7 Ways On How To Stay Motivated On A Daily Basis
If you are at all like me, odds are that you wake up every morning and look for positives in life to help you stay motivated throughout the day. I mean, motivation and positivity are the foundations behind everything that we do in life. But too often, we allow one bad event or thought take every bit of motivation that we have, which leaves us constantly searching for the next little spark of motivation. We simply lose our mojo and wonder what it is that we can do to get it back. Well, I am here to help you maintain your motivation so that you aren’t constantly searching for that spark. Here is how to stay motivated on a daily basis.
Actually, I lied… Before I get into the tips, I want to say one thing. We all have dreams and goals in life. The fact that we have not achieved the dreams and goals should be motivating enough. If what we are currently doing in life is not getting us closer to achieving our dreams, then we are doing something wrong. We need to reestablish our goals, find a new approach, and work harder towards what it is that we want. Alright, sorry for getting sidetracked. Now let’s get into the ways of how to stay motivated on a daily basis.
Find A Passion
We all have things in life that excite us. Some of us might want to be athletes, others might want to be teachers, or maybe even become firefighters. Either way, ask yourself a question. If you could be anything that you wanted in the world, what would it be? What is that one thing that makes you happiest and provides you with a sense of joy? That is your passion. Now it just comes down to putting a plan in place to doing whatever it takes to achieve your passion.
Create A Vision
Once you have established your purpose in life, now you need to create a plan to turn your vision into a reality. Whatever you envision yourself doing in life, that is the ultimate end goal. Establish that long-term goal and create more attainable short term goals that are going to build up to the outcome. Build goals based on where you want to be after one month, one year, five years, ect. While focusing on the short-term goals, always make sure that the end goal is clear and precise.
Track Your Results
Reward is what is going to help you stay on track. This is a big reason in why you need short-term and long-term goals. Without short-term goals, we become doubtful over the course of time because we have not reached the desired outcome. With having short-term goals, we achieve smaller steps within the big picture. Achieving these smaller goals helps us to stay motivated to keep pushing forward, while providing enough motivation so that we do not give up.
Surround Yourself With Motivation & Inspiration
The easiest way to stay motivated is to surround yourself with as much motivation and inspiration as possible. Surround yourself with people who are going to motivate you, an environment that will help you maintain motivation, and ideas that mean something to you. The more motivated and inspired you are, the more likely you are to stay motivated. Put up a poster in your room saying “I CAN.” Every morning that you wake up and see it, the belief that you can will instantly be placed in your head.
Eliminate The Excuses
This one gets me fired up… You are the only person that can tell yourself no. Excuses are only going to put you farther away from whatever it is that you are trying to accomplish. When we make excuses, we are wasting time, and we are also establishing a mindset that we are not capable of success. Every second that we waste by is only putting us farther away from our dreams. Ignore the negativity of others, and focus on you. Keep your head high, work harder that you ever have before, and never give up. Turn one day into day one and start right now!
I can and I will. These are the affirmations that you need to believe in. The more that we believe in ourselves and the more that we tell ourselves that we can accomplish our goals, the more likely we are to actually do so. This goes off of surrounding yourself with motivation and inspiration. If you want to be positive, you need to surround yourself positivity. Feed off of the energy of others, and feed off of a positive mind. A happy mind leads to a happy life, so find your happiness and embrace it.
Reward yourself with not only the final goal, but each of the short-term goals as well. You deserve to be rewarded for every bit of effort that you are putting in to make your dreams become a reality. By rewarding yourself for all of these goals, you are establishing self-confidence in yourself and the reinforcement that you are worthy of success. By rewarding yourself for each short and long term goal that you achieve, you are going to have an easier time maintaining higher levels of motivation throughout the process.
A motivated mind leads to a motivated life. It is the catalyst that drives all of our emotions. It is what gets us up in the morning and it is what drives us to make it through out days. While some might find it easy to stay motivated, others might find it more difficult. One thing is certain though. If we want to pursue our dreams bad enough, we will stop at no ends until we achieve them. So use these tips on how to stay motivated on a daily basis, and do whatever it takes to achieve your dreams.
