Actually I have felt, and still do to a point, just like you. I read a lot of success stories about people who were a lot worse off than I am and how they kept their determination to make their dream happen. That right now is my motivation - to accomplish the goals that I have laid out and ultimately succeed with my business. The one thing that took me a while to learn was to do what you are best at and bring in others to do the rest. Also establishing small, achievable goals will help keep you moving forward. I always ask myself `What I can do today to accomplish this goal? It`s helped me out tremendously. Good luck with your venture.
Oh` goodness, been there a good few times. I`ve handled that situation in many ways, but walking away from it, has been the best solution thus far. Do something else . I do what works for myself to clear my head, feel more energized/motivated.
I`ll finish a home task, with great music playing, which always gives me satisfaction and inspires me to move forward. I`ll treat myself by dropping my kayak in the lake.Take the dogs out for a walk or ride to pick out something new from a pet store. Take a ride to the gym, a good work out usually does the trick. Go see my friends and try not to talk about business. I`ll turn on a movie and sometimes end up snoozing for a bit, which helps me to relax. There have been times that I simply needed to get in a vehicle and take a short weekend drive to where ever my picked destination would be, and it`s usually going out of state. I turn on my music and cruise. That really does the trick, when I`m really stuck. I`ve always come back, ready to roll .
I love fishing and me and my partner go fishing to clear our heads and get out of the office. We run a small shop and have faced many of these challenges...Fishing and being outside seems to clear our heads and gets us back in the right mindset to get motivated and bang it out!
Good one Craig!
