Do you struggle to find what drives you at times? You have this big goal you want to achieve, but for one reason or another you just can't seem to get yourself motivated. You're fraught to find the motivation you need to take inspired action towards the significant goal. As a result, your kind of feel as though your life is stagnating. You feel stuck and kind of unable to move forward. Inside though you feel very restless. You know you can achieve this goal, but now you're just unable to move forward. What to do? Well, there are six amazing ways to get motivated which might help you get released and achieve your goal.



1) FIND EMPOWERING REASONS

You need to have a compelling reason that drives you forward. In other words, you must know precisely why do you want to accomplish your goal. However, this isn't just about knowing why you want something, it's rather about understanding the true value of pursuing that goal and how it can afterwards help improve your life and circumstances. Keeping this in mind, list down all the benefits of achieving your goal. Moreover, as you work through key tasks and activities, list down why taking these specific actions is important, and how these actions can potentially help you achieve your goal.

2) BUILD AN INSPIRING WORKSPACE

It can be quiet tough to get motivated while working within an apathetic environment. A workspace which is disorderly, unpleasant and will make you feel uncomfortable, and may even divert you from your main objective. For this very reason, it's vital to carefully craft an inspiring workspace that will keep you energized, focused and motivated. Keeping this in mind, build a workspace that is distraction free, practical, organized, uncluttered, clean and inspiring. Make sure it has all the tools you need to stay productive and focused throughout the day.

3) DEVELOP A REWARD SYSTEM

Rewards can be used to fuel our motivation over an extended period. This is specifically of value while pursuing long-term goals. Chasing these goals can, of course, be challenging. Challenging because these goals are often made up of many different components that need to fit together to bring your goal to life. Managing all these parts takes a significant amount of effort - requiring short bursts of motivation. It can be helpful to turn long-term goals into short-term milestones that are built upon a hierarchy of rewards.

4) CREATE A MORNING ROUTINE

How you begin your day sets the scene for what's to come. If you begin your day in an inspiring way, then this makes it easier to find the motivation you need to stay productive and focused. If on the other hand, you start your day in an uninspiring and hectic way, then you're likely to get lost in a sea of distractions. High achievers often have a very specific morning routine that helps them get their day started on the right track. This morning routine often involves a blend of reading, meditation, goal setting, workout and journaling. What kind of morning routine could you create that would help you stay focused and inspired?

5) HIRE A MOTIVATION BUDDY

One of the most active ways to get motivated comes in the form of responsibility. When we feel accountable for our actions, we naturally feel more motivated and inclined to follow through with the promises we make. Personal accountability is, of course, remarkable. However, it's not as influential as the accountability that comes along with a motivation buddy. A motivation buddy can be a friend, colleague, mentor or coach who regularly holds you accountable for your actions. You update them of the steps you will take towards completing your goal.

6) DESIGN A VISION POSTER

Motivation comes to us in diverse ways. Some will for instance hear something that encourages them. Others might read something, or get a feeling from doing something which immediately motivates them to take proactive action. We all of course have our own personal triggers for finding drive. One trigger which is common for most is a vision poster. This is very much a collage of inspiring words, sketches, pictures and quotes designed to keep you focused on your goals. Take some time to create a memorable vision poster, then use it as a source of daily encouragement.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS

Though motivation may initially take a little thought, however once you understand your triggers for motivation, it's not so difficult at all to find the motivation you need to chase your goals. In fact, combining several motivation triggers can become a major source of inspiration that will help you build the energy you need to achieve your goals. It of course might take a little experimentation at first.

At times, you will find motivation one way, while at other times you will find it another way. In fact, you may need to change and adjust your approach depending on your circumstances. What worked in the past may very well not work in the present moment, or in this situation.

To get motivated over the long-run takes ongoing effort and adaptation. Just as we need to eat food to keep ourselves fueled and energized throughout the day, we also need a source of daily motivation to drive us forward toward the accomplishment of our goals and objectives.
