Staying Motivated On A Bad Hair Day!
A challenge for all of us is how to stay motivated on a bad hair day. As you can see from my picture, I do not have a lot of hair, but do like you have the odd bad day when I think that everything is conspiring against me.
Days when you think that nothing that you seem to try is working! Your internet connection is slow, you cannot think of content, you cannot get a reply to an email, your partner thinks that you are wasting your time.
It is on days like these that you need the help of ” Little Victories”. These are little reminders of the progress that you have made and the skills and knowledge that you now have under your belt.
They also bring into focus what you have achieved to date and signpost what you can achieve in the future.
How Do You Record Little Victories?
Essentially you record in a few words a successful outcome and the date. What is perhaps the magic ingredient is to note down on a scale of 1-100 the amount of pleasure or excitement the success has given you. The higher the rating the more happiness and excitement that success has given you.
Your ratings are something that you create on an intuitive level. I find that a number just forms in my head when I think of the success. I have illustrated below some examples of my little victories.
You can include anything that you consider to be a step forward that gave you some pleasure and excitement.
The most important thing is that you create a bank of successes that will insulate you from setbacks and disappointments.
Reviewing your list will help you get ready for the next step forward!
This is a simple technique that I am sure will help you stay on track and quickly get over bad hair days.
