Smart and Simple Ways to Motivate Yourself
What keeps you alive? What feeds your soul? Do you know what that looks like? If so, motivate yourself so that you get there. In other words, what keeps you alive it’s essential for you to feed. For without it, what’s life worth?
Before we go any deeper, it’s important to acknowledge what you’re needing motivation for. What are you gaining from it in return? Once you’ve been able to answer these questions, you should be ready to dive right in.
If what you’re working towards doesn’t run through your veins, how do you motivate yourself? Too many times do we wait for the ‘perfect moment’ or the ‘perfection situation’. Well, I’m here to tell you that the perfect of anything doesn’t exist. Sometimes the best thing you can do is move to keep from standing still.
Again, what is it are you looking to find motivation for? Is it an important task that you need to execute? Or is it this master plan you’ve always dreamt of? Once you’ve acknowledged what executing it means to you, you’re ahead of the game.
So much goes on in life. Therefore, at times, getting things done can be a little challenging. No doubt about it. No wonder we find ourselves in need of ways to get motivated. The truth is, we all need it, even the successful. Like Nike, when in doubt, the best thing you can do is Just Do It!
No need to worry about what will come. You’ll figure it out along the way. Don’t we all do? When it’s all said and done, our limitless abilities allow us all to do so. Be patient. Rome wasn’t built in one day. Give it time. You got this!
Get MOtivated with Baby Steps
Sometimes we find our dreams so big it intimidates us. If so, just remember that every road trip starts off with 0 miles. No matter how far your journey, you don’t get there without starting from ground zero.
Whatever it is you’re working towards, it’s important to your existence that you execute. The world around you doesn’t always see what you see. Therefore, it’s crucial that you motivate yourself so that your wheel yourself through.
One step at a time, one task at a time, multiplied by constant effort and I promise you you’ll get there. We tend to marvel at a beautiful flower but have no idea what it took for it to be. We admire its beauty but fail to think of what it’s been through so that we can experience it.
Find motivation through every step knowing that you’re a step closer than you once were. Don’t look back, look forward. But if you choose to look back, only to do so to realize how far you’ve come, only to get motivated even more. You have nothing but to keep going. You’re far closer than you were at the beginning. If you’re unable to be your own motivation, here’s one for you. The Lion, the king of the jungle, was once a cub. Let that sink in.
Maintain Focus and Eliminate Distractions
Once again, how much does achieving your goals mean to you? Do you see it? Is it clear to you? When something or someone means a lot to you, nothing else seems to matter. Ever seen someone in love?
Watching two people in love is the most amazing thing you can witness. To watch them interact and indulge in affection while the world is happening is moving. It’s as if they’re the only thing happening and nothing else. Nothing happening around them can disrupt their moment.
The best way to motivate yourself is by ridding yourself of all the distractions. Once you do so, you’re only left with you and your dream. When you’re left with just your dream, then all you must do is walk towards it. Whatever you do, don’t stop.
Inspire yourself every day. It’s possible. Be inspired not only the things that are major. If you look a little deeper, you’ll find that there is inspiration in little things as well. Pause, take a look at yourself and see where you are. Be inspired not only by where you want to go but be inspired also by where you are. Through inspiring yourself you have the opportunity of inspiring others.
Let go of all those around you that don’t contribute to your getting there. If they’re a distraction, then it does you no justice to keep them around. If you find it hard, then maybe that dream of yourself may not mean that much to you. Remember that feeling you had of getting there? That’s the moment they’re keeping from. How would you feel if that moment was no longer possible?
Whatever you do, do right by you, your life, what feeds your soul. Without it, you’re good as dead.
