Hey Lovelies, I hope you are all well and are blessed by the time this post reaches you.
So, I have recently been reading Naming My Voice‘s blog and she does this amazing thing where she writes lists of what she has done, what has happened or what she is going to do, simple, yes, but still very inspiring.
These days we often like to complicate things and we forget that there is much more substance in simplicity.
With that being said I will be sharing a list of things that will hopefully help you and myself stay motivated.
❤ Good vibes Only….
❤ Make clear and concise goals, then remind yourself of them.
A mixture of short- and long-term goals is ideal, variety is important when it comes to these sort of things. Remember to keep your goals realistic, that way you will not be disheartened if you don’t reach them. That doesn’t mean you can’t push and challenge yourself though, if you don’t challenge yourself, then it’s not really a goal. Keep track of your goals and check your progress, this helps you stay motivated on a day to day basis.
❤ Check your mic…
By this I mean make sure you are keeping up with their goals if you want to stay motivated. If you see that you are on track or even excelling every time you check your progress, you will be motivated and happy that you are getting there. If you see that you are lagging on your goals, get into first gear, get that clutch to bite, set your revs and get back on the road to continue your journey. ( i drive a manual car lol can you tell )
❤ Reward yourself just because…
Honey! you’re putting in the much-needed effort, you deserve a reward, it’s not easy being you, sis !!. This could be as simple as a bowl of ice cream after a long hard week, watching your favorite series, having that extra slice of pizza, beating your face to the gawds – I am talking about makeup, don’t be alarmed lol. Whatever rewards will keep you going are the ones you should be giving yourself.
❤ I Am Tired…
Sometimes even the most determined people get overwhelmed. Don’t burn yourself out, take a much-needed break this might be just what you need. If it is a fitness goal, maybe take a three- or four-day rest instead of your normal one- or two-day rest. If it is at work, school, university, you are a superwoman /man please don’t try to do all your work in one sitting, stretch it out over the course of the day or week, if possible. Refresh yourself.
❤ Don’t be hard on yourself…
Everyone falls short sometimes. If you fail to meet your goals for the week, take it as a lesson. Try to complete your next target before time, so that you can use the saved time to complete the pending work. This way you stay right on schedule even if you have taken a hit. It’s not always about how hard you hit, but how well you can take a hard hit and keep moving on. Don’t dwell on failure; just accept it as a human occurrence, and continue working towards your goals.
❤ Pray Pray Pray Pray…
As you all know I am a Christian, my faith in God is my lifeline in all matters of my life. If you are of not any faith I encourage you to meditate, allow the little voice in your head to calm your spirit. we often mistake that voice for ourselves but that is the Holy spirit- believe it or not, he speaks for us when we cannot, he reassures and guides always.
I am sure there is a lot more you do to keep yourself motivated and I would love to read what you have to say in the comments.
Until next time,
Love C’awanzi XoXo
