face those hard situations. When people get pushed around by some unexpected situations and they just try to fit into that situation to get less pain, they are simply giving up on their dreams.
Giving up or quitting is not an option. It is not a solution to the problem. It’s a mindset damaging act which will force you to think that you are useless and that you are a loser. I don’t know what you are believing in, so I will call it as the universe. I believe that The Universe is putting us into a test to check how strong we are and to give us some hard to overcome experiences so later we can inspire others with our stories.
First, you need to accept your circumstances. Don’t exaggerate but see clearly where you are. Lying to yourself that everything is ok when it’s not won’t help you. Keep positive thoughts but you need to accept where you are right now. This will help you to move forward.
If it’s possible, try to find out why this situation or horrible circumstances occurred. If you will be able to find the root problem, then you will know how to start over without the same problem or mistake.
Moving forward without a clear goal will not bring major change. Of course, as moving forward you will get changes and opportunities which will help you with starting over again but you might get lost. Imagine yourself on the boat in the middle of the Ocean. If you have some kind of navigation or at least a compass you will know which way you should go to get to the shore. What if you are on the boat, you don’t have navigation and any other tool except an oar. What are your chances that you will get to the shore fast or what changes you have to even make it to the shore before a shark eat your boat?
The same this is with starting over again. No matter if it’s about business or life. You need to see where you are going because without it, you will be totally lost.
When I realized that I lost everything and that there is no money coming in I got panicked and depressed. No matter how good your mindset it, you are still a human being who is emotional. But, with the right mindset, it will be easy to cool down. My emotions were going crazy for about 1 hour. After that, I started to think how to start over because there was a lot of things going on and I needed to raise money fast. I know how to make money online so quickly a solution hit me.
When you get emotional your thoughts are not clear. You mind will come up with terrifying stories and problems that might never occur if you don’t let it. So the second step is to cool down. Instead of focusing on the problem you need to fully focus on the things that could help you solve the major problem.
If you are in a situation that you messed up, and for example, you lost everything because your clients got mad, you need to apologize. Before you ask yourself “How to start over” ask yourself “Who I pissed off?“. We might not even realize that someone is mad until we talk to that person again. As I said, I don’t know you and I don’t know your current situation but if there are people you pissed off, you need to make a piece with them. It doesn’t matter that it’s uncomfortable or that they might tell you some terrible things about you. If you know that there are people mad at you, you won’t be able to focus on changing your business or life.
Another thing is asking for help. Most of the people are scared to ask people for help. They feel so ashamed that they couldn’t grow their business by themselves. What I want you to realize that asking for a help or for advice is a sign of strength, not weakness. A weak person will accept the terrible circumstances and because of the EGO, this kind of person will prefer to be a victim than asking someone for a help.
This is a loser mentality.
To grow your business and to be a successful entrepreneur you need to get rid of your “Victim Mentality“. You can be a Successful Person or you can be a Victim but you can’t be both. You should remember it. People who are playing the role of the Victim are not willing to even think how to start over. Their main need is the Attention of Others. When Victims hear “poor you“, “It’s not your fault“, “You’ve done enough” they start to feel better. They are glad that someone noticed their struggle and by that, they don’t feel alone anymore. If you are thinking about starting over you need to stop playing the role of the victim because it doesn’t take you anywhere. I know it because I played the role of victim for years!
I hope you could get some tips on the mindset to change your business and life. I also hope you got some ideas on how to start over. The last thing I wanted to tell you is that I believe in you. No matter your circumstances, you can make it and one day I will hear your success story!
