Reasons why enterpreneurs burnout  

Becoming an entrepreneur and creating your own business is one of the more challenging and frightening adventures on which someone could embark. To be successful, you have to stay focused, make wise investments and truly believe in yourself and your product. It’s hard to deny that starting your own business requires a significant amount of time, energy and intense dedication to hitting your goals. As an entrepreneur, you are going to be more susceptible to burnout than most other professionals, which is due largely in part to how many hours entrepreneurs find themselves actually wanting to work, and how hard they push themselves to succeed.

  1. Not Taking a Break  :              We are in a culture that emphasizes constant work, and it makes us feel like we do not have the ability to take breaks. When you think about the bigger picture, though, giving yourself a few days to decompress and recharge will leave you much better off. common cause of burnout is not taking time off from work or your routine when you know you need it. When you have reached that point or find yourself getting close, take a break.
  2. Not Taking Exercise:  Exercising is one of the best ways to rebuild energy and reinvigorate your mind. Releasing endorphins and focusing on your body, even if it is just for an hour, can play a drastic role.
  3. Doing all by yourself:  Your business got to where it’s at because you were behind the wheel, and it’s hard to find someone that will treat it the way you do. That doesn’t necessarily mean you have to actually do everything, though. Giving  some of the responsibilities to people who know what they’re doing in those roles can save your sanity. At the end of the day, you have the same number of hours as everyone else around you. By surrounding yourself with knowledgeable people  you can increase how many hours are being put into your business from day  to  day. You can quit stressing yourself out with the more mundane tasks and put people in place to handle them while you focus on the higher level, executive tasks.
  4. Staying too focus:   It is great to be in line and always focused especially   when you’re building your business. However, staying in the zone too long can cause you to lose focus on other areas of your life. Tunnel vision is a real problem for many entrepreneurs, and is one of the biggest reasons for them to get burned out. You can only stay in the zone for so long before you start feeling the effects, and exhaustion begins to take over your mind and your body. It’s critical that you figure out a balance between your work life and your personal life, to avoid getting caught up in the zone.
  5. Not Taking time to meditate: There are countless meditation techniques, and different ones work for everyone. Find ways of meditating that work for you and do not hesitate to use those techniques when you are feeling burnt out. Taking 5-10 minutes to focus on your breathing and relax can leave you feeling much better.
  6. Setting Unrealistic Goals:  If you are hoping to build  a successful and profitable business, Goals are a requirement However,  goals that can not be achieved or are unrealistic can do more harm than good. Having unrealistic expectations for yourself or your employees can be a major problem for many entrepreneurs, and will only set you up to constantly feel like either you’re failing, or they’re failing you, leading to even bigger issues down the road. No business that has become successful ever became successful overnight. However, business owners that did try to become an overnight success have gone through fatigue, stayed discouraged, and exhausted themselves out. To avoid this, make sure that you have set realistic expectations for you and the people around you, and that you’re focusing on both short-term goals and long-term goals.
  7. Failing to maintain the boundaries:  Always Note that Boundaries don’t just exist in your personal life. The same way that you have certain things that you won’t accept from the people in your personal life, you need to set realistic boundaries for what you will and won’t accept in your business. When you decide that you are no longer working, you need to completely shut off and avoid work. This means not letting your clients get in touch with you, and not giving your employees any of your time. Likewise, when you’re turned on, you need to be completely available to your employees and your clients and customers. This will help them figure out that when you’re not at work you’re unavailable, but when you are at work they have your full attention. Taking the time to recharge when you’re not at work is critical to your performance while you are at work, so  make sure you have boundaries set for everyone you’re involved with. Setting boundaries in your business will help you to arrange both our personal life and your business life, always have time for every thing like they saying goes “their is time for every thing”.
  8.  Unexpected turns :  Some entrepreneurs love the surprises that inevitably come with running a business, but for others, there’s a hard limit to how much uncertainty they can take. Having to see a fifth, sixth, and seventh iteration of design can be tiresome.
  9. Every thing Seem Irritating: 

Your trusted assistant seems to have become incompetent overnight. Clients you enjoyed working with are a burden, and no one seems to be able to do anything right. If this sounds familiar, chances are slim that everyone in your professional circle decided collectively to drop the ball. The more likely explanation is that you’ve simply had enough for a while, and need to take some time out for self- care.

Entrepreneurial burnout is a real phenomenon, and one that’s hard to avoid—unless you know the major root causes that lead to it. Burnout sets in when an entrepreneur is overstressed, disinterested in their work, and unmotivated to continue; depending on its severity, it could compromise the startup’s potential success, or lead to your departure.
