KIUNGA: Dear investor, appreciate what you have made

There is nothing worse than a successful business person who is chronically angry, insecure, always complaining and unhappy. If you asked most people why they ventured into business they will give you answers such as to be financially free and secure, to be own boss, to make money…simply to have good life. Yet what you see nearly every day is different. We often see the image of business people who are insecure, always stressed up, always on the run and complaining about everything from bad economy, cartels, employees, high cost of living to lack of time. There is really no excuse why someone with a stable business, a modest income and opportunity to make more money should not be happy. The miseries that plague most of us in business result from an extremely unbalanced life, one with too much expectation and not enough appreciation for what is there or what we have. There is no point of having so much wealth and success yet living a miserable life of want and fear. The sure way of living a fulfilling life is to choose what to focus on. In the market there are so many opportunities. Most entrepreneurs fail to achieve the full benefits because they try to grab every opportunity. This leads to stress and restless life. Others forget what they have and focus on what others have and strive to be better or like them. Rather than focusing on what you don’t have and begrudging those who are better off than you in the market, acknowledge and appreciate the fact that at least you have a business and far much ahead of others. Remember much of what you ought to be grateful for has nothing to do with money. It could be your health, family, friends, opportunities and sound mind. Do not try to focus on what you cannot control. Do the best you can in every situation, knowing that you can influence the outcome of many aspects of your life but you usually cannot control them. Do not be too much emotionally attached to your business or other material things. If you do, anything that shakes or threatens you business and money will send you tumbling emotionally. Even if your business is going through challenges, always know it is not, and it ought not to be a matter of life and death. Businesses fail but entrepreneurs don’t fail. One of the greatest assets you have is your mind. Don’t lose it.
