Internal and external factors that stimulate desire and energy in people to be continually interested and committed to a job, role or subject, or to make an effort to attain a goal.
Motivation results from the interaction of both conscious and unconscious factors such as the (1) intensity of desire or need, (2) incentive or reward value of the goal, and (3) expectations of the individual and of his or her peers. These factors are the reasons one has for behaving a certain way.
Here are the few ways on how to motivate yourself :
1. Play music that gives you energy.
One of the simplest things I do when I feel low in energy or motivation is to play music that is upbeat and/or inspires me in some way. A break with a few songs or working while listening to them for a while usually works well.
2. Set your Goals, plans and achievement!
Having a goal (or even several goals) in life will help to increase your motivation to an advanced level. Without having a goal your life can become directionless and chaotic. After you have set your goals effectively you can develop a plan that helps you to reach your goals! Having a goal is not enough to succeed; taking action is the key to success!
3. Work Out Before Making Hard Decisions
Kay Koplovitz, founder, USA Network andSyfy
When I have a tough choice/decision to make and execute, I go to the gym for 30-45 minutes in order to get my heart rate up and feel more energized. This helps me when it is something I’ve got to get myself up to do.
A 2006 study published in the British Journal of Health Psychology found that a consistent exercise regimen has a significant positive impact on willpower.
4. Take a 5 minute meditation break.
This is something I have only done for the past few months. When my mind is a bit tired or perhaps even overloaded my energy and motivation goes down. So in the afternoons – or when needed – I tend to sit down with closed eyes and just focus on my breathing for 5 minutes. This clears my mind and releases inner tensions.
5. Adjust your goal size
. If a big goal in your life feels overwhelming set a smaller goal to find your motivation again. And if a smaller goal doesn’t seem inspiring try to aim higher and make it bigger goal and see how that affects your motivation.
6. Don’t let fear stop you.
A Man whose fear of rejection was so strong he’d become totally isolated. To face his fear, he decided to make it into a game: Try and get rejected at least once a day, every day.
In taking rejection’s power away, he was able to beat it, and Duesenberg says the same technique can apply to anything that intimidates you. Aim for—or at least expect—failure, and eventually it’ll happen less and less.
7 . Remind yourself of why you are working toward this
. When you’re feeling unmotivated and low in energy it is easy to lose sight of why you’re doing something. So take 2 minutes and write down your top 3 reasons for doing this work, getting an education, working out, saving that extra money or something else. Put that note where you can see it every day or keep it in your smartphone for easy access when you need a motivational boost.
8. Compare yourself to yourself and see how far you have come
Never compared yourself with other your energy or mind of thinking is different from other so always compare yourself to yourself . Instead of deflating yourself and your motivation by comparing yourself to others who are so far ahead of you.
9. Get motivation from the people in your life.
Spend less time with negative people who always look at the dark or apathetic side of things. And spend more of the time to those people who always support you or motivated to you . It will fresh your mind and give you a energy to work for your dreams and targets.
10 .Read Motivational books or Novels
Not just self-help or motivational books, but any book that has new ideas. New ideas get your mental gears turning and can build motivation. Learning new ideas puts your brain in motion, so it requires less time to speed up to your tasks.
11. Start daily Exercise
Working out doesn’t just affect your body. I find that just 15-20 minutes of lifting free weights releases inner tensions and stress and makes me feel more focused and motivated once again.
12. Reward yourself!
The next motivation method that allows you to motivate yourself effectively is by rewarding yourself for reached goals! If you are still wondering how to motivate yourself you should give this motivation method a try! Rewarding yourself with every small achievement and every success is an essential technique to advance your motivation!
