As an entrepreneur, the ability to cope and rapidly adapt to changing situations is a necessary skill. There are several ways in which to do this that will help you not only face adversity, but thrive in its presence. These strategies can help you build resilience and an attitude to help you weather whatever comes your way!

Here are some of the methods I’ve employed:

  • Look ahead. A positive vision for the future can help you wade through an issue that is plaguing you at this moment.
  • Strengthen and cultivate relationships with other entrepreneurs and like-minded business owners.
  • Listen to your inner voice and create a positive, constructive dialogue with it. Turn off self defeating thoughts.
  • Focus your concentration on those items that you can control and try not to waste valuable time worrying about those items over which you have no control.
  • Know thyself! Develop relaxation rituals and a spiritual well from which you can draw when you’re in the midst of a crisis. A mini timeout can provide the breather that you need to jump back in with both feet.
