I have been at the online niche working for about two years now and I must say that the niche is rewarding. I have however in the recent 3 or 4 months encountered a huge limitation to my progress. I have had a serious motivation issue that has caused a real problem to my work, as motivation has been lacking.
To put it in perspective, I am a writer and offer my services to clients. I have had a good year in 2012, having met most of the targets that I had set. Replicating this success is however proving to be an uphill task, as I am at pains to psych myself up towards working.
I am not sure if this problem is specifically ideal to me, though I have tried an array of remedies but to no avail. I have changed my work setting and environment, exercise, holiday, among other remedies that I had thought would help motivate me back to my old self. I have however not yet found a solution.
I guess what I need help of is to hear from another person, what makes you maintain focus working toward your goals, even when motivation is low? If you have been at such a point in freelancing, I would really appreciate your input as you might well hold the secret that I have been for long been looking for.
