What Keeps you Motiviated Daily?

Posted on: August 12, 2013


You have trained long and hard, and there’s no way you’re not making it to the finish line. Years of hard work and training are not about to go in vain. You cross the finish line and the crowd goes wild, cheering for your great accomplishment. The greatest joy you feel is from within. Why? You set out to do something you’d never done before, you took a chance, gave it all you had and finished strong. That great sense of accomplishment comes because you finished what you started. You went for the challenge and made it happen.

That, my friends, is exactly how I will feel when I complete The Suitcase Entrepreneur 30 Day Blog Challenge. And guess what it’s not too late to join. Challenge yourself!

Today’s prompt is:

Which key tools will you turn to regularly to maintain your mindset and how will you use them effectively?

I am a highly motivated individual already, but that doesn’t mean I don’t need external motivators. Here are the top ways I maintain my mindset.

20130812-123011.jpgEvery morning my alarm clock goes off with a reminder to workout, something that reminds me why I even made that commitment in the first place. Right now my alarm notification reads “Time to Run” since I’m training for a half-marathon and it’s also a song I love by Lord Huron.

When it’s time to head out the door to work I have another push notification scheduled, this one is just a reminder “Your attitude shapes your day. You’ve got this!”

I follow inspirational boards on Pinterest and check-in ever so often to find a beautiful quote of the day.

I read success stories of others who have been when I have been and want to go where I want to go (like The Suitcase Entrepreneur)!

I push myself a bit more each day to move forward and do what I have never done before. After all when I up the stakes and beat it, it’s winning my own game. And let me tell you, I like to win!

How do you stay motivated daily?

Inspirational quotes, interacting with others who share my experiences, and allowing myself to dream are all motivators. I’m an active person and I try to do/go somewhere new once each week to keep freshness in my life.

It’s a great idea to try something new or go somewhere new every weeks. It keeps life interesting!

You’re right. I’m excellent at perfecting routine until it becomes a rut. My crusade this year is to break out of my routine periodically and I’ve done well at it thus far. Your posts are inspiring, which is why I keep coming back. 🙂

[…] I don’t believe in impossibilities. We’ve seen abstract ideas become possibilities and vague concepts turned into reality. All it takes is the right mindset. […]

Don't be shy, share your thoughts!
