1. Have a Peak Performance Partner
      It’s easier to achieve a goal, if we have a friend who can help motivate us. It’s also easier for a friend to achieve a goal, if we are there to help motivate them.

2. Have a Very Strong Compelling Goal
      Visualizing the beautiful details of a goal can be very inspiring. Great goals produce great motivation. Visualizing intimate details, and experiencing how it would feel to achieve the goals can be immensely satisfying.

3. Hire a Peak Performance Coach
      When we’re accountable only to ourselves, we sometimes "cheat." When an outside person is holding us accountable to reach certain goals, we are many times more motivated to achieve them.

4. Practice Variation
      Routine tasks can lead to boredom and burnout. Tap your creative energies and discover multiple ways to reach your goals.

5. Practice Effective Time Management
      Effective time management strategies go a long way toward reaching goals. Planning and organization of time directs and focuses energies toward desired goals.

6. Imagine, vividly, what your life would be like in the future if you continue in your present rut.
      Visualizing what you don’t want to become can be a powerful motivator for achieving your goals.

7. Force yourself to repeat activities until they become routine.
      Some activities are difficult to begin, due to the awkwardness associated with learning the activity. Repeat them until they become habit, and part of your daily routine.

8. Continually fill yourself with positive/motivational influences.
      Read motivational literature. Visit positive/motivational websites. Subscribe to inspiring ezines.

9. Have a personal mission statement.
      Create a personal mission statement so inspiring that you can't fail to fulfill it. Why are you here?

10. Begin
      "The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." If you don’t take that first step, you are guaranteed not to reach your destination.
