Motivating Yourself To Change

Sunday, January 9th, 2011

What do you want in life and how do you envision your future?

What is your dream: a new house, a better relationship with your spouse or partner, to get out of debt, to live a healthier life style or just to lose a few pounds? Do you find yourself wasting a lot of time and not doing anything that will help you reach your goals in life?

How can you motivate yourself to change so you can get exactly what you want out of life?

Motivate Yourself - Change Your Life


Firstly, you have to WANT to change; you must choose to change. You, and only you, are in control of your destiny. Choosing to change means that you are willing to do what it takes to get what you want in life; you will give up your daily status quo routine in exchange for something better for tomorrow.

 

Secondly, you must break through barriers to change. Decide what you want and then make a commitment to yourself. Write down your commitment and make a list of the actions you will need to take. Write down what you must give up and how you will do it. Make a plan to not overwhelm yourself, because that will cause failure.

Thirdly, you must motivate yourself. Write down what motivates you; take the time to assess your life and learn about yourself. Know your likes, your dislikes, and what makes you happy and sad. Be aware of what you want in life and put it on paper. You need to know these things before you can begin to change anything.

Don’t let life decide change for you. Don’t wait so long that you have no choice. For example, you lose your job so you have to find a new one or your doctor gives you bad news about your health and now you have to lose weight or suffer terrible consequences.

There are times when you know you need to change, but you only think about it; you don’t take action. Instead of being proactive like seeking new employment before you are laid you off or taking care of yourself, you wait until it’s too late and then you are forced into action.

If you know you want something better in your life, why not take action now?

Find Your Motivation

What do you envision for yourself? What do you want in life? What would make you happy? Get a clear vision of what you want; your vision will solidify your commitment and give you a direction for action.
Without vision, how will you know where you are going? You will continue to live your life status quo and the circumstances of every day will determine your destiny for you.

Motivation to change comes from within.

When you need some guidance, ask for it. When you don’t know what your next move is get a mentor who can help you. Don’t be afraid to ask for help and advice.
