Are you lacking motivation, feeling discouraged and despondent as to whether you will or can ever be successful in life and in your business?
You need to stay motivated.
Motivation is the fuel that you need to stay on course and do what you need to do to achieve your goals; and you need it daily.
Here are a few quotes to motivate you:
“Of course motivation is not permanent. But then, neither is bathing; but it is something you should do on a regular basis.” – Zig Ziggler
“The individual who says it is not possible should move out of the way of those doing it.”
― Tricia Cunningham
“You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.” – Henry Ford
So how do you stay motivated? You must decide to stay motivated. It is a choice you make that no one else can do. Actually the best motivation is self motivation because when it comes from within, no one can take it away.
I am going to share with you a few help points on how you can keep yourself motivated. In the process you will find that you are motivating others too.
Take Action Consistently
Starting to do something new is always nerve wrecking. The only way to deal with the nerves is to feel afraid and do it anyway, not once, not twice but until you know how to do it well. Set the tempo for action and keep at it. The more you do an activity, the better you become. So keep on doing. You levels of confidence will rise to motivate you.
Have A Vision and Set Goals To Achieve It
My favourite book says “My people perish for lack of vision”. Where there is no vision, there is no reason to live. Do you know what you want. Who do you want to be. How do you want to be known. What do you want to have. Create a vision board that you look at every day that reminds you what you want to become.
In case the vision intimidates you because it is too big, break t down into bite size goals and steps that you must take every day. Give yourself a reason to wake up everyday.
Do results Driven Activities
Do not do what I call treadmill activities. You can be busy all the time but achieving nothing. Your vision and your goals will define what your results ought to be and if what you are doing is not getting you where you want to go you will exhaust yourself and kill the motivation. Focus on results driven activities.
Create a Motivation Circle
Build relationships with other like-minded individuals so that you can do things together and keep each other motivated. Meet often or talk on the phone often. Have them to rekindle your fire when you are down or to kick your butt when you are slacking. Keep each other accountable and do not buy each other’s excuses. Your motivation circle will be even more fun and exciting if it is made up of people on your team. Get together and do business growth activities together. Celebrate each others’ victories and successes.
Help Others To Succeed
People who help others to achieve their goals often find the motivation to attain their own goals too. Have an open door policy of letting people seek you out if in need of help. as you show them what to do to achieve success you become a servant leader because the best way to show people what to do is doing it yourself. There is nothing like people looking up to you to get you to stand up and work.
Constantly Reprogram Yourself
Have you ever noticed how a computer gets to ‘hang’. I am not sure what happens in the hardware but you will be in the middle of a task and the processing thingy on your screen keeps spinning and spinning until you have to end task and refresh. Our minds and bodies can get into that tail spin too and you will need occasional refreshing. How do you reprogram? Go away somewhere alone or with your mastermind group and chill. Take time to reflect, reorganize and regroup. Remember to have fun while you are at it and break the serious and monotonous business mode.
