Are you bored with your life? Are you uninspired to update your blog? Are you lazy to shoot your short film? Let's put that aside now because we're bringing you 12 simple tricks that will help you GEt back on track right away.
1. Start now
Tell yourself to start this moment. Not in the evening and not tomorrow, right NOW.
2. Set a performance goalSetting a goal helps you find your way forward. This comes in handy for various things, such as, if you have a bunch of emails to reply to, or laundry to do, or bills to pay. Setting a goal will help you tackle all of this.
3. Make an if-then rule
The if-then rule is very simple. Suppose you finish a task that had been pending a while, treat yourself. For minor tasks, you can get yourself chocolates or a nice meal. For bigger tasks, you can treat yourself with a vacation.
4. Don’t think about survival
Everyone learns to survive sooner or later. Sadly, we are so worried about making enough money, or doing things the right away, that we forget to look at the more important things. Instead of survival, we should motivate ourselves to become the best version of ourselves, the best of everything. We should aim at setting an example and nothing Less than that.
5. Rise above your insecurities
Instead of feeling jealous about other people’s successes, try and figure out the reason behind it. There must be a story. They would have developed great habits, worked hard and made certain compromises to get where they have.
6. Get a routine
Believe it or not, this habit makes a huge difference. A routine can help you get your life on track. It will keep you going. When you finally have a routine to follow, focus on it and try to get better at it every day.
7. Embrace discipline
There are times when you’ll realize that motivation isn’t the problem. Instead, being non-disciplined is. Has it ever happened with you that you are constantly inspired to work towards your goal, but you can’t make time for it? This is where discipline comes in the picture.
8. Keep realistic expectations from yourself
Don’t add too many things on your to-do list. DON’T give yourself improbable deadlines.
9. Stay away from toxic people
Stay away from people who make you feel terrible about yourself. Keep miles away from that girl who cribs all the time. And stop talking to that fellow who can never utter a nice word about you.
10. Understand the value of that ‘extra’ bit
It is possible that you have both talent and resources. You are working hard, but you’re falling short because you are failing to take that extra step. Think about it. Maybe you are just that tiny step away.
11. Ask yourself - ‘ Do I want it bad enough?’
The answer to this question will tell you how far you are willing to go to fulfil your dreams.
12. Stick notes
You need to be constantly inspired. So stick inspiring notes on your office table, or put motivational wallpapers on your laptop. Every time you feel bored, just look at it. It sounds silly but these things actually help.
