What is motivation and I use it in my business
Motivation is what keeps you going when you don’t feel like continuing. Maybe you have a goal or a reward that keeps you going when things seem like they will never get better.
But there will be days or even weeks when you make no progress and you feel like quitting. I can tell you that if you never give up, you will never fail.
I hear people tell me all sorts of reasons why they can’t get into a business of their own. There seems to be as many excuses as there are people who will say no.
I’ve heard most of them too.
“My parents wouldn’t like it if I gave up my job.”
“I can’t afford it.”
“I tried it and it doesn’t work.”
“The sun was in my eyes.”
Well, maybe not that last one. But you get the point, right?
It’s much easier to offer up an excuse then to offer up your best effort and you continuing to try to make your dreams a reality!
If you are going to be in business for yourself, you’ll need to be a self starter, a diligent worker, a good decision maker and have lots of perserverence!
Now, I have slumps when nothing seems to work. It gets depressing at times. To get myself out of that frame of mind I can talk to my upline. Or I have read motivational books, listened to inspirational tapes or videos but my favorite way to get myself out of a funk is with music.
So what is motivation to me? It’s music!
You probably have been pumped up at your company’s events with music. Maybe “Eye of the Tiger” or something as equally uplifting. Really anything that gets you excited will work.
My personal and all time favorite motivational song is by The Eagles. It’s called, “Get Over It.”
It is extremely uplifting. It has a great tune and beat, excellent lyrics and never fails to make me feel better about all sorts of things. It addresses many of the excuses that people are likely to have or make up.
Anyway, if you ever have a bad day or can’t seem to get any results, no matter what you try, come back here often and have a listen!
So what is motivation, to you?
