If you could sustain lasting motivation, how much more successful would you be? Wouldn’t it make a dramatic difference to your life?
I am sure you will agree with me that actually getting motivated can be a bit of a struggle sometimes! This past week, my family and myself have been moving house, and there were times when I felt less than motivated! I just had to remind myself of the smaller yet important steps to remain focused and motivated.
These are seven tips to help stay motivated and to achieve much more...
Tip 1. See your Success and Love it.
Success is not achieved accidentally. It is a systematic, deliberate process of deciding what you want to do with your life, what you will do when you get there, and what the steps are to get you where you want to be. One of the most important aspects of success is the ability to visualize your path and stay focused on your goal until you reach it. More so, really engage your heart and love the visualisation you are making for yourself (and others).
Tip 2. Imagine what you can do – its beautiful!
The sooner you envision your dreams and develop a plan to turn them into reality, the faster you will accomplish your goals. Mental pictures are a mechanism to lead you down the path of true independence and motivation. Your imagination is like a preview of your future. If you don't use your imagination your life will remain mundane and unfulfilling.
Tip 3. Get on with it!
Overcoming procrastination is the first step in helping you create the lifestyle you desire. You must change the habits and behaviours that led you to procrastinate in the first place. Change is a slow process so be sure to reward yourself along the way for small achievements. Instead of focusing on the difficulty of a large task, break it into smaller jobs and create a timeline for finishing them.
Tip 4. Take on life in small chunks.
Several small jobs done over time are much more manageable that one large task with no end in sight. You'll be astonished at how much you can get done if you concentrate on one thing at a time instead of cluttering your mind with multiple tasks. Try tackling the more undesirable tasks early in the day so that by afternoon you can pursue more pleasant activities.
Tip 5. Get organised!
Relieve yourself of the pressure created by clutter in your office or home. Develop a filing system, rid yourself of unnecessary papers, and give yourself an organized place to work. When you exercise self-discipline in your surroundings as well as your behaviours, you will make major strides in accomplishing your goals in a shorter period of time. No matter what is happening around you, keep your mind focused on the reward you'll receive by reaching your goals.
Tip 6. Keep away from naysayers!
If people or outside forces distract you, use the power of the human mind to block out what impedes your progress and concentrate solely on the task at hand.
You will make remarkable progress by refusing to let others alter the path you have chosen. Overcoming procrastination and staying motivated is the way to lifetime success and happiness. You'll achieve your goals rapidly when you stay focused on your destination and the rewards that will follow.
Tip 7. Take time to reflect.
Review your habits and way of thinking to determine what you are visualizing most of the time. If your visions do not lead you in the direction of accomplishing your goals, then you must change them. Discipline yourself to concentrate on your goals the majority of the time, and if you stray from the path, get promptly back on. Imagine what the rewards will be when you finally reach your destination and keep that thought foremost in your mind.
Well, those are my 7 tips for sustaining motivation - but do you what? Its done to one thing and one thing only - YOU!
So go make a difference!
