Achieving our goals is seldom easy. It’s why knowing how to stay motivated is so incredibly important when it comes to getting what we want in the long term. And in a world with more distractions than ever before — from non-stop web access to constant texting — it can be all the harder to stay focussed and not just give in to what’s easier in the moment.
Motivation is what drives us to make the things happen – but staying motivated isn’t always easy. Here are
some points on how to become and stay motivated, and for what to do if you just can’t get into gear.
Think about the achievements in your life.
Examine your strengths to understand what you can build on.
Determine what other people see as your strengths and key capabilities.
Set achievable goals for yourself, work to achieve them, and enjoy that achievement.
Spend time with positive people.
Read positive and inspirational materials.
Sometimes all you need is a little inspiration to keep rolling.
