I’ve heard from a ton of entrepreneurial friends about how things have been slowing down…
I know for us biz people this can be worrisome. Entrepreneurs are known for the hustle, the making something out of nothing, the self-made dream… but here is my thought- everything in life has an ebb and flow.
There are times for growth AND times for slowing. I believe it’s important to spiritually follow the seasons, as fall is here, and winter approaches we can choose to try to force ourselves to wake up, do more, hustle, or we can follow the natural path- slow down, reflect, internalize.
There is always a happy medium, it’s not time to hide, or come to a halt yet, but we are approaching that time.
My point is it’s ok when things change, it’s good.
Uncomfortable shows us where we can work on ourselves. As entrepreneurs (and I know this is true for myself) I think it’s scary when we slow down (whether this is self-made or the economy/ our industry) because then we have time to think, usually we move so quickly we don’t-and that’s when our fear comes up- we think things like, ‘what if I cant get momentum again,’ ‘what if it was just beginners luck,’ but those things are just fear. We can and will do anything we put our minds to (when the time is right.)
There is a reason for all change, not everything should be in a growth phase all the time, so if this resonates with you, sustain, and reflect my friend I’m with you, I’m learning this too
