Stay Motivated Any Time, Any Day
We’ve written posts about self-motivation which you can refer to, for a better understanding of where your drive should come from. A quick reminder, it primarily starts within.
Identifying what motivates you to keep going, and keep going in much color and style are vital in allowing you to be able to stay motivated no matter the circumstance. And it’s possible to be consistent that way.
In life, we usually let ourselves ride a jagged roller coaster. Just when we experience highs, we immediately find ourselves dragged to the bottom of the anxiety pit. In addition to this, our motivation falters and sometimes even disappears when things don’t go the way we want them to.
And that’s where the conflict lies. The world will not give us experiences that are always a hundred percent the way we expect them to be. When lay out plans, there will always be unexpected changes that may occur. These shouldn’t dampen our spirit, and yet they do. So read on and learn how not to lose that drive.
The Importance Of Consistent Motivation
Everything we do, tasks at home, in the office, hobbies, workout routines, learning a new craft and the like all require that key ingredient. Motivation. This is because everything has a process. We don’t get results with just a snap of our fingers. Similarly, the process is, more often than not, difficult.
Don’t get disheartened. We’re not saying these to get you down. On the other hand, we’re telling you the truth about life and how to be consistently motivated. It’s true that difficulties lie ahead. However, it’s also true that you are capable of going them more than you think.
Now, what we need to come to grips is that about more than fifty percent of the time, we go through the process strong at the beginning and give up in the middle of it. And this is true in the professional as well as the non-professional world. So holding on to that drive is important to help us stay on course and get to the finish. To start strong and to finish strong.
How Can We Stay Motivated In Any Circumstance, At Any Time?
Once you’ve set what your goal is, divide it into chunks of smaller endpoints. Make them tangible. Set a schedule for doing them and a deadline for each one. View them as tasks that are achievable. That way, you won’t feel like your main goal is too overwhelming. Plus, if it’s divided into tangible tasks, you are more likely to complete them with a sense of urgency.
Second, don’t focus on things that aren’t in your control. Always have that in mind. Of course, you have to be discerning about which ones are and aren’t. Have an open mind and teach yourself to accept factors that may be added to your plans. Versatility is going to be your new best friend!
Let your mind be positive. Positivity is a tool we all need in any situation. It triumphs over stress and fear so that you aren’t crippled by them. We may be unaware of it but stress and fear lead us to stop at our tracks instead of pushing forward. So keep positive. Focus on the good than the bad. Similarly, for the bad, see what you can do to improve them.
Give yourself breaks every now and then. They act as breathers to refresh your body and mind. Also, it is a manner of not letting you slack off.
Lastly, remind yourself of your primary goal. Think of it and pinpoint the rewards of achieving it. Pinpoint the emotions you’ll feel once you’re at the finish. Whenever you struggle or feel like giving up, remembers the goal. Remember the rewards. Go back to those feelings of emotion for once the journey is through. Then you’ll be able to pick yourself back up and continue with determination and grit!
