50 Ways To Stay Awesomely Motivated 1. Start with a solid plan - What is your ultimate goal? Know what it is and put it down on paper. 2. Dont be afraid to make mistakes Anyone that has ever achieved greatness, experienced failure at some point in their life. You have to know that failing is all part of success. 3. Theres strength in numbers Learn to utilize your team or those who are in your network. You cant always walk it alone.

Set vivid goals - Work out What you need to do and by When you need it accomplished by. Keep your eyes on the prize baby. 5. Learn to work the tools Your mind, the computer, a phone, word of mouth or text. Learn how to use each platform and medium around you. The more tools you know how to use, the more ammunition for the challenge. 6. Go back to the basics KISS (Keep It Stupidly Simple). Sometimes there is no need to overcomplicate things, slim line your approach, sometimes the answer to your success is staring you right in the eyes. 7. You arent here to people please Know that at the end of the day, its how you feel when the job is done and dusted. No one will feel the achievement quite like you will when you pull through. 8. Look for a solution When you hit a road block, keep moving, dont lose momentum, shift the energy from panicking to exploring, there is always a million and one ways to make it work. 9. Fail more Marketing Genius Seth Godin said it best, The more you fail, the more you win. Keep failing, the gold is at the end of the rainbow, dont lose hope. 10. Change will make you stronger You cant grow or learn without change, something has to change for you to reach the next level. 11. Create your own path Break the rules a little; create an environment where you are KING. Where you have more room to move, and anything goes so that it works in your favor. 12. Reflect and then adjust Look back and see how far you have come. There is no use in stopping now, you already committed.

Identify your bad habits Be familiar with the habits that are slowing you down, if you arent excelling then theres an underlying bad habit in play. Nip it in the bud ASAP. 15. Pace and then explode! You dont want to burn out too quickly. Give your mind and your body enough time to recharge for a killer punch of enthusiasm when its needed. 16. Expect a delay in reward Know that most of the time, the reward does not come straight away. Nothing great ever came that easy. But when you get there it feels like a million bucks, keep moving! 17. Break through Plateaus A.S.A.P - Plateaus are those things that hold you back from growing and improving. Be aware of when you hit a plateau, when you do, its time to shake things up. Try a different approach; learn something new so that you can break through the barriers. 18. Think long term Think to yourself, What kind of legacy will this achievement leave behind? It may be hard now but what you do right now could really set you and others around you up for life. 19. Dont feel sorry for yourself If you are facing a hard challenge, man up! Know that you can make it through and that you were faced with the cards at hand and that you where chosen because you have it in you to make it out alive. 20. Keep positive people around you Negative people are toxic, they are life leeches. The last thing you need is someone around you that is quick to say, thats not possible. 21. Believe in working your ass off If you believe everything is meant to be easy you are in for a shock. Know that working your ass off will give you massive gains for the future. 22. Visualize the reward differently Losing hope? Visualize your end goal in different colors, different ways, angles, shapes and forms. Make it so real and attractive in your mind that you are so close to touching it. Now go out there and get it. You just owned it. Its yours! 23. Learn to laugh at the excuses The ANTs in your head, the Annoying Negative Thoughts, can sometimes get the best of you. Learn to laugh at the ridiculous excuses you are making, make a stand that you wont let any negative thoughts hold you back from your success anymore.

I bet you are quick to tell others they should make a move when the time comes. Make sure that you are no hypocrite in the process. Hold yourself to your own word. 25. You must believe Know that sometimes you will need to believe in yourself, even when nobody else is around to believe that you can do it. Solidify your beliefs, you deserve it, you can do it! 26. You are an inspiration Someone out there, somewhere is watching you and your progress, your achievements and performance. Even if its just one person, you could be all they need as a source of Inspiration to achieve their own success. If you cant do it for you, do it for them! 27. Change your internal dialogue Stop saying, I may, I might, I could. Start saying, I Can, I Will, I MUST! These are words of certainty, and youll be amazed how much of a difference they can make in motivating your mind to take action. 28. Switch up your body language and posture Are you slouching? I bet you are, most of the time we are. Stick your chest out, lift your chin up and smile, laugh or scream. Change your physiology so that you can change your state. I have never seen a winner who has ever looked depressed. 29. Focus on the feeling of achievement How are you going to feel after you achieve your goal? Visualize how excited, pumped and confident you are going to feel when you hit the target you are aiming for. 30. Take a little time to re-align Sometimes we lose focus on what we are really trying to achieve. We get caught up in the struggle and forget how important it is to balance our mind and body. Put yourself in a quick two ten minute time out so that your mind and body can regroup and work together. 31. Find an awesome mantra Your mantra can be an affirmation, slogan or quote. Something that YOU can use universally that will motivate you to win. A lot of successful athletes use mantras before their big game or race and it has been proven to work well in self-motivating the mind to shift to a more kick ass state. 32. No more heavy food Nutrition is a massive part of our everyday lives. If we are constantly filling our body with starchy, sugary, heavy, and oily foods then our digestive system has to work on overtime, leaving our mind and body functioning at a slower rate. Start filling your body with good nutrition and youll have an abundance of energy to stay motivated for longer.

Music has an amazing affect on the mind. It is powerful enough to motivate humans to move and dance, and increases activity in the mind. Use this powerful tool to switch it up to a whole new level of motivation. 34. Award yourself Award yourself for every achievement you make. You will start to create an awesome effect within your psyche that conditions you with more positive thoughts and will help you build a stronger belief that the hard work will definitely pay off every time. 35. Define your motive When you start to lose sight define your motive, why are you chasing this dream and what does it mean to you? Constantly define why you need to achieve it and attach it to a strong enough WHY. 36. Who is your hero? Find somebody to look up to? Who has been where you want to go? Do you find inspiration in Steve Jobs, Tony Robbins, Oprah Winfrey, Bruce Lee or Arnold Schwarzenegger? Find your hero and live by their philosophies. 37. Become a leader The responsibility of leading others to achieve success is a strong motivator in itself. It draws everything out of you, it demands resourcefulness and can re-assure you that you can be respected and admired by others. 38. Read a Self Development Book There are millions of years worth of knowledge compiled into the books that are available at our fingertips nowadays. Some people have spent a life-time sharing their mistakes, their adversities and their triumphs through books, why would you not get your hands on a book that will light the fire in your belly and inspire you to move? 39. Stop looking for complexities When we over analyze and look into what we are about to do for too long, we talk ourselves out of it. We procrastinate and procrastination is what stops us from growing to our full potential. Start by simplifying what you need to do and smash it! 40. Know should that where you are now, wont last forever You either move or move over. Which way would you rather be heading? Your mindset should be that you are always, with every action, becoming something greater.

You could be making things harder for yourself by leaving something totally obvious out, check in with yourself and find the shift that is needed to get you back on the grid. 42. Stop with the uncertainty Focus on your self-talk. Are you talking BIG or you talking to your self like a damn pipsqueak? Beef up what you are saying to yourself and use positive words, words that will help you to become more certain of how powerful you really are. Us humans are designed to be incredible beings, dont you forget that. 43. You are built to adapt Our bodies are so amazing that we can literally throw anything at it and it will compensate 100 times over and go against it until it falls apart if we let it. The problem is that our mind gives up 100 times over before our bodies do. How much further can you go with what you need to do? Will your body allow it? Ask yourself that question and be real with yourself, have you out performed yourself in this situation before? If yes, then what are you waiting for? If no, then why not see how far you can go? The benefit will be you raised the bar and you will grow. Sounds like a win-win to me! 44. The struggle is really an award The hurdles are there to see how much you really deserve success. For every hurdle that is in place that you jump over, weave around, or break through is a hurdle someone else didnt have the guts to complete. You are one cut above the rest. If it were easy then there would be no greatness in achieving the task at hand. Embrace the hurdles and show them whos BOSS!! 45. Shift the doubt Its easy to focus on how hard something is, but the reason why we focus on the hard is because we doubt ourselves. Stop Doubting Yourself! Start doubting your fears instead, laugh at the stupid thought of you being scared of something that doesnt exist or hasnt even happened yet. If we doubted our fears instead of doubting our dreams, imagine how much in life wed accomplish? 46. Its either up or down At any given moment in time you are either moving away or towards success. Up is where the fresh air is, down is where its stale and over crowded. Harness your will to be someone who is always moving up!

What are you doing with your 1,080 at hand? Every successful person that has ever walked this earth has learned an important lesson about time at some point in his or her life. They learned that time is money or more importantly that time is of the essence. Use the time you have wisely. It will be over before you know it. Morbid.but true. 48. Find someone who hates you Sounds crazy, I know. But this one might actually work. A common theme in the reasoning behind a number of successful people shows that they where driven to prove their friends and family members wrong. This could be the fuel to your fire. Just expect that they are going to be harsh, channel that into you showing them that you are more than they expected. 49. Get familiar with your standards How high is your bar set? How good do you believe you really are? Really think about this and set a visual bar in the air, in your mind for your beliefs in what you can achieve. See the problem is that most people dont even know what their standards are; they just stab aimlessly in the dark and go by how they are feeling on the day. That is not good enough my friend! We only get what we believe we deserve. Raise the bar, r...
