Looking beyond the current situation seeking for something to inspire you...to push you. We all need motivation at every point in our lives. Personally, I feel tired, lazy, basically not motivated to do anything sometimes. I would just want to sit on the couch and watch movies all day or surf the net. But for how long would I do that?
- Take Action
Motivation needs action to work, if you have a list of things to do...just do it. I think the problem some persons have is that they over think things. For instance, you plan to work out in the morning but you are just there in bed thinking whether or not to do it. From there you begin to think of the after pain that comes with it or how long it is going to take. The answer you need here is to take action...go ahead and do it, don't think about whether or not just make a move...only when you do you see that it is achievable.
- Don't Over think things
Wasting time over thinking kills the motivation you may feel at that moment. You want want to work out...just do it or at least take a step towards it. No matter how little it maybe, take a step. It may look like nothing at first but it is a step closer to your set goal.
- Words of affirmation
Your choice of words and way you think also matter. Do away with negative thoughts and imbibe the use of positive mantra...words you say to yourself each day to help keep yourself in high spirit. Positivity create a good mood for a person generally...set up the mood, no one says you can't, create the kind of atmosphere you want for yourself.
- Find people that are like minded
By this I mean, find those people who wants the same thing you do or who are in a higher position in that same field as you are aiming for. When you are around such people you tend to get motivated to do more and better. They can also help and support your actions by reminding and gearing you up when you begin to lack motivation at any point. They may act as a guide, mentor or motivator...even a friend, the choice is yours.
- Set a reward
Oh yeah, you read right...set a reward for yourself. It makes so much sense to give yourself a treat after the work done. Learn to take a break, see how far you have gone and appreciate it. Listen to some music, go for shopping, treat yourself to a meal and a nice wine...just fun in your own away and do not feel guilty about it. You deserve a good treat also...so enjoy the reward you set for yourself.
While some people find getting motivated hard, some actually find quite easy. Don't beat yourself too much if you find it a bit difficult, we all have those days at some point in our lives. All you need do is get right to it and a take a step towards finding that motivation.
I hope you find the above tips useful, life can get boring sometimes..we all need motivation at some point.
