Power of Letting Go: An Essential Skill For An Entrepreneur
An Entrepreneur is not always the one who makes companies or startups. One can only become an entrepreneur if he/she possess the essential skills. These skills not only help to resolve issues, but also a great time saving. One essential skill is the power of letting go. I believe that once in a while, we all experiences that day of disappointment. May be your expected capital was not good as you expected, or the first person who you employed quit his job or you could negotiate as much as you wanted with material suppliers. We all faced tragic disappointments and Googled “How to Get Over Disappointment” and read all the junk written by junkies.
Time For Yourself
I want to raise this issue, this disappointment to another level. I want to examine it andanalyze it andput it somewhere to see how can I or You alter it. I think we can take disappointment as a solution, not a problem. It is a solution to a lot of problems. Problems of stress, strain, mental confusions, fatigue, over concentration, back pain, neck pain, headache, eye pain in doing stuff, achieving the milestones, bringing your ideas to reality etc. Think about it. The disappointment gave you something that you needed the most: “Time For Yourself”.
Now you have some time for yourself to think and not think, to feel and not to feel, time to relax and not relax, time to have red wine and ponder on World’s unresolved mysteries or not to, to sip a coffee or not to. You just need to do it and you will feel the power of letting go. The power is within you to let go of your stress, troubles even for 2 minutes.
