Techniques to stay motivated

We, professionals, are now on the final leg of the year. We have worked hard for the past ten months but remember the race is not yet over. We are aware that we have done our best and tried our level best to achieve the targets or KPIs set and already feeling tired and looking forward to the Christmas and New Year vacations. In such a situation we must know how to motivate ourselves in order to stay positive and achieve what we are supposed to achieve. It could be personal goals or professional goals. Our week’s blog will discuss some techniques that will help you get motivated and be successful.

Hold yourself back
We all have energy at the beginning and will think of going all out. This is not the best practice. We should let only 50% to 60% of our energy at the start and gradually increase it by telling yourself that you going a bit extra every time. This way you will rein your energy and harness it thereby going beyond what you once thought is possible.

Join Social Groups
It is a good idea to be in touch with like minded people or people with same interest / experience. We get an opportunity to share our successes and failures. People in the forums would provide great advise that will motivate and correct our failures.

Keep your goal visible
Visualizing the goal would motivate one to achieve it. You should try to place the image of your goal in a place which is more visible to you and you often view.

Make it a pleasure
Most of the time we carryout tasks for the sake of doing them. That is one of the main reasons why we do not achieve success. You should make your goal activity a treat which in return will make you look for it. This will lead you to do it with passion and be good at it or be successful at it.

Give things time
Greater success does not happen instantly although we love instant results. Hence if you do not see or get the results you desire to, give it more time and do not give up. In the meantime enjoy your progress.

Make mini goals
Sometimes large or longer-term goals can be overwhelming. After a couple weeks, we may lose motivation, because we still have several months or a year or more left to accomplish the goal. It’s hard to maintain motivation for a single goal for such a long time. Hence we should break them into small or mini goals which would be achieved quickly and that will boost the motivation levels.

Reward yourself
Each of the mini goals that you have broken your long term goal in to should have a reward. At the time of achieving each and every mini goal, you should reward yourself.
