Motivation is something that helps us in achieving our dream. You have a goal to achieve and you do everything to achieve that goal, you sacrifice, you fail and you try again, that’s called motivation. Motivation is within you. I have been researching on the internet on how to keep yourself motivated. There were many ways to motivate yourself but I found 5 ways that worked for me best. So here are 5 ways to motivate yourself:
Yes, exercise. It’s been 3 months that I joined the gym not because to have a perfect body but to be healthy to be fit and in 3 months I can now see the difference. My body and mind feel light. I have a clear picture of my path.
2. Do Meditation:
Meditation is a process through which I calm myself. I use the Headspace app for meditation. With the help of meditation, I keep myself relaxed and focused. Even it helps in sleep as well.
3. Take small steps towards your goal:
I remember earlier I always wanted to have an instant result for my work. Due to a lack of patience, I always took big steps to get a fast result. But it doesn’t work in this way. In order to achieve our goal, we must take small steps. Make a to-do list. Create a long-term goal and according to that create a short-term goal. Work every day on your short-term goal and you will achieve your long-term goal.
4. Be Grateful:
Last year I read the book “What I know for sure” by Oprah Winfrey. (Check out) What I learned from this book was how to be grateful, how to be thankful for what we have and now no matter what, I made this in practice every day I’ll perform gratitude. I’ll express my gratitude for everything I have. Do it every day and you will find positivity inside you.
5. Have a vision board:
I was watching videos of one of my favorite youtube channel “Lavendaire“ and in one of her videos, I found the concept of a vision board. Vision board is basically a board where you have to paste pictures of that stuff that you want to achieve in your life. For instance: If you want to travel to a particular place, paste the picture of that place into our vision board, if you want to own a house, paste the picture of the house. Keep that board in front of your workplace and you will get motivated whenever you will see your vision board.
So these are 5 ways through which I motivate myself. Hope you find my article useful.
