Do you ever think to yourself, “It would be so much easier if I just worked for someone else.” I do. I contemplate that thought almost every day, especially the not-so-good days. If I just gave up and was employed by someone else then I would have less to stress about, I would have a consistent income, I would have set work hours, I don’t need to work AFTER work hours, I can just clock in, and clock out..
But I can’t, I’m just not that type of person. I’ve tried to give up and quit. I’ve tried over and over again but the result ends up the same. I’m unhappy.
I’m unhappy working for someone else.
I’m unhappy because I’m not being challenged to work at my full potential.
I’m unhappy because of office politics.
I’m unhappy because I still have to work hard, but now it’s not for myself.
I’m unhappy because I start dreaming of the entrepreneur’s life again.
I’m unhappy because I don’t have a passion for what I’m doing.
I’m here to tell you friends. The stress may feel too difficult to overcome. Like you want to just throw in the towel and give up. It’ll happen a lot. But don’t let it, fight for what you have been working so hard for. Have faith! All the struggle will show you what you’re made of. Some days you’ll feel defeated and other days you’ll feel victorious, that’s ok. We can’t win them all, but in the end you should be happy.
Your business should make you happy.
Your business should give you purpose.
Your business should be rewarding.
Your business should challenge you.
Your business should be your passion.
So live on fellow entrepreneurs! Be happy.
