Ingredients of staying motivated

Do you find it a problem to stick to habits? Have you ever found it difficult to stay motivated? Do you lose interest quickly? You start on a new habit, very energetic and motivated. You stay on it for the first week, then start skipping days where you postpone practice. By the end of the second week, you lose all the interest and motivation and you feel down. Have you ever asked yourself why you always lose interest and feel demotivated after the first few days. Well, there is good news, one thing is that you are not alone and second, there is a solution. Below are the key ingredients for motivation:

  • Find your why (purpose)

When you start a new habit, you need to know the purpose or why you want to do it. What are you aspiring to be? Keep this purpose within your sight along the way and always remind yourself of it. For example, you want to lose weight for better health. Don’t lose sight of that purpose to keep on going. A clear sense of purpose enables you to focus your efforts on what matters most, compelling you to take risks and push forward regardless of the odds or obstacles.

German philosopher Frederick Nietzsche once said, ‘He who has a why can endure any how.’

  • Have a clear goal

When you have a clear visualization of the end result you want to achieve, you will have a destination that you want to arrive at. Remembering and having that in mind will motivate you on your journey.

  • Choose your circle

Take motivation from others, surround yourself with positive people or support groups with the same interest. Feel inspired by reading books, talking to your mentor or friends or family who have reached similar goals to the ones you have set. A mentor is someone who is experienced in the habit you want to change.

  • Evaluate yourself

Pause and review your progression and goals and see if they are realistic in the timeframe you have set. You may need to break your goal down further into smaller and more achievable goals. At the completion of a step or goal, reward yourself.

  • Discipline

Discipline is the ability to self-motivate and keep you going when your curiosity, motivation, and excitement evaporate. Self-discipline allows you to stay focused on your goals. It enables you to stay in control of yourself and of your reaction to any situation.
