It’s the middle of February. If you made a New Year’s Resolution and you are holding strong, good for you. It is tough to stick to a difficult goal, but it can be so rewarding. If you are struggling with your resolution, you are in good company. By this time, nearly 40% of those who made a New Year’s resolution have begun struggling to achieve their goals.  But, it does not have to be this way. If you are having a hard time staying motivated with your New Year’s invention idea resolution, there are several motivational steps you can take to remember why you started in the first place.

Remind Yourself of Your Goal

Sometimes it is important to go back to where it all began. What was your original inspiration for starting your invention idea? What goals did you hope to achieve? Visualize yourself achieving the goal, and image how you would feel if you attained it. These exercises can refresh you and get you excited to push forward with your invention idea.

Ask For Help

A push from your friends and family may be just what you need to be persistent with your invention idea. Talk with your loved ones about how important this is to you and ask for assistance, motivation, and support. You should also contact your InventHelp sales representative if you are unsure of how to move forward with your idea.

Switch It Up

If you have been working on the same idea for a while, it may be hard to stay motivated. Try reevaluating some of your strategies to see if there is anything you can do to improve. The new elements in your plan may excite you and entice you to get back to work. A fresh outlook can improve any situation.

Get Inspired

Read some self-help books, look up some motivational quotes online, meditate, spend some time with nature, or do whatever you need to do to clear your head and get inspired. If you are looking for motivational quotes on the web, Pinterest is a great place to start. Although you may feel frustrated with your invention idea, inspirational quotes and some quiet time can help you to feel rejuvenated and encouraged.

Be Flexible

We all know sometimes life gets in the way. If an obstacle blocks your path, try to stay flexible while still looking towards the future. Do not let yourself get frustrated by minor setbacks. Persistence, patience, and flexibility will help you to achieve your goal more than frustration and impulsiveness ever could.

If you are struggling with keeping your New Year’s invention resolution or another invention idea, know it is okay to fall off the path a bit, so long as you’re able to pull yourself back on. Remind yourself of your goal, ask for help if you need it, reevaluate your strategies, seek inspiration, and be flexible. Follow our Facebook posts for more motivational posts.
