It’s easy to charge your phone these days because there are places to charge it everywhere. In some places you don’t even need to bring your charger with you. Even cars can easily be plugged into any outlet around your house!
What about when your mental battery is running low? Where’s the charging station for that? If you have any desire, goal, or dream that takes a significant amount of time to achieve, then you may have experienced a phase in life where you lost some or all of your motivation. This is perfectly normal. The good news is there are ways to recharge your battery.
There are three ways to get you motivated about your goal(s) again:
1. Visualization: See It!
This technique allows you to get excited about your goal again. It reminds you of why you wanted to achieve the goal in the first place. Just find a time throughout the day when it’s quiet and you’re alone. You can even have some calming music in the background. It might be helpful to take a few deep breaths to help clear your mind. Once you feel calm, begin to think about your goal. See yourself achieving that goal. It’s important to be as detailed as possible. What are doing? What are you wearing? Who are you with? How are you feeling? The more detailed the better!
2. Conversations : Talk about It!
Talk about your goals to your parents, your friends, your classmates, your teachers, your coaches, and even people you don’t know that well! This will definitely recharge your battery. The more conversations you have about your goal, the more excited you’ll be. Anytime you talk about your goals, desires, or dreams the more real they become. So, if you find yourself losing motivation, just start talking about it to anyone who will listen. Who knows, one of them may be able to help you achieve that goal.
3. Actions : Do It!
Since your goal is in the distant future, it makes sense why you might lose motivation. That’s why it’s important to take some action toward making it happen. When you accomplish anything that work towards reaching your goal, it will recharge your battery. It can be simply doing some research about the goal. It can be just making a to-do list. It can also be as simple as writing something down in your calendar. If you’re still no longer feeling motivated to pursue your goal then start accomplishing small tasks each day. This will not only get you motivated about your goal, it will also help you achieve it!
Don’t allow a low battery to prevent you from achieving your goal. There are charging stations everywhere 😉
Continue to pursue your desires, your goals, and your dreams. Work hard and continue #SmileInOut #SmileInandOut
