Hopefully you’ve noticed the tag of my blog is Seeking Perpetual Inspiration as Entrepreneurial Fuel. This means a lot to me. Doing another startup, I am fully aware of the emotional roller coaster that comes with starting something from nothing. Being that this isn’t my first rodeo, I’m finding the highs are higher and the lows aren’t quite as low… but still they are there. I’m also noticing that the cycles are faster. Being well aware of the roller coaster of ups and downs, I can appreciate when I’m in a low, and I’m more efficiently able to move to necessary steps that get to the next high.
The most useful tool for me personally in all this has been this blog. The writings and “teachings” of how to create and hang on to positive energy, good thoughts, and courage, are even more powerful to me personally when I’m publicly touting their importance. When I hit those hard days, it has been neat to read my own writings and find motivation to power ahead.
I should also mention I also get a ton of good energy from helping other startup entrepreneurs through their hard times. By reaching out and giving to others, it’s the most refreshing thing I can do. It’s action. It’s movement. It’s just good stuff.
