How to Keep Motivated to Reach your Potential

Making the choice to unlock your potential is a big commitment. It will be worth the effort, but it’s smart to set up built-in motivation before you need it. There may be setbacks and times when you question if the goal is really worth the time and energy it requires to reach it. When you hit a slump, or come up against self-doubt, here are some ways to get back your motivation to continue taking the action steps required to unlock the potential inside you. 

 

Look back at what you’ve already accomplished

Occasionally, you may feel like you are working hard, but getting nowhere. This can dampen your enthusiasm for sure. But you’ve done more than what you realize! Go back through your planner or goal journal and refresh your memory of all the small steps you’ve taken that add up to getting you much closer to reaching the goals you’ve set for yourself.

 

Hang around with like-minded people
When you first make the decision to go for your goal in a big way, you should look for support to help you achieve it. Having the chance to hang out with others who have the same goal is an important way to learn new things and get support. It’s easy now to find people with the same ambitions – look online in forums or look at options in your local area. Many times, you can find a group who meets regularly to be there for you when you need a boost.

 

Use a sounding board

Talking out where you are stuck can be a huge help! Choose one of the people in your support group or even a sympathetic friend or relative to use as a sounding board. Even if they haven’t been in your exact situation before, they will have experienced something in their lives similar enough that they will be able to empathize. They don’t necessarily need to give you advice; they just need to listen. Many times, just having someone to talk a problem out with can help you easily find the solution.

 

Break tasks down into smaller pieces

Taking on big goals can be frightening. If you are feeling like you can’t deal with a particular action you need to take to move on, try breaking it down into several pieces. That will make it feel more manageable, and you will be able to see success more quickly as you check smaller tasks off your list.
