Building businesses from scratch while still trying to provide for your family and keeping your household in order isn’t a walk in the park. It’s hard. But what’s harder is when the same people you look up to see you as incompetent and your dreams impractical.
Should you quit? No! Here’s what you can do instead.
Prove people wrong through hard work.
People doubt you when they think you are not doing anything to move your businesses forward. Instead of focusing on your negative emotions, prove people wrong by doubling on your efforts and hard work that will enable your business to grow at a faster rate.
Prove people wrong by producing results.
People doubt you when you don’t produce results. Don’t give them any reason to by developing a plan that will help you produce results at a faster rate. Focus on action steps that will give you small but quick wins that will enable you to build the momentum that you need to start producing results.
Focus your time, efforts, and emotions on your businesses.
Let’s face it. When your family starts to doubt you, it gives you mix negative emotions that could lead you to lose your cool and focus. Instead of focusing on those negative emotions, focus your time, efforts and emotions on building your businesses and producing results. Never let those negative emotions to grow inside you so you can focus on what matters most—building a successful business.
Manage your time accordingly.
When you do everything by yourself while building your businesses, chances are high that you’ll get burned out. This will lead to poor focus and performance on your building your businesses. Instead of removing things that are also important to you and your family, manage your time accordingly. Prioritize the things that you need to do in building your businesses, and then the things that you need to do to make a living, and then the things that you need to do to keep your household organized. It is all about time management.
When people doubt you as an entrepreneur and your businesses, it means they see things that you can do to improve or they simply can’t understand the journey you are in. Understand them, show them what you are made of, and start producing results that will enable you to grow your businesses.
