Building Momentum- Getting Your Momentum Back

When you first begin your business you are full of optimistic potential, momentum is high. Building momentum comes pretty easily, it’s really just there. That energy is created naturally with your enthusiasm. It’s new, it’s exciting. The potential seems limitless. So you are doing the deeds, working hard, prospecting, talking to people and getting them excited.

As time goes on you can lose that momentum. You can begin to lose that excitement and eventually you may lose interest. There are many reasons that can happen, team members change, company changes, and especially personal issues and family problems.

Loss in momentum happens to most everyone at some point or even multiple points in their business but getting it back is the key.

Raising the momentum in your business will have a major effect on how well you do. Keeping the momentum up is even more important, but if you have lost momentum you can get it back. Momentum is created with energy

The easiest way to get back your momentum is to take action and lots of it. Taking action starts to create enthusiasm, first in you, then it will spread to those around you. Enthusiasm is contagious.

Create enthusiasm in yourself and it will rub off on those you talk to. If you are having trouble doing that. Go back and ask yourself the following questions.

1. Why did you start your business?

2. What goals did you want to accomplish?

3. Is it still possible to achieve these goals?

The answer is likely to be yes to all these questions.

So what has really changed? Not the business, not the opportunity, definitely not the potential. What has changed is your perspective. A really great way to get your perspective back in line and to build up your enthusiasm is to read books that help create excitement for what you are trying to accomplish. There are so many. A few of my favorites including some that are downloadable can be found at http://homebusiness-wealth.net/thinkandgrowrich

You can also watch videos specifically created to help you build your business. When you watch these videos they give you back that sense of “I can do this” They show you people who have done it. People like Anthony Robbins, Eric Worre, Bob Proctor, and many othersBuilding momentum have many videos on Youtube. They’re free and they are a great way to start to get your enthusiasm back.

These books and motivational videos can help get you in the proper mindset. Bring your vision back into perspective. So that you can get to building momentum for your business again. They show you ordinary people just like you, doing extraordinary things. This is not a false sense of power. The power is real. The power is in you. You just have to do things that remind you of that each and every day. It may be a bit hard at first but keep it up every day. If you have others that will join you in building momentum, even better. Teamwork really can make the dream work. When you are accountable to each other and you are each committed success is almost guaranteed.

Keep building your own inner momentum and you will start to see it in others. Other people will start to feel that momentum. Feel the power and you will see the results in your business and in the businesses of those you are working with. Action begets enthusiasm, enthusiasm is contagious and this a creates momentum, the kind of momentum that you can ride all the way to the bank.

Building Momentum in your business takes time and effort but success always does.

What are you willing to do to change your current circumstances?

Are you in a job you don’t like? Working with people you would rather not know? Don’t feel bad we don’t mesh with everyone. It’s natural and it’s one of the things that highlights our differences but do you have to stay there?

The answer is no, at least not long term unless you have another way to sustain your current lifestyle and needs. You do have a choice. You can work from home, doing something you are passionate about.

It’s not easy, but it’s not hard either. It takes consistency and most of all self-discipline. When at work you have deadlines and quotas and often people looking over your shoulder.

The key is to have a plan of action, EVERY DAY, and stick to it. No matter how easy it is to get distracted. Don’t. Write it down and do it.

There are so many work from home opportunities today. You have vitamins, shakes, wraps, trading, marketing tools, coffee and my absolute favorite, travel. That’s my gig.

You have no excuse to make it work. While some say they don’t have the time, there are single moms with multiple kids and full-time jobs making it and breaking through it!

I really like social media. You do have to step out of your comfort zone. You do have to talk to people but it is not as hard as you think once you do it. The thing to remember is that these are just people. They have no authority over you and if you mess up on the first ones, delete them from your friends list. Just kidding, but not really.

Be genuine, be you. Make sure that you are there to help others. Anyone who says they don’t care about the money is not being honest but putting others first will lead to more

 

Who’s Your Mentor?

 

If you are in a home based business, you need to make sure you are constantly learning and applying. No matter what your experience level. You need someone or several someones to keep you motivated and on track.

Who are your inspirational models? Who do you look up to? Napoleon Hill, Andrew Carnegie, Jim Rohn, Anthony Robbins? These are all fantastic mentors. There are plenty of lesser known mentors that you probably follow as well. Do you try to listen to them daily?

Even mentors have their mentors and they make sure to keep the messages fresh in their minds.  Anthony Robbins first mentor was actually Jim Rohn.  Jim Rohn’s mentor was Earl Shoaff and Napoleon Hill’s mentor was Andrew Carnegie.  All great men that followed other great and successful role models.

You don’t have to do this everyday. Everyone is different and you know what works for you. Just make sure that you are constantly watching or listening to something that helps to keep you focused and motivated.

It is very easy to become distracted by life in general and before you know it, you are not doing what you need to do to promote your business.  Keep yourself motivated, keep yourself on track, choose your mentors then watch or listen to them as often as you can.

Collaborate with people in the business you are in and remember you can also learn a lot from those that are in similar but different types of businesses as well.

Remember that self-discipline is required to run a business and it starts with making sure that you are learning from successful people past and present.
