“You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want,” by Zig Ziglar.
When facing struggles in my business, it helps to remember why I got into business in the first place; to help others. When setbacks occur (especially financial) I ask myself if I am helping enough people. Am I properly motivating and empowering my employees? Am I giving great customer service? How can I do better? Can I donate some time/resources to worthy causes? The struggles seem to work themselves out when I concentrate on others.
It’s difficult to not think “how will this benefit me,” but it’s worth it.
