7 rules for more motivation

An important aspect in order to master many things better is motivation. However, it is precisely this that is often missing. Targets that are not reached, pressure from the boss, small annoyances or great frustration – all together a vicious circle that can severely shake motivation. The following principles of motivation are easy to implement because they follow very simple ways of thinking and are still very effective – but only if you put them into practice every day. Because: No hard work, no gain!

1. Set goals that fascinate you!

Setting goals in life is very logical for most people. But that alone is not enough. Often the believed goals are actually just wishes. Clear goals need to be well defined, meaning you need to work on them, and most importantly, they need to be worth working hard towards them every day.

When planning your goals, it is important to know whether you are more motivated by the achievement of the goal or by the journey to the goal. The main thing is that it is a goal that fascinates and excites you. So a goal that draws you. Also remember that goals are always very personal things that mean a lot to you.

2. Think positive!

Under no circumstances should you go through the world with rose-colored  glasses  and ignore everything that is bad – on the contrary – it is important that you deal with problems and see them as an opportunity to do something better. The small successes are particularly important. You often cannot change a problematic situation that you may find yourself in overnight, but you can change your attitude and thus – over time – also improve the situation! A little tip: Write down all the problems on a list.

The next step is the creative phase: think about what advice you would give your best friend in such a situation and then write down your solution. After the problem is solved, check it off, because that’s how you see the achievements. The more ticks you have on your list, the better you will feel.

3. Become aware of your strengths!

Usually only weaknesses or mistakes of a person are given special attention. The strengths that everyone also possesses are taken for granted. However, if you consciously point them out, they cause a tremendous boost in motivation. I can do it!

This will make your attitude and thinking more positive – your whole approach may change as a result. All of this together releases outstanding motivational forces, which are the actual cornerstones for all other tips.

4. Formulate “faith” principles!

This does not mean any sentences that you “babble along” every day, i.e. no great sayings that you have overheard somewhere, but which you personally do not stand behind, but firm principles that you believe in yourself.

Think about 5 such beliefs and write them down. Read them daily, right at the beginning of your work. You will feel how motivated you start your working day.

5. Reward yourself and make friends!

Many people perform at their best every day without even thinking about rewarding themselves. Reward, however, promotes performance – not only for others, but also for yourself! If you regularly reward yourself for the many, often small, positive events of each day, then the negative ones won’t weigh so heavily. Even if you have a goal in mind, you should plan enough free time and space.

Find a balance, because nothing is worse than being bitten. Then mostly nothing works anymore. In any case, friends are part of it, because with them relationship levels are created.

6. Face new challenges!

So we are back at the starting point. Goals always mean a challenge, otherwise they are not worthwhile goals. Mastered challenges strengthen belief in yourself. That makes you independent and free.

You realize that you alone are responsible for your life and can be more relaxed.

7. End your day on a positive note!

At the end of each working day, write down three things in your diary that you found positive. Don’t just think about it: write it down! Your motivation increases every day, every week, every month.

An old adage advises ending each day with a smile. If you interpret this saying generously, you might even start the next day with a smile. Is that nothing?
