You know what needs done, but you just can’t seem to get in the mood to do it. All of us have felt this way, at one time or another in our lives.
So how do you find a way to get the motivation you need to complete your checklist or finish the goal you have been procrastinating? Well we have scoured our resources and found some great tips to help you do just that.
1. Get Your Heart Into It
You have to really want it. Seriously, whether it is that never-ending to do list, an exercise regiment, or finishing a goal you have dreamed of; your emotional commitment is a driving force toward your will to get motivated and stay motivated through completion.
There is truly power in positive thinking. Remind yourself daily that you can and will accomplish your goals. Celebrate milestones as you accomplish steps toward completing your goals. This will in turn continue to motivate yourself to finish.
Use a friend, co-worker, or colleague to hold yourself accountable. Positive reinforcement can be a great help in getting through hurdles and staying on task.
4. Start Small
Maybe you are not motivated because it all appears too daunting or overwhelming. Break it down and start small. Choose to just accomplish only one goal or milestone. This will allow you to focus all your energy and commitment on that one goal, increasing the likelihood you will complete it.
5. Reward Yourself
It is no easy task nowadays to avoid all the distractions going on around us and stay motivated to fully see something through. So when you do complete your goal or your to do list, celebrate it. Shout from the rooftops if you must. Belt out a big “Woohoo”. Remember, you do it. Yes you!
