Every business owner and entrepreneur have more setbacks than they want to admit. Some can overcome all challenges and rise to the top, while others get discouraged and don't recover, leading to business failure.
Success has everything to do with your mindset and the habits you build for dealing with challenges.
Don't become the victim with no control. Accept that change is normal and possibly the reason you saw an opportunity to start your business. Look for new opportunities.
For example, many restaurants closed during the pandemic but some quickly refocused on home delivery and found a way to weather the storm.
As you search for alternatives, don't let your emotions overrule your logical decision process.
Instead, use your initial process for evaluating markets, customer needs, and financial implications. Then, allow the challenge to broaden your thinking.
Don't try to carry the weight on your shoulders only. Team members are often closer to the customer and have some valuable insights.
Ask advice from peers, your advisory board, outside experts and mentors. Keep an active mentor relationship with a few peers to discuss your business challenges and strategy.
Don't allow a setback to sidetrack you from your vision. There is seldom one path to a goal, so take the time to re-focus on your vision and find alternate routes to reach it, perhaps using a much better idea than the first.
Ensure to learn from your progress and challenges. A business challenge can remind you that your interests have changed or that you did not use the best path.
Do not play to your weaknesses when analysing the situation.
See every challenge as an opportunity to learn and provide leadership to your team. They need to view you as a role model for their success.
One of the leading causes of business failure is giving up too soon. Building a business is a journey, not a sprint.
You can overcome almost any disappointment if you are fully determined, motivated, and committed.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
