I’ve never been a fan of body building.

Heck, I think I went to a gym for two months when I was in college and that was it.

I mean, I’m a long distance runner.

We’re not even supposed to develop huge bodies to run marathons but let’s get to the point already.

If you’re wondering why the heck are you reading a headline with the name Arnold Schwarzenegger is because I was reading Dan Sumner’s book “Marketing Through My Eyes” and he was saying that we need to stay motivated or else, our business will suffer.

Check this excerpt from his free book:

“A marketers lifestyle allows you to do basically what you want when you want and how you want to.

Now don’t get me wrong here, you do need to work to earn your crust but you can do it when you want to and at which time you want to.

I have been known to work all night and spend the whole day doing what I want to do.

The bottom line is you have freedom.

But with freedom and self employment comes the need for motivation and if you are not  motivated your business will suffer.” ~ Dan Sumner

I’m just like everybody else.

I have ups and lows and sometimes I fantasize about throwing the towel and getting some rest but as soon as I picture myself being bossed around and feeling miserable again, motivation suddenly strikes back!

Personal Reinforcement

I found this video inside a personal reinforcement site (aff link) that talks about:

  • Confidence
  • Creativity
  • Leadership
  • Motivation
  • Personal Development
  • Time Management
  • Focus
  • Organization
  • And many other topics
I think I’m going to write a review on this program very soon but I’m barely starting it so you may have to wait for that. ;-)


How do you motivate yourself?

Any books you recommend, YouTube videos, any particular motivational coaches or even movies?

I normally find a lot of relaxation and motivation when I go running but I haven’t had the time for it, I think I’m actually going to tell you a bit more about this on the next article.

Thanks for reading/watching and hope you have an amazing day today my friend!
