How to stay Motivated

 

"Set a goal to achieve something that is so big, so exhilarating that it excites you and scares you at the same time. It must be a goal that is so appealing, so much in line with your spiritual core, that you can’t get it out of your mind. If you do not get chills when you set a goal, your not setting big enough goals." Bob Proctor

These Top 10 ways to stay motivated are a must, but can you stick to them?

  1) Plan ahead                                                                                        It stands to reason that you are much more likely to reach your goals if you plan properly.   Preparation is a key to success, so clear your cupboard of tempting treats, re-writing your shopping list, or memorise your activity schedule.  Once you have an agenda, you are much more likely to stick to it.

"Set higher standards for your own performance than anyone around you, and it won’t matter whether you have a tough boss or an easy one. It won’t matter whether the competition is pushing you hard, because you’ll be competing with yourself." Rick Pitino Basketball Coach, Author and Speaker

2) 

Track your  progress                                                         Keep an eye on how well you are doing. If you have completed a week of abstinence, for example, your pride in that accomplishment can help keep you going for another week.  everything from checking money saved.by not buying “goodies” or a regular weigh-in if you are trying to lose weight  can give you the motivation to continue.

Don’t live down to expectations. Go out there and do something remarkable." Wendy Wasserstein

3)                       

Find Inspiration                                                                              The internet is full of inspiring  articles written by people either on the same journey as you are, or who have achieved a similar goal, you just need to find them.  seek out online groups that share your goals and keep reading success stories, as they will keep you on track, if they can do it; You Can!

"People who say that life is not worthwhile are really saying that they themselves have no personal goals which are worthwhile… Get yourself a goal worth working for. Better still, get yourself a project… Always have something ahead of you to ‘look forward to’ – work for and hope for." Maxwell Maltz 1899-1975, Physician and Writer

4)Reward   Yourself                                                                              If you are trying to stop smoking, save the money you would have spent on cigarettes and buy yourself a treat at the end of the month.  you will find the money soon adds up.  If you are dieting allow yourself a cheat meal, that way you can give yourself something to look forward to every week and stop yourself feeling deprived.  If you are taking up a new activity or exercise, get the proper kit, if you look the part you will feel the part.

“Rewards are what you deserve for all the things you have done, will do and are grateful for, no matter what, the same can be said for the more you do for others is an even greater reward.”      Gray Lawrence

5) Post it                                                                                             Little reminders around the house will keep you on track..  It can be easy to forget your exercise schedule when you are stressed or busy, so write it on your calendar or create phone alert to remind you.  #if you are trying to eat healthy, stick a note on the fridge to remind you to stay away from the cheese!

Life Power Tip  What small step, toward that large goal, can you take today? Ninety per cent of any task is starting it. Ten minutes on a task begun soon turns into two hours on that same task. “The man who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.” –Chinese proverb

     6) Get Support                                                                                                    Tell your close friends and family how thy can help you stay  on track, they want you to succeed.  joining a local group of like minded people will also bring support and perhaps even some great new  friends .  If you are on  a social media, post your intentions,there may be others n your friend group who have similar goals.

From The Secret Daily Teachings                                                                    When you find your purpose, it is like your heart has been set alight with passion. You know it absolutely, without any doubt. May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne

7) Allow yourself to fail                                                                     To fail is to be human, well do it.  The most important thing to remember if, for example, you succumb to biscuits or have a cheeky glass of wine at dinner, is that tomorrow is a new day.  When you wake up give yourself a pep talk and start again.  You have not failed you have just wobbled!

Failure seems to be nature’s plan for preparing us for great responsibilities.
If everything we attempted in life was achieved with a minimum of effort and came out exactly as planned, how little we would learn — and how boring life would be! And how arrogant we would become if we succeeded at everything we attempted. Failure allows us to develop the essential quality of humility. It is not easy — when you are the person experiencing failure — to accept it philosophically, serene in the knowledge that this is one of life’s great learning experiences. But it is. Nature’s ways are not always easily understood, but they are repetitive and therefore predictable. You can be absolutely certain that when you feel you are being most unfairly tested, you are being prepared for great achievement.  Napoleon Hill

8)  Banish negative thoughts                                                                                   It’s important to believe in yourself if you are trying to break unwanted habits.  You will be surprised how much you can do when you put your mid to it.  think of times you have succeeded in other ways and visualise yourself reaching your goal.  You are stronger than you think.

Negativity
It is essential for you to encourage the positive emotions as dominating forces of your mind, and to discourage — and eliminate — negative emotions. – Napoleon Hill

9) Make lists                                                                                                           Break your goal down into small mile stones and take your eyes of the final prize.  If you are looking to meet new people, make a list of new places to go, and cross them off each week.  Enjoy the journey as much as the achievement.

“A list is only a list until what is written is with a purpose” – Gray Lawrence

10)  Keep it realistic                                                                                             Don’t overwhelm yourself with massive goals. If you are looking for a new partner don’t expect to be married by the end of the year, but focus on increasing your group of friends, you may meet someone special that way.  If you are starting new hobby, remember tat it will take a lot of practice before you are confident enough to really enjoy it. Be kind, don’t expect more of yourself than you would expect of someone you love!

Nothing really worth having is easy to get. The hard-fought battles, the goals won with sacrifice, are the ones that matter." —  Aisha Tyler

Happiness is a state of being, and comes from the inside of you. By the law of attraction you must become on the inside what you want on the outside. You are either choosing to be happy now, or you are making up excuses for not choosing to be happy. But there are no excuses for the law! May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne

3 Steps For Fearlessly Following Your Dreams

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

Michelle VandepasFollowing your passions, listening to your heart and soul’s purpose, and even throwing caution to the wind when following a whim can be great for spontaneous, inspired living. Too often, however, people take huge risks in the name of following their heart’s desire, without realistically addressing the risks and fears. In the pursuit of following our desires, we lose all semblances of common sense and just hope and dream that everything will work out.

Fear can often be our friend. It can be a useful tool to help us discern when we are unprepared – perhaps putting ourselves in financial or emotional danger. Fear can also run rampant, totally out of control without context if we don’t address it head on, and confront what we are really scared of.

Tapping into creativity and following one’s gut is paramount in building a successful business, but you’d better have a plan too. If you don’t, fear can come up and paralyze you, and rightly so. In business, fear is often an indicator that you are off track, that the extra expense wasn’t planned for, or that a customer isn’t going to pay.

I want to share a practical way to address your fears and the risks of following your dreams.

  1. When working on a new project, list all of your fears.
  2. Discern which ones are ‘real’. For example, maybe you think I won’t have enough money. Or No one will like what I have to offer.
  3. Address each fear with a plan of action. Maybe you save for three extra months or cut costs before venturing out. Or, perhaps you do a bit of test marketing to discover what your clients really want.

If you discover the fear is totally unfounded and it is a subconscious or pattern in your life, then you can find a way to ease your fears and start taking small daily steps to build up your confidence and calm the fears.

Perhaps you have a fear of starting your own business. That might be a a realistic fear with lots of real dangers – but if you’ve got strengths, talents, clients and expertise in your field, then you’ll have confidence to build from. (No clients yet? Go get just one. Nothing calms entrepreneurial fears like a paying client!)

It is amazing how a plan helps turn fear into butterflies – life plans built from excitement rather than from unnecessary worries.

When fear comes up to bite you in the face, don’t just turn your back on it, or just plow through and ‘do it anyway’. Take a step back for just a day or a moment, and determine what that fear, if anything, is trying to tell you. Then, when you’ve addressed the fear with a plan, you’ll discover it magically disappears. I call this following your heart, and using your brain!

“Love deeply and believe completely, speak truthfully and listen openly. Pray faithfully and act courageously, share passionately and sleep peacefully.”  – Anna Taylor

 

Dare to dream of your great success. Become intimate with those things which deeply motivate you and regularly work toward the realization of that mission.   ~Mary Anne Radmacher
