The duality of entrepreneurial success
Posted on 12th March 2019 at 16:51
So today I want to talk about success, and the duality of success.
There are two sides. Like the old cassette tapes, we’ve got the A-side and we’ve got the B-Side...
So, the A-side is the side where things go well, there’s joy, there’s excitement. We’re participating, it feels great, you’re winning, you’re making progress. Things are all working out just as you wanted them to, or even better.
And then there’s a B-side. So the B-side to the success is the pressure, the stress, the disappointment when perhaps things haven’t quite worked out the way you want them to work out. The anxiety, what if things go wrong?
Now it doesn’t matter who you are, we all go through that. We all have the A-side and the B-side. But the thing is, when you look out on social media, you probably only see the A-side to many things.
Seeing the A-side to many things, and many people, their situations and their circumstances can sometimes make you dwell on your B-side: the pressure, the disappointment, the anxiety, because things perhaps aren’t going the way you want them to.
So, here’s the thing; there’s always going to be noise out there, there is always going to be a B-side. There is always going to be some kind of pressure, or things happening out there around us.
The key here is to not let it control you, for you to be in control.
Remember when it comes to responsibility, there are two words. You have got the ability, to respond to any given situation. You get to choose.
As individuals, the key thing is how we choose to respond to something that happens. So, when your B-side shows up and things don’t quite work out, don’t let it control you. Listen to your gut and always keep moving forward, because if you keep moving forward, you will progress. Even if you get the feedback that something didn’t quite work that well, or maybe that wasn’t the best next step, you still got feedback and you can do something with that. You can still move forward.
So whatever happens, be prepared for the B-side, but also be prepared for the A-side. Get in control, plan things and trust yourself.
Learn to trust yourself, because you can create absolutely amazing things for yourself.
