We nearly all want to change ourselves, usually by trying to develop better habits, like tidying after ourselves, writing more, eating less, etc. It is not always easy. Changing those habits can be hard, it moves us out of our comfort zone to somewhere we can feel VERY uncomfortable. But there are creative ways to help yourself stick to your chosen goals to make them part of your life.
One way to help stay focused on your goal is to anticipate what MIGHT happen. Look forward and work out what might derail your progress. We often plan for change but we never actually try and see what actually might interrupt out plans. If you think about these, you may be able to include them in your plan in a way that helps you stick to your goals.

Why is it that some people consistently seem to get more done than others? The answer is that they know how to set specific, achievable goals for themselves…and then follow through on them. This rev…Read more…
Keep to the Path
Stick to your chosen path or if necessary find a new suitable path if an obstacle appears. Obstacles can derail you from your chosen path but if you keep your path in mind or find another suitable one if that is blocked can mean you keep your eye on the game and focus on what you want to achieve.
Learn from any setbacks instead of giving up on the goal. If you fall, get up and carry on, you do not need to stop because of one fall or even several. Ask yourself what made you fall? What lessons can you learn? And how do you stop that type of fall in future?
Keeping focus when the going gets tough is what actually makes moving towards the goal worthwhile. By the time you achieve your goal, you will have grown as a person.

Hi and welcome to the motivation thoughts blog. It is aimed at getting you to get up off your seat to do something – something that YOU WANT to do, even if your inner self is grumbling about it. Look out for posts on getting your study skills honed, for getting your exercise included in your routine, on time management, on getting your writing done, whether it’s your novel, your thesis or a school essay and how to get the house clean among other things!
So What is Motivation?
Motivation is the inner force you can develop and use to get things done that YOU want to do!
But what EXACTLY is Motivation?
Motivation is personal power and it has 3 parts to it, passion, energy and ability.
To get motivated you need to get passionate about what YOU WANT to do. You’ve felt that passion before – maybe you were determined to keep that hula hoop up longer than anyone else, or perhaps you really wanted to paint the best ever picture in your class, or kick the longest goal or have the techiest new equipment. This blog will help YOU remember what that passion was like and start you on the road to develop YOUR passion for whatever it is YOU want to do, whether it’s to get more exercise, improve your grades in school or college or university, keep your living quarters from becoming a pig sty or become a better entrepreneur.
You need two types of energy for motivation: short term energy – the kick in the seat to get
you started and stuck in; and long term energy, to keep you going when the going gets tough. This blog will help you get that energy, both short term energy to get a good start on what you want to do and that long term energy to keep your battery going! Think of the short term energy as striking a match – that sudden flare of energy that starts you off on your new project or gets you stuck back in to a project that you have left lying. The long term energy can be thought of as a reservoir, keeping a steady flow of energy for powering you through the tough times.
Now, don’t panic – this is NOT about being a star before you start. This is about making sure your dreams are actually possible. It’s great to have a dream about being able to fly. But if it involves literally growing a set of wings, that MAY not be possible. On the other hand, Orville and Wilbur Wright had that dream and they developed the aeroplane. This blog will help you work out how to achieve your dream and the best possible way of achieving it within your ability – and flying IS possible.
What Do YOU Know About Motivation?
I have been interested in motivation all my life, right from when I was in school and knew I needed to get my homework done but the television or playing outside had a much greater call on my senses. Over 40 years later, I have learned how to keep a house clean, get a degree and even get a higher research degree, lose weight and get fit. Along the way, I have learned a few tips and tricks to make work a LOT easier and I want to share those with you, if you will let me. Thank you for reading this far.
