Depressed in Business? How to Get Re-Excited!

Updated: Dec 27, 2020

When you’re experiencing depression because of challenges in your business, you have to replace your thoughts with new, more positive thoughts.

For me, when I think about the calling God has over my life, I get a jolt of excitement. When I have a great idea, joy floods my body. When I get an epiphany, and God clearly speaks a vision into my life, I start thinking about the opportunities!

I’ll prove this to you. Have you ever imagined winning the lottery? The mind starts going into this fantasy world of what we would do with all that money! And then 5 minutes later, you snap out of it and wonder what the heck happened?

For those 5 minutes, you had no problems. Life was amazing in fantasy land, right?

In the same way, we can THINK our way out of depression by shifting our perspective and changing the way we think.

Of course, we have to think positive thoughts about our potential in business, and avoid negative thoughts!

If we keep thinking about the money people owe us, the clients that canceled, the employees that we had to let go, and the rent we can’t pay, then we keep digging ourselves into a hole.

But God wants to give us a different perspective. God wants us to focus on the business He created us to start!

The Bible says:

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." (Philippians 4:8 NIV)

God’s perspective for business is the key to unlocking His calling, His direction, and His plan for the business. Focusing on uncovering God’s perspective will produce the mindset needed to discover the businesses God needs in the world.
