We all get in a funk from time to time. Whether it's dealing with difficult business clients or entrepreneur fatigue, it's easy for our thoughts to spin out of control. I like to refer to quotes and sayings for inspiration especially during times of uncertainty.
Running a business can be exciting and exhausting at the same time. I used to say yes to anyone and everyone who wanted to hire me, especially when I was starting up.
Over time, I burned out.
Whether it was dealing with people who kept trying to pick my brain without the intention to hire me or working with unresponsive graphic designers, I realized I needed to get better at communicating boundaries.
Yet, it can be emotionally depleting to have to communicate boundaries day in and day out. I reached a point where I didn't even want to do Pinterest marketing anymore.
The thing about running a business is that it's like being on an emotional roller coaster ride every day. It can easily be a love hate relationship.
While I enjoy being a creative and supporting businesses that I truly believe in, sometimes the frustrating aspects of entrepreneurship can get the best of me. So how do I get myself out of a funk when this happens?
Aside from listening to business related podcasts to reading personal development books, I find quotes to be great sources for inspiration.
Sometimes repeating these quotes as mantras or affirmations can shift my mood instantly. Here are 12 great quotes that can help you get out of that funk too.
