Staying Motivated in Tough Times

What’s the best way to stay motivated when the chips are down?  Through the years in coaching for business, we see what is effective.

One thing that works unfailingly is to focus on the good in the moment.  Where is the good in the bad, in what you don’t like, what you didn’t want to happen.  What is good in THIS moment?

A business coach will let you know that it helps to step back.  Take a break, and smell the roses so to speak.  Enjoy the sunny day.  Pat the dog.  Say hello to your co-workers.  Laugh at a joke.

Then, refreshed, and with added perspective, let the ideas come to you.  Ideas appear more often with a relaxed mind than a stressed one.

Enjoy the challenge of the day.  You are there to bring your spirit, ingenuity and enthusiasm to this challenge.
