Most days I wake up feeling like I have the motivation and energy to build and grow my business, and handle the myriad of challenges that come with it.
Some days I wake up and couldn’t feel more different from the productive, energetic, grinding person I am. These days have me feeling limited in my interest to push the limits and handle what I have to do to be “productive.”
Being a solopreneur means that you are personally responsible for everything. After all the work, business development, accounting & other daily tasks are done, you have to find your motivation.
Today is one of those motivating days for me (resulting in this post.) I am considering what I can learn today to advance my skill set. I have already reflected on the open projects we’re currently working on, thinking back on some of yesterday’s reading and how it applies. The reading from this morning already resonates well with me mentally, most likely catalyzing today’s motivation. The challenge we face is how to have this energy everyday, and maybe you already do.
Even though there is a need for the slower pace to stay fresh and excited, sometimes it’s hard to remember that the empowerment and motivation I get can come from those slower times. When you’re more clear and focused you can keep your business anxieties at bay. The challenges I saw yesterday as giants are today’s stepping stones. Now I can get back to doing great work for my clients.
Today I want to get out and meet new people. Have strategic conversations about my client’s projects, pushing the barriers past where we’ve been. Take risks. Create something I haven’t before. Learn.
Motivation is great fuel in your entrepreneurial gas tank. If you’re feeling motivated today, make the most of it.
