Motivation and demotivation are the parts of human’s life. Every human being feels demotivated at least once in his lifetime. Many times demotivation can destroy everything if you don’t know how to cope up with it. So learning to handle demotivation and stay motivated is essential for a successful life.
As like other people, Bloggers also feel demotivated many times when they get something unexpected like not getting enough traffic, not getting enough comments, sudden degrade in Page Rank, traffic Drop, more criticism instead of appreciation etc. Many of them get distracted or feel like lost everything but few are strong enough to tackle the situation and stay motivated.
So today I am sharing the post how to motivate yourself in which I would write everything from my real life experience. I hope this post can help those bloggers who feel demotivated most frequently.
Here are few ways that can help you to stay motivated:
Forget the Google updates
It might seem odd to you that I am suggesting you to forget the Google updates because it is most important to understand the updates and prepare your blog accordingly in order to stay safe from them.
But still, I would like to suggest to forget the Google updates because most of the times it is going disappoint you. I am not saying to ignore the updates completely but forget it at least for some time when you are demotivated. Just try to write great content for your readers.
!Don’t think about those stuff which will tense you when you need some good time!
Remember the Good phases of your life
Whenever you feel disappointed, try to go in flashback of good times happened in your life. It may be a family tour, a picnic with friends, your achievements and many more.
Most importantly, try remembering the achievements you have made in your life. Think about them as how you have started and achieved those things. I am sure you would feel relaxed and motivated.
I am taking my example here, like others I do feel demotivated many times and feel like lost everything but I don’t just give up. I start remembering how I migrated from a small city to the capital city, New Delhi and how I studied then entered into professional life and how I started blogging and became a part of blogosphere where now I am being loved by a number of fellow bloggers and others.
Just talking about yesterday, I made a page on my personal blog named as “featured on” in which I have mentioned all the blogs where I have got featured my name. These might not be the big achievements but still, when I check them out I feel relaxed and get the motivation to work even harder to achieve more. I created the page so that I can check all of them out at one place whenever I feel demotivated.
!Live the happy moments so that it could help you motivate yourself when you feel demotivated!
Read the words of appreciations for you by others
In the life, you get both appreciation and criticism. Both help you grow but when you feel demotivated, go and check out/remember all those good words which were either written or told by others for you. If you are into blogging then check out the comments on your posts where other bloggers/readers wrote few good words for you. This is just a small thing but this can motivate you to a greater extent. I can say this because I have tried it many times and got motivated.
!Do something great and get appreciation from people, so that for later you would be having something which you can remind to motivate yourself!
Read about few extremely successful personalities
I am not sure if it can work with everyone but whenever I read about successful bloggers and other people I feel full of motivation. Few days ago, even I know about Sir. Amit Agrawal but still I read a lot about him here & there and also watched few of his TV interviews on Youtube. That time I was feeling so motivated that I cannot explain in words. Years ago when I had started blogging I read a post written by Onibalusi about his life and I can say that inspired me a lot during my infant period of blogging. There are a lot of success stories of different personalities which all I cannot mention here in one post.
!Always read successful stories to motivate yourself. It works!
These are few ways you can use to motivate yourself. This is not just another list of things to do for motivation but these are my real life experiences. Hope these can help you motivate yourself as well.
