Even More Ways to Keep Motivated!
Visuals and Visualizing Your Goals
This tip is going to be broken down into two parts. First, visuals. Visuals means writing down your goals and what you want to accomplish. It can be in pictures, post-it notes, or big words on a calendar. The key is to keep visuals in a place where you are most likely to see them constantly throughout your day. These visuals will serve as a constant reminder of what you're shooting for.
Secondly, you have to visualize your goal. In part one we talked about staying positive and having the right idea. Visualizing is the next step in that process. Negative thinking will only bring you down, which will demotivate you. Visualizing success is something that has been proven to be a helpful tool. Even professional athletes use positive visualization as a motivator.
Celebrating the Little Things - Break Your Goals Up
Do you have big goals? I'd say that staying sober is a pretty big one. Regardless of your situation, we know you have dreams and aspirations. When you have big goals, break them up into smaller ones. This will make your life easier and more manageable. Furthermore, when you have several smaller goals, you can get quicker feelings of success, which is a motivator.
You should also celebrate hitting these smaller goals. This is called a reward. Everyone loves getting rewarded for a job well done, and there is nothing wrong with using this trick to keep you motivated.
In closing, just know that if you ever find yourself falling behind, or not wanting to continue on, you can always refer back to our blog for that extra motivation and the inspiration you're longing for. If times get too tough, please call our helpful staff for help immediately. We're always here to listen.
