How do you see a challenge?
I've just caught a snippet of a programme on TV discussing challenges in small business. Specifically, how one's mentality in response to a challenge affects the outcomes. This got me to thinking about how I perceive challenges as they pop up, how I respond, and how this response influences the end result!
Mindset in times of challenge.
Overall I feel pretty well resourced to respond in a healthy, positive way to challenges as they pop up and I know for sure that having a great business partner helps with that. I must admit that's not 100% of the time and that I sometimes have to work hard to remain positive in the face of challenges. However knowing that challenges are always going to be part of the small business journey, I think it's important to maintain a positive mindset in responding to challenge.
What about you?
How do you see challenges in your business?
What do you define as a challenge (as opposed to a problem, a glitch, an opportunity…)
How does your perception influence your response, the outcomes for your business and for you personally in terms of stress or lack of?
Given that challenge, however you see them, will always be a part of small business, could you choose to change your perspective to set yourself up for more success?
