Motivation comes easy for some but is difficult for most. Uncover your full potential and get motivated by giving yourself a mission and setting goals.
Step 1: Write down goals Write down goals that you want to achieve. Keep the list in a place where you can read it every day and recite your goals out loud every morning.
Step 2: Set a date Set a date to accomplish your goals.
Step 3: Look at pros and cons Review the consequences of not meeting your goals and focus on the benefits.
Step 4: Start moving Take definite, measurable steps to achieve your goal.
TIP: If you slip up, get back on track until you achieve your desired success.
Step 5: Get support Ask a friend or relative to keep you accountable for reaching your goals and to support you along the way.
Step 6: Get a partner Invite a friend or relative to join you through your journey. Find someone who shares your interests and goals. Motivate each other to attain your goals.
Step 7: Reward yourself Reward yourself for reaching your goals. You will be more motivated to accomplish your tasks with a tempting incentive.
