8 Steps To Be More Motivated
1. Identify Your Objectives - What are your goals? List what you want to achieve. The bigger the goal the more you get to grow.
So how does one go about deciding on a goal? A goal is a commitment. So ask yourself what is it you need or want to change? For some, this might be getting better grades, because they are not doing so well in school or because they want scholarships or to get into the college they want. For others, it might be making more friends, because they value friendship, enjoy having fun or want to learn more about people through interactions.
So begin by listing your goals, finding out what you need, and identifying the motives behind them.
2. List the possible steps to get there. - There’s a saying that to achieve a goal, you need to plan, set a due date and take action. The second step, you can accomplish by first brainstorming ideas or you can look for a model or role model and listing the steps that helped them get to their goals. The second way is actually easier because you will learn from their mistakes and be able minimize those same mistakes happening to you. Furthermore, it saves you time.
However, if a model is not available, you do have to resort to your own brain. You have to ask yourself what can I do to get to where I want? How will these steps help me get there?
