Today marks the end of my five motivation series. Please leave me a comment on whether or not you’ve found any value in this series.
The one quote that keeps my going every day says; “When God pushes you to the edge of difficulty trust him fully because two things can happen either He’ll catch you when you fall, or teach you how to fly.”
The last few years have been a challenge for me, both personally and professionally. I’ve had a few jobs working for different companies. The last two, I thought were going to be my last ones until I retired. God has a quirky sense of humor.
These last few years are not what I had planned for my life. Trying to find anything positive from it all gets hard.
Trying to break out into freelance work has been difficult for me. Either I haven’t found the right niche, or I lack the experience that certain companies want.
Sometimes I feel like giving up on my dreams, other times I push myself to keep trying. One day. One day it will happen for me.
May you have all your dreams come true and stay MOTIVATED to keep moving forward .

If you’re and entrepreneur then you probably already have a DMO (Daily Method Of Operation ). Every successful person either in business, or entrepreneurship tells me they us a daily method of operations.
Five things I found to be very effective and they are easy enough that anyone can use them. These simple steps will help you to obtain the level of success once you apply them into your daily routine.
Personal Development — Having a POSITIVEmental attitude changes the way we think as a leader or an entrepreneur; which in turn leads to change for success. With so many ways to grab information no one can make the excuse that they don’t have time to do this.
Meditation and Exercise — Spend at least 15 minutes a day meditating on scriptures, a quick go to encouragement pocket book. Exercise daily to increase your body,mind and spirit. Exercising opens up the mind and make entrepreneurs get their creative juices flowing. Personally I find Pilates very relaxing and it works my abs off.
Sharing — Share your business opportunity with at least 10 new people or at the bare minimum 5 people to start building relationships and trust with. Make this a quick less than 2 minute introduction and ask them if they’re interested in watch a video, listening to a CD, Podcast or by whatever tools you can get in front of them within the a few days.
Creating Content — Create content people will want to read, look at and become interested in. Social media can work to your advantage. Learn how to leverage the time you spend on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, LinkedIn and whatever other social outlet you’re using.
