Motivation Plus Willpower Equals Success
Motivation is the key you need to succeed. Couple it with a strong willpower, and you will be able to reach the goal you have set for yourself.
It is up to you, and you alone, to devise a technique that will help you keep this drive within you alive.
It will help you to have visual goals. When you can make what you are working towards visual, this helps your motivation. Do you hope to purchase a new car, or go on a much needed vacation?
Take or cut out a picture of it and post it at a conspicuous place at work, or at home, where you can see it often. Stick it on the fridge, or up on the mirror, so that when you feel discouraged, you will see your goal and help to renew your determination to succeed.
Make a contract with yourself. According to motivational researches, people who write down to-do-lists are far more triumphant in achieving their intended goals than those people who just keep mental lists.
Putting something in writing somehow makes it more powerful psychologically speaking. Why not also include a reward you will give yourself when you finally accomplish your goal? Buy yourself something special, as a treat for a job well done!
Surround yourself with people who are positive, and who understand that you need encouragement.
It will make a big difference to your motivation if you are congratulated for your effort.
Negative people will bring you down and may affect how you feel about yourself, and worse still make you wonder whether what you are attempting is worth the effort.
Happy thoughts are important, they will give you the mental stimulation and help to keep you on track. Smile lots and think happy thoughts. Rather than wait for things to happen, become proactive and make things happen. Inactivity idles the brain and stagnates your potential to reach your goals.
Do you read inspirational books and literature? These will help you improve your attitude and heal your mind.
A book of success stories can also help to motivate you as you read how other people have overcome problems, and managed to succeed. What you learn from them could be instrumental in encouraging you to go for your goal, and move ahead with your plan.
When your problem is not knowing where to start, this can be frustrating. Knowledge is power. Have a clear understanding of how and where to start, this will empower you, and provide the extra drive you need to make your plans, and see them through to the end.
If, after making your plans, you still feel a lack of that much needed self-motivation, there is one last thing you must attempt, and that is........ just do it! Whatever it is that you want to achieve - just do it!
Aim high and go for it!
You might be surprised to discover that it's not as difficult as you thought it was going to be.
You will find your momentum pick up gradually as you go along, and before you know it you will have finally achieved your goal!
Lack of motivation happens to us all, but if you do not encourage yourself to accept opportunities and be challenged, no one else will.
Stay determined to keep your eye on the goal, find ways to keep going. When you do this, you will feel a sense of satisfaction, and self-achievement when you finally succeed.
When you stay determined you can do anything! O.K then, what's your next goal?
