Staying motivated is easy when everything is going well, but it not always last! We have to renew it each and every day. That is okay. It does not make motivation a bad thing. You simply have to realize that if you want to stay motivated over the long term, it is something you will have to apply yourself to each and every day.
1. Have a goal for your life.
If you do not have a goal, then what are you moving toward? The root word of motivation is “motive. ” The definition of motive is, “A reason to act. ” This is the cognitive or rational side of motivation. It is your vision. You have to have a vision that is big enough to motivate you. Set out a vision and a strategy for getting there. Have a plan and work the plan.
2. Fuel your passion.
It is much easier to be motivated to do what you are passionate about. Set yourself on a course to have a consuming desire to reach your goals.
3. Work hard and get results. The harder you work, the more results you get, and the more results you get, the more it will motivate you to work harder! Start with a small achievable goal. Aim to lose a few pounds. When you have, it will motivate you to work toward losing more.
4. Surround yourself with motivational material.
Find good material that will motivate you toward where you want to go. Read books that teach you new ideas and skills. Read books that tell the stories of successful people. Buy them, read them, and get motivated! Buy great music and listen to it. It gets you going and motivates you!
