How to Stay Motivated

Samantha Peynado, Staff Writer

If you want something for yourself, you are the only person responsible to go get it. You are in charge of your future. You shouldn’t wait for it to be handed to you. Here are a few motivational steps to help achieve what you want in life:


Step 1: Write Down your Goals

Establish the goal. You’re going to forget! Write it down somewhere you will see constantly. Writing it down gives you a visual. Drawing your goals also help. Evaluate the goal. Make sure it is realistic to you.


Step 2: Focus on your Goal

Remind yourself of the goal you have set in place. This pushes you to achieve it. What are you doing to achieve this goal? If you are unable to answer this question, you aren’t doing it right. If you find yourself losing sight of the goal, reevaluate. Remember why you need to achieve this goal. Being able to visualize yourself achieving what you want, raises the possibility of you achieving what your goal.


Step 3: Commit to your goals

A healthy, positive mindset will get you positivity. These steps may seem easy enough, but you may find sticking to them difficult. Believe in yourself. Even if no one else will. You are in charge of achieving your goal.


Step 4: Keep Away from Negative Vibes

Try not to procrastinate. Find friends and family who push you to continue onto the path of achieving. “Friends” who tell you they can’t see your goal happening are being negative. You don’t need that. Stay positive. If you are in an environment where you find yourself delaying the goal, change your scenery.
