    7 Tips For Lasting Motivation And Greater Success
    Copyright © 2004, Peter Murphy

    Lasting motivation is possible once you adopt an outlook
    that allows you to be more successful. Here are seven tips
    you can use today to overcome procrastination and start
    achieving much more.
    1. Success is not achieved accidentally. It is a
    systematic, deliberate process of deciding what you want to
    do with your life, what you will do when you get there, and
    what the steps are to get you where you want to be.
    One of the most important aspects of success is the ability
    to visualize your path and stay focused on your goal until
    you reach it.
    2. The sooner you envision your dreams and develop a plan
    to turn them into reality, the faster you will accomplish
    your goals.
    Mental pictures are a mechanism to lead you down the path
    of true independence and motivation. Procrastination is a
    self-defeating behavior that develops in part due to low
    self-esteem and fear of failure.
    Your imagination is like a preview of your future. If you
    don't use your imagination your life will remain mundane
    and unfulfilling.
    3. Overcoming procrastination is the first step in helping
    you create the lifestyle you desire. You must change the
    habits and behaviors that led you to procrastinate in the
    first place.
    Change is a slow process so be sure to reward yourself
    along the way for small achievements. Instead of focusing
    on the difficulty of a large task, break it into smaller
    jobs and create a timeline for finishing them.
    4. Several small jobs done over time are much more
    manageable that one large task with no end in sight. You'll
    be astonished at how much you can get done if you
    concentrate on one thing at a time instead of cluttering
    your mind with multiple tasks.
    Try tackling the more undesirable tasks early in the day so
    that by afternoon you can pursue more pleasant activities.
    5. Relieve yourself of the pressure created by clutter in
    your office or home. Develop a filing system, rid yourself
    of unnecessary papers, and give yourself an organized place
    to work.
    When you exercise self-discipline in your surroundings as
    well as your behaviors, you will make major strides in
    accomplishing your goals in a shorter period of time. No
    matter what is happening around you, keep your mind focused
    on the reward you'll receive by reaching your goals.
    6. If people or outside forces distract you, use the power
    of the human mind to block out what impedes your progress
    and concentrate solely on the task at hand. You will make
    remarkable progress by refusing to let others alter the
    path you have chosen.
    Overcoming procrastination and staying motivated is the way
    to lifetime success and happiness. You'll achieve your
    goals rapidly when you stay focused on your destination and
    the rewards that will follow.
    7. Review your habits and way of thinking to determine what
    you are visualizing most of the time. If your visions do
    not lead you in the direction of accomplishing your goals,
    then you must change them.
    Discipline yourself to concentrate on your goals the
    majority of the time, and if you stray from the path, get
    promptly back on.
    Imagine what the rewards will be when you finally reach
    your destination and keep that thought foremost in your
    Procrastination is of no use to you in your quest to
    fulfill your dreams. Lose those old habits and replace them
    with habits that lead to self-motivation and control over
    your life.
    Remember this. You can sustain lasting motivation over time
    once you discover the motivation strategies that are right
    for you.
