How Do You Get Motivated After A Tragedy?

As entrepreneurs we are constantly hitting the ‘Go!’ button. However, as humans life can throw us some inevitable curve balls that make us hit ‘Stop’. These situations can be tragic, like losing a loved one, a big break up or a really bad outcome from a previous decision.

So, when tragedy strikes, how can you pick yourself up again and get back on the path to success?

 The Magic Of Marketing Episode 13 - How Do You Get Motivated After A Tragedy With Jennifer Trask

I recently discovered this as ‘life happened’ to me in a very unexpected way when in August, 2013, I lost my father. His passing was difficult for my whole family as he was such an important person in our lives. You can see why in my tribute here.

As an entrepreneur however, I had a business to run and needed to get back to reality. In the process of this, I realized that there have been 6 steps to helping me get back my motivation to go to work on my dreams again. 

I wanted to share them with you in this week's episode of The Magic of Marketing so that you may keep them in your toolbox for when life throw's you that inevitable curve ball. 



P.S. Have you ever had to cope with something like this? What did you do to get back on track? Let us know in the comments below.

Thank you for sharing, Jennifer. I think that your 6 steps would be very helpful to anyone facing a tragedy and trying to get back to "normal" as you are doing. There is great wisdom in your statement, "Our biggest tragedies lead to our biggest triumphs." Hugs
