How To Stay Motivated

'Motivation' іѕ tо give reason, incentive, enthusiasm, оr interest thаt саuѕеѕ а specific action оr a certain behavior. Some people dismissively remark 'ugh....I have no motivation.' But that really isn't the case. Motivation іѕ present іn еvеrу life function. Simple acts ѕuсh аѕ eating аrе motivated bу hunger. But I think what we're talking about is the motivation to rise to new challenges or overcome current one. Right?

So first and foremost, the point of this video is not to simply define the word 'motivation'. We're talking about 'our motivation'. Or Self-motivation and this can only come from inside ourselves. Why? Because motivation as it is applied is an internal force that drives individuals to act.

Second, you must have a big enough 'reason why' in order to feel motivated. Your reason must provide you a 'meaningful motive'. It can be useful to look for a reason that's bigger than yourself. For example, I've observed that if you have a job you dislike and have no children, it's easier to desire to quit or cavalierly say 'I hate my job and don't care if I get fired'. But that perspective dramatically changes if you have little ones to cloth, feed and shelter. The job that you hate becomes the financial stability you need to take care of your own. Hence, a task that you may not necessarily love to do, but your dedication to your family motivates you to stay the course. Thereby, giving you a reason why.

Third, you need to believe that your goal is attainable. Either that or your fear must be so great that you will try anyway. Without this fear or belief self -motivation is difficult to maintain. Given that you probably don't want to live with feelings of dread, let's take a look at belief. You can start by looking for evidence within yourself that you can achieve your goal. You can then back this up by seeking support from friends, family, mentors and role-models.

If you feel like everyone tells you to stay motivated. Everyone in your life all say to you 'keep going, don't quit.' Your probably one who asks "Why? Why try my hardest when it ends in disappointment? Why go through something when it's going to hurt? Why?"

Because you can't accomplish anything that you give up on. Disappointments and failures happen to everyone. The difference between those who reach their goals and those who don't is the willpower to stay motivated. If you're motivated, you'll keep going. If you keep going, eventually you'll reach your goal. It may take years....but you'll get there. How did it feel after that first jog around the block? Or when you finally walked the stairs at work without losing your breath? The more you accomplish, the more self-esteem you'll gain and the more you'll believe in your potential.

Honestly....one of the best motivators is the simple act of making progress. It is powerful. But you can never achieve what you are unwilling to pursue. In fact, sometimes we get into such a slump that even thinking about making positive changes seems too difficult.

But it's not hopeless. It is never hopeless. With some small steps, baby ones in fact, perhaps motivated by one of the suggestions in this video.. you can get started down the road to positive change. I believe in you. It's time for you to start believing in yourself.
