Monday Motivation…Do you Need a little extra push💪🏾

Happy Monday Friends…here we are again another Monday right 🤷🏽‍♀️ you have said all weekend that this Monday will be the Monday you get started on goals!!!

How is that going right now? Or have you completely run out of steam already…good grief Monday isn’t over yet😆

Do you find it hard to stay motivated about the goals you have set?

Do you feel like giving up even before you get started?

Guess what….I have been there too!

I know all too well how hard it is to stay motivated especially if you suffer from mental health issues like I do! And guess what that’s ok…

Motivation is literally the desire we have to do things. It is the difference between waking up before dawn to get started on a particular project and lazing around the house all day watching TV. It’s the crucial element in setting and attaining goals. Research shows you can influence your own levels of motivation, but far too often, we fail to do so. Staying motivated can be a real struggle. When trying to maintain motivation, our drive is constantly assaulted by negative thoughts and anxieties about the future.

Here are a some tips to help you get motivated and achieve those goals:

1️⃣ Put your goals in writing—Sometimes, the act of writing down what you are going to do is a strong motivator. Writing down goals helps you make them more specific and less vague. When you write them, use action verbs.

2️⃣ Give all your goals measurable outcomes—By doing so, it helps you know when you’ve achieved each goal you set.

3️⃣ Make a list of obstacles—Always think of everything that might stand in your way and decide what you can do about each obstacle. If you design a plan, you’ll reduce the influence of each obstacle and increase the chances that you will be successful.

4️⃣ Don’t procrastinate—Procrastination is a form of self-regulatory failure.
The old saying, “Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today” is one you should live by. If you do this too often, your “tomorrow” may never come, and you’ll never reach your goal. 🤷🏽‍♀️

5️⃣ Keep a positive attitude—There is nothing more powerful for self-motivation than the right attitude. You can’t choose or control your circumstance, but can choose your attitude towards your circumstances. 💪🏾

6️⃣ Avoid negativity—If you’re can’t approach something with a positive attitude, at least approach it with an open mind. Negativity will only achieve negative results.

The way you feel about yourself is important. Being motivated and completing goals will help you feel fantastic about yourself. As a motivated self-starter your self-esteem will soar. You will accomplish much more, have greater success and live a full life.

Hope these tips help you to jumpstart your Monday and teach you how to stay motivated about your goals…

Wishing you all an amazing goal getting week,
