It’s not the same thing as setting goals and achieving them. All of us have our goals, even small ones; we’re all striving to attain them in life. But we’re a bit behind schedule and lose motivation when it comes to the execution of the plan. And it leaves us with the feeling that we can’t go through the steps necessary to make them real.
Here are some practical ways to drive yourself forward to accomplish your goals and change your life.


#1: Enter into a contract with yourself.
You need to make a deal with yourself if you want to start doing things and stop wasting your time. And, of course, this could be a big or little deal. You can say, for example, ‘When I’ve finished this job, I want to watch my favorite film and enjoy some warm chocolate.’ Give yourself a treat as soon as you have completed your task, and it will make you feel more motivated to do so.

#2: This morning, send messages to yourself. Sometimes it’s so difficult to get out of bed and drink a glass of water in the morning. It may be a morning when you look in the mirror and don’t like what you see. It might kill the incentive you have and sometimes destroy your day.
You can avoid this issue by finding a message that will inspire you to be your best at your worst, even if you don’t look or feel like it. Write the self-affirming message on your bathroom mirror or wherever you can see it more often. This will help you feel better about yourself and begin a new day on a positive note.


#3: The snooze button should not be pressed. One word, “Just five more minutes,” can quickly rob you of your motivation. By hitting your snooze button, you’re starting your day off by procrastinating and eventually not making it up for getting up and going. It won’t do you any good to have an extra five minutes in bed in the morning, and it’ll kill your motivation.


#4: Practice your positive talk. Start practicing positive self-talk if you’re having a hard time getting out of bed in the morning. If you want to get out of bed and get going in the morning, talk to yourself in a way that makes it easier. Rather than moan and hit the snooze button when it comes on in the morning, say to yourself, I can do this!


#5: Make sure to stay on schedule. Knowing your schedule and staying on it as much as you can will help you motivate yourself if you know what’s expected of you. And in times when things don’t go as planned, that can interrupt a schedule. Knowing that you have one plan in place can make it much easier to stay on track and still stay productive during the day.


#6: Breakfast’s a big deal. Eating a good breakfast is exactly what you should do to get started with the day. In the morning, pick a meal that is appropriate to your diet and keeps you focused on everyday tasks and objectives. You need to start your day at the right time when you feel stuck for a while, so have a go-to meal that provides nutrition.


#7: Have a routine for the morning. It can help you achieve motivation throughout the rest of your day by having a routine in the morning. When you know what to expect and know that once it’s done, what comes next will help you make it through your day.
Changes in your routine can make it difficult to think clearly and have a productive day. However, doing the same general activities in the same manner can build a habit and help you get going.


#8: Take part in morning exercises. The first thing in the morning can improve your blood flow, get you moving, and keep you from feeling sleepy or sluggish all day long. Take a morning walk, go to the gym, or even participate in a simple stretching routine.


#9: Just do one step at a time. Just focus on one action at a time. If you’re going to be thinking about everything that has to happen, your energy level is going to decrease as well. Take it easy, focus on one step at a time, and don’t think about what you’ve got to do. You wouldn’t lose the mental energy that you had left if you focused solely on immediate action.


#10: Keep moving forward; that’s all. It’s a matter of forcing yourself to go on. And once you get moving, keep moving. First of all, be productive and complete the job that you set out to do. Do not allow yourself to fool yourself into thinking that one day you will be able to do this. Because that’s going to take a lot of unnecessary things off the table, which in turn is going to lead to procrastination.


#11: Reward yourself. Establishing a reward for yourself when you are successful in completing difficult tasks can help maintain motivation, keep on doing your job, and get it done within the time limit set.


#12: Please write down your notes. You can feel better about yourself by writing encouraging notes to yourself and leaving encouraging notes in places you often look. It can be very helpful to remind yourself that you’re capable of doing it and surviving whatever obstacles life might bring your way.


#13: Follow your progress. When your list of things to do looks like it’s been unfinished for quite some time, Do a little breathing and count all the tasks that you have completed, then give yourself a small pat on the back. Tracking your progress is a way of keeping motivated while continuing the work you still need to do.


#14: Make a couple of short goals. It’s best to split it into smaller pieces if you want to achieve a great goal. It’s extremely easy to get bogged down when you set unrealistic targets, and it’s much easier to be disappointed. If you set small and attainable goals from the beginning, they will keep you motivated when you achieve them, so that you can move on to the next step.

#15: Work on a single project at a time. You need to focus on completing one project at a time so that you can remain motivated. You may think multitasking is a good idea until you realize you have unfinished tasks on your list. So you’re going to be more productive when you focus all your efforts on one project at a time and then see it through before starting the next.


#16: Turn to someone else. When things get tough, turning to those around you can be a great resource when it comes to finding your motivation. Get some supportive friends and relatives on Facebook, or just join the community that shares your goal.


#17: Get rid of your mind. Sometimes it’s best to let go of your situation and, particularly if you get completely caught up in an overwhelming feeling, breathe deeply. Allow your mind to relax so it doesn’t get distracted by the stresses that are out there now. Keep your mind clear and you’ll get a fresh perspective that you need to keep motivated.


#18: Think of the things that excite you. If you’re short on energy, take a look at the things that get your blood pumping and make you move. Use the thought and stick with it. Remind yourself of what will drive you when you face a lack of energy.


#19: Listen to feel-good music. Music is a very powerful force to calm you down, and in no time it will make you feel good again. If you’re low on motivation, listening to good music can help you get going. For example, if you don’t have energy or motivation, make a playlist of your favorite songs that you like to listen to and play. It’s going to have a positive effect on your motivation and energy.


#20: Get a mantra for yourself. Think of the little words that get you going, reminding yourself what they mean and why you do what you do. It does not have to be long; it only has to put you in a position to achieve what you set yourself as your goal.
