You won’t always be motivated. That’s the truth. You will not always be motivated. Sis, there are just going to be times in business where you’re just not in the mood. You are not feeling it.
I want to remind you…
I want you to remember that you were created to do something very specific. You were born to do what you are doing in your business. God has breathed purpose into you. That alone should be motivation to get up.
I know, I know…
But I know, sometimes you still don’t feel motivated. You still don’t feel like doing it. I also want to remind you that, there is somebody out there that is waiting for your message and impact. Sometimes they are waiting on you to show up genuinely and say, “Hey, today is rough for me too.” In that moment, share how you are feeling.
It can be hard when you are reaching for a goal and you don’t easily see progress but that does’t mean we should stop. God has given you this purpose and vision for a reason. See it through. Taking action produces results. Without action, there is no progress.
What can you do to motivate yourself to show up and do the work?
Get a fresh pack of sticky notes.
I know this sounds random, but I love sticky notes and love writing my goals on them. Sometimes just the action of buying a fresh pack of sticky notes gives me the motivation I need.
Create a new background on your laptop.
I go through and I reorganize the files on my desktop. Creating that new background helps me to feel organized and gives me that motivation I need.
Close the tabs on your computer.
Once a week, go through and close the tabs on your computer. Close them so you can start fresh.
Wear new clothes.
Working from home means working in sweats! Sometimes just changing your clothes so you aren’t wearing those sweat pants helps give you that motivation.
Go to an event.
Go to an event or be in community with others. This is a great way to reenergize yourself when you are in the season of feeling unmotivatied.
Take a nap or a break!
Sometimes we just need a nap or a break from work. Sometimes we truly just need to rest. You’ll be more refreshed after resting.
Set stretch goals.
Don’t set impossible goals but set a goal that is going to take some work but that is something you can accomplish. Sometimes we aren’t feeling motivated because we don’t know what we should be doing next. Set those goals.
Read your vision statement or write what your dream day is.
This reminds me that God is not through with me yet. God wants you to do this very specific thing. You were created for this and thinking about the vision statement of my business helps me to feel that motivation to do what God has called me to do.
So sometimes, I may need to pick myself back up but I know God is not through with me yet. I might need a break sometimes but I’m not staying out of the game. I’m going right back in and doing the things I need to do to get motivated again to carry out God’s plan. I’m pressing forward and I’m not giving up. I want to encourage you to do the same.
