Right now, don’t worry as you are about to discover the tips to stay motivated and have more done.Motivation is what gets things started. Without motivation, you will never want to work on your dreams. Without motivation, you will procrastinate and never produce any results in your life. Thus, you need the motivation to get things move. Below are the ways how you can create motivation.
Pep-talk is one of the easiest methods you can use to get motivated. Most people are not motivated and procrastinate on doing their tasks because they talk to themselves in a negative way. They tell themselves that they are too tired, they don’t know how to do it or they can just delay the task.If you talk to yourself this way, trust me, you will never get motivated to do what you need to get done. In sports, you can see that the athletes will gather in a circle and motivate each other before the match starts. That is an example of a pep-talk. Hence, talk to your self-positivity to move on. Sometimes you just need to tell yourself, “Yes I can do it.”
Listen to uplifting music
Music can lift us up. It has happened to everyone, regardless of who you are. When you are in a romantic restaurant, they would use romantic songs and music to enhance the environment. When you are in a business seminar, they will use fast-paced music to drive you.Even when you are watching a movie, the background music actually contribute a lot to create the desired effect and ambiance. So use music to motivate yourself. When you feel like no motivation, listen to songs that will drive you and music that uplift you.
Revisit your purpose
Your purpose and your reason for what you do will drive you. If you don’t feel motivated to do the things you set out to do, probably it is because your reason is not strong and emotional enough.It is difficult to quit smoking. Until one day the health becomes an issue only then people have a strong and emotional reason to stop smoking. So always revisit your purpose. When you know exactly why you want to do something, nothing can stop you.
Break it down
A huge task is difficult to tackle. Imagine if you need to write a section of a book of 10 pages, would you feel overwhelmed? Most likely you will feel overwhelmed. The easiest way to get motivated is to break the task into smaller items that you can act upon right away.Ask yourself, What is the one small thing that I can do right now? And start doing it immediately. For instance, you can just write one single paragraph. And when you do, you will create the momentum and wanted to write more.
Motivation through fear
Imagine 3 years down the road and you are still right where you are, accomplishing nothing, is this the kind of life you want to have? Most people never feel a pinch when they think short term about procrastination. They prefer to watch TV and check out Facebook than to work on their dreams.
