How to stay motivated through the daily grind?
[Moving People to Action] New Here?
Hello, I've been exploring your videos on youtube, one was of particular interest was your TED talk. I found it very useful and the tools are something i'm working on implementing. Something i'm personally struggling with at the moment is expressing my views and needs in an effective manner at board meetings and one on ones. When I was fighting for my dream and raising investment for my idea I could effectively communicate what i needed and why it should be me. However since then my confidence has actually fallen, and i find myself stuck in one on ones, board meetings, with suppliers etc. Its almost as though I have lost my mojo since I achieved what I saw as a massive challenge to get over the fund raising hump! Ive been trying to fit it into the principles from your TED talk, writing everything down, focussing on a task at the time, and staying true to my values, but something is affecting my ability to remain firm in the face of others. I have the ideas in the prep for these meetings and conversations and what I want to achieve, but its almost as if I am being disarmed by the other, and I feel its coming from within, not, from any particular effort from the other-side. I know the things I want and how I was, but I was wondering if you had any thoughts on the above? Hope to hear back.
Best Wishes. Thom
