Everyone goes through stages in their life of wanting to improve themselves, but it is
often short-lived. It is very easy to go back to your old habits, stop journaling, quit on
your action steps to achieve goals, and just do what is easy. Here are some ways to
motivate yourself to keep up your self-improvement journey.

Your Support System is Everything

When you want to be more motivated for self-improvement, you need to look at who you
choose to spend your time with. Find supportive people, but not just those who will
support everything you do from afar though this is also great! Try to find people who
think the same way as you. People who are also working on themselves, trying to
achieve personal growth, and will not only support your self-improvement, but who you
can support on their journey as well.

Choose the Right Affirmations

Positive affirmations are a wonderful tool that are not used nearly enough. A positive
affirmation is a phrase you tell yourself that will help you think more positively. While
they are used in many different scenarios, from improving your mindset to relieving
stress and anxiety, they can also be a tool for motivation. The trick here is to choose the
right types of affirmations.

You can write them yourself or look up lists of motivational, inspirational, and thought-
provoking affirmations. Here are some examples:

I am my own motivation.
I can encourage others as much as myself.
I will continue working toward my goals.

Keep Working on Self-Development

Personal growth and self-development is not something you will fix overnight. It is a
continuous process for the rest of your life. Continue working on improving yourself and
stay motivated by reading new books, articles, listening to Podcasts, and practicing self-
awareness. Inflect on your life regularly, write in a journal, and talk to others who have
the same mindset as you. Surrounding yourself by people who are supportive and also
bettering themselves is a great way to keep each other motivated.

Visualize What You Want

Lastly, make sure you are visualizing what you want. Visualize not just your journey
right now toward achieving your goals and dreams, but see the end result as well. Keep
that vision in your head every day, whenever you get the opportunity, and you will keep
finding more motivation and inspiration to keep going.
