You know how it is in the beginning when you make the decision to start your own business. You’re on FIYAHH with all that positive energy about it! The crazy part is, you are so geeked until that flame starts to go dim because:
a) You aren’t seeing the results you want right away.
b) What you’re doing doesn’t seem to be working so you’re not sure of what to do next. It’s really not that deep, but you need to know how to go about staying motivated in your business so that you stick it out.
This will probably be the hardest times to go through when dealing with building your business. At some point in time, we all want to throw in the towel.
But where will that leave you? In the very same position you were in before you made the decision to pursue your dream of living a lifestyle of financial freedom. Consider a few ways that you can help yourself to re-ignite that fire you had for running a business and finding your own path.
Ask yourself this:
Why did you start your business in the first place? There’s no memory loss here. If it were 10 years from now, you would still remember.
Were you tired of working for someone else and wanted to be your own boss instead?
Did you want to spend more time with your family and enjoy all the things life has to offer?
If you don’t want to return to that way of life, then certainly don’t give up when the chips are down.
What is it looking like for your competition or others in your niche? Is everyone having a rough time or is it just you?This is something you will have to evaluate when it comes to your growth compared to others in your niche. Now there are two things that can get you motivated to keep going here.
First off, your competition may be doing better than you are. Who really cares? Maybe they passed the learning curve that you are still on and they figured it out. Anyway, you can get moving and step up your game and learn from whatever others in your niche are doing to make financial gains where you are lacking.
Second, if your competitors are going through the same things as you, you can rise above all of that and start making your mark in the marketplace. ALWAYS go back to what you started the business for. If this is going to be your baby, and you are determined to make a living and reach your goals, keep looking at the bigger picture.
Have you written down your goals?
Every business that’s in business has to keep their eyes on the prize in order to move forward. Goals are important for setting your path. But, if they don’t exist, then where is your business going? The foundation must be set before you reach any level of success.

It will keep you driven more than anything and consistency will keep you progressing. And speaking of consistency…
Your energy levels, need to be in check for this to work!
Here’s what all of that means…
There are many debates about what to believe and what not to believe in the world, and I for one can only speak for myself. I’ve studied the Law of Attraction inside and out and it makes sense to me in a number of ways. Do I believe in positive thinking? Absolutely. Do I believe in positive energy? Of course.
This may come as a surprise to you, but the greatest secret to date is not and has nothing to do with the Law of Attraction. I’m sure many people have figured that out by now but the concept is still interesting.
I’m sure at some point, the knowledge of creation has flashed through the minds of those who have the willpower to grow and make improvements in their life. It’s highly noted that this is a huge part of history because now, more than ever, people have become aware of how essential their thoughts are on the field of conscious energy outside of themselves. Powerful indeed, and like never before.
There is a lot that goes into laying the foundation and applying the Law of Attraction. You have to understand how energy works in general and also the energy within yourself. You can’t go deeper into this understanding with just your thoughts alone.
It’s your energy that has everything to do with your reality. Unfortunately, there are very few people that understand the effects of increased energy and the power that lies there.
The law of attraction teaches us to have and attitude of gratitude, but just like anything else, there is a science behind the scenes. The assumption is that happiness comes via positive thinking. Somehow the part about positive energy goes unnoticed. The truth is, positive thinking has to match up with positive energy for things to manifest.
A Wealth of Energy.
The most important thing to know, is that energy lives inside of you and you are in control of it. What more can you ask for when it comes down to free energy? As your positive energy increases, so does your positive thinking and your happiness.
Anything opposite of this will decrease your energy. Think about how your thoughts affect your being and emotional state. Feeling weak and tired goes in hand with worry and fear. And since worry doesn’t get you anywhere, there’s really no need for it to take place. It’s easier said than done, believe me, I know. But the more you take control, the better the outcome will be.
Being consumed with negativity is not only depressing but it’s also draining. This is how your energy is affected and it becomes a distraction to the manifestation of the things that you want and desire.
The more positive energy you attain, the more positive results you will receive. It’s just that simple. Why do you think negative people are so unhappy? Their energy is almost on empty and they are not attracting what they want.
As the saying goes, “misery loves company” and this is why negative people will try to rub that same energy off on those who have increased energy. The more positive energy you draw in, the more you can see manifestation on a higher level.
It may be a struggle at times to keep your thoughts positive, but this only means you are lacking energy. Remember the more energy you have, the faster your ability to manifest. The concept is interesting because it teaches us to be positive on a continuous basis. You attract what you are and you get what you give.
Low energy will bring slow results or now results at all. It all makes perfect sense. For instance, let’s say you have a home based business and you aren’t putting into as much as you should. Obviously you aren’t going to see the results you want because your energy low.
As time goes on you start to feel as if nothing is working (which is negative) and you throw your hands up or throw in the towel. Instead of shifting your negative thoughts, you allowed them to control the outcome. This is why positive energy works.
It’s not a secret, it’s a natural thing that we are in control of and if you don’t take the time to increase it, you will miss out. Your efforts for getting the results you want and finding your own path so to speak, will make all the difference in your manifestation.
