8 Ways to Fuel Your Motivation

by Vishwajit Matkar Share via -


Motivation is a common commodity when you’re heading to the beach or shopping

for a new car. But some tasks are not enjoyable, and motivation can be challenging to


Creating motivation is a skill, and there are several techniques that can be

helpful. The ability to motivate yourself is among the most important skills you can



Try these tips when you need to boost your motivation:


1. Keep your attention on the end result rather than the process of getting

there. When you find yourself getting bogged down with a large project, remind

yourself of the goal. It’s challenging to get started when it’s necessary to put in

100 hours of work or to lose 50 lbs. If your motivation is waning, focus on how

great you’ll feel when the objective has been met.


2. Schedule regular breaks. Working for 8 hours straight might seem daunting,

but knowing that you can take a break in 60 minutes can free up your mind

enough to focus intently for an hour. Approach your work 60 minutes at time

and you’ll be done before you know it.


3. Stand up and move around. Short period of intense exercise can improve

creativity, sharpen the mind, and decrease stress. Find an activity appropriate for

your environment.


4. Give yourself rewards as milestones are reached. Think of a few

self-indulgences that you consider motivating. Break your work into reasonable

chunks and give yourself a small reward as the milestones are met.

These rewards can be very small. A cup of coffee or a short break might be

enough to get through a rough patch.


5. Do whatever it takes to get started. It’s surprising how motivation can seemingly

appear from nowhere if you can just take the first step. Waiting for inspiration to

get started is a mistake. You’re likely to notice that the work wasn’t nearly as

disagreeable as you thought. You’ll probably be impressed with your progress

and begin to feel motivated.Whether it’s writing one sentence, making one phone call, or doing one pushup, do whatever it takes to get the ball rolling.


6. Find inspiration through a song or video. YouTube is loaded with inspirational

movie clips and presentations. Maybe there is a particular song that motivates

you. A couple of minutes spent on this sort of activity can be well worth the

time. Consider listening to a favorite song or watching a video on your break

time. Avoid getting distracted and wasting hours. Five minutes is enough!



7. Use a timer. A timer is a very effective way to focus the mind and get things

done. Knowing that the seconds are ticking away is very motivating.

Having a timer also eliminates the questions of deciding how much to do

or when to stop and take a break. You stop when the timer stops.


8. Make a list of the benefits you’ll receive upon completion. Will you finally

have the money to pay all of your bills and take a trip? Will you be proud to

show off your body at the beach? Can you realize your dream of gaining

acceptance into graduate school?


Keep the list handy and review it whenever your motivation is lacking.

Strive to further develop your ability to motivate yourself.


Self-motivation is a powerful tool for creating a successful life. Remember that the most challenging task can be to take the first step. Get started and you’ll find that your motivation begins to grow!
