MID-YEAR MOTIVATION

All comments()

We have reached the midyear point when people may not be feeling as motivated as they were months ago when New Year's resolutions were being made. The good news is that there is still time to make the most of the remaining year. MetroStyle has come up with a few suggestions on how to get reenergized and refocused in your professional role.


Reassess Your Goals
Go back and remind yourself of the goals you set at the beginning of the year. Write down where you see yourself ten years from today? What do you want to achieve by then? Remember, no hopes and dreams are too big. Let your imagination go wild. As someone once said, “the dreamers are the saviours of the world.”

Refresh your head
Sometimes our minds can become stagnant if we follow the same routines and spend our time with the same people over a period of time. Don’t let routine limit your potential. Make sure you are continually learning something new, and constantly being challenged. It’s a good idea to network with new people who challenge and inspire you.

Invest in yourself
Spend at least one hour a day in self-development. Read good books or listen to inspiring tapes. Traveling to and from work provides an excellent opportunity to listen to self-improvement tapes, or read inspiration stories and quotes.

Get Active
Exercising not only improves your mood, it also makes you more effective in getting your work done. So next time you skip an exercise class because you’re too busy, remember that that one hour of exercise could save you several hours of procrastination at home or in the office.

Make a Change
If you think you’ve tried everything and you’re still not any closer to your goals, then maybe its time to look around you and pinpoint what is preventing you. Perhaps it’s a person in your life, or your location. If you really want to reach your goals, then perhaps its time you started making some big changes that will set your potential free.

Do it Now
 When you keep putting things off because you feel tired, want to socialize, or feel like you have plenty of time to do it later, you’ll eventually find yourself overstressed and in a slump. Don’t fall into that trap – recognize the activities you do to procrastinate, and nip it in the bud. Take action right away, no matter how small the victory, and use that momentum for further tasks.

Grow from your Problems
Times of great difficulty are times of great opportunity.  These times may not seem ideal at first, but they usually provide keen insight into ideas of great value.  When you are surrounded by problems, you are simultaneously given an opportunity to provide valuable solutions.
When times are good and everything is comfortably in order, it’s easy to become complacent and forget how skillful and resourceful you are capable of being.  Troubled times are necessary evils that push you forward, because they eventually end, and the lessons and strengths you gain from them last a lifetime.
