10 Tips on How To Get Motivated and Keep Motivated

Dec 11, 2021 | All Posts

There’s no denying that motivation is a key ingredient to success. But what happens when you find yourself losing steam? How can you stay motivated and achieve your goals?

Don’t sweat. We’re here to help you get motivated and keep motivated with our tips below that will help you stay on track.

1. Find Your Why

When it comes to getting motivated, identifying your “why” is essential. Why do you want to achieve this goal? What is the payoff for you? When you know your why, it will be easier to overcome any obstacle in your way.

This sits in line with goal setting. If you know your main driving force for ‘why’ you want something, then it’s much easier to see it as a goal and plan the steps it takes to achieve your goal.

2. Beware of When You Lose Motivation

When it comes to getting things done, there are 3 main times when we experience a loss in motivation: after the initial novelty wears off, right before a big milestone and just before a new project begins.

That’s why it’s important to know yourself well, go easy on yourself when you’re not feeling motivated and fall back on activities that help to generate enthusiasm and motivation in your being.

When used properly, motivation is a huge driving factor that can help you climb mountains, so it’s important that it’s used properly and never used to burn you out.

3. Get Inspired

Find inspiration in others who have achieved what you want to achieve. Read their stories, watch their videos and learn from their experiences. Seeing someone else’s success can be the push you need to get moving.

There’s billions of incredible human beings that have walked the earth before you. Some have even written books of their experiences, so that you can piggy-back off of their knowledge, instead of having to find out the hard or long way yourself.

It’s easy to get motivated when you’re feeling good, but what happens when you’re having a bad day and just want to stay in bed?

Well, you have two options. You can either do nothing or you can get out of bed and make something happen. And if you do decide to get out, that’s when your goals come into play.

4. Set Achievable Goals

It can be demotivating when our goals seem impossible or out of reach. To stay motivated, set goals that you feel good about and that are within your capabilities. This will not only keep you motivated, but also inspire you to keep moving forward.

By setting achievable goals, you enable yourself the ability to gain momentum. Momentum is key, as with momentum, things move along more efficiently and in a more inspired way.

Momentum is arguably one of the most important building blocks when it comes to achieving your goals.

5. Break Things Down

Breaking tasks into smaller steps can make them seem less intimidating and easier to accomplish. Once broken down, it’s like having a series of achievable goals that will help keep you motivated along the way.

When it comes to goal setting, breaking things down is essential. 

This could be a simple outline of steps that you want to take, or even a daily/weekly plan of what you want to accomplish.

6. Set Realistic Goals

Don’t set yourself up for failure by setting unrealistic goals. Make sure your goals are both challenging and attainable, so that you can stay motivated throughout the process.

When it comes to goal setting, it’s important to remember that balance is key. Challenging yourself is healthy and will help you grow, but make sure your goals are still realistic so that you don’t put unnecessary pressure on yourself.

7. Create a Plan of Action

Once you have your goals set, it’s important to create a plan of action that outlines the steps you need to take to achieve them. This will help keep you on track and motivated along the way .

This is where planning for your goal(s) comes in. Planning helps you see the steps that will be taken and how they’re going to get done. It helps you not only see how something is going to be achieved, but also gives a clear cut path of what needs to be done, when and how it will be done.

8. Find a Support System

Having a support system in place can be extremely motivating. When you have others cheering you on, it will be easier to stay on track and achieve your goals. 

Surrounding yourself with people that will help keep you motivated, is one of the best things you can do for yourself.

Even if your support system is just one person, it can make a world of difference. Having that accountability and support will help you stay on track and push through any rough patches.

9. Acknowledge Your Progress

It’s important to celebrate your progress along the way, no matter how small it may seem. Acknowledging your accomplishments will help keep you motivated and inspired to continue moving forward.

This is important for when you hit any walls, as it will help keep you from feeling defeated and give you the drive to push forward.

10. Stay Positive

When things get tough, it can be easy to get negative. But don’t let the setbacks get you down! Stay positive and focused on your goal, and you will eventually reach it.

There’s no denying that motivation is a key ingredient to success. Without motivation, the process of achieving your goals can be overwhelming and even discouraging. 

With the right tools, you can learn how to get motivated and keep motivated. Implementing these tips will help make the journey a little less daunting and a lot more inspiring.
