15 Ways To Stay Self Motivated

We all know the score: write a list of resolutions at the beginning of the year, fill in the planners/training logs with good intentions and make a commitment that this is The Year your life is going to change.

In this story, I’m going to share with you 15 ways that you can stay motivated throughout the year. Let’s get started!

Understand What Drives You

The drive to achieve can come from different things for different people. Understanding what motivates you is a key step in finding your personal motivation.

Set Realistic Goals

Goal setting needs to be realistic and achievable, building on your current set of skills. Setting unrealistic personal goals is a surefire way to lose motivation quickly.

Extrinsic motivation, (external motivation), is about doing something in order to achieve an external goal, such as getting external rewards or avoiding punishment.

Don’t Rely On Extrinsic Motivation

Seek Out Intrinsic Motivation

When you’re intrinsically self-motivated, you are driven by personal satisfaction – the sense of doing something because you want to do it.

When it comes to personal motivation, your why is key. You need to be emotionally connected to your goal in order to stay the course when things get tough.
