Top 7 Tips To Motivate You

Tips To Motivate Yourself

  • I think I have to do it, but I’m not motivated at all.
  • Even if I know it with my head, I can’t act because I don’t feel well.

It’s often difficult to take action because you’re not motivated.

Tips To Motivate You

I know I have to do it, but time goes by without any motivation.

In such a situation, you may be disgusted with yourself, or you may be anxious about the future, and you may be having a hard time.

It’s okay if you’re in a state of motivation and unavoidable now!

There is a way to get out of that state easily and get into a state where you can do what you want.

I will introduce how to do this from now on.

You can feel free to act if you try a little

When you’re not motivated, don’t try to do everything, but first, try a little.

Even if I try to get motivated, I don’t feel motivated and it has the opposite effect. You may be disappointed or disgusted with yourself, and you may lose motivation.

The point is to take action firsteven if only a little.

By thinking “just a little”, you can take action even if you are not motivated. “Motivation” is enhanced by acting.

Instead of trying to get motivated, let’s do just a little bit first.

For example, let’s say you’re completely unmotivated to “clean up a messy room.”

Even if I try to put everything away and make it beautiful, I can’t take a step forward because of the difficulty. After all, the room was completely untidy.

In such a case, try to clean up only one instead of cleaning up everything.

  • Throw only one piece of garbage on the floor into the trash can
  • Wash only one dish in the sink

This content is OK.

how is it? Do you feel like you can act without motivation like this?

If you feel that way, take action immediately.

Here is an example:

Suppose you decide to “wash only one of the dishes you have accumulated”.

And strangely, when I actually wash one,

“I washed one, so can I wash another one?”

I feel like that.

This is because “motivation” rises by actually acting. Motivation comes with action.

The act of washing one dish will ignite your “motivation”.

I was planning to wash only one thing, but when I became more motivated and noticed, it happened that I had finished washing everything.

Instead of trying to do everything, first, try to act because you only need a little.

That action motivates you and leads you to the results you want.

Lower the hurdle of action by not seeking perfection

When you’re not motivated, stop seeking perfection.

Trying to achieve high results for perfection puts pressure on you and discourages you from taking action.

You don’t have to get perfect results. The problem is that you can’t act because you want perfection.

It doesn’t matter if it’s less complete, so take action first.

By lowering the hurdle that it doesn’t have to be perfect, you will be motivated to try it and be able to act.

As a result of lowering the hurdles and taking action, you may fail.

It’s okay if you make a mistake.

Failure is not a bad thing.

If you seek perfection and think that you shouldn’t make mistakes, you will be afraid of making mistakes and will not be able to act.

Failure is the experience needed to succeed.

No one in the world is doing everything perfectly without failure.

Everyone makes mistakes and makes use of the experience gained from them to produce results.

First, let’s lower the hurdle and take action.

If you make a mistake, don’t be discouraged. On the contrary, thanks to failure, you can gain experience.

Let’s rejoice that you can grow by feeding on failure, not failing, and being depressed!

You can build up your growth by taking advantage of your failed experience and taking the next action .

As a result, you can grow into the perfect result you are envisioning.

Declaring to others will motivate you

If you make a decision and declare to others, “I’ll do XX!”, You will be motivated.

By declaring to others, a strong feeling of “I will definitely do it because I said it myself!” Will spring up from within me.

Then, the more I can’t help but act, the more motivated I am.

This way, you won’t be discouraged until you’ve done what you’ve decided to do.

However, be careful with this method.

At first, I wrote “decide and declare”, but this “whether or not you are prepared” is an important point.

If you declare unprepared, you will not be motivated.

On the contrary, there is a danger that you will not be able to act because the declaration will put pressure on you, or if you declare it but you will not be motivated at all with just your mouth.

Only declare to others when you have a strong determination to do “whatever you want!”

You will be amazed at how motivated you are when you declare yourself ready!

Lower goal setting and accumulate small success experiences

If you set a goal that is too high, you may not be motivated at all even though you have set a goal.

Because I can’t believe that I can achieve that high goal.

If you can’t believe yourself, you won’t be motivated.

In such a case, try changing your goal to a lower one .

Then, you will be able to believe in the achievement of the goal, saying, “I can manage to achieve this goal!”

As a result, the motivation that has been lost will come bubbling up to the Mukumuku I do.

This does not mean lowering the goal and giving up the higher goal.

A high goal is not something that can be achieved suddenly, but something that can be achieved by accumulating steady actions.

In other words, by accumulating the achievement of low goals, we can achieve the high goals beyond that.

If you’re suddenly unmotivated to reach a high goal, it’s important to lower your goal and get motivated . Even if you have a low goal, achieving it will give you a small success experience of achieving your goal.

This little success experience will further boost your motivation.

Then, continue to act in a motivated state and accumulate small success experiences one after another.

This will allow you to reach high goals that were initially unmotivated.

Do what you can do now

Sometimes you get stuck in something you can’t do right now and you’re not motivated. No matter how much you think about what you can’t do, you can’t do anything about it.

It’s motivating to stop focusing on what you can’t do and focus on what you can do now.

For example, suppose you want to go to the park with your family when it’s sunny on a holiday.

However, on that day, it was raining down rather than sunny.

At this time, if you get caught up in the fact that you can’t go to the park in the rain, you will not be motivated and you will continue to regret not being able to go to play.

You can’t change the situation where it’s raining now on your own.

If you are obsessed with what you can’t do, the holidays you’ve been trying to have fun with will end with regret that you can’t go to the park.

In such a case, instead of being obsessed with being unable to play in the park because of the rain, focus on what you can do now, such as “finding a way to play with your family even in the rain.”

Focusing on what you can do now will motivate you.

Then, ideas such as “Let’s go to the indoor playground!” Or “Let’s play at home!” Come to mind, and the family can enjoy the holidays.

Sometimes I get caught up in things that I can’t help myself, such as social conditions and people’s ways of thinking.

  • It can’t be helped because the economy is bad
  • If the president’s policy does not change, it will not work

Instead of getting caught up in this , focus on what you can do now.

By finding out what you can do now and taking action, your motivation will increase steadily. That behavior changes the situation and attracts the results you want.

Focus on what you can do now, not what you can’t do. This frees you from the unwanted situation where you want to do it but you can’t.

Then, you will be able to act with high motivation as if the unmotivated state was a lie.

Keep away demoralizing things

Is there anything close to you that deprives you of your motivation before you get motivated?

If you can think of something, keep it away from you.

It can prevent you from being discouraged.

  • TV that makes you look sloppy
  • A friend who gives you negative words
  • A drinking party that makes you complain
  • News with only dark topics

Avoid being discouraged by touching something like this.

It’s also important to implement motivational methods.

As important as this is keeping away from your demoralizing things.

If you become a habit, you can act regardless of motivation

“You can act regardless of your motivation.”

Being in this state is the ultimate way to do what you do.

The ultimate state is “habituation”. Once you get into the habit of what you are trying to do, you will be able to act completely independently of your motivation.

Because when you become a habit, it becomes commonplace to act.

For example, there aren’t many people who think that they don’t brush their teeth because they don’t feel motivated to brush their teeth in the morning, right?

I’m sure you’re brushing your teeth every morning without being aware of it.

This is because toothpaste is “habitualized”.

Brushing your teeth is the norm, so you can brush your teeth naturally regardless of your motivation.

If you can get into the habit of what you want to do, you will be able to act as normal as brushing your teeth.

So how can you make your behavior a habit?

There are three points to make it a habit.

  1. At the very least, decide on a simple content that is OK if you do only this.
  2. Resume as soon as it is interrupted.
  3. Act repeatedly every day until it becomes commonplace.

I will introduce these three points with examples of making jogging a habit.

① Decide on a simple content that is OK if you do at least this much

The biggest reason for failing to become a habit is to work too hard.

“OK! I’ll make this a habit!”

If you set a goal for habituation while you are enthusiastic about it, you will set a goal that is too high.

You’re motivated at first, so you can achieve goals that are too high. However, if you feel a little uncomfortable, or if you have an urgent need to take time, you will soon be frustrated.

Speaking of jogging, it’s like setting a goal for a person who wouldn’t normally run at all to run 10km every day.

You may be able to run 10km at first. However, as the days go by, there are days when I can’t run.

  • There are days when I’m tired and can’t run
  • I couldn’t get enough time to run
  • I didn’t feel like running 10km and took a rest

If you continue to be unable to run like this, you will stop before you become a habit .

If you set a goal that is too high, you will not be able to continue until you become a habit.

Therefore, let’s decide on simple content that is OK if you do at least this.

Speaking of jogging, it’s about “OK if you change into running wear and go outside”. All you have to do is change your clothes, so no matter how uncomfortable you are, you can do it even on busy days when you don’t have time.

By deciding on such simple content, you will be able to continue your actions every day until you become a habit.

② If interrupted, resume immediately

No matter how simple the content is, you may inadvertently forget it and become unable to act.

If you find yourself unable to act, try to resume immediately.

Because if you don’t restart immediately, you will gradually lose the desire to act. On the contrary, if you restart immediately, you can easily continue.

For example, if you inadvertently forget to jog, be sure to run the next day.

If you take a break for days, jogging itself will get out of your mind. Then I completely forget it and cannot make it a habit.

If you resume immediately, you will never forget that you want to get into the habit of jogging.

By resuming immediately, you will be able to take steps toward becoming a habit again.

③ Act repeatedly every day until it becomes common place

  1. At the very least, decide on a simple content that is OK if you do only this
  2. Resume as soon as interrupted

While practicing these two points, repeat your actions every day until you feel the actions are taken for granted.

Being able to feel it for granted makes you feel uncomfortable not acting.

At this point, it can be said that it has become a habit.

So how many days can you make it a habit?

There is a theory that it takes three weeks to become a habit.

This period is just a guide, so take action every day until you feel it is natural.

It may feel long to hear 3 weeks.

You may find it impossible to continue so much.

Still, try to decide the minimum content and practice to resume immediately even if it is interrupted.

You’ll be surprised because it’s easier than you think to get into the habit!

  1. At the very least, decide on a simple content that is OK if you do only this
  2. Resume as soon as interrupted
  3. Act repeatedly every day until it becomes common place

By practicing these three points, you can get into the habit of what you are trying to do.

If you become a habit, you will feel sick if you do not do it, and you will definitely be able to act.

At this point, “motivation” is irrelevant.

Please try to get into the habit of what you want to do.

By becoming a habit, you will not be motivated and unable to act.
