I have been staring at my computer screen for hours now, and I can’t seem to think of anything I want to say. Oh, how I hate writer’s block. I desperately need a dose of creativity, inspiration, and motivation. So I thought, why not write a post about that! So today, I am going to be sharing eight tips on how to stay motivated even when it’s tough.
But first, let’s talk about these photos Taylor Mickal delivered. Again, he captured such stunning shots. This was right before entering the “snake infested” water for these shots. 😉 I am truly a HUGE fan of his talent, work, and art. To book a shoot with Taylor Mickal Photography click here.
Tips On Staying Motivated
Remember your why – we all have a reason why we do what we do, and why we chose it, and why we love it. What is yours? Sometimes going back to this question can help you make the next move.
Remind yourself of your goals and aspirations – Set short-term and long-term goals and do everything in your power to reach for them. I wouldn’t get anything accomplished if I didn’t set goals.
Go back to your roots – For me, going back to where I started and knowing my ‘why’, helps me put things in better perspective and to not fall too far from where my original vision was.
Commit to yourself – We all need accountability and making a commitment to yourself is the best way to keep pressing on.
Encourage yourself – Don’t be too hard on yourself. Words can either tear down or build up. Speak life into your work, your dream, your purpose.
Take a short break – Stepping back and taking a breath can do wonders. Resting your mind and body can energize your sense of ability and creativity.
Celebrate your accomplishments – Look at where you are today and all that you have accomplished and be PROUD. You, my dear, have already achieved so much. Reminisce and make that your motivation to keep moving.
Don’t ever give up – That dream, that passion deep inside you is there for a reason. Act upon it.
