How to Stay Motivated when Things are Sucky
If you’re feeling like it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year, you are not alone. In entrepreneurship, the highs are high, and the lows are low. Being your own boss requires a lot of effort and can quickly lead to burnout, but there are plenty of things you can do to help you bounce back.
In the past six years since I started Encircled, I’ve definitely had my fair share of lows. Whether it was a product launch that didn’t go well or a decline in sales, there have been times when it’s been tough to stay motivated.
This week, I’m sharing 8 things you can do to stay motivated when things really suck. No matter what problems your business is having, having a negative mindset won’t help it get any better.
All of these suggestions are things that have helped me get back on track. Plus, they can all be done with any amount of time and no money necessary. So whether you’re in a slump right now, or just need a little pick-me-up, I hope you find value in this episode.
