We can be doing so well with our business: we have the motivation, we have the customers. Then, we hit a roadblock...
What is your roadblock? What is your obstacle? What’s holding you back? Whether you’re a brand new business owner or have been in business for years, we will always face an obstacle to our growth. See how you can identify yours and move past it. If you don't move past it you can be stuck in an uncomfortable situation for far too long with no work accomplished and then fall into an even deeper pit of self-pity.
Don't do that to yourself! Get up and get moving, it sounds so cliche but the right thing to do when you've hit a block in the road is to figure out how to break it down, move around it, or move
Here are some ways to get out of your own way, or get things out of your way!
1. Put work on pause.
Sometimes you need to get out of the front seat and take a break with your business (if you can). Doing something else to get your mind off things can be just the thing you need to get your mind back on track.
2. Take a walk.
Get some sunlight and fresh air, use your imagination and think of ways to help you in your current situation.
3. Eat your favorite dessert and watch a movie.
Believe us, it helps.
4. Write down your problems in order from worse/hardest to not so bad/easier and tackle them one at a time.
5. Get help.
If necessary hire an assistant or ask a friend for some advice or help for a few days.
6. Change your perspective.
Often when you change the way you look at things, the things you at change. Sometimes the obstacle in our way is really just a mirage and actually easy to get through.
