Staying Focused and Motivated

Thursday, September 24, 2020

We all know that making changes and working on goals is a hard enough undertaking on its own. It requires a great and constant amount of motivation to reach success in what you’re endeavouring to accomplish. It takes both inspiration and motivation every day to stay focused and on point.

I found these to be helpful

Have clear goals.

The journey to create success has to start with a plan and that plan is created by the goals you set. Your goals are your why and the reasons you’re on this journey. They should be clear, actionable. They should be written down either in a note on your computer or phone, or on something like a vision board. Know what you want from your life and how your goals can help you get there one day at a time. For some, it may mean breaking it up throughout the day in blocks of time.

Preplan the night before.

In addition, to having a clear plan line, one should be organized as well, a daily routine that also allows for compromisable changes (secondary goals) should that inevitable monkey wrench be tossed in. Taking the time the night before to plan your days. A lot of times people get frustrated by a lack of organization. Spend a little time each night setting priorities and then secondary goals that you’ll get to if you accomplish all of the priorities.

The Importance of Enough ZZZZS.

A major reason you may have a lack of motivation is that you’re not getting enough sleep. What the proper amount is will of course be different for each person reading this, but you better believe in the importance of a good night’s rest. It’s easy to sacrifice sleep in hopes of getting more accomplished. You tell yourself that the goal is too important—it is, but being rested is equally as important.

This is Your Brain on Not Enough Sleep

Have That All Important “You” Time.

Our lives are hectic and stressful. We need a break at times. A block of time that should be yours alone—you should have some time away from everything and everybody to collect your thoughts and refocus. That time could be spent meditating or simply closing your eyes and tuning out your hectic schedule, getting mentally prepared to do battle all that you’ll have to deal on a daily basis.

Avoid Those Things You Know Distract You.

To stay focused and motivated, you have to avoid the things that will set you off course. Two of the most distracting and time stealers are technology and the Internet—they can both help and hurt your progress. Another is to avoid those people that aren’t trying to get ahead in life. Their negative words and actions will feed into your self-limiting beliefs and hurt your motivation. Surround yourself with people who inspire you to be more in life.

Schedule “inspiration” time.

In your daily planning, set aside time to get motivated and inspired. Read a good book, watch a video that helps you see life and your goals in a different light. A daily dose of inspiration will help you keep those self-limiting beliefs at bay.

Remind yourself that time is precious.

Life is short. We know this, but too often we don’t live our life that way. When you view life and time as precious, you tend not to waste it. You’re accomplishing these goals to create a life of freedom—always remember your why.

The best way to accomplish any goal is to break it down into bite-size daily goals. The reason you want needs to stay motivated each day is because focusing on one day at a time is the best way to achieve success. You want to have a general plan, but the daily execution is what helps you make progress.

You have everything you need to make changes and accomplish those goals. You can do things that too many people believe are impossible if you believe and then take action. Use these tips to stay motivated each day.
