The Secret to Motivation

Let me be tough on you for a minute.  Do me a favor:  stop looking for your sponsor, company, or some motivational speaker to motivate you.  How about you look in the mirror and motivate yourself?

How about the fact that you have to leave to go to a job every day and you’d rather be home with your kids and spouse?  As an adult, you have to do things like that.  Things you don’t want to do because you have responsibilities.

You make decisions and do things because you want to take care of your family and build a better future.  So here’s the million-dollar question…

If you do that in a job you don’t like, where people don’t take care of you, and will dump you in a second, why won’t you do that in your business?

Please.  Start treating this thing with the respect it deserves instead of waiting like a child for someone to motivate you all the time.  Fair enough?

  1. I was just sitting in my backyard enjoying a cigar after watching for tornado warnings all night. I made a decision to just get out there and talk to everybody about my business and its opportunity….then I read your post….Perfect Timing!


  2. Wow, Randy! This is the best. Thanks alot. I will always motivate myself and encourage my team members to do so.

  3. Point taken – LOL – Not laughing at you – but I’ve been asking myself the same question. You are great Randy! Thank’s.

  4. Well said. Having your own business could be the most rewarding thing you can ever experience. There are a lot of options such as small time franchising, network marketing, etc. As mentioned, it only takes proper motivation. Nice post!

  5. Hey Randy

    About looking in rhe mirror, here is a nice poem:

    “I look in the mirror
    And what do I see?
    A strange looking person
    That cannot be me.

    For I am much younger
    And not nearly so fat
    As that face in the mirror
    I am looking at.

    Oh, where are the mirrors
    That I used to know
    Like the ones which were
    Made thirty years ago?

    Now all things have changed
    And I`m sure you`ll agree
    Mirrors are not as good
    As they used to be.

    So never be concerned,
    If wrinkles appear
    For one thing I`ve learned
    Which is very clear,

    Should your complexion
    Be less than perfection,
    It is really the mirror
    That needs correction!!”

    Edmund Burke, 1729 – 1797, Irish Philosopher.

    Great Message Randy.

    While others may inspire us, WE are responsible for Motivating ourselves each day to do the things we need to do, in order to have the time freedom, money etc. we desire to have.

  7. Oh boy! This one is a huge! This is just one of those ‘life lesson’ points that gets shoved under the rug too many times. Thanks Randy, for reminding us that we are the masters of OUR universe!

  8. I as well make art quilts from trash. there may be a particular brand of potato chips (Miss Vicky’s) right here in Canada that features a really wonderful bag.
    I have manufactured quite a few smaller wall quilts working with these bags.
    I commission my grandchildren to consume the chips for me.
    I would send you a image of a single of them when you would give me your e-mail
    address. Cheers, Eileen
