You might even be surprised by #5 but believe us, it's important in order to stay in the game.

We've put together our top 5 favorite ways to motivate and prioritize your day. 

1) Focus on the Future, but Don't Live There: It's great and even crucial to have a vision the size of the ocean but scale back and work the process. Success takes time and it's important to see the big picture and then get to work. Working towards the end goal daily will bring about the success, time freedom and financial freedom that is within grasp.

2) Control Your Thoughts: Focus on the positive and don't dwell on the negative. There will always be naysayers but it takes a strong person to shrug it off and just keep going. Look up and out not in and down!

3) Know Your WHY: Create a vision board and go back to it when you've had a hard day. It'll remind you why you do what you do. In every entrepreneur, there's that burning desire. What's yours?

4) Spend Time on What Matters: Spend a few moments preparing what needs to be done for the day and assess what can be delegated to other team members and what needs your specific attention. Having a list to work from will help you stay on task and focused.

5) The secret to Living is Giving: One of the best things you can do for yourself is unplug after a long day. Do something that fills you up and unwind from any stress. Give a bit of yourself and you'll be pleasantly surprised by the return you receive.
