You Learn More In Failure Than You Ever Do In Success ~ Jay Z ~
Motivation can be hard to come by when you’re not seeing the results you desire. The ability to intrinsically motivate yourself in spite of a lack of motivation is a valuable skill.
Motivation is frequently in short supply, so learning how to manage yourself through this situation is important if you want to succeed.
Doing nothing when you are lacking motivation is a bad habit that can have significant negative consequences. There is a better way of navigating a lack of motivation.
Use these tips to persist even when you’re not seeing results:
1. Practice Patience.
No one wants to be told to be patient. We’ve been hearing those words since before we could even understand them. However, it is still good advice.
Sometimes it take longer than it should, and sometimes the results shows up suddenly.
2. Keep The Final Result Fresh in Your Mind.
When your motivation is waning, remember how you will feel when you are finally successful.
Visualise being successful. Notice how good it feels when you first achieve that goal.
3. Set A Schedule And Stick To It.
When your motivation flags, it is common to start feeling lazy. One way to combat this is to create a daily plan for yourself and stick to it. The less motivated you are, the more structure you need.
Giving up is the most perfect way to ensure that you will not be successful. It’s difficult to fail in the long term if you continue trying. Eventually, you will accomplish your objective. However, it is imperative that you don’t quit.
4. Use Your Failures To Gain Mastery.
Mistakes and failures happen a lot more than we like, but they’re part of the process. Getting the most out of these negative results makes a huge difference.
If you can adopt the belief that failures are common and can ultimately help you to master your craft, it is easier to stay motivated. Even if you’re failing, things are happening in your favour.
5. Be Grateful.
Remember that everything is alright. Practicing gratitude each day is a great reminder that your life isn’t as bad as you thought. You will hang in there longer and keep trying if you feel grateful.
6. Take a Break.
Take a short break as it can be tough to get back on track after a long break. Long breaks can sometimes turn into permanent breaks.
Maybe it is time to take a weekend and get out of town. Maybe you just need to take a night off and have a beer with your friends.
7. Remember Past Successes.
Your past successes can rekindle your enthusiasm. Reminding yourself that you’ve been successful in the past can renew your hope that you’ll also be successful now. It is a great way to improve your mood at the same time.
Motivation is nice while it lasts, but if you’re going to be super successful, you must learn to keep working even without motivation.
You can also create motivation. Remember how great it is going to be when you succeed in achieving your goal. Take breaks as you need them.
Remember to be patient and appreciate that good things can take time to happen!
