Our teacher Julie asked us this great question:

How do I stay motivated to continue learning and growing my business?

We all have days when we feel like we are out of creativity and juice to keep on going. Sometimes all we need is a little break, a quick vacation, or some time out doing something else until the inspiration comes back. The issue is when stalling drags on for weeks or months or when we swing from super focused and active to not creating anything new at all. To avoid this, we have to establish some routines so that we can bring ourselves back to center more quickly. And, let’s be clear: Being inspired without acting on your ideas is not the same as being motivated, which means taking the idea and moving it forward.

We have a four-step process to keep us and our teams motivated.

1. Take baby steps every day.

This is very simple, yet largely overlooked by many. Opt to taking baby steps every day rather than preparing for the one BIG step someday in the future. Every day ask yourself: What are the one or two or three things I can without a doubt complete today? This way of thinking eliminates the “not-yet” or “someday-soon” syndrome that provokes the feeling of stagnation. Commit to small steps and integrity to your commitments, and soon enough you will see yourself getting more done than you ever imagined. This level of self-commitment requires that you check in on what matters most that day.

2. Form or join a mastermind group.

This is another super-critical motivational tool: Find a group of like-minded individuals who share some common interests with you. Meet this group weekly, bi-weekly, or at least monthly. Mastermind groups are great way to learn new things as you help others and others help you. You may find that some of your mentors or teachers have lead mastermind groups. Join them. It is money well spent if it provides you with new tools, new insights, and a sense of collective support.
