Finding motivation during difficult times can feel out of reach. A beauty business is a busy business to be in, but it’s essential to persevere and keep moving forward. Finding motivation in your beauty business doesn’t need to be a chore. We have listed a few quick ways to get back on track without losing your mind or business flow.
More Naturals aims to be your private-label beauty and cosmetic product partner. We manufacture and distribute beauty and wellness products wholesale for makeup, beauty, and personal care brands, cosmetics for hotels, and more. Because we have helped many entrepreneurs and business owners throughout their beauty adventures, we have come up with practical tools for motivation.
Remember Why You Started
As you tackle one problem after the other and begin to feel consumed in the issues, take a step back. This could mean walking away from the problem and getting some fresh air outside. A walk around the block, going to get a cappuccino from your favorite spot, or just closing yourself in a room where you can be alone with your thoughts for a few minutes. Take the time out to remember what drew you to starting your own beauty business in the first place.
Once you have come up with that one apparent reason, hold onto it. Write it down in your journal, on your phone, or in your day planner. Then, if you can set aside some time in your day to create your motivation or vision board — this can be something beautiful that you and possibly even your staff turn to when you’re struggling with an issue.
Let the reason you started the business be the focal point of this board, and flower the rest with images and words of where you want the company to go. Make it unique and inspiring!
Think About ThePositive Feedback You’ve Received
When you’re swamped with stress and negativity, it has the power to take over your entire thinking process. Your team and customers should be your focus, and sometimes we forget about the positive things they’ve shared with us.
If you’re not at a point where you have a team yet, perhaps a company or freelancer has worked with you who has had something to say about your service or products.
Think about the positive feedback you have received about the work you’ve done so far. Hold onto the positivity that has made a mark in your mind and on your heart.
Do A Brain Dump To Get Rid Of Swirling Thoughts
To deal with the issues at hand, you need to control your mind and thoughts. We love to do a “brain dump” when things feel complex or cloudy. Often, we are overwhelmed with constantly thinking over the same things but in different ways.
Set 15 minutes aside to get rid of swirling thoughts. All you will need is a piece of paper, or if you’re more comfortable typing up a list on your laptop — it’s entirely up to you. Set a timer and use that time just to throw down all of the things on your mind. Don’t sugarcoat a thing!
This is a private exercise, and no one else will see what you have put down. Once the timer goes off, you are done. Go over it all to make sure it is everything, and once you are happy, you can take a deep breath and move on.
You will feel a lot lighter. You can throw away or delete what you’ve created and put together a rough to-do list from this exercise. Create this list with your priorities at the top and the other items further down. You will feel a lot more in control once you have everything out and free from your mind.
As business owners or entrepreneurs, we need to constantly renew our minds so that we don’t get burnt out. An excellent way to do this is to find inspiration. If you can turn to a mentor or industry expert for a chat when you need a bit of fuel, this is a huge privilege.
You need people in your life and team that you can look up to and seek advice when the time comes. Try to prioritize these relationships, as they will be significant and beneficial as your beauty business grows and develops.
