We all go through times where it is hard to get motivated to take action in our business. Winter for me is one of those times because where I live the weather can be not so nice and it is so much easier to make up excuses instead of going out in the cold!

But…

I have learnt that I lose so much momentum in my business when I stop that it is not really worth it for me. That is my motivation. I want my business to keep growing and I know how big I want it to be and some cold is not going to stop me. Besides, it gives me an excuse when I get home to have a nice hot bath! My reward for work well done.

Now that may not work for you. So let’s look at six other ways that you can get yourself motivated to take action in your business.

  1. Figure Out Why Your Are Feeling Unmotivated

Many times we just feel unmotivated and we accept it without looking at why we feel that way. Where I love it is easy to get unmotivated because there is a lot less sunlight between the shorter days and the amount of snow we get.

Maybe there are undealt with personal things going on that make it hard to start taking action. Maybe you are just unorganized and don’t know where to start.

Whatever the reason is, just recognizing it is a big step towards getting motivated again. Once you know what it is, it is easier to fight!

  1. The One Thing We Don’t Want To Do

We all have that one thing that we really dread doing in our business and the longer we put it off the harder it gets. This can really unmotivated you because it is all you are thinking about. The best thing to do is to get it done FIRST, then you will be excited to do the things you love to do.

  1. Don’t Get Overtired

It is so easy to be unmotivated when our bodies are physically exhausted. Proper sleep and rest will do wonders for your motivation. When you have energy, you actually WANT to do things. Tweet This

  1. The Middle Of The Journey Is The Hardest

When you are at the middle point of reaching your goals and dreams, that is time when you are most tempted to take it easy. You have done enough that you are starting to see results, but you still are far away enough that you can’t quite see the light at the end of the tunnel to motivate you.

The best way to motivate yourself is to set a goal and reward at the ¾ point. This will motivate you to start taking action again.
 

  1. Work On Your Self Confidence

Some people are unmotivated because they don’t truly believe in themselves. If that is the case then you need to take small steps and accomplish small goals to build your self confidence, which will motivate you to do more.

  1. The Sooner You Take Action…

Sometimes we are unmotivated because we have let things pile up and we are overwhelmed and don’t know what to do. When that happens the best thing you can do is take action quickly. Pick one thing you can do (and don’t worry at this point if it is the right thing) and do it. As you take action it will become clear which actions you need to take to produce better results.

I know taking action when you are unmotivated is hard. In fact I woke up this morning and did not want to get out of my very warm (have you figured out yet that I do not like being COLD) bed. I just wanted to sleep the day away.

But…

My desire to help people and build my business won out and here I am sharing this with you. So what are waiting for? Get out there and build your business!

To Your Success,
