Today we talk about a few Tips to Finding Daily Motivation
The core of most personal goals is self-improvement. Everybody wants to be better at the things they do or as a person. In your quest to improve yourself, you must have realized early on that there are rarely short cuts to your goals and that you have to work on it from day to day. Finding the daily motivation to continue your efforts is oftentimes the biggest hurdle to achieving your goals.
You may have written down your goals and the first steps toward them may be clear in your head but there are just so many distractions and stressful situations that happen every day, that losing daily motivation is not surprising. Nevertheless, if you falter today you need to get back up tomorrow because that is the only way you will realize your goals. If you need some help finding daily motivation, here are some quick suggestions:
Tips to Finding Daily Motivation
Re-create the desire you have for your goal. Visualize yourself when you have achieved what you wanted. For example, if your goal is to lose 30 pounds, imagine yourself finally doing that and being able to wear the clothes that you want. Imagine the approving looks of your friends or acquaintances when they see you. Just try to think about what it would feel like to be 30 pounds lighter. Immerse yourself in this exercise for some high-level daily motivation.
Do the opposite of the above tip. Instead of imagining yourself succeeding in your goals, think about what would happen if you failed. The thought of failure can be frightening so most people actually find this exercise more effective in boosting daily motivation.
Re-evaluate your goal. Is it really something you want or maybe other factors went into play when you were goal-setting? Losing daily motivation a few times is understandable but if you have lost interest in your goal for more than a week now, that is as good as quitting and you may need to re-assess your goals or the actions you are taking to achieve them. If a particular task is holding you back and zapping your daily motivation, re-focus on the bigger picture. If, on the other hand, you are suddenly overwhelmed by your goal then fuel your daily motivation by taking it one step and one day at a time. Look back at what you have accomplished after a week, and you will see that you have actually done a lot of work.
Lastly, take care of yourself. If you do not have the physical energy, it will be hard to sustain daily motivation so make sure you sleep well, eat a balanced diet and get some exercise.
These are just some few suggestions to motivate yourself but everything still depends on you. Try one or two of them to get you right back on track.
