Isn't a lack of daily motivation one of biggest problems we face when trying to better ourselves? We often know what to do, or at least first few steps. But we hesitate, something else catches our attention, or we just don't feel like doing what we need to do.
Want some help? Here are seven ways to get motivated - ways that have worked for others. If you find only one or two here that work for you, you'll be on your way.
Seven Methods For Daily Motivation
1. Create desire. See rewards of your effort clearly. This motivates many to sign up for get-rich-quick plans. A good salesman can have you living in your imagined dream home in minutes, and you'll feel motivated to do anything to make it real. Learn to be your own salesman.
2. Create pain. In Neuro-Linguistic Programming they teach you to link pain with not acting. An imaginary scene of your wife walking out door with another man, as you sit there silently - that might motivate you to have that talk you've been avoiding.
3. Talk about your plans. By time I tell my wife about newsletter I'm going to write, I'm out of my slump and back at keyboard.
4. Have a true interest. No interest at all might mean you need to do something else, but if it's just a task you dislike, relate it clearly in your mind to greater goal. I don't like to drive, but when I remember those mountains I'm going to, I get motivated to drive.
