How do you stay motivated?

No Problem

Everyone is different, but I have found that having goals helps keep me motivated.  The goals have to be realistic, however.  Otherwise I find myself frustrated rather than motivated.  What works for you?

Usually I underestimate myself in every situation, because I'm mistaking being pessimistic for being realistic; this is my personality. I keep myself motivated just by believing in myself.

Fear can be a fantastic motivator!  Not the healthiest of type but definitely a powerful one.  Fear of missing deadlines, of ridicule... of failure.  Even the motivator of proving people wrong is born from the fear of them being right.

I don't think that we can stay motivated all the time, and that's definitely normal. During your journey you may go through phases where you lose your motivation, you try to get it back , do stuff that motivates you the best, but, it seems  like motivation is not there anymore. I think that, if the goal is great, then even if you are not motivated you will keep going, because there is something making you move forward, something  beyond motivation and it's called the power of will

Setting realistic goals can definitely help for me. Another thing that helps personally is a bit of competition. I like to see what others are doing and challenge myself to keep up or even do better. It may sound a bit petty, but it really does help!

Having goals in place is some form of motivation, but I think I set goals because I've been motivated by other factors. I need to set goals so that I will have boundaries, give myself a timeline and to measure my performance. However, I have noticed that when I do not have goals in place, I tend to drift of course a lot easier than I do when goals have been set.

We are motivated when we evolved in our personal evolution, we analyzed the situation from the point of view of an observer. Our goals are directed to the well-established goal. Everything is up to our will, because every failure is a step forward and a lesson to learn.

This is something I really struggle with, and find that I have to sort of over-compensate by writing things down CONSTANTLY. I try to place sticky notes everywhere that I will see them consistently. Whenever I see those sticky notes, I know that I placed it there for a reason, and there's a feeling of not wanting to disappoint myself by not listening to myself
