We all get lost sometimes, and it is just hard to stay motivated.
So, here are 10 best tips for achieving anything you want in life.

1 | focus on commitment, not motivation

How committed are you to your goal? Think about it.
You just have to realise how important is it for you, and what you are willing to sacrifice in order to achieve it. If you find yourself fully committed, motivation will follow.

2 | seek knowledge, not results

Focus on the excitement of discovery, improving, exploring and experimenting, this way you will always be fired up.
If you focus only on results, your motivation will be immediately killed.

So the key is to focus on the journey, not the destination.
Keep in your mind the new things you are learning along the way and how you can improve them.

3 | make the journey fun

This is probably the most important point out of ten.
The minute you make it serious, there’s a big chance it will start carrying a heavy emotional weight and you will lose your main goal.
Remember, it's a great game!

4 | get rid of negative thoughts

Thoughts influence the way you feel, the way you act, and also the way you view your work.

You have a lot of thoughts in your head, and you always have a choice of which ones to focus on:

  • the ones that will make you emotionally stuck, as fears and doubts
  • or the ones that will move you forward, as excitement, experimenting, trying new things, stepping out of your comfort zone.

5 | use your imagination

Next step is to use your imagination. When things go well, you are full of positive energy, and when you are experiencing difficulties, you need to be even more energetic.
You can always find something new to learn, so think and say positive things only!

6 | stop being nice to yourself

The only thing that brings results is action, but sometimes your actions fail to bring the results you want. So you prefer to be nice to yourself and not put yourself in a difficult situation, but that could only make you lazier.

Get out there, challenge yourself, do something that you want to do even if you are afraid.

7 | get rid of distractions

Meaningless things and distractions will always be in your way, especially those easy, usual things you would rather do instead of focusing on new challenging and meaningful projects.

Learn to focus on what is the most important, writing a list of time-wasters could help you!

8 | don’t rely on others

You should never expect others to do it for you, they are all busy with their own needs.
No one will achieve your goals for you, this time you are on your own.

9 | plan

Plan, plan, plan, you do not need anything else.
Fill out your weekly calendar, review it each day, write what you learned and revise what you could improve.

10 | protect yourself from burnout

It’s easy to burn out when you are very motivated, for this reason you have to take time to rest. Your body and mind need it.
Do diverse tasks, keep switching between something creative and logical, something physical and still, working alone and with a team. Meditate, or just take deep breaths, close your eyes, or focus on one thing for five minutes.

At the end, what makes you really motivated is the curiosity.
So, be curious, and this will lead you to your goals and success.
