Do you ever have trouble getting started on something? Or perhaps you get stuck in the process of a project and don’t know what to do next. I have had plenty of those moments and they still pop up for me. A client of mine mentioned this happens for her as well and she went on to ask, “how do you snowball your motivation once you do get going?” It can be tough to keep the momentum going when you run into a road block which is inevitable. One way is to reframe the idea of problems as challenges that are part of the process you are going through. They are the workout you need to become the bigger stronger person you need to be so you can have a greater impact in this world. Also I love the quote that says, “every problem is an opportunity in disguise.” If you choose to look at your problems this way, which is what successful people do the entire paradigm shifts. It’s not always easy as life can have it’s ups and downs, it is worth it though.
When it comes to business successful entrepreneurs take on an experimental mindset and test their ideas. They do not see things as right/wrong, they test the market/their customers to get feedback and then refine their ideas. Most people get tripped up in business because they are doing it to meet their needs vs. their clients’ needs. It’s true many businesses start with the founder scratching their own itch and the ones that go on to become profitable also make sure to come up with solutions for their customers. They find out the answers by reframing the problems they are up against as experiments and they test them to get real life feedback and information. In the video I talk about three simple questions my friend, a successful entrepreneur who sold his business, asks himself when getting started each day and when he gets stuck.

Those are the questions above! What do you think. Are you willing to try it out when you get stuck? If you find it useful or not send me some feedback so I know 🙂
