The Growing Entrepreneur encourages you to find a way to “defeat your self-defeat” because you can’t be your own worst enemy and still experience success. You have to tap into your potential before you can come close to achieving any of your dreams.
Stop saying you can’t and just start doing!
It’s the only way you will find your way. Push out all the negative thoughts and discard all the excuses for why you haven’t acted yet. Focus on what you can do, not what you can’t do!
1. Make a plan
2. Follow through on your plan.
3. Don’t give up.
4. Reap the rewards.
Do you feel like a total failure in life?
Do you especially feel this way every Monday? If so, you probably have the beginning-of-the-week blues, as usual.
It happens to everyone from time to time, including me. You don’t even know how many times I’ve wanted to quit my business. Sometimes, the only reason I carry on is because I want people who have been down tough roads believe they can succeed.
We all have to talk ourselves out of this slump so we can make this the most productive week ever!
Remember, failure is only temporary. In fact, it’s not as if you failed at all. Your life is “to be continued” tomorrow, next week, and next year if no unforeseen accident takes your life.
Therefore, try not to stay blue all day – or at least cheer up by tomorrow. The world needs you!

If you’re a growing entrepreneur, dare to dream. However, in the process, you must remember to live for now. Wondering if the future will bring better success than today will not help you achieve your goals.
Remember to enjoy every single day. Don’t just survive each day while working toward a milestone. Otherwise, before you know it, you will have lived your entire life feeling like you’re reaching but never grasping.
Have a Plan, but Don’t Worry
Many people wake up each day gritting their teeth while they say to themselves, “I’ll be able to enjoy life when I make enough money.”
However, what if that time never came? What if you were always going to be this poor? Yes, it’ hard to have any fun or go anywhere, and it’s hard to help people when you feel broke. However, try to still relax once in a while and find a way to still make connections with other people when you’re not working.
Spend time with your family, too. It might feel tough to be in a position of feeling inferior if you don’t make as money money as they do. However, in the end what does it matter? Maybe you spend most of your time trying to make a better life for yourself, but at least a few times a year – or even once a month – remember your most important relatives and friends. Furthermore, spend as much time with your children and spouse as you can.

I’ll be the first to tell you I’ve done plenty wrong in my life. However, I also know it’s never late to turn my life around, and I would say the same for everyone else. In the process, I want to do more of the right thing again, just because it is the right thing to do. I encourage everyone else to do the same.
Running a Business with a Conscience
Business owners face dilemmas every day, especially when struggling financially. They might feel a bit desperate and tempted to take on work that otherwise does not match up with their moral or ethical beliefs. However, they must ask themselves whether or not they will regret it later. Is it really worth it?
Should business owners decide to pursue a particular market just because they’re desperate to make money?
This answer lies within each individual. Some people choose to compromise during tough times, such as during a recession or right after the holiday season. However, we all have to ask ourselves where in the end it will lead us? Doing what we don’t even believe in causes us to not believe in ourselves, and at that point, no one else will believe in us either. We have to have faith we can make it without succumbing to moral degradation – neither in business nor in our personal lives.
