20 Science-Backed Ways to Stay Motivated (Infographic)

Motivation is something we all strive for, but can also be one of those feelings that is hard to keep. Whether we are trying to reach a new fitness goal or trying to stay motivated by our role in work, sometimes this motivation simply does not happen. You feel inspired for a while – you’ll listen to podcasts, read books, hold yourself accountable – but then it’s lost. You feel so much energy in the beginning, then feel yourself slowly losing that motivation. Don’t worry, you are not alone.

The key to success is the constant motivation to achieve and continue with your goals. Discovering that works for you to keep that job for the long term, not just for the short term. The reason why people set goals and fail is because they are too hard on themselves. They set unrealistic and unachievable goals, making them difficult to achieve.

The thing about motivation is that it is not difficult. The good news is, you can always get it back. The goal is to develop the right attitude and mindset that can help you long term. If you want to stay motivated, you need to do your search. You need to find out what it is that is going to get you closer to reaching your goals. Do not focus too much on what you want to achieve, but more than how you want to feel it.
