We all go through times where motivation is low, and in fact, where motivation is positively starving! So, I’ve devised 5 Ways to Get Motivated When you Don’t Feel Like it.
I know that I have times like this and the one thing that gets me back on track is my big “Why”.
Most people, especially women, are not motivated by money alone. What motivates human beings is all the great stuff that we can do with that money. The money is merely the vehicle that drives us to our Paradise Island.
What vacations we would go on? What great schools or universities we would send our kids to? What lovely dream house we could have? What charity or cause we could fund? And then there’s spa days and restaurants of our choice. The list goes on.
So, if you are feeling motivated, you need to have a way to remind yourself WHY you are doing this all in the first place.
These things drive you because of the reward that you will get when you have done what you need to do. This is called Extrinsic Motivation.
And then we need Intrinsic Motivation: This means a person does things simply because of interest or enjoyment. The act of doing the behavior is itself the reward. So, being motivated has a lot to do with loving what we do because enjoying the doing is reward in itself.
With this in mind, I’ve devised a simple action plan on getting motivated or re-motivated or even adding more juice to the motivation you have if you feel it might be on the way to lagging a bit.
5 Ways to get motivated when you don’t feel like it:
1: Make a list with the title “WHY?” at the top of it. And write down all the reasons why you want to be successful and to make money. It’s usually a lot about other people as well as ourselves.
