“As entrepreneurs, we’re supposed to come up with creative factors that lead to progress and then success. We are sometimes working so hard that we end up with setbacks along the way because of uncalled for situations and bad deals” says Kirsty Pennal, managing director of Stag Group. Setbacks come with the everyday life of an entrepreneur. Sometimes things aren’t going our way, and perhaps there is the occasional mishap! This happens all the time, but also this is where creativity is a huge part of the process. Our minds as entrepreneurs need to be wired to be able to bring that forward and utilize it to our advantage. “With the right amount of balance, we can create our own inspiration and build our effort through that,” says Kirsty Pennal of Stag Group. Once inspiration strikes, it’s hard to miss it. It could be while watching your favorite footballer play or someone you care about accomplishes their goal. These are types of inspiration that happen and make us want to make our own achievements.
The first thing to do when you’re trying to become inspired and get out of a rut is to remove whatever is causing any bad vibes, for example, if you work at a current job and you have not received any kind of positive feedback for your efforts. That’s something that is mainly drawing your inspiration away. Inspiration comes from being motivated to accomplish something. It’s a drive and goal that thrills you — find what makes you want to feel driven and you will be inspired.
Find Your “Thing”
What are you most passionate about? “What’s one thing that makes you want to get up in the morning, and you look forward to it? Use this as a guide to see what drives you forward. This is something that will energize you and keep you focused on achieving what you love,” says Kirsty Pennal of Stag Group.
Working hard is just as important. Once you’re inspired make sure that you’re putting in the effort to get what you want. If you have an idea? Act upon it and see where it takes you. Studies show that individuals/humans are the most positive when they are productive. Use that as a guide to help you and start by taking care of yourself and your goals. This is the most critical factor to working hard and achieving your goals.
