MANY WAYS TO MOTIVATE YOURSELF TOWARDS BUSINESS SUCCESS!!!

Entrepreneur-Success-1024x562

There are internal and external motivators. You are in charge of your internal motivations but it is also very important to have external human motivators who push you in the same basic direction that you want to go.

The best motivator is to surround yourself with competent talented humans who share in your vision of what your company should be. You can’t succeed alone no matter how confident you are or how much you believe in yourself so surrounding yourself with confident, competent, and talented humans is essential for long duration business success.

You must understand what your weaknesses and strengths are and hire personnel who complement your weaknesses and make for an overall strong company. The other approach is to minimize your weaknesses by personal effort but this is time consuming, there is no guarantee that you will succeed in strengthening your weaknesses, and in business time is of the essence so hiring someone with strength in your weak category is often the smartest quickest approach.

Perhaps the second most important motivator is an ability to remain optimistic through some failures which are inevitable in a growing business enterprise. Understanding that failure is an opportunity to learn what not to do is very important in any enterprise. If your vision is clear and functional then most failures will not put your company on the verge of bankruptcy.

Motivating yourself to overcome the fear of failure or pushing yourself into decisively acting in the face of some uncertainty is vital to business success. Remaining confident and decisive in the face of adversity and beyond is essential in any growing business. Believing in yourself and your vision is important to maintain, especially at times when it seems almost everything is conspiring against your success.

If you have emotional intelligence then that is very important but to stay motivated you need good role models to learn from. Read about successful entrepreneurs and imitate their good points and network with other successful entrepreneurs who can give you some important vital advice on what to do and who to further associate with. Business ultimately is a human enterprise and you need relevant input from other successful business humans.

Consuming healthy food and drink, getting enough exercise, and enough sleep is vital to staying in peak optimistic performance mode.

Geoffrey James gives an extensive list of how to stay motivated in a business in this link.

ENTREPRENEURS: DO THINGS THAT MOTIVATE YOU AND AVOID THE DEMOTIVATORS!!!

MOTIVATORS:

Eat healthy tasty organic food and drink water, unsweetened juices, herbal teas, and tasty beer in moderation.

Exercise in moderation with natural body motions.

Get enough sleep at night.

Take short breaks to rest or think during the work day to avoid premature burnout and stimulate creativity which is nurtured by restful thinking pauses.

Be someone with integrity. Be honest, sincere, moral, dependable, competent, friendly, empathetic, and confident.

Try to associate with selfmotivated optimistic humans as much as possible.

Focus on what is good about your job and your life and practice being grateful for what you have.

Set goals which are achievable yet a little challenging.

Consider failures as learning lessons in what not to do in the future.

Remember that the only real failure is a failure to take action once the failure is acknowledged.

For every failure step back, examine your assumptions, make a better plan or do something different.

Communicate efficiently by being short and sweet and to the point. Listen more than you talk as a way of learning new knowledge about human personalities and mining their ideas and knowledge.

Find role models and reading material which inspires you.

Make your office an enjoyable work environment by trying to maintain an uncluttered appearance, having motivational or inspiring pictures and quotes, and having a comfortable area for visitors.

Try to enjoy the moment more often.

Give deserved credit to others and savor their appreciation.

Find ways to “give back” and return favors or help which you have gotten from others.

Throw away something in your office and at home which is useless.

Consciously analyze your strengths and make them stronger and work at improving your weaknesses or find humans who are strong where you are weak to work for you.

Actions speak louder than words so make sure that your actions match what you are saying or promoting.

Try to become more selfreliant by adding new useful knowledge and skills to your usual repertoire.

DEMOTIVATORS:

Avoid as much as possible pessimistic, complaining, unhappy, depressing humans who drain your emotional energy.

Tardiness, lying, deceit, undependability, selfishness, laziness, and gossiping all decrease good human relationships or interactions and demotivate humans to do their best.

Avoid too much unhealthy food and drink, no exercise, not enough sleep, and a frenetic pace with no breaks or rest periods which will ruin your body and mental health in the long duration.

Don’t believe in luck or fate as being important factors when setting and achieving goals.

Don’t consider blaming other humans a solution for failures which are your ultimate responsibility.

Don’t dwell too long on your past successes and failures and waste precious time needed for present and future actions.

Don’t expect perfection from others and yourself all the time since you will too often be frustrated and obsessed with performance which doesn’t meet your unrealistic standards.

Try to avoid describing failures with emotionally charged words such as terrible, disaster, horrible, stupidity and try to use less impactful words such as annoying, irritating, troubling, and upsetting. Emotionally intense words are longer lasting in memory so don’t emphasize your failures or they may begin to dominate your successes in your mind.

Don’t procrastinate once you have determined your task priorities of what is important to do first to last.

THE TRUTH ABOUT OVERCONFIDENCE

overconfidence-investwithalex

Overconfidence is seen as a drawback for the average human because most  don’t want to take big risks with their lives and prefer security and low risk living.

Entrepreneurs are unique humans prone to high risk taking and actually frequently need to have overconfidence to maintain motivation in reaching their lofty goals.

About 9 out of 10 startups do fail even if you are overconfident and the difference in the ones that fail and succeed is frequently a result of too few skills, knowledge, preparation, and emotional or human intelligence. 

Emotional or human intelligence means surrounding yourself with competent trustworthy humans who can help you in your business so that you don’t have to devote too much attention to minutiae and areas where you don’t have that much expertise. You have to be a good leader who can motivate trustworthy competent workers and have to be very competent in your chosen profession with business knowledge and a flair for promotion.
