5 Easy Ways to STAY Motivated
By Martha Giffen
It's one thing to GET motivated in life. It's quite another
to STAY in the motivation zone. Here is a list of ideas you
may be able to utilize, with good wishes that you will find
them easy to implement in your own situation:
Congratulations! You have gained sponsorship and a shiny,
brand-new vehicle; your engine is roaring on all cylinders;
you are ready to roll around the success track!
The trick will be not to run out of umpity-go before you
reach the finish line. You wont want to take time to
refuel, so here are some ideas to make your race a little
1. Look into the rear view mirror as you watch the fast
track! This means that you must consider all your prior
successes as you charge ahead. What did you accomplish
during your school years? How did you stand out in prior
positions of employment? Can you list the places you spun
your wheels that makes you grin with pride? What does your
family say about you when they take out bragging rights?
What feeds your PASSIONS?
2. Break it up; no breaking down! Don't make the mistake of
believing you can win a race on the first trip around the
track. Focus with a clear head and pay close attention to
details and take your journey one lap at a time. Even
babies know they have to crawl before they walkyou must
recognize that inch by inch your race will be a cinch!
3. Learn from your past failures! Even though you feel
invincible when you turn the key on your newest project, the
fact of the matter is that you may need to consider the junk
in your trunk that did not work as well as you would like.
Remember how embarrassed you felt when your science project
in Middle School went awry? How about that blind date with
the girl who had funny hair? Also, it behooves you to keep
in mind the test you only THOUGHT youd aced in college! You
probably dont wish to think about it but remembering past
failures keeps you focused on WINNING NOW!
4. Tweak things! Even the finest engines suffer mechanical
failures. New tires can cause blowouts. If the needle on
the oil indicator jiggles, take the time to assess the
situation and retool whatever needs to be changed. It may
save you a great deal of time before you reach the finish
5. Believe! You know for sure that if you can BELIEVE the
results you crave then you will SEE those results. All
great sports psychology gurus teach that you must VISUALIZE
the results you want. Documentation of visualizing winning
results for desired outcomes are legendary. In your minds
eye, SEE that checkered flag waving at YOUR finish line!
BELIEVE you can garner first prize on YOUR fast track to
Staying motivated is as easy as these five steps! Claim the
success you visualize for your very OWN! Just imagine how
good it will feel to drive that victory lap and carry home
YOUR super sized winners trophy!
