I say, Have a nice day.”

Don’t dwell on the fact that you didn’t do so great on that test, or didn’t win employee of the month at work. It sucks when mistakes happen or things don’t go as we planned, but to motivate yourself to live your best life, you need to let things go and move forward.
6. Expect Set Backs

Don’t let it hold you back from moving forward, but also expect that you won’t always succeed at things that are important to you. All you can do is work hard and try your best in this world and good things WILL come but so will the bad. It happens. It’s life.
7. Keep In Mind What You’re Working Towards

Part of a way to motivate yourself is by keeping in mind what you are doing all this for. The end goal is the reward! And helps to live your best life.
8. Don’t Forget To Appreciate What You Have
During those times of stress of working towards your goal, don’t forget to appreciate the good things that you have in your life right now.
Having a clean home, workspace, car, etc. can change your mood drastically. A clear personal area equals a clear state of mind.
10. Start Your Goals Small
Baby steps really do make a world of a difference. Sure, there should be a long term goal, but think more about the small steps you need to take to get there. It helps keep the motivation on working towards your best life.
