Suppose you often fail to reach your targets, though you begin your project enthusiastically. If this happens often, it is time for you to check your intrinsic motivational levels. An internally-motivated person shows a lot of positive attitude towards his goals. He often finds ways to rejuvenate and keep himself on track in the face of adversity. This is how he makes himself a winner. However, motivation can fade away at a single instance of adversity. But it will no longer do so when you make it a habit. You need to make building self-motivation a habit rather than a “once-a-while” activity.
For success in this, follow the steps suggested here:
This is where many of us fail. We tend to start straightaway by giving more than our 100 percent to get results. This will, more often than not, drain on our energies. Worse, if we do not get the expected results, we lose interest and give up.
So, it is better for you to start the plan gradually. You work on it in small but equally distributed time slots. In between, do something which you truly enjoy, such as your favorite pastime. This can help you avoid miserable burnouts.
Maintain Associations of Pain or Pleasure
This is an effective technique in that it alerts you to the miserable consequences of your inaction. Supposing you procrastinate over your tasks, you can visualize having to do everything at the last minute or get a rap from your boss or partner. This is a pain association.
Now, visualize yourself receiving accolades when you finish the task on time to perfection. This is a pleasure association. These kinds of associations keep your desire to achieve something intense.
Develop Realistic and Achievable Goals
It is important to have realistic goals. This is because success breeds success and not the other way around. So, divide your long-term objective into short-term tasks. Now, divide short-term tasks into sub-tasks. Go about doing them.
Do a Variety of Things
Doing the same thing over a long time can make your life monotonous. So, do a variety of activities. However, ensure these activities are too distant from your objectives. You will develop a lot of confidence if you find several ways of achieving your goals.
Read Inspirational Stories
Get into the habit of reading about the life and achievements of great individuals. This will be a great source of inspiration for you. Listen to motivational speakers. You can overcome fatigue and keep yourself ready for the tasks ahead.
Motivation is not something which always comes from external sources. It should be cultivated through conscious and deliberate attempts for lasting and sustainable results. So, get motivated.
