Not admitting you're failing?

Updated: Jan 2

When you're struggling to make your business as successful as you thought it would be, it can feel like you're failing. Quite often, people who feel like this aren't honest about how they are feeling with those closest to them. We live in a fake world, with shiny Instagram posts proclaiming overnight successes and seven-figure wins on a daily basis. If you aren't in that place, you can start to feel like you're drowning.

The question you need to ask yourself is, am I truly failing? If you haven't hit your quarterly goal, a few times, that isn't a failure. If you consistently aren't managing to hit your goals, that might be a failure. If your business is slower to start than you thought it would be, that isn't failure. If you're not getting any work or selling any products at all within the first year, that might be failure.
