If like me you are a business owner, motivation is crucial as it drives passion and determination to run a successful business.  As I love what I do and the variety the business gives me I find it pretty easy to stay motivated and focused but if you sometimes struggle here are some tips to help you stay motivated.

  1. Set clear and achievable goals: Having specific and measurable goals helps to provide direction and motivation for business owners. Break larger goals into smaller, achievable tasks to help stay on track.  I am fortunate to be part of a Mastermind Group that meets on a monthly basis and keeps us accountable for our goals.
  2. Celebrate successes: Recognise and celebrate the successes, big or small, to keep the motivation going. This helps to create a positive work environment and brings with it a culture of success. So for me yesterday I gained a new client in a new and exciting industry for me and I am so excited to be learning all about this along with one of my associates.
  3. Take breaks: It’s important to take regular breaks to avoid burnout and to maintain motivation. Taking a break can help business owners to recharge and come back to work with renewed energy and motivation.  After an extremely busy year last year, I was feeling a little burnout by Christmas but am looking forward to a break this month in Jamaica.
  4. Focus on the “why”: Remind yourself of the purpose and passion behind starting the business. This can help to reignite motivation during challenging times and remind business owners of the bigger picture.  Again, for me that is 15 years ago next month and yes there have been ups and downs, but I love the challenge and excitement this brings in being able to help others in their business.

So take proactive steps to maintain your motivation and focus to maintain the drive you need to build and grow your business.  I hope you’ve found this latest news interesting and helpful.
