Hypnotherapy London – There has been a dark side to everything in this world. Including opportunities that are deemed beneficial. If taken in extreme it can be a detriment to one’s well being. In today’s post you will begin to understand the most common addiction that goes unnoticed within the business world.

For the most part, addictions are detrimental to a person’s health. There are a few habits that are not considered dangerous to ones health and may be viewed as productive. There is a percentage of the population that are prone to falling into addictions, whether they are substance addictions or physical addictions is entirely up to the addict. Addictions can be brought on through different causes. Addictions become the sole reason for an addicts living.
Looking at different addictions, not every habit is dangerous. One can become addicted to learning, or addicted to working out, or even addicted to working. Anything in an overabundance can be unhealthy. Moderation is definitely the key to living a healthy life. There has been a new addiction creeping up slowly as time goes on, habitual entrepreneurship. Habitual entrepreneurs are the entrepreneurs that have multiple business ventures operating at the same time.
Let us take a look at behaviors of this particular addict. There is sleeplessness paired with obsession, always thinking about the next opportunity. When sleep is forgone for thought, thinking is very difficult to do and becomes a major task. Losing concentration in daily tasks and activities caused by lack of sleep can be cumbersome as well as exhausting. Then when ideas do not pan out as planned, and the door of opportunity closes tightly, panic and anxiety take the place of healthy emotion. If there is an opportunity that knocks and opens a plethora of doors it is the high that entrepreneurs live for. The life of a habitual entrepreneur can be likened to that of a junky. This is the new addiction; the high peaks and the lowest of valleys can and will become a daily norm for this group.
It is always a great feeling when you find a reason for living, a reason that isn’t going to harm you. What harm could there possibly be in working for yourself and striving to build an empire? At my Hypnotherapy London practice I have witnessed the definite harm that people go through if that is all life is about, forsaking everything and everyone in their life. Habitual entrepreneurs demonstrate addict like behaviors in the sense that they must follow each lead even if it is down the path to destruction. If new entrepreneurs continue uneducated in regards to this lifestyle, it may very well swallow them whole.
Habitual entrepreneurs speak similarly to traditional addicts. Exhibiting obsessive thought processes as well as a withdrawn demeanor. Being consumed in thoughts regarding business ventures to the point of obsession as well as a hyperactive drive to complete tasks necessary for business. These attributes may be a precursor to success, or they can be the beginning to personal demise. When success is attained, these behaviors may not be viewed as an addict like behaviors. Only when they become detrimental to the entrepreneur, will these behaviors be viewed as an addiction.
The entrepreneurs’ drive to bring the business to fruition becomes all encompassing. This leads every other area of their life to be at the mercy of the current venture. They become what also is known as a workaholic, becoming over worked, and disengaged from their surroundings. When a person becomes disengaged from their surroundings, it closes out opportunities to grow and nurture personal relationships. This can become hurtful to those around the entrepreneur, such as family and friends.
With any addiction, if the addict is not partaking in their choice of addiction it can cause emotions of depression and withdrawal, possibly even irritability and codependency. Regardless of what the entrepreneur is doing in an attempt to distract himself or herself, their minds always return to their business ventures. Habitual entrepreneurs can also display the physiology of addiction, such as sweating and an increase in their heart rate in periods of excitement caused by such addiction.
This form of addiction can be easily understood if the drive was solely to gain a wealth, however that is not why habitual entrepreneurs do what they do. This addiction is sought after for the high, the emotional stimulus that is caused by attaining the level of success is the main goal.
More information in regards to habitual entrepreneurship addiction is coming to light over time, this is just the beginning to truly understand the mind set solely upon success. With every genre of addiction there is always a dark side, one that can annihilate the entrepreneur. Understanding as well as admitting that there is a problem is the first step in the rehabilitation of any addiction.
