John Kim Syncis, the co-founder and co-chairman of Syncis, is a South Korea native who has spent decades building a name for himself. In addition to Syncis, John Kim worked on several other entrepreneurial endeavors along his path to success. Staying motivated through the trials of business, as Mr. Kim did, isn’t easy, but the rewards can include financial freedom, early retirement and personal happiness. If you’re having trouble staying motivated for your business endeavors, use the following tips to stay on track:
- Work as though you only have one dollar to your name. Instead of thinking that you’ll be okay if you don’t make as much money as possible, motivate yourself by pretending that your financial wellbeing depends on each day of work. When you think about your future and your retirement, this isn’t so far from the truth.
- Don’t waste time. The modern world is full of time-wasting websites and applications, but that doesn’t mean your life needs to be. Eliminate time wasters from your life, deal with the week or two of missing them and then put your extra time toward furthering your business.
- Change your perspective. If you stop looking at furthering your business as work, and instead view it as a hobby, it becomes easier to stay motived. A profitable hobby is much more fun than a boring business. Just be sure to take your “hobby” seriously, despite your change of mindset.
Another tip that might help you stay motivated is to look at successful businessmen and their operations for inspiration. For example, look to John Kim Syncis and his success with Syncis or even Steve Jobs and his success with Apple, and then envision yourself succeeding as they did.
