Great tips Michelle! Helpful motivational post, especially for a cold, dreary Monday! One additional step that I take is to break my goals into quarters, 3 month sections. Thanks for the encouragement. I feel you have to be somewhat obsessive in order to achieve goals. Always have them in mind, and every day do 1 action item towards completing each goal.
Good Advice Michelle. I like to write down my goals and keep them up where I can see them, it helps me keep track of the progress I make and it keeps me motivated. When I lose track of my goals, I write them down on an index card and tape them to my bathroom mirror, that way they are looking back at me everyday.
Yes, when something shifts to becoming a passion, it is much easier. That is awesome that you have a passion! I think reminding yourself of your goals is important. Writing down my goals has been the ultimate step in getting things done and staying on track. Great tips!
How To Stay Motivated And Accomplish Anything
Setting a goal and creating smaller goals to achieve that bigger goal helps me. Writing down the goal is also great advice. Thanks for sharing! These are some great things to keep in mind. I got the flu the entire last week of January and completely fell off the wagon with all of my goals.

One of my current goals is to eliminate one of my bills within the next month. I stay motivated because I realize that once I pay it off it will be one less bill I will have to worry about. I think your point 2 is my favourite.

These are some wonderful ways to keep motivated! I especially like 4! My goal always seems to be to lose weight and I often find that I set such an unrealistic goal, I fail. So instead of saying my goal is to lose 30 pounds, I set my goal at 5 pounds and when I reach that goal, set another goal for another 5 pounds. Sometimes I just set my goal to successfully stay on a healthy eating plan day by day! I just have to keep going. I find that creating a plan to tackle my goals is definitely the best way for me to be successful.
This is great advice! Sometimes it's not so much the what or the how that matters, but your why --the purpose behind what you're doing. Being clear about what you're working for can give you the stimulus to stay on course. Define your goal. Defined goals put your ideas into action mode.

It's the vital step between planning and doing. Create a clear vision. If you want to succeed, you must create a clear compelling vision, something that you can relate to and resonate with.
If it doesn't speak to your heart, it won't motivate you to stay on target. Create the highest grandest vision possible, because you can achieve only what you see.
Produce a plan. Once you have a goal in place, a plan is will take your vision and break down the steps you need to get it done. A goal without a plan, as we know, is just a dream. Look for the bigger picture. When you have to stay motivated, think of the bigger picture.
#1 – Eliminate procrastination
How does this relate not only to yourself but to others? How will it contribute to something important? Where will this make a difference? To accomplish more, think bigger. Keep it positive. Positive thoughts lead to positive actions, and self-affirming statements will help you to achieve your best. Take control of how you think, how you feel, how you act. Positivity will help you make the choices that lead to accomplishment. Approach tasks in new ways.
Sometimes just getting started might be the problem. I am going to college and I will achieve my bachelor's degree.
Sometimes we are lucky enough to have this already built into the goal we are working towards like receiving a medal just for crossing the finish line at a half marathon regardless of your time. That's right -- you don't have to be the fastest runner to receive a medal. You better believe I wanted something to show for that journey of all that hard training and finishing the race itself!
