How To Stay Motivated When Starting A Business Or Brand by Sherifastro(m): 6:13pm On Sep 15, 2017
Keeping yourself motivated when starting a business can be a difficult task. As a newbie or a beginner, you are likely to make a lot of mistakes.
People will not trust you because you do not have a positive reputation yet.

You will get a lot of people saying no before your first yes. In this post, I will share 5 incredible tips that can help you stay motivated in trying to lift your business or brand off the ground.

1. Set your own mission.

In my opinion, a successful business should have a mission statement. A mission statement describes your organization's goals. I would recommend that you write down, you and your company's core values.

You will have to memorize it and glue it in your brain "when i say glue, i don't actually mean you should use a real glue. grin " It should serve as a reminder as to why you decided to become an entrepreneur.


2. Make a great plan

A mission statement is useless if it does not have a plan behind it. You will have to put a legitimate plan together on how you will execute your mission statement.

I would recommend that you start off small before you execute bigger ideas. You should use cheap alternatives to master the skills required to execute what you decided to be on your mission statement.

3. Start with a routine

You will have to develop a great morning routine. You will have to get your mind and body accustomed to doing the same process every day until you see success. If you exercise a great routine every day when it comes to working on your business or brand, you will see success.

4. Plan ahead and set reminders

Even with a plan, it is very difficult to stay in a routine. To keep you from getting bored of your routine, I recommend that you develop a habit of setting daily reminders for objectives you have to complete. In my case, I got an alarm that said, "Get off of Whatsapp and get to work".


5. Set time to relax

In most cases, entrepreneurs get caught up in their business and over-load themselves (i was a victim of this before. According to a success magazine, If you are constantly working on your business and do not set a time to relax yourself, you can go into mental depression. This is actually true, in my case i had sleepless nights, According to success magazine, you should relax every hour for every 3 hours of work you do.

Starting a business is difficult, but if you follow these 5 things, you will surely see success.

Have seen a lot of students as entrepreneurs, so in your case, as a student you can still venture in to something. As for knowing what to go into. I can not decide for that, but i will advise you should set a time to think of what to venture into, have a positive mindset, determination and pray, seriously i mean pray.

When most of them get ideas on what to do that will bring money, they focus on that idea and implement it, with great determination and having no fear, during implementation if they fail they don't give up, what do they do? They try again.. When you fail the first time it does mean that is the end, you will learn from mistakes and pick up from that point.
