How do you deal with losing motivation?

As entrepreneurs, we don’t have somebody looking over our shoulders urging us to stay focused on our priorities. We have to rely on ourselves and our own internal drive to keep us going. It’s not always that easy; especially when we lose motivation.

And sometimes, for whatever obscure physical or emotional reasons, we just don’t feel motivated to do anything!

I’m sure we’ve all suffered from it. A sudden, seemingly inexplicable loss of motivation. We feel dejected, tired, and hollow. We procrastinate on our tasks and our projects. Just getting out of bed is a struggle, and nothing seems to inspire us. Even though we recognise it and feel guilty about it, we can’t get ourselves to do anything about it.

Are You Afraid of Failure?

I’ve been thinking about failure a lot this week. So much so that I decided to share my thoughts with you.

Let me start by asking you . . Are you afraid to fail?

I was.
When I started down my entrepreneurial path in the early ’90s, my first two ventures failed spectacularly. It devastated me, and my confidence took a huge knock. I guess I could’ve given up then, but something inside me kept pushing me forward.

Build Your Dream Business

Ready to Build Your Dream Business?

This week I’m not sharing any insights or industry news with you – sorry.

Instead, I would like to share some personal news and, at the same time, ask for your advice and input.

 As this is a community of entrepreneurs and business owners, you may already be running your own successful business, or you may be itching to start one soon.

 So . . .

 If you haven’t gotten your business off the ground yet, or you are looking to start a new business from scratch, maybe we can help each other . . .

How has the pandemic affected you?

In the past, it was easy to look ahead. To create our goals; to plan for a better future for ourselves and our families; and to envision our future desires – like a new house, a better car, or a new job.

But the future doesn’t feel so certain anymore, does it?

So what we tend to do instead, is focus more on the past and the present. During this very unsettling time of lockdown, our attention has shifted from planning our future, to dealing with the repercussions of our past.

How to Confront Procrastination

Are you guilty of delaying work that needs to be completed until the last minute?
Maybe it’s a task you need to complete, a proposal you need to submit to a client, or an errand your spouse asked you to do.

I’m sure we’ve all gone through some extent of procrastination over the years – I certainly have. Studies show that over 20% of adults put off or avoid doing certain tasks by allowing themselves to be overtaken by distractions.
