Let’s keep moving forward and stay motivated!
Here we go again. Trying to find ways to keep motivated. But that’s what life is about. Staying in motion. Sometimes a repetition of the process. But definitely plenty of room for reinvention.
Lately, times have been difficult , even I could find myself feeling down. But, I try my very best to keep my spirits high. Most of my friends and colleagues commend me for being positive most of the time. How do I do it?
I have listed up 5 things I always bear in mind to stay motivated:
- Motivation is something you work on.
There are times when we feel listless, especially during these challenging times, but we just gotta get on with the flow of life. But as we get on with it and as we keep working, we’ll eventually find the courage again and be motivated to keep moving forward.
Motivation is like a car, it won’t run unless you start it. It also takes some time learning, and a little bit of bravery to get on the highway.
- Find something that lights up your soul.
As individuals, it is our responsibility to look for something that speaks to our souls, lets our spirits burn, and fuels the fire within.
Being able to look for something that keeps us moving is an unending goal we always have. Yet, when we find it, there is no turning back.
- Don’t just focus on your goals but on the process as well.
Goals are important, but having a system that works is more important, as based on personal experiences.
It is important to be smart with what we aim for. We are in control of each tangible progress. The end goal is not just the focus, so it is helpful to set little goals to achieve every step of the way.
The end product can always be better if we improve our methods.
- Try to surround yourself with more like-minded people.
Most of us are easily influenced, especially during vulnerable times. So, being with people who uplift you would mean a lot and help you as you go on in life.
Trying to surround yourself with people who think alike can help you develop your hobbies, your inspirations, and interests, but don’t shut other people out of your circle. Sometimes, you can find new interests from people who are the exact opposite, as are these people who are likewise looking for something new.
- In every little progress, you deserve a reward!
Don’t be too hard on yourself. It is good to be self-driven, but loosen up a little bit.
Keeping track of your progress helps a lot. It helps sway you from the inevitable stress and pressure you may give yourself without even realizing it. A reward system would be really helpful because it will make you realize and keep you aware that you’re on track. It would also make you feel accomplished every step of the way.
See? Everything will be alright. Stay focused! Let’s think positive, keep moving forward and stay motivated. Keep smiling!
Be pretty, be happy, be you! H~
