    If you haven't already make sure to read the 4 Hour work week by Tim Ferriss. He has very good concepts that can be used in real time. The idea is do develop that perfect balance and really focus on the areas in priority.

    My family is definitely an inspiration and my love for my work. However, there are times that it's really hard to get up and start working. What I do is remind myself that if I don't get things done now, I'll have more workloads for tomorrow which is more tiring and time-consuming.

      Hey I love that rocky balboa scene I watch it everday for deep motivation. Everyday I like YOUR BETTER THAN THAT! Seriously though guys I love the information being Shared. Most of us never have clear goals and aren't really driven by anything at all. My family is a huge part in the reason I wake up and go to work. Eric Thomas Is sweet to listen to as well. Normally I have a daily get PUMPED routine. I've decided to be the best I've got to out work the REST! Love the tips guys. Keep um coming.

      I agree with this. Try to make sure you are doing something you like, and it is not hard to keep coming back.

    Knowing that the path I have chosen is the right one for me.

    I've just started meditating as well and that really helps you appreciate what is important and what you should devote your time to and removes all the bull shit.

    I stay motivated by repetitively visualizing and imagining some of the potential fruits of having massive success.

    I think there should be a bit more to the question when asking me:

    "How do you stay motivated when you don't see any results?"

    I find it extremely difficult but when I think of quitting, I know that if I actually do quit, it is then that I have failed.

      Yep exactly, if you are seeing results than everything is easier but when you don't see any results it can get pretty hard.

      I keep reminding myself about the "razor's edge" when I'm not getting results and tell myself that I'm so close to reaching my goals and by taking one more step I will reach it because that is what changes my results.

    If I stop working, I become useless and because of that, my family will also have to suffer. It will also take away the other things I enjoy and no more vacations. I don't want that and I'd happily work harder to keep these things.

    I start the day by reading a bit of a motivational book or watch a video! That will help me to set up my mind for the rest of day! Then there's also the hunger, how hungry you are and how bad you want it, that motivates also...

    Lighten up and have some fun. You can find the humor in almost any topic. Look for different angles you could write from. Feel free to think outside the box. It's interesting how lifestyle blogs talk about "doing your own thing" and "writing epic content" when they're clearly doing what other lifestyle bloggers have told them to do(like sheep). It's boring and repetitive. Be free to explore your voice as a writer. Stop placing labels on yourself. Open your mind to new and exciting ways of thinking. Staying motivated for me means doing something edgy and radical. Just make sure you continue to provide value to products or services. Your vivacious personality alone won't sell. It will simply make things less monotonous.

    Hi oppyeaunome,

    I stay motivated by working in the niches I enjoy and really care about.

    I have struggled with many ways of working to accomplish what I need to do to make a good living. What I have discovered is that if you give in and do work you hate to do, you're in trouble right off.

    So a first priority is to move towards jobs and tasks you feel passionate about and love doing. This engages the enormous emotional base within you that has the energy to move mountains. . . . Wishing you well in this!

      The best way, IMO, to stay motivated is to choose goals that are "well formed", that is, they meet the following criteria:

      1) Must be specific (40K a year instead of "more money")

      2) Must be time limited (40K a year within six months instead of "in the future")

      3) Must be YOUR goals, not somebody else's (harder than you think)

      4) Must get you FIRED UP! (e.g. something that REALLY twirls your propeller)

      5) Something that is dependent on YOU, not other people (e.g. I'll have a wonderful relationship, vs. I'll get THAT GIRL to fall in love with me)

      Once you build in these five elements, and visualize daily with emotions, it will be hard NOT to stay motivated!

    1. I stay motivated when I see myself being efficient in what I do.
    2. I stay motivated when I check and see my goals and take action towards it.
    3. I stay motivated by one purpose... and that is excellence in everything I do.

    I go to the mirror and ask myself how bad do u want it? Then I get fired up and say I WANT IT! I also think about what'll happen I f I fail, gotta go back to the 9-5, and I say O H NO! I back myself into a corner and say this is the only way you're gonna get filthy rich. Or I can go back to living an uninspired life and I say NO WAY!!

    Probably the best answer to this question would be multifaceted, because it really depends on what, specifically, is making you not feel motivated on each particular day.

    Obviously, any true & lasting motivation (and I realize that this is something which people have already said) comes from developing and defining your 'why'; WHY do you want to be successful? Why must you be successful? What does success mean for you? What does having money allow you to do? It is important to note here that simply the desire for money is not enough, your why must be for something more than money. Money, in and of it's self, is not enough of a motivator, it must be something more tangible like time with your family or vacations, or something like that. The more specific you are with your why, the more persuasive it will become for you.

    Another important part of my personal motivational plan is meditation. The best meditation CDs I have found come from the Centerpointe Research Institute (non-affiliate link). This meditation will, specifically, help you to eliminate your non-supportive habits and achieve a clarity in your life that would (without the technology) take 30 years in a monastery to achieve. This is helpful because it allows you to achieve ever higher states of self-awareness and gives you access to the parts of your mind which were previously unavailable to you; your sub-conscious mind is about 30,000 times more powerful than the conscious part of your mind, meditation (in any form) helps you to put that power to work for you rather than against you (in the form of empowering self-limiting beliefs that your mind assumes are important to be true for you since you spend so much time thinking about them).

    The third part of my multifaceted attack on laziness and procrastination is the Ultimate You Library by Paul Scheele of Learning Strategies Corporation (non-affiliate links). These CDs are powerful hypnosis combined with the Holosync audio tracks from Centerpointe Research Institute that will put you in the absolute correct state-of-mind for total relaxation and accelerated learning. These are very powerful to achieve whatever you want to in terms of self-development.

    Lastly, I have found that having some sort of spiritual life is crucially important to staying upbeat and positive throughout life's trials and tribulations. Personally, I am a Christian because that belief works for me, you may find that something else works for you and that is totally ok with me. Whatever you choose, make sure that it is in complete agreement with your personal morals and ethics and that it also is supportive, forgiving, and causes you to want to do good in the world and to leave this earth better than you found it.

    I hope that this helps!

    God bless!
