What Is Your Passion?

This is a simple question, but how often is it actually answered or acted upon.

Think about the first job you acquired in your younger years. Did you have a driving

passion for this job or was it just a means to earn a living to pay the bills?

Where do you stand with your network marketing, affiliate or mlm? Are you with a

company that is not aligned with your passion for life?

Now is the time take a pen and pad and start writing.

Your passion…

Your plan for obtaining that passion…

Most importantly, why you will see it through the ups and downs.



What Keeps You Motivated With Your Home Business ?

Can you recall what got you started with your MLM,Network Marketing, Internet Marketing or Home Business Enterprise?

What was your BIG why?

The important thing to remember when starting out in this amazing industry is that starting up your own enterprise in whatever form, will take time. Unlike a 9 to 5 job where you go to work, come home and get paid regardless of your performance. The same rules do not apply in the Home Business arena.

You will need to find a way to:

  • advertise your business
  • generate leads from the advertising that you do
  • match the wants of your customer with your solution
  • follow up with after care customer service
  • recruit mentors and team members to help you
  • keep up the administration
  • and much more…

It sounds like a lot of work and it is, especially if things do not go your way.  So after the initial honeymoon period is over is it surprising that so many entrepreneurs quit and go right back to a 9 to 5 job and remain in this zone until retirement.

So if you are not motivated and your Why for “doing it in the first place” is not strong, why did you start at all?

On the other hand if you believe in what you are doing and can see where you are going and have a clear destination in mind, half the battle has been won. The other half will be completed through planning, help from others and most importantly your own action.

So What Keeps You Motivated With Your Home Business ? A powerful tool I have used over the past few years is listening to live conference calls and personal development recordings over and over again.

  • Each time I listen to inspiring words, this regenerates my enthusiasm and keeps me going.
  • Each time I listen to a live conference call I am excited when I learn something new.
  • Each time I apply something that I have learned and it works that is a great feeling.

In a world where so much focus is on doom and gloom it is imperative to fill your mind with positive thoughts and seek out mentors who will help you to achieve your goals and dreams.

Remember what keeps you motivated and your why, in tough times these will help to give you strength.
