Three Easy Ways To Stay Motivated

Having a hard time staying motivated? I’m going to share three easy ways I stay motivated.

1. Affirmations

I use affirmations as gentle reminders of where to keep my focus! Losing focus is a motivation killer. I have my affirmations written on post it notes that I’ve hung on the wall. I try to read the aloud everyday. Even if I don’t read them aloud, I can see them.

Tip: Post them where you can see them. A wall. A mirror. In the car. You make the rules.

2. Plans not Problems

Problems don’t exist in my world. Yes, I have problems of course, but I choose to look at them in a different lights. I make plans for problems.

Budgeting? Create a plan and make that the focus. I love having a plan, checking things off a list. It makes me feel accomplished and motivates me to work on the next thing.

Parenting? Having a problem getting the kids to bed on time? Getting homework done? Getting them to do chores? (My real life y’all). Make a plan. We actually have a whiteboard where I write chores. Note to self: be more consistent.

Remember, plans not problems! Your results will be your motivation.

3. Podcasts

I listen to podcasts daily. I choose motivational and funny podcast. I listen to them while driving to work, while at work, and on the way home from work. It’s extremely motivating and a great way to start the day!

My favorites at the moment:

• The Potter’s Touch on Lightsource.com

• Ted Talks Daily

• Oprah’s Super Soul Conversations

• Jesus and Jollof

Until next time…💛
