    5 Easy Ways to Rekindle the Passion for Your Business (Photo: TJ Nuckolls)

    Winter! It’s 5 pm and dark outside. All you want to do is go home and watch reruns of Modern Family. I get it. It takes energy and fizz and a sense of purpose to get up off the couch. It takes a passion for something bigger than eating mac ‘n cheese and searching for cat videos on YouTube.
     
    Sometimes business sucks the life out of you. You started a business because you have a passion for something. Maybe its the day-to-day craft. Maybe its the lifestyle that having your own business creates. Regardless, life happens and your business may lose the luster it once had. The passion that once drove you fades. So how do you rekindle the fire? STOP. Take a deep breath and try these 5 easy ways to re-energize your passion for your business.
     
    1. Lighten Up.
     
    We are all going to die. We can choose whether or not we are going to live. Be present. Be joyful. Infuse energy into each day. Call it forth, from wherever it is. Breath it in. Resonate with the passion you have for what you do.
     
    2. Test Yourself.
     
    Pick a 5K, or a marathon. Put the date on your calendar. Search online for an appropriate training schedule and put that on your calendar, too. So what if your knees hurt or your fat jiggles or you get a headache.
