Motivation is an inside job. No one can keep you motivated better than yourself. Sometimes your feelings and emotions could get in the way of your progress. You may have to fight through your weaknesses to always stay motivated and strong. When you are on the pursuit of your dreams, no force in the universe can prevent you from achieving success. You are the only person standing between what you are and what you could become. You will have whatever you believe. If you believe you will succeed or fail, you will definitely have it. Go after what you want without limiting yourself. There is no limit to what you can accomplish.
Take a look at seven (7) ways to keep yourself motivated;
1) Every day is a new opportunity to reach that goal:
Every day is another opportunity to reach your dreams and goals. Don’t wear yourself out because you couldn’t accomplish a task or because you weren’t strong enough for that intended position. Learn to rest when tired but don’t give up. Tomorrow is another opportunity to pick up where you left off. Keep persevering. Keep taking steps in the right direction even though they may appear small. Don’t let your current state trick you into believing that change isn’t possible. Do the best you can with what you have at the moment and surely all your hard work will pay off one day.
2) Spend time with people who bring out the best in you:
You are just as strong as the people you spend your time with. If you are the timid type and want to boost your self-confidence, you should therefore learn to spend time with confident people who believe in themselves, for they will surely help bring out the best in you. Spend more time with people that are already the way you want to be. Successful people have behavioral patterns that makes them always succeed even when they aren’t trying so hard. Spend more time with successful people to learn about their traits. You are capable of becoming more than you already are, and the fastest way to become the best version of yourself if by spending time with great friends.
3) Believe in yourself, you will be unstoppable:
There is a lot you can accomplish when you believe in yourself. You will be able to reach the highest peak of your endeavors if you truly believe in yourself. The word impossible scares the unbeliever away from his pursuit but motivates the believer to keep pressing forward. Understand that you are your most valuable asset; the temple. Your mind will believe everything you feed it. Don’t feed your mind with negative thoughts, for negativity will taint everything you do. Feed your mind with positive thoughts that will only push you to take positive actions. Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable.
4) Follow one course until you achieve success:
When you have a vision for a project, hold onto that vision until you achieve success. Don’t get swayed off course. Learn to follow one course until you achieve your desired outcome. Sometimes when things aren’t going according to plan, it is easy for one to give up from their pursuit. Daunting challenges may present themselves to discourage you from moving forward. Keep your eyes on the price and keep pushing forward. Persist in the face of obstacles knowing that they are only stepping stones to attain greater height.
5) You are more than good enough:
It is easy to feel inadequate when doing the best you can but still nothing to show for it. It could make you start feeling not good enough. At any point you find yourself in life, always remind yourself that you are good enough. You may not have attained that level you so desired, but that doesn’t make you any less capable. When you start feeling inadequate, insecurities find their way to creep in; this makes you stop doing your best for the fear of it not amounting to anything. No matter the situation you find yourself, don’t fall into the bonds of negativity. You are not lacking anything neither are you less capable. You are more than good enough.
6) Don’t compare yourself to others:
We all have different roles to play in this movie called Life. Some spend their life comparing it to the way others live theirs. Not until you find out what role you are meant to play in life and walk the path, you will continue being a wanderer. Success comes from doing what you are passionate about. Find out what you are passionate about and fuel it. Don’t spend time comparing yourself to others because you have no idea what their journey is all about. Focus on bettering yourself. Don’t get discouraged when you see others living the kind of life you want to live. Understand that they have created the life they can be proud of, so you should do the same. We are all uniquely gifted. Find out what your gift is about and make the best of it by pursuing your passions.
7) Live in the moment, focus on the present:
Life is a gift. Some fail to acknowledge life’s manifold blessings by holding onto the past. Whatever happened in the past is gone forever and never to return. You are free to live in the moment. Don’t put the present on hold by dwelling on past events. Let go of the past and all of its hurts. Look forward to a brighter future. Live in the moment knowing that life have the best things in store for you. When you focus on the present, you pave the way for a remarkable future. The future will continually remain a mystery to those still stuck in the past. This is because they miss out on all the wonderful gifts the present have to offer. By staying focused and actively engaged in the present, you motivate yourself for greatness.
