Thank you so much for your interest in The Insight, by Sheba. I hope you enjoyed this week’s blogs about “Stay Motivated.”
Next week’s topic will be “Building Resilience.”
Friday Review: Happy Reading!
- Don’t discredit the words of wisdom someone offers you just because he or she may have different views from your own. Consider the fresh perspective. Ask yourself why you may or may not agree. Consider the possible outcomes in using the advice whether or not it goes against the grain of your normal course of action. Take advantage of the opportunity to expand your perspective and fortify your motivation.
- Motivation will not spontaneously generate. We have to take action to cultivate personal states of contentedness and motivation.
- Understanding what motivates you is just as important as creating and implementing strategies to support that motivation. Familiarize yourself with your strengths and weaknesses. Ask yourself what you value most in accomplishment. Based on those elements, develop a strategy to support you in your goal pursuit. We’re bound to lose motivation at one point or another, but if we’ve prepared a plan and always carry the right tools with us, we’ll be up and motivated again in no time!
4. Plan On It!
- At any given time, we have a number of goals on our plates. Create specific plans with specific means to achieve each of your goals then take one step at a time to accomplish them. It is unrealistic to think we can accomplish all of our goals at once, but if we divide our attention among different goals, we also divide our motivation.
The Insight— Plan, plan again, then do some more planning to stay motivated! Granted, we can’t always plan the words of wisdom we will receive, but if you set up a support team and plan to ask them for specific advice, you will certainly have the necessary encouragement to stay motivated. Likewise, planning a goal around your strengths and abilities will help you to know your limits and know when you can push them from time to time. Expect to lose motivation at some point in your pursuit. It happens, and that’s okay. If you’re prepared to meet it, you’ll have the proper tools to pick up and refresh your motivation so you can finish the last leg of the race!
Have a wonderful weekend!
