Newsletter 7th February 2022: When you don’t feel like doing the work…☹️

by | Newsletters


When other people get a lot done, you might wonder how they get motivated to do it all.

Especially if you look at your To Do List and just want to sigh.

Maybe your motivation ran out of the door and it doesn’t look like it’s coming back any time soon.

But don’t worry.

There’s a secret to motivation.

The secret is that it’s not important.

Really? What? Why?

It’s because, more often than not, motivation is nothing more than a fleeting feeling that you’d like to achieve something but it soon disappears faced with the difficult task of actually doing it.

Very few of us (including me) feel like doing the hard stuff that makes a difference.

But if we want to change things, create the thing, or make a living from our work, we do it anyway.

If you want a successful business, you can’t afford to wait around to be motivated to do what needs to be done.

It will never get done if you do.

If motivation arrives, welcome it with open arms, but just be aware it’s unlikely to take up residence in your brain long enough to see the job through!

You just have to do the work whether you feel like it or not.

That’s the secret to success in any area of your life, business included. 💖
