5 habits of highly motivated people.

Motivation is the crucial element to setting and attaining goals. It’s the difference between staying in your comfort zone or running the extra mile (quite literally).

Try to adopt these 5 habits if you wish to improve your levels of motivation:

  • Wake up early:

I usually wake up before 6:00 a.m. This allows me some precious time to focus on myself before anything else. Meditate, relax, write a journal, but make sure to make some time for yourself every day

  • Read/learn often:

Your mind needs books to keep itself sharp. This is also a good way to continue to improve your skills. I, for instance, really enjoy staying inside and doing online courses, but there are many ways to achieve this.

  • Exercise:

This will not only teach you to be disciplined and consistent, but it will also help you feel more confident about yourself, which is very useful in the workplace.

  • Seek a mentor:

This could be someone senior to you inside the company you work for or a career coach. They will help you build your personal brand and teach you how to leverage your strengths, both critical to success in today’s work environment.

  • Volunteer:

Motivated people are so full of positive energy that they want to share it with everyone, and what better way to do this than to volunteer for a cause that resonates with them.
