Do you start things with the best intentions and full of motivation to achieve your goal be in your personal life or at work but then find you lack the motivation you need to keep going and finish what you set out to do – or even start?
Or you try again and ‘this time’ you will do it? Reading or listening to motivational CD’s and books, scheduling that time into your diary and/or having your own Life Coach is a great way to stay motivated but how can you stay motivated all the time?
Here are the 3 key factors a person needs to stay motivated:
1. Monitor your progress –
Before you start any new goal write down exactly where you are now. If it’s exercise, note the frequency, duration, endurance, strength, your weight, size etc. Relationship, how you’re communicating, time spent together, fights etc. Business, you have no business yet just the idea and get up and go to start one. As you go along keep note of your achievements.
2. Celebrate your success –
Too often people are too hard on themselves, they think because they haven’t reached their goal yet or are perfect they can only see how they’ve failed or how far they still have to go. If you are feeling this way check out how far you’ve actually already come from where you were in the beginning! Then treat yourself when you’ve achieved mini milestones with something you like doing such as having a massage, seeing a movie, special dinner or simply a day off!
3. Remind yourself WHY you’re doing it -
This I think is the absolute biggest motivator! What is the purpose of you achieving this goal and what will it mean to you / those around you once you have achieved it? Ask yourself what will it mean if I DON’T achieve this goal?
When you stop and ask yourself these questions and remind yourself just what it means to you – you should have all the motivation you need. Things that can inhibit motivation can be; not believing in yourself, lots of excuses or just laziness.
Ensure you have first set realistic and achievable goals and then never forget that believing in yourself is one of the most important factors of success.
If you’re using excuses as why you can’t or don’t want to achieve your goal anymore take a good hard look at what those excuses are and ask yourself are they really relevant or am I just justifying?
If you’re being lazy – get up and JUST DO IT!
You’ll be much happier after you have done it than if you carry around I should have done it.. or your unfulfilled goals. -The JinaLife Executive Coaching Staff
