We have all struggled to stay motivated at one point or another whether that is with work, school, going to the gym, etc. Motivation is the drive that we need to achieve our goals and needs. Having motivation is important to break old habits and develop new healthy ones. Below we have written 5 ways that you can stay motivated and achieve your goals. 

Visualise The Results

To help you to stay motivated, try and visualise the end results and what it will feel like to achieve your goals. For example, if you are training for a marathon, visualise the end result, visualise the feeling of finishing, etc. These thoughts will help you to remain motivated and work as your fuel on days when you do not feel like training or working towards this goal. 

Create A Mood Board

You can use Pinterest or go old school and use magazines and newspapers to create a visual mood board. You can go through websites or magazines and find quotes, images, etc of a goal that you want to work towards and you can always refer back to this board when you are feeling unmotivated and uninspired. 

Be Accountable

Hold yourself accountable. You can hold yourself accountable in many ways by having an accountability group, or a mentor. Holding yourself accountable and having someone to hold you accountable can be one of the most impactful ways to remain motivated as you can report your progress to someone else. Accountability is so important for those of you who may struggle to remain focused. If you have struggled to stay motivated, knowing that you have to explain yourself to someone else should hopefully be enough motivation to work towards your goals. 

Limit Any Distractions

Distractions can be a huge roadblock as to why you are struggling to reach your goals. Try to limit your distractions as much as possible. Turn off all of your distractions, for example, silence your phone, turn off your notifications, turn off anything you can and just focus on achieving your goals. Throughout the day you can set 5-10 minute intervals in order to check your phone in order to catch up on messages and other notifications. 

Do Not Compare Your Progress To Others

This is so important when you are trying to achieve your goals, do not compare your progress to others. It will be difficult for you to accomplish anything if you are constantly comparing yourself to others. This may cause you to lose focus and speed. Focus on your journey and stop paying attention to what other people are doing.
