The reason why some people succeed while some do not. It largely depends on the amount of motivation. Being said that, let me tell you, motivation does not come on its own; you need a reason to be and stay motivated. Unless you do not have a relevant reason to indulge in a particular activity, you will not get motivated. Instead, you will not get motivated easily for a longer time.

Do not worry! Everybody faces days when they are not at all motivated to do their work. We are here for you! Here are some ways on how you can stay motivated to achieve your goals and aspirations in life.
Answer your "WHY?"
Why do you want it? What value does it hold in your life? How will it matter? What will happen when you get it? Answering these questions in the first place is the most important thing to do. These would be the reasons for you to achieve something as well as work for it.
Set your goals
Setting a particular goal helps you in making a decision and acting in a specific way. However, you have to keep in mind that the setting’s goals should be realistic that can be achieved in real-time. It will give you a direction as to where to start.
Choosing goals of your interest
If you choose the goals that interest you, you will automatically stay motivated without pushing yourself to stay motivated. The reason behind this is that you genuinely want to achieve that particular goal without any external force or pressure.
Telling people about your goals to some extent is helpful since it will remind you repeatedly that you have to achieve that goal as you have said about it to the people around you.
Positive reinforcement means rewarding yourself. In case you have set a big goal, you can reward yourself with a good dinner or a break day when you achieve small goals to attain the bigger one. This way, you will stay motivated to move forward.
Friends and family
Make your friends and family a part of the process. Social support plays an essential role in achieving success as this will encourage you and energize you mentally to do what you are doing.
Think about the future
Keep reminding yourself what will happen when you achieve that goal and level up. Think about the happiness, success, and love you will get from people, as well as the heights you will reach after achieving that specific goal.
Procrastination is something that everyone does at some point or the other. Nonetheless, you have to remind yourself not to waste time by making excuses. Whenever you realize you are procrastinating, get up immediately, and get back to work without any second thoughts.
Making deadlines to complete something will help you in a lot of ways. It will not only help you tackle procrastination but also give you the chance to reward yourself.
Multitasking not only reduces productivity but also takes up a lot of energy. Avoid multitasking as much as you can and focus on one particular work. Complete it, then head to another. These were the tips on how you can stay motivated. However, you should also give yourself a BREAK! Take a break, freshen up, do some fun activity, go to a movie or fun place. Get back home and continue to work.
These small things matter a lot as they are the driving forces to success!
