Motivation is a tricky concept and unreliable. It can come and go at a moments notice and sadly, you’ll have reoccurring periods of low motivation. Most days I don’t run off of motivation, but I’m still driven to get done what I need to.
This stems from having a crystal clear vision of my goals and the extraordinary lifestyle I want to lead so I’m DRIVEN. I know that one factor separating me from 99.99% of the population is I still get sh*t done on the bad days or the bad months when most people would quit or become lazy. Motivation won’t help you here, only DRIVE will.
Gary Vee maintains that it’s his gratitude; gratitude for his life, business, success, family, fans, etc. that keeps him driven when motivation is low.
What keeps you driven when motivation is running low? If you aren’t sure, you need to work on this and have a clear vision board that keeps you driven. Entrepreneur life (or life in general) is going to have its regular ups and downs. Everyone can work hard and be happy on the ‘ups’ or when business/life is good, winners are those that get just as much done if not more on the ‘downs’.
If you rely purely on the motivational weeks or days to build your life then you’ll sadly only achieve half of what you COULD achieve if you have relentless drive to accompany that motivation!
Now go kill it 👊
