Tips on How to Stay Motivated
It is rarely ever easy achieving your goals. Sustaining focus is challenging, to say the least. Check out these ten tips on how to stay motivated and focused so you can start achieving your biggest dreams.
1. Start setting goals
Write your goals down on paper and start manifesting your dreams. Make sure you’re not setting goals based on what you “think you should do.”
2. Visualize it
Visualize the end result and imagine how it will feel when you have reached your goal. Forbes ran a survey showing that visualizing your success absolutely works!
3. Break down your goals
Set smaller realistic goals that you can start accomplishing today. If you start with huge tasks, you are much more likely to quit. Make sure your tasks are manageable.
4. Organize your thoughts
Get the mess that is your thoughts out of your brain by writing them down on paper in an organized manner. A fantastic app we recommend to boost your productivity and organize the clutter in your mind is called Things.
5. Be Consistent
Every single day you should be moving toward your goal. This action doesn’t mean you need to be hustling to the point of exhaustion. Small steps will add up and push you ahead in significant ways.
6. Make it fun
Find ways to make the tasks you are doing enjoyable. Change your attitude and maybe try and take a different approach to your tasks.
7. Reward yourself
Give yourself a little incentive for when you have accomplished a task. This reward can look like a short break of relaxation or your favorite coffee from a local shop. Just find what works for you.
8. Remind yourself why you started
Sometimes we get so lost in the process and forget why we started in the first place. Gain back your motivation and inspiration by writing out the reasons you began your journey.
9. Stay positive
Your mind is your most powerful tool. If you start looking on the bright side and thinking more positively, your actions will follow.
10. Stop multitasking
Stop dividing your attention amongst a million different things. Work more efficiently by eliminating distractions and focusing on thing at a time.
