How to stay motivated for success.


They say ‘No pain No gain’. Though there is a negative connotation in this quote, pain may sometimes be the reason why people change. Pain could be the motivation for success, the motivation to do better and not to falter again.

Remember the days when getting bad grades in school make us realize that we need to study. Debts remind us of our inability to manage our finances efficiently and the ability to look for a source of income. Humiliation sometimes gives us the ‘push’ to do something right and fight for ourselves to prevent further embarrassment. The motivation to succeed derived from  a bitter experience, a friend’s tragic story, a great movie, or an inspiring book,  will help us get up to improve ourselves.

With the countless negativity the world brings today, how can we keep motivated? Here are some points to help you in stay motivated in your quest for self improvement:

Have a dream and achieve your dream. Avoid negative people, things and places that will hold you back and keep you from achieving your dreams. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Believe in yourself, and in what you can do.

Hold on to your dreams and never give up. Sometimes dream may dangle or wobble for a moment, but your dream will pull you through. Keep motivated as a motivated person sees obstacle as a temporal hiccups that would soon clear.

Consider things on every angle and aspect. Motivation comes from determination. To be able to understand life, you should feel the sun from both sides. Make things happen. Don’t wait for things to happen, be proactive not reactive. Most importantly, do not procrastinate.

Always be prepared. Good planning and preparation help you uncover any flaws and make immediate remedy

Don’t give up and don’t give in. Thomas Edison failed not once but more than thrice before he came up with his invention of the incandescent light bulb. Motivation is your steering wheel of success.

Enjoy your work. Work as if you don’t need money. Dance as if nobody’s watching. Love as if you never cried. Learn as if you’ll live forever. We are always more motivated when we are happy.

Give more than what is enough; give 101% in our effort. Such motivation not only propels you to success, you will also gain respect from people around you and it makes you feel good about yourself.

The key to success is to be you. And the key to failure is to try to please everyone. Learn to love yourself.

Lastly, treasure your family and friends; they are the support, the pillars that could help you get motivated, stay motivated and be motivated.
