    Where do you guys find the motivation to work hard on your business?

    My motivation is that I keep telling myself that this will one day be a multi thousand dollar company. I also find inspiration by reading business success stories.

    How/where do you find motivation?

    I get my motivation from seeing other people thrive in what I do. Also, I like being able to buy my family whatever they want. That's a huge motivator.

    I get my motivation from other successful businessman, seeing their business getting into success with their hard work etc.. it really makes me want to work even harder and more to be like them in a few years.

    I get motivation from visualising my end goal and imagining my daily life once I have reached that goal, I also have a lot of poor family over seas who I only have to think of, or call to realise how many oppertunities I have and how little there is to moan about, kinda puts things in perspective.
    Also I try to surround myself with successfull marketers and seeing them do well makes me want to push myself even harder

    I will meet those more energetic friends, reading motivation book, and take part on outdoor activity and watch comedy at cinema. This is law of attraction, when I approach with more positive item, it will automatically remove those negative feeling.

    I get motivation by reading about people that started out with nothing and are now multi-millionaires. I always tell myself, If they were able to get to where they are given where they started, I have no excuse.

    As most fellow members have mentioned, Success stories is a great motivational tool. But above all, I examine my passion. If you don't have a passionate sense of purpose for your business idea, then you must re-assess the whole thing. Success is a long marathon, and only passion will keep you going till the finish line.

    My motivation is that I am working for my wife and children’s better future! I love the feeling when my wife asks me something and I am able to provide ... It’s my biggest achievement and Motivation!

    It's weird but I get motivated every time I have failed to something. Though positive things do make me motivated, I am just getting thrilled whenever I commit failure. Because for me it means that there are still some room for improvements.

    motivation has to come from within.

    I listen to personal development audio a lot and read good books.

    I am on a news and negative media fast of sorts as well.

    Motivation should come from your inner soul. Yes i am talking about self-motivation. This is what helps you to bring success in your business and life.

    I personally find someone that has had success before me, and maybe print out something of theirs to show me that it can be done, and when it is done it pays off. I am starting to workout, so now I have a paper of someone who did the same thing I am doing and had great success, so I keep pushing forward hoping for the same results.
