ASK this specific Question.
Is this thought/feeling really helping me, move towards my goal?
The answer is obviously ‘No”
Your goal is to run your business that YOU are passionate about in a “feel good” way and to make a profit.
You need to be concerned about why you are feeling depressed and take action to address this feeling.
Now proceed to step-3
ASK this specific Question.
Why you are feeling depressed?
Write down three reasons why you are feeling depressed? I personally recommend writing it down, as it feels like clearing the CLUTTER out of your mind and bringing CLARITY in identifying the problem.
The answer could be unpaid invoice, Dissatisfied customer or/and lack of clients.
You have now transformed the irrational depressed feeling associated with the thought “I am depressed… how to run my business” to a logical question “why you are feeling depressed?” with a clear answer.
Address the most pressing reason first. Now proceed to Step-4
Let us say your most pressing reason is “Unpaid Invoice”
ASK this specific question
What is the one ACTION step I can take today to get the invoice paid?
The answer could be send an email OR call the client and follow up.
Now make a choice to LET GO of the need to keep attachment to the OUTCOME of your action and ALLOW yourself to place your TRUST in the Higher Power OR Infinite Intelligence OR God to achieve this task of getting your Invoice paid at perfect time/space and sequence. Did you realize that you have transformed your passive depressed feeling to active action oriented thought towards your goal?
If your Invoice is paid, congratulations and proceed to address each and every reason for feeling depressed that you identified in Step-3. Say, your Invoice is not paid.
ASK this specific question
Who else that I know that can help me?
The answer could be another business owner OR your accountant.
Now seek and trust in Divine guidance as explained in Step-4. When you do this, you will have solid clarity and positive, guilt free way of taking the next step. You will be completely motivated to pick up the phone/send an email to ask for payment/seek clarifications. You will also experience a telepathic connection with the creditor/business owner/Accountant in a feel good/collaborative way to facilitate the payment transaction.
