Motivation Doesn’t Last Unless You Practice It Daily

“Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.” — Wayne Dyer

  1. Practicing Daily Motivation: How To Successfully Do It?
  2. What Happens If You Don’t?

Motivation.

The one thing you can’t do without when you want to achieve something significant in life.

It’s in the way you think, or the way you feel about something. It’s how much you try, and how far you go every single day.

Motivation is the foundation for success.

That is, of course, if you practice it regularly!

You know how the saying goes, “Rome was not built in a day”. So don’t expect the “impossible”, without trying your best every single day.

Because, for everything that you do in life, you have to give your extra effort. Especially if the end goal is worth the trouble.

You can’t become successful overnight.

You can’t learn a new skill in a day, it takes patience and many attempts.

You can’t solve the problem immediately. You first need to rethink, recalculate, retry.

Everything you do in life requires a particular amount of your time.

So why should your motivation be any different?

I am not here to teach you things that you already know.

But I am here to remind you of the things that you might have forgotten along the way.

For example, to remind you that with some things in life you will try more and you will give more of yourself. And with others, you won’t. That’s how you recognize the real priorities.

I am here to remind you that in order to practice motivation daily, you first need to choose a goal in your life that will truly make you happy. That’s how you grow.

Don’t be surprised if you don’t feel motivated all the time, especially when you are doing something for all the wrong reasons.

Are you motivated right now?

What’s the source of your motivation?

How about the end goal? Is it rewarding enough?

Would you be doing something else instead?

How will you see your plan through?

Answer these questions to gain a perspective on your real priorities.

Your answers, if honest, should tell you whether you are truly putting effort into the things that you want to be doing with your life, or wasting time on things that don’t really make you happy.

Once you gain that perspective, make sure to practice the following things:

1. Set up a meaningful goal. You must really want it.

2. Track your progress.

3. Set up challenges and rewards after their completion.

4. Celebrate even the smallest wins.

5. Don’t allow failures to keep you down for a long time.

6. When you reach the goal, celebrate, take a break, and do this all over again!

These are just some friendly tips that could help you, and it doesn’t hurt to try them out.

A lot of people will find a specific thing, big or small, that causes them satisfaction, establish it as their reward, and become motivated enough so that they can reach it.

For example, your reward can be a trip to an unknown destination, after a good month of work. Or a bubble bath, after a productive day.

Or think of something entirely else, whatever works for you. Something that you know would keep your motivation up, and it will keep you going straight to your goals.

As long as you practice motivation every day, or at least try hard enough not to strive away from your goal, you’ll be just fine. And most importantly, you’ll grow!

What Happens If You Don’t?

You will have bad days.

You will wake up in the morning, and there will be no sight of your usual motivation.

You can’t fully control this, but you can try to minimize the negative effects.

Remember, handling positive or negative emotions is equally challenging.

And you most certainly can’t handle staying positive and motivated all the time if you don’t practice it daily. There isn’t a person in this world that is motivated all the time, or happy all the time, or sad or angry.

Our life is a crazy mix of feelings and emotions, and it’s hard to keep one constant. Especially motivation.

Motivation is tricky. It doesn’t necessarily happen when you need it the most.

There will be days when your motivation lets you down.

You will be struggling with even the simplest tasks.

This is, however, normal. It happens to the best of people.

The key is not to let negative feelings drag you down even deeper.

The key is to keep going. Every day, all the time.

So what happens when you don’t practice motivation daily?

Well, you get lost.

When you are going towards your goal, you have to walk the entire way. Motivation is what keeps you on the right path.

When you abandon it, or it abandons you, you get lost.

The way you deal with this situation, and the quicker you find your way back on that path, the easier it will be for you to get the end goal.

So don’t let a bad day discourage you.

Your motivation is still within you, you just have to look extra hard for it and find it!

Motivation is what gets you started, and it’s also the thing that keeps you going.

That and, of course, discipline, habit, determination…

All of these are crucial to getting to your end goal, but on their own, they are not enough to keep you going.

There are tons of ingredients in the recipe for success.

Make sure you get enough from each one and combine them all carefully.
