How to Motivate Yourself

Learn how to motivate yourself from life coach Stephanie Florman in this Howcast video.


Motivation is all about accountability and it's also about knowing your why. It's not enough to know what you are looking to do, you need to have the why behind it. So to get motivated the first thing that you need is a support system, you need a success team, you need somebody in your life that you are going to be accountable to who is going to hold you to your commitments whether that is a coach or whether that is a friend whether that's a family member whether that's a therapist, somebody who has your best interest in their minds and in their heart and who really is going to make you keep your word to yourself. After you get the success team in place than you have to figure out your why and the reason why you have to know your why is because any time we set out to achieve a goal or to create a specific outcome we experience roadblocks, we experience obstacles, we experience challenges and if we don't know why we are doing what we are doing any one of those setbacks will actually set us back. You know if you keep hitting the same closed door there might be a reason why and it may be time to stop and regroup. But maybe it means that the path that you are on is not the best path and may mean that you need to trust in that closed door because many times what we tend to do is focus on the closed door and fail to recognize all of the open doors that could lead us to that same goal. So when it comes to motivation we need to know our why, we need to stay on track; but we also need to be open, we need to allow for synchronicity to take over, we need to allow for miracles to come in to help us along the way. So when you know your why and you are prepared for those challenges and you have a whole support system of people around you who are rooting for you to achieve your goals, what happens is that the setbacks become milestones and you are able to then celebrate every step that you take. The last piece that I encourage when I comes to staying motivated is reward; you need to break down your vision in some manageable steps and reward yourself every step along the way. You need to keep yourself excited, you need to keep yourself passionate and you need to keep yourself on track.
