The alarm clock rings and all you want is to stay in bed all day watching series. Yet, there are also days when it looks like you’ve eaten a lion. You know those times when you just feel like you’re growing wings and you’re ready to take care of whatever comes your way.
It’s all about motivation. In order to achieve things and accomplish your goals, you need to find and nurture that motivation. Follow the guide!
Cultivate good humor
We are used to thinking that we have to motivate ourselves in life to get to do things and that once we have accomplished them, we feel happy. In reality, it is exactly the opposite, it is our mood that influences our motivation. It is when you feel a strong emotion, preferably positive, that you are most motivated. The most effective motivation is happiness. When you’re happy, you can accomplish anything.
How can you use this to your advantage? It’s simple: go in search of these emotions. Spend time with the people who make you happy. Do things that make you happy. Engage in productive and enjoyable activities. It can be meditation, music, crafts, or sports!
To be able to distribute the objectives over time, take a personal assessment: What are your strengths and weaknesses at the moment? This will allow you to assess what is in line with your current potential. Every step you take in this direction is a step towards the results you want to achieve.
All steps are important and none should be skipped or overlooked. When you know where you are going and what you want to accomplish, motivation becomes (almost) natural. Be proactive rather than waiting for opportunities to come your way.
Visualize your best dream every day
Imagine all the sensations you could feel when you reach your goal. Put your heart into it, this moment of pleasure is very important because it develops your motivation and allows your subconscious to put in place the actions necessary for your success.
Associate the others
Research has shown that peer pressure is beneficial for children. And you, you are a child pretending to be an adult. So the best thing you can do is surround yourself with people who share your goals. For example, those who want to improve their state of health change considerably when they join associations because it is easier to share your fight rather than to lead it alone
Look for small wins
Another way to recharge your motivation is to get small wins. The reward system is probably the most effective way since it affects your mood. The most motivating thing is to have results. When you have accumulated a number of small improvements, you will have the feeling of moving forward. It will only motivate you more.
