Sustaining motivation on a long and difficult trek, whether literal or metaphysical, is always going to pose a challenge. So how do you keep your motivation tank full?
There isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution, but luckily there are many methods to help push you forward. For some, following a routine helps. Having muscle memory take over parts of your day will help you conserve your mental reserve for the more demanding tasks. Other people find that tying whatever you’re doing to a personal mission statement or profound sense of purpose helps drives you.
Such is the case with Mark Zuckerberg. The Facebook CEO possesses a clear sense of purpose, saying, “My hope was never to build a company. I was driven by a sense of purpose to connect people and bring us closer together.” His sentiment of having a larger purpose appears to be the case for so many successful entrepreneurs and business leaders, who have all needed to reach into their motivational reserves during their wildly successful careers.
