are entrepreneurs always on? great question...I have been told that I am pretty "high-energy" even when I am just having a regular conversation. Even if I am not amped or particularly excited, I can seem fired up to the casual observer, but there is clearly a difference. It is impossible not to have a down side to being amped all the time.

But for all practical purposes, I think that if you are aligned with your passion it is tough to burn out completely. Sure, there are times when you are tired from a hectic schedule, but that is different than burning out. If you are doing something that you are not passionate about it is only a matter of time before you burn out...count on it.

Then there is the matter of perseverence. That is a whole other topic, but one that I am fond of as well. It is the premise behind the book Suck it up, Buttercup! that was published this past fall...and which by the way, I have received my first royalty check from this past Friday! YAHOO! very cool! Now where was I???? yes, perseverence. Some people can just persevere through thick and thin and that also gives the illusion that someone is motivated all the time. I can make a slight distinction between being motivated and driven. Those that can persevere through the worst conditions tend to be driven versus motivated. In either case, if you can't be motivated, then be driven, if you can't be driven, then at least be motivated...it will get you further down the road than not being either one of them...Hope that helps, I am always glad to help.

If you find yourself short on motivation, feel free to pick up a copy of Suck it up, Buttercup! I guarantee there is no other book like it!
