What is motivation?

Motivation is an external or internal stimulus which results in improved or refocused determination to complete a goal or task.

Some examples of motivation include:

– Listening to music.

– Reading an inspiring book.
– Watching an inspiring movie (ex. Rudy).
– Watching an inspiring YouTube video.
– Participating in a competition.

– Hiking in nature.

– Completing a workout session.

– Getting advice from those who care for you.

– Practicing meditation and destressing your mind.

– Comparing to a similar experience (ex. If you were cut by your basketball team, feel reassured you can still be successful since Michael Jordan was cut from his high school team).


Are all entrepreneurs successful with their first business?

No, all entrepreneurs must accept the possibility of failure.  

Entrepreneurship is similar to any activity such as playing sports. 

Let’s say you want to be a professional baseball player. 

Do you think tomorrow you will be signed by a major league team? No! 

You will spend years practicing your baseball skills and playing amateur games before you are even considered by a team. 

In entrepreneurship, you may spend years practicing your entrepreneurial skills and creating businesses before you find success. That is why it helps to start building businesses as a kid since you will gain years of experience. 

Do not be discouraged by your failures. Analyze what went wrong in your business and what should be improved.

Your experiences will over time make you into a master of entrepreneurship.
