It is hardly a secret that the key to successfully accomplishing one goal after another is staying motivated. There are, of course, tasks which you may not like at all, yet you find motivation to complete even them because you recognize how each particular task serves a greater goal.
How exactly do some of us manage to stay motivated most of the time? Here are just a few ideas you can try:
Did you know that when you succeed, your brain releases an endorphin into your blood stream which helps you stay motivated for a little longer? Finish the most difficult task first and you can then easily finish the other ones.
Don't give yourself too much time to be depressed or for negative thoughts to overpower your thinking. Staying busy is a simple but effective way of staying motivated. Also, by staying busy, you ensure that you're working on a solution to your problem.
Stop cribbing about your problems all the time. Instead of just complaining 24x7, try and see the positive sides of the problem. If you're unhappy in your family life, try and count your blessings at work. See the bright side.
This is perhaps the biggest step to staying motivated. Accept failure and be a sport about it. Don't blame yourself or the circumstances. Instead, identify the areas you lacked in and the reason why you failed. Improve yourself, don't beat yourself up.
