I have found that it is extremely important to keep your energy going to achieve goals. People have trouble finding and keeping motivation so it’s difficult to achieve goals. It’s no easy task to accomplish goals so it’s important to maintain that motivation. It is something I always have to do everyday; is find the motivation so I can be productive.
One way I find it is by writing my goals down every day and the reasons for going after them. You want to know why you are going after certain specific goals so that it keeps you going. The “why” is more important than the “how” because you can endure most things when you know the “why?” I found this website which discusses the ways to keep motivation going so you have plenty of ideas: Keep The Motivation Going.
One of the suggestions from this website that I really like is “write clear goals.” I do this every day because it helps keep my focus. I also write down and read my reasons why I am pursuing each goal so I keep my energy. Another important thing to do in my view is exercise because it gets you out of the house. Getting out of the house and going for a walk is important. You start to feel like you are in prison after awhile if you don’t get out and exercise. I am self employed and do a great deal of work out of my house, so exercise is important.
The use of affirmation is another great idea too! I might be doing that already without realizing it. I like the idea of creating a custom environment especially when I can add Star Wars to it! Another thing, I wouldn’t mind adding a few Star Wars or magic pictures to my work setting because it’s me!
