Motivation is key to rising above life challenges. The first step to overcoming that challenge is to know what motivates you.

How Do You Stay Motivated?

In these tough times it’s easy to get down trodden when things aren’t going right. It’s easy to get discouraged when things aren’t going the way we’d like them to. Motivation is key for times like these but it seems as if our strength always fails us when we need it most. So, what do you do? How do you keep it together when everything around you is falling apart? How do you find that drive to continue when the road is getting rockier? How do you keep motivated?

Reflect on Your Reason For Motivation

According to Dictionary.com motivation is the act or an instance of motivating, or providing with a reason to act in a certain way. Something that motivates; inducement; incentive".

I’ve found that it helps to do some reflection and introspection about what moves you into action, what keeps you going, what motivates you. What is the reason that your performing this action? What's at stake if you don't complete it? To be motivated, you need to constantly remind yourself of what’s important, you need to focus continually on your ultimate goal. Otherwise you may lose sight of the reason you need to press on.

It also helps to keep the things that inspire you close by, whether it’s your favourite song, a creative drawing, a breath-taking sculpture, a captivating picture or an inspiring movie. When things get tough draw for the things that inspire you; when you feel like you can’t carry on, reflect on the reason you must continue: your ultimate goal. If you've just about tried everything and you still don't have the drive to continue then pray about it. He’ll give you the strength you need, after all He’s always there for you.
