My number one thing that I use to stay continuously motivated is focusing on making my partners or my clients as much money as possible. As simple as that is, that is the number one motivator. How can I make other people money? If I can make other people money, I typically make money.
How do I stay focused and proactive when fear, hardships and procrastination have the best of me? I’ve gotten really good at this one! When hardship or procrastination slip in, I ask myself what am I afraid of and that’s going to happen... I do an inventory of asking myself --- What am I afraid of? Once I determine what it is that I’m afraid of --- I kinda look at how do I feel about that, then I determine what is the simplest thing that I can do to step out of that fear or procrastination --- maybe, it could be like take a walk. Or if I’m really feeling afraid about a project, I decide on what’s the simplest or smallest thing I can do on that project that will get me out of the fear or procrastination.
What is your definition of success?
My definition of success has to do with the techniques I use to stay motivated --- I judge of my success based on how successful everybody is around me.
