Inspiring Yourself

These thoughts from a business mentor of mine named Gary Burke are so valuable for all of us work at home moms. I intended to write something original along these same lines, but I just can’t find any better way to say it, and so I gratefully share with you Gary’s thoughts:

I’m sure you realize that it is your responsibility to motivate and inspire yourself. I know we get that from outside sources at times and it’s always nice. But, life and business building is much easier once we know it’s our job to keep our personal mental state at a level where we want to do what we know we should be doing.

What inspires you? A person, a book, music, a 5 mile run, your vision of your future, or maybe just relaxing and doing some thinking? Regardless of what it is, do it…get it….make it happen. You’ll be glad you did.

    That is so true and all too often forgotten. As success in so many work from home businesses is arrrived at through daily, determined perseverance it is so important to keep inspired. One thing I do is remind myself why I started in the first place (financial independence, more time with the kids etc.) and returning to that simple inspiration motivates me. Also remembering that the world won’t crash around my ears if I get up from the computer (and most of us are working from computers, I think) and do a bit of excersise, look out into the garden or go for a ten minute walk in the park. It all helps pull things back into persoective and release the sources of inspiration. Thanks so much for your timely and insightful post.

    This is so true. There comes a time that I get lonely and bored of my life but I just think of my family especially my son and I’m inspired again. It’s really hard to motivate ourselves to work since we are the boss of our own. But it’s just a matter of discipline I think. Getting up early in the morning and work for our family still is the best thing that inspires me.
