Firstly, rest assured that everyone has bad days, but while your motivation fluctuates your commitment to your goals should stay constant.  

Try these 10 tips to regain your motivational mojo:

1. Have a ‘high definition’ vision of what you want to achieve – clarity of what success will look like helps you to say NO to distractions.

2. Break down your goal into short term targets, HUGE challenges create paralysis but small steps create momentum.

3. Look back at how far you have come, take a moment to see your progress to this point.

4. Create your own dream team by surround yourself with positive, driven and helpful people who will support and challenge you to get to your goals. Don’t be shy, they will enjoy helping you but don’t just pick mates who will support your excuses.

5. Think abundance, if you believe opportunities are scarce, you will become desperate and selfish which will isolate you and won’t deliver your goals.

6. Get some perspective - there will always be people in a worse situation, it’s how you move forward that counts. You always learn most about people in adversity.

7. Remember WHY you started…… reconnect to your purpose whether it’s entertaining a crowd, helping others or providing for your family.

8. Don’t be afraid of failing, making mistakes is part of learning, just fail small, fail fast and fail towards your goal.

9. Focus on maximising your strengths, they energise you and will deliver huge returns.

10. Speak to yourself like a friend rather than having a destructive bully in your head telling you that you can’t do it - that voice is trying to keep you safe - and safe means no fun!

Reading blogs and articles is great for inspiration but you will only feel satisfied when you start to take action…
