Go From Uninspired to Motivated in 3 Easy Steps


Whether it's losing weight or trying to land a new dream job, being motivated can make all the difference between success and defeat. 

Preparation for success often requires hard work, though, and this isn't always easy. Sometimes, you might feel like the only way to reach your goal is with unlimited amounts of motivation. 

By now you're probably wondering, "Where can I find my motivation?"

Try these techniques to spur you on:

  • Find motivation from those around you. The world is filled with those who could have made it, yet didn't for any number of reasons. It is also filled with many successful people who are motivating themselves each day to reach higher and achieve more.
  • The great news is that you can draw lots of motivation from both types of people. Those who haven’t achieved much can serve as a reminder of where you probably don't want to be and why you’re working so hard to reach success. 
  • People that are enjoying great amounts of success can give you a concrete vision of where you can one day be.
  • In addition, seeing others like you becoming successful reinforces the idea that it is indeed possible to turn your own dream into a reality. 
  • If others can be successful, then why can't you? Rather than coming up with reasons why you can’t reach success, focus on discovering all the reasons why you can!

Stay focused on the purpose. If you’re training to run a marathon, you’ll probably wind up spending significant amounts of time running every day. If you’re waking up every morning and subjecting your body to intense levels of physical exertion with no meaning behind it, you’ll be more likely to lose interest.

  • A major part of being successful is reminding yourself why you’re doing all these preparations. 
  • When you remember your “why,” you’ll devote more focused energy to your preparation to achieve outstanding results. 
  • It’s important to stay centered on the reason you’re doing something, and if you’re unable to come up with a reason, perhaps you should be doing something else.

Believe in yourself. When you’re in the trenches, working hard each day to grind your way to victory, it can be easy to question yourself and your abilities.

  • Stay positive and have faith in your skills and hard work. Otherwise, you’ll be planting a seed of doubt in everything that you do.
  • Remaining positive can be a challenge, yet part of the entire idea of having faith in yourself has much to do with continuing to move forward even when you’re not clear where your steps will take you. 
  • This means that, even if you’re not sure exactly how you’re going to achieve your goal, you can still take steps towards that goal, knowing in your heart that you’ll successfully cross any bridges once they present themselves.

Practice using these techniques each day and soon you’ll find that motivation seems to come naturally to you. Your lackluster efforts will be a thing of the past as you boldly go forward into your shining future of success!

Positivity can change your life !

What makes positivity so important? A positive attitude is important for a great many reasons. Having a positive attitude helps you cope more easily with the responsibilities of everyday life and helps to relieve stress and strengthen personal relationships. A positive attitude will help you to avoid worrying unnecessarily and will enhance your physical and mental well-being. We have all had to deal with a ‘Negative Nelly‘ at one time or another throughout our lives. A Negative Nelly is that person who is always full of complaints and is never satisfied with anything that happens in their life. If you have ever been around a ‘Negative Nelly‘ for an extended period of time you know how draining this type of person can be an effect they can have on your own level of positivity. Negativity is exhausting, it takes a ton of effort and it doesn’t do one bit of good for anyone. Having a positive attitude is actually quite easy to achieve. It consists mainly of being aware of your thoughts, ac

Motivation: “When you doubt your power, you give power to your doubt.”

  You know what that voice in your head says…You can’t do it. You’ll never be good enough. You’re going to fail. This voice taunts you whenever you set a goal. It criticizes you when life gets difficult. It beats you down when you struggle to stand up against its running commentary. You know you shouldn’t let self-doubt bother you, but it’s a sneaky critter. Sometimes, you just can’t contain it and it slips past your barriers. And self-doubt is greedy. When it’s loose, it devours your confidence, strips logic and reason from your mind, and steals happiness from your heart. In return, it leaves you with only fear and insecurity. You try to remove self-doubt by forcing yourself to “think positive,” which usually doesn’t work as well as you think it should. The more you fight your self-doubt, the more it fights back. However, with self-knowledge and understanding, you can use self-doubt for your benefit. Identify and ease your doubts. Learning how to recognize when your self-talk takes a

14 Habits of Successful People Checklist

  Those who are successful share a set of habits that help make them the successes they are. Do you have these habits? Use this checklist to check off the ones you already have and practice the ones you wish to develop. Soon, you’ll find yourself building your own success! 1. Organize. One of the most common habits of successful people is that they are organized. This allows them to plan ahead and to set priorities and goals for themselves. Create a “To-do list” each night before bed, so that you know what tasks need to be completed the next day. 2. Relax. To prepare themselves mentally for the work yet to come, successful people tend to use meditation to relax before a task. You can achieve a similar state by making a conscious effort to concentrate on your own breathing for 3-5 minutes. 3. Take action. An important habit - and a natural progression from the planning stage (for those who are successful) - is to take action. Once you make a plan, you must put it into action. Otherwi
