Starting a business is stressful, difficult work. That's why it's important to make sure you keep a positive mindset throughout the process -- if you don't, then the grind will wear you down and your business will suffer for it.

In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Kate Volman shares some tips on how you can be more positive. Her first tip is to surround yourself with good, uplifting people. As Jim Rohn once said, "We are the average of the five people we spend the most time with." So, if you spend your time with negative people, it's likely you're going to have a negative outlook. By saving your time for uplifting people who can inspire you, you give yourself a boost that can keep you moving forward when you feel like quitting.
