How to Motivate Yourself


In this article I will be talking about how to motivate yourself. First you always remember why you want to motivate yourself to do something. For example, I am working on writing more. One of the things I tell myself is that writing is good for me, so I want to do it more. Another way to motivate yourself is to give yourself a reward, aka, celebrate small wins; when you do whatever you are trying to do. But it depends on what your goal is. If your goal is to just get something done, then the reward strategy works quite well. However, if your goal is to enjoy doing something, then the reward strategy might not work as well when you are doing it just for the reward. So you have to be careful about how you use reward to motivate yourself.


Next, you want to make it easy for you to do what you need to do. For example, if your goal is to run more, then you should set out your running shoes so it is easy to put them on and go running. This is important because you want to make it as easy as possible to start to try and work on your goal. Being able to motivate yourself is very important because sometimes we have to do things that we don’t like to do. When that happens we need to know how to motivate ourselves to start doing it and keep on doing it. One tip to motivate you to finish something is to set deadlines. If you have a deadline for whatever you are doing, then you will be less likely to procrastinate. Thank you for reading my article about how to motivate yourself. Now that you have some good ways to motivate yourself, I hope you will incorporate it into your own lives.
