1. Embrace a visionary mindset
Based on findings from a study conducted in University of Virginia, your mantra in business should revolve around your future expectations as a way of nurturing business motivation. Even if the future seems far away, you should envisage your future success. As much as we draft our long term goals, we majorly pay attention to short term goals. However, we should actualize the short term goals as we focus on how they can propel us to our future expectations. The same sentiments are echoed by Jeff Bezos who has propel Amazon to success. In essence, the key thing is long-term thinking.
2. Overcome the fear of starting a task
Most people have a hard time starting a task. If you resolve to start a task and proceed to do so, you gradually build the motivation to continue on with it. The quicker you resolve to do it the better for you. Marissa Mayer, a former Yahoo CEO expresses that you achieve growth by undertaking that task which you feel less motivated to do. By teaching yourself to overcome the hurdles you face while doing a task, you are achieve success in the long run.
3. Share your plans with someone
Your personal motivation is to some extent influenced by social pressure. Suppose there is a major objective you want to achieve. Start by discussing it with a fellow employee or close friend. This way, you know you have to be accountable to that person. This will motivate you to try extremely hard to realize your plan. You can also tell a large number of people: maybe all your colleagues. By doing so, you will feel even more obliged to fulfill the promise you made to them.
4. Keep a positive mindset
According to credible studies, positive self-talk can yield increased motivation, self-confidence and self-awareness. But negative self-talk leads to a counteractive impact. Change your “I cannot handle this” attitude to “I know I can do it, I just need to try harder” attitude. When you do that, you will be more psyched to work towards achieving your goals.
5. Have a clear to do list
Organize your day by having a well outlined to do list. Accomplished people such as April Underwood (vice president of product at Slack) point out that a to do list helps individuals to understand what needs to be done in a day. This in turn helps a person to have a smooth day and not to feel overwhelmed in striving to complete tasks. Whenever you accomplish a particular task, put a tick against it. With a to do list, you will feel inspired to perform the day’s tasks and evaluate your progress at the end of the day.
