Ways to Motivate yourself everyday

35 replies
Okay so this works for me!! But you have to stay consistent. In the mornings and before I go to bed I visualize what I want from life and visualize myself already having it.

Throughout the day I listen to motivational speakers and mentors of mine via my Ipod. My Ipod is full of great Audio books on self improvement and personal development.

The Key is to be consisitent everyday!

Anyway I hope this helps.

If anyone has suggestions please post

    Visualizing is very powerful indeed.

    "What the mind can believe, the body can achieve".

    Until you actually try it, it can be easy to dismiss. But I think it works very well.

    I love visualization too - you mentioned doing this early on a morning, I think this is key - not especially to visualize, but to do some positive things to set you up for the day. I think this is different for many people, but you should start the day as you mean to go on.

    On busy days I check my email before breakfast for 10 minutes and get some distractions out of the way. I always eat a healthy breakfast as this makes me want to have a good day and eat healthy the rest of the day too, I have a friend who always does just 10-20 minutes on an exercise bike to energize him and get him in the right frame of mind - whatever works for you I guess

      I think that is the better question getting motivated isn't the issue, I can dream as well as the next guy, it's staying consistent.

      Yeah, that's my question too. I have done affirmations and visualization and tried to meditate, and I can keep it up every day consistently for a few weeks or months, but then something always gts in the way. How do you manage to be consistent?

        No one said being consistent would be an easy task. Things will sometimes get in the way. You just might start breaking some good patterns you've developed like visualizing and meditating. But ultimately your awareness level will have gone up. You will have noticed your not doing what you should be doing.

        From that point just work on getting back on track.

        No ones perfect we all get off track sometimes.

    The key is to break the task down into simple chunks and consistantly only bite one chunk at a time.

    I only choose to complete three tasks each day, but these are three important tasks. By writing these down the night before, you wake up focused and have a MEASURABLE goal. That's the key to consistant work, taking small steps towards a measurable goal.

    Yes visualising is important, but trust me, I have met people who visualise very well but were lazy as hell when it came to action. Visualising is only the start... action is what counts. The easier you make it to take action, the more consistant you will be.

    I like to print out my sales figures as charts. I've stuck them on the wall at home.

    Thanks to moving averages I can see that business #1 is really sick now, and that has motivated myself to set up business #2 and #3 before #1 goes into intensive care. That's good motivation for me!

    Imagination can go beyond wisdom,if we just take note for a moment ,that everything we do starts of as a thought, we have to visualize everything in one form or another for it to manifest, and we all know that where our thoughts ,so that is where we are, we just have to choose which seeds of thought should be planted and tended

      The night before, decide what you will do to complete your website, ebook or other project. Choose something that you would feel motivated to work on, if possible.

      The next day, implement your plan first thing. By the time you complete it, you will be able to continue any other work that needs to be done.

    I totally agree with you, it is very important to have self motivation in order to achieve your goals in life, thinking in advance of what you want to happen for you on the next day really makes your day much positive and very much easier.

    Don't forget to putting your goals on paper (and updating every month, quarter). You will be amazed at what happens when you put things down on paper!

    have a board with pictures / symbols representing your current goals.
    place that board strategically. Having a reminder of what you want or why you are doing this... helps me.

    I try to pay attention to my self-talk. It's really easy to slip into saying some really negative things to ourselves. Keep it positive even when you're talking to yourself. :-)))

      Exactly, you can be your best motivator or your worst enemy. The only thing that will affect your success is not others saying that you can't but yourself saying that you can't.

    One of my old bosses (who was a millionaire) used to always say, if you cannot see yourself having your own helicopter one day, then how are you going to end up having your own helicopter... i.e. if you do not believe. you will not achieve.

    I've been seeing ways like this to motivate yourself everywhere, it's called mental visualisation if i am right(?)

    I, too, sometimes use this 'mental visualisation' method to motivate myself and I have to say that it works most of the time!

    Setting and achieving goals motivates me everyday.

    The reason why is that I know with every goal I achieve I get one step closer to my ultimate goal. It's a real motivator to know your making steady progress towards your dreams. As long as you stay consistent with achieving goals you'll eventually reach your destination!

    Set ur mind on the benefits u will derive when u achieve a goal, I think that's enough to get anyone motivated .

    Don't dwell so much on the difficulties involved, but on the benefit(s) to be derived. Hope that helps >>>

    Every morning i think at my little 9 month girl and imagine how would it be not to have food, clothes and toys for her. That's enough.

    Oh, and also, i think i would enjoy some long periods on tropical beaches, that motivates me too

    Hi Ryan,
    This is similar to your way, but Napoleon Hill recommended that every night you repeat the goal that you want to yourself with a set deadline as well as what you are willing to do to get it.
    E.g. I want to be a millionaire before I'm 30 and I'm willing to work at least 60 hours a week and on weekends as necessary.
    Personally, I prefer to set stretch goals that have short deadlines. I find "I want to be rich in 20 years" doesn't push me too hard.

    Post something relevant to your dream on the ceiling above where you sleep, that way it will be the first thing you see when you wake up, and it will hopefully give you that extra bit of energy to get out of bed. I received that tip from the proclaimed 'the secret'.

    For me its creating a list of tasks and goals. If I don't have a list or a clear view of what needs to be taken care of I usually freeze up and do nothing.

    Can't help but agree. Positive thought will always result in positive action. If you run into a problem - treat it lake a coin, flip it over and see what is on the other side. There is not a problem that can not be solved. Affirmations and visualizations are the way to go. Believe and achieve.
