Motivation One Way Or Another



Alliance Advisors, Inc.

What is​ your driving force? What keeps you going everyday? is​ it​ your job, your family, or​ your livelihood? When I write about motivation I am writing about what the​ driving force is​ behind keeping you moving in​ the​ direction you need to​ go each day. This applies to​ everyone no matter if​ you are self-employed, or​ a​ salesman, a​ home-based worker, a​ wife, author, or​ husband; motivation is​ required to​ keep us in​ the​ frame of​ mind we need to​ be in​ order to​ be successful at​ what we are trying to​ achieve.

What do you do to​ keep yourself motivated? Everyone has highs and​ lows in​ their business and​ life, so we all find ways to​ motivate ourselves. Listed here are some of​ the​ ways I motivate myself:

Prayer. as​ a​ Christian this is​ the​ very motivating to​ me. I know God is​ listening it​ just depends on His timeframe when He answers. I patiently wait for​ those answers.

Daily Goals. Every morning I write down what I need to​ accomplish for​ the​ day. at​ the​ end of​ the​ day it​ is​ a​ pleasant feeling to​ see all the​ lines I have drawn to​ cross off the​ items listed I have accomplished.

Read. I normally turn to​ self-help manuals for​ guidance in​ positive direction. as​ a​ self-employed person, I frequently read online newsletters, buy books, read articles; researching any media I can that I think will help me in​ accomplishing the​ goals I set for​ myself.

Reach out to​ a​ friend. if​ all else fails, call a​ friend to​ be a​ sounding board. When sharing with others, it​ builds awareness and​ enables you to​ realize you are not the​ only person trying to​ accomplish something. a​ large majority of​ the​ time the​ person you contacted needs support and​ motivation also.

At one point in​ your life or​ another, we all have felt our efforts are not worth the​ outcome we have reaped so far. if​ you will remember why you are trying to​ accomplish what you are doing, then some of​ your motivation may come back. Perhaps it​ is​ for​ your family, your spouse, or​ yourself, whatever the​ reason you were motivated to​ do something, now go and​ accomplish it! the​ 80/20 rule applies here also; 80% know what to​ do and​ 20% do it. Do not lose the​ faith. Nothing is​ holding you back but self-doubt or​ weariness and​ lack of​ motivation! Be part of​ the​ 20% and​ do it! as​ Nike says, “Just Do It”!
