Lots of us – MOST of us? ALL of us? – feel like we need a motivation injection from time to time. In fact, personal motivation is often cited as a huge factor in failure of every sort.
Pain, whether physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, is a super strong force for change …
Getting really crappy grades can make us understand that we need to study …
Debts remind us of our inability to create and generate enough incomes …
Being humiliated gives us the ‘push’ to speak up and fight for ourselves …
Perhaps your motivation will increase with a miserable experience, a friend’s tragic story, a great movie, or an inspiring book. But with the countless negativities in the world how do we stay motivated? If you feel like you have no motivation in some important areas of your life, experiment with our "motivation tips" below.
Achieve your dreams. Babies are born believing in their ability to achieve just about anything, but that belief is programmed out of us. You, too, were once a baby and can do anything you set your mind to. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, " The future belongs to people who have confidence in the beauty of their dreams."
Believe in yourself, your strength and courage. They’re there – even if you don’t know it or believe in those powerful qualities.
Consider everything in your life from every angle and aspect. Motivation derives from determination. To be able to understand life, you ought to feel the sun from every side.
Don’t abandon your dreams and goals and never, never, never give up. Thomas Edison failed hundreds of times before he figured out how to make a light bulb. Have YOU failed hundreds of times before giving up?
Enjoy yourself. Work as if you don’t need money. Dance as if nobody’s watching. Love as if you never cried. Learn as if you’ll live forever. Motivation happens when people are content.
Family and friends are life’s greatest treasures so never lose sight of what it’s all about
Give more than "enough". Just getting by is a shabby waste of a life.
Hang on to your dreams – they will be your driving force.
In a world where people often are envious and jealous of the success of others, ignore this toxic view of life. Wish success on everyone because the more you do that, the more success YOU will have.
Just be yourself. The attempt to please everyone is doomed. Being a fake is exhausting and will ultimately fail.
Keep trying no matter how hard life may seem. When an individual is motivated, eventually she WILL find her way.
Learn to enjoy your self. Otherwise, what’s the point of accomplishing anything?
Make things happen. Motivation is when your dreams are put into work clothes.
Never lie, cheat or steal. Always play a fair game. Self hatred is the blossom of cheating and it’s a poisoned plant.
Open your eyes and see what’s actually going on in the world. There are 10,000 reasons for joy (actually, that’s not true – there are an infinite number of reasons for celebration.)
Practice makes perfect. Practice is about motivation. It lets us constantly improve and thus turn our mistakes into triumphs.
Quitters never win. And winners never quit. Yeah, yeah, I know it’s a cliche – but the thing is that it’s a true cliche!
Resolve to be as prepared as possible. It wasn’t raining when Noah build the ark.
Try brining some self discipline into your life because it jives perfectly with motivation. Both are key components of self improvement.
Understand others. Yearn to first understand first and then to be understood.
Visualize your goals. Motivation without vision is like a boat on a dry land.
Want "it" with all your heart. Dreaming means believing.
X Factor: this is what will make you different from the others. Yes, you have hidden skills and talents that you don’t have a clue about and you don’t want to die with those gifts lying dormant and neglected.
You are unique. No one in this world looks, acts, or talks just like you. Value your life and existence, because you’re only here once. Yes, the majority of the people on this planet believe in reincarnation, but even if they’re right, the "next you" will be different from the current you.
Zero in on your dreams and try for it!!!
If you took each one of these motivation tips and practiced it for one week, at the end of those six months your personal motivation would so soar that you would never again feel the need for motivation.
