Sometimes reading other people’s motivational stories just isn’t enough to lift your spirits. I’ve tried to make it a habit of posting motivational pieces every Monday (yes, yes, I know… it’s Tuesday… all the more reason to get motivated!), this one coming from Lisa Barone – It’s Not the Recession, You Just Suck. With a title like that the comments were closed over there pretty quickly. The ranters were delivering a serious tongue lashing. Perhaps Lisa didn’t convey her message in the friendliest of terms, but several of her points still stand. In this economy, feeling bad for yourself and wasting away your time on Twitter won’t change a damn thing. You have to be willing to work harder; that goes double for those of you who intend on becoming entrepreneurs amidst one of the worst employment famines in United States history.
This isn’t the time to feel bad for yourself. Now is the time for action. Work harder. Don’t let self-doubt, peer pressure and blame get you down.
Nobody’s gonna break your stride! Onward and upward you must press, dear readers! 🙂
