3 Actions to Keep You Motivated For Your High-Performance Life
Living a high-performance lifestyle is easily achievable when you have the right structures and habits in place. But, because we are human, there’s only so much of the mundane, routine, and day-in-day-out activity we can take before boredom strikes and we lose our drive to make it happen.
Not only does boredom affect your motivation, it also puts a damper on your confidence. “I’m so bored, is this really what I want to do? Can I really handle this?” The self doubt will flood your mind and distract you from the bigger picture.
But you are a LEADER. You get things done. You ADAPT and OVERCOME obstacles, even if that obstacle is your own mindset and environment. Here are 3 activities that are fun enough to keep you motivated and out of that rut.
So cliche, right? Wrong! Dancing has been linked to improving overall mood, giving your brain a much needed boost. The movement requires cognitive coordination and function so it’s a great way to get yourself out of dull, low-energy moods. All you have to do is put on your favorite tunes and boot-scoot-boogy your way into an elevated, high-performance mindset.
2. Reward Yourself
Rewarding yourself for reaching goals and accomplishing tasks is a sure way to keep you motivated. Remember that YouTube video you wanted to watch as a distraction from your mundane tasks? Turn it into a reward! How quickly can you get the job done so you can finally watch the video that will teach you how balloons are made? Set a goal, make up a reward, and DO IT!
