When people are highly motivated, it’s easy to accomplish the impossible. And when they’re not, it’s impossible to accomplish the easy.
October 31st - Keeping motivated
The way to get started is to quite talking and begin doing.
Feeling motivated is a great way to feel When motivated individuals often feel like they could take on the world. Unfortunately it is incredibly difficult to feel motivated constantly and we all go through periods where we feel unmotivated. However it is important to be able to get motivated when things must be done.
Over the years I’ve found a few solutions to this common proplem so I thought I’d share them with you, especially for those that are in need of some motivation.
Make a deal with yourself and tell your self when I’m done with the job I can take a walk in the park and buy some icecream.
If you don’t feel motivated then act like it. The strange thing is that within a few minutes you actually start to feel motivated , positive or enthusiastic for real.
It’s important that you really feel how it makes you feel. Do the toughest job first, It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up. Viewing how much you’ve done, You can be pleasantly surprised to review what you’ve done. If you fail then try to find the valuable lessons in each of your failures.
If you don’t know or don’t have a good enough reason to do something, then it will be hard to get it done. Do things that you have strong reasons to do. Focus on the positive and learn to let go of the negative before thy have a chance to take control.
Break down your task to small steps. When you are done move on to the next step and focus on that one. Small successes will keep your motivation us an keep your focus away from the big picture, stops you from overthinking and being overwhelmed and discouraged.
Make each day count. While we don’t have all the time in the world, but if we focus on today and do the thing we really want to do, each day will take care of itself.
If you are working on something that you really care about, you don’t have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.
