09 TIPS TO STAY MOTIVATED
1.SET YOUR GOALS: Setting your goal is quite important. Be precise while setting your goal because this helps you to measure your achievement. Maria Moraca said once that when you feel things overwhelming, then get back for just few moments and remind yourself that why you chose that path . Was there any special reason behind it? Was that for the reason that will give you long-term happiness and have any other long term plan. This thinking of yours will help you to clarify your goals and make them achievable and realistic. Setting your goal helps your mind to focus on a target, rather than wasting energy in shooting aimlessly. It gives you something to focus on and put 100% of your effort into it and this focus is what gives you MOTIVATION.
“If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time” BY ZIG ZIGLAR.
2.BREAK YOUR GOALS INTO SMALL PIECES: When you start making more important and major goals, and you know that they will take time to accomplish, then its must for you to break your goals into pieces because if you are not going to do this then it will seem overwhelming, and will cause you to procrastinate and avoid working on it.
For example, your goal is to loose 50 pounds weight and its hard job to be done within days so you set your goal for 5 months which will divide 10 pounds on each month further divided 2 lbs a week. So now you see the importance of breaking goals. Firstly, it was looking quite shocking that how will you loose 50 pounds weight! But breaking your goal into pieces made it manageable and achievable and you are still motivated and not loosing hope. This method can make hard tasks to be done in easiest and simple ways.
3.STOP ASSUMING MONEY TO MOTIVATE YOU: KAREN STRUNKS; a motivational trainer once said: “Many people think money alone will be enough to motivate them, and whilst that may do so initially, it’s very hard to sustain financial motivation if the work you are doing actually drags. If you do that type of work for long enough you will find that no amount of money is worth swapping parts of your life in activities that aren’t aligned with who you are and what truly is your passion and mission in life.” So what you need to do is to be true to yourself and work hard to achieve your goals.
4.MAKE IT FUN: Find physical and sport activities for yourself. Enjoy doing workouts. Join different clubs like volleyball, football etc. Your physical activity must be fun loving and healthy and should not be boring because it helps your mind to stay motivated. Fun loving healthy physical exercises teach you the lesson of motivation. Researches have found that sitting idle for long hours have bad influence on your health and you become lazy and lethargic and are no more motivated towards any of your goal. If you are motivated towards these things to do than you will also be motivated towards other goals of your life. These small term plans will help you to look forward to long term plans.
5.BE CONSISTENT: KAREN STRUNKS said: “Take consistent action every single day.” It means that if you are not in mood of doing something, then just try to do the little part of your goal. Staying motivated is within your reach. Its all just about keeping your goal in your mind and breaking it to make it manageable. Don’t sit idle if you are not in mood; instead of doing larger part of it do a smaller part. Being consistent is the key to success.

6.BE FLEXIBLE: A time comes when you are too busy to make your work done and you are simply just tired of your hectic routine; then the best way is to take a day or two off. Be calm with yourself if you really think that you need a break. The important thing is that you must return back to your work as soon as possible. It’s the person’s mentality, that when you return back after a short break, you become more active, motivated, determined and enthusiastic towards your work. Its the key to keep yourself motivated in long run. When you really think that you are slipping off your track, then have a review of these tips 😉
7.GIVE YOURSELF REWARD: Its important to reward your self after the success of your work to stay more motivated and energetic. The feeling of relief and excitement is what that fuel you, when you feel like you are not having mood to work. This self visualization gives you more courage to work on more harder task and feel proud of your self.

8.HAVE POSITIVE INFORMATION: If you have uplifting and inspiring information with yourself, then you will stay motivated. In your life you must have some reminders that will help to remind you that you are capable of achieving your goal. For example, some people are habitual of reading and this habit has positive impact on their lives and boost them and up their motivation level. Pierce said: “If you fill your mind with uplifting and inspiring information, it will keep you motivated. Go to the bookstore or library today and find at least one book on a positive topic that will give you a boost. You need constant reminders telling you that you are capable of achievement.”
9.TAKE CONTROL OVER THINGS: There’s a time when everything is under your control and then the time comes when its not, You need to realize that why is it so. Don’t become so much emotional on this that you start forgetting achieving your goal and it paralyzes your progress too. Things don’t stay same forever. You just need to do is to stay calm and motivated and handle your own actions and reactions. Always work for the things that are in your hands and leave rest of the things on our fate.
