Creating a vision (board)
While you might not want to cut-out pictures to create a collage on your bedroom wall, it isn’t that hard to make a PowerPoint presentation or some kind of vision board on your computer to allow yourself to remain motivated. It will continue to provide motivation on the days you feel down and look at it. We all need a little push to remind us why we continue to work hard and what we want in our lives.
Don’t dismiss friends trying to help
It is always a good thing to involve your family members and friends to know what you are working towards. They might be able to provide extra motivation and cheering as you work towards your goals. At the same time, be considerate if they ask for updates. They want to know and you should be honest if you aren’t hitting your steps in the time you expected. You will need their support in those times and they can’t give it to you if they don’t know how you’re doing with your goals.
