How to stay motivated

Remember Jan 1st 2017? If you are anything like me, I am sure you had lots of plans and goals to make sure 2017 is one of the best years yet. Three months in, do you still have the same desire to stay motivated and on track as you did at the start of the year? I have come up with a few ways for you to not only be motivated, but to also stay motivated throughout the year towards your dreams, goals and aspirations for the year ahead.

Motivation tip 1: Success does not require you to look out the window. Remember you only need to look in the mirror to see success is already within you. For the rest of 2017, let’s make a commitment to the person in the mirror to do whatever it takes to succeed in line with your goals and focus for the rest of the year.

Motivation tip 2: There may be moments in the year when you may feel deflated and demotivated. I am here to remind you to not be discouraged or allow any sort of deductive reasoning by looking at your current circumstances. Remember, where you are is temporary. See yourself and your circumstances the way you want it to be. Stay motivated and uplifted by have a greater vision of where you want your life to go and do not worry about what is around you.

Motivation tip 3: As you become committed to making your dreams a reality, you cannot have a victim’s mentality. Things tend to shift when you rid yourself of excuses and consistently demand excellence from yourself. This may mean you may need to surround yourself with only positive influences such as uplifting family members or friends. The information you need is always in your circle of influence so may even need to consider seeking a mentor too!

Motivation tip 4: Use what you’ve got to get what you want. No matter what happened so far this this year, please keep on trying to get closer to your dreams. Be consistent, work hard, go out there and create – don’t wait for someone to put you on. In my opinion this is perfect timing to have your own dream party!! Keep holding your goal before you and everything else will fall into place.

Motivation tip 5: Position instead of pouting. In order to stay motivated, get rid of moaning and get in position to receive the fine things you desire in life. You get out of life ,not what you want, you get what you earn. It’s your dream ladies, so be responsible for it!

Motivation tip 6: You must work on yourself continuously. The greatest relationship you will have is with yourself, therefore the aim should be self-mastery! Do not get distracted by your ‘competition’. Stay in your own lane, slay and become a master of what you do. In 2017, let’s make a commitment to not compare ourselves or our ventures to others. The incredible thing is that no one else is supposed to be like you. Motivation tip 7: Wake up and keep living life to the fullest…
