How to Self-Motivate Yourself to Achieve ANY Goals in Life

We can spend up to half of our working day going through our email inbox, making to-do lists, feeling frustrated and unproductive.

Self Motivation is the Key

A key part to achieving anything in life is building a self-motivation AND the only thing, which contributes to achieving your goals is the self motivation.

Self motivation is the first stepping stone to achieving any goal in life. In order to build the self motivation, we first need to consider how big and significant our goal is.

The goal has to be big and powerful enough to create self-assurance and self-confidence to go after it and smash every bit of the success out of it!

If you have a clear vision about where you are heading. The process itself will motivate you to stay consistent and fulfill your desired vision.

Once you have established that the goal is clear and achievable. It is important to be aware of any set backs you may encounter through the process.

Therefore, being resilient, believing in yourself and in your qualities and positive self talking often to yourself that;

“This one hurdle is not going to stop me from achieving my goals and dreams.”

When planning to achieve a specific goal, consider the following 5 steps:

1. How specific is my goal? Did I consider even the smaller steps?

As taking every tiny detail into consideration will enable to plan the process at every small step, which consequently will help you get closer to your goals and dreams.

2. How important is it?

Your goal has to be bigger than yourself in some cases to create that burning desire which will enable to move forward leaps and bounds. Remember to make it fun and interesting as this will help you keep going.

3. How committed are you?

You need to be very honest with yourself and giving yourself a regular feedback will help you analyse the situation and modify the process if needed.

4. How practical is it to achieve this?

Always be aware of the complexity of it – break down the process even further if required. Remember the smaller the steps the more likely they are achievable, rather than bombarding yourself with a massive chunk of work and get bog down with it.

5. What is the time limit of achieving it?

As you plan the process, it is useful to set time limit to each step and set a deadline for the over all achievements. Go with your intuition but remember to make it exciting. You can even visualise your outcome of how you would feel and how your life would be like once you have achieved this goal!

Urgent/important Matrix tool

When planning for the process, it may be useful to use tools like urgent/important matrix to help you plan even further by prioritising your tasks.

The urgent/important matrix will enable you to see the bigger picture of your overall objectives. It’s totally your choice if you want to hand write it or do it digitally.

One of the benefits of this matrix is that it enable you to focus on a single step at a time. This helps reduce stress and anxiety and enables you to focus on the most important objective at a time.

The urgent/important matrix will also help you to see if you need to outsource any of the tasks.

I hope this post has opened your eyes to your true potential
– GET SELF-MOTIVATING 🙂

Best Method to Clean Your House

You will never feel cleaning your house is a massive chore if you follow my tip below. This is my own tried and tested method. It works superbly and makes me feel great as I always come into our home knowing and feeling it is always clean.

Can you spare just 15 minutes a day? If YES, then you will love this tip.

The 15 Minutes Method

If you just allocate 15 minutes per day to clean or tidy ONLY one area of your home, (minus cleaning after using an area), your home will always be sparkling and spotless.

The 15 minutes becomes an enjoyable task because you will know it’s not going to take you very long, but one part of your home will be sparkling.

If the method is applied as I’m suggesting then on a weekly basis (7 days) 7 parts or areas of your home will be looking dashing. It will not tire or bore you – actually it gets enjoyable 🙂

If you have kids or pets, you may need to clean the area they’ve used or been into, but that shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes a day. Happy sparkling.

Please feel free to ask any further questions or comments in the comments section below. HAPPY ENJOYABLE CLEANING

How to Maximise the Benefits of Eating Fruits?

We are brought up to….?

Most of us have been brought up eating fruits AFTER a meal.

The question is….is that a Good habit or a Bad habit?

What happens if you eat fruit after your meal?

If you eat fruits AFTER your meal then it is not only toxic and bad for your health but you are also wasting the valuable nutrients the fruits have to offer.

If you eat fruits after meal on a full stomach, the fruits tend to digest quicker and therefore pushes down rest of the food, which is not ready to digest yet!

As a result of that all the food tend to rotten and create a very toxic stomach!

When should we eat our fruits?

So the best time to eat fruits is BEFORE a meal on an empty stomach to maximise the nutrition and antioxidant properties. This will allow the fruit to digest quickly before putting your meal in your stomach.

Hence, enabling the fruit and your meal to digest in a systematic order and getting the full benefits from your fruits and then your meal, without the risk of any toxic activity taking place.

Give us your thoughts, comments or any questions you may have in the comments section below.

Take care of your precious stomach, WE do 🙂

What to do When You Have Dry, Chopped and Tingling Lips

What to do when you have dry, chopped and tingling lips that you can’t stop licking.

I experienced this very same scenario a couple of years ago. I tried many things that I knew and researched about it, but nothing worked.

I got to a point when my lips were so sore and I was finding it difficult to talk!

Got NO Help!

My GP was not recommending me anything effective so I had to go to Accident and emergency! No serious treatment was given there either as I expected.

Found the Solution by CHANCE

I was fed up and popped into my local ‘The Body Shop’ and asked the shop assistant for some advice. She kindly showed me some lip butter. I picked one up and bought it, but I was thinking it might be same as the rest of the treatments I had.

I took the lip butter home and put it on my lips. Straightaway I started to feel the tight and tingling sensation from my lips were slowly fading away.

I felt good!

So I applied the lip butter again at night time before bedtime. What a relief it was in the morning. I felt my usual self was back. I was in a good mood after a long time.

If you want to try using the same lip butter as i did, then click on the picture below or click here.

I highly recommend if you have a similar situation with you and nothing seems to be working, then try this as you might be surprised as I was. It was a “lip saver for me”.

If you have any questions or comments, please leave them in the comments section below. All the best to your lips 🙂

What to do when someone stammers?

Reasons why someone stammers:

There are many reasons why someone stammers, stutters or is dysfluent. The situation may arise when the environment is noisy, busy, frightening, exciting, tiring, competitive, there may be interruptions and lots of talking, as well when the child is just learning the language and they have so much to say.

What sort of speaking situations can lead to more dysfluency?

  • Speaking to adults who talk very quickly.
  • Speaking while having to look high up to see the listener’s face.
  • Speaking when you think you will be interrupted.
  • Speaking to someone who is not really listening.
  • Speaking when you fear the consequences of what you say.
  • Speaking when you do not want to or when you have nothing to say.
  • Speaking when very tired, upset, or feeling unwell.
  • Speaking in a rush when you have a lot to say or a complex idea to express.

It can be difficult to offer support to others when we are anxious ourselves.

However, if a child stammers, trying to take the child’s view changes our focus and makes helping possible. Then we can do those things that make the child feel loved and wanted as well as all the little things that help in particular situations, for example:

  • Listening attentively
  • Responding kindly and uncritically.
  • Offering physical support when needed
  • Helping the child to feel safe.
  • Being encouraging.
  • Helping others understand our child.

We hope this post is a big help for you. Let us know in the comments section below how it has helped you or your child. Or if you have any questions or comments.

The 5 second rule TIP

Give yourself the 5-second rule…

Before responding to someone in either a positive or negative way, give yourself the 5-second rule by:

Counting up to 5 seconds in your head

By doing so, you will be able to gather your thoughts, words and actions and respond in a way you would like to respond, rather than giving your emotional reaction immediately, and consequently regretting it, as this response wasn’t up to your standards.

You will end up being SORRY and beating yourself up about it, which is not good for your self-esteem.

 

 

 

Think about it….

What To Do If a Loved One Upsets you

If a loved one upsets you, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO NOT react in a negative way because it will make the situation worse. Instead TRY MY TIP below:

The minute you get upset with someone:

  • Start thinking of 5 things that you love about them

  • Or 5 things that they do to you and you love them for it and you are grateful

 

Your negative emotions will immediately start to deflate and you will start to look at the bigger picture rather than something they did and didn’t mean to upset you.

Your loved ones never really mean to upset you!

Let us know if it worked for you as well.

Good luck.

How to Manage My Time Well

How to overcome the overwhelming feeling – MANAGE YOUR TIME WELL!

Reduce your anxiety immediately by this simple and effective formula below.

My Own Formula

If you have a lot going on in your life and managing your chores is something that makes you anxious then here is the simple, but tried and tested idea:

  • Write down all the jobs you have to do in the day on a piece of paper.
  • Then next to each job write down roughly how long it will take you to complete the job and be realistic about it
  • Also don’t cram things in unnecessarily as this will make you even more on the edge!
  • Just prioritise the tasks based on the time you have in the day and leave the rest for the next day and so on.

Hope this helps you the way it has been helping me. Since I’ve been following these steps it has made a massive difference to my life, and now I have more time to do things I couldn’t fit in my daily routine.

All the best,
