Worry is something that gets stuck in our head. We don’t take action on it because we are too busy thinking about what could happen.
When we start to worry, the first thing that happens is we get us off track from our goals. We stop doing what we know we should be doing in order to worry more. Worry becomes a stop sign in our life rather than a speed bump. Worries should cause us to pay attention, but it does not mean we should stop.Worry is a speed bump not a stop sign. Click To Tweet
When we stop doing what we should be doing our worries build up. As Christian business owners, the best way to get past worries is to take action. Take action on training employees better. Take action on marketing our business better. Take action on better customer service.
Each worry has a seed that has grown into one of your business systems. Look at your business as a whole system and see where you can make one little improvement. Make sure you have your systems in place and you have a good understanding of how your business functions.
When we focus on improving a single part of our business two things happen. One, we accomplish something which makes us feel better. Two, we get our mind off our worry and onto something productive.
Don’t spend time worrying about your business if you are not taking time to correct the issue. Take action to correct what needs to be corrected, grow what needs to be grown, and train what needs to be trained. Then you will get past what you are worrying about and your business will start to flourish once again.
Matthew 6:25-27 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?”
