Are you frozen in place in your business? Do you not really know where to start or what to do, so therefore, you do nothing?
I’ve been there many times over the years. And I can tell you that the only thing that gets you out of that funk is action and consistency. You will go through periods in your home business where you lose motivation, you get stuck, you lose sight of your vision or you simply just don’t want to do the work. Sometimes it gets overwhelming, sometimes it even gets boring, and sometimes you just get burnt out, and sometimes you just get discouraged..
So how do you move forward when you are going through these times? I have 4 things that have helped me, and I hope will help you too.
- The first and most important step is never give up. If you are in a funk, don’t quit. Even when you feel like quitting and like nothing is happening in your business, don’t quit and don’t jump to another business over and over again. The grass is not always greener.
- Do at least one thing a day to grow your business. If you are unmotivated or burnt out or whatever, you can still make yourself do one thing that will move your business forward. This could be a social media post, a blog post, a FB live, a phone call to one prospect, a follow up with someone you’ve already prospected or something similar. Just do something.
- Write down goals. This is so important. You have to have something to aim at. So write down a couple goals for this week, for this month and for the year. You need to set goals if you plan to succeed in your home business. You succeed by planning to succeed.
- Listen to or read personal development daily. This is the best way to get out of a funk, to get motivation and belief back and to get yourself headed back in the right direction. You can read a chapter, or listen to a CD, or get Audible and purchase some audio books. All are great options and putting the right information into your mind is so important to belief, motivation, vision and purpose.
So if you are unmotivated and stuck, here is a bonus tip. Decision. Make the decision. It’s seriously that simple most of the time. Make a decision to get back to work. Make a decision to succeed. Success happens when people like you and me decide that enough is enough and that failure is not an option. Keep going. Don’t let this year pass you by without going for it with everything you have.
To your success,
