Small Business May Cause You To Ask - Psychologist Anyone?

Small Business May Cause You To Ask - Psychologist Anyone?
I receive regular updates from a fabulous blog www.dailygood.org. I enjoyed one recently about Michael Perhama a 16 year old who is the youngest person to have sailed across the Atlantic alone. He would be alone at sea for over four months and his only contact with family would be through satellite link-ups. Michael said: "I'm a little bit nervous but otherwise really, really excited. I thought how similar it sounds to the journey we face as entrepreneurs. When we set off to blaze our own trail. How exciting it is as we start out on this journey.
The article went onto say “however you don't look forward to the fact you are alone for about four months" and that “Psychologists have helped prepare him mentally for the challenges ahead” and I started to wonder where our psychologists are?....surely our journey is no less terrifying, it can feel very isolating at times and is a massive journey of self discovery.  With tough times ahead we need to ask ourselves: What can we do to ensure we are mentally prepared for the challenges ahead? Who are our support networks? perhaps they are mentors, coaches, loved ones or spiritual guides. Surround yourself with what you need to push yourself through the challenges that are a part of any great journey.
