“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar
This is something that needs to be refreshed as often as possible. Motivation is definitely a tricky concept, it should come from within but more often than not, it doesn’t.
This is why Zig Ziglar recommends it daily.
So lets think about how we can stay motivated every day. What images can you put in your mind and routines can you put into your life that will help you stay motivated?
The images that help me the most with my daily motivational renewal are written ones. Generally in the form of quotes work the best for me, but short stories about inspirational things do the trick as well.
Pictures of mountain tops and people surfing sure are nice, but they have never really inspired me to keep working toward my dreams of writing full time.
That’s why I like to read quotes.
How about routines to stay motivated?
Definitely. If you are trying to get fit, a routine is going to be your best friend. You are going to know that it is the only way to achieve your fitness goals and it will definitely help you stay motivated.
Unless you deviate from the routine…
How about the routine of working towards anything everyday? Sometimes this might feel like a chore, but as long as you realize that conscious practice makes perfect, you realize that you are slowly working towards your goals. I can’t think of anything more motivating than achieving my dreams.
So now that you know how to add a little boos of motivation to your life, you can get back on track and get something done.
