When Motivation Isn’t Enough

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! 🙂

    Nothing strikes up comments better than a little controversy. I am actually working on a controversial blog post right now. With that said, keeping your writing positive and motivational is definitely the high road.

    In general people dislike being “sold”. People want the freedom to choose and fell comfortable when purchasing any product or service. A new technique called attraction marketing is getting a whole lot more attention and deals with that. One primary focus of the attraction marketing formula is developing personal relationships with existing clients and become a person of value, so that they have the underlying feeling of attraction and want to come back for more.
