Duco Global Ltd: 5 tips to self motivate
1. Listen to Motivational speakers, find quotes and watch motivational films.
At Duco Global Ltd positive quotes, books and inspirational films are a huge part of maintaining drive, passion and ambition, all essential when trying to reach a goal. The Managing Director says “We particularly like listening to success stories and entrepreneurs speeches at seminars/events or even online. It really gives you an idea of what is there to be achieved".
2. Surround yourself with positive people who are supportive and/or have similar goals.
Positivity is infectious and it goes without saying that a person is more likely to be positive if those around him/her are also positive. As the phrase goes, ‘You are a product of your environment’
3. Set long term and short term goals so you can measure your progress.
It is highly unlikely that an inexperienced runner will win a marathon after just a day of training. It is more likely that the runner will set smaller, more manageable goals in the lead up to the big event. At Duco Global Ltd, this is something we also use with business goals. Setting smaller milestones along the journey will remind you just how far you have come since you started training/working/
4. Remember WHY you are doing this!
Remember the reason you are doing this in the first place. Do you want to secure a comfortable future for yourself and your family? Retire young? Go on that trip of a lifetime or be the next Richard Branson/Alan Sugar? Whatever your reason for setting your goal, make sure you remind yourself of what will come of all the hard work and commitment, particularly when times get tough. This should drive you through.
5. Read the success stories of others- if they can do it why can’t you?
Duco Global Ltd takes a great interest in the stories and experiences of fellow entrepreneurs from all over the world. You will find that many entrepreneurs come from humble backgrounds. By reading these stories you can not only find entrepreneurs that you can relate to, but also remind yourself that many of them have achieved what they have now through a simple idea, hard work and determination. They, like everyone else have had to overcome obstacles to get where they are today; the difference is how they dealt with these obstacles. If they could do it then why can’t you?
