Top tips for Self Motivation!

While self motivation may be easy for some, it can be difficult for others.  Many people find themselves in a rut that they can’t get out of, finding it hard to be driven in order to complete tasks or overcome challenges. However, luckily there are tools that can enable you to become more determined and self motivated in all areas of your life!

 

Never give up
You will undoubtedly make mistakes, however the most important thing to remember is to not give up!  Learn from your mistakes and failures, taking away new and valuable knowledge.  Failure is a part of success in life.

“Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm” – Winston Churchill

Only compare you to YOU
Not every person is the same.  Everyone has different goals, wants and paths they go down in life.  By comparing yourself to others you are comparing two different individuals, situations and ideas, therefor making yourself feel worse in the end.  Understand that people’s journeys take different turns and have different time schedules.  Compare you to you and what you have achieved personally and track your own progress.

” Comparison is the death of joy” – Mark twain

Get outside of your comfort zone!
A real way to boost your motivation is to take yourself out of your comfort zone.  This can be intimidating for most, as you are doing something you don’t do often, or at all!  However you can gain a real sense of achievement, as well as a confidence boost, which is hugely important when staying motivated.

 

Give yourself goals
Set goals for yourself and plan ways to achieve them.  Write them down, write them on post it notes, put pictures of them on your wall or any other way you can think of to remind yourself of them and why you are doing what you’re doing.  This will help you stay focused and on track with what you need to do.

 

Keep positive!
This one is easier said than done, however try and stay as positive as you can. Although it may seem like all the bad luck and rejections keep happening to you, it’s important to try and keep moving forward.  Keeping a positive attitude is key if you’re wanting to achieve anything in life, as you determine your own reality – It’s all in the power of positive thinking!
