What are the three keys to self improvement and
Inspiration is critical to
staying motivated and improving oneself. If you are not interested in your business, your
motivation level will never be high and you will not be able to sustain interest for very
Take an honest look at your
inspiration level. Are you excited about going to work or is it an obligation? You would be
surprised at the number of people who choose a business that looks good on paper, but in reality
does not interest them in the least.
These individuals will grow
weary and uninterested pretty quickly because they have no inspiration or passion to sustain
them during the difficult times they will encounter as a small business owner.
If you do not like your
work, then think how you can re-focus your small business to better match your needs. Or
consider making a change entirely. Without inspiration, there will not be motivated to even try
2. SETTING GOALS.
Short and long-term goal
setting is vital for any business owner. If you do not set goals, you would have no definite
purpose on which path of self improvement to take.
How could you possibly be
motivated if you were unsure about the direction of your company?

business goals every single day.
Another key factor in
getting and staying motivated is networking with other small business owners. No one person
knows all the knowledge.
However, when a number of
people begin working together, the challenges will just be there waiting to be
In fact, the isolation of
working alone is of one the most difficult parts of being an entrepreneur. You can never be on
your way to self improvement without the help of others. Mutual support is motivating.
Make it easier on yourself
by connecting with others either in your community or online. Even when businesses are not
related, you will often find common ground and ways to work together.
entrepreneurs report that finding the right networking group was a turning point in the growth
of the business. Working together, a networking group can help its members generate more
qualified sales leads and solve problems faster and more efficiently.
Sharing ideas, expertise
and experience is also an invaluable aspect of motivation and self improvement.
Your own personal team of
business owners will help re-energize you when the burdens of running your own business seem too
With your networking team
to rely on, you can accomplish more in less time and probably have more fun in the process. You
