Brilliant Ways to Remain Motivated When You Feel Like You’ve Tried Everything

October 21, 2018

Isn’t it frustrating when you think you’ve tried everything to achieve something and you still feel like a failure. And we sit and wait for someone or some form of luck that would one day change failure into success. 

The truth is, you, yourself need to seek out the opportunity or happiness. Failures are not a bad thing.  Many have failed before they found success. Instead of ignoring them, you need to recognize the failures, accept them, and make the conscious decision to move on.

Here are few ways to remain Motivated and Seek Success:


Have a Better Understanding of What You Want

 Are you clear on what you want or what you’re looking for? Knowing what you want will help you make choices, and changes that are necessary to accomplish what you want.

Without knowing what you want to accomplish will lead you do things that you don’t really want to do.  The desire to be knowledgeable about what you want is not new. Most successful people spend lots of time thinking what is that they want in life.  This leads them to better understanding of their talents, strengths, knowledge and power.

Once you have figured out what you want you will start believing that you are intelligent and good at solving problems.  Behaving in such a way will help you perform better in situations where those traits are valued.


 Set Goals That Are Meaningful to You

Setting goals is an important step and setting meaningful goals for yourself is even more important.  Goals require creativity, focus and standards.

Set goals that you know will get you where you want to be.  Goals that will lead you to your dreams. You should be able to visualize your goals.

If there are goals that you’ve tried achieving but was unsuccessful, then it’s time to rethink those goals. Are those goals feasible? Are they realistic? 

Sometimes, we have to let go off goals that are not working for us.  Goals that are hard to achieve and leaving us over-stressed, overtired, or overworked.

Make simple yet effective and realistic goals.  Writing and then reviewing your goals is the first step to setting smart goals.  For each long-term goal, create short-term goals. Short-term goals keep your motivation intact, as you accomplish them. 


Re-evaluate Current Situation

Sometimes, when things are not working the way you want, you need to reevaluate what you’re currently doing. In other words, you need to look at the way you’re trying to accomplish things. 

Is your schedule realistic?  Are you overloading yourself with tasks? Do you have a roadmap in place? 

Having a clear picture of what you need to do, and when to do them, will help you accomplish more.  You will end up completing more tasks and feel more satisfied and happier.  It will keep you thriving and motivated.


Be Easy on Yourself

Don’t blame yourself if something does not work out the way you wanted.  Keep pushing yourself to achieve something that you know is not going to happen is not ideal either.

Take a break. Sometimes taking your attention and focus off from something helps refresh your thinking. It helps you make better decisions, and helps you finish the same project or task that you’ve been trying to accomplish using a different strategy.

Being easy on yourself will help unleash your strengths and become more confident.  It will also help you understand what works for you, and what doesn’t, and where you should be putting your time and effort.


Make a Habit of Taking Responsibility

You’ve probably heard this before, that we are responsible for our own actions. You hold the power to determine how your life will turn out.

The actions you take will decide whether you’re going to be successful.  By accepting responsibility, you’re embracing your power.  Things that you’re doing impacts the quality of your life, and by keep working to improve will help you learn and grow.


Avoid Procrastination

Probably most of us are experts at putting things to do until the very last minute. And the most common reason to procrastinate is when we don’t have any plans.  There is a list of tasks that needs to be done but not knowing how to execute them.  Either the tasks keep changing or the plan.

Tending to tasks when you’re supposed to will help you feel comfortable and stress-free.  It will help you achieve more. 


Don’t Push Yourself Too Hard

Most people give up or fail, simply because they want to do everything on their own.  They overload themselves with too many things to do and take care of.

Share your load.  Have someone by your side for support.  There are things or tasks that you can ask someone to take care of for you. Share your frustrations and emotions with someone you trust.  It will help you feel better and sometimes those conversations will assist you in making better choices. 



Keeping yourself motivated even you’ve tried everything is not difficult.  Simple things like knowing what you want in life, having a plan, setting goals, re-evaluating your current situation, being easy with yourself, being responsible for your own actions, avoiding procrastination and by sharing your emotions and feeling with someone you trust, will help you make better decisions. 

These decisions will help you make better choices and do what things that will help you achieve your dream.  Feeling sorry for yourself because you failed will lower your self-esteem, and self-confidence, which is not what you want.

Get yourself together using the strategies shared in this article. Remember, only you can make it happen.  You can change the failure into success if you really want to.
