HOW TO MOTIVATE YOURSELF

Hello people, it’s #WednesdayMotivation.

Welcome. Do you remember I wrote concerning goals on Monday? Yes! I believe you have started working on it. Yet I have a feeling that some are getting tired. So today, I will talk about how to get motivated. I did an in-depth search on it. Follow through.

HOW TO MOTIVATE YOURSELF

Most people are used to people motivating them but It’s not easy to motivate yourself. Most times we have tried a lot of things to do things right but still, end in a circle. We set the alarm early, write a to-do list, and so on but it’s not working right because in the long run we end up not staying motivated.

You don’t need people to motivate, just motivate yourself.

1. Just Start

Do that very thing which you have to do. Set aside all of the negative emotions and simply START. Mark Twain once said: “The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”

2. Break down task Into Small Steps

This makes the work easier and simpler to take on. This is because our brains retreat when it sees a huge task. Breaking down the task makes the brain relax.

3. Create a Positive Mindset

Looking at the positive aspects of the task energizes you to do the task. Getting motivated is almost impossible if you’re looking at the situation from a negative viewpoint.

4. Be Grateful

Being grateful for yourself opens you up to the task and makes you positive and motivates you to do the task.

5. Be Kind to Yourself

Speaking to yourself several times even in mistakes or procrastination is important. Speak to yourself kindly as you will speak to others.

6. Be Constructive

When you realize you’ve not done what you are meant to do. You then must plan to learn and improve. Ask yourself, “Why did I make this mistake? How can I avoid making the same mistake in the future?” If you do this and act on what you learn. You will learn.

7. Cut Your To-Do List Down

To-do lists can help us organize our tasks and focus on what’s important. However, they can also overwhelm us so much that we end up procrastinating even more. So, if you find yourself struggling to stay motivated, cut your to-do list down to a more manageable size. Each day, choose no more than three tasks and make that your new to-do list. Then, ignore all but the first item. You may find that with time, you can take on a long to-do list.

8. Set Attainable Goals That Excite You

Let go of goals that make you tired. Instead, choose exciting enough goals to help you motivate yourself, but not so big that you freeze when facing them.

9. Imagine Your Future If You Don’t Change

This tip can make inspiring yourself easy: Instead of focusing on the change you want, imagine the life you’ll have if you don’t stay motivated. Ask yourself, “What will life be like in one year, five years, and ten years?”

10. Reflect on How Far You’ve Come

Take a few minutes to close your eyes, pause and remember all those things you have done. Do this often to help you stay motivated.
