Reflecting on your achievements is often something that gets put to one side in busy lifestyles but is incredibly important in maintaining a high level of motivation. Yusra Mardini, UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador and 2016 Olympian, shares the three motivational tips on why its important to reflect on how far you’ve come:
It’s inevitable that you’re going to come up against a few hurdles, despite your best attempts to avoid them! Don’t let them deter you, and think of the solution (not the problem) to overcome them. Determination plays a big part in providing focus to accomplishing your goals so don’t give up if you don’t achieve them first time round.
When you’re faced with challenges, it’s often more difficult to remain positive and stay focussed on achieving your goals when the negative is crying out for your attention! Go back to the original concept, and remind yourself what the final outcome will be to help re-focus.
Make a point of celebrating the victories, no matter how small. This is incredibly important to ensure you keep progressing. Once you’ve conquered one milestone, focus on the next one and reflect on what you’ve achieved to help stay motivated.
