Discover How to Stay Motivated and Be Successful


If you surveyed 50 people asking each their definition ofsuccess, chances are you would receive fifty different answers. Even so, there are certain steps everyone must follow in order tobe successful. One of the most important is - stayingmotivated.

Do you have a new job? Have you started your own business? Areyou in the process of earning a degree? Do you have the desireto lose weight? If one of these scenarios are a recent event inyour life, you are probably still excited about the opportunity. That also probably means you are motivated, as well. Excitementand motivation, often, work hand in hand.

But, how do you stay motivated after several weeks or months havegone by? How do you maintain the same level of excitement thatyou had when you began your new adventure?

There are many things you can do to stay motivated. It isimportant to set aside a few minutes or more, each day, in aneffort to keep your motivation level at its highest. There willbe days that you may feel less motivated then usual. Let's faceit; we all have a bad day now and then. So, by doing all thatyou can to maintain a positive attitude, your "down days" willprobably be few and far between.

Read a book. There are hundreds of books that have been writtenon the topic of motivation. Visit your local bookstore orlibrary and browse the shelves. Ask the clerk or librarian forauthor and title recommendations. Both will be happy to helpyou.

If you have a busy schedule, don't despair. Set aside 15 or 20minutes each day. Even if you only read a few pages, during thattime, it WILL help to keep you motivated. I do it and can attestto the fact that it really DOES work!

If you are in the process of achieving a goal such as weight lossor top salesperson, make a "dream board". A dream board is aposter, of sorts. If a trimmer figure is your goal, cut outpictures of the new wardrobe you will someday buy.

If you dream of out-selling your peers, find pictures of yourdream home or vacation destination... of the new car you wouldLOVE to drive. Make a collage with these pictures and hand itsomewhere where you will see it each day.

There are many other things you can do to stay motivated. Believe in yourself. Stay healthy. Maintain a positiveattitude.

You will be amazed at what you can achieve!
