Never give up in the midst of trouble

January 4, 2011

When a startup company is distressed, entrepreneur has hard time to figure out what to do. When everyone gives rosy prospects on your business and wants to chip in, you think sky is the limit.

Though, when your business turns into a sinking ship: getting lots of no’s for your sales call, losing key employees, and failing to raise additional capital to sustain your operation, you feel like giving up and getting out of headache. Someone may call this situation “death valley” or “chasm.” Though, 99% of even successful companies had gone through similar level of stress. The reason they still exist is because they’ve never given up.

Let’s say…when you walk into huge forest, you may wonder what the other side of forest is like. At the end of trip, there could be a beautiful scenery like serene white sand shoreline or flowery valley. However, you don’t know it yet. You may feel extremely tired if your journey takes longer than expected. Also, it adds extra stress if your map doesn’t look right. As long as you have a clear goal to pass through forest to the end, you just have to keep walking to the direction your gut feeling tells you that would bring you to the end-point fast. In the midst of long trip, you hardly imagine how beautiful forest is. When you get to your destination, you can now look back and proudly tell how worthy your trip was.

If you feel like you’re in the middle of trouble and don’t know which direction to go, never give up and get wise navigator if you can who knows the best way.
