The path on our journey, as we are working towards and expecting the manifestation of our desire, produces patience and endurance. But how do you keep motivated during the months and perhaps years of hoping and expectation? How do you keep the dream fire alive?
Tip #1 - Know that you will have your desire at the right time
When you know in your mind that you will have it and release the outcome it takes the frustration out of waiting. As long as you keep adding fuel to your desire daily by connecting with your emotions, you will have it.
Tip #2 - Encourage others
As you are encouraging others as they are also moving forward to achieving your goals, it stirs up the fire in you to keep holding on. And at the same time, you are becoming stronger internally and gaining more valuable insight in your own life. You begin to build stronger bonds as you can identify with their struggles as well.
Tip #3 - Keep a journal
Journaling your inspiration along the way opens you up to see life differently and on a deeper level. When you have reached your goal, you can share with others the path that you've taken to get there, the mistakes made and the invaluable lessons learned along the journey.
Tip #4 - Be accountable to someone
Apart from wanting to share my inspiration with others, I write on my blog, especially on my weight reduction journey, to keep me accountable to my readers. That way I must practice what I preach. Also I know others are on the same path and my determination and persistence could be the key to encouraging others to keep keepin' on and change their lives.
