You know the biggest misperception tech founders have?
That success requires suffering.
There’s so much to do, so many things to worry about — securing funding, making payroll, market conditions, staffing problems. They just assume that they HAVE to be stressed.
It takes a terrible toll on their mental wellbeing, physical health and relationships.
But they put up with it. Why?
As one client said to me, “That’s just the price of success, isn’t it?
After all, every successful entrepreneur talks about how hard they worked, the sacrifices they made and the extremes they went to in building their company.
So founders work 24/7, unable to switch off and feeling like everything rests on their shoulders.
Suffer enough, they’ll deserve success too, right?
Here’s a hard truth I hope you pay attention to: You can never be at your best when you’re suffering. Just because you’re chronically stressed and making sacrifices doesn’t mean you’re getting the right things done.
That’s why my Evolving Faster program is designed the way it is… with a laser focus on mastering yourself so you can be a better leader.
It pinpoints exactly what you need to do to get out of survival mode and shift effortlessly into high gear in less than 8 weeks. I coach founders in high-growth mode and the first thing I do is have them identify all the “stealth triggers” that are sucking their energy and creating unnecessary and pointless stress…
Always in reactive mode, taking two steps forward, one step back.
No wonder you feel like you’re not getting anywhere.
You’d be much better off developing greater self awareness and practicing how to influence others in scenarios that simulate actual stress-inducing situations.
Because remember this…
It’s something many founders don’t realize until years into their career, if ever.
You can’t have a happy ending to an unhappy journey.
If you’re ready to let go of the “entrepreneurship is suffering” myth, then take a look at Evolving Faster and get the simple but powerful roadmap to level up your leadership…
I’m rooting for you…
