1. Don't Assume Money Will Motivate You

In an interview with Bustle over email, motivational trainer (plus business and life coach) Karen Strunks says, "Many people think money alone will be enough to motivate them, and whilst that may do so initially, it's very hard to sustain financial motivation if the work you are doing actually drags. If you do that type of work for long enough you will find that no amount of money is worth swapping parts of your life in activities that aren't aligned with who you are and what truly is your passion and mission in life." So first things first, be true to yourself when it comes to setting goals!

2. Make Sure They're Your Goals

And on that note, Strunks also says that, "One of the biggest challenges in staying motivated and sticking to our goals is in making sure that the goals we have set our ones we really want to attain." She went on to note, "Sometimes we set goals based on what we think we 'should' do. Or we base them on what other people say." Make sure you're going after something that you want and that makes you happy — it can make all the difference.

3. Visualize The Results

According to a piece featured on Forbes about staying motivated, it's important to visualize the end result and what it will feel like when you've achieved your end goal. This means visualizing the sweat on your back, the feeling of relief, the utter excitement — this is what will fuel you on days when you don't feel like working.

4. Play as the key to self motivation

Studies have shown that enjoyable activities is the key to self motivation.

For example, a study investigating reasons for exercise shows that those focused on weight loss spend 32% less time exercising than those who are just exercising to feel better in their day to day life.
