10 (simple) ways to motivate yourself

by Seema Sinha
1. Ask mood uplifting questions in the morning like what makes you happy, what are you happy and excited about in your life currently. This is a good exercise to bring in positivity in you when you start your day.2. Make a deal with yourself. You can even make a small deal like after I am done with my work I will take a walk in the park and enjoy a burger or an ice-cream.

3. Do some small activity to feel good. Just clean your desk or wardrobe or arrange your clothes. You just need to get started to get motivated.

4. Don’t compare yourself with others. It can kill your motivation as there are always people ahead of you. So focus on you and on your results.

5. Cherish your successes instead of failures.

6. Get inspired by your heroes. Read about them, watch them, listen to them.

7. Try to create fun in every task. It will keep you motivated to finish them.

8. Accept challenges. Get out of your comfort zone to get a real boost of motivation.

9. Think out-of-the-box, think different. Your possibilities can be much larger, perhaps you are not giving thought to it and getting into the rut.

10. Don’t fear failure. Instead learn from it and redefine it as a natural part of a successful life.
