How do you stay so motivated?
You see, we are often so consumed by motivating our teams, employees, business partners and customers, that we sometimes forget something extremely important -- our own motivation.
1. Build a business around your passion.
When you do something you truly love it’s not hard to find the motivation needed to succeed. If you are involved in an industry that bores you it will be hard to dig down and find that motivation when you need it because you aren’t truly passionate about what you are doing.
2. Always have long-term and short-term goals.
I’m a big fan of goals, both short-term and long-term -- they give you something to work towards, and including short-term goals ensures that you are able to taste victory on a regular basis, providing further motivation to push hard towards achieving the long-term goals.
3. Be extremely optimistic.
When you are constantly optimistic you focus on just the positives, which helps you stay motivated and focused on reaching your goals. The minute you start to bring negative thoughts into your mind is the moment your forward momentum will come to a screeching halt.
4. Commit to the end goal.
Success often comes to those who take big risks, and big risks can result in epic failures. There are very few one-hit wonders, as most successful entrepreneurs have experienced failure at one point.
5. Surround yourself with like-minded people.
The company you surround yourself with has a direct influence on how you behave, both in your personal life and in the workplace.
6. Establish a personal reward system.
It’s always nice to be rewarded for your hard work, and we can all benefit greatly by implementing a personal rewards program. It doesn’t have to be lavish, either, as sometimes simple rewards can go a long way to push us harder.
