Ever felt excited about starting a new project, beginning a new diet program, working on your financial or relationship goals only to find yourself feeling unmotivated to keep pressing forward?
Motivation provides the energy boost you need to keep trying even if you encounter roadblocks and setbacks along the way. The only way you can achieve your goals is by taking consistent action until you reach the finish line. That's where motivation comes in. And here are 3 tips that will help you stay motivated even after the initial excitement is gone.
Tip # 1 - Have a Strong 'Why'
What's your reason for achieving your goal? Is your reason strong enough to pick you up off the floor and put you back on the road to your initial goal? What would it feel like if you did achieve your goal? How would that change your life? Formulate your answers around these questions before you actually start on your journey, that way you'll always have that energizer pushing you forward.
A weak reason will only energize the temptation to procrastinate and justify your reason for giving up.
Here are some other questions to think about; what would happen if you didn't achieve your goal? How would it affect your health, your relationship, your family life or your future?
Tip #2 - Focus on Your Goal
How can you stay focused on your goal when you face obstacles, setbacks or frustration? Depending on how you process information these may be interpreted as reasons for you to give up on your dream. If you see setbacks as an opportunity cloaked in the form of adversity this will motivate you to keep taking consistent action towards achieving your goal and turn the energy of adversity into success for you.
If you don't process adversity that way, begin to practice shifting your perspective and look for the positive in every negative encounter. Think of adversity as an opportunity to go to university - the University of Life.
Tip #3 - Get Support
You may be the type of person that self-motivates, however, if you're the type that gets distracted, whether by life or adversity, get the support you need to keep you on track. Sometimes all it takes is one good person in your corner that you can talk with that will keep you true to yourself and to your dreams, and be the pain in the butt, if necessary, to keep you on track.
If you don't have access to this type of support, find a group of like-minded individuals who's inspirational stories will give you the motivation you need.
