Being an entrepreneur can be challenging. There are perks and rewards to being your own boss, but it’s not always a walk in the park. Sometimes it can be just plain hard.

However, it’s important to remember that we’re in control of our businesses, and the reason it starts to feel hard is because we’re focusing too much on the little things.

That said, in today’s episode I talk about five things that instantly get me excited about my business so that you can feel amazed by what you’re doing as well. This is a way to remember that even though it’s hard, we can still feel great about what we’re doing and the path we’re on.

“It is such an empowering thought to realize that that responsibility means that you also have the power to make changes. This makes you realize that anything you want to do in your life starts with you.”

In this episode Avani talks about:

  • What being “at cause” is and how you can use it to reshape your life.
  • Reminding yourself of the things that make you love your job.
  • The importance of gratitude in your life’s direction.

1. Remember that you are at cause

Being at cause is greater than being in effect. When you are at cause, you are the reason your life is the way it is. You have the control to make your life better.

2. Ask yourself what you’re proud of

List out the things that you’re proud of. This is important because it lets you see how far you’ve come, and celebrate that moment.

3. Make a bliss list

Make a list of 10 things that your business has allowed you to do in the last year that you wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise. Let yourself appreciate where this job has taken you.

4. Do something on your bliss list

Look at the 10 items on your bliss list and pick one to do again or to start with. It will help remind you of how good you’ve got it, and it will remind you of your job’s advantages.

5. Practice gratitude

Once you look at the world from a place of gratitude, you can do so many things in any situation. You’ll be grateful for what you have, and being grateful makes you feel even happier about your life.
