Here are some ideas and tips for keeping the fire burning for your business. It is a tragedy to see that initial light and optimism fizzle out when entrepreneurs have their first taste of failure. When entrepreneurs start feeling unenthusiastic and depressed about their business prospects, that's when businesses start to go south.
Your business should be your baby
There will be days when you will want to throw in the towel and walk away from your business - there's no harm in doing that to let off some steam, but make sure you always come back to look at what's bugging you with fresh eyes and new ideas.
Treat the business like your child - you don't just walk away when the going gets tough - your business depends on you to be there and to take care of it until it has grown enough to run and survive without you.
Be invested in your business and treat every success and failure you experience there as a milestone that you have overcome and conquered. Learn from your mistakes and plan well for your business's future. Know when to step back for a breather and when to go in and just face the problems head-on.
