I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Freelancing is not easy.

I’m sure that many of you know this too. The life of freelancing involves a lot of uncertainty, several ups and downs, and lots of hard work.

It can cause you to feel a wide range of emotions and those emotions can greatly help or hurt your business.

I’m sure you’ve read a lot of advice about freelancing, but this piece of advice that IttyBiz shares might change your outlook on freelancing forever.

“This quote is from The Obstacle is the Way: The Timeless Art of Turning Trials Into Triumph, by Ryan Holiday.

The author has just spent some time talking about how astronauts prepare for going into space. If an astronaut doesn’t have total control of his emotions, if he gets spooked and panics, if he is at a loss for what to do, he dies and takes everybody else down with him.

Jack, my 9-year-old, puts it best. “NASA spends a lot of time and money teaching people to calm the beep down.””
