Motivation – How To Get Motivated!
We work hard to make a living; To run our business, work hard to keep healthy, to make other people happy and help to make the society a better place. We may be passionate about these activities even though they might not always be convenient.
Consistency can sometimes be an issue as we lose our reason as to why we engage in these activities.
So, how do we keep ourselves involved in these activities we are so passionate about?
How do we stay fully motivated?
Motivation is not magic; it is hard work and determination every day.
Motivation in itself is not enough; you need to commit yourself to your goal to see it through. Write it down, the reason why you want to achieve a specific goal.
If your goal seems overwhelming, make effective plans: Break your goal down to a step by step process and commit to making it little by little.
Writing down the reasons for wanting to meet your goal will help keep you motivated, it will be a constant reminder of why you set out on the mission in the first place. This will help you stay focused on your mission. Keep your end goal in mind.
Imagine being engaged in a race.
What keeps you motivated during your workouts is to reaching the finish line?
Your ultimate goal would be to finish and win the race.
How do you set up the goals of the activity and reach them?
Write your goals down.
Put reminders on the wall, on your laptop, on your phone so that you are constantly reminded.
Jack Canfield made a $100,000 bill by taking a hundred dollar bill and added three zeros to it, so it looked like $100,000 and put it up on the ceiling above his bed. Every morning he woke up, he was reminded of his goal.
You can do the same; you can buy pillow cases with a motivational statement and start the day by getting motivated.
Nowadays the possibilities are endless; these are just a few suggestions to help keep your eyes on the goal and give you momentum!
I would recommend you join groups or mastermind group, with whom you can share your experience.
These groups can also help you reach your goal if you should lack motivation or experience, and letś admit, it is always nice to be surrounded by like-minded people.
Visit places that will help you focus on the business you have decided to engage in, places that motivate you to go after your goal.
After all, success is a lifestyle that is transmitted by association!
Always set goals:
If you want to make sure to achieve your goal, always set a goal with an end date.
Last year My husband and I set up a note reminding us that we were going travel September 2016.
At that point, I just started up my company, and everybody knows that in a startup, money is tight. There were times where it seemed impossible to be able to get away. Long story short, we did get away and had a wonderful trip.
Still today we get amazed how we made it.
No matter how ambiguous your projects may seem to be, you have to believe in them; You have to know that you will reach your goal.
Setback is a part of success:
If you experience a setback or a couple, don’t get disheartened.
Setbacks are a big part of success.
If you don’t fail at times, then you won’t learn, and you won’t get better. When you feel a bit lost and unmotivated, then it’s time to backtrack and study your journey.
Look at your setback, what can it teach you, what went wrong? What can you do differently and better?
Dig, learn and try a new approach.
Successful people study their failures and their success to become better; they never use it to give up or put themselves down.
Neither should you, keep trying you’ll get it right.
