As challenges bear down on you, the negativity creeps in. Sidestep your self-made motivational landmines with these questions:
- Why do I want to achieve this? — (Write down 5 reasons why you HAVE to get it done.)
- How will I feel when I have overcome every obstacle and achieved the goal? (Get in touch with how amazing it will feel.)
- What will it cost me in 10 years time if I give up? (Really feel the pain associated with how your life will suffer in the future.)
