We all have those days. You wonder “why the heck did I get out of bed.” You have no energy to get things done. You have no motivation to even turn on the computer. Everything is just “blah.” If you have a problem with your mojo, here are some things I’ve tried to get things moving again.
- Taking a minute or two. Sometimes, the overwhelm is too overwhelming. So, I have to take a few minutes, revisit where I am and where I want to be. Just diving in isn’t going to work.
- Reviewing my plan. What is it that I intended to accomplish: today, this week, this month, etc.? Now, what do I have to do to meet my responsibility to my plan?
- Considering my resources. Let’s be real: we all cannot do everything. I’m always leary about using others in my business. But, sometimes I simply have to reach out to someone I know and say, “HELP”! Then I trust they will do the best they can with what they have.
- Sharing my goals. My husband may not 100% understand everything I do. Yet, explaining it to him is a great way for me to get clarity. Afterall, if he can understand it, then I should be able to!
- Making it better. If I’m doing a bunch of things poorly, I’m not going to be able to pat myself on the back for anything. I’d rather do one thing at the highest level possible, and then really celebrate in my success.
- Living my motto. At the bottom of every posting, I put my motto (see, below). Why don’t I ever ask myself this question? Afterall, I want to be successful too!
- Listening. If the noise is so loud you cannot hear, then how do you expect to be able to speak and be heard? When I find my mind running like a rollercoaster, I listen to others – either in person, on the phone, or via recorded teleseminar. This breaks my cycle and also educates me on new itesm, or gives me a refresher on what I may know.
- Becoming accountable. As a solopreneur, it’s have to be accountable to – well – yourself. You need to have someone else doing this. In my case, it’s my husband. I tell him to only let me spend “X” amount of time on something. Like clockwork, when I reach the limit he tells me. Poor man. He’s lucky if I don’t shoot rubber bands at him or shoo him away. (He was only doing as I requested. I’ve now asked him to get “ugly” with me – promising that I won’t “shoot the messenger.”
- Sitting back. This provides the biggest result for me. I get in the car, go somewhere, and just sit. No phone. No laptop. No radio. No nothing. Remember when sitting and people watching was popular? I am trying to revive that past time – even if it takes me one step at a time.
How can I help you (and myself) become successful today?
