No matter what challenges you’ve set for yourself, whether you’re working towards a lifelong ambition or something smaller, it’s important to recognise and celebrate each step you take towards your goal. Here are three ways to help you stay motivated and on track.
Keep a success journal
Sometimes it’s hard to remember how far you’ve come, especially on bigger projects, and it can seem like there is no end in sight. Keeping a success journal will keep your focus on the present moment and what you have done, instead of what is still left to do – helping you feel more positive and in control. Simply log each accomplishment as you make it, no matter how small it might seem, and you’ll be able to look back and see just how much you’ve achieved.
Acknowledge each win
When working towards your goal, set yourself targets along the way and treat yourself to a reward when you reach each milestone. Even the smallest treat will help acknowledge your success and is a great way to keep you motivated.
Share your success
Once you’ve completed your challenge, remember to celebrate your achievement. Get a few friends together and share your feeling of accomplishment and positivity – who knows, you might help inspire them to persevere and reach their goals too. Plus, it’ll give you something to look forward to as you start on your next project.
