When starting an online business, having motivation is very important. This is what will keep you pushing in the right direction when you feel like there is nothing left in you. You are going to have days you want to simply give up because you don’t see the results you expected to see. However, I’m here to tell you I have been there and you shouldn’t ever give up. The difference between you and those who conquer their mission is they stay â€œmotivatedâ€ to achieve what they set out to do. In the end, successful people are NOT smarter than you nor do they have a special talent, they simply have the motivation to go places where you refuse to. This can be physically or emotionally, but the end result is simple…
They achieve their dream while you’re left wondering why you haven’t been able to achieve the same thing â€“ YOUR DREAM.
I recently had a question from a visitor who asked me why it is taking so long for them to achieve what they wanted to. I asked them a few questions and figured out that the main underlying problem is they simply want to give up. They don’t have the motivation to continue. They try something and when it doesn’t work out, they don’t want to continue. They don’t have the motivation to try different things that would make sure they find the solution that gets them closer to where they want to go.
I want to discuss some ways to keep your motivation abundant and why it’s important you stay motivation in your business. In short, this is the difference between success and failure!
Motivation = Success
Here is something I’m sure all of you have heard â€“ Motivation Equals Success.
The reason, I believe, is because it’s your motivation that keeps pushing you when you feel like you can’t continue. However, what builds motivation? I’d like to go over a few things you can do to make sure you stay motivated. These are NOT things that are hard to implement, but are the foundation of your business. If you can think about these before implementing them, then you’ll have a better chance of staying motivated in the long run.
Let’s look at the following:
Invest in a business you are passion about and where monetary value doesn’t matter. If you start a business simply for the money, then you’re going to have a problem staying focused. I understand a financial reward is very important, however, that should NOT be your #1 concern. Why? Simple…
To make money through your business is a lengthy process and you won’t see a return on your efforts right away. Starting because it’s your passion will allow you to push forward even when you are NOT rewarded in the beginning.
Take Your Time â€“
The good news is when you’re NOT in it for the money, you’ll take time and spread out your growth. You’ll put effort and enjoy the work you put in, which is very important to ensure you do a quality work. However, I’ve also found that taking your time doesn’t stress you out as much as rushing through a job. I usually get de-motivated when I have a lot of work I need to finish off, but when I take a step back, I’m able to stay focused and motivated.
The same applies to NOT giving yourself time to relax. When you constantly work, you burn yourself out and this leads to you feeling de-motivated, tired, and NOT focused on your end goal.
I know many of you are wondering why this is on the list and the answer is simple. Whenever I exercise, it gives me a great outlook on life and what I’m trying to achieve. It’s been proven exercise will release natural pain killers into your blood known as endorphins. These help lighten your mood and help with focus. I believe this is a great way to stay happy about your work and business. I’m not saying to spend hours in the gym, but something like I’ve listed below will help:
- 20-30 minutes per day
- 3-4 times per week
- Change things up so you don’t get bored
