So… this is the start of a new week and the end of January in a few days (finally!) 🙂
I know most times Monday’s are like arrrgh and you’re wondering how the weekend is over so soon… but we’ve got to get to work and make a living yeah?
The way you start your Monday actually matters, as it most often dictates how the week will be and I’m here to ensure you have a great start to this awesome week.
Today…. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on self-motivation
This can be defined as getting things done by yourself without any external influence, this is usually an effect of having a passion for something. Self-motivated persons don’t sit around waiting for someone to direct them before getting things done. If you enjoy what you’re doing, you get up each day thinking of how to do things better.
You don’t want to be that business man/woman/employee that always has an excuse for running late or for not finishing your work as at when due. You want to be that business man/woman /employee that is always on time, achieving new heights at work, kicking butts at being awesome and seems to have everything figured out.
So I’ll be sharing 3 tips on how to be self-motivated and stay self-motivated in order to achieve desired results:
- HAVE WRITTEN GOALS YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE: This keeps you on your toes as you’re working towards achieving something and you will only stop when it has been achieved. It will motivate you each morning as you look at the written goal. It will now be easier to chase that target given by your boss or chase that new deal you need to seal as you now have it in mind that achieving this goal will take you to the next height you hope on attaining
- ALWAYS SEE THE GLASS AS HALF FULL: So… I understand that most times things don’t go out as planned and because we don’t have control over other people’s action or the environment, these has to be put into consideration. Try to see the positive aspect of every situation and every setback/failure as an opportunity to learn. Try not to let anything deter you from achieving your goal.
- STAY FOCUSED: don’t lose sight of your goal. Read it every morning if you have to, or paste sticky notes all over your mirror, or record it and play it to hear before you go to bed every night… whatever works for you! But NEVER LOSE FOCUS or be distracted from your goal. The moment you do…. There’s no ginger to achieve it, you become lackadaisical about it and procrastination sets in…. and before you know it…. You’re telling a story of how you wanted to be the best optician (insert dream job) in the country.
I hope you stay self-motivated this week and be the best version of yourself at work! Enjoy the rest of your day. God bless you.
