8 ways to motivate yourself

At times, we all get stuck in our own little ways. We get used to a certain situation, we have the same routine but we also have the feeling that we need a change in our lives. We keep postponing taking any actions, we try to avoid some thoughts and we end up feeling miserable with ourselves, thinking that there is not more to life than this and that we have reached a terrible dead end.

We all get this feeling but fortunately there are ways to overcome this situation.

1.     1.  Be prepared to avoid going to your “safe place”

A lot of people have a comfort zone and this is where they try to escape responsibilities or avoid delicate situations. In order to evolve and get rid of what is bothering yourself, you need to motivate yourself to forget about excuses and actually do something about it. Take some chances; you will have endless possibilities at your disposal, if you do that.

2.     2. Experience comes from trying

Everybody hates to fail. There is no doubt about it. But what`s the fun in taking chances only when you know that you can succeed? Even if you make some mistakes along the way, that will help you develop skills in identifying problems and making sure you won`t make the same mistake again.

3.    3.  Take things one at a time

We have many dreams and aspirations. Which is a good thing, but you must be aware of your limits, too. Set achievable goals and if you have more than one purpose in life; try focusing on doing one thing at a time till you reach what you wanted in the first place. Then go ahead and handle the second thing on your list.

4.    4.  The attitude matters

Have a positive attitude even if the odds are not in your favor. A positive attitude can motivate you and make you focus on the good parts and forget about the things that might go wrong when trying to achieve something.

5.     5.  Focus on yourself

Introspection can help you tremendously if you want to bring that inner motivation to life. Only by analyzing yourself and what you can accomplish, you will know exactly what steps you need to take in order to overcome your limits. You will know what things you need to improve and after you fix what is wrong, your self –confidence will help you maintain the motivation till you accomplish what you had in mind.

6.     6.  What about the present?

Don`t forget about the present! Most people seem to linger in the past, overwhelmed by good memories or they tend to imagine what would happen in the future; the present seems to be forgotten and that could have some serious consequences in your life. You might miss out on incredible opportunities so try to motivate yourself to focus on what happens right now.

7.    7.  Not smooth from the start? Try harder!

Don`t give up if things don`t go your way from the start. Nobody has achieved something by trying just once. You need to stay focused on your goals and keep on trying till you succeed. That is the secret to success, never giving up and fighting for your dreams.

8.     8.  Don`t compromise!

 

Don`t settle for goals that are easier to achieve. The easy way doesn`t mean it is the right way for you. If your dreams are big, that means you want to do something in your life and why not give it a go? You only live once.
