Though the decision to live a richer life can be thrilling, one of the largest hurdles for any entrepreneur can be something that we all lack from time to time - motivation.
Each day, our Representatives discover there is nothing more liberating than deciding to take their lives and financial freedom into their own hands. There is definitely something to be said for being able to take a conference call from anywhere in the world, earning extra income and helping others fulfill their dreams.
Though the decision to live a richer life can be thrilling, one of the largest hurdles for any entrepreneur can be something that we all lack from time to time—motivation.
When calendars are full of presentations, people to meet, and a barrage of emails and phone calls to tend to—motivation abounds! It’s during the times when the phone may not ring as much, a presentation is cancelled or you’re one “no” away from throwing in the towel when motivation sinks like the proverbial stone.
So, how do you get your motivation “mojo” back?
Why Are You Doing This?
For starters, think about your “why.” This is huge at WorldVentures! What is it that makes you get up and strive to make each day more productive? Do you want more time with your family and loved ones? Do you desire to leave a legacy for your children to continue to build upon? Do you need to earn a bit more money each month to assist a relative? Or are you just ready to be free of anyone’s time clock but your own?
The “why” of things is always deeply personal, and is great motivation for making just one more call, setting up just one more presentation and getting you past the last “no.”
Keep Good Company
Another way to get motivated is to get out there! Connect with other Representatives in your area or attend a training and motivational session like Boot Camp. There is no better way to resurrect your motivation than to be surrounded by others who feel the same ups and downs as you and to see how they keep their energy levels high.
Become a Goal Keeper
Have you ever heard the question, “How do you eat an elephant?” The answer? “One bite at a time.” A great way to keep your motivation at maximum levels is to set goals for yourself. Setting goals will give you purpose and accomplishing them will spur you to achieve more.
Are you making three contacts a day right now? Set a goal to make five. Did you attend one training event last year? Promise yourself to attend three this year. While it’s great to have long-term goals (like achieving IMD status), be sure you celebrate the steps you take to attain them.
At the end of the day, only you determine how far you will travel in life. So when you find your motivation dwindling, remember that attitude definitely determines your altitude.
