The emotional cost of entrepreneurship

Hi, straight into it.

Entrepreneurship is now seen as something that is cool and almost displayed as something fancy, the opposite to the reality of what it is. In this blog I'll discuss the emotional cost of being an entrepreneur and put simply: why it is not for everyone. You need incredible tenacity and will power to make entrepreneurship work in your favour.

The lonely nights, the long hours and the days in which you have no clue what to do. There are many of them in business and they can be a rough challenge to overcome, in addition to being very challenging for you to emotionally overcome. If you are among the few that enjoy these 3 inevitable parts of entrepreneurship, business if for you!

To succeed in business, you need to be able to take huge risks and have the stomach to stick with your idea or vision- even when the going gets tough. This sounds generic but it is too much mental and emotional stress for some to bare. You must also be passionate about what you are doing, or the likelihood of you pursuing it in the long run is drastically reduced.

To manage your emotions and stick with your rational decision making: this is the key to attaining success in entrepreneurship. The costs that come with entrepreneurship are mostly emotional set backs as the way in which you succeed in business, is by simply problem solving. The more problems you solve, the further you get in business.

The emotional cost of business, is easily managed as long as you are focused on the end goal, having a long term mindset will allow you to be able to withstand and get through the short term difficulties in business. Mental toughness is the single most valuable skill that you can have in business. If you can manage your emotions and stay focused, the future favours you.

To become successful in business, it’s real simple: follow the passion. The energy that you get from following and pursuing your passion can in turn make it easier for you to be able to handle setbacks and difficulties within business. Stay focused and being set on the end goal will allow you to sustain and handle challenging times.

To conclude, business is emotionally draining: especially at the starting stages of starting a company. It is easy to feel lost and feel as if it is impossible to make your idea a reality. You can do it as long as you stay focused on the end target, it’s real simple: work a little harder, smarter and try to be a little better everyday and success can’t deny you.
