Keeping yourself motivated in leadership should not be something that you only do when the Spirit moves you. It is something that should be an ongoing process that includes every facet of your life: your mental attitude, physical well-being and appearance, work atmosphere, and your relationships with others.

Experts are paid big money to tell professionals striving for success that they must constantly examine these factors. How do you do that? Use the following 5 tips and watch your life begin to change for the better.

Keep a Positive Attitude – Life is only 10% of what happens to us and 90% on how we choose to react. No one is responsible for your actions or attitude but you, so you must be willing to change them when necessary. And when you are around positive people who are uplifting, you will start to feel the same way. You will start to have more confidence within yourself and begin to walk with a little swag. This type of confidence will also make it easier to change the things that need to be changed and you will begin to draw more positive people to you.
Let Go of Past Troubles – Everyone has problems that they face. It is a part of life. However it does not have to consume your life. Turn your attention and energy entirely to the goals that you have set for yourself. By focusing your attention to something positive, you allow yourself to see a brighter future in troubling times, and it also gives your mind the mental break that it needs to handle the problems that you may face.
Positive Affirmations – “Death and Life are in the power of the tongue.” (Proverbs 18:21). It is important to speak positively over your life. What your eyes see and ears hear you will start to believe. Just try it! Take some time to write down the things you would like to accomplish, no matter how big or small. Donald Trump said it best with his book title, “Why think small, when you can think big.” Do not allow your current circumstances to effect the way you think about your goals. After they have been written down, read them aloud every morning when you are ready to start your day. You’ll be amazed at what happens! As you start to accomplish your goals, mark them off and add new ones. Repeating them out loud everyday at a set time will reinforce positive actions.
Take A Break and Have some Fun – All work and no play leads to a very boring and dull life. This is an area where a lot of people can fail. You become so intense about reaching goals or about just simply participating in the rat race of life, that you end up forgetting to enjoy life. Setting a set time to take a break and just have a little fun, helps to release tension.
Workout and Eat Healthy – Lately it seems that working out and eating health is the cure-all to many physical ailments that people may face. Even though many do not want to face it, we are what we eat. If you are not used to eating health, this may be a difficult process for you to understand. Understand that it is not something that you have to do over night. If you can go cold turkey then great. I applaud you for that. However, most people will struggle in this area. I suggest that you start making small changes to your diet, and once you start to notice the changes in the way you feel, it will make it easier for you to make more drastic changes to your life style down the line.
It only takes a little concentrated effort on our parts to keep motivated and to be productive, which will in turn lead to the success that we desire. Work hard and have faith. You will obtain the desire of your heart.
