Don’t be one of the 92% of people who gives up on their goals and resolutions within 3-4 weeks of setting them!
How do you stay motivated and inspired? How can you keep your passion, your excitement, fired up? By reviewing these self-motivators on a regular basis:
1. Truly GET SERIOUS about what you want!
Make a decision to go all the way to your goal this time. Up to now, you’ve only thought about it. Up to now, it’s passed your mind. But now make up your mind to go all the way to the top, and your life will take off. It’s the most extraordinary thing and our minds are so powerful!
Get serious. Don’t fool around anymore.
2. Know what is limiting you!
What is it that is limiting you? What’s the one lack of skill that’s holding you back? What quality are you lacking in? What do you need to do to fix it? …Ask other people. Find out what you need to become good at. What is it that could be keeping you stuck? What is limiting you from achieving your goals and sticking with it? This may be hard to figure out, but if you take time to think about it, you may discover what it is! …and then you can do something about it! ….Take a course, implement contents from a good self-improvement book or podcast, work on your self-love a bit 🙂
3. Get around the right people.
Who are the right people? Get around people who are positive and who have goals and plans, people who are going somewhere with their lives and have high aspirations. If you want to fly with the eagles, then you gotta get off the ground and stop scratching with the chickens!
And, for heaven’s sake, get away from negative people!! Get away from toxic people that complain and whine and moan all the time. Who needs them? Life is too short.
4. Take good care of yourself.
Take excellent care of your health. That means good diet, good exercise. Everybody knows they should eat better foods, work out regularly and get lots of rest. If you’re going to work hard five days a week, go to bed early five days a week.
5. Imagine yourself in a positive way
Visualize yourself as the very best in whatever you do—continually. Remember, all improvement in your life begins with an improvement in your mental pictures.
6. Be GOOD to yourself
Control your inner self-talk and practice positive self-talk… How? Say, “I truly am the best.” Say it. Say, “I love myself,” “I can totally do anything I set my mind to,” “I love what I do for a living.” If you say those things to yourself and you don’t believe them, isn’t that lying to yourself? No, that’s not lying to yourself—it’s telling the truth in advance. Because it doesn’t matter where you’re coming from—all that matters is where you’re going.
Talk to yourself the way you want to be, not the way you just happen to be at this moment. Remember, you may have gotten where you are today largely by accident. But where you’re going in the future is purely by design.
7. OK LETS MOVE!
Move fast. A sense of urgency is the one thing you can develop that will separate you from everyone else. Lean towards an attitude of ACTION! When you get a good idea, do it right away!
And the faster you move, the better you get. And the better you get, the more you like yourself. And the more you like yourself, the higher your self-esteem is. And the higher your self-esteem is, the greater your self-discipline is. And the more you persist, then you will become totally UNSTOPPABLE!
