These are the days that test our patience. These are the days that push us to our limits. As business owners, it is an even crazier world, challenging us at every turn. So when the going gets tough, how do you pump yourself up? How do you motivate yourself to push through and achieve your goals? As a continuation of the blog we began earlier this month, we are helping to guide you along the path of more great ways to make sure you are moving forward, step by step. All you need is a little motivation.
6. Set rewards.
We are naturally wired to react to incentives, so be prepared to reward yourself for accomplishing a goal or maintaining a habit. Just like in business, you should recognize and reward small victories along the way to long-term, broader goals.
7. Engage friends.
Sometimes the best motivation comes from peer pressure. Engage your friends and colleagues to help motivate you both toward individual and shared goals. Consider mobile apps that make the engagement fun, such as Make Me, ChallengedApp, KlashApp or simply text your challenge to your partner.
8. Indulge in inspirational activities.
Sometimes, you just need to look outside your circle for motivation. When this happens, re-match a movie that you found inspiring. During your lunch break, watch a TED talk. Or listen to an inspirational podcast during your commute, on your daily walk or while you are enjoying your personal time alone.
9. Stay positive.
There is no one-size-fits all answer to what makes people happy, with definitions, theories and opinions abound. For me, I have a simple mantra that I turn to when I need a boost. It is simply, “Choose happy.” By saying that phrase and mustering up an authentic smile, I find my mood and motivation is elevated exponentially.
Finally, never underestimate the value of a good night sleep for personal motivation. After years of experience and self experimenting, I have found that, with few exceptions, no unfinished task or missed goal is worth the misery that comes with losing sleep over it. More important, with a fresh night of rest, these tasks and goals become infinitely easier to finish the following day.
What other ways do you stay motivated as an entrepreneur? Each person is unique, so we want to hear what works best for you.
