HOW TO MOTIVATE YOURSELF EVERYDAY: A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE FOR DAILY MOTIVATION

Published

How to Motivate Yourself Everyday

Motivation; we’ve all had our moments with it, both good and bad. We’ve all had days when we felt ready to take on the world as soon as the alarm clock went off. Equally, we’ve also had those days where the simple act of getting out of bed feels like one of the most difficult things we’ve ever had to do. To be sure, the only thing consistent about our motivation levels, is its inconsistency. As such, we’ve created this helpful guide to teach you how to motivate yourself everyday.

Getting and staying motivated is almost an art. And the people who have figured out how to keep themselves motivated daily, are typically the people getting better results in their lives. What kind of results? Well, the results related to their goals; be they health goals, financial goals, or career goals. The trick to it all, is finding a way to motivate yourself even when you don’t feel motivated (which is likely most of the time).

So, how do you motivate yourself everyday? Well, a good starting point is to follow these steps outlined below, and leverage the recommended resources, even if you don’t feel like it. We know you won’t be motivated to do these things on most days. And that’s okay, because that’s the challenge of motivation. However, by forcing yourself to do just one or two of these steps, you’ll spark just enough motivation to create a little momentum for yourself.

10 POWERFUL RESOURCES TO GET MOTIVATED DAILY

daily motivation

Having said that, here is our recommended set of tools to help you motivate yourself everyday, even when you are not feeling up to it. The list is ordered from least intensive to more intensive. In other words, the first suggestions will be easier to do then each consecutive suggestion. So, it is recommended that you try the first suggestion on the list to up your motivation. If that doesn’t work, move on to the next. Still not on fire? Move on to the next, and so on and so forth. If you’re ready to some of the best tips for daily motivation, let’s jump right in and get started:

1. Leverage Motivational Quotes

Get Motivated With Quotes

First things first. If you are feeling low on motivation, and you just need a quick reminder or two to get things moving for the day, a good motivational quote can do wonders. Just review 10 to 20 quotes and see how you feel afterwards.

If you feel an uptick in motivation, then you are on the right track. However, if not much has changed, then read a few more. If nothing is changing, skip to the next step.

Before you skip though, try these 100 extremely inspiring motivational quotes first:

2. Recite Motivational Mantras

How-to-Motivate-Yourself-Mantras

If simply reading motivational quotes doesn’t do it for you, then you should move on to the next best thing; reciting mantras or affirmations. By reciting a good motivational mantra or affirmation, you are effectively attempting to short-circuit your subconscious mind.

For whatever reason, you subconscious mind has created an aversion to doing whatever it is you don’t feel like doing. As such, you need to either silence that inner aversion (meditation could help with this), or get your subconscious mind or inner voice to say something else.

So, to get your mind to stop saying “Do I have to?” or “Man I don’t really want to…”, you can start reciting mantras to get that inner voice of yours to change its tune. Here’s our best recommendations for mantras that motivate:

3. Watch Motivational Videos

Get Motivated Daily with Videos

Our next best suggestion after giving mantras a shot, is to watch a few motivational videos. Using motivational videos to get you amped up and in the right frame of mind is extremely easy, and very passive. And the great thing is, there is no shortage of motivational videos on YouTube. Just search motivational videos, and you’ll find what most people are using to find a little motivation themselves.

Of course, if you’re looking for a shortcut, we’ve pulled together a collection of some of the most motivational videos we’ve ever come across. So, give them a shot, and if you need more motivation, there’s always YouTube (just don’t go down the YouTube rabbit hole). Here’s our list:

4. Listen to Motivational Music

Music for Daily Motivation

One of the best kept secrets of high performers, is the use of music to get them moving when they don’t particularly feel like grinding. Music can be used to dial up our drive, and intensity… that in many ways, can’t be tapped by any other means.

Without a doubt, music can be used as a catalyst for increased motivation, it can be leveraged to be the kick in the pants that we all need from time to time.  A good motivational song can get us through those days when we don’t have much to give, it can push you through the slumps.  It can also makes us forget the clock, and lose ourselves in our work.

Which is why we highly recommend you listen to a good motivational song to nudge you along when your mojo has waned. So, give some of these songs a listen to help you get your groove back:

5. Read Motivational Stories

Daily Motivation from Stories

Sometimes a lack of motivation stems from doubts we have about what’s possible for us. All too often, we want to do a certain thing, or achieve a certain goal at first, but we let our dream drift away because of a lack faith in our ability to achieve it. However, one of the best ways to defeat defeatism, is to find people who have achieved theirs goals against the odds.

Reading motivational or inspiring stories of people who had to go through the trials and tribulations you may have or are going through yourself, can give you the reassurance needed to stay motivated. So, the next time you need a little reassurance, give these motivational stories a try:

6. Watch Motivational Movies

Daily Inspiration with Movies

Watching a good motivational movie can do wonders for your motivation. A good movie can put the wind back in just about anyone’s sails. Of course not just any movie will do. To get yourself fired up to take action, the best type of movie to watch is one with an inspirational backstory. Why? Because the ideals put forth in these types of movies helps us recalibrate our values. Ideals can give us better perspective, and in an almost magical way they can help us refresh our mindset.

Again, not all movies will help you maintain your motivation or inspire you enough stay motivated daily, but these specific movies can definitely rekindle your fire for life:

7. Read Motivational Books

Get Motivated Daily with Books

Eventually, you’ll exhaust all the inspiring stories, songs, and videos we’ve provided to get you motivated. At which point, your next best bet will be to take your efforts to the next level. The motivational resources we’ve recently mentioned were more-or-less passive; but this next recommendation will require more from you.

As such, our next best suggestion on how to motivate yourself everyday is to invest in some motivational books. The great thing about books, is there is more to them than a simple story, which means they can provide you with an endless stream of daily motivation. Of course, you’ll have to commit to the actual reading. The good news is, if you are reading one of our highly recommended books, you’ll have enough “want to” to keep reading. So at the bare minimum, give at least one of these books a try:

8. Use a Motivational Journal

Motivate Yourself Everyday with a Journal

What’s a motivational journal? Well, technically any journal can be considered a motivational journal. Because journals help us dive deeper into what we want in life, why we want it, and how we intend to go about getting it. However, there are journals out there that are specifically designed to help you stay motivated enough to take action on your goals daily. Some motivational journals help you track tasks, others help you outline your vision for life, and some just include tons of inspiring words and tidbits to keep you fired up daily.

Ideally, the motivational journal that is going to keep you motivated daily, will include inspiring quotes, sections for collecting your thoughts, task tracking, and most importantly elements that hep you outline your goals. With that being said, here is the motivational journal you should consider:

9. Study Other Motivational Tips

Tools for Everyday Motivation

If you’ve arrived at this step and you are still wondering how to motivate yourself everyday don’t worry, there is still hope. This previous eight motivational tips just scratch the surface of motivation. And as effective as they are, some people’s motivation issues run deeper.

As such, we highly recommend the 14 additional motivation tips suggested here. These motivational tips will help you better understand one of the most critical factors of motivation; goals. It will also provide you with some of the best motivational hacks based on science. So, give them a try:

10. Motivational Blogs and Success Sites

Blogs for Everyday Motivation

As much as we strive to provide you with the best insights when it comes to motivation and success, we also humbly admit that there are other extremely valuable sites out there that can teach you how to get motivated everyday as well. As such, we’ve created a list of the top 100 motivational blogs and success sites that contain tons of inspiring and useful ideas that can get you motivated again.

So, if you’re interested in other ideas, websites, and leaders to help you get more pep in your step, be sure to check out these sites:

Bonus Tip For Daily Motivation

Here’s one last insight for daily motivation. If all else fails, meaning you’ve tried every single one of the suggestions above, and you still can’t find a way to get fired up, then chances are, your goals (if you have any) are misaligned.

So, anytime you seem to be doing everything according to the book when it comes to motivation, yet you still find yourself dragging, reassess your goals. If you already have goals, take a look at them again an see if it’s something you really want to be chasing. On top of that, make sure they are S.M.A.R.T. goals, otherwise they won’t be as effective as they could be.

Get your goals aligned with what you really and truly want to be doing, and then write those goals down, and more often than not, they’ll practically pull you out of bed each and every morning.

Final Thoughts on Daily Motivation

We’ve been studying the science of motivation for over five years now, and if there is one thing we know about motivation, it is that it must be stoked constantly. Much like the fire you build while out camping, if you stop fueling the fire, whether it be in the form of oxygen or wood, the fire will eventually die out.

So, bookmark this page, and come back to it daily. Use the resources provided to help you stoke your motivation, and keep that driving force by which we humans achieve our goals, alive and well.

What many of those who quit too soon don’t realize, is that they do have what it takes.  They have what it takes, because there is a second wind that exists in all of us.  A reserve of energy and enthusiasm that exists even when we feel like we have nothing left to give.  But, the only way to tap this reserve, is by deciding to keep moving forward in the face of adversity.  To choose to not give up, to try one more time, and just push through the pain!

Our hope, is that these motivational quotes about not giving up, will give you enough of a spark to get you past your slump.  Because it is past that slump where all the magic happens.  It is beyond that slump, where your success will be found.
