What is the Key to Motivation

Motivation is the reason for people’s actions, willingness and goals. Motivation is derived from the word motive which is defined as a need that requires satisfaction. These needs could also be wants or desires that are acquired through influence of culture, society, lifestyle, etc. or generally innate. Motivation is one’s direction to behavior, or what causes a person to want to repeat a behavior, a set of force that acts behind the motives. An individual’s motivation may be inspired by others or events (extrinsic motivation)[1] or it may come from within the individual (intrinsic motivation)[2]. Motivation has been considered as one of the most important reasons that inspires a person to move forward.[3] Mastering motivation to allow sustained and deliberate practice is central to high levels of achievement e.g. in the worlds of elite sport, medicine or music.[4]

Use what motivates you to build your business. Motivation comes easily if there is a Dream or Goal that excites you. 

What do you Love to do?

Me: I love to garden … I love to take outstanding photos … I love to eat healthy.

So think about this —- these things or activities that I love make me happy and put me and my mood in a good place. I can talk for hours (literally) about them and never lose my excitement.  I can use these “triggers” or “loves” to grow my business. These topics motivate me.

Here’s how —- Start a blog and get excited about sharing your gardening skills and advice, your excellent photo shoot sessions or just a great picture each day. Or how about some Good recipes that you actually make and eat on a regular basis.  Be genuine and focus on sharing these things.

Don’t spend time looking at what others are trying to do to build “their” business. Focus on yours!

Make sure you have or use items from your business and incorporate them into your blog posts. 

Be Genuine … Encouraging .. and Have Fun!

Checked with my Pinterest boards and I have one titled Motivation.  Let me know if you have something that should be there!!
