Emotional turmoil part deux

Last week, we were talking about handling emotional turmoil as entrepreneurs.

It was inspired by this tweet from David Cancel, founder of Drift:

The hardest thing for an entrepreneur is not what you think.

No one ever talks about it but this will make or break you.

People? Process? Product?

Nope.

It's dealing with the emotional turmoil. Managing the emotional rollercoaster is the hardest skill you must master.

I told you my number one technique for dealing with emotional turmoil, and …

Emotional turmoil part one

I saw this pinned tweet from David Cancel, founder of Drift.

He says:

The hardest thing for an entrepreneur is not what you think.

No one ever talks about it but this will make or break you.

People? Process? Product?

Nope.

It's dealing with the emotional turmoil. Managing the emotional rollercoaster is the hardest skill you must master.

How are you doing with that piece?

I have a sense, if you're part of the Simplero family, you're above average on this.

If that's true for you, you …

Who's got your money?

I got an email from Grant Cardone today with a topic that I wanted to share with you because I love it so much.

It's the question in the subject line:

Who's got your money?

If you want to make more money, well, then you gotta figure out who currently has the money that you want, and what exchange you can make with them, so they willingly hand over that money to you.

All of the money in the world currently resides in someone's hands. Some person, or group of persons, control the purse str…

The big three

Something I've started to do religiously is deciding on my big three for the day.

Each day, I decide on the top three things I need to get done today.

The most strategically important thing to get done.

The thing that's going to move me forward.

It could even be just one or two things. It doesn't have to be three.

It really helps me focus.

I can have a dozen other to-dos, and if I get to them, that's great. But my big three, they always get done.

Unless shit's really going down.

It's bee…

Consistency

We have a new saying here at Simplero HQ:

Consistency will bring us farther than inspiration ever will.

It's something we picked up from our friend Darrell.

Darrell is awesome. He's helping us grow Simplero, and he's been such a great resource ... and it doesn't hurt that he's a great guy to boot.

It's another way to say something we've been saying around here for a while: Lifestyle over diet.

I like how Darrell says it, though.

And we can't hear the message often enough.

Where do you nee…

Love as much as you can from wherever you are

There's an awesome (and funny) book called Lazy Man's Guide to Enlightenment by Thaddeus Golas.

You cannot love a title like that.

I heard about it from Gay Hendricks years ago, and it's as great today as it was then.

Its point is simple: The way to enlightenment is to love as much as you can from wherever you are.

Right now, whatever feeling you have, love it.

When your customers are yelling at you, love how you feel.

When it's pouring down and the cold wind is howling and you have to be …

Commit or get out

I've recently hired an Executive Assistant. It's a real game-changer.

Dan Martell said something that really made an impression on me:

If you don't have an assistant, you're the assistant!

Ouch!

But it's true.

I run a multi-million dollar company, and until now, I haven't had an assistant.

That's nuts!

As soon as you hit a couple of hundred grand, you need to absolutely get yourself an assistant.

There's plenty of companies out there, too, that can get you started at a decent cost, like …
