Don’t forget to be grateful. Don’t forget to recognize the good times. Entrepreneurship is one heck of a roller coaster ride. One day you are happily celebrating an achievement and the next day something goes wrong and you begin to wonder what the heck you are doing with your life.
When those times hit, one of the best things you can do for yourself is to look back at the good times and be grateful for how far you’ve come. No, I’m not saying you should revel in past glory and become complacent. I am asking you to appreciate your journey and recognize the good times.
The hard times are going to come. It is part of the rules of the entrepreneur life. If you are not ready for the challenge then you have no business in this business.
You will get knocked down. There’s no question to it. But while you are down, don’t forget to recognize the good times and shake yourself and rise up. You may not yet be at where you want to get to but you are not at where you started either.
