How to push yourself to your limits by increasing your own motivation


Motivation is the pushing factor for the willingness to do things. Low motivation levels can cause us to procrastinate and leave things unfinished. Sticking in the ‘get ready’ phase is what most of us do because of having insufficient motivation. Therefore, release the hidden beast inside you and roar out loud by applying the tips for improving motivation below.

Stay positive

One of the worst things you can do is be pessimistic about things. Even if there are a billion things to worry about, there is definitely always one good thing about it. As the saying goes, every cloud has a silver lining. Therefore, you should always keep your heads up in the clouds focusing on the positives.

Smile often

To pair with the point above, you should always keep a smile on your face. As we all know, laughter is contagious. If you are moody the entire day, you will cause your peers to be moody as well. On the other hand, if you are happy the entire day, your peers will be happy as well. When everyone is happy, morale is high and everyone has motivation.

Set realistic and achievable goals

We often hear that setting goals are a good way to increase motivation and productivity. However, it is important to note that it should be achievable and logical. No point in setting a goal such as scoring 100 in a test when you used to score 20 every time. It is almost guaranteed to fail and you will get nowhere and may even make you become more unmotivated.

take short breaks

Allowing yourself to have a short mental and physical reset is crucial in maintaining high motivation. Working on your goals 24/7 does more harm than good as it can negatively affect your health. Take a breather and go to the park for a brisk walk can make a huge difference.

motivate yourself to give more than you get

Many people like to be self-centred. They expect everything to revolve around them. However, if you decide to focus more onto giving instead of getting, the satisfaction can become a true purpose of yourself. It is much more beneficial and helpful in the long term.

Be transparent and honest

Trust takes a long time to build, a second to break, and a lifetime to rebuild. Being honest and transparent will make people around you have trust in you and therefore you will have good relationships. Having a good relationship with people will set you forward in life an be much more successful.

learn to express gratitude

Taking good people for granted is one thing many people like to do. Try to learn to appreciate the good things that people do to you. It will make you less envious and happier for people when good things come to them. It increases your abundance and energy which will deepen your motivation to succeed.

Long story short

Building up motivation takes up time and effort. However, it is worth it as it will rocket you to success much earlier than other people. Reflect often on your day and pinpoint the improvements you can do. It will make a humongous difference.
