6 Magic Ways to Build Motivation for Success

Whether it is your business online or in the “real” world, finding the motivation for success is a key part motivation for successof any great achievement.

Keeping yourself motivated and moving forward is an essential component for success.

In this article, we’ll examine 6 key ways to improve your motivation for success.  Motivation, in my opinion, is perhaps the hardest obstacle to overcome when building a business online.

To be clearer, I’ll assume that all that read this are starting a business from virtual scratch.  We all have jobs, families, and other duties which take up a great deal of our time.  Finding the time to devote to learning how to build a business online can be scarce.  It’s easier to simply sink into the couch, and put off those goals for another night.

In addition to that, we experience many obstacles-and not much success-early in the progress.  Finding the joy in forging ahead seems pointless sometimes, and many will quit long before then.

How do we guard ourselves from quitting, and find the motivation for success?

Quotes that define the motivation for success

Just to get started, I thought I would frame our topic with a few famous quotes.  These quotes speak to me, and display how important motivation is to our growth.

“Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become
the best that you are capable of becoming.” —John Wooden


“The starting point of all achievement is desire.” – Napoleon Hill


“Your true success in life begins only when you make the
commitment to become excellent at what you do.” —Brian Tracy

As you may see from these quotes, people define success in different ways, but passion words such as “desire”, “love”, and {“motivation” frame and fuel them towards achievement.

You have your own definition of success, I’m sure.  Use whatever is inside you to drive you forward each day towards your goals!

The 6 Keys- Motivation for Success

#1-Set realistic goals

You wouldn’t take a trip in your car without knowing where you are going and the same is true for business.  Always set, revise, check, and update your goals, and make sure they are S.M.A.R.T.

S.M.A.R.T. goals are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time bound.  There’s really no sense in setting unrealistic goals- it only leads to disappointment, and motivation goes out the window.

Your time frame may be abstract at first, but in time, your mind will accept this as a concrete deadline.  You will start to feel a good pressure to meet those timelines.

Be realistic- you have many responsibilities in life, not just with your online business.  Make sure your goals can be achieved in the time window you have to work on them.  If your goals start to stress you and take away from other duties in life, you will get frustrated and lose your motivation for success.

Use numbers (watch 10 training videos…..write 500 words….finish 2 posts…) and dates (goals met by Friday……done in a week….) to set timelines for your goals.  Move in small measurements, so you can check your progress, then assess your progress.

Once you have met your set of goals, write some new ones and keep moving.  The sense of accomplishment will propel you forward- it creates motivation!

#2-Check your progress

This is a moment to be honest with yourself.  Take all those measurable goals, and assess your progress.  Don’t cheat or candy coat this!

Remember, you need a road map.  Follow the map, get back in the road when you go off course, and don’t take risky “dirt road” shortcuts.

It’s easy to go light on yourself, and allow yourself some “wiggle’ room when you don’t meet goals.  You may think this will add some motivation, but your inner self knows that you did not honestly complete your goals in the way you wanted.

From a  motivation standpoint, cheating like this has an adverse effect.  You will lose motivation if you allow yourself to cheat.  To truly create solid motivation, tackle and complete those hard goals to perfection.

#3-Keep the right company

“Who you spend time with is who you become! Change your life
by consciously choosing to surround yourself with people with
higher standards!” – Tony Robbins

While it’s true that you should be your own person, you will benefit from the quality of company you surround yourself with.

Develop associations with successful people, and always hold yourself up to the highest standards.

If you can, seek out successful people for friendships, in addition to business dealings.  Look for people who exemplify what you want to be, or where you want to go.

Listen to them, learn from them.  This is the essence of mentor-ship, and it can be very motivating!

Developing and learning from relationships with like-minded people is, seriously, what drew me to become a Wealthy Affiliate member.  As i build my sites, I can connect with other members 24/7, attend live training classes with them, and glean details from them of what to do (and what NOT to do!).

#4-Right place, right time

Athletes practice and prepare repeatedly, so that when the big moment comes, they can shine.  The same goes for you!

In order to grab your big moments, you have to be able to put in the hard work behind the scenes.

Contrary to old beliefs, there are no “overnight sensations.”  Write, read, learn, every chance you get.  Keep building your toolbox of skill.

You gain confidence at each level you pass.  When your moments come to gain exposure with your business, you’ll be prime and ready to succeed!

#5-Don’t be afraid to fail

Oftentimes, we learn so much more from failure than from success.  Simply taking a leap of faith can provide a wealth of motivation.

Try things.  Allow yourself a little room to fail.  each time you succeed after taking a risk, you will feel a  blast of motivation that is unbelievable!

So many success stories start with a lot of failure and obstacles.  Don’t give up!  There is so much motivation to gain just by believing in yourself!

#6-Find and keep a work/life balance

When we become a slave to our goals, we quickly lose motivation.  Allow yourself the luxury to break away.

Your mind gets a chance to refresh, and you will find that you have renewed energy when you get back to work.

Make your time away from your goals just as important as the work itself.
