Episode #45 Pitty Party to Micro Breakthrough


Businesses have days in the “low” and these days can drag on sometimes even for weeks. These are times when nothing good is happening and it often pulls your emotional and mental state down. My advice is simply do something different. Go out, do some yard work, work out, go shopping and simply do something different. You need to give yourself the time to breathe and relax. We all need it, unless we learn how to give ourselves time, we will simply go back to that point where more things won’t work as they should be and the cycle continues.

Doing the same thing again and again expecting a different result is the definition of insanity” 

When you’re trying to develop and grow your business, you can have periods of time when you’re just not doing as well as you anticipated and it’s easy to get down on yourself.

Time spent doing that is not going to return any dividends.

Tips for Avoiding “The Pity Party” – “Reboot” Your Brain

Go do something different.

Go do something physical like work out, do “yard work”, go for a walk.

What really helps Anthony is learning something new.

It doesn’t have to have anything to do with the challenge you’re having at the moment.

When you take a break to read a book, watch some YouTube Videos, or listen to podcasts on a walk, you can find new ways to approach the problem you’re having.

Sometimes, you may even find different paths to other problems or challenges in your business.

And, sometimes, you come to the realization that what you were struggling with wasn’t worth doing at all.  Go around it instead of pushing against it.

Physically leave your workspace- find new things to focus on.   Go to a coffee shop, a local park, take yourself out for lunch.

Learning something new helps you think differently. Do not continue putting more effort into producing the result you’re looking for if you’re not finding it.   Your brain just keeps repeating itself and you’re probably making mistakes you don’t even realize and you’re getting diminishing returns each time.
