Worst Case Scenario
At the start of every day, think about the absolute worst thing that could happen to you during that day.
How likely is it that things would get so bad? Probably not very likely.
Remind yourself that even if the worst occurs, you have what it takes to overcome any situation, regardless of how terrible it may be, as you’re prepared for it.
It’s A Journey And Not The Destination
Living in the moment, is the best source of motivation you will ever find.

Today Is All You Can Influence
Accomplishing long term goals, is a mindful moment by moment activity.
You can’t change what has happened in the past, but you can influence what will happen in the future by focusing on achieving the goals you set for yourself each day.
Do the very best you can with what you have to work with right now. If you do, the future will take care of itself.
Be Inspired Passion
People who don’t care, rarely succeed.
Passion is one part emotion and one part commitment.
If you have commitment but no passion, your work will be dull. If you have passion but no commitment, your work will be unfocused.
But when the two come together, by bringing real passion to what you do each day, there’s nothing that can stop you.
Create A Motivational Environment
Your workplace needs to inspire you, whether it’s an office, a playing field, or wherever you are going to spend the biggest part of your day.
Make it a place that you will want to look forward to going.
Make sure it’s always neat, organized and trash and clutter free.
Include motivational triggers that will remind you of your goals and dreams, and inspire you to keep striving to achieve them.
Your Word Is Your Bond
Living up to the promises you make, both big and small, is what defines you in the eyes of other people.
Always stand by your word, and take what you promise others with the utmost seriousness.
This will improve your personal and professional reputation, and also motivate you to get things done.
By locking yourself into living up to your verbal commitments, you can create the inspiration you need to live up to the biggest promises you make to yourself
You can then achieve your greatest ultimate goals.
Share Your Knowledge With Others
When you share what you know with others, you will create a new confidence in yourself, especially when you see them achieve their goals with your help.
When you help other people, it also can create a clarity in your own mind about where your true talents lie, and what you are capable of doing.
Nurture Positive Habits
Around 80% of the things we do each day are habitual, meaning we do them without thinking about them.
Developing good habits and breaking bad habits, will allow you to spend more than half your time working toward your goals on auto-pilot.
Make a list of the successful habits you need to develop, then train yourself to start performing them daily until they become second nature.
Jump Out Of Bed
Begin your day with a flourish, and that intensity can follow you the rest of your day.
Give yourself a great reason to get out of bed every morning, and then attack the day with a high level of passion and intensity.
Every day holds at least one exciting thing.
Ask yourself, “What will today’s be?”
Use Measurable Objectives
You can accomplish any goal by breaking it down into a series of smaller steps.
Set a long-term goal for yourself, then create milestones to measure how close you are getting to achieving it each day, week and month.
Mark your milestones down on a calendar, and hang it somewhere you’ll see every day.
Celebrate your victories, and correct the ones that falls behind.
The Power Of Intensity
You can do anything for at least 10 minutes, right?
Whenever you are feeling tired, beaten or worn out, or are facing an unpleasant task, commit to working intensely for just another ten minutes.
Usually, by the time the ten minutes are up, you will have found a new solution or something else to inspire you to keep going.
Pushing yourself to get started, can give you the momentum to push past obstacles.
Start Small Grow Big
Remind yourself that the small tasks you perform each day, are leading towards your ultimate objective.
Focus not just on what you are doing, but why you are doing it.
What will be the long-term result of the hundreds of tiny short-term tasks, you perform each day?
You can motivate yourself during the “small stuff,” by thinking about how they will shape you as a person.
Always Be Grateful
Say “Thank you” more often than you do now. People appreciate it when you appreciate them.
Being grateful creates humility, and humility leads to grace, which fills the heart.
By practicing gratitude until it becomes second nature, the list of things in your life that you are grateful for will grow larger each day.
Gratitude is also the opposite of complaining.
By being positively grateful, you can avoid the negativity of complaining.
