The Secret Motivation Strategy That Never Fails
No matter how much you want to make your dreams come true you still need some practical ways to keep yourself motivated over the long term. You need the ability to keep going in the face of setbacks, disappointments and short-term frustrations. i.e. a motivation technique that works.
Thankfully there is a simple and very powerful way to stay focused and highly motivated. Are you ready for a personal breakthrough?
1. Determine The Reasons Why You Want To Attain The Goal
Write down on paper the reasons why you want to succeed. List at least 50 reasons. This will take you 10 minutes of brainstorming. Just write down whatever pops into your head. Write as quickly as you can and keep going until you have a list of 50 great reasons.
(Don´t be fooled by how simple this motivation technique is)
2. Pick Out The Top 5 Reasons
Scan the list of reasons why you want to achieve your goal and pick out the reasons which have the most emotional charge for you. i.e the ones you feel strongly about. These are the reasons which will keep you motivated when obstacles show up.
And as you read over the top 5 reasons you may way feel a smile on your face and you will feel a new surge of motivation. This is the basis of this motivation technique - tap into the emotions that drive you.
3. Each Day Review The Top Reasons
On a daily basis take a moment to review the top 5 reasons why you want to achieve the goal. Read over the list and make sure to notice how you feel. These reasons move you emotionally because they are so important to you. When you feel strongly about these reasons motivation will be automatic.
Let me give you an example of how to use this motivation technique..
John wants to double his income but feels too overwhelmed at work to even concentrate on ways to earn more. He takes 10 minutes on his lunch break to scribble 50 reasons why he wants to double his income. Then he picks out the top 5 reasons - the ones that really move him emotionally.
What does he discover? The prospect of having more dollar signs does not inspire him to earn more but the following reasons do inspire him:
1. Feel more appreciated and respected by my wife
2. Become more successful in my career
3. Fulfill my potential at last
4. Get that top of the range car I´ve always wanted
5. Give more money to local charities
As a result John now has a sense of purpose that drives him to do all he can to achieve his goal.
The same applies to you...
When you tap into why you want to achieve you goals, on a daily basis, you will find the true source of your motivation.
Now get using this simple yet powerful motivation technique!
