If you are wondering how to being your self-motivation, here are a few great provided by Life Optimizer to effectively motivate yourself:
• Have a cause
A cause that you care strongly about can motivate you to do some seemingly impossible things. So, whenever you feel the need of a fresh dose of motivation, you can always go to your cause to give you a healthy dosage.
• Have a big dream
Having a dream is having something to shoot for. But, it can’t just be any dream. It has to be big enough to challenge you, yet small enough to stay in the realistic zone.
• Be Hungry
There is a big difference between desire and hunger. Desire is a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing something to happen. Having hunger for something is to have a strong craving for it. You just can’t be without it. If you only have desire, you do not want it bad enough. How do you become hungry? Connect with your big dream and cause. Let them inspire you to be hungry.
• Run your own race
Never compare yourself to others. It will only discourage you. The only real competitor you have is yourself. Are you being the best you can be?
• Take one more step
When the obstacles feel like too much, and it’s difficult to move on, take one more step. It is important to have the courage to move on. Don’t think about the obstacles ahead, just take the next step.
• Let go of the past
The best discourager is your past. The past can be a heavy burden that drags you down before you even notice. Let it go. The past is over and you can’t do anything about it. Just focus on the future. It is so much brighter.
