Feast or Famine?

“I have too few opportunities,” laments the entrepreneur.

“No. You just lack skills,” life explains to him or her.

The founder doesn’t give up: “You don’t understand! The void surrounds me!” Life, patiently: “You’re looking in the wrong direction.”

Who’s right? It’s easy to check. Let another entrepreneur share what he sees in the same context — oasis or sand dune.

Moreover, have you noticed how your perception of the situation differs in moments of inspiration and gloom? Like sky and earth, right?

Every pro smiles, recalling their first steps: “Like a blind kitten, I didn’t see options and created problems myself.”

If your business or career is stuck, try:

  1. Leveling your spirits, without melancholy or ecstasy.
  2. Envision an ideal future where everything somehow falls into place.
  3. Learning from the experiences of those who’ve been there, done that.
  4. Calling in a specialist who uses not just one, but many lenses.
  5. Flipping the situation: “Oh, emptiness? Then I’m free to do anything!”

Sincerely yours,

-Alexander
