We all have days where we feel unmotivated, stuck, and just ready to give up on everything we have going on in our lives. I’m sure many of you can relate to this feeling, especially if you are dealing with some hard life circumstances at the moment. But whether you’re just having an off day or you going through some really hard times in your life right now, it’s important to Keep Moving forward no matter what the circumstances are. Here are some helpful tips and tricks to help keep moving forward in an Unmotivated World!
Life can be overwhelming, and when that happens it’s easy to feel like you’re not moving forward. But, really, we often don’t give ourselves enough credit for all we do accomplish. To move forward, we must embrace little wins—and even celebrate them! Instead of focusing on your end goal, take some time to focus on your progress. What have you learned? What actions have you taken? Has someone told you they notice a difference? All of these are small victories—keep track of them so that when times get rough, you know where you’ve been and where you’re going. You are always moving forward!
Having a set of goals and vision boards can help you stay motivated even when you feel uninspired. We live in an age of instant gratification, but that doesn’t mean you can get what you want without working for it. If you’re feeling unmotivated, visualize your desired goal as if it were already achieved and place that image somewhere where you can see it daily. To keep things moving forward, learn to celebrate incremental progress with yourself; these small wins will act as positive reinforcement for sticking with your goals—not just today, but tomorrow and beyond.
It’s important to acknowledge your accomplishments no matter how small they may seem. Recognizing positive changes and rewarding yourself helps keep you motivated. Reward yourself by doing something small, like watching your favorite show or eating at your favorite restaurant. This is especially important after trying new exercises, which can be exhausting and frustrating at first—just remember that it takes time for things to get easier. So don’t give up! You’re moving forward, that’s what matters! After all, if you weren’t moving forward, you would be going backward…
Break your goal into steps
When you’re feeling overwhelmed, you might feel as if your goal is too big to tackle. But it’s not. It can help to break big goals into smaller, manageable pieces. For example, if your ultimate goal is to start a business and make $100 million before you retire at age 40, it’s easy for that to seem impossible. Instead of fixating on that final step—$100 million—focus instead on what has to happen along the way: Decide what kind of business you want; Develop a plan; Take some action steps; Raise funding and build your team; etc. If each piece can be broken down into even smaller bits, so much the better.
Ignore others’ negativity
Even when your inner voice may be telling you that it’s okay to stop, you should ignore its advice. No matter how much progress you make, there will always be people who try to tell you otherwise. Maybe they think they know better than you do or maybe they just want what’s best for you and truly believe that won’t happen if you keep pushing forward. Either way, their negativity doesn’t matter because it means nothing to you when trying to achieve your goals. Ignore others’ negativity and remember why you started pursuing your goal in the first place; not for other people but yourself. Other people will either accept it or reject it—and either way is perfectly fine as long as you are following your path!
Accept failure as part of the process
Most successful people—in any field, not just entrepreneurs—will tell you that failure is key to success. By failing early and often, you’ll get a more realistic idea of what works and what doesn’t—and what potential investors may be looking for in your plan. Instead of trying to avoid failure at all costs, focus on learning from it so you can make better decisions going forward. Failing after months or years of planning and preparation isn’t nearly as scary as failing right away; embrace failure and your start-up journey will become much smoother!
In today’s world, it can be tough to keep on moving forward when there seems to be so much opposition and negativity. However, there are ways to keep on pushing despite the challenges. The first step is to recognize that you are not the only one feeling this way. Many people are also struggling, and together, you can start to build a community of like-minded individuals.
Secondly, find something to motivate you. Whether it is your passion, career, or hobby, find something that you are truly passionate about and focus on that. This will help you to stay motivated and focused, and it will also help you to see the good in the bad. When things are tough, remember that there is always something to learn and something to appreciate. Keeping your perspective clear will help you to keep on moving forward.
