During the week I watched a clip of a lady called Mel Robbins talking to a conference in San Francisco about how to get what you want.
I touched on motivation last week and in the video Mel talks about how as children we have parents to make us do the things we don’t want to do but need to, but that as adults we have to fulfil that role ourselves … for ourselves.
This is the same in business. When you’re employed you have a boss to make you do the things you don’t want to do but need to be done, but when you’re self-employed no-one is looking over your shoulder and you can get away with doing what you want, or not doing what you don’t want.
The video is 21 minutes long but definitely worth a watch if you can find the time – it might just help you think about how you can motivate and make yourself do the things you know you need to but don’t necessarily want to (in business or in life).
P.S. The F word isn’t what you think ;-)
