We're 6 months into the year, which means you still have 6 months to reach your goals you made for yourself back in January. Want to lose weight, quit smoking, save money, change jobs, etc? Well, you've got 6 months to get your butt into high gear.

Maybe you're making major progress toward changing your life and attaining your goals. If so, great job! If you're struggling to find motivation, we've got a few tips and tricks for you.


I've been obsessed with reading books about attaining goals and self development. I've learned a lot from authors who have great advice for people who are looking to find inspiration and motivation. Here are a few of my favorite motivational videos from the authors I love.

Mel Robbins talks about her 5 second rule (no, it's not the same as the food rule). This is a great video to watch for anyone struggling to find motivation and just get moving. The type of person who will benefit from this video is the person who knows what they need to do but just can't seem to actually DO it. 

Dave Ramsey talks about how to save money using 7 baby steps which can be found in his book, 'Total Money Makover.' It's a complete budget overhaul and lifestyle change that'll help set you on track to financial freedom. 

Tony Robbins chats about refocusing your life and setting your sights on things you can control. If you're looking to master your time, this is a great video for you to watch. 

Rachel Hollis has advice for people who keep failing at attaining their goals. She says you need to stop relying on outside motivation because that will only last for so long. 

This is the audio book of Napoleon Hill's 'Outwitting The Devil' which talks about how someone can overcome their own mind and become the person they were meant to be. 

Robert Kiyosaki is a great resource for someone who is struggling with wanting to start up a business and build more wealth. He explores two different views on life and finance that he received from his 'two fathers'. 

The Millionaire Next Door by Thomas J. Stanley is the perfect book for anyone looking to gain control of their financial situation and put themselves on a budget in hopes to build wealth. It explores the lifestyle of the affluent--who live a very different lifestyle than popular belief. 

Dale Carnegie's book 'How To Win Friends And Influence People' is perfect for someone who has a goal of personal growth and self development in the coming year. If you're looking to work better with others, enjoy your job, etc. this is the book for you.
