Do you feel a little stuck and unsure what is next for you, but are lacking in motivation to make any plans for the future, or even to get through daily tasks?
Life can be challenging at times and can often be repetitive. It can be easy to go from day to day feeling lethargic and frustrated. A recent client came to me for exactly this reason; she was struggling to find any motivation, but wanted to re-ignite the fire in her belly. I shared the below motivational tips with her and these helped her to get back on track. I hope they will be of use to others too….
Work to develop a positive mind set to increase daily motivation
You can create a positive mind set through gratitude, surrounding yourself with positive people, and doing activities you enjoy. Take some time each day to think about 3 things you are grateful for. Gratitude journals can be really useful for this!
Find inspiration in others or follow people online that you find inspiring.
For example, you could look up motivational speakers or read inspiring books. Pinterest can also be a great way to surround yourself with positivity and motivational quotes.
Envision your future. What do you see?
Visualising your goals and how it feels when you achieve them can be a useful way to increase motivation. Vision boards can help to open up the mind and start imagining what life could look like.
Get excited about your goals and start taking small steps to achieve them.
Write down your life goals and consider which you can start to work towards in the next 6 months. Be realistic and make sure they are meaningful to you and consider what impact they will have on your life when they are achieved. Share them with someone who can hold you accountable and create a plan of action to get you there.
Reward yourself when you achieve your goals (no matter the size).
Celebrate your ‘wins’ and make sure you reflect on your achievements. This will help to keep you on track and give you the boosts you need to keep going.
Reset and re-energise if you need to.
This is really important. Burnout can lead to a lack of motivation, so if you are feeling burnout and exhausted take some time out and re-charge your batteries. Consider how you can reduce your daily tasks, prioritise self-care, and focus on the present moment.
If you would like some help to increase your motivation and become ‘unstuck’, book a call here.
I would love to help you to wake up with optimism and feel excited about the day ahead!
