    How do you motivate yourself?

    I get sometimes bored with the whole marketing stuff. When you hit the "dry season" with sales, how do you get yourself motivated?

    I know what you mean.. But I motivate myself by keep going - not thinking about the result.

    Just keep on working - bookmark your website, try to create more backlinks, keep spreading a word about your website, and most importantly - try to learn new marketing tricks.

    i like to see historical movies and read books , these useful to learn from our and others mistakes and repeated the holocaust, we study about what has happened in the past, we always look at important figures, important events, important groups, ideas, and movements.

    When I think about all of the results other people and I myself have gotten throughout my life via hard work with anything I have ever done and not just IM, it motivates me to work hard because I can clearly see how valuable it is.

    Money, Freedom and sense of accomplishment. Prior to going into IM full time I was an electrician. A job I had grown to hate with a passion. Knowing I have an amazing amount of freedom and earning good money it what keeps me motivated!

    I understand about what you're talking. Everyone of us sometimes get bored of everything, not talking about job)
    I just put new goal and it motivates me. Maybe it is not so high as the last goal, but it keeps me going on.

    IM is a lot of trial and error and it can become very frustrating...

    Set some goals, make sure your efforts have a purpose and think out of the box every now and again. Motivation will come.
    Think about the fact if what you've been doing every day has taken you any closer to where you want to be in this business. If it hasn't...it might be time to change strategies.
    SEO, dedication and motivation only won't cut it to become anywhere near successful though...

    In times of low motivation it helps to read some interviews from other successful people, not necessarily from IM either. Also, browsing through some materialistic things you may wish to own some day can also renew your vigor.

    I'd say money, but that's actually not a very good motivator, can leave you depressed and empty. Setting goals is a great way though, because personally when I lay my head down at night I want to feel like I did everything I could that day to further my business. As IM is a business, it really is and should be seen and treated like one. Another goal I have is to learn something new every day, so with these things in mind it helps in keeping the focus and pushing forward. The most powerful motivator could also be family, succeeding for them.

    That's normal in marketing. There's what we call business cycle. In a business cycle, there are ups and downs. Maybe the best motivation you can get if you go through the downs in business is to keep in mind that it's just a passing stage. As long as you stay consistent in your efforts, you will get through the storms.
