In the first of a series of articles, we’ll dive deep into the subject of motivation : specifically, we’ll give you tips on how to get motivated and how to stay motivated, all necessary if you hope to reach your end game goal.
Let’s jump in with our first two power tips on how to get motivated.
Motivational tip 1: Keep it simple silly
Notice how we said ‘goal’ in the introduction above, rather than ‘goals’. This is the perfect segue to our first motivational tip: keep your list of goals short. Really short. If you have too much going on in your life, with multiple goals spread out in all areas, you may be trying to do too much. If that’s the case, you’re more likely to sap your energy and become unfocused rather than achieve your targets. One of the more common mistakes people make is simply taking on too much. Our strong suggestion is to start with one goal, or maybe two at most. Choose your priority goal and put all of your focus on that. Once you achieve it, move onto the next one. And the next. Rinse and repeat.
Motivational tip 2 : Don’t wait for inspiration to knock on your door
If you wait for inspiration to come a knockin’, you may have a long wait ahead of you. Instead, find inspiration. Go out there and network with others that have achieved what you want to achieve, or are actively trying to achieve it. Read their blogs and success stories. You’ll quickly find how quickly gleaning inspiration from others will inspire you.
