Do You Possess Star Quality?

Encourager-In-Chief: April 14th, 2021

Learn how to shine.

One of the hardest things to do when you suffer a setback is finding ways to rise above it. This is a crucial skill for anyone running a business. The nature of entrepreneurialism is that you are trying things you never tried before. In some cases, you may be trying something that no one has ever tried before. That scenario is fraught with temporary setbacks and disappointments. However, this comes with the territory. As an entrepreneur, you should expect them and learn the best ways to handle them.

Remember that every setback you face contains a learning opportunity. Education goes farther than your formal schooling. As a business owner, you are constantly being challenged. One of the best ways to handle these situations is to share the experience with others and teach them some of valuable lessons you’ve learned. Not only will it aid others in their education, but you will learn to shine in the face of adversity.

As a seminar presenter, I’ve learned that every painful experience in my life has become an opportunity to grow, to learn, and to impart that information and lesson to others. And while doing so might prevent them from experiencing the same pain that I did, the reality is there will be plenty of other lessons they will learn “the hard way.” They are simply unavoidable. As Mark Twain once said, “A man who carries a cat around by the tail, he will quickly learn a lesson he can learn in no other way.”

More than any other quality, people seek encouragement when they are getting started. You don’t always have to share their enthusiasm, or even their confidence that they will succeed, but if you encourage others to pursue their dreams, it will get them through many the setbacks and adversities that they suffer and both of you will be surprised at just how resilient and resourceful a person can be when they have an encourager.

Many people don’t have anyone to encourage them. I’m challenging you to become a beacon of encouragement to others and shine your support where it will do the most good.
