As Business owners or career professionals, sometimes, it might get a bit difficult to continue doing your best when no one seems to support you on your journey, or you feel sales are low and you are not getting the results you want. Here are ten ways you can motivate yourself when your feel unsupported:

  1. Clarify your vision: Remind yourself of your long-term goals and the reasons behind your entrepreneurial journey.
  2. Celebrate small wins: Acknowledge and celebrate even the smallest achievements along the way to keep momentum going.
  3. Seek inspiration: Surround yourself with motivational content, books, podcasts, or videos that uplift and inspire you.
  4. Connect with like-minded individuals: Build a network of supportive peers or mentors who understand their journey and can provide encouragement. You should also join networks like the ELOY Foundation Network for Business owners.
  5. Practice self-care: Prioritise your physical, mental, and emotional well-being by engaging in activities that recharge and rejuvenate you. Join the Exquisite Club, this is a membership for people who are intentional about their wellbeing. Click the link for more information.
  6. Set realistically reasonable and believable goals: Break down larger goals into smaller, achievable tasks to maintain a sense of progress and accomplishment. I say believable because in life we don’t get what we want, we get what we believe, so set goals you can convince yourself of and believe you can achieve by becoming the version of you that can achieve them. The process for this is in my book titled Convince Yourself First.
  7. Visualise success: Spend time visualising your desired outcomes and envisioning yourself achieving your goals. I cant stress this enough. You cannot become what you cannot see in your minds eye first. Therefore, to achieve any goal you set for your business or personally, you must see yourself with it in your minds eye first. Visualisation is key to achieving success.
  8. Stay resilient: Embrace setbacks as learning opportunities and maintain a resilient mindset in the face of challenges. Fall down 9 times, rise up 10 times is my mantra.
  9. Develop a growth mindset: Cultivate a mindset that sees failure as an opportunity for growth and views challenges as stepping stones toward success.
  10. Stay focused on purpose: Remember your purpose and the impact you want to make through your business, let this fuel your motivation to keep pushing forward.

Trying these will certainly move you closer to acjieveing your goals and you feeling good about yourself.
