Let’s face it… No matter how you set your intentions to move forward, there will be times when difficult days will find its ways to you. To pretend that challenges or difficulties don’t occur is unrealistic.
This is the time of year that most people break out of the gate running with a long list of goals. However many people, (sad to say) don’t last through the first month of the year.
What so many people ending up doing is getting the same repeat of last year and the year before that and the year before that. If you don’t have some safeguards in place you will inevitably revert back to old habits and patterns. (I know you have had enough of that!)
So, how do you stay motivated during difficult times? I have 3 simple steps to follow to keep you motivated and on track:
Step #1: Immediately tap into a spirit of gratitude or appreciate
It is imperative to immediately shift the focus from one of trouble to one of gratitude. Gratitude or appreciation will activate your spirit and you can be lead by your higher spiritual self through the trouble.
Step #1: Look at the challenge without attaching emotional baggage
Look at each situation clearly and evaluate it without attaching any emotional baggage to the situation, i.e.:
- This always happens
- Somebody is working against me
- I will never be able to get out of this…
- Woe it’s me…
- Breaking down and crying in self-pity
Look at the situation for what it is –period. Them implement the 3 A’s
- Ask the question, Why is this here? What is being shown to me?
- Assess the answer you get, ask for guidance.
- Action, you must take appropriate action.
Step #3: Remember why you are on the path you are on. What the “Big Why” behind the goals you have set.
This is a vital key to staying motivated. When you remember the big why behind what you are doing, you will tap into the energy of your call or mission. Each and every one of us should be moving in purpose on purpose (One of my Elona-ism)
Remember the people you are here to serve, touch, teach, train, help, etc. Be certain of your mission and the divine support you have. You are now open to move forward and handle the challenge and stay motivated.
What you are called to do is much greater than the present difficulty…
