What Motivates You to Work?
What Motivates You to Work?
That paycheck will never be big enough if it's the only reason you're going to work.
Each of us respond to different drives and motivations, but there are many drives we can choose from that not only make our careers more fruitful but also more enjoyable. Those people who experience the “Sunday Blues” are in careers which may provide security and certain freedoms, but they lack joy and fulfillment. Sunday comes around and many of us immediately begin dreading our work week; thereby, ruining the rest of their weekend for ourselves and those we are close with. There is no point in staying in careers that make us miserable. There is so much opportunity in the world. We have to find the correct motivations to go out and make these opportunities happen.

(1) Lena Elkins - I've never told anyone this before, but......
1. As millennial entrepreneurs get better and move up, the work deepens. You become much more aware of your clients' needs, you raise your expectations for yourself, and you make the stakes a little bit higher. You start hiring some team members. Investing in coaches and mentors. Renting an office space. And then, for 90%...there's a crash. A lot of people can't handle the responsibility and weight that they've created. And simply out of overwhelm and pressure, they quit. But those who surpass their wildest dreams and continue to build scalable businesses are those who view that pressure as a catalyst for transformation. If you want to win in business not just this year, but over the next 20, learn to sit in the discomfort and trust that you can handle it. Because you can. 💪

2. If you want to see consistent growth in your business, you should always have 3-5 upcoming milestones to look forward to. Right now, I'm writing my book proposal, getting ready to go on TV in the States, and getting ready to speak in Bali. Having in-reach goals is essential to staying motivated and focused. So if you don't know what your next steps should be or what milestones you should be hitting, get a coach and get clear on your success roadmap. Otherwise, you'll lose sight of what you're aiming for and land nowhere.

3. A very small percentage of people pursue entrepreneurship, and an even smaller percentage choose to do transformational client-based work like coaching and consulting. That means that out of billions of people, you were born with a unique spark that drives you to do something extraordinary. Don't suppress that feeling - own it, love it, appreciate it, and act on it. The sooner you can harness and strengthen your god-given gifts, the sooner you can serve others and get paid top dollar for it. Not everyone was born with that spark, but you were. Now do something about it.
