“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” ~ Thomas Edison ~
Starting on a new path be it a career change, venturing into business or penning a memoir, can feel overwhelming at it's worst, a prideful time and anxiety producing for sure.
Most of us probably find ourselves searching for ways to stay highly motivated and driven to stay focused on surviving what lays ahead.
You may seek out inspiration anywhere you can find it or hunker down with your nose to the grinding stone.
Whatever you do to keep forging ahead, one of the best resources for flaming your dreams, tuning your mindset and keeping your motivational meter ticking is to invest in these two actions:
First, a daily and steady diet of self education, at your own pace, in your own space and with a purposeful agenda of self improvement.
Second, frequently network and connect with peers who have been there and whose habits, characteristics and achievements you admire, a work ethic aligned with your values and lifestyle. Seek out others with similar areas of interest but also others with seemingly unfamiliar and unrelated passions from yours: authoresses, small business owners and life coaches, are a few examples.
You never can predict or pass up the opportunity to both learn and lean on others for when moods are dreadfully low spirited or days highly productive.
Share the good, bad and ugly, from a place of your comfort level while making space to step outside your comfort zone. Thankfully, visionaries and entrepreneurs who have been through it all before are usually eager and ready to provide you with support, advice, lend a helping hand or just say something to help get you through those early days when you aren’t sure if success is in your future or farfetched. Never be shy about reaching out to others who know a thing or two about what it takes to take a leap of faith into a new career arena or onto an uncharted path.
Be genuine and honest with yourself and others. After all this is your plan and path so pursuit it with vigor and vigilance for your progress hinges on your attitude and the latitude of choices you make to leverage tools, skills and technology to help you to spring into measurable actions.
So dedicate yourself and declare ownership of your vision and mission so you see it through from start to success.
