Let’s talk about motivation for a minute. I know I need it (hence my recent “Life As I Know It”).

Starting with emails piling up, to-do lists running into each other, meetings and appointments shuffled around in the calendar because hello life. Now toss in a redesign of my apartment and the constant buzzing notifications from social media. (Stops, to breathe) Oh, did I mention Fashion Week emails? (Insert FOMO because it’s true. This season, I’m not going!)

Sometimes it almost seems impossible, overwhelming – maybe even easier to curl up and shut down?

Trust me, I know the feeling.

What I will say I’ve learned through the years is that motivation is not a magic wand. It can’t be boxed up and ready or instantly purchased through some app but it is something we can develop…from what we already have within.

Here are 5 ways I stay (and feel) motivated:

1. Set a goal and visualize it. Let it be your driving force. Sometimes I create secret boards in Pinterest to help with this and look at them anytime I’m overwhelmed.

2. Write out why you set this goal(s). If the goal is big, break it down into smaller steps. Allow inspiration to come through any size of success. Remind yourself, “anything worthwhile in life takes time and effort to achieve.”

3. Be patient with yourself. Then, try and try again. I can’t reiterate this enough. Most businesses, blogs, brand fail because the entrepreneur gives up…

4. Put down the phone for awhile and replace scrolling with podcasts or audiobooks to fuel the mind and boost encouragement. Need inspiration? Check out “How I Built This” (favorite episodes: IG, Spanx, Airbnb and Bonobos) or Oprah’s “Super Soul Conversations.”

5. See that bigger picture constantly and remind yourself why it’s worth it. Life isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon. So grab those Balenciaga dad shoes and get ready to run the race!
