For example, when you begin new training program or want to achieve a certain goal, you should be ready to move at full speed. A person should be full of self – esteem and enthusiasm that doesn’t know the limits and he should believe that he can do anything. But, when you are bursting with energy and positive thought, and you think that the world is yours, sustain! Don’t let yourself do something wrong because you should start slowly and during the time increase the pace. Every new day should be your new goal.
There are days where you won’t want to do anything useful; you would just want to lay in bed for the whole day. But, the first rule of motivation would be: just begin.
And everything else would come naturally. When you are sitting at home and thinking about how hard it can be, then it will be hard until you begin.
If you have some the commitment towards your family, friends, business partner, then be responsible towards those people and respect them. In that way, you will show them how important they are to you, and they will recognize your motivation to succeed.
Replace negative thought with positive
This is one of the most important motivational skill, and you should practice it every day.
Begin to follow the flow of your thought and detect negative conversations. You should try to detect your every negative thought that comes to your head.
Then, after few days begin the next stage, suffocating those thoughts. When something goes through your mind, for example: “this is too hard”, you should always say: “I can do this.”
Think about advantages
Most people have the same problem, thinking about how something is hard. For example, getting up early seems too hard. If you just think about that, it will make you tired and sleepy. But, instead of thinking how hard it is, think about all the advantages, for example, if you get up early, you will have more free time.
Feel the excitement again
Think about the reasons that drained your excitement, then think about reasons that led you to that excitement in the first place. Can you repeat that? What made you go toward that goal and why are you so passionate? Try to repeat that again, focus and charge your batteries.
Read about motivation
When you lose motivation, just read some book or article which has the same subject as your goal. From some reason, reading helps you to stay in focus and to be motivated. So read about your goal every day, if that’s possible, especially if you have a lack of motivation.
Find friends who think alike
It’s hard to stay motivated when you are alone. But, but if you find someone who has the same goal as you, you will feel more relaxed. You will have someone to share opinions and hard moments when they come.
