4 Simple Ways to Get and Stay Motivated

Saturday, February 11, 2023

Staying motivated is probably one of the hardest things for most people to do.

Especially if you are a new entrepreneur just dipping your toes in the water or trying out a few projects here and there.

Running a business requires dedication, motivation, and perseverance to get to the finish line if there even is one.

Sometimes finding the strategies and tactics that actually work take a lot of trial and error until you start seeing results.

This trial and error can get you down and de-motivate you because it usually feels like there are more failures then there are successes.

Here are 4 things that I do to help keep me motivated and on track to attaining my dreams.

1 Goals and purpose

The number one thing that separates successful people from unsuccessful people is goals.

What’s your big hairy audacious goal?

You should have short-term, mid-term and long-term goals to help guide your strategy and your day-to-day tactical work. If they’re the right goals, they can help lift you up when you just need a little motivation to keep going.

2 It’s a marathon, not a sprint

Most overnight successes are 10 years in the making. Don’t get down on yourself for not seeing results faster.

Focus on your goals keep working keep learning keep trying new things to get you towards that goal. Every failure is a learning opportunity to get better.

3 Exercise and downtime

You can’t work all the time.

It’s not healthy and it’s not productive either.

Yes, you have to hustle and work hard and do a ton of stuff to reach your goals but having downtime and keeping yourself healthy should be daily activities to do.

Try to exercise at least 30 minutes a day. Get outside. Sweat.

Meditation is another great way to clear your mind and refocus on your goals so you have the strength to persevere when times get tough.

4 Join groups and network

Successful people surround themselves with other successful people.

Staying motivated requires that you have goals and purpose.

Money can be a good short-term motivator but when you have real goals and meaning behind the work you do you not only will reach them faster but it’s more likely that you’ll reach them at all.

Stay focused.

You’re going in the right direction as long as it’s forward.
