Episode 15 of DIVE Studios‘ “GET REAL” series was just released, and a stand-out part was when BTOB‘s Peniel shared valuable insight regarding people’s expectations of others.
The topic was brought up by a netizen who asked for advice about the stress that comes with being a new business owner.
How do you deal with the stress of running a business? Physically, everything I’ve wanted finally came true, and now I have this constant stress that I could lose it all in any given moment if I mess up. This is literally the first time in my life I’ve cared about something enough to stress over it, and I haven’t really slept well this weekend.
I’m constantly imagining my clients telling me I’ve failed them and dropping the contract. I even had a nightmare about it last night. I was wondering how you guys would deal with this stress of running a business.

In response, Peniel shared his very simple outlook on the matter.
In his perspective, if it means he ends up being “cancelled” and has to quit being a celebrity, then so be it. What’s important to him is having a positive outlook on life.
He recommended having a change of mindset to start experiencing life differently.
This entails accepting what you’ve done and seeing how it can make you a better person.
Finally, he reiterated his words and suggested that the netizen changes their mindset.
