Staying Motivated

Staying Motivated : Major(R)Khaid Nasr
Here are tips for staying motivated:
1.Have a vision for your life:The root word of motivation is “motive.” The definition of motive is, “A reason to act.” This is the cognitive or rational side of motivation. It is your vision. You have to have a vision that is big enough to motivate you. If you are making Rs50,0000 a year, it isn’t going to motivate you to set your goal at Rs52,0000 a year. You just won’t get motivated for that because the reward isn’t enough. Maybe Rs70,0000 a year would work for you. Set out a vision and a strategy for getting there. Have a plan and work the plan. 2.Fuel your passion: Much of motivation is emotional.Emotion is a powerful force in getting us going. Passion is an emotion, so fuel your passion. “Well, I like to work on logic,” you may say. Great, now work on your passion. Set yourself on a course to have a consuming desire for your goal, whatever it is. Do whatever you can to feel the emotion and use it to your advantage.
3.Work hard enough to get results:You can build on your motivation by getting results. The harder you work, the more results you will get and the more results you get, the more you will be motivated to get more. These things all build on one another. If you want to lose weight, then lose the first few pounds. When the belt moves to the next notch you will get fired up to get it to the notch beyond that. 4.Put good materials into your mind:Read good books. Read books that teach you new ideas and skills. Read books that tell the stories of successful people. Buy them, read them, and get motivated!It gets you going and motivates you!
5.Ride the momentum when it comes:Sometimes you will just be clicking and sometimes you won’t. That is okay. It is the cycle of life. When you aren’t clicking, plug away. When you are clicking, pour it on because momentum will help you get larger gains in a shorter period of time with less energy. That is the Momentum Equation! When you are feeling good about how your work is going, ride the momentum and get as much out of it as you can! These are the top six ways to stay motivated: 1.Get motivated every day.2. Have a vision for your life.3.Fuel your passion.4.Work hard enough to get results.5. Put good materials into your mind.6.Ride the momentum when it comes.
These are simple principles, that when you put them to work regularly, will change your life by keeping you motivated all the time.
