How To Stay Motivated

Motivation is a term that most entrepreneurs hear almost every day but let’s have a deeper look at it. What really is motivation and how do you grow it?

Motivation is the drive to achieve your goals or needs. Motivation is influenced by how much you want the goal, what you will gain and your personal expectations. Motivation involves the biological, emotional, social, and cognitive forces that activate behavior. In everyday usage, the term "motivation" is frequently used to describe why a person does something. It is the driving force behind human actions!

One reason you might have a lack of motivation is that you're leaving things "too open". When things are vague, the motivation will fade. When you're unable to tap into the motivation you need to succeed, it might be because whatever thing you want to get motivated for is too vague. Try to put your goals down on a piece of paper and visualise yourself reaching them. This is a simple way of fooling your brain into helping you achieving your goals for you, unconsciously! When your goals and the path you've chosen no longer is vague or undefined, your pronlem solving abilities and creativity will guide you to your dreams.
