How To Motivate Yourself Every Day To Achieve The Success You Deserve
"I'm seeking a lesson in self-motivation."
"How do I motivate myself to do more and be better?"
"I've tried every possible way to motivate myself. Help!"
"I know I can be successful. I need to light a fire under my butt."
How do you motivate yourself? Do you get it from external factors?
If so, does it work and how long does it last?
Unfortunately, external motivation has an expiration date.
When you look at a successful person, you feel motivated by their success. But what happens when they are out of sight, or you fail to achieve similar success to them overnight? It expires.
Luckily, there are certain strategies you can apply in order to motivate yourself from within!
Incorporate the following five exercises as part of your daily routine.
Love the person in the mirror.
Every morning provides the opportunity for you to accept who you are! It's absolutely important to love who you are and what you've become. That's the first step in being self-motivated.
Do you love yourself?
Accept your stage in life.
Believe that you're exactly where you should be at every moment. Your ability to accept that things happen in their own time will make you comfortable with what you've already achieved.
Where are you in your life?
Surround yourself with positive energy.
Positive energy can come from the things you choose to do. It can also come from the people you surround yourself with. When you're surrounded by positive energy, you can't help but maintain positivity!
How can you add positivity to your day?
Help others from the goodness of your heart.
Avoid helping for personal gain or recognition. When you help others and see the positive impact, you naturally feel better about yourself.
How big is your heart?
Focus on smaller goals.
Reaching for and missing broad, unrealistic goals can be very de-motivating. When you're unreasonable with your capabilities, you end up feeling disappointed when you miss the mark.
What baby steps can you start taking today?
Approach your daily life in the same way a pro sports player approaches training.
What are your goals for today?
What can you achieve when you hit each target?
What will you focus on when you’re ready to give up?
You must be your biggest supporter.
Because, in order for others to believe in you, you must believe in yourself first! Tell yourself when you wake up each morning that you are worth every ounce of success that comes your way.
