How Do I Motivate Myself to Stay Motivated?

How Do I Motivate Myself

Making a decision to achieve success is not enough. Many do so, but they do not back their decision with action.

It is so easy and pleasant to daydream, watch programs on TV about celebrities and follow them on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. This might be sweet, but it will not make you successful.

To achieve success you need to act. You need to do things. You need to follow through with your decisions, even if it is difficult and inconvenient and you need leave your comfort zone.

You need to motivate yourself constantly, until motivation become a habit.

Decisions and plans need to be backed by strong desire and strong ambition, steady motivation, and perseverance. You have to keep your goal constantly in your mind, and avoid negative thoughts and doubts about your ability to achieve your goal. To do so, you need a constant supply of motivation.

We read about successful and rich people and want to be like them. A weak desire is not enough. It must be burning desire that is not stopped by obstacles and by failures.

Almost every successful person experienced failure and rejection, but they found the inner strength to rise above them and continue trying.

Many try to reach far, but only the ones who do not give up win.

What do you choose, to be on the ranks of those who:

  • Only daydream.
  • Try, fail, and quit.
  • Go all the way, despite obstacles, fears and failures.

Positive Thinking
One of the most important keys to motivation is positive thinking. Do not underestimate it. It does the job.

Another important key that I often use is affirmations. Just find or compose a positive sentence that inspires and motivates you and repeat it whenever you need to brace yourself.

Motivational Music

Listening to motivational music can do wonders. It can boost your feelings and energy levels, and makes you desire to act and do things.

Different music is suitable for different people, and therefore, it is you, who need to find out what kind of music motivates you.

Some might like rock music and others pop music, some might like country songs, and others, concerts or quiet music.

Each day, find the time to listen to music that motivates you, and then use the energy and zest it gives you to work on your goals.

Speaking of motivational music, I would like to share you with you a video with a song by a group of three young Italian singers with gorgeous voices, called “Il Volo”.
