How to Re-Charge Your Motivation

We all go though times when we have issues rekindling the motivation we once had for a project or business. These are issues that all successful entrepreneurs and business people have had throughout their journey. They are nothing to be ashamed of and in fact should be embraced so you can learn to use these moments to charge up your batteries.

Peter Banerjea recently wrote an article for Addicted2Success.com on 10 Ways to Super-Charge Your Motivation. Below is a short snippet from the post:

 

3. Power Song

Do you have a song that can magically lift your mood? A ‘power song’ that you just have to shake your body to? Think ‘Rocky’ or ‘Superman’ soundtracks or anything else that gets you moving.

Keep a playlist of power songs on your phone that you can switch on anytime.

4. Borrow some Energy

Motivation is contagious. Just pick up the phone and call a friend or colleague who’s doing really well.
10 minutes of hearing about their success stories is all that it will take for you to hang up and get back to work!

If they can do it, why can’t you?

 5. Write down your BHAGs

You might have SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time Bound), but do you have BHAGs? (Big, Hairy, Audacious Goals).

Your BHAGs should stretch the limits of your potential. They are long term goals that challenge you to think way outside your comfort zone. Write your BHAGS in large letters and place the sheet where you can see it multiple times during the day.

 6. Get a Quick Win

When the odds look overwhelming, get a quick win. Do a quick task from your to-do list, perhaps a task that you had kept on the backburner.

How does this work? By giving you a feeling of progress. If you are feeling stuck, a small feeling of momentum is often all that you might need to recharge your motivational batteries.

Check out the rest of them here and start supercharging your own motivation…

    Recharging my motivation is something I’ve been struggling with for a long time. I have so many goals and dreams that sometimes people think I’ve completely lost it. Thanks for your article. It has helped me to start thinking like a winner, to go after my dreams and not give up mid-way.
