After all these years, you’re finally able to work from home on your own business. You no longer have a 9 to 5 job and you’re getting the feel of being your own boss. You are now the dependent on yourself to earn a living and manage your own time and resources. You have become the entrepreneur, the manager, the marketer, the bookkeeper and even the receptionist.
You will inevitably hit speed bumps and rethink why you decided to do this. You might be too busy and even more tired as compared to your previous salary paying job.
Here are a few things to remember to keep yourself motivated.
1. Think about “why” you did it.
Think back and remember what exactly prompted you to create your business. Whether it was for personal, financial reasons, think about what excited you to do it in the first place. Go back to the time where in you were stuck in your job and dreamed about starting your own thing.
2. Set a deadline.
Now that no one is there to push you, you find it hard to concentrate. So, if you keep on pushing tasks to tomorrow, you can set yourself a deadline. You can either do a personal deadline or announce it to a third party. You can promise clients a date to expect your work or maybe reserve a trip after you’ve completed a project. This way, you have a goal to work towards to and not just waste time not accomplishing anything.
3. Maintain a support system
Find a few friends or family members who will be there for you when things go wrong. You need a support system in place to avoid feeling isolated and outcast. You don’t have to take in everything by yourself, you know. You can always talk to someone out there who understands.
4. Establish a goal
If you have something you want, whether a car, house or trip- you can print a picture of one to focus your mind on actually getting it. What more motivation do you need to succeed? If you see it every day, it will serve as a very good motivator.
5. Take a break
If you feel too worn out, you can always take a break. You can just stop and take a nap or walk. This is a good way to rejuvenate your mind and body. Also, after a break you can work even better than how you were before. Remember that you’re working for yourself so don’t push too hard if you can’t cope. Maintain a level of balance between determination and over exertion.
6. Reward yourself
You have been in business for a few months or years. You are now earning enough and have built a stable reputation. You are free to reward yourself for all your hard work. Whether just taking a few days off or getting yourself something, be sure that you will enjoy and savour the moment. You’ve worked your butt off and now you deserve something to give yourself.
Remember that even though it is your business, you don’t have to do everything by yourself. You can seek for help or even hire when you’re business has grown. It is actually a good sign to be able to afford employees. Last, it is very important to motivate yourself to be able to build the best business possible.
