How to Find Motivation… 10 Steps that I Find Motivating

Motivation is the driving force behind the who, what, when, where, and why we do what we do in any given circumstance.  According to Wikipedia, motivation “gives the reason for people’s actions, desires, and needs. Motivation can also be defined as one’s direction to behavior, or what causes a person to want to repeat a behavior and vice versa.”  Many times, I have asked myself, what is my motivation whenever I am trying something new, would like to accomplish a goal, or wondering why I am even attempting to do something different.

I am sure we all have those moments in time when it is more challenging to find motivation than other times. I have found that the following 10 steps have helped me get motivated and perhaps can help you at some point as well.praying-1713281_640

How to find motivation…

  1. Take a moment to just sit still, relax, and meditate.

  2. Reflect on what you have already accomplished.

  3. Think about what you would like to accomplish next.

  4. Make a list of short-term goals.

  5. Make a list of long-term goals.

  6. Listen to some soft instrumental music, nature sounds, and/or worship songs.

  7. PRAY. 

  8. Read the Bible.

  9. Speak Life, saying what you can and will do.

  10. Repeat as much as necessary.

These are just my personal 10 steps that I find motivating in determining my motivation many times in life.  These 10 steps are suggestive and what has worked for me personally in the past.  I am not a doctor, scientist, theologian, or any type of guru, but I just want to share what helps me in my times of needing to find my motivation. I hope it will help someone else.

My nickname is Dolby... And I am a firm believer in speaking life. “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭18:21‬ ‭ I received the name of Dolby my freshman year of college as a member of the Norfolk State University Dance Theater because sometimes I can be "loud", lol Dolby... Surround Sound! Well, that being said, I've decide to speak on things that interest me and encourage others. I need motivation and inspiration and I like to inspire and motivate others. I am all about maintaining a healthy lifestyle and I would love to share my thoughts with you and for you to do likewise.
