Daily Affirmations – Be inspired daily.

1They say that the only person you can depend on is yourself. And I couldn’t agree more with this… If you know and love yourself enough, even when everyone has turned their backs on you, you will still have yourself to count on. And to reinforce my confidence I use the power of daily affirmations.

To me daily affirmations are best exemplified to reading and absorbing daily inspirational quotes. When you have an affirmation, it becomes your mantra for the day and you help yourself attract things and situations that will support your personal affirmation. And many quotes are powerful messages that are easy to remember.

These quotes in the form of inspirational messages may seem like a small thing, but I do believe in attracting things that you firmly believe in and repeat to yourself. If you work towards your affirmations, the world will conspire to make that happen as well.

So when you wake up tomorrow, try thinking of affirmations or use great quotes and say them to yourself in front of the mirror before you head out. And see how it can make an impact on how your day can turn out.

How do you motivate yourself daily?

Weight as well as a good lifestyle have been something I’ve been struggling with for several years now. My busy, workaholic mind has been neglecting my body for some time. And recently I’ve decided it has to stop and I have to make some changes if I want to be healthier and enjoy life more.

As expected, the process is never easy. There are days when I find myself cheating and eating starchy foods as opposed to fresh and healthy food. There are also those days when exercising becomes the first thing I procrastinate.

And because every day is a battle with myself, I knew I needed to find daily motivational tips that worked for me. Let me share with you some of the motivational steps that have helped me.

1. Make your goals more visible – On my computer screen, I put the weight that I’m targeting. It’s so simple but since I work and even eat on my desk every day, it’s easy for me to remind myself about my weight goal, before I decide on visiting the fridge. I have also drawn a graph to show  my projected goal for each day and my actual weight so I can see how I am progressing.

2. Repeat your mantra – I have this particular mantra that I read from a book once. The book said, when you are faced with a difficult situation ask yourself: “What if I fail? And what if I succeed?” Usually when I feel like just quitting, I ask myself these questions. It then gets me thinking of what situation I want to be in… Obviously I would like to be in a situation where I can say that I succeeded. This instantly gets me back on track.

3. Close your eyes and visualize the perfect you – There will be those days where you will need to be strict and tough with yourself. Sometimes the best motivator is ourselves. When I know I’m about to order dessert, I make a conscious effort to pause, close my eyes and see myself looking  my best and feeling good.

How do you motivate yourself every day? We’d love to hear from you in the comments below!

Don’t stop believing

There’s this Pop song that I keep hearing on the radio lately; it’s called ‘Don’t stop believing’ by Journey. It used to be just another song for me. But one day I remember when I was feeling really depressed because things were not exactly turning out the way I want them to. Then I heard this song again. And the words that really stuck with me were

“Don’t stop believing..”

It was all random but it was one of those daily motivational messages you hear unexpectedly.

What’s the best motivational message you’ve heard of lately?

What is your greatest motivating factor?

There are a lot of factors that could motivate us to do certain things. Some people are motivated with power, while others are motivated out of fear. Below are some common factors that usually get people to stand up and take some action.

1. Reward – We’ve all experienced this, especially when we were kids. When your parents tell you to clean your room in exchange for ice cream. Or when your teacher gives you a good score if you do well on a math test. Having the knowledge that you will be rewarded for a certain action can be highly motivating for some people; especially when the stakes are high.

2. Fear – Some people are motivated by fear. When they see how a situation is going to end and they don’t like the possible consequences, it usually is a great motivating factor to wake up and make sure it doesn’t end up the way they don’t want it to.

3. Peer pressure – Whether we admit it or not acceptance of society and those around you is a greatest motivating factor in our lives. The idea of fitting into a group or being praised by your peer is enough to motivate us to excel. It can be as simple as jumping off a cliff with friends or moving to a new city; our peers can be a great motivating factor that makes us take action.

What is your greatest motivating factor? Do you agree with the factors above? Share in the comments below!

Kick-start Your Motivation

“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” — Jim Ryun

There are certain moments in our lives when we just don’t feel motivated to get up and make a difference in our lives. Whether it’s going to work, finishing a project, or simply getting that leak in the kitchen fixed; we all need motivation to get us going.

So how can we regain motivation once we feel we’re losing it?

Below are some simple tips on how to kick-start your motivation.

1. Set one goal at a time – Usually when you have too much going on in your life the feeling of reaching the finish line becomes less and less a reality and in turn sucks your energy and motivation away. It’s best to set one goal at a time and focus your energy on it. It may also help if you read motivational messages every now and then to stay inspired.

2. Never lose sight of the finish line – If you ingrain an idea in your mind little by little every day, the more likely you attract it to happen. Think about your goal everyday and keep reminding yourself ways you can attain it. This will fuel your fire daily.

3. Take small steps – When you have a big goal, it helps if you make small achievable steps along the way. The feeling of fulfillment for every step will make you feel even more successful and motivate you to finish the your goal. Success builds success.
