How do you stay motivated and inspired? How can you keep your passion, your excitement, fired up? Here are a few ways you or a peer can stay motivated.

Get serious
Make a decision to go all the way to the top. Up to now, you’ve thought about it. Up to now, it’s passed your mind. But now make up your mind to go all the way to the top, and your life will take off. It’s the most extraordinary thing.

  Know your limiting step

What’s your limiting step? What’s the one skill area that’s holding you back? What’s the quality? What’s the action? Ask other people. Find out what you need to become good at. Find out what’s keeping you repeating your old habits.

   Get around the right people

Who are the right people? Winners. Get around positive people. Get around people with goals and plans, people who are going somewhere with their lives and have high aspirations. Get around eagles.

And get away from negative people. Get away from toxic people that complain and whine and moan all the time. Who needs them? Life is too short.

    Picture yourself as the best

Visualize yourself as the very best in whatever you do. Remember, all improvement in your life begins with an improvement in your mental pictures.

    Have positive talk with yourself

Control your inner dialogue and practice positive self-talk. How? Say, “I’m the best.” Say it. Say, “I like myself,” “I can do it,” “I love my work.” If you say those things to yourself and you don’t believe them, isn’t that lying to yourself?

Talk to yourself the way you want to be, not the way you just happen to be at this moment. Remember, you may have gotten where you are today largely by accident. But where you’re going in the future is purely by design.

     Keep yourself healthy

Take excellent care of your health. That means good diet, good exercise. Everybody knows they should eat better foods, work out regularly and get lots of rest. If you’re going to work hard five days a week, go to bed early five days a week.
