We’ve all had that feeling of being stuck.
It wasn’t that we didn’t have a direction or course to put forth effort – we just weren’t getting our stuff done.
Most the time we don’t really know what hit us ..
Here are some steps to finding self motivation to get back to taking action.
Think about the situation. Why is it there is a lull in the progress of whatever it is we are undertaking. This could be in work, personal development, or any other aspect of life.
We are not where we want to be right now because of something. Understand what that something is. Introspect as to why there is no work being put in.
After we analyze what we need to do to improve, we can go on to the next step, which is creating a compelling vision for ourselves and our goals.
By doing this, we’ll attach positive meaning to what it is we’re doing.
As we look ahead into the future with this positive mindset, with purpose in what we’re doing, we’ll start to separate all the noise in our life with what really matters.
We’ll value our time and let go of some habits, activities, and thoughts that are not serving us in helping reach our goals.
It’s important to hold a compelling vision in our mind because when we do feel discouraged, the positive vision of the future will give us the motivation to keep going.
To make that compelling vision a reality, we’ll need to create a game plan.
For this plan to have any kind of impact, goals need to be made.
These goals’ve got to be realistic, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t dream big.
It means that we should establish goals that are doable, that we can complete on the day to day.
Those small victories will give us fuel for even bigger successes in the future.
As we accomplish these small victories through doable goals, we’ll create positive work habits and all these small things will add up in the long run and turn into milestones of achievement while giving us a surge of momentum.
As we develop these positive habits and consistently take action towards our ideal, we’re going to feel a surge of motivation and purpose.
This surge is momentum and it’s going help us achieve our goals by bestowing energy to us and give us that edge we need to take it to the next level.
The worst possible thing to do during one of these momentum moments is to stop.
We will be tempted to slow down and not require as much of ourselves when things are going well, but we shouldn’t give up the momentum we have. It was worked for.
Not taking advantage of momentum can result in a loss, as holding ourselves back from reaching even bigger heights can cause us to forfeit unseen opportunities.
If we find ourselves in the position of being stuck, let’s remember to take some time to think about what we want, visualize up a bright future, create a game plan, and set reasonable goals.
Once those goals are being worked at everyday, we can use the momentum to our advantage and let it push us towards the life we want.
