I’m going to provide you with the most powerful motivators I know because motivation is the ultimate key to success.
If you’re motivated to do something, then you can move mountains.
If you’re not motivated, then zero will be achieved.
As a Coach, my number one objective for you is to ensure that you are adequately motivated to achieve the success you deserve.
Be it career success, be it a personal development goal or be it a business target.
Without the motivation though there is no point in coaching because you simply won’t succeed.
Personal development, career progression and business success take motivation to achieve.
Don’t listen to anyone who tells you otherwise.
Are you getting the drift as to how important motivation is?!
As such, I thought I would give you a brief description of the key things that I know will guarantee motivation.
Here we go:
Consequences of Not Achieving
Write out the consequences of not achieving your goal. This has an extremely powerful way of focussing the mind and pushing you. If you’re fully aware of what will or won’t happen as a result of non-achievement, it will drive you to success.
Identify your weaknesses to achieving the goal (ask a friend or a colleague to help you) and then work on removing them. If you remove your weaknesses, then there will be no stopping you, plus the positive mental boost you will receive from doing this is amazing.
Read or listen to as many motivating books or podcasts as you possibly can without becoming overwhelmed. Listening to a good personal development book does absolute wonders for motivation. Look at my blog post – 10 Best Self-Help Books for inspiration.
The Benefits of Achievement
The reverse of the above and just as effective, write a list of the benefits of achieving your goal. What exactly are the positives that achieving the goal will bring to your life? If that doesn’t motivate you, I’m not sure what will.
Energy & Happiness
Identify the things that give you energy (working out for example) and make you happy (spending time with you kids), make a list of all of them and ensure that you make them part of your everyday life. Obviously, the things that make you happy and give you energy are going to give you more motivation.
Identify the people who motivate you, tell them what you need to achieve and ask them to help you stay motivated. The power you can get from other people to help motivate you is amazing, even more so, they can help you when you’re feeling demotivated. If you can afford it, get a coach to help you like me. We are professionals at helping our clients achieve their goals and to stay motivated!
The possibility of a reward is a sweetener in the process of achieving. If an employer is looking to motivate their employees for example, one of the best ways to motivate employees is to incentivise them. The same applies to you personally. To keep yourself motivated to achieve something promise yourself a reward upon completion.
Get Fit & Get Nutritious
Before you can consider being motivated it’s vital that you are getting adequate exercise and good nutrition on a daily basis. Read by free e-book on Instant Happiness to find out why, but in a nutshell, there is zero point working on your motivation if your body is not being supported properly. It’s two simple equations:
Exercise + Nutritious Diet = HAPPINESS
Happiness + Goal = MOTIVATION
