Episode #288: How to Get & Stay Motivated

Mar 28, 2024

Did you sometimes find yourself feeling apathetic toward your business… and wondering what happened to your drive? You’re definitely not alone. Even Beyoncé has days when she just wants to ignore her inbox and binge her favourite reality show!

Motivation may be cyclical or seasonal — we may find ourselves more motivated at certain times of the day, week, month, or even year (and this can be especially true for mamapreneurs who have to juggle additional responsibilities around extracurriculars or summer vacations). When we’re feeling stretched to our max, we often struggle to get and stay motivated. And when this feeling lingers long enough, it will impact our business success in one way or another.

In this episode of The Business of Thinking Big, I dive into how you can regain your spark and get back on track when you start to lose your momentum — and why you should never beat yourself up for feeling unmotivated!

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌

  • How our conditioning affects our reaction to being unmotivated (and why this can be unhealthy)
  • How to recognize your patterns of motivation and your motivational drains
  • What can happen when you intentionally build recovery time into your business
