Motivation is like a roller coaster ride and motivation is very important in whatever we you in life. It is the only driving force behind everything you do or achieved in life, be it going to class daily, or working a 9-5 job.
Staying motivated is very critical in the life of a blogger especially when you are a mini blogger like me and still struggling to get on league.
Here are 5 tips on how I stay motivated-
- Set small goals
Every night before going to sleep make a list of what you are going to do the next day. Everyday try to get atleast 10 unique visitors to your blog and try to gain atleast 3 feedback (comment) in your blog, this will help in knowing your performance status.
2) Turn negative comments into positive
No doubt ! when you put yourself out there in bigger platforms such as social media where strangers are open to judge you or support you, you are equally going to expect both positive and negative comments. Negavtive comments can ruin your entire day but don’t let that affect you. If you viewed negatively, all your energy would be wasted on negative thoughts and you will not produce any positive energy. Take negative feedback as an opportnity to do things differently.
3) Read blogging/motivational quote
Blogging quotes really help us to keep motivated. I always read success stories/quote and watch motivational videos whenever I feel demotivated.
“Building a blog is like making muscles. It takes some time, concentration, motivation and devotion.”
4) Analyze your blog status
Check your blog status after every 2 weeks and compare both the results. Visit your Google Analytic Tool from time to time and read all the performance status of your blog. Know where your traffic comes from and try to create a bond with your viewers/readers.
5) Take a break
Don’t forget to take a break. Break will help you fix things better and into place. Allow yourself in in real socialising rather than internet socialising. Physical environment counts too. A bright sunlight or sipping tea on a mountain top can reduce distraction and help in aid focus. And ‘NO’ I am not talking about any intense meditation activities. Just simple ways of thinking that act as a motivational kick-starters.
Motivation comes from within, but there is no one size fit model, so you need to broaden your horizons and ideas. Obstacles are bound to happen. See each obstacles as a new opportunity to manage emotional intelligence development.
