We’ve all been through the same thing. You set a goal for yourself and after a few weeks with your new routine, the shine begins to wear off and it becomes harder and harder to climb that steep hill that would lead us towards our goals.
But it is important to remember that you are not alone, but there have been very successful people like Oprah Winfrey, Michael Phelps, Winston Churchill and many others who have experienced everything you are facing right now. All you need to do is look for inspiration that motivates you to keep fighting for your minds.
Where to look for inspiration?
You can look for inspiration on the Internet, in real-life experience, or simply by reading. Everyone has various ways of finding inspiration and what works for one person may not work for another. Fear can hinder our motivation and inspiration.
But sometimes when we least expect it, inspiration can come to us. Other times we have to let go of our limiting beliefs and really see that we can achieve anything we set out to do.
What can help inspire or motivate you?
- Meditate (guided if you are new to this).
- Read inspirational or motivational phrases .
- Listening to motivational music.
Don’t feel overwhelmed and don’t throw in the towel. I have compiled a collection of the best inspirational phrases so you can get the motivation you need to continue on the path towards your goals.
