Building a Business has its ups and downs. There will be times where you’ll reach your goals and hit achievements so unimaginable that you’ll literally feel on cloud nine.
There’s also going to be times where you’ll make mistakes and things just seem to fail miserably. These are the times where you’ll probably worry and start to question why you even started this whole thing.
As humans it’s easy to invest our emotions into everything we do in our business, especially in the Outcome when it doesn’t turn out our way. This is what makes aspiring entrepreneurs give up at the first sign of failure, they let their emotions get the better of them and don’t see that failure is A NORMAL PART of the process.
Attachment is based on fear and insecurity. When you become attached to specific “known” outcomes of your business, your mind becomes rigid and so focused on it that you lose creativity and all sight of the unknown possibilities. You stress easily and your self-worth becomes based on your results.
Kipling’s quote summarizes where I’m trying to get at: “If you can meet Triumph and Disaster and treat those two imposters just the same”.
Detach yourself away from the outcome. Whether it be a good or bad one, treat it as neither because both are in a sense flukish anomolies. Instead of reacting to them… relax, be neutral, learn from them and let them be valuable lessons that guide you towards your next goal.
No matter what it is, outcomes should only be there to make you grow and become a mentally stronger entrepreneur.
Do you find yourself emotionally invested in the outcomes of your business? I’d love to hear your thoughts below.
