Finding your querencia (and getting your business mojo back)



It's relentless being a business owner. And then there's crazy people like me who decide to run three businesses simultaneously (thecreativecollective.com.au, thetrainingcollective.com.au and awardshub.com), and have 2 kids, and write a book (nokidding.com.au) and do a heap of speaking and promotion around that. 

It's all fun and games... until your mojo starts running a bit low. And when you're the captain of a decently sized ship, the journey must continue. But how do you go on if you're running low on fuel. How do you rally the troops when you could do with a little rallying yourself?

Yes I'm being blatantly honest and sharing that even I have low vibe days, and sometimes feel like I've lost my mojo.

But what's important to discuss here is not about losing it, but how to get it back, and quick! 

Everybody is different and that's what makes the world such a wonderful place.

But I figure if I share what works for me, it might be helpful to you if you find yourself in the same predicament. So here's six things that tend to work for me when my feet are dragging:

1. Go search some motivational quotes on the internet or on Pinterest - whether you've used it before or not, do yourself a favour and head over to pinterest. Type into the search bar 'quotes' or 'motivational quotes' or any other combinations of keywords and scroll through until you find a quote which resonates with you. Look at it. Stare at it. Make it your screensaver or wallpaper. Share it. Just connect with it. Or, create your own! I love using Wordswag or Over to make mine on my iPhone. Sometimes getting the creative juices going is therapy in itself. Read More
