Motivation is essential to be happy and successful. Following tips will help you to motivate yourself and to maintain this situation. These are practical and result oriented advices. If you do not put into practice, they will only stay as general knowledge.
1. WRITE YOUR STORY
Write your desired future’s story on a paper in two paragraphs. Write what you do, where you live and what you have in future. This will motivate you for now and future.
2. VISUALIZE THE FUTURE
Close your eyes and visualize you as what you want to do in future. Running healthfully, growing your flowers in your garden or working. For example, if your dream is to set up a little shop, imagine yourself when greeting your customers or employees in your opening day. In this way, you can embody your dreams.
3. VISUALIZE THE PAST
When you visualize the past, you can see where were you before and how far you go. You can understand how much of your planned goals you achieved and where you made mistake. This will help you to walk in the right direction. Think about a driver, only if he looks ahead and does not use rearview mirror, what happens to him. Looking past is at least as helpful as driver’s using rearview mirror.
4. THINK BIG
Do not be afraid of thinking big on your future. This will help you to bear up your short time failures. Obstacles can not stop you. Because your eyes stay focused on your big goal. Think that you will reunite with you beloved. Does the drenching rain bother you if you goes to welcome him/her at train station?
5. EDUCATE YOURSELF
Learn, read, talk, listen and try everything about your goal or dream. If you want to be an author, take lessons, read books, write, talk to other authors, attend workshops.
6. BE ORGANIZED
Clean, tidy and well organized home, office or life is essential for motivated mind. Physical disorganization leads to mental disorganization. Have an organized life, so you feel yourself more energetic every day. For example, your time for sleeping and waking should be organized. You should have breakfast and walk for half an hour in the morning.
7. GIVE PLACE TO MOTIVATORS IN YOUR HOME AND OFFICE
Give place to symbols, marks, notes or objects that will remember your goals and dreams to you at home, in your office, car, wallet. These memorials will be the guarantee of continuance of your motivation.
Do you want to have a top model car? Then, hang the pictures of your dream car on the wall or put them in your wallet and look at them and remember your goal when you need.

Best learning method is to teach. Help your children to be motivated, your friends to set more effective goals, your partner to achieve his/her personal goals. When you help them, you will help yourself in fact.
10. SPEND TIME WITH CHILDREN
Spending time with children will bring you perspective. Your problems or worries about your work or private life disappear when you play with your children. Children look at everything in a simple way and even learning this is a profit for us.
