In the beginning of everything, there must be a motivating factor that inspires a person to start an endeavor. This motivating factor can come in many different forms in order to thrust your ideas and plans into its full flourishing! However, the question is, how do we continue to stay motivated and inspired to continue that which we envision to help our communities. This is the problem that sometimes good ideas face along the way! The will is present, but the inspiration and next steps are a bigger challenge.
I write this blog hoping to inspire people in such a way that will bring clear understanding and a graceful approach as we all move forward in attempt to complete what we started! I believe that our success is measured by our ability to complete things. In order to complete things, we must have a clear vision and know where we are going. Below are a few LifeHacks that I list to help us Alinka stay motivated and thrive in the process:
1. Find the good reasons:
A material reward – quite often, you will get paid for doing something you normally don’t like doing at all
Personal gain – you will learn something new or will perhaps improve yourself in a certain way
A feeling of accomplishment – at least you’ll be able to walk away feeling great about finding the motivation and courage to complete such a tedious task
A step closer to your bigger goal – even the biggest accomplishments in history have started small and relied on simple and far less pleasant tasks than you might be working on. Every task you complete brings you closer to the ultimate goal, and acknowledging this always feels good.
2. Make it Fun:
Concerning motivation, attitude is everything. Some of us find ways to make any task interesting and fun to do! Think of places to go to do work on your project that are inspiring to you. Think of people that you can get involved with that will motivate you and make it more interesting.
3. Reward Yourself:
Learn to keep track of your goals in a timely fashion. When you have a set of goals and watch them, you can then reward yourself with favorite things that you like to do or even snack on. Open out mind and see how you can enjoy what you do.
By taking heed to these tips and motivational hacks, we can all serve ourselves better while hoping to serve the communities that we are connected to. Cheers!
