The idea of regaining my motivation is difficult as it seems. As everybody knows, success starts from the purpose of a person, reasons and his motives. The unwritten mission and heavy reason why does he plan to do such thing. You are doing things not because it is something that is unnecessary or unworthy, everything has a backstory and reason why it was build or why it was destroyed. Motivation, in addition, is the process that makes a person driven in accomplishing his goals or plans. It affects human’s behavior in reaching, or not, his goal. From my side, I’m still in a process of regaining my motivation in life. Still in phase of making my path straight and ready for the hazy route that this journey might give me.

Adulting is difficult because still, this is a coping process for me. I graduated from college from a couple of years ago… but still hustling to adapt the changes that this real world is throwing me. My motivation today evolved from my unrealistic goal before. “Nothing is impossible” as they say, but to build your success with your vague motivation is ridiculously impossible.

Developing a clear focused mindset is difficult to attain. The habit of making everything in order and staying calm under unexpected conundrum is tough. Some people succeed in surpassing this stage but most of those who tried, stopped and didn’t pursue the process even though they are fully motivated at the beginning of the progress, they ended up unsuccessful and miserable. Building a strong motivation could be applied to everything. It could be in making your online business works, saving a fund for your travel goal, your professional growth etc.

Everything that we aim and want to happen in our future gain, motivation is the key in making the idea of success, reached. The strong foundation of reasons of making such thing is what we need in making our route clear and strong in any disturbance. The idea of making yourself focus is the best thing you could do in making your journey straight and got an enjoyable process.

Inline from the given information above, here are the simple ways in making yourself focused in reaching and attaining your goal in life:

DECLUTTER

This process is not as simple as tidying up your closet or kitchen; throwing away things that aren’t keep-worthy as it was before. This simple process of organizing has a great impact and meaning to someone’s well-being. Your control for simple things manifests to the complex aspect of your life.

The simple organization of your desk helps you to have a clear and focus mind in accomplishing the task you have sat that specific day. Everything start in simple and goes to complex. The removal of unnecessary items from your box makes not just the scenery pleasant but your feelings lighter. It is necessary for you to make this as a practice in eliminating useless things to prioritize the important details in making decision. Clear mind makes wise decision, do not let the opposite state put you in a position where regret is only the option.

Here are the things that you have to remember in decluttering your home/workspace:

1. Your goal must be clear in this process. Questions like, “why do I need to declutter? how does decluttering things help me? how will I declutter?” are the questions that must be answered in starting the process. In addition, you must understand that decluttering is not a one-day process. The progress and development of the habit is long and you must understand that you don’t have to push the moment to organized everything. You might start with your desk today, whole room tomorrow and the kitchen next week. Rushing things without a proper plan might make you indecisive in every of your decision.

2. Get rid the unnecessary. It’s hard to let go with things that are sentimental but the idea of letting the unnecessary things go help you to move on get a brighter life. This is very applicable not just for general but also to the things that we kept from the past that don’t have essential in our present growth. Taking pictures of the tangible things and putting them to the cloud makes the space light and gives you room to breathe in.

3. Create a sorting system. This is one of the famous organization hacks that most of everyone does. The idea of sorting things from what to keep, donated, sell and get rid of helps you to shape your wise decision making. By having some sorted boxes, you could be able to see what to keep and what not.

MEDITATE

In general standpoint, meditation means the process of engaging in contemplation or reflection. Also, it means, the technique for resting the mind and attaining a state of consciousness that is different from the normal waking state. This process could be done in the morning or evening before you sleep. The activity makes someone reduce his stress and control the anxiety that he has gotten.

Once you meditate, the activity heightens the level of your concentration. It makes you feel refresh and give you a greater chance in making a proper decision. The attention span of an individual today is getting weaker and shorter. This activity could help you to regain your focus and concentration.

In this process, consistency is the most essential thing that must considered. There are tons of applications that you could use in developing the process. Your only enemy here is the level of your consistency in doing the activity. Your consistency deals with your allotted schedule for the process. You must allot 30 minutes or more every day in developing thing habit of concentration.

This activity will help you to reset your focus and helps you to think of or regain your motivation in life. This consistent process will help you to re-brand and improve yourself. It is hard to grasp again the motivation that you have made before you’re starting, but meditation will help you to think deeper and realize the things that you should be focused on.

BE REMINDED

The consistent reminder for someone’s stability must not be done by anyone but by himself. Most of the scenario in making how they make themselves focused is by forgetting on how to be consistent. In everyday, there are a lot of dilemmas that could be met by a person, like some could have a bad day or some could have a ruined schedule delivered by unanticipated things. Unexpected situation makes the inconsistency of someone triggered, that’s why the importance of plans help to relieve the unexpected problem.

Being reminded to your developing habits make you become consistent everyday. Setting up goals everyday and contemplating the reached objective that specific day will help you to see the developing progress. This progress will help you to track if you are making yourself the best version of it or making it stagnated.

The best way to be reminded of yourself is to write it down. Jotting down your daily reminders, or if you love paper less living, typing it makes you assisted to be reminded of the objective that you are planning to achieve. It is not easy to develop this kind of idea, especially if you think that this activity will consume or waste your time. But fact, allotting 20 or 30 minutes in planning will help you to have a mini compass in tracking the direction that will make you reach the objective of the day. The process of time blocking could help you to track down and achieve the task that must be accomplished in that specific day.

Time blocking is the practice of planning every moment, minutes or hour of your day in dedicating specific time “blocks” in certain task. Also, to-do list is different in time blocking. To-do list tells you what to do but the activity helps you to decide when to do it.

Note: The things that you must remember in making yourself clear in your objective. It is easier to be distracted rather than making yourself move and be motivated. The problem with most of people are they let the destruction flow inside them. Fact, it is a matter of self-awareness and confidence to knock the laziness down. Don’t let procrastination be your bestfriend in every down situation. It will never make you ready and prepared for your success. Again, be focused.
