15 Ways to Get and Keep Motivated

Ways to Get and Keep Motivated

No matter what you do for a living, the key to success is motivating yourself, each and every day. “Getting and keeping motivated puts you in control of your actions and your career, thereby lessening stress,” says Geoffrey James, author of Business Without the Bullsh*t: 49 Secrets and Shortcuts You Need to Know. Here’s how to remain a go-getter, even when the going gets rough. “Even implementing a handful of these changes can have a major effect on your health and your attitude.”

  1. Realize that YOU are in control. You cannot control the outside world, but you can control your emotional reaction to it.

  2. Accept where you are. Life is like those signs that read “You Are Here.” You can get somewhere else only if you know where you are now.

  3. Adopt a positive vocabulary. Use strong adjectives (e.g., “fantastic”) to describe what’s good and weak words (e.g., “annoying”) to describe what’s not.

  4. Condition your mind. Train yourself to think positive thoughts while avoiding negative thoughts.

  5. Condition your body. It takes physical energy to take action. Get your food and exercise budget in place and follow it like a business plan.

  6. Avoid negative people. They drain your energy and waste your time, so hanging with them is like shooting yourself in the foot.

  7. Seek out the similarly motivated. Their positive energy will rub off on you, and you can imitate their success strategies.

  8. Have goals — but remain flexible. No plan should be cast in concrete, lest it become more important than achieving the goal.

  9. Act with a higher purpose. Any activity or action that doesn’t serve your higher goal is wasted effort—and should be avoided.

  10. Take responsibility. If you blame (or credit) luck, fate, or divine intervention, you’ll always have an excuse.

  11. Stretch past your limits. Walking the old, familiar paths is how you grow old. Stretching makes you grow and evolve.

  12. Don’t expect perfection. Perfectionists are the losers in the game of life. Strive for excellence rather than the unachievable.

  13. Celebrate your failures. Your most important lessons in life will come from what you don’t achieve. Take time to understand where you fell short.

  14. Don’t take success too seriously. Success can breed tomorrow’s failure if you use it as an excuse to become complacent.

  15. Avoid weak goals. Goals are the soul of achievement, so never begin them with “I’ll try …” Always start with “I will” or “I must.”
