How to stay motivated when you have no results?

by 18 replies
Correct me if I'm wrong but, normally people only feel motivation within the first few days of working on their business and it is quickly gone when they are faced with the reality of it and the numbers. Or in other cases when they finally get results. I know some people can be motivated everyday but most people are not like that. My question is what do you do when you have no motivation and you have no results? I've heard of using artificial triggers, but I have no idea where to go from that.

Anything would help. Thanks

    You can inspire yourself by breaking down what results are for you into smaller pieces. Business isn't just revenue and profit. Early steps are building a foundation. For example, gaining skills shows results in smaller ways. Implementing gives skills, along with clarity, focus and the joy of making progress.

    But, buying Think and Grow Rich, and setting it alight, also does wonders.

    You need to experience your goal.
    • If your goal is a new house, go browse new houses.
    • If your goal is a new car, go browse new cars, take one for a test drive.

    This can help motivate you and get you back on track. Basically you need a taste of the end goal.

    When i'm feeling lost and unmotivated I pray for confidence and strength. I put my faith into having Faith that god hears me and is truly helping me equally. I believe with my heart that you need to Ask (or pray) to receive, especially when there seems to be no way out. Blessings to you.

    True, after the first 5 years l lost a bit of motivation, but after 9 years, l had plenty.

    Results, l spent 2.5 years on one site, and had some promising results, but in the end, l built up a site with tons of content, but b****all in the way of profits, (unless $1.30 every month or two with adsense is noteworthy).

    I go and watch a motivational video, (usually Amit Meta's PPC Classroom seminar video) when l doubt myself or an idiot try's to give me a "becoming rich is impossible online, l am master of the universe, so l know" speech.

    Words won't convince these idiots, but a pile of cash on the table will!

    The end of the Shawshank Dedemption is also excellent to stay motivated. Hope is good, and ending up on a beach, sigh, good stuff.

    You need to create a file of motivational stuff.

    As for keep going, l found a million dollar idea a short while ago, (trade secret, sorry). How did l find that?

    Bloody hard work, persistence, ignoring stupid people changing tracks when needed, and continuing to try when things looked break, (you get your best ideas, when things look bleak).

    Idiots in stupid jobs, just don't get it, and probably never will.

    Someone in a job, and can see no other way of making serious money, will see your efforts as a waste of time, especially the ones that think that they know everything.

    The ones that know everything already know that it won't work, but when you start making more and more, then they will put it down to dumb luck, groan....

    I didn't find a vein of gold, because of luck, l found it, because l never gave up.

    Online is just a process of elimination, persist for long enough and try enough things for long enough, and you will end up doing what you have some sort of interest in, and making big bucks from it.

    And showing your idiot brother, or friend, that thinks that they know it all, that they only think that they know it all, because they are too gutless to try themselves.

    Good luck.

    Progress is what makes us happy, if you have a big goal that you want to accomplish, you have to brake it down in to small tasks, inch by inch, anything is a cinch.

    And you should learn how to enjoy the journey and still focused to the destination.
    If today you achieve one thing, & tomorrow you do the other one again and so on & on,
    you will star to gain a momentum.

    That way you will be motivated, you will be looking forward to do one more thing the following day.

    First of all, you need to do what you love. It's easy to quit or frustrated if you are doing things that you don't. But if you are doing what you love, no matter what happened you still could keep going just because you love it.

    Then you should read some success books. Success leaves clues. That kind of books will give you courage and motivation.

    Finally, you can hang out with people that you love for a while to relax.

    Hope this help!

      Just be cautious of the "Do what you love" concept, doing what you love doesn't automatically mean it will make a ton of cash, only that it is fun, etc.

      I am crazy about doing ceramics, but will that make me rich, nope, not unless l chuck 40k, into cheap, ceramic imports and put that crap into a shop?

      But making wealth from flyers, sure. I may not be head over heels in love with it, but it creates wealth, and gets in the ballpark.

      Be careful of motivational books a lot of them tend to crap on about the love, thing, and the heavens will open up if you do, crap.

      You have to fit your passions with something that can be leveraged within a reasonable time frame, and fits that model.

      Selling ceramics online, or through mail order is very difficult to pull off, even with box in box packaging.

      Real life is more complex than a stupid motivational book with an author crapping on to sell as many copies as possible.

    you can break into couple of areas:
    *set a vision for the long run.

    *after you did that set goals for week or so
    that can be achieved. this will help you keep the motivation on.

    *Focus on the way, not just on money, enjoy your ride
    even when it gets tough accept it because only
    then you can grow.

    *And read some good books that can help you
    take things to the next level. (for exmple think and grow rich.
    rich dad poor dad and more. )

    If you have more question I will
    be glad to help you are more
    then welcome to reach out.

    It can take a long time to get successful online.

    I started my first business in 2002. I had my best ever week in 2008. Most people would have given up in 2003.

    You just have to keep tweaking until you penetrate the firewall.

    Highly motivated to tweak regardless of the outcome.

    Business dies when you stop testing.

    Same goes with the mindset.

    For example, out of relentless testing, we've come up with something that will serve us for life. Tweaking is one thing you want to be obsessed with. Why people fail? Because they turned into copycats and try to stuff regurgitated drivel down the throat of potential clients.

    I'm thrilled being a part of this process.

    You have to break the mold and innovate until the fat lady sings.
