How to Revive the Passion for Your Business

The passion for your business is an amazing feeling. As many entrepreneurs will tell you, starting your own business and seeing it expand may be one of the most exhilarating and demanding endeavors of your life. There’s such a rewarding feeling in seeing how your very own creation not only made it out there in the world but also brings utility to the people around while paying for your rent and vacations.

How to Revive the Passion for Your Business

Each entrepreneur will, at some point, reach a plateau when the passion starts to fade. It may initially be barely noticeable, but it will turn into a full-blown challenge as soon as your business hits its first major roadblock. Fortunately, not all is lost, since there are ways that can help you get that  spark back and inject your business with vitality:

1. Get Rid of the Guilt and Revive the Passion for your Business

Apart from the technical issues you may be dealing with within your business, guilt is the biggest and most dangerous setback you can actually face. When business isn’t working, many entrepreneurs out there will feel they have failed themselves, the dream they believed in so much, as well as the employees they have working for them. Having said this, these feelings of guilt will often keep you from taking action when you need it the most. So train yourself to become alert and stop this negative thinking loop, so that a new behavior of positive thinking can take its place. As soon as more positive thoughts start coming to mind, you’ll feel more and more inspired to take action for your ailing business.

2. Allow Yourself to be Mentored

Regardless if you’re seeking the help of a professional or the help of a successful industry peer, it’s important to acknowledge that asking for help stems from and nurtures great inner power. On the one hand, a professional mentor or business coach will have all the necessary know-how and techniques that can help you pinpoint your negative thinking patterns and reconfigure your brain. On the other hand, an industry peer you look up to will have specific insights on your type of business and may counsel you according to your particular business needs. All you would need to do is to ask them out for coffee and honestly address your struggles, so they can truly open up to you too.

3. Spice Up Your Mornings

If you’ve been used to doing things the same way every morning, you can’t really expect different results to show up in your business. It’s often underestimated how big an impact morning routine has on an entrepreneur’s entire day. The first hours of the day should be used to create intentionality and vision for what’s ahead. This is why it’s worth starting your day with a walk in the park or by meditating. To the same extent, you can also try journaling – there is a great power of words you’ll experience as soon as this becomes a part of your daily routine.  

4. Befriend Innovation and Revive the Passion in your Business

Innovation, or lack thereof, goes hand in hand with a person’s ability and willingness to remove themselves from their comfort zone and allow for risk to enter their lives. Of course, this goes the same for you as an entrepreneur – you need to start asking distressing and harsh questions that will allow you to see what can be improved in your business. Think if there’s maybe an area of your business that could do with a fresh approach or if there’s perhaps one novel method you’ve always shied away from implementing yourself. Now is the time to be honest and start acting on the answers you’ll give yourself – they hold all the directions you need in order to revitalize your business.

5. Acquire More Knowledge

If there’s one thing an entrepreneur will never be in short supply of is knowledge. There’s always more information you can acquire and bring back into your business to help it stand on its own two feet and even flourish. Sadly, many entrepreneurs come at a loss when it comes to basic financial and marketing information, for example, among other areas their business can benefit from, regardless of the industry it operates in. This is why it’s important that, as an entrepreneur, you take time aside and invest in furthering your education.

When all is said and done, running a business from the ground up is definitely not for the weak of heart. To this end, it’s especially difficult to make it work and then see it flounder. However, the beautiful part is that you have the power to bring its life back and rekindle the passion for your business yourself – all you need to do is focus on yourself, remove limiting beliefs and dare to risk once again.

Power of Consistency: A key that opens all doors

Wouldn’t it be just wonderful if you could find a single solution to everything in the world?

A dynamic solution like that would of course come with a catch.

Because the answer is “Consistency”. And the catch is that, consistency always comes with “persistence” sashaying on its left arm. The two are inseparable. And tethering on a thin chord not too far behind this power couple, is the little boy wonder we all want – success.

Too much of an analogy? Nevertheless, here are some examples that will prove the formula works everywhere – be it in matters of the heart, sports, professional success, war or great life changing discoveries.

1. Refusing to give up

Hrithik Roshan, the Bollywood actor, launched his own brand- HRX. The brand, a personification of the man himself – a man determined to push himself to his extremes. Being born into an affluent family didn’t make the journey to being one of the top actors in Bollywood easy. From overcoming speech problems as a child to proving his doctors wrong when they diagnosed him with scoliosis and predicted he could never become an actor, Hrithik Roshan has crossed every wall life put in his way, reducing it to nothing more than a speed bump.

After all, this is the man who as a child practiced for 36 hours just to be able to explain to his cook exactly what he wanted to eat. And even today, in the midst of all his success, he still practices every day.

Consistency is not perfection. It is simply refusing to give up.

2. Fitness

If you are a fitness freak, you already know this. If you are not, then you should know, that running for 2 hours a day and then not running for the next 2 weeks will result in nothing but sore muscles. Sporadic spurts of rigorous exercise is strenuous for the body. Instead a steady but consistent increase in intensity will more likely give you better results. “Long term consistency trumps short term intensity” said Bruce lee, world renowned martial artist and action film actor. “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”

A consistent workout routine also improves your mental health as endorphins released by the body as a result of regular workouts will enhance your mood and let you experience positive feelings.

3. Love

In any relationship, consistency is key. If you want to win over that girl, be consistent in your efforts, so that she takes you seriously. Lack of consistency could be seen as lack of interest. A man who is consistency will never have to complain about loyalty.

If you are a parent, then you know how the consistent presence and love of your parents (or lack of it) influenced you.

4. War: Consistency and the human mind

Robert E. Cialdini, in his book ‘Influence: the psychology of persuasion’ tells that, once we have made a choice or taken a stand, we have a “nearly obsessive desire to be (and to appear) consistent with that commitment.”

A surprising example of this was seen in the Korean wars when prisoners of war from the United States gave away military secrets, informed on fellow prisoners and even publicly denounced their country, without being beaten or threatened. The prisoners were made to state mild anti-American statements, like the “United States is not perfect.”

The critical step was that they were made to write it down, preventing them from denying the statement on a later occasion, thereby forcing them to corroborate the same. Thus, using these mild remarks the prisoners were then pushed to expand on ways in which this statement was true.

Not wanting to be inconsistent they complied. To remain further consistent, they would agree to read their statements aloud in a discussion group and later maybe even record it as an anti-America radio broadcast. This then kept escalating until they completely change their self-image, not wanting to appear inconsistent.

5. Business: Branding and loyalty

The ultimate objective for any company is consumer loyalty. A consistent presence in terms of visuals as well as messages, will improve the top of mind recall for the consumer.

This is because, through repeated visibility and consistent presence, the brand and it’s product moves to the permanent memory of the consumer. And like in the previous example, if the consumer admits to himself and to another at some point that he prefers one brand over another, they continue to be loyal to the brand,  if only to stay true to their statement. Without brand consistency, customers will lose sight of the message you are trying to portray and vital trust in your business.

However, companies also need to be consistent with their services. No one wants to deal with a company they can’t rely on for consistency. With so many industries being saturated with competitors, inconsistency is often enough of a reason for consumers to take their business elsewhere.

If you are persistent you will get it. If you are consistent you will keep it. This is a principle that applies everywhere. Consistency shows value in whatever you’re chasing.

“Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hardwork gains success. Greatness will come.”  ~ Dwayne “the rock” Johnson
