No matter what you’re doing, there will eventually be a time when you find that you hit a wall. You’ll encounter an obstacle that you can’t seem to overcome, and this often prevents you from growing your business or, in some instances, improving as a person! These are the times when you really need to take a step back and rethink your mindset.
In this podcast, we discuss how to overcome these barriers and find your way to the other side.
How to Conquer Your Walls
When we encounter walls, they’re often imaginary. That’s not to say that they don’t exist. Our “walls” are very real, but they are often larger in our minds! To overcome obstacles, both in life and in business, we need to recognize and adapt to hardship.
The “I Can” Mindset
One of the most common problems that everyone runs into, regardless of whether they’re an entrepreneur, is the dreaded “I can’t” mindset. When we face a challenge, it often seems daunting. We fear the challenge, and our minds justify our fear by saying “I can’t”.
If you want to rise above and overcome, however, you need to get into the habit of thinking, instead, “I can”! Look around you and see what solutions may be available, even if they seem preposterous.
In both business and life, it often happens that you’re not the only one encountering this problem. Think of when you’ve had a computer problem. When you looked it up, you probably found forum posts from people with the same issue. Likewise, when you hit a wall, there’s guaranteed to be someone else out there with the same wall.
Reach out! Ask others if they’ve encountered the same problems. If they haven’t, you can work together towards a solution. If they have, you now have a valuable resource to tap into for knowledge.
When all else fails, perseverance is our greatest asset. People were made for endurance. The hunters and gatherers used to stalk their prey until it tired itself out. Today, you can use that same energy.
As children, we have that drive. We know that we can do something, so we keep trying to do it. Unfortunately, as time wears on, we often lose this sense of “I can do it”. Sometimes, it’s because someone older than us shot us down or told us we “can’t”…It’s time to reclaim the “I CAN” attitude of a child!
Need some help? We find that the best way to motivate yourself to overcome challenges is a four-step process:
Remember: Walls are Ramps!
When it comes to business (and everyday life), it’s important to remember that every challenge is a chance to learn something new. Every wall can be a ramp to level up. No matter how many times you may fail, you’ve learned something. Whether you’re trying to find a way to juggle your work-life balance or struggling to make your business take off, you’re in the midst of growth.
