Who needs Tony Robbins when you can motivate yourself? For you, it’s always good to have a library of motivational boosters to move along.
Whether you’re starting a buisiness, trying to los weight or breaking a bad habit, you can learn how to motivate yourself with different techniques.
Despite your best efforts and habits you can fail. In that case, it’s time to find whatever emotional pump-up you can use.
- Develop a mantra
Find a few statements that focus your mind and motivate you. It doesn’t matter whether they are pulled from a tacky motivational poster or just a few words to tell you what to do.
- Move around
Get your body moving as you would if you were extremely motivated to do something. This ‘faking it’ approach to motivation may seem silly but it works.
- Find the next step
If it seems impossible to work on a project for you, you can try to focus on the next immediate step.
- Find your itch
What is keeping you from working? Are you unmotivated because you feel overwhelmed, tired, afraid, bored? Maybe it is because you aren’t sure you have time?
- Get a partner
Find someone who will motivate you when you’re feeling lazy. May be friend you go to the gym with. Having a friend can help motivate you to work hard when you’d normally quit.
- Be careful with the small problems
The worst killer of motivation is facing a seemingly small problem that creates endless frustration.
