How do you motivate yourself? We all want to maximize our time and do more of the things we love to do but sometimes we get stuck in the ‘getting ready’ process.
We want to live every day with a clear intention to get closer to achieving our goals and living a happy, successful life. We want to get better every day but we never actually jump off.
The most powerful form of motivation comes from self-motivation. You can light your own fire.
It is not enough simply to wait for inspiration to start you moving forward. It doesn’t have to be something that happens to you, it can be something that you create.
All progress and motivation starts with taking action. One action will lead to another. Action will create better outcomes and new experiences for you.
When my coaching clients are suffering from distraction, I simply get them to start taking action. To get fired up. To do something specific.
This may be getting up earlier, or committing to doing exercise daily. Even if it’s doing something for just 5 minutes, it’s often that little push that it enough to get them going.
If you focus on a small number of things to create the change you want, it can have a dramatic effect on your business and life.
Here are 11 things you can do right now to take that jump and in the process of increasing brain power, memory and motivation.
1. Simplify Your Life
By creatively planning your life, it allows you to simplify. Delegating and eliminating activities that don’t motivate or excite you ensures you maximise your time and focuses your energy on achieving your goals.
It’s really hard to stay motivated when your mind is confused and cluttered with all of the projects and tasks you need to do. But if you can simplify, if you can carve away the unnecessary, your life will become more focused. And more focus leads to more motivation.
