You know what’s a total buzz kill for freedom? Burnout.
What separates the successful from the strugglers, is the successful do what they gotta do, no matter what.
But you know what? The truth is, sometimes you need a break, and the question is how do you know the difference between when you need to suck it up and push through, and when you need to take a break?
As an entrepreneur you’re going to have to do things you don’t want to do, things you don’t feel like doing, and even things you don’t have the energy for – such as picking up the phone, writing an email, attending a networking event, implementing new technology, correcting a team member and the list goes one.
And TOO BAD if you don’t feel like it. If you’re committed to your business, you do what it takes, it doesn’t matter how unenjoyable it is, or how tired and cranky you are.
Usually when you’re tired or not feeling energized it’s just your subconscious mind looking for a way to rationalize you not taking the uncomfortable actions you know will drive your business forward and you don’t want to let that win!
As Napolean Hill says in Think and Grow Rich that a burning desire is the starting point of all achievement, and that means you’ll do whatever it takes, even if it’s uncomfortable or unpleasant.
And you know what else? Sometimes doing what it takes, means taking a break.
You see there’s a HUGE difference between pushing through temporary discomfort – emotional or physical, and working past the point of effectiveness.
So how do you know when it’s just your subconscious mind playing tricks on you and when it’s really time to take a break?
