How to Stay Motivated

As per wikipedia, Motivation is a theoretical construct used to explain behavior. It represents the reasons for people’s actions, desires, and needs. Motivation can also be defined as one’s direction to behavior or what causes a person to want to repeat a behavior and vice versa.

Motivation is being used a lot and it is indeed important to our lives. It is the reason why we stay focus on a particular goal and pursue it no matter what. Many believe that motivation often comes from somewhere else (a third party, experiences and many more). It could be a friend, love one or a family member who keeps on pushing you to do more and push your limit. It could be mentors or a life coach, helping you push forward into greatness.

Mentioned above are effective motivational sources but they can be temporary. You need to learn how to do it without external factors and achieve the desired level of motivation on your own accord. You have to be motivated at all times. Once you notice and begin to understand how important motivation is, you will strive to use it in many aspects of your life. When you are off track towards your goal and feel stuck, you will need to find the right energy to see things through to move forward and continue your journey. By channeling the right motivation, you will suddenly be able to do things sometimes your are not aware that you are capable of.

Tips that can help you to Stay Motivated.

Believe in Yourself

BelieveThis is your life, your own journey. A life coach can certainly help you but they are not always at your side. You can receive good advise from them bit it’s you alone who need to execute what you learn from them. Maybe you have fears that are controlling you and running at the back of your mind. They might be your limiting beliefs that holding you back. Maybe you are becoming a strong critic of yourself and you have already succeeded in discouraging your own self. Believing to yourself and to your God’s gift skill sets will surely fire up your motivation.

 

Talk to yourself

talk to yourselfTalk to yourself as you would talk to other people. Speak as though you are giving advice to someone, and be honest about what you think. You know yourself well and you know your strengths and weaknesses.
What is it that you want to achieve? Be specific with it. It is important that you know what you want and always follow one direction of movement and that is moving towards your goal (not the other way around). If you lose your way, just pick yourself up again, and move on.

 

Find an inspiration

Learn new to things

learnDo not get tired of learning. There are many ways that will help you feel good about yourself and knowledge is one. Learn how to upgrade your self and develop new skill sets.

Practice Gratitude

gratitudeGratitude helps us see our situation in a way that can lessen panic, and could open up our thinking to new solutions. Instead of focusing on the things that bring you down, why not look at the bright side of things and focus on what you have done well and have achieved. Surely, there is a silver lining for every event or situation. It is discomforting to have to look at mistakes, failures and errors, so why should you focus on that?

 

Visualize that you already achieved your goal

– When you are able to see yourself at the end zone and experiencing success, it makes everything seem attainable. Just like the old sayings: What your mind can conceive, you body can achieve.
