Ships are built based around air-tight compartments so if the ship runs into an iceberg or a rock and a hole in the hull results, they can seal off that airtight compartment and the ship would continue to float.
To grow your business without constant worry, treat it as though it were a ship and each day is an airtight compartment.
So, some days you might have a really bad day and that’s like your airtight compartment being punctured and flooding, and you’re thinking, “This is awful. I think I’m going to quit my whole business.”
That would be like having a ship, which is built to sustain a puncture and then not sealing off the rest of the ship, even though you have the capability to do so, and letting the boat sink because you had one bad day.
Instead, realize that you can seal off whatever happens at that moment, and whatever happened that day.
And you can always keep the ship afloat because there’s always the next moment, the next day, the next compartment, which allows the whole of the ship to continue to float.
You have to allow for things to happen in a moment and continue moving forward.
Don’t let the whole ship sink, when it is built to withstand a couple of bad days in a row, a couple of bad months in a row, maybe even a couple of bad years in a row.
Understand that you as a human being are also built to be able to succeed even when bad things happen.
If you can remember that and commit to not jumping ship, not deviating from your current course and just ploughing forward, using this idea of airtight compartments, you will succeed not just in your business, but in all aspects of your life.
