What To Do When You Lose Motivation with Your Pet Sitting Business
There’s this thing called motivation that ebbs and flows. Some days you wake up, and you’re like, “All right, I’m ready to do this,” and you get a whole lot of stuff done. The next day you don’t feel like doing anything and don’t want to work on the business.
This feeling is normal. You’re a normal human being.
Motivation is a discipline, not a feeling
Think about professional athletes. They have to wake up every day to train to be in shape. I highly doubt that these people want to do this all day every day, but they don’t have a choice. They are working at it every single day to play at their peak performance level.
It’s the same with your business. You need to learn to act even when you don’t feel like it.
Recommit to Yourself
It would be best if you told yourself, “Okay, this is what I set out to do. This is the business that I want to create. These are the results that I want to create. I’m the one that’s going to make them happen, and I’m going to do this whether I feel tired, whether I feel sad, whether I feel groggy. I’m going to wake up, and I’m going to work on my business every single day.”
Little steps add up. So every day, work on three tasks. You get more done, that’s amazing. If you can get three tasks done every day, you will grow leaps and bounds in your business.
So again, motivation is a discipline, and it is not a feeling. Once you learn that and get that mindset and say, “I just don’t feel like doing it, but I’m going to do it anyway,” you are going to reap the rewards.
Take this time to recommit to yourself, to your business, and to your future self, because your future self will thank you for doing so.
