Getting yourself back up after a fall is tough. The most difficult part is perhaps trying to motivate yourself to do it. So how do you motivate yourself and move on? Here are a few ways how.
1. Set goals
The key to getting motivation is setting specific goals. You have to list down a list of goals that you would like to achieve.
2. Start small
Remember to start small first. Start with making a list of goals for each day. Little baby steps first! So once you are able to achieve your mini daily goal, you can now move on to bigger things.
3. Set a timeline
Have a timeline by which you have to adhere to. Your end aim will be for example to run in a half marathon race before the age of 30. So with that goal set firmly in your mind, you can start making mini goals from there to achieve the big goal in the end. You can start training for your half marathon run by training everyday first. Then after that, you start small with a 5km run and you move on to 10km run and finally when you are ready, you can go for a half marathon run.
4. Walk the talk
You may think that you are the best but you also need to start proving it. It is all right to talk but also need to walk the talk. So start doing it. Start taking up new stuff to prove that you can do it too. Don’t let these new experiences pass by because you THINK you can do it.
5. Be persistent.
Don’t procrastinate! Motivation and success is inseparable. You can’t have success without motivation. The most successful people in the world may not be the smartest or the most talented but they are the most motivated. So remember to be persistent in your goals. It will never do to procrastinate and put off what you have to do today till tomorrow.
Most importantly, remember that if you ever fall down again, get back up and try again. You need to treat failure as a feedback for success. So start your day tomorrow by achieving something great!
