How to Get Motivated

Motivation is a flow that must be harnessed rather than a simple “yes” or “no” condition of being.😤

Purpose distinguishes the motivated from the unmotivated and is maintained by meaning and onward progress. To be motivated, you must first understand why you are demotivated and then address those concerns. As a result, it is critical to recognize that motivation must be self-sustaining and long-lasting, much like the Sun, which provides a steady input of energy to all life on Earth.

Developing a self-sustaining motivation engine will make your jobs and obligations less of a hassle, giving your life more purpose and delight.

It is easy to become demotivated when you lack clarity on why you’re doing what you’re doing. It’s essential to know your “whys” and understand what’s stopping you from pursuing them. Sometimes the work is not worth pursuing, and it’s necessary to pivot and find new motivations.

To reinitiate your motivation you need what’s called a SPARK. This could be an idea, a feeling, friends, family, and any support network you’ve created in your life. Positive enablers can magnify your motivation and create favorable circumstances for things to go smoothly.

Here are some tips to stay motivated in your day to day:

  1. Believe in yourself: Have faith in your abilities and trust that you can accomplish what you set out to do.
  2. Take action: Don’t wait for opportunities to come to you – create them by taking action and pursuing your goals with determination and persistence.
  3. Be open-minded: Embrace new ideas and perspectives, and be willing to change your mind when presented with new information.
  4. Learn from failure: Don’t be afraid to fail, but use your failures as learning opportunities to grow and improve.
  5. Be kind: Treat others with kindness and respect, and seek to make a positive difference in the lives of those around you.

However, it’s crucial to understand that external acknowledgment and recognition, or rewards, will motivate you but won’t necessarily make you happier in an undesirable situation. Your innermost being, or your purpose, is the most crucial part of the motivation engine. Your purpose is what drives you, gives you meaning, and differentiates you from others.
