Who are your biggest motivators? Who are they? Let’s walk through some of them.

Haters. Haters to me can be your biggest motivators. Maybe it’s clients that don’t book you. There is nothing wrong with that. Let’s examine this deeper.  

When someone talks bad about you or doesn’t choose your product or service, what does their action do?  It causes a reaction in you…or it should. With me personally it causes a guttural reaction in who I am. Clients who don’t book you should cause you to really jump in and decide. Decide what?  What you can do to get better, of course. Maybe you have past friends from your life. They can be motivators because there was a falling out of some sort. This causes you to want to do better. Competition can also be your biggest motivator.

I know for me if I feel like someone is on my heels in business then I better get moving.

People that comment on grammar online can be a hater from that standpoint. People will disagree strongly with you. If someone has a problem with you or a problem with what you did online or something I would encourage you to reach out to them, thank them for bringing it to your attention and see if you can work together towards a solution to the problem.  

All this being said, people still need to help themselves. If you find yourself hating on someone, do this. Pause. Think. Be. Pause to give you time to stop what it is you are doing and be present with this emotion. Think. Why are you hating? Be. Maybe it’s time to look in the mirror and take responsibility for really the only true thing you can control. Your actions.
