Video: 3 Things You Need To Motivate
3 things you need to motivate
Every time you reach your intermediate goal, you must do 3 things:
1. Celebrate and encourage yourself
Great managers, great parents, and great coaches have one thing in common: They all know how to get their "employees" (workers, children, respectively) to do the things they need to do.
They do it with rewards.
Remember to encourage yourself. If you've honestly worked all week, ate wholesome food, and worked at the gym, GREAT! Go for a walk and forget about everything for a few hours. Do what you want. Do what you always wanted to do but didn’t do. Pamper yourself, go to an expensive store, buy yourself what you wanted to buy.
We dreamed of pizza, spaghetti, cake - go ahead! Eat with pleasure and do not feel any remorse. You deserve it. But only 1 meal, for example Sunday lunch. You do not need to go into a jam, your goal is to reward yourself, and not to punish yourself with pain in the stomach and food poisoning. Buy yourself a treat, enjoy it, and program yourself a new goal for the week.
But remember, it doesn't have to be food, it can be anything. You honestly deserve it!
2. Keep a list of your accomplishments handy
Success breeds more success. Therefore, you must learn to collect your successes and achievements. You will achieve many, many small goals along the way to your main goal. Write them down to the last. Every time you feel a failure in motivation, take out this list and read, imagine and remember.
This is a good way to rekindle motivation. In a few months, you will be surprised that the list is so long and that you have done so much.
3. Constantly set new goals
Goal setting should never stop. Sometimes reaching your innermost goal can be discouraging in itself. There is no limit to perfection, so start preparing for your next holiday to look even better.
Now write your goals not tomorrow, not in a month, but now !, right there, even on a piece of paper. Don't delay, remember that tomorrow comes when you let it come. Do it immediately.
