Get Motivated! Motivate Yourself With These 6 Tips For Prosperity
If you are anything like the rest of the population, then you probably have days, weeks or even months when you find that your motivation is lacking. Perhaps you joined a gym but are yet to show up? Or decided months ago that you need to find a new job, but are yet to even get out your CV? Whether your motivation is mildly waning or has taken a dramatic nosedive, you are not alone! We have all undoubtedly been there. The problem is, just how do you give your motivation the kick up the derrière that it needs to help you become the person that you know you can be?
Motivation is an essential force, critical for helping us to see our ambitions through and achieve our goals (but don't forget to Use The Law Of Attraction To Set Goals The Right Way). Our levels of motivation will always be prone to come and go. But, when you feel that it is seriously lacking then the action is needed to get you up and active and ready to tackle life head-on. For a quick motivational boost, here are 7 great motivational tips that you should begin practicing starting from today!
#1: Get The Hard Stuff Out Of The Way
More often than not, we put things off because it is the thought of actually getting started that daunts us. Making the first move is without a doubt the biggest hurdle, so why not get all of the bad bits out of the way by tackling your most challenging task first?
Sound crazy? Probably. But once you overcome that initial big task, your motivation can suddenly be sent flying through the roof! Once you have proven to yourself that you are capable of overcoming obstacles, the rest of your tasks or ambitions to fulfill can seem considerably less scary.
#2: Do What You Love
Motivation comes considerably more easily when you are doing something that you love.
So, if you find that you are stuck in quite possibly your longest motivation rut perhaps ask yourself:
- Why am I trying to do this?
- Are you doing something that should bring you greater happiness in the long run?
- Or do you feel as though you are being forced into trying to do something?
Whether it is your work, your goals or your commitments, look for ways that you can do more of the things that you are passionate and love and less of the things that you don’t.
#3: Keep Your Eye On The Prize
If you are in the process of working towards your goal or dream, but it is a lengthy and tiring process, then keep motivation levels high by regularly reminding yourself of what it is that you are working to achieve.
Create a dream board showing pictures, words, quotes, and inspiration that help remind you of what it is that you want to achieve. So, if you are working long hours to save up to travel, keep pictures of your favorite locations around your workspace. Or if your long-term goal is to slim down and achieve your dream body, keep a picture of your dream body nearby and regularly track your progress to give yourself a boost.
#4: Be Selective
The problem that many people have is that they take on too much. Whether it is in their career, social life or home life, when you have too much on your plate, it can become hard to get motivated about anything.
So lighten your load! Prioritise and learn to be more selective about what you do and do not take on.
#5: Take Breaks
We are at our best when we are well rested and alert. Therefore, how can anyone expect to feel motivated when they are overworked, run down or generally overwhelmed?
To keep motivated in everything that you do, be sure to always take regular breaks. When you schedule regular breaks for yourself you not only give yourself a chance to refresh but you are also more likely to work harder because you know that you have a break coming up.
It doesn't matter how you choose to spend your break. Maybe yours is with a cuppa, napping or reading a magazine. Just be sure to take one!
#6: Reward Yourself
The best motivator can often be a reward of some sort. When you are running out of steam and are losing the will to carry on with whatever goal or ambition that you are currently working towards, then the promise of a reward can do wonders for motivation levels.
You could promise yourself a reward at certain goal posts throughout your journey, for example, if you had set yourself the target of losing weight then you might want to reward yourself at certain milestones in your weight loss with clothes, or a trip.
Small rewards can work just as well, for example, if you are losing motivation at work. The promise of a cup of tea or 5 minutes of reading your favorite magazine once you have completed a set amount of work could be just enough to keep you going.
Be good to yourself and make everything you do more rewarding for you – feeling good should be what motivation is all about.
