The dictionary defines motivation as a reason or reasons to act in a particular way. It is a desire to accomplish something. Most times when we want to accomplish a goal we need a willingness to help us improve our habits and get results.
It is easier to become motivated about an activity when you are passionate about it. So ask yourself why you are passionate or dispassionate about an activity. One way to certainly get motivated is to find your passion in a particular activity. When you do, you can be motivated about it. You could also include others in this activity and gain the support you need to keep on going.
Here are some quick tips to help you in this mission. Just follow each one and get on the road to success;
1. HAVE A PURPOSE
What drives people to go further and further is the purpose. For you to understand better, let’s use the example of the big brands. Apple is more than a company that makes computers and cell phones, it is a company that goes against the status quo. It works every day to reinvent how people connect, rather than inventing a new iPhone feature. That’s what motivated the company to go that far.
2. KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOUR GOALS ARE
Once you discover your purpose, it’s time to set goals. The wishes you hope to achieve in 2017. Keep them very clear, written in a piece of paper or on the wall in your office is a good way to stay motivated. When you stick to your goals you will feel renewed to reach them.
3. ESTABLISH STRATEGIES, THEY WILL KEEP YOU MOTIVATED
With your stated goals, establish a way to reach them. For example, if you are looking for a salary increase, you will have to propose outstanding work within your company. This will keep you motivated because you already know which way to take.
4. VALUES AND REWARDS
Create a list of personal skills and consult it whenever you are having insecurities before any challenge. Sometimes we think we cannot do something and that’s poison for motivation. If you are where you are, it is because you have earned it. Never demerit your talent. Each time you reach one of the stated objectives get a reward. Maybe a weekend at the beach or a new car. Setting goals with rewards also works very well to stay motivated.
5. THINK POSITIVE
Lastly, do not let negative thoughts get you. When you have a positive attitude you attract good things and good people who can help you. It’s time to think about it, visualize it, write it down, share it with someone else, take actions to support your thoughts. Now just get ready and get to work. With these tips, your motivation will be incredible this year.
I learn everyday, even a victim sometimes to feel unmotivated and lazy. But whenever I think about my journey, I have to get up and do something. Like my pastor will say, even if it’s to write your goals and plans on a sheet of paper, it’s a step to whatever you want to achieve. If you a blogger and have not yet started yielding value from your platform. Don’t give up, keep moving, persistence is the key. “Rome wasn’t built in a day” To start motivating yourself can be any time to start over as long as you stay motivated.
Don’t forget write down in a piece of paper all the objectives that make your life more complete and your career more successful.
