How to Handle Bad Days As An Entrepreneur

Last week, I drowned my laptop.

*You know, just because I FELT like it.*

In case you can’t read the sarcasm dripping from this post, I didn’t intentionally fry my laptop. Unfortunately, I put it in my purse and a water bottle leaked all over the main tool I use to run my business.

It’s safe to say that was a pretty bad day.

Have you ever had a day like that, friend? Maybe you wake up on the wrong side of the bed, spill your coffee, your plans fall through, or you destroy your computer… whatever it is, we all have bad days, especially as business owners.

*In fact, I don’t believe you can even BE an entrepreneur without bad days.*

However, last week when I mourned the death of my MacBook Pro, I realized I had a choice…

>>On my worst day as an entrepreneur, I realized I get to CHOOSE my “hard.”<<

Of course, it sucks to ruin a laptop… But everything is hard.

  • Marriage is hard… divorce is hard.
  • Losing weight is hard… being overweight is hard.
  • Planning social media is hard… not using social media is hard.

We were never guaranteed that running a business or chasing our dreams would be easy, but we are blessed to choose our “hard”, my friend. 

>>You will ALWAYS have to choose something “hard” because life isn’t easy. But will you choose the one that pushes you toward your goals or the one that keeps you stuck where you are?<<

I could easily say that my day is ruined or I could choose to look at the bright side. 

I have a roof over my head, there’s water running out of my faucet, my family is healthy, and I have spare change in my car… Although it was a bad day, there is so much to be grateful for.

On your worst day, what will you choose?
