1. Setting Goals: This is very important. Without a definite goal in life, you are not heading anywhere. Check if your goal has a strong purpose or reason. We all live in a world where we run around to achieve something. If you are satisfied with that ‘something’ then there is no issue. However, define the ‘something’. Be focused on the end rewards and the motivation factor will work better on you. Align yourself into a position that takes you there to your desired goal, but unless you have a strong reason behind your actions, you will not be able to achieve the desired progress in your life.
2. Challenging yourself: Nothing works better than challenging oneself. Keep challenging yourself every day and for everything. Keep the fire burning within you, immaterial how much you are able to achieve each day. The small accomplishments are like the oil keeping the lamp burning. Your vision will become clearer and goals nearer. So keep challenging your own self at every step.
3. Getting out of your comfort zone: Your comfort zone makes you procrastinate. If you want to achieve something in life learn to get out of this comfort area, which could be emotional or mental, or maybe both. What you do every day will dictate your future.

Remember, self-motivation is driven by daily goals. Keeping yourself motivated is the key to long-term success and worthwhile accomplishment. Unlock the magical life you were BORN to live!
