Motivation is often the missing key to your success.
It’s not uncommon to experience times in your life when motivation is lacking. It’s just not optimal.
The motivation you have, the more you can accomplish. Of course, you also need clarity, productivity, and results. Yet, it starts with the motivation to begin in the first place.
Here are 7 ways to increase your motivation:
1. Hit your power pose.
What is a pose/body posture that makes you feel unstoppable? If you know it, do it while you breathe deeply. It will help put you in a better state of mind. If you don’t yet have a power pose, take a strong stance, lift your chest upward and look upward while your take a long/deep breath.
2. Think of your challenge as a fresh start.
We get many fresh starts in life. It’s up to you to view it as something positive, and a way to do things better or differently so you get a more desirable result.
3. Write a contract with yourself.
Yes, write it out, and sign your name. It’s a commitment to yourself to complete the task you said was important.
4. Use an app.
There are several productivity and accountability apps in the app store that will give your reminders, rewards and incentives to make your motivational strategies more effective.
5. Use affirmations.
These are words or phrases you tell yourself to gain a mental edge. You can say things to yourself such as: I am strong, I am resourceful. I am smart. I can do this. I have the ability to see this through.
6. Reward yourself along the way.
Sometimes people wait until they reach “the big goal” before they celebrate. Consider, celebrating the small er victories along the way. If your goal is to run a marathon, reward yourself for the 5k, 10k and half-marathon finishes as well.
7. Have an accountability partner.
In the Penthouse Group, we are each other’s accountability partner. Why? Because we know it works. When you have someone checking in on you to ensure you are on track, it makes you more responsible. The result is more motivation and more desired outcomes.
I’m willing to bet, you are already doing some of these strategies. The more you do, the better your results.
