For a long time I struggled with lack of motivation. I intended to do one thing, but every time something intervened/came up and I could not carry that thing to the end. Well, if I think about it, I was mostly to blame, because I always found something that distracted me from the goal I had set and that was wrong. Over time, I learned to find a balance and put my priorities first in order to become the best version of myself. If you want to know how I stay motivated, read more.
Here are some things that helped me not to lose my motivation:
1.Do something that really makes you happy
I tried to get to know myself better and learn what things I enjoy and what I don’t. When you do something you love, motivation comes naturally. If you are not passionate about what you do, you will be bored, and the motivation will not exist. You’ll never experience lack of motivation if you follow your passion.
Most of the time I set not only long-term goals but also short-term ones. Why? Because the moment you are able to reach your goal faster, victory will make you want even more. This will give you even more motivation to achieve long-term goals. I’m the type of person who writes down her goals and also puts them in plain sight. Either I stick them around my room or I put a screenshot with them on my phone screen. Yes, it sounds weird, but it works.
3.Commit to the goal
Even if you have experienced failure in the past, continue and do not think about past failures or the possibility of failing again. You have to take risks in order for succes to come. Yes, you may fail, but there is also the chance that you will succeed in doing what you set out to do. So, be optimistic.
I think we all like to be rewarded after working hard, don’t we? For example, I rewarded myself every time I managed to make something – I bought pizza or something sweet. Find a reward you like and give it to you after you have completed a task.
Every time you struggle to stay motivated, think about what Collin Powell said: „There are no secrets to succes. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learing from failure.”
