Motivation - The 4 Most Potent Ways To Awaken Your Enthusiasm
...it is in this whole process of meeting and solving problems that life has its meaning. Problems are the cutting edge that distinguishes between success and failure. Problems call forth our courage and our wisdom; indeed, they create our courage and our wisdom. It is only because of problems that we grow mentally and spiritually...It is through the pain of confronting and resolving problems that we learn. - M. Scott Peck, The Road Less Traveled
Are there times in your life when you really want to just "throw in the towel" because for what it's worth, you can't see the positive results from the painstakingly concentrated work you've done? Well, you are not alone my friend! We all have had those discouraging, disconcerting thoughts.
But, slow down, listen up? Hold your horses!
Never ever think of giving up. Winners never quit and quitters never win. Take all negative words out of your mental dictionary and focus on the solutions with utmost conviction and patience. The battle is never lost until you abandon your vision.
So? What if you're really exhausted physically, mentally, spiritually and most of all emotionally? Here are some sources of motivation to prompt you in reaching the peak of accomplishment.
1) The Overwhelming Feeling of Attaining your Desired End?
How would you feel after accomplishing your mission? You know you'd feel ecstatic. You might even be shedding tears of joy. Let this tremendous feeling sink in and encourage you to persist despite all odds, endurance till the bitter end.
When I was studying nutrition back in California and about to test for my degree, I used this technique to motivate me. I would envision the appeal of people regarding me as an educated man. I would command respect, demand attention. People would view me nobly as a higher authority. Not to mention, I would be able to make more money and live a better lifestyle. Boy, did I absolutely absorb all these amazing perceptions into my inner being, into my heart and soul in order to achieve my ultimate goal.
2) The Incentive System?
How would you feel if you've entered a contest, but no prizes were available for the winners? Not very encouraging, is it?
The same principles apply to your vision. Reward yourself after accomplishing a goal. Set a particular incentive for every objective achieved. You deserve it!
Let's say if you've achieved a particular task, you'd treat yourself to your favorite meal at your favorite restaurant. And when you finish a bigger task, you'll go on a vacation.
Got the idea? Pretty cool eh?
Just a little something gratifying to indulge in after completing a certain undertaking.
3) The Potent Force of Humanity?
If you want to succeed, surround yourself with the right kind of people who will support and encourage you 100% all the way.
Be with people who have the same beliefs and aspirations as yours. Positive aura is generated by this fusion of collective energy from people of "like minds." This is how successful people do it.
And contrarily speaking, being with people who oppose your ways of thinking may trigger a negative, yet very potent, kind of motivation.
Has anyone ever said to you that "You'll never go anywhere", "Be anybody" or "You're wasting your time with what you're doing?" I have, it's so petty, so little...do not listen, it's not true. You can accomplish anything you desire!
But, if it has happenned, like it did to me, did it make you furious and determined enough to prove to them how wrong they were? Good, this is what I'm talking about.
When aggravated, you will do anything to make those who are against you eat their words. But of course, your main focus should be on the accomplishment of your goal and not on revenge, this is wasted energy. Never let your emotions toward others alter your foremost objective. Keep your eye on the prize!
4) Take Care Of And Manage Your Health?
Eat right! Balance and moderation, do not over indulge. Exercise regularly. Oxygenate your brain; blood-oxygen to the brain is crucial to sustained vigor and vitality. Hydrate, water, water everywhere!
Take regular breaks if time permits. Having the will power to continue despite all hardship is extremely important, but know your limitations. You are in charge, be in charge. Yes, you are the boss of you!
Without proper rest, you will not be able to think clearly and you will not be able to perform necessary tasks efficiently. It's what the doctor ordered?
And don't forget to sleep, sleep, sleep! Recharge and revitalize yourself after a hard day's work. Never, ever ignore your health. Did you know that sleep is the most under-rated, yet essential nutrient known to man. Believe me, I've been there, I too once sacrificed my health for the sake of success?thought I would 'sleep when I was dead', not anymore, I learned my lesson!
It's not worth it. Success won't matter if you are not well, good health is a key component to a good life.
