Goal-setting makes your mind think differently and drives you towards it naturally. The obstacles appear small to a person having enough motivation.

For daily motivation to arise, mental preparation (the night before and during the morning) is key. Certain visuals, music, and other trigger pieces can set your mind towards your goal.

Successful and rising entrepreneurs have a key behavior trait that propels them towards their goals: Motivation towards that goal, the constant fixation in their minds to what they want to achieve.

Successful entrepreneurs have a system, a daily set of habits, a power routine that defines their work ethic, eventually defining the course of their lives.

Entrepreneurs who keep rising and stay motivated are the ones who never lose sight of their goals, always keeping them at the forefront of their minds.

Successful and motivated entrepreneurs set aside all external forces and distractions and have their own set of high standards. They do things a majority of people find difficult to do, like waking up early or avoiding TV or junk food.

Successful entrepreneurs know what they want in life, and what is the purpose of their existence. They have chosen a destiny and defined their purpose of living.
