Motivation is such a force, it gives us the courage to move forward, achieve our goals, work hard, and achieve dreams. Although motivation helps us to stay focused on our goal, it is also very important to know how we stay motivated?
The fact is that when you plan your goal, you are full of zeal and enthusiasm. But it’s hard to keep your head up with each passing day. and finally, it ends soon. So here we are discussing how to motivate ourselves. And what are the ways to stay motivated?
Success stories and inspiration that connect us
When you read an inspiring story that you feel connected to, you read it more attentively and put yourself in character. Sometimes it happens that we find a particular success story very close to us, as it coincides with our own struggle. But are we really ready to act to get success? leave the comfort and work hard to get what we want? Unless we turn our motivation into action, we will not achieve what we want.
Motivation lies in action, not in comfort. Whenever you read motivational books about successful people or watch inspirational videos, it will keep you stuck for a few hours or maybe a few days. But with each passing day, when your intensity to fuel motivation decreases, you finally find yourself where you started from.
“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone” – Neale Donald Walsch
Motivation is like something that adds a spark to fuel.
Sometimes you need motivation every now and then to get started, however, the motivation will never last long, it will fade in the next few days. Motivation is a continuous process to keep going.
“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going”
You become demotivated by setting the wrong goals
You become discouraged when you set unattainable goals. For example, Jack wants to become an astronaut, however, he is not good at studies. But he promised to work hard in his studies. With each passing day, his self-motivation diminishes as he discovers that he has more and more skills to lean. And even after doing all of that, only a few lucky people can get a chance to go into space. After only focusing on how difficult it is to get to space, his attention shifted and he realized that he had set a goal that is unreasonable and even if he studies hard, there is no guarantee that he will be lucky enough to get to space. then he gives up.
be passionate about your goal, but always be willing to work hard to achieve it. And most importantly, set a goal that tests your ability and is achievable. You cannot set a goal that a human being can’t achieve. so be practical.
