I have zero motivation to do anything,

Zero motivation to Excercise,

Zero Motivation to take action,

Zero Motivation to change Habits

and zero Motivation for ……..(many things in Life)

Do you want to take your motivation meter to highest level

Do you know Success doesn’t just find you,

You have to go out and get it.

If you want to achieve greatness, you need to stop asking for permission.

It is why motivation is essential in life because it pushes you to stops asking questions and aligns you to work towards your targets.

 

Without motivation, you can’t achieve anything. There are no goalposts to aim for and no purpose to strive forward.

 

Motivation is an important life skill.

The reason it’s essential is that every person on this earth is unique and has a purpose.

To achieve your purpose well, you have to be motivated to work towards your goals, helping your dreams become a reality. 

So MOTIVATION is all about finding out your Goal and following it ..

When you’re motivated, you have a desire to change your life.

Motivation pushes you towards your goal because of a willingness to change. 

Motivation helps you set goals in life and it acts as fuel to achieve them.

The next important ingredient for Motivation is

Find out your True motivation or sense of Purpose :

Whatever you Strongly believe determines your sense of purpose and your strong sense of purpose will help you to tap your source of motivation.

You have to find what brings deep satisfaction in your life and work.

Make a list of the top 5 things which bring deep satisfaction in your life and create goals around that.

This will take your motivation meter to the highest level.

 

How Motivations Help you in Life ?

MOTIVATION PUSHES THROUGH SETBACKS

Every road to success will have a setback.

There is no such thing as a dream route to reach your dreams.

Setbacks will have you doubt whether your goal is worth the effort, but motivation steps in and gives you the strength and courage to try again.

Motivation boosts productivity :

The other benefit of motivation is that it boosts your productivity. Motivation doesn’t just make you work harder, but faster as well. 

And because you are motivated, you can get into the “flow state” easier.

Motivation builds your habits :

For those who say that motivation is not as crucial as habits, think again. It would be best if you had the motivation to build the practices, especially in the beginning.

When an action becomes a habit, we still require some motivation to execute the routine, just that the energy required will be much lower.

However, in the beginning, when you first wanted to develop the habit, it requires much motivation.

Motivation gets you to your goals and dreams.

We all need some form of motivation to act on our goals and the things that we want to achieve in life.

Without motivation, we aren’t going to accomplish much. It is the motivation that boosts our drive and puts us into making the decision and taking the necessary action.

So it’s essential to stay motivated. I will now discuss how you can stay motivated 24X7.

Get out of bed 

The simple act of getting up is an excellent first victory of the day.

Leave a few sticky notes with positive affirmations where you can see them, such as: “Yes, you can do it,” “Every long journey starts with one step,” or “Never give up!”

Your brain digests whatever thoughts you create, so feed it positive ones.

Exercise

Exercise helps your body release endorphins, the feel-good hormones.

Exercising for at least 35 minutes a day will help you boost your mind five days a week. 

One goal at a time.

You cannot maintain energy and focus (the two most important things in accomplishing a goal) if you try to do two or more destinations at once.

It’s just not possible.

You have to choose one goal, for now, and focus on it entirely.

Still, I speak from experience. You can always do your other goals when you’ve accomplished your One goal.

How to find your motivation

Find inspiration in books, video, audios 

Inspiration, for me, comes from others who have achieved what I want to achieve or who are currently doing it.

I read other blogs, books, magazines.

Stick with it. 

Whatever you do, don’t give up.

 

Even if you aren’t feeling any motivation today, or this week, don’t give up. Again, that motivation will come back.

Think of your goal as a long journey, and your slump is just a little bump in the road. You can’t give up with every bit of bump.

Stay with it for the long term, ride out the ebbs, and surf on the flows, and you’ll get there.

Start small

If you are having a hard time getting started, it may be because you’re thinking too big.

For example, if you want to exercise, you may be thinking that you have to do these intense workouts five days a week. 

No — instead, do small, tiny baby steps. 

Just do 2 minutes of exercise. I know, that sounds wimpy. But it works.

Commit to 2 minutes of exercise for one week. You may want to do more but stick to 2 minutes.

It’s effortless; you can’t fail. Do it simultaneously, every day: just some crunches, two pushups, and some jogging in place.

Once you’ve done 2 minutes a day for a week, increase it to 5, and stick with that for a week. In a month, you’ll be doing 15-20.

Want to wake up early? Don’t think about waking at 5 a.m.

Instead, think about waking 10 minutes earlier for a week. That’s all. Once you’ve done that, wake 10 minutes earlier than that. Baby steps.

Motivation hates negative thoughts

Replace them with positive ones. Along those lines, it’s important to start monitoring your thoughts.

 

Recognize negative self-talk, which is really what’s causing your slump. Just spend a few days becoming aware of every negative review.

After a few days, try squashing those negative thoughts like a bug and replacing them with a positive idea.

Squash, “This is too hard!” and replace it with, “I can do this! If that wimp “generic Name” can do it, so can I!” It sounds corny, but it works. Really.
