As a small business owner, some days are more challenging than others. In the entrepreneurial world, staying motivated is required to succeed. One of the most important ways you can keep yourself in a motivated mindset is to celebrate the everyday wins. As you review what you've done, pat yourself on the back for your wins and choose to look at every mistake as a lesson.

"You can become exhausted by decision making and the day-to-day activities," says Mary Ferguson, President of Concenter Services. "You need to always take breaks to stop and look back at the progress you have made on a continual basis to stay motivated." Appreciating how far you have come can be very rewarding and remind you why you became a small business owner in the first place.
