5 ideas on how to stay motivated

There are many different ways to stay motivated but every person is different. Through my experiences and through experiences of those close to me, I have compiled a list of ideas to help you remain motivated.

1) Remind yourself of your goals and dreams daily. At any time during the day think about what motivates you. Rediscovering your passion each day will give you a definite push in the right direction.

2) Put little reminders all around your house. If one day you want to own a Corvette, put a picture of one on the fridge or in your bedroom. If your goal is to eat healthier, always keep a supply of fruit readily available on the counter.

3) Post motivational and inspirational quotes. Post meaningful quotes around your house. Put them in places that you will see them. I placed quotes above the desk in my office while I was studying in school. When I got discouraged or frustrated, I would read them and feel better.

4) Read articles or stories. Read books about the people you look up to. Learn about what they did and see what it takes sometimes to get what you want.

5) Do something for your future each day. Always try to take some time for yourself each day and do something good for yourself. It may be to read an article of interest to you, make a web page for your website, or research a potential investment property in the real estate section. Find some time to do something for your goals each day, no matter how much time you have, 5 minutes, 30 minutes or 2 minutes.
