Everyday is not a Sunday.
Most of us make our way through bad days but there are miserable days every now and then that beat us down and squeeze our enthusiasm out. During these days we start questioning everything right from your decision to be an entrepreneur. If you give in to this feeling you will obviously shut down and shut out, and head back home rethinking your entire life. Your job is, therefore, to get out of this. There will be times when you feel no passion. At such times you should make an effort to gain it back.
Carefully Rethink Why you Started
You were passionate at first. Why? Remember all those reasons that led you to start the business. At the same time remember that it is not necessary for your business to be perfect. It is just important for you to have faith in what you are doing. Look at your business as a relationship – you have to work hard at times to make things work. Giving up will lead to a breakup. Only when you are relentless will your passion come back and grow stronger with time.
Learning new things will help you boost your business. You won’t find it monotonous and boring anymore. Learn something and update your skills. Pick a new skill! There is a lot in the world to learn. Open up and start learning so that you strengthen your business. Of course, don’t try to do too much too fast. Take it slow and nurture each skill. Learning will also change your perspective for the better.
Yes, taking breaks is important to avoid burnouts. As an entrepreneur it is surely difficult to take a break but if you don’t, you will lose your enthusiasm soon enough. Get yourself, thus, to take a break. Take a week off and do something fun. Stop worrying about your business during this time. When you come back to work you will be refreshed and motivated.
These are three simple tips to finding your motivation and passion!
Sometimes you will feel like you have lost all your passion in your work. Time to rekindle. Remind yourself of the reason why you started off, bring a learning curve to your business, and take regular breaks off work to come back fully charged.
