When life knocks you down -Get up

When life knocks you down

One of my favorite motivational quotes of all time by Les Brown is:

“When life knocks you down, try to land on your back. Because if you can look up, you can get up”

In the recent Bee Influenced episode 007: When Life knocks you down, I talk about the importance of getting back up.

One thing I have noticed in studying successful people, and getting the privilege to interview successful entrepreneurs, is they all have gone through major struggles. We always see the successes that entrepreneurs achieve, but never the struggling stories they face.

These struggling stories of entrepreneurs is what fascinates myself, and is what Bee Influenced is built on.

In a recent podcast episode with Blaine Walberg, we talk about some of the struggles you may face as an entrepreneur. In the case of Blaine, the one thing that always kept him going was his passion for his line of work and love for his family.

Life can knock you down many ways

Let’s face it, you’re going to get kicked in the teeth; time and time again in your business and personal life.

Whether it’s a lawsuit being filed against your company.

A customer decides to switch to a competitor.

or

You go through a relationship break up.

No matter what the case is, you are going to face adversity in your business and personal life.

However, the question is always what do you do when life knocks you down?

Take back your life

For some people, our days are very much of habit. We get up and do the same thing over and over again. Some people do the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result each time.

We become blind to what we are actually doing and fail to not have a sense of direction of where we are going and what we wish to accomplish.

One man described this very well.

Insanity: “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result”. – Albert Einstein

Entrepreneurs are going to go through some real struggles. However, never loose sight of where you are going and how you will get there.

In the “Bee Influenced podcast 004: Why You Need Direction In Business” found HERE  I talk exactly about this problem that many entrepreneurs face!

As an entrepreneur you need to be open to trying new things. You need to explore different strategies and execute on them. Yes, of course there will be challenges along the way, but it’s your duty to overcome them.

When you think you’ve accomplished one obstacle, another will appear.

Try new things.

Don’t be afraid to fail.

You are going to get knocked down multiple of times, but what you do afterwards is more important.
