How to Stay Motivated & Focused When it Feels Hard

110 How to Stay Motivated & Focused When It Feels Hard The Kelly Trach Show Podcast.jpg

20 seconds of insane courage is all you need.


Let’s face it, you’re not always going to be giving 110%—hell, even if you wanted to, your body and brain have limits. It’s hard to balance deadlines, meetings and you time without feeling drained or motivation at SOME point, so when that blow to your drive does come, it’s handy to have a clear series of steps to follow that will get you back on your mental feet and pumped up again to do the work that will take you to the next level.

In the next hour, I talk about why you shouldn’t feel ashamed about resting and recuperating, help you figure out what’s causing your lack of motivation, and give you some pro tips for making your schedule as jam-packed and exciting as possible.

In this episode, you'll learn:

- Pause every once in a while and don't feel guilty about taking a break.

- Running your own business will not always be a fairy tale.

- Figure out if you're unmotivated or if you're just scared of the next step.

- Turn accountability into a key part of your goals.

- Make psyching yourself up part of your daily schedule and work toward fun time.
