Motivation Tips

by @RumpleSteeleSkin

I've often struggled with motivation, whether it's been related to my career, my health, or just getting better at a hobby I enjoy. And while it's not always the biggest deal  sometimes it really worries me. I don't want to be filled with regret at some point down the line because I didn't follow through on something I really wanted, and I also don't want to feel like I failed at achieving the things that are important to me, all because I couldn't manage to stay on track when it really counted. Achieving our goals is seldom easy. It's why knowing how to stay motivated is so incredibly important when it comes to getting what we want in the long term. And in a world with more distractions than ever before  from non-stop web access to constant texting — it can be all the harder to stay focussed and not just give in to what's easier in the moment.
 

Here are some tips

Don't Assume Money Will Motivate You

Many people think money alone will be enough to motivate them and whilst that may do so initially, it's very hard to sustain financial motivation if the work you are doing actually drags. If you do that type of work for long enough you will find that no amount of money is worth swapping parts of your life in activities that aren't aligned with who you are and what truly is your passion and mission in life. So first things first be true to yourself when it comes to setting goals!

Make Sure They're Your Goals

 "One of the biggest challenges in staying motivated and sticking to our goals is in making sure that the goals we have set our ones we really want to attain." Sometimes we set goals based on what we think we 'should' do. Or we base them on what other people say.

Make sure you're going after something that you want and that makes you happy it can make all the difference

Visualize The Results

It's important to visualise the end result and what it will feel like when you've achieved your end goal. This means visualizing the sweat on your back, the feeling of relief,the utter excitement this is what will fuel you on days when you don't feel like working.


Break The Goal Down Into Smaller Pieces

Breaking your goals down into smaller more task orieted  and set target deadline for those tasks.For example. if your goal is "re-organize my entire closet," start by saying, "First I'm going to tackle the shoes, then the belts, then the winter coats in the back," etc. This method can make even the biggest task feel more manageable.
