So you want to do something you don’t like or you don’t want to do,And you just can’t find the motivation or willpower to do it,I have a few steps that will help motivate you to do the thing you don’t like,For example let’ say you want to start going to the gym.
First you want to set a goal,For example say to yourself: For the next 3 months I am going to go to the gym 3 times every week.Make sure the goal is reachable,Don’t set something as a goal that you can’t do,After you set your goal let’s move on to the next step.
Now that you set your reachable goal you should also have some sort of a reward,Find something you really want,Let’s say you always wanted to go to Paris or you want a new phone,It doesn’t have to be expensive,Just something you really want,And then say:If I go to the gym 3 times every week for the next three months I will buy myself a new phone(Change that out with your goal and your reward).
Now you have a goal and a reason to go chase that goal(the reward)The next step is the most important one,TAKE ACTION,Sitting on your couch and thinking about how great would it be for you to do this isn’t going to do anything,This step is the hardest,But you need to take action!Once you,For example,Go to the gym once it’s easier to get yourself to do it again.
The next step is tracking your progress,This step is optional but it motivates you a little bit more,Tracking your progress is very easy,at the end of every week or month,See if you completed the task or whatever you wanted to do,It will just add a little bit of satisfaction at the end of the week or month when you see all the progress you made,And it will motivate you just a little bit more.
The last step is rewarding yourself,This step comes after you finished your goal,Reward yourself with the reward you promised.This is alo important,Don’t lie to yourself!Give yourself a reward,You deserve it
After you finished all the steps you should feel great,You finished the goal you wanted,You got a reward,It’s a great feeling
There is an another step you can add,But it depends on you,You can add a punishment for yourself,For example if you didn’t finish the goal,You need to do something you really hate,It’s important that you punish yourself only if you failed because you didn’t do the task,You shouldn’t punish yourself because of other things happening,For example don’t punish yourself because you couldn’t go to the gym because the corona virus is here and you are quarantined,But you should punish yourself if you were too lazy to go to the gym
So let’s recap,Set a reachable goal,Set a reward(something you really want),Take action(the hardest but the most important step),Track your progress and finally reward yourself (or punish yourself if you didn’t complete the task)
That’s it,Hope this helped and that you are doing the thing you don’t like,It’s going to be hard but at the end it will be worth it,Good luck!Join Our Discord Server
