There has been a lot of talk about Blue Monday.
Now, I’ve always been quite open about mental health as a person and a business owner – partly because they’re the same person.
I’m just Ash.
Ash that runs a business and Ash the person who struggles sometimes.
Running a business can be a lonely place at times and if you feel like you’re carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders, and it can help to share that load.
Now, the other thing people are talking about right now is January, planning for the year ahead, and what the challenges will be this year…
And most importantly, how they’ll overcome them.
2023 – What Does It Look Like?
I’ve been there, done that and got the t-shirt when it comes to struggling and doing all the wrong things – believe me.
But some of my greatest successes would never have happened without my biggest failures.
As Wayne Gretzky once said (and Michael Scott hilariously plagiarised), you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. Sure, that might sound like the sort of thing you’d stick on an inspirational cat poster – but there’s a lesson in there.
Inactivity will never win the day.
And burying your head in the sand and hoping the issue will go away will only lead to much bigger problems down the line.
If you’ve ever procrastinated on a task, you’ll know the feeling. You put the task off for so long that you’re then obligated to do it, whether you’re forced by a deadline or just out of necessity. But then when you sit down and do the task, it’s often nowhere near as laborious or troublesome as you feared.
The Road To Success
The road to success is littered with obstacles but if you let those obstacles stop you in your tracks, you’ll never proceed.
It’s about finding a way to navigate those troubled waters, predicting what might prevent you from achieving your goals – and heading it off before it becomes a serious issue.
Having a network of people who you can bounce ideas off, talk through problems with, and lean on in times of need can make a MASSIVE difference…
It’s why we do what we do with our Locker Room clients at The Business Clubhouse.
Whatever your situation, however this year is looking, and whatever your goals might be, make sure you share the load.
