A lot of my clients worry. Some of my clients worry a lot; really, a whole lot. They worry about their own clients, about their cash flow, about networking, about making ends meet.
Actually, one or two of my clients worry about everything. And they call me and I try to help them, because that's what I'm here for, after all. And it's something I really find very easy to do. Because I'm not much of a worrier, you see.I don't generally get worked up about stuff. Don't get me wrong, I do get concerned when things don't go the way I'd planned, when client plans and projects don't come together the way they should, when things get delayed and unexpected problems arise. And actually, those who've worked closely with me will say I do get worked up when things go wrong, but I tend to get calmer the more serious the issue becomes.
But do I worry? Not really. You see, so many things that happen in business are beyond our control. We come across obstacles every single day and the majority of them are caused by other things and other people. The bottom line is, you can worry all you like, but if you have no control over the problem, then all the worrying in the world won't solve it.
Worrying takes an awful lot of energy. It consumes you and causes untold amounts of stress. And, most importantly, it distracts you by filling your brain and preventing you from doing anything else. And yes, it steals your joy, and that's horrible. Running your own business is tough, really tough. And sometimes the only thing that keeps you going is the sheer joy of loving what you do. So if that gets taken away, it's incredibly hard to motivate yourself and without that motivation, you'll never achieve anything.
Just let go of the worry. It's not going to change anything for the better and it only makes you feel worse. Instead, make a cup of coffee, go sit somewhere quiet and breathe... By all means ask yourself why you're in this position. Did you do anything wrong? Could you have prevented whatever it was from happening? If the answers yes, then don't beat yourself up about it; we're all fallible, we all make mistakes.
My father always used to say "We learn by our mistakes, it's just a shame it's a hell of a hard way to learn" So if you could have done things differently, then resolve to make every effort to get it right next time. Turn the negative into a positive learning experience.
Unfortunately, so many things that go wrong are genuinely beyond our control and if that's what the problem is, then don't waste your time analysing what went wrong. There's not much you can learn for these situations and very little opportunity to prevent them happening again. So it's really not worth investing any energy in.
At the end of the day, pick your battles wisely and only invest energy in things you can actually change.
As the saying goes
"God give me strength to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."
Enough said
About the Author: There are so many things that go wrong in business that we can do nothing about.
Why waste time and energy worrying about them,when we could be doing something far more productive instead?
