Recipe for staying motivated (quick and easy only 5 ingredients)

motivation

  1. Have a purpose

 

Having a purpose means you are trying to accomplish something for a reason. Verify what your why is. Once you determined what your why is then it is much more meaningful therefore you are able to accomplish your goals more consistently.

 

  1. Be responsible for your own actions

 

This doesn’t mean that you point the finger to one person or another. It just means you move forward with the next action to accomplish your goals. Setbacks  will come but blaming someone else and that includes yourself, is not productive. Get back out there and try it again.

 

  1. Don’t wait for the perfect time.

 

Just do it!!! Perfectionists are notorious for not taking action until the time is perfect. The true fulfillment comes from being free to take action and not being so caution that you don’t even try to see what you can accomplish.

 

  1. Eat Wisely

 

Eating wisely not only motivates you but it gives you the energy you need to succeed. Without this one ingredient, success would be hard to accomplish. It’s hard to stay motivated on a diet of refine sugars

 

  1. Find motivated people to hang around

 

The old saying goes birds of a feather flock together. If you are hanging around people that are not motivating you to do anything, then you will continue to do the things that they are doing. If you hang around people full of energy and with a purpose then you will start to see a change in yourself.

  1. Excellent write up. Two points that I can immediately relate to.
    1. I am a ‘perfectionist’ and find that the need to perfect things does slow my progress and often leaves me suffering from paralysis. Thank you for making me realise that I need not be perfect. After all is there such thing as ‘perfection’? Perhaps it only exists on paper.

    2. I am a comfort eater and have a terrible sweet tooth. Sugar has now been proven to be an addictive substance and something needs to be done to protect our health. Well done for reminding us to eat well. I hope that by acknowledging my weakness I am on the way to dealing with the problem.

    Thank you so much.

    • Thank you for your response. I think that being a perfectionist is just a sure way of trying to stay in control of things. In reality it is only an anchor that leads of to excuses most of the time. When you are able to acknowledge and identify those weaknesses, it’s a sign of maturity. I use to be a comfort eater. Since I have learned to identify the root of the problem to comfort eating. I am able to do other things like exercise, or drink water. I think you are well on your way. Thank you for following.
