4 Ways to Stay Motivated

From 'How to Change Your Mindset + Live Your Most Fabulous Life'

No matter how motivated and positive we feel most of the time, we all have those moments when we feel discouraged and just down. Fortunately, there are ways to deal with this. Here are a few strategies I use when I'm feeling discouraged and unmotivated that you can use, too:

  1. Be proud of what you have done. So, you've hit a roadblock, and you can't seem to think about anything else. Well, you have accomplished some other goals, right? Celebrate the things you have done, and focus on what you can do better next time.
  2. Don't compare yourself to other people. Speaking from my own experience, this is one of the worst things you can do. Instead of wasting time trying to figure out how she did it, put that energy toward improving yourself and making your own dreams come true. Stay focused on doing you, stay in your lane, and walk in the unique purpose God has laid out for you.
  3. Remember why you set the goal in the first place. After you've been working toward something for a long time, and things aren't happening exactly the way you want, it can be easy to forget the reason you set the goal, which can cause you want to give up. So, remembering the WHY can help you keep moving forward.
  4. Remember that it's not really about you. Your purpose and mission in life is so much bigger than you; it's about the legacy you're leaving on this earth and the people you're serving. When you're feeling down, think about all the people you're helping and the ways you are touching their lives.

What are some ways you stay motivated and encouraged?
