Improving Self-motivation

At one time or another we all have felt frustrated with ourselves. Everyone has dreams they would like to come true, but sometimes it seems like the problem is more inside of us, in motivating our self to follow through with exercise, saving money, breaking a habit, becoming happier or whatever we are trying to do.

One size does not fit all when it comes to motivation. Each of us is motivated in a way unique to us. Success happens often when we know ourselves well enough that we know what to do to keep ourselves on track with our motivation and what potential hazards to avoid.
Improving our success and getting un-stuck can happen quickly if we observe our daily habits, thoughts, and moods, and how they relate to our success. To begin now choose three things to observe about yourself in relation to your achieving your goals. What we eat, whether we talk to people who are positive or negative, changes in scenery, and being in a class, job, or group that encourages a certain kind of behavior are some common things that affect our motivation.

The way we talk to ourselves also greatly affects our accomplishment of anything, and replacing just one common negative thought with a more positive one can make a huge difference. We might start saying, "I can!" every time we catch ourselves thinking "I can't." Or we might try to focus on what is fun about exercise or work, for instance, instead of always focusing on what we don't like about it.

After we have determined even one thing that improves our motivation, we can begin supporting ourselves better. The same thing goes for learning what kinds of things precede our slacking off on our goals. Each time we go off our diet, feel more depressed, get snappish with friends, or whatever behavior we wish to change, we can reflect back at what happened before our behavior. Writing these things down will soon reveal to us a pattern we may wish to avoid.
