When you’re motivated, creating new habits becomes easier and when you create new habits staying motivated becomes easier too. Here are seven habits of highly motivated people.
1. Find your why
If you climb a mountain simply because it’s there, that’s probably not enough to keep you going when the going gets tough. If you know WHY you do what you do and it matters to you, then you will find your strength in any situation.
2. Change what you believe is possible
So many people don’t really lack motivation. Instead, they lack models of what’s possible; they have limited beliefs of what’s achievable.
3. Change your limits
Push yourself out of your comfort zone and get rid of those annoying internal voices that say “You are limited in what you can do.” The way that you stop yourself from moving past something that is limiting you is when you stand in your own way.
4. Find your values
With your values in mind, you can connect your daily work back to your values. Not only does it help you find your motivation, it also helps you live that good life.
5. Surround yourself with motivators
Firstly, make sure you are your own motivator. Find the catalysts who lift you up and bring out the best in you.
6. Feedback to maximise progress
In order to grow as a person, you must always continue to learn. If you can focus on progress, you improve both your happiness and your motivation.
7. Compelling goals
Frame the goal in such a way that you are drawn to both the outcome and the journey as an adventure that you will enjoy- challenges and all. Learn how to push your own buttons and motivate yourself with skill.
