Contributed by Dhiren Harchandani (EO UAE), a Transformational Architect who helps entrepreneurs crush roadblocks to get more of what they want, by Mastering their Inner Game. We asked Dhiren how entrepreneurs can master their Inner Game. Here’s what he shared:
Have you ever made business decisions that adversely affected your relationships and health? Do you know how it feels to have your energy completely drained while your competitors grow past you? If you’re an entrepreneur, these scenarios are all too familiar.
A few years ago, I experienced a colossal burnout.
I know how it feels to be physically present with those you love but emotionally absent. And I know what it feels like to be at the end of my rope, feeling like an imposter in my own body.
But all that dramatically changed when I discovered the Inner Game.
There are many lies we tell ourselves as entrepreneurs. You think if you could work harder or play the game smarter, you will have better business success. While that may be true in the short term, it’s far from sustainable.
I liken it to tuning different parts of a race car for better performance without paying attention to the engine. It doesn’t make sense, but the reality is that is exactly what we do—we hire better staff, automate certain processes, and the list goes on.
Sadly, entrepreneurs often forget to work on themselves and the core that drives their beliefs.
“The business behind an entrepreneurs’ business is their Inner Game.”
Ever since I discovered the Inner Game and started going deeper in embedding it in my life and business, I’ve performed at a level I’ve never been able to access in the past.
