different and very competitive industries so I assumed he
was one of those naturally driven people.
I was wrong.
Everyday he has certain rituals he counts on to keep
himself motivated. Here are three tips you can start using
1. Spend at least five minutes a day on your goals.
Review your goals for the day and for the week. Then
imagine them as already achieved in your mind. See
the successful outcomes, hear people praising you, and feel
the glow of success.
Do this each day and you will stay focused even when you
have setbacks. You will stay motivated over time.
2. Meditate each day.
Take time each day to be still. Meditate, listen to
relaxing music or find another way that works for you and
give yourself some time just for you.
Turn off the TV, turn off the radio, let the phone ring out
and take a break from the demands people place on you each
Use this time to reflect on what you are doing and on what
you want to do next.
Very often, you will feel recharged and ready for action
after even 10 minutes, And you will often come up with
great new ideas for handling the problems you face.
When you feel refreshed it is easier to stay motivated.
This time invested in peace of mind will leave you feeling
renewed. And the more time you put into this the greater
3. Feed your mind positive information.
Make a point each day of reading a book or listening to a
tape to learn something new.
Spending time on personal development each day will help to
build your belief in what is possible for you.
In a world where so many people are negative we need to
counteract it with positive input every day, not just now
One final point...
If possible do not tune into the news when you are waking
up in the morning. Give yourself an hour before bombarding
your mind with negative news stories.
You have all day to follow the news if you want to. Just
give your mind a chance to focus before letting others
direct your thinking.
Use these simple tips each day and you will stay motivated.
