7 Daily actions that make you feel good and keep you motivated

I was recently asked for some coaching expertise on daily actions anyone can take to feel good and stay motivated, so below are 7 daily actions that make you feel good and keep you motivated.

Of course, before you do any of the things below you have to be someone who continuously CHOOSES to be fulfilled, to be happy and feel good.

In the end, it’s all about who you choose to be moment to moment. The more you train yourself to be happy and fulfilled and get back to it when you’re not feeling it, the better you’ll become.

7 Daily actions that make you feel good and keep you motivated

1. Be grateful. Stop what you’re doing for a few minutes each day (and especially when you’re in a negative funk) and take the time to either think about the things in your life you are grateful for, or write them down.7 Daily actions that make you feel good and keep you motivated

Be intentional about being grateful. It’s an easy way to feel joyful, get inspired and bring more great situations and people into your life. Learn more about why gratitude rocks, here.

2. Get grounded in what you’re committed to from a big picture perspective. Every morning, Steve Jobs used to ask himself: “If today was the last day of my life would I be happy about what I’m about to accomplish today?”.

An easy way to feel good in the present when you have things you aren’t particularly inspired or motivated to do is to get present to your future goals, what you are trying to achieve. If you’re working towards things in your life that excited you (which you should be!) then it’s an easy way to get immediately inspired.

Think about your future self and what you’re working to accomplish. Visualize it and take it into your day.It will dictate what actions you need to take. And you’ll always be progressing an moving forward.

3. Talk to yourself in the mirror. Before you leave the house in the morning take a moment to acknowledge yourself. Look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself out loud that you are brilliant.

Get present to your greatness. Think about awesome times you achieved incredible things in your past. Reflect on how great you are.

Doing this every day will translate to massive confidence and producing incredible results in all areas of your life.

4. Make a difference for someone else. There is nothing better than doing something incredible for someone else just for the sake of it. This can be anyone – a stranger or friend or lover.

Express your kindness and generosity. Don’t be stingy with your love. Really be in the moment when you are with other people. Make them feel heard and loved.

5. Do some high intensity aerobic activity. This type of exercise stimulates endorphins and the release of the feel good chemical dopamine.

So, get your body moving. It’ll make you feel good and likely when you look in the mirror at your awesome body you’ll feel pretty motivated too!

6. Do something to treat yourself. Every day you should do something you consider fun just for the sake of fun. Indulge. Watch a show you love. Eat a snack you love. Grab a tea break with a friend. Life is to be enjoyed. It’s fine to be serious but you also need to let your “freak flag fly” regularly.

7. Do something physically taxing. Even if you only do it for ten minutes, do something to really challenge your system. It will help you build resiliency. It will also help you stay motivated. When you’re in a negative state the quickest way to shift it is to shock your body.

How to believe in yourself

Some people are better than others at believing in themselves. But we all have moments where we think: “I can’t do this”, or, “what I want is not for me”.

Believing in yourself is the first step in changing anything in your life. It’s a necessary component for success.

Ultimately, your belief in you is what dictates what you have and who you become in life.

So, here is what you need to know about belief so you can believe in yourself and get back to believing in yourself in moments where you lose it.

How to believe in yourself


Somewhere in you’re past you learned that you weren’t good enough. It’s something we all learn. We go from thinking we are invisible to having an instance or instances where we get we’re not perfect.

Knowing this is what has us doubt ourselves and our ability. Some people do this more than others.

It’s important you train yourself to recognize how awesome you are. It’ll dictate what you accomplish in life and who you are with other people. When you believe in yourself you become ultra powerful, regardless of the noise that sometimes goes on in your head.

When you don’t believe in yourself, you’ll waiver on making choices because you’re not settled in who you are. If you continue to live like this you will never get the vastness of your greatness.

You need to focus on loving yourself. Sounds cheesy perhaps, but if you learn to love yourself you will start to get really clear on everything in life. Believing in yourself will become easy.

Here’s how to build your “I believe in myself” muscle:

  1. Create an Awesome You list. Develop a list of all the qualities you have that you love about yourself and moments where you’ve accomplished things in the past you are proud of. Provide evidence of your greatness. Every day you need to read your list. Use it especially when you aren’t feeling confident. This might help you: Gain confident on demand
  2. Mirror work. It’s uncomfortable but it’s the most effective way to become better with you. Spend 5 minutes in the morning looking at yourself in the mirror and speaking to yourself. Tell yourself you are awesome. Get to know the person in the mirror. Get to love them. It’s tough but if you’re willing to conquer your initial feelings about the process, you’ll soon learn that this is one of the most effective ways of getting you to a more confident place. It will also translate to massive results in all area of your life. Basically, when you are really good with you and love yourself, life works.
  3. Stop putting yourself down when you make a choice on something and it doesn’t play out as you intended. Stop relating to yourself as “good” or “bad”.  Instead, start looking at everything you do as effective or ineffective. When you take an action that is ineffective consider why it didn’t work and develop a structure moving forward to avoid this in future. There’s no such thing as failure. You’re not bad. Whatever action you took didn’t work. It’s important you stop combining the two.

Sometimes you need to tell the negative voice in your head to “shut-up”. Really. When your thoughts don’t serve you say to yourself “thanks for sharing” and move on.

And this goes for everyone: stop being so damn hard on yourself! You’re awesome. You’re human and not perfect. We’re all works in progress at different stages.

To make this ritual a no-brainer for you, I have created a free tool at the end of this post that you can grab that makes it much easier.

So here is…

The two minute daily ritual that builds your confidence and transforms your life…

The basic concept is called “mirror work”. Here’s how it works:

Stand in front of the mirror, in the morning preferably, and talk to yourself like you’re having a conversation with the you in the mirror. You tell yourself: “I’m awesome,” and, “I’m brilliant.” And you send love to yourself.

When  I first discovered this ritual, I felt very silly doing it. But I also found that it is ridiculously effective and I like the results it produces. Most people have a similar experience. I also love being unshakably confident.

Stick it out and put in at least two minutes each day to do mirror work. I dare you to try it for seven days using my tool.


Here is why it’s so effective in improving your-self esteem and giving you what you want in all areas of life.

How to improve self-esteem – start with mirror work

Some people have a very difficult time being with themselves in a mirror. That is because most people are used to beating themselves up for why they aren’t good enough.

The mental chatter in our heads, when you stand quietly being with ourselves in the mirror, can be unbearable for some. It was for me.

Mirror work is very different than looking at yourself when you brush your teeth. Or when you check out how great you look in that hot new dress or bespoke new suit. It’s a practice that’s about being with yourself in an a highly personal and intimate way.

But here’s the BIG SECRET about what happens when you do mirror work. When you do it often and learn to enjoy it, your entire experience of life will change.

When you love yourself unconditionally, similar to the love a parent gives a child, the deep joy and peace you experience will shift all your behaviors and how you perceive the world. And how others perceive you.

When you learn how to be with yourself in the mirror and authentically enjoy that experience, you will experience:

  • A feeling of peace and ease with yourself you never thought was possible.
  • Improved self-esteem.
  • Profound joy for yourself, your life and everyone and everything around you.
  • An abundance of energy. You’ll accomplish more in less time.
  • More positive results in all areas of your life.
  • Passion and connection in your romance (and mind blowing sex!)


The core beliefs you hold about yourself shape your reality. And you carry you wherever you go. When you are in love with you your world rocks no matter what comes your way.

You become someone who is settled in who you are. You don’t waiver on what you want. You stand for that. You stand for yourself.

Really, take this on. Try it. It will change your life.
