7 Questions to Self-Check Your Motivation in Your Business

June 04, 2010 By: Yvonne A Jones Category: Business - Entrepreneur, Business - Home-Based Business, Mindset

It is so easy to get accustomed to going with the flow so that it becomes harder to stop and ask yourself searching questions.  To assist you in determining what motivates you in your online business, here are seven questions I will encourage you to ask yourself.  I tried to be honest with myself when I did my check-up and was a little surprised at my own answers to some of these questions.

1)  Are you channeling an interest, a hobby, or area of expertise into an online business?

2)  What skills, training and strengths do you have professionally that may give you a headstart in starting your online business?

3) Do you believe that to succeed in your online  business it will take hard work?

4) Do you desire the freedom to make your own decisions and enjoy flexibility while working from home?

5) Do you have the discipline to set a schedule and stick to it?

6) Is your determination strong enough to prevail against disappointments and discouragements that will inevitably arise in your business?

7) Are you ready to stop trading hours for dollars so you can earn an income even when you’re on vacation? And are you willing to do what it takes?

Bonus question:

8) Do you believe that it’s harder going it alone and that it’s important to build your support group – your peers and a Mentor?

I’d like to  encourage you to change ‘you’ to ‘I’ so that you take ownership and really get to the root of your motivation.

  2. Hi Henry,

    You know, you could re-purpose your response in a post as this is really fantastic information you shared about yourself and I can hear the passion in your voice in answer to question 7. I can totally relate to the need for financial freedom. Having support certainly takes away some of the isolation, and that topic happens to be one that I will be writing a post on this week.

    Thank you for visiting and sharing your thoughts.
