How to Get Motivated

Do you feel like you need motivation?

Motivation is a powerful way to reach your goals. When you’re motivated, you can move mountains and feel like you’re on top of the world. Other times, when motivation is hard to find, you find yourself laying on the couch binging on your favorite show for hours (or days).

Learn about motivation

Unlike what many think, motivation is not something that you experience or don’t experience on a given day. Motivation is a skill you can learn, and there is a psychology behind it.   Here are nine tips to get motivated if you lose motivation.

1. Do ONE Thing, Have ONE Goal

When you’re trying to do different things at the same time, it can be hard to maintain energy and focus. Instead of setting goals, try to set one goal. You will become overwhelmed and lose motivation, as you can’t do it all. Working towards one goal is simpler. Put all your focus and motivation toward that one goal.

2. Know your WHY

One of the first steps to get yourself motivated is to know WHY you are doing something. If you value a habit or outcome in your life, you’re more likely to take action towards it.  When you know why you are doing something, you are motivated to spend your time learning more about it.

3. Start Small

When you want to start working towards something, start small. When you are taking on big tasks, you may feel overwhelmed and not even start at all. Set goals that are attainable and break them down. Schedule the first small step that you know you’re able to do, and get stuff done.

4. Schedule It

Most people widely underestimate how important it is to put your work on the calendar. A couple of examples in my life are: 1. When I get up, I work on my money mindset by stating money affirmations 2. Every morning I get up at 6 am without feeling tired, and I write until 8 am

5. Post It Somewhere

You can talk about it to friends and family. You can put it on your wall, on your screensaver, on your fridge, or your computer. Hang your goals around your house if you want to. It’s like a reminder of what you’re working on. Another great thing is to write it down in a journal. Make a schedule in a journal and color the days you completed your goal.
