You know what I’ve found time and again?
We all lose our focus, even on important things. Motivation is the same way. Because of your busy life or other factors, your burning desire to reach a certain goal or achieve a desired result can slip away.
That doesn’t mean all is lost.
I’m going to share with you 5 reasons why you might lose your motivation
1 – You experienced a drastic lifestyle change.
Stress, health problems, the birth of a new baby – these are all major lifestyle events. No matter how dedicated and motivated you are, life sometimes gets in the way of you achieving your dreams and desires. To be successful at any major achievement, you’re going to have to navigate speed bumps along the way. This includes any major lifestyle changes you may experience.
2 – You are not seeing results fast enough.
Some people get so fired up and motivated that they expect to see results immediately. However, some endeavours require time before significant improvement is realized. One way to keep from losing motivation if you don’t believe you are seeing results quickly is to break down your major goal into smaller chunks.
Pro tip: Don’t look at what someone else is doing or is accomplishing. That can cause you to lose your motivation.
When you see small victories occurring in your life, it gives you the motivation to keep moving towards your major goal.
3 – You have lost focus.
Do you know why horses wear blinders? It’s so that nothing else distracts them.
You have to learn to have virtual blinders on so you can focus and make major achievements.
Focus is also a huge part of motivation. When you are laser focused on a desired result, nothing stands in your way. Unfortunately, many things can make you lose focus. Try to identify focus-roadblocks before they appear and you can always keep on track, and in the intended direction.
4 – Your original motivation came from an outside source, not from yourself.
Self-motivation is always found in any great achievement. If your motivation is provided by someone else, it is easy to find yourself putting your goal achievement on the back burner. Find some way to provide your own motivation for whatever it is you’re trying to do. This usually means discovering the “Big Why” that is at the heart of your efforts.
5 – Your priorities have changed.
Sometimes a lack of motivation occurs when you have a change in priorities. This can sneak up on you, and is not always a conscious action. You may plan to bring in increased revenue into your business. You develop a schedule, take action, and are well on your way to making that happen. Then you find you don’t have the skill needed to fully execute the project
What that might mean is you have to hire a virtual assistant or tech person. There’s nothing wrong with that.
Just don’t put off getting back on track.
When it comes to running a business everyone needs support and guidance.
