How To Get Motivated When You Have An Off Day


What can you do on days like these? Is there a way to get motivated and stay motivated?

There are three simple yet powerful ways to pull yourself out of a slump. And best of all you can start using these strategies today.

1. Complete Something

It is very important to start and finish something when you need to get back on track. Pick a small task, one that can be done in 5-10 minutes.

Then ignore everything else and devote all of your attention to completing that task. When you have finished it you will feel a lot better about dealing with all of the other jobs that need to be done. One small success leads to much greater success. (and greater motivation)

Now, simply the repeat the process with another small task until you build some momentum and feel more motivated..

2. Set Tight Time Deadlines

On days that you feel sluggish work in 30 minute blocks. Tell yourself you only need to focus for the next 30 minutes and then get started on the next task at hand. If you feel very unmotivated work for 20 minute or even 15 minute time periods. The key is to get busy and do the best you can.

Then take a quick break and acknowledge the progress you are making. One small step after the next will take you to where you want to go.

You will be surprised at the difference this can make. You will little by little start to feel more motivated.

3. Read Or Listen To Motivational Material

You need to inspire yourself to greater success on a daily basis. This is important because of the negativity that bombards us from other people and the media. All that talk can weigh you down and leave you procrastinating even more.

If you dont take charge of your thinking someone else will do it for you. Thinking about the positive instead of the negative requires a daily commitment. It is a choice we all make each day.

And remember...

You are not expected to be highly motivated and driven on a empty tank. Give yourself positive fuel each and everyday and you will be consistently more motivated.

Make a point of feeding your mind with positive input each and every day and your attitude will become consistently more positive. You will feel more motivated even on the off days.
