It’s amazing how “fluid” motivation can be. One minute, you’re pumped and ready to dominate every challenge on your path, and the next minute, you’re demotivated, discouraged, and feeling like you just want to lay down and watch TV. It comes and goes. As aspiring entrepreneurs, we need to do whatever we can to keep that motivation around as long as possible. It’s easier for some than others.
How do we create motivation? There’s probably no easy answer to that, but one thing that has always motivated me (and I’ve probably mentioned this several times before) is the success story. There’s something compelling about reading a real-life story or interview about how someone has overcome failure or some other obstacle to ultimately find success. It somehow lights the fire in you and gets your motivational juices flowing (at least, it does so for me).
With that in mind, there’s a success story I came across on the internet recently that I want to share with you, in case you haven’t seen it already.
