If you believe that having a positive mindset is definitely the way to go. You’re meeting and greeting the world with a whole new positive attitude and your life is starting to show the signs already. Once your mind-set is positive this will naturally lead to self-motivation. Being positive and self-motivated really works!
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going” – Jim Rohn
1. Talk to get motivated
If you have a positive mind-set and are determined to achieve your goals then self-motivation is easier to achieve. It’s definitely the way to go. You’re meeting and greeting the world with a whole new positive attitude and your life is starting to show the signs already. Being positive really works!
One of my favourite ways to create energy and motivation is to talk. Once I tell my husband about the article I’m going to write, I’m out of my slump and back at the keyboard. For less inspiring tasks, talk about the larger goals it will help you achieve.
2. Stimulate your desire
Seeing their potential future motivates many to sign up for get-rich-quick plans. An inspirational person can make you feel motivated to do anything to make it real.
3. Stimulate your pain
One Neuro-Linguistic Programming technique is to mentally link pain with not acting. It is like when finally stop hitting that snooze button on the alarm, and get up because you think you might lose your job. Just imagine any bad consequences that may occur if you don’t do what you need to do.
4. Find a true interest
If you have no interest in what you are doing, it might mean you need to do something else. If it’s just a task you dislike, but it needs to be done, relate it clearly in your mind to the greater goal. I don’t like to drive, but I don’t have a motivation problem when I’m driving to the mountains for a vacation.
5. Boost your energy
You need energy for self-motivation. Coffee may help for a while, if caffeine doesn’t create other problems for you. Exercising and sleeping well help too. You should also watch out for sugary foods.
6. Take any small step
I’ve found if I commit to taking a small step towards your goals is a great self-motivation technique. To make this even easier, break larger goals down into small steps.
In order to get ahead, you must always be self-motivated. All the motivation in this world will not do anything for you unless you ACT NOW. Apply these steps and believe that these are practical and effective guidelines. The results will surprise you.
Along the way, count your blessings at every opportunity and be Grateful.
