Finding Motivation: Change Your life

First, let’s find out what the importance of motivation exactly is. Simply put, motivation is the reason or reasons a person has for acting or behaving in a particular way. This basically means there is some driving force that pushes you to achieve your goals and go after what you want in life. As long as you have motivation, you can achieve almost anything that you want from life. However, for a lot of people finding motivation is easier said than done. One of the most common traps people fall into is looking for short-cuts to achieve their goals. According to popular opinion to be an expert in any aspect of life have the most time invested in their craft. This same concept of motivation applies to making changes in your life. The reality is that change is difficult because, in all probability, you have been in your current situation for a while and your habits are deeply ingrained in you. So how can you develop motivation in life? If you wish to accomplish a goal be it short-term or long-term in nature.  If you want to change your life for the better here are a few things that you should keep in mind:


  1. Focus on one goal at a time:

This should be partnered with the fact that you should make sure that your short-term goals all help in achieving your long-term goals.

  1. Block out any negative influences:

Make sure that you are completely blocking out any negative influences in your life. If you feel that you are being distracted from your goal by a problem which does not seem to go away, ask yourself what you can do to eliminate such a challenge and distraction in your life.

  1. Conquering Your Fears:

We all have hidden fears or anxieties that can keep you from changing are lives. Once you isolate the unknowns and make yourself confident you can start on the path to changing your life.

  1. Get excited:

This sounds easy, but most people don’t think about it if you want to break out of a slump, get yourself excited about a goal.

  1. Think about it daily:

If you think about your goal every day, it is much more likely to become true. A quote I believe to be true is “Thoughts Become Reality”. This simply means that if you keep believing in something and speaking it into existence.

  1. Overcoming problems:

The worst killer of motivation is facing a seemingly small problem that creates endless frustration. Reframe little problems that must be fixed as bigger ones, or they will kill any drive you have.

  1. Develop a successful mindset:

This is a very key component to find motivation once you have a successful mindset you can easily find motivation. I explain this in more detail  in my post Mindset For Success.

    I found your post to be informative and immensely helpful to those lacking motivation. When it comes to my own motivation one the aspects I am currently working on is focusing very intensely on what my main goal is and every detail that comes with attainment. I have found that if a person lacks motivation they are not yet ready to attain what they so desire. What do you think?
