Today Ebenezer Frimpong shares with us how to overcome stress and achieve success in the e-commerce industry.
How do you push through Anxiety?
Anxiety is actually something I’m battling with right now and what I’ve found to work for me and help me cope with it, is simply writing out all my thoughts and problems either in my phone notes or in a notebook. I then go back through each thought or problem and try to work out solutions to each one individually. In my mind, this scales down my problems and thoughts to the point where they’re manageable and no longer feel so big and as I work on the solutions to each problem, I celebrate them as wins.
What are your main tips to achieving success in any aspect of life, such as business and relationships?
Most people may not realize this but despite what they may think, no one succeeds alone. The first tip to achieve success is to build up a solid support system of people you can trust who have your best interest at heart and will be there for you during your lows and will celebrate your highs. Success comes with a mental health cost that requires the love and support of the people closest to you.
The second tip to success is patience, understanding, and forgiveness. You make mistakes, you’re human. The people in your business and personal life will also make mistakes, extend to them the same patience, understanding, and forgiveness you would extend to yourself instead of getting angry or being resentful.
One of my favourite quotes that I think about often is from an anonymous source and it says “Resentment is like swallowing poison and expecting the other person to die”
How do you avoid burnout?
Until 2019, I was a one-man team and thought I could do everything on my own, and that’s the fastest way to being miserable and being burnt out. To avoid burnout, I took a couple of action and I believe every entrepreneur and business owner out there should do this.
- Learn to delegate. Build a team using virtual assistants because it’s cost-effective and learn to trust them to handle the tasks you gave them.
- Get rid of the “I can grind 24/7” mentality because you can’t. Take time off to just relax, watch NetFlix, play video games, go outside, pick up a hobby, etc
How will you continue to grow and succeed?
I’m always willing to learn something new, whether it’s a new skill or learning more about a topic that interests me..I’m down for it. I think that’s the best way for me to continue to grow as a person.
What keeps you motivated?
Before Lil Uzi Vert was a chart-topping artist pushing 300K album sales in first week sales, he was a kid in Philly who was so determined to make it in the music industry that he went and got face tattoos. A drastic measure that he knew would make him unemployable. That face tattoo immediately erased any backup plans he could’ve had.
That’s what keeps me motivated. I’m a college dropout with no degree or certifications. I have absolutely no other backup plan to go back to if I fail. My only option is to always keep moving forward.
