You might struggle to keep motivated during 2021. Months have flown by and here we are in November 2021. Just a little longer and we can leave behind another year full of memories, ups and downs, love and more. It may seem hard not to be nostalgic or on the contrary, you can’t wait for a new beginning.
So the question is: How do you stay motivated for the remaining months? Well, the answer you’re seeking hides in this article.
Read on to learn how to get through the season of change with flying colours. Are you ready?
One of the main things that will help you stay motivated is to think back on your year. Find an area where you did well and remind yourself of every accomplishment you’ve enjoyed. It may sound silly, but it’s very healthy to remember all of your successes. That way, you don’t need other people to tell you: “you can do it”. After all, you have living proof. Your results are the best example that can prove to you that you are really good.
So, sit down and get ready to take a look back at 2021. Imagine all the things you have achieved. Nothing else is going to give you a bigger boost of confidence and perseverance. Don’t you believe me?! Well, it’s up to you to try it and let me know afterwards 😉
Get your motivation from other places
If you feel you can’t motivate yourself now, try looking for motivation in other places. For example in books, films, documentaries. Often, when people see a film where the main character is persistent and works very hard to achieve their dream, they tend to get a boost of ambition in return.
It’s normal not to feel like yourself all the time. Besides, 2021 was not an easy year at all. So it’s a great idea to find your motivation to finish it strong. I recommend you to take some time for yourself, try not to stress for a few days and focus your attention on finding or maintaining your motivation. Look for a good film or read a great book and learn from the experiences of characters.
Review your goals regularly
As you know, ambition comes and goes. That’s why it’s recommended to make a planner where you write down all your goals. A good exercise is to review them regularly so that you can remember what you are actually working towards. You need to remember how many steps you have taken so far. Besides, a planner will help you organise your professional life in a constructive way.
I believe that as long as you constantly remember your dream, the motivation will not disappear. Think that in just two months you can reinvent yourself and start a much better year!
Sounds funny, I know. But, one of the best ways that will help you keep motivated during 2021 is to force yourself to smile more. Morning, noon and night. You have to smile. A great exercise is when you walk past mirrors to smile at yourself. Never mind that you might actually want to cry. People can trick their brains into thinking they’re happy if they smile constantly.
Happiness in turn brings a big dose of motivation. That’s why it’s also important to be in a good mental state when you work and seek to achieve your goals. If you ever have difficulty simply pretending, I happen to have an idea that can help you out. Stick a few post-its with encouraging quotes and compliments on your bathroom vanity. That way, every day you’ll start your morning smiling.
Surround yourself with positivity
In order to keep motivated during 2021, you’ll have to surround yourself with positivity. Thus, you have to cut off all people who bring malice and negativity into your life. You have to put yourself first and realise that the law of attraction is real. Manifest and try to think positively every day.
As long as you continue to believe that everything is possible, no one can stop you. You don’t need people who wish you harm and only want to demoralise you. What you have to do is to stay close to the people you love and who love you back.
All things considered, it’s not that hard to keep motivated during 2021, right? It’s time to improve your life and to step up your game.
Therefore, if you want to see change in your life, it’s about time to surround yourself with positivity, to read motivational stories, to review your goals and even to force yourself smile.
