“Motivation is an inside job.” I am sure you have heard that said many times. It really is a true saying. The keys to being motivated lie within your own mind. It is not other people pumping you up that is going to give you lasting motivation. Use these three keys to maintain high levels of motivation over long periods of time:
1-Get a big dream. To stay motivated you need to have a dream that matters greatly to you. When you possess a big dream you will be compelled to do the work in order to make it a reality in your life. It is easier to get fired up when you know you are working for something that matters a great deal to you. It is up to you to determine what that is. Take some time to reflect on what it is that you would like to have. Figure out what makes you happy. Determine what makes you excited when you think of the mere possibilities of obtaining it. Once you know what that dream is then you have a reason to stay motivated all the time.
2-Keep your dream in front of you. Focus in on your dream and maintain excitement about obtaining it at all times. Whether it is an actual photograph or it is a picture that you hold in your mind, keep that picture in front of you always. Think about it. Look at it. Imagine it. Act as if you already have your dream. What does it feel like? You need to harness those emotions. Those good feelings will propel you towards your dream. You will have no problem summoning motivation once you have a clear picture of what you want constantly on your mind.
3-Consistently do the work. Sometimes you may feel disappointments. Or you may get frustrated. You may even feel like it is taking too long to get the results that you want. I have an remedy for each of the emotional barriers that you are sure to face. I prescribe a four letter word spelled W-O-R-K. Work is actually therapeutic. When you do the proper work consistently it insulates you from procrastination, regret and hesitation. As you do the work you develop new skills. You also gain confidence. You develop a knowing within that you will have what you want because you are paying the price to get it.
