Some might say I am the most motivated person they have ever met cause I always leave people with the impression that it go all in in every case. But I will share a secret with you:
I often struggle to motivate myself..
BUT I got a couple of tricks I use to get back on track when I feel like the world is going against me and I need to work harder.
1: What motivates you?
Ask yourself that question and write down the answer cause this will be the ONE answer to all your problems. My boss asked me this my first day, and I said: I hate losing so I always try to be the best. I am motivated my numbers, not money, so for me at work it was always being the best saleswoman, or winning competitions. If money motivates you, then GREAT! Make a plan to how you of how much you would like to earn within a week/month/year, and then look at how you can get there.
2: Who do you wanna be?
Everytime any competition was over or I reached a goal, I just felt unbelievably unmotivated. And I always striv to set new goals so I could work towards them, but meanwhile I always had a little “dip” in my results. But during a leadermeeting one of the CEO´s said: “Find out who you wanna be, and be that person everyday in everything you do”. I believe this is so true. If you wanna be the person who always wake up at 6 am every morning to work out, then be that person. Or if you see yourself as the person who is ALWAYS positiv, then ALWAYS be that person. Make that decision today, and stick with it.
3: Plan it & set goals:
Who are you and where do you wanna go in life. Do you wanna be the owner of a company then fantastic! Make a 5/10/20 years ahead plan, and then set deadlines for certain things and stages you need to reach in order to reach your main goal. I did this when I decided to study at USC. I wrote down USC as my goal within two years, and then put:
6 months: improve grades
1 year: volunteer/SAT
2 years: apply/visa/essay
That way I kept track of what I needed to do but also it made me see that I was getting closer every day.
