When I started learning a new skill online, my greatest challenges has always been “Finishing what I started” You felt it’s only you? Nay, I feel like that too, losing interest and zeal, it got to a point you would need external influence or someone to motivate you before you can swing into action
According to Wikipedia
“Motivation is the reason for people’s actions, desires, and needs. Motivation is also one’s direction to behavior, or what causes a person to want to repeat a behavior.”
It’s really bad but these days i figured a way to get over it, I know with this little approach which worked for me, you should too, because an unmotivated person ends up same like a procrastinator, it’s not cool, in fact, it would have been nice not getting started at all
How do you motivate yourself?
first, we all know motivation the act of giving someone a reason for doing something, and without much argument, we can all agree to this as we need someone or something that can trigger the inner you.
To learn how to motivate you to follow this few quick guides below:
1. What inspires you?
A very good step towards motivating yourself is to have a purpose of action, of course, you don’t just start projects without finding out how long or the phases it will take before fruition, I use to advise my students “always know your strength, and your yielding point”!, Patient is a virtue and it’s not everyone that has it, for instance, new bloggers find it very difficult to be focused or continue during their first 1-3 months the overlaying reason being inpatient for traffic and SEO ranking. Let’s assume you are new to blogging, maybe after the munbo jumbo your friends told you on instant making money blog, however venturing into blogging now has more than meets the eye, but as a focused person who sees the future and understands that it could take up till 2-4 months before paychecks starts rolling in, this reason will inspire you and make you do whatever it takes to challenge all of the obstacles, so you can achieve your goals, and so in order to stay inspired you need to focus on the goal that got you inspired.
Ask yourself what you want to achieve, and write it down clearly and in as much detail as possible.
* Think of what your outcome would be in the future if achieved.
* Don’t forget to take note of what really got you inspired.
2. What is your goal?
After the first step, we move to you the next which is having a goal that you want to achieve. Having a great goal is crucial because it is very difficult to motivate yourself if you don’t have a specific goal that you want to accomplish, a big goal has a big effect and can create a lot of motivation.
3. Execute in bits:
This is also an important part because after setting and programming your mind in order for you to get where you want to be it requires serious effort. You need to start taking small steps, so you can get to where you want to be. Stay positive once started, it will become easy for you to continue moving forward and actualizing your aim.
This simple approached worked great for me! Did you find anything useful making you be more focused? Let’s hear it and I will add it
