Feeling lazy or unenthusiastic to pursue your goals? Then you might need some motivational ideas!
Most of the people used to set a resolution in January and tend to forget it by June. Are you one of them? 🙂
This often happens when we’re too busy with our work, life, unexpected events… and in the end, we lose the passion to attain our goals.
As Tommy Lasorda said: “The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in determination.”
So come on! It’s time to pick yourself up, work hard, be persistent and make the dream come true! Here are some motivational ideas for you:
Don’t keep the goal in your mind only. Write down your aim clearly and set an achievable deadline. Then paste it at an obvious place. It can create the motivation and sense of urgency for you to strive for your goal.
Motivate yourself by adding the quotes that inspired you in your daily planner, smart phone or PC. Below are some motivational quotes on pursuing your goals:
- You can’t just sit there and wait for people to give you that golden dream. You’ve got to get out there and make it happen for yourself. (Diana Ross)
- Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’! (Audrey Hepburn)
- You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great. (Zig Ziglar)
- Persist and persevere, and you will find most things that are attainable, possible. (Lord Chesterfield)
- A quitter never wins – and – a winner never quits. (Napoleon Hill)
This does not limit to self help articles, motivational stories or other people’s success experience. You can even read your children’s story book! As long as it inspires you, why not? Let the wisdom enlightens you when you’re feeling unmotivated.

Tune into your favorite songs, the songs that will make you feel happy and energetic! Download the motivational songs and play them regularly. Sing along! Let the positive lyrics and messages encourage you all the time.
Remember the carrot and stick game? Set both the reward and punishment for yourself. When you reach a milestone, pamper yourself with a gift. On the other hand, if you fail to push yourself to work for your goal, punishment time = Double your hard work!
Assume that you have met your goal and obtain the things that you want. Ah… Isn’t it wonderful? For instance, picture the slim you or visualize you staying in your dream house. The more you imagine, the happier you are and the higher your spirit to pursue the goal. Try it!
Is there anyone that has achieved the dream that is similar to yours? Take him as a role model. Learn his attitudes, strategies and values that help him succeeded. Believe that if he can do it, you can too!
I know nothing about the mysterious charm. The hypnotize I mean here is to tell yourself every day: “I can do it! I definitely can!!” Keep boosting your confidence and motivation by applying this small step and see the magic appears.
Is leaving your comfort zone makes you discouraged to move forward? Rewrite your goals and the reasons that you want to achieve it. Write it on a paper for at least 10 times. Keep in mind that this is the challenge that you have to take to fulfill your goal. So, step out with courage!
Tell your friends and families about your goal. I’m sure they will support you generously in each and every way. Another benefit is that they can keep an eye on you in case you tend to be lazy, ha 😀

Join the online group or forum which shares the same goal with you. Members with the same interest and target can easily understand and get along with each other. Share the ups and downs, encourage each other and pursue the dream together.
Your daily effort of achieving your goal does not have to be dull and boring. Try changing the venue of your routine. For example, if you jog to lose weight, try to jog at another park. If you are building your website, bring your laptop to a nice coffee shop instead of working at home. A change of place will uplift your mood and interest to carry out your routine.
Although having motivation is important, but being physically fit and healthy is also vital for you. Take nutritious food, get enough of sleep, exercise and stay in a good mood. All these steps will help you to gain the power and energy to pursue your goal.
17.Never give up
It’s easy to fall into the trap of ‘quitting’ when we face some obstacles. Instead of striving more aggressively, try to take a break. Do the things that you enjoy: sing, shopping, watch comedy etc. Release the disappointment first, and then lift yourself up. Treat failure as a stepping stone to success.
When people critic that you can’t do it, stay focus on what you’re trying to achieve. Remember that this is your dream, not theirs. You can make a sign stating: “Nothing can stop me! I’m possible!” Clip it on your memo stand. Remind yourself not to give in or give up.
Have you ever gone up a hill and shout out your goal as loud as you can? We often see this in the movie only right? So next time when you are having some self doubt or discouragement, try this and you may experience a boost of motivation!
There you are. I hope these motivational ideas will ignite your fighting spirit to strive until your goal turns to reality!
