-I'm not seeing the results I want from my efforts
-I am feeling down due to life in general
I'm sure we all go through these two things from time to time. Before, I would tend to give myself a hard time if I wasn't taking action and doing what I was supposed to be doing. Now though, I have a completely new approach. I take all the pressure off myself, sit comfortably and get into learning mode. I spend time reading lots of threads here at the WF. I watch IM videos at Youtube and elsewhere. I sign up for new lists. I DL new ebooks. I go to google and find new sites and tools. What are the results of this? I have new ideas. I have new resources. I have new tools. I have new ways of looking at different areas. Even if my motivation isn't renewed there and then, it will be soon.
Ideally, you will make a plan of action, and stick to it for as many hours a day, every day you can. Whenever you feel you can't maintain this, step back, sit comfortably and go into learning mode for as long as you like. You can take all the pressure off yourself this easily All the information and tools you need to succeed in IM are right in front of you and inside of you.
