Do you have trouble getting up and getting started for the day? Is motivation one of the things that the at-home business model appealed to you initially but now you find yourself stuck in your PJ’s for hours and you end up taking your shower around 1 p.m.? You can be your own best cheerleader and your own best motivator. We really can’t rely on others to get us up and going each day.
One thing I have found helpful is to get a set of pompoms, even at a toy or party supply store, and put them near the bathroom mirror or the dressing table or wherever you go each morning to get dressed. It’s important to get motivated and off to a great start each day. We are our own best cheerleaders and sometimes we need a tangible reminder of that fact!
“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing; that’s why we recommend it daily.” Zig Ziglar
Put your best self forward for each event and always remember: You never get a second chance to make that first impression.
And please know, all you have to do is SMILE! It amazes me that I see so many gloomy Gusses at meetings. You can tell they are having a bad day; a bad client experience; trouble at home…Oh my goodness, this would have been a GOOD day to forego that networking agenda.
