The Other Source of Depression

I have always been entrepreneurial. On two separate occasions as a kid I had vegetable gardens. On each, my grandmother, and later her daughter (my mother), gave away almost all my produce and thus succeeded in liquidating my intended businesses. I guess my mother got it from her mother – my grandmother gave it to her daughter.

Among the other things I aspired to be was Jean Claude Van Damme. I didn’t want to be Chuck Norris because he had bushy chest hair. I am 30 today, with medium chest hair. It is even turning white.

How my story should be is: he grew up poor, went to university; he then ventured into business, struggled for a bit of time and then became very successful. “He

14 Stoicism Quotes that Help Heal Anxiety

This is an extract from my latest and fourth book, The Anxious Entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurship is a nerve wracking business. Entrepreneurs are always anxious about multiple things. They have goals and therefore expectations, but it is known that things cannot go according to one’s wishes, plans, desires, needs or desperation all the time.

Expectations are rarely met and subconsciously, when they aren’t, we are shaken. It is an opportune window for anxiety or even depression to set in, depending on the severity or extent of the misfortune.

10 Quotes to Help You Deal with Worry and Anxiety

This is an extract from my latest and fourth book, The Anxious Entrepreneur.

The following are some of my favourite quotes which, I believe, more or less speak to that anxiety defeats creativity and also that creativity can defeat anxiety.

 “Worrying does not take away tomorrow’s troubles. It takes away today’s peace” -Randy Armstrong.

To have peace today, you have to do the things that have meaning to you and help you to fulfil a part of you.

If your passion is to sing, but you work at a call centre, sing in the morning or after work – everyday or any number of days in the week.

It was at about 3:35 pm. I felt I was about to faint or have a panic attack. The day was not going well. Over and above, I was overly tired.

It had been weeks since I had any ‘win’. Therefore I needed to hustle people on the phone even if it was 4:00 pm. I was desperate. For goodness’ sake, that time is around knock off time. A business pitch is the last thing they would want to hear.

An earlier rejection email had heightened the panic. All these triggered my mind to think I have no hope: immediately, I time travelled to the past and the future. I saw no advantage of what my past has brought to today and I saw no light in my future.

Anxiety invades our productivity and therefore our goals. All it takes is to not see progress in a day, then a week or a month. The next thing you know, you are standing at the peak of the highest anxiety hill, depressingly recalling your record of failures and doubting your future.

This book goes through what to do to counter such episodes – and below are things you can do now:
