In many things we do, work, school, hobbies etc. losing motivation can destroy our hopes.  For the entrepreneur, this can cost them valuable time and money. The biggest problem is that lack of motivation can take hold of us and distract us without us realizing. Then one day we are sitting in a chair wondering what happened. There are many ways to keep motivated and focused on achieving our goals

Are you sitting around researching and studying your possibilities? Well at some point you have to stop and jump into action. Procrastination can last a lifetime if you let it. Researching and studying is good but it does not get things done. The only results and self-satisfaction come from action.

Everyone makes mistakes. Don’t let a mistake sit you down to pout, learn from it. In school, you made mistakes on tests and homework. It was a learning process. It is the same in business. Let it be your teacher. What caused the mistake, where was the mistake made, how was it rectified and what can you do to prevent it from happening again?

So many people make the mistake of thinking they can do everything themselves. You can’t do everything yourself. Sometimes you can ask friends to assist you but what do they know about your business and how ambitious are they? Surround yourself with people who are driven and business-oriented. Let them be your pace cars.

Staying motivated is not all work. Take breaks, take a couple of days off. I remember teaching at a university. So many students would complain that they are always so tired and stressed. When I asked them what they do in their free time they said they sit and study. That is all they do. You have to have time to yourself, you have to get exercise to keep functioning. You have to stay motivated.
