Another great guest post by Michael Chibuzor
Motivation is the fuel that powers the business engine. When you run out of it, you should top it up immediately. One of the things that’s going to make the huge difference in your success, is the level of motivation you have.
Are you motivated to stay focused to your business objectives, or about to give up?
Please don’t give up so soon. There is so much you would achieve if you stay a little longer. I’m giving you a wake-up call this day. It’s not over yet until you achieve that VALUABLE desire in your heart.
What’s The #1 Goal Of Business
To be honest with you, my #1 goal as a blogger is to make more money every month. Yes, I know a lot of bloggers who blog for passion. But realize that money is needed to keep the boat afloat. You do need money to renew your domain name and web hosting service. What about auto responders and other internet marketing services you subscribed to?
With more money, the journey of blogging becomes smoother and profitable. Listed below are 5 essential ways bloggers can stay motivated and Win.
1. Define Your Life
Every entrepreneur/blogger ought to get this point clear. If a 2-year old should come to you with this emotional question: “what is life? Would you send him away or give an answer? In a nut shell, life exists because there is an exchange of thoughts, ideas, insights, information, communication etc. Without these abstract nuggets of life, we wouldn’t be here today.
What I’m doing right now is enhancing lives around the world with my content. The reader also contributes by sharing this with friends and family. Life continues to go on until someone dies.
To stay motivated as an entrepreneur and win, don’t overlap the real essence of doing business; sharing, connecting, exchange of thoughts and ideas. If this is your guiding light, you would win most definitely.
2. Show Your Family Love
You might not understand how loving your family could keep you motivated. Honestly, each time I’m at peace with my wife and children, tremendous things happen in my blogging business. I get unquestionable ideas to grow my business.
Your family is a part of your business, and if you ignore or neglect their concerns, sooner or later, your motivational fuel is going to run dry. I may not explain why this happens but the infinite intelligence has a way of synchronizing your handwork and your family’s happiness.
Consider any responsible man critically; his business would grow at the rate of inflation if he doesn’t quit. Show your family love and they would motivate you for greater success.
3. Model A Successful Entrepreneur
One thing that’s going to inflate your inner strength is a great mentor. It’s so pathetic that several beginner bloggers don’t have role models whom they model after. You can’t succeed in isolation and everything in life revolves around “secrets.”
A great mentor could reveal powerful secrets to grow your business. So many people spend hundreds of dollar every year buying digital products that promise to make them thousands overnight. Whereas, a great mentor could give marketing advice to enhance your business.
And talking about motivation, your mentor could either motivate or discourage you. Choose wisely and don’t forget to read your mentor’s books and articles. It helps a lot!
4. Explore Your Niche
What niche are you?
It’s time you begin to explore it for potential income opportunities. When you continuously do the same work every single day, it becomes monotonous and motivation deteriorates. If you want to be motivated and stay on top of your niche, exploring your niche would be the next step.
Find out other opportunities that make you create new information products and build fresh subscriber list.
For instance, those in the shopping niche should look for other micro niches tied to their primary niche and scale it through. In addition to reviewing physical products, you could share saving deals. I used this niche strategy in my coupon blog where I share sittercity coupons and 6pm discount deals.
Explore your niche today and stay motivated to win.
5. Take Baby Steps Now
Taking the right action would bring about your growth. Take baby steps and track your success. As time goes by, you would increase your pace and take more massive steps. Bloggers who don’t take action often give up before they achieve their goals.
How are you going to achieve this?
Instead of downloading every free report on the internet, make a decision to implement what you learned from previous reports and e-books. By taking baby steps every day, the energy and motivation to take on the big project is released. Be a creative blogger today – take baby steps right now.
You don’t need a varsity degree to become a reckoned blogging entrepreneur. What you need is the right business priority that makes you unique and approachable. In order to expand your blog and become a successful business entrepreneur, you need to connect, share and communicate with other successful people.
But take caution: You can’t be like anybody. You’re unique, equipped with unusual abilities to achieve any feat. You can get past your failures and succeed. Remember, failure is not a person but an event – See you ahead!
