Imagining yourself as an underdog out to prove the naysayers wrong is a great motivator. The key to sustaining your motivation is to use your imagination and reframe the mundane, uninspiring activities or situations into something that gives you a sense of purpose.
The daily struggles can be turned into epic adventures using your imagination, and the brain can be tricked to make the body perform better.
Listening to a great soundtrack that pumps your inner fuel (Born To Run by Bruce Springsteen, or Lose Yourself by Eminem, for instance) is a sure-fire way to spark your imagination and sustain your goal-oriented behaviour.
Cultivating an underdog mindset is useful as it takes the pressure off and makes us reimagine ourselves as someone who is starting from zero and has nothing to lose, making our small victories seem epic.
