We’ve all seen it happen, January comes and you are meticulous about acquiring new habits and pursue them with an optimistic outlook – the thought of a fresh start. However, by the time March break has arrived, you’re tired, jaded and back in the same routine!
As Spring is in the air, it’s important to not lose sight of your goals for the year. Whether it’s a Real Estate goal, a professional goal or even a personal goal. Take a look at our 10 tips to stay Motivated for the rest of the year.
Identify your big why
When the going gets tough, what is the one thing that will help you push through and visualise yourself at the end of the obstacle course? Maybe you’re sitting on the deck of that new cottage this summer?
Whether it’s a fitness, career, real estate or financial goal, buddy up with someone with a similar goal, or someone who inspires you to move forward. If your means allow, coaching may be a great option. Stick together so that you can lift each other up when you’re struggling and celebrate your successes together.
Set SMART goals
That’s specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time based. Having clear and direct goals in every area of your life will breathe fresh motivation into your journey.
Stay creative and inspire
Get motivated by inspiring others! Become a regular on online forums, or start a social media page focused on the goal that’s nearest and dearest to your heart, or even on mindset as a whole.
Put progress on paper
Go old school with a note-book tracking your progress, or use an app to see how far you’ve come and stay inspired to keep going.
Plan it out
Create a detailed plan for the aspects of your life you are trying to elevate. If it is a routine, make three versions, to account for various levels of busyness and energy.
Instead of going full speed ahead and burning out, start small and work your way up to the next big milestone.
Train your mind in the art of resilience, and you’ll have an easier time sticking to your goals.
Embrace the failure
You’re bound to hit a roadblock or two along the way. The difference between giving up and moving forward is whether you let that derail your plans or shake it off.
Shift your perception
Identify your limiting beliefs, or opinions that you might believe to be absolute truths, and challenge yourself to acknowledge alternative truths you may be ignoring.
