How to Be Self Motivated

Being Self-motivated means being ready to accept the things around you. You have to be sharp and smart enough and open yourself for positive learning. Being in this state of mind is the challenge!

Step 1- Get positive

It’s pretty challenging when you think like, “Ugh! It’s raining”.

If you find yourself thinking negative thoughts, stop yourself — you have the power to say “Stop. Enough.” and not finish the thought. Divert your attention somewhere else, rather than just thinking.

Always try to reframe the negative things into a positive manner, rather than thinking “Ugh! It’s raining”. Think Oh WOW! It’s raining, the climate is so good, I don’t have to water the plants and a Yard today!!

Step 2 – Get confident

With the positive thinking you have to be positive for yourself as well as for the people around you.

To be Confident, count your successes. Start counting what you have achieved? Whatever you have done in the past and that was Awesome? And Start thinking whatever you have achieved was your past and think of what you want to achieve now.

Step 3 – Develop Small goals

Developing the long term goals takes time. Rather develop the short term goals and work on it. Or also can break the goals like Instead of “I want to lose 50 pounds” think of something like “I want to lose 2 pounds this week”. These will bring similar results what you actually want to achieve.

Step 4 – Don’t be afraid of making mistakes

Don’t be afraid of making mistakes. Mistakes happen only when you are getting better. If you remember “Humans are the only ones who make mistakes”. Technically, mistakes are a good thing.

It’s too easy to make one, feel like we’re so behind there’s no point in trying anymore and just stop. But if you tell yourself it’s not an option, it won’t happen. Failing doesn’t matter — getting back on the horse is all that does.

Step 5 – Track your progress

Every human has different goals in their lives, which may relate to personal life, professional career, education, social, any activities or hobbies. Make sure to track your behaviors and their results. Not only do you need the results to look at and go, “Gee! I am awesome! Look at what I did!” you’ll need the results to see what does and does not work for you.

Step 6 – Do what you enjoy×2160-768×432.jpg

Most of us have lots of work to do in our daily routine. And sometimes we don’t want to do the things we don’t like at all. Eg-: We always like to play games, sing, listen music etc. and few are the things we don’t like at all like workouts, waking up early in the morning.

So if you don’t want to work out go for the activity like swimming that burn the calories and so on. Manage the activities and set them the way you enjoy.

Step 7 – Have a motivated group around you

This one is pretty straightforward: we need reminders to keep ourselves going. These can be people or things — whatever might keep you in the right mindset. It’s natural to get off-balance and forget where we want to be — these external motivators offer focus and direction.

People can be motivators, too! Tell everyone you know that you’re trying to lose 10 pounds. Hopefully they’ll offer resources and make the path that much easier for you.

Step 8 – Help others

When you’re nearer to your goals, you’ve learned a lot from your work along the way. Use this knowledge to help others! Not only will it motivate you, but it will motivate them. Don’t you wish you had someone to help you along your way?

Have you lost some weight, gotten your business started, or aced that test? Use what you know to help someone else and, better yet, drill it into you. Just like studying out loud and reciting your facts to someone else helps your understanding, helping someone else will keep you focused and feeling good about your progress. Keep helping and Stay Motivated!!
