How do entrepreneurs and small business owners keep themselves motivated? Both face significant obstacles on their path to building a successful business. Efforts to overcome them are draining both physically and mentally. So how do you find and sustain the motivation to keep going?
1. BUILD A FIRE THAT LASTS –
Look deep within and find/re-discover your purpose. We all came here with a purpose — find it for it
is the fuel that sustains your fire even in the face of the difficulties you are bound to find.
2. MAKE YOUR BUSINESS PURPOSEFUL
Then find the purpose, mission or quest of your business. Make sure that it is in harmony with your
personal purpose, mission or quest. The result will be that a step forward personally or in the
business will fuel increased motivation both personally and professionally.
3. CREATE A PLAN
Put what is in your heart and mind on paper. Commitment in writing produces clarity of thinking and
a document that will provide you with a constant reminder of your purpose, mission or quest. One that
when re-read will re-ignite or re-energize the motivation from within.
Motivation comes from within–find what is within, keep it ever present in your heart and mind and you will be
motivated each and everyday.
Live your life with purpose, live it with passion, live your Quest
