If you are like most people, there will be times in your life when you need help to stay motivated. Sometimes you may only need a little motivation and at other times you may feel like you need all the motivation in the world. No matter what kind of motivation you need here are 3 keys to help you stay motivated.
1. Read or watch something that will inspire and motivate you.
It’s good to be able to read or watch something that shows you that other people, just like you, have had rough times in their life but that they just keep pressing on and in the end they came out victorious. Many times you will find the inspiration, motivation, or even the key that will help you achieve your goals and dreams in life.
2. Seek advice or counsel.
Sometimes all you need is to get the advice or counsel from someone. At times just a word of encouragement from a friend will do. At other times you may need to seek someone out who has achieved something similar to what you are trying to achieve and ask them what sort of obstacles they faced and how they overcame them. You will be amazed how much this can motivate you.
3. Write things down.
This may seem strange but I encourage you to try it. By writing down how you are feeling and what you are going through, it allows you to clear your head to be able to think clearer. Many times while you are writing the very thing that you need to help you get past your slump will pop into your head. Writing your thoughts on paper or a laptop is a great way to clear you head, relieve stress, and find the motivation that you need.
