When you have no will, you will have no way to motivate yourself. I have found that the best way to improve your effectiveness is to control your motivation and see that tiny spark inside your belly and turn it into a raging inferno.
When you have mastered your motivation, you will be able to fight off and deal with what life throws against you—finding ways to inspire you in moving forward by creating new experiences for yourself and move on with your life as well as your growth.
I have found when people are placed in a difficult situation and sometimes seems impossible for them to cope with or get out of and getting motivated is very hard, especially if they do not want to be. People must be encouraged in the first place. They want and need to get out of the situation they are presently stuck in.
The motivation that comes from within you does make a huge difference. It is because that kind of inspiration is driven from you and is fired up by you. Through your self-belief, it is the fire that is inside. It is your self-belief, it is the drive you have, it is your very own energy source. It produces the internal incentives, your ambitions, your dreams, desires, and your goals and in many cases your ethics that you hold dear to you and of course, the work you do,
Motivation is what drives us all as well as the direction we are taking towards our goals, it get us up in the morning and helps us to work through the day and completing all the tasks we have to do.
If you are really finding it hard!
Perhaps tried and failed to get motivated, then think about asking for help from someone you trust. Sometimes it is hard to achieve things on your own (I used to think this) so, in later life I found that having a support network around me helped me when I had big challenges to face.
Ways to keep yourself on track:
- All ways make your goals part of your routine, put them in you CRM, Diary or on your notice board.
- Talking to yourself in a positive (self-talk) is very important and I find effective.
- Mindfulness helps keep you relaxed and also focused.
- Star a support group or join one, they are very effective.
- Try to reward yourself when you have completed a step, goal or a difficult project.
Some ways of staying motivated:
- You should always be reviewing your goals and the progress your making; this also will help with your self-esteem as well.
- Always be thinking of new goals and what you would like to achieve next week, next month, next year. But only tackle one goal at a time.
- You need to keep the momentum up and remember that it can take up to 3 months to get a development in a regular cycle going.
- If you can, try to find a mentor who is experienced in the habit that you would like changed You need to surround yourself with very positive people they will always help to build you confidence and motivation, keep well clear of “Negaholics”.
- Daily exercise is one way to get you day off to a great start, I do 30 minutes each morning before my shower every day in my study.
