Staying motivated all the time seems extremely difficult for some people. Who doesn’t have negative vibes from time to time? People meet all the obstacles when they try to carry on. It’s easy to beat us up and make us lose faith. There’s a voice in our minds telling us to give up every single time we are faced with challenges.
How do highly motivated people stay this way all the time? What qualities do they have to fuel the motivation?
They don’t emphasis the outcome, they work on the process.
“What if it doesn’t work out?” the very first sentence that appeared in our minds when we decide to take a challenge. We ask “what if” so often because of our insecurity of ourselves. We are afraid to lose. Losing itself is not so scary if you are not scared of it. We spend too much time worrying about the outcomes. We refuse to take failure or rejection. While highly-motivated people don’t seem to care much about the outcomes in advance. Pay attention to the process, be devoted and enjoy the journey. That’s what highly-motivated people do when they work on new tasks.
They focus on positive sides.
Life can not always be smooth. We find ourselves in bad situations many times. Admit it or not everyone of us cries secretly in the end of the day. But that’s life. Don’t take anything personally. What happens to you, happens to everyone. A method to feel motivated is to focus on the bright side in everything and you will turn the situation. You will have more energy if you stay positive.
They have disciplines.
People get lazy in their comfortable zone. When we set a goal, or resolutions, we don’t always keep up to them. A huge difference between highly-motivated people and negative people is, highly-motivated people are more disciplined. They set disciplines for themselves in order to achieve a goal. And they are stick to them.
They are proud of themselves for small wins
We have a long way to go to achieve our goals. Thinking about it makes us feel that the goals are almost out of reach. Why not break a big goal into small ones and one step at a time? So that whenever you have a small win, you can celebrate it and encourage yourself. It takes hard work to win. But we don’t need to push ourselves so hard all the time. Cherish every opportunity and also every improvement you have achieved. In this way you can stay motivated in a long run.
When giving up is not an option, hang in there and see what will happen.
