As human beings, we are born with a set of emotional strings attached to our heart and brain that functions in the most natural ways. Sometimes, these strings stretch so far that our emotional levels soar up high and anything that is too much is never good for the heart.
When things don’t go as expected, when people don’t behave as expected or for no better reason, motivation can evaporate leaving you with vagueness in everything that you do. Motivation is like water, you need to refill yourself with it every now and then otherwise you become dry like the trees whose leave shed leaving it barren.
The good news is that there are a number of ways to keep yourself motivated which can help you stay enthusiastic about life.
It is important to love yourself no matter what.
If you love yourself, you will begin to enjoy what life gives you. Having expectations from oneself is good but see that you don’t push yourself too much beyond the limits. As a result, you might end up blaming yourself. Love yourself for the joy that God has taken utmost care in creating you.
People around you make a difference in your life.
When you’re around people who are positive and joyous in life, it automatically affects you. When you’re with people who are negative, you are bound to feel that way. Positive or negative, both are contagious. Make your choices carefully.
Knock off the dust from you.
Each night before you go to bed, make sure you forget all the uncomfortable things off your mind. Empty your mind so that it can be filled with positive energy the following day.
Train yourself to think only “Positive”.
Well, yes. Positive thinking doesn’t occur automatically. You have to train your mind to think only positive thoughts. There are a lot of chances for the negative thoughts to seep in but step out an affirmative yes only to positive thoughts pushing away everything else.
