What Gets You Up?

You wake up every morning.  What gets you up?  Are you doing what you love at the moment?  Is that your driving force or do you just get up and do a job every day?
If there was one thing you could do what would it be?

Here are 5 tips to get you started:

Do what you love
What’s the one thing you love? What do you enjoy doing?  Could you do it even if money was not a question?

It will take time
Don’t think you will be an overnight success.  Doing what you love takes time.  It takes time to build a craft or business.

How badly do you want it?
Are you willing to work over weekends and late at night?  Are you willing to cut out a personal life until success is coming your way?  It’s going to take a great deal of dedication and focus to get on the right track and stay there.

Avoid negative comments
People might dissuade you from doing what you love.  Some of those people might be your friends and family.  You need to hold on to that dream and that love for what you want to do. If those negative comments make you stop imagine if you hit a huge roadblock in your career, how will you handle it?

Surround yourself with positive people
At the start it is important to surround yourself with positive people and thoughts.  So make sure you have a close team that support you.  Meet weekly with some friends that can help you along the way.  A brains trust if you will.  Have breakfast together and inspire each other.

These tips will help you on your way to success.
