La motivation, le cœur de l’auto-amélioration

Être humilié nous donne la « poussée » de parler et de se battre pour nous-mêmes pour sauver notre visage des prochains embarras. C’est peut-être une expérience amère, l’histoire tragique d’un ami, un grand film, ou un livre inspirant qui nous aidera à nous lever et obtenir juste la bonne quantité de motivation dont nous avons besoin pour nous améliorer.

Avec les innombrables négativités que le monde apporte, comment pouvons-nous rester motivés? Essayez les conseils que j’ai préparés de A à Z …

R – Réalisez vos rêves. Évitez les personnes négatives, les choses et les lieux. Eleanor Roosevelt a dit un jour : « L’avenir appartient à ceux qui croient en la beauté de leurs rêves. »

B – Croyez en vous-même, et en ce que vous pouvez faire.

C – Considérez les choses sous tous les angles et tous les aspects. La motivation vient de la détermination. Pour être capable de comprendre la vie, vous devriez sentir le soleil des deux côtés.

D – N’abandonnez pas et ne cédez pas. Thomas Edison a échoué une fois, deux fois, plus de trois fois avant de venir avec son invention et perfectionné l’ampoule à incandescence. Faites de la motivation votre volant.

E – Profitez. Travaillez comme si vous n’avez pas besoin d’argent. Danse comme si personne ne regardait. L’amour comme si tu n’avais jamais pleuré. Apprenez comme si vous vivrez éternellement. La motivation a lieu quand les gens sont heureux.

F – La famille et les amis – sont les plus grands trésors « F » de la vie. Ne les perdez pas de vue.

G – Donnez plus que ce qui suffit. Où la motivation et l’auto-amélioration ont-elles lieu au travail? À la maison? A l’école ? Lorsque vous faites un effort supplémentaire pour faire les choses.

H – Accrochez-vous à vos rêves. Ils peuvent pendre là-dedans pendant un moment, mais ces petites étoiles seront votre force motrice.

I – Ignorer ceux qui essaient de vous détruire. Ne laissez pas les autres prendre le meilleur de vous. Restez à l’abri des personnes toxiques – le genre d’amis qui détestent entendre parler de votre succès.

J – Sois toi-même. La clé du succès est d’être soi-même. Et la clé de l’échec est d’essayer de plaire à tout le monde.

K – continuez d’essayer, peu importe à quel point la vie peut sembler difficile. Quand une personne est motivée, finalement il voit une vie dure enfin effacer, ouvrant la voie à l’auto-amélioration.

L – Apprenez à vous aimer. N’est-ce pas facile ?

M – Faire bouger les choses. La motivation, c’est quand vos rêves sont mis dans des vêtements de travail.

N – Ne jamais mentir, tricher ou voler. Jouez toujours à un jeu équitable.

O – Ouvrez les yeux. Les gens devraient apprendre l’attitude du cheval et le sens du cheval. Ils voient les choses de deux façons – comment ils veulent que les choses soient, et comment elles devraient être.

P – La pratique rend parfait. La pratique est une question de motivation. Il nous permet d’apprendre le répertoire et les moyens sur la façon dont nous pouvons nous remettre de nos erreurs.

Q – Les lâcheurs ne gagnent jamais. Et les gagnants ne démissionnent jamais. Alors, choisissez votre destin – allez-vous être un lâcheur? Ou un gagnant ?

R – Préparez-vous. La motivation, c’est aussi la préparation. Nous devons entendre la petite voix en nous dire de commencer avant que les autres ne se tendent et essaient de nous pousser. Rappelez-vous, il ne pleuvait pas quand Noé construit l’arche.

S – Arrêtez de tergiverser.
T – Prenez le contrôle de votre vie. Discipline ou maîtrise de soi jives synonyme de motivation. Les deux sont des facteurs clés dans l’auto-amélioration.

U – Comprendre les autres. Si vous savez très bien parler, vous devriez également apprendre à écouter. Annons à comprendre d’abord, et à être compris le second.

V – Visualisez-le. La motivation sans vision est comme un bateau sur une terre sèche.
W – Je le veux plus que tout. Rêver, c’est croire. Et croire est quelque chose qui est enraciné dans les racines de la motivation et de l’auto-amélioration.

X – X Factor est ce qui vous rendra différent des autres. Lorsque vous êtes motivé, vous avez tendance à mettre sur « extras » sur votre vie comme du temps supplémentaire pour la famille, une aide supplémentaire au travail, des soins supplémentaires pour les amis, et ainsi de suite.

Y – Vous êtes unique. Personne dans ce monde ne regarde, n’agit ou ne parle comme toi. Appréciez votre vie et votre existence parce que vous allez juste la dépenser une fois.

Z – Zero in sur vos rêves et aller pour elle!!!

Мотивация, Сердце самосовершенствования

Боль иногда может быть причиной, почему люди меняются. Получение бланков дает нам понять, что нам нужно учиться. Долги напоминают нам о нашей неспособности искать источник дохода.

Будучи униженным дает нам “толчок”, чтобы говорить и бороться за себя, чтобы спасти наше лицо от следующих смущений. Это может быть горький опыт, трагическая история друга, большой фильм, или вдохновляющая книга, которая поможет нам встать и получить только нужное количество мотивации нам нужно для того, чтобы улучшить себя.

С бесчисленными негативами, которые вызывает мир, как мы можем сохранить мотивацию? Попробуйте на советы, которые я подготовил от А до Я …

A – Достичь своей мечты. Избегайте негативных людей, вещей и мест. Элеонора Рузвельт однажды сказала: «Будущее принадлежит тем, кто верит в красоту своей мечты».

B – Верьте в себя, и в то, что вы можете сделать.

C – Рассмотрим вещи на каждом углу и аспекте. Мотивация исходит от решимости. Чтобы быть в состоянии понять жизнь, вы должны чувствовать солнце с обеих сторон.

D – Не сдавайтесь и не сдавайтесь. Томас Эдисон потерпел неудачу один раз, дважды, более чем в три раза, прежде чем он придумал свое изобретение и усовершенствовал лампу накаливания. Сделайте мотивацию в качестве рулевого колеса.

E – Наслаждайтесь. Работайте так, как будто вам не нужны деньги. Танцуй, как будто никто не смотрит. Любовь, как будто ты никогда не плакала. Учитесь, как будто вы будете жить вечно. Мотивация происходит, когда люди счастливы.

F – Семья и друзья – величайшие сокровища жизни ‘F’. Не упускать их из виду.

G – Дайте больше, чем достаточно. Где на работе происходит мотивация и самосовершенствование? Дома? В школе? Когда вы прилагаете дополнительные усилия в этом.

H – Держитесь за свои мечты. Они могут болтаться там на мгновение, но эти маленькие звезды будут вашей движущей силой.

Я – Игнорировать тех, кто пытается уничтожить вас. Не позволяйте другим людям, чтобы получить лучшее из вас. Держитесь подальше от токсичных людей – вид друзей, которые ненавидят слышать о вашем успехе.

J – Просто быть самим собой. Ключом к успеху является быть самим собой. И ключ к неудаче, чтобы попытаться угодить всем.

K – продолжайте пытаться независимо от того, как тяжелая жизнь может показаться. Когда человек мотивирован, в конце концов он видит суровую жизнь, наконец, расчистка, прокладывая путь к самосовершенствованию.

L – Научитесь любить себя. Разве это не просто?

M – Сделать вещи случаются. Мотивация, когда ваши мечты положить в рабочую одежду.

N – Никогда не лгать, обманывать или воровать. Всегда играйте в честную игру.

О – Открой глаза. Люди должны выучить ориентацию лошади и чувство лошади. Они видят вещи в 2 пути – как они хотят, чтобы все было, и как они должны быть.

P – Практика делает совершенным. Практика – это мотивация. Это позволяет нам узнать репертуар и способы, как мы можем оправиться от наших ошибок.

В – Выходцы никогда не выигрывают. И победители никогда не уходят. Итак, выберите свою судьбу – вы собираетесь быть quitter? Или победитель?

R – Готов к себе. Мотивация также о подготовке. Мы должны услышать маленький голос внутри нас говорю нам, чтобы начать работу, прежде чем другие вбудут на ноги и попытаться подтолкнуть нас вокруг. Помните, что не было дождя, когда Ной строит ковчег.

S – Прекратите медлить.
T – Возьмите под свой контроль свою жизнь. Дисциплина или самоконтроль jives синонимом мотивации. Оба являются ключевыми факторами самосовершенствования.

U – Поймите других. Если вы очень хорошо знаете, как говорить, вы также должны научиться слушать. Хочется понять, во-первых, и быть понятым второй.

V – Визуализуй его. Мотивация без зрения, как лодка на суше.
W – Хотите его больше, чем что-либо. Мечтать означает верить. И верить – это то, что уходит корнями в мотивацию и самосовершенствование.

X – X Factor это то, что сделает вас отличается от других. Когда вы мотивированы, вы, как правило, положить на “дополнительные” на вашей жизни, как дополнительное время для семьи, дополнительную помощь на работе, дополнительную заботу о друзьях, и так далее.

Y – Вы уникальны. Никто в этом мире не смотрит, не действует и не говорит так, как ты. Цените свою жизнь и существование, потому что вы просто собираетесь потратить его один раз.

Вопрос – Нулевой на ваши мечты и пойти на это!!!

Motivation, The Heart of Self-Improvement

Pain may sometimes be the reason why people change. Getting flunked grades make us realize that we need to study. Debts remind us of our inability to look for a source of income.

Being humiliated gives us the ‘push’ to speak up and fight for ourselves to save our face from the next embarrassments. It may be a bitter experience, a friend’s tragic story, a great movie, or an inspiring book that will help us get up and get just the right amount of motivation we need in order to improve ourselves.

With the countless negativities the world brings about, how do we keep motivated? Try on the tips I prepared from A to Z…

A – Achieve your dreams. Avoid negative people, things and places. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”

B – Believe in yourself, and in what you can do.

C – Consider things on every angle and aspect. Motivation comes from determination. To be able to understand life, you should feel the sun from both sides.

D – Do not give up and don’t give in. Thomas Edison failed once, twice, more than thrice before he came up with his invention and perfected the incandescent light bulb. Make motivation as your steering wheel.

E – Enjoy. Work as if you don’t need money. Dance as if nobody’s watching. Love as if you never cried. Learn as if you will live forever. Motivation takes place when people are happy.

F – Family and Friends – are life’s greatest ‘F’ treasures. Don’t lose sight of them.

G – Give more than what is enough. Where does motivation and self-improvement take place at work? At home? At school? When you exert extra effort in doing things.

H – Hang on to your dreams. They may dangle in there for a moment, but these little stars will be your driving force.

I – Ignore those who try to destroy you. Don’t let other people to get the best of you. Stay out of toxic people – the kind of friends who hates to hear about your success.

J – Just be yourself. The key to success is to be yourself. And the key to failure is to try to please everyone.

K – keep trying no matter how hard life may seem. When a person is motivated, eventually he sees a harsh life finally clearing out, paving the way to self-improvement.

L – Learn to love yourself. Now isn’t that easy?

M – Make things happen. Motivation is when your dreams are put into work clothes.

N – Never lie, cheat or steal. Always play a fair game.

O – Open your eyes. People should learn the horse attitude and horse sense. They see things in 2 ways – how they want things to be, and how they should be.

P – Practice makes perfect. Practice is about motivation. It lets us learn repertoire and ways on how we can recover from our mistakes.

Q – Quitters never win. And winners never quit. So, choose your fate – are you going to be a quitter? Or a winner?

R – Ready yourself. Motivation is also about preparation. We must hear the little voice within us telling us to get started before others will get on their feet and try to push us around. Remember, it wasn’t raining when Noah builds the ark.

S – Stop procrastinating.

T – Take control of your life. Discipline or self-control jives synonymously with motivation. Both are key factors in self-improvement.

U – Understand others. If you know very well how to talk, you should also learn how to listen. Yearn to understand first, and to be understood the second.

V – Visualize it. Motivation without vision is like a boat on a dry land.

W – Want it more than anything. Dreaming means believing. And to believe is something that is rooted out from the roots of motivation and self-improvement.

X – X Factor is what will make you different from the others. When you are motivated, you tend to put on “extras” on your life like extra time for family, extra help at work, extra care for friends, and so on.

Y – You are unique. No one in this world looks, acts, or talks like you. Value your life and existence because you are just going to spend it once.

Z – Zero in on your dreams and go for it!!!

動機,自我完善之心

疼痛有時可能係啲人改變嘅原因。 成績不及格使我哋意識到我哋需要學習。 債務提醒我哋無法尋找收入來源。

被羞辱畀咗我哋”推”,直言不諱,為自己而戰,以挽救我哋嘅面由下一個尴尬。 可能係一個痛苦經歷,一個朋友嘅悲慘故事,一部偉大嘅電影,或一本皷舞人心嘅書,將幫助我哋企起身,並得到正確的動力,我哋需要,以提高自己。

隨著世界帶來的無數負面情緒,我哋點樣保持動力? 嘗試我準備嘅提示由A到Z…

A -實現你的夢想。 避免消極的人,事物和地方。 埃莉诺·罗斯福曾經講過,”未來屬於嗰啲信自己夢想之美嘅人。

B -相信自己,相信自己能做什麼。

C =從各個角度同方面考慮問題。 動力來自決心。 要想理解生活,應該從兩邊感受陽光。

唔好放棄,唔好放棄。 托马斯·爱迪生喺發明並完善白熾燈泡之前,曾失敗過一次、兩次、三次以上。 把動力作為軚盤。

E =享受。 工作就好似你唔需要錢一樣。 跳舞好似冇人睇。 要,好似你從未喊過。 學習,如果你將永生。 動機發生喺啲人快樂嘅時候。

F =家人和朋友–係人生最偉大嘅囝Fó珍寶。 唔好忽視佢哋。

G =付出嘅比足夠嘅多。 激勵和自我完善工作上係喺邊度發生緊嘅? 喺屋企? 在學校? 当你喺做事上付出額外嘅努力時。

堅持你的夢想。 佢哋可能會喺嗰度晃動片刻,但呢啲小星星將係你嘅驅動力。

我忽略那些試圖摧毀你嘅人。 唔好畀人得到最好嘅你。 遠離有毒嘅人——那種憎聽到你成功嘅消息嘅朋友。

J =做你自己吧。 成功嘅關鍵係做你自己。 失敗嘅關鍵就係努力取悅每一個人。

無論生活看起來多麼艱難,都繼續努力。 当一個人有動力時,佢最終睇到一種嚴酷的生活終於結束了,為自我完善鋪平了道路。

學會愛自己。 而家唔係咁易咩?

M =讓事情發生。 動機係当你嘅夢想被擺入工作服上。

N =從不說謊、欺騙或偷竊。 成日玩一個公平嘅遊戲。

睜開你的眼。 人們應該學習馬嘅態度同馬感。 他們從兩個方面看事情——他們希望事情如何,以及他們應該如何。

P =練習令完美。 實踐就係動力。 它讓我們學習如何從錯誤中恢復過來的劇目和方法。

Q =退出者永遠唔會贏。 勝利者從不放棄。 那麼,選擇你的命運——你會成為一個戒煙者嗎? 還是贏家?

R =準備好自己。 動機也是關於準備。 我哋必須聽到我哋當中嘅小聲音,話畀我哋喺人哋企起身之前開始,並試圖將我哋推來推去。 記得,挪亞造方舟嘅時候冇落雨。

S =停止拖延。
T =控制你的生活。 紀律或自我控制與動機同義。 兩者都係自我完善嘅關鍵因素。

U =理解他人。 如果你很清楚如何說話,你也應該學會如何傾聽。 去理解先,第二個要懂。

V =可視化它。 冇遠見嘅動機就好似一條旱地上嘅船。
W =比什麼都更想要它。 發夢意味住信。 相信係植根於動機和自我完善嘅根源嘅嘢。

X = X因子會使你与众不同。 当你有動力時,你往往會把”額外”放喺你嘅生活上,比如額外嘅家庭時間,額外嘅工作幫助,對朋友嘅額外照顧,等等。

Y =你獨一無二。 呢個世界上沒有人像你一樣睇、做或講話。 珍惜你的生命同存在,因為你只打算花一次。

Z =零在你的夢想,去為它!!!

Don’t Have Enough Motivation

Finding the thing that motivates you is one thing, it is quite another to stick with it. And even while you have already succeeded in identifying what motivates you, the temptation to give in to more convenient, easier things like procrastination are much more powerful than getting yourself up and going.

Identify that lacking motivation or deliberately making yourself feel demotivated is a bad habit. Something isn’t quite right when you refuse to wake up on time to get to your office.
Or, when you allow yourself to be overwhelmed by the power of procrastination when you have deadlines to beat.

You know that something is going wrong inside you when the task you have to finish several days ago, sits idly on your desk, untouched. And something is not right when you can’t even force yourself to confront a problem that has been gnawing your will to live fully.

You lack even the motivation to accept that you are not motivated. So how do you build your motivation from the ground up? Start with…

Identifying the things that sap out your motivation. It always starts with very simple things in a very natural manner.

Then it starts to affect the other aspects of your life, which are not entirely connected with the thing that triggered your lack of motivation.

Maybe you just didn’t feel like getting up after your alarm rung off one morning. The next day, you did the same thing and on and on until you developed the bad habit of not feeling motivated to do anything.

The first effective step to gaining back your sense of motivation is to figure out the thing or things that sap the energy out of you. It could be a small thing like not waking up in time or a really serious thing like hating everything about your job.

No matter what the form, you can identify the things that sap out your energy by their power to make you feel discouraged.

Start with the sample exercise of listing down the areas in your life where you find no motivation to pursue at all and the particular things which you think makes you feel disheartened.

This will help you gain some perspective on the entire issue. You can even derive solutions in simply knowing the cause. This will shed clarity on your issues with motivation.

Then you can move on to evaluating the risks and benefits of not feeling motivated. Believe us, there are benefits to having no motivation – immediate self-gratification in the form of rest for one.
And there are risks, for sure. Plenty of them. And the risks oftentimes outweigh the benefits. Discovering the risks and benefits of not feeling motivated could be very enlightening.
In general, you would realize that it is never worth it to procrastinate, to give in to the temptation of hating to move a finger to finish your tasks, or to deliberately believe that it is much more gratifying to lie around and do nothing.
Finally, commit yourself to change. This is not easy, it never was. But try to set the date for mustering your sense of motivation.

 

Problems Staying Motivated?

Most of us have love-hate relationship with motivation. We need to get motivated all the time but we always find it hard to get out of our comfort zones and get ourselves working.

We like to feel motivated but we hate the process of prodding ourselves into doing what we are supposed to be doing or finishing what we have already started.

Motivation is a hard to pin down thing. What few people realize though is that while it may be hard to pin down at times, there are plenty of things one can do to muster enough motivation to get yourself going.

Quit the debate:
The battle always starts in the head. It begins ten to five minutes before you start doing the thing you have to do – whether it’s a task, a business plan, a goal.

In the normal course of hesitating to do your task, one part of your head tries to talk you into doing it. It is immediately followed by a voice that talks you out of it.

This process goes on until you decide to follow either of the two voices. Abandon the task and live with the uneasy, guilty feeling or finish it and feel satisfied.

The right choice is obvious, but the immediate convenience of the ‘easy way out’ presents make it very enticing.

Try not to prolong the debate:
The longer it goes on, the more difficult it will be for you to begin and finish your task, the less motivated you will feel. This mental chatter is an absolute motivation killer.

Find your inspiration:
Inspiration almost always comes out of nowhere. It is funny how one can feel inspired by simply listening to the rhythm of the falling rain or by simply watching little children play. It is amazing how a witty line from a poem can enlighten your mind and your mood.

It is never fully clear why these things happen, but it is evident that they happen all the time. When lacking the inspiration to get off your butt and do your work, try to look at the most unassuming places and see if something inside you will react. Don’t push it, though.

Inspiration is a sudden occurrence; it can never be manufactured. It comes when the time is ripe.

Take a break:
Exhaustion can kill your mood, not to mention lower your motivation level. There is enough time in the world to do and finish everything you have to do so don’t race against time. Always take the time to reward yourself with some sunshine and warm bath.

Or with some relaxing minutes under the trees or in your bed. However, you do it, just try to have the faith that once you get back to the drawing board, your mind is already geared to be productive. Don’t be afraid to take some time off and reward yourself with rest.

Enjoy the process
What are life and work if they are not enjoyed? Try to always find the purpose and happiness in everything you do, no matter how uninterested you are.

Getting Back on Track

Sometimes, all we need is something that can keep us motivated and get us back on track. We hope the following suggestions will do just that for you.

Appreciate failure
Many people find failure a bit too daunting. For them, failing on something – whether it’s a simple goal or a grand task – is enough to keep them from moving another finger. For successful people, failure is a teacher. It was difficult and demoralizing while they were at it. But in retrospect, there is always something that can be gained from failing.

Don’t get used to failing, though. Bounce back every time you fail and refrain from doing the things that had caused you to fail before. Build a string of success out of the many failures you’ve had.

Always finish what you have started
Whether it’s a goal, a project, a book, a movie, a song, or a sentence…always finish what you have started. Never quit on anything, no matter how insignificant the thing is. Quitting is a bad habit that supports procrastination and by extension, the extinguishable of motivation.

Give yourself some incentives
Accomplishments should always be rewarded. Reward could be anything from a 30-minute break from work or a one-week vacation in a tropical island. No matter how small or big your accomplishments are, always try to give yourself some reward. Having something to work for or to look forward to always work to spark the drive that is often dormant inside you.

Write down your ideas
No matter how stupid or nonsensical your ideas may seem, they are still ideas and they can inspire you to think further. When lacking in motivation, the simple act of scribbling can trigger a part in your brain to be creative, driven, and imaginative.

Be attuned with your emotions
Don’t be overwhelmed by negative emotions such as the feeling of hopelessness, defeat or struggle. Try to channel your emotions to something more positive such as getting ahead with your work or finishing the task at hand.

Define your motivation
What motivates you? A better life? An accomplished task? A sense of achievement? People have different definitions for motivation. Define yours. Then, begin working for it.

Kick that avoidance attitude
A small percentage of people are allergic to doing something productive. They prefer to lie idle on the couch while killing their time over a movie marathon. That kind of existence is miserable.
It lacks direction and definitely lacks that something that can make life a bit more exciting.
Not that they have nothing better to do, but because they lack the drive not to avoid the things they need and must do.
If you feel that you are leaning towards the avoidance attitude, immediately move yourself out of that rut.

Connect with people
Living in isolation? It is becoming more common nowadays to lose connection with the rest of the world because work is shifting from office setting to home setting. Even while social networking sites are doing their best to make you feel connected, nothing still beats the good old fashioned face-to-face interaction.

So, go out, talk to your pals, connect with people and be inspired.

Motivation: Some Simple Rules

You can drag yourself up the same way you can drag yourself down. It is a choice you have to make every, single day.

Whenever you are faced with this conflict of choices, bring with you these tiny nuggets of wisdom on motivation.

Never mind that you’re not this or that.
It all begins with little excuses like ‘I don’t feel good’, ‘I am not that smart’, ‘I don’t have enough faith in myself’. Then you start believing in these things like they are written in stone, then these negative beliefs become a part of your system, a part of who you are.
Don’t give a second’s worth of recognition on these negative self-talks. Whenever you hear that part of your brain tell you things that can pull you down, shut it out and listen to that less powerful, but oftentimes ignored voice that says ‘you can!’.

Try to have a little faith.
In yourself, in what you can do, and the things you believe in. It doesn’t matter if you fail, everyone goes through that hurtful process. What matters is that every time you do, you bounce back, rebuild yourself, and give the world a better you.

Be very careful when choosing your side.
You can either talk yourself into doing the task or not, which means you can either be a part of success that one part of your head says you can be, or take part in the downfall the other side of your head tries to go to. Always take that side of your brain that believes in you, that cares about your well-being, and pushes you to be the person you are trying to be.

Try to win the debate with yourself every time. Remember that sometimes, the act of doing something is not really difficult. It’s the few minutes of mental chatter leading up to doing the act.

Hold on to that something that matters to you.
There is nothing more meaningful in life than that something that we dearly hold on to. Some people call it their passion, others call it their cause. What do you call yours?
Cause, passion, or whatever it is that propels your inner drive to accomplish something is a very powerful source of motivation.

It never runs dry. It flows so long as you hold on to that thing you care about. Sometimes, it is what makes people do the impossible in the face of difficulties. And it is that thing that gives them the courage to face and get through the biggest difficulties life throws at them.

Dream big.
Big dreams inspire. It makes people work harder, with even more passion. What would happen to people if they have nothing to shoot for? Nothing. If there are no Olympic medals and several hundred Olympians to compete against, the champions will never exist. If Mount Everest is not the highest mountain, there will be no mountaineers and hikers who struggle everyday to reach the peak.

If you don’t dream big, you would stay forever in that nook of the world where everything is mediocre, where sense of achievement is an abstract concept, and where success is all but nonexistent.

Compete with yourself.
Competing with others is good, but oftentimes it is sure-fire way to demotivate yourself because you will start to compare yourself with others each and every time. Run your own, personal race.

How many times have you heard the saying, “you are your worst enemy”?

Winning The Battle In Your Head

Motivation is a funny, complex thing.

The thing that motivates one person is always different from that of another even though they are working for the same thing. And while people can motivate other people, they can only do so to a certain degree. At the end of the day, you still have to work out a way to get yourself moving.

But when everything looks bleak and all you want to do is to surrender, from where do you muster the will to go on?

Begin with winning the battle in your head.

The battle always starts in the head. One part of your brain tells you to move, work, and strive for what you are working for. The other part tells you that it is foolish. It is always easier to listen to the latter, because it is more convenient, less taxing, and easier to do. The former forces you to act and work.

All things equal, people always choose the less inconvenient, easy way out. But this isn’t always the better choice. In fact, it is never a good choice.

What separates very effective people from those who are not is their ability to always make the right choices most of the time, even if these choices are the hardest to make. They know how the game works and they try to beat it every single time.

Exhausting, yes, but it is also gratifying. There is always a sense of satisfaction in defeating your worst enemy – yourself.

But how do you win the battle that goes on inside your head?

Understand your thoughts and how they affect your emotions and your will power. Negative thoughts can easily kill your sense of purpose. It comes in many forms – lack of self-confidence, general negativity, lack of belief in others, procrastination and the list goes on.

Each of these has the power to convince you to throw in the towel and accept that you can’t carry on. Identifying each of your negative thoughts is the first step to winning yourself back from a defeatist attitude.

It is not simple feat, though. It takes time before one can shut out the voice in the head that says ‘give up, give in’. And sometimes, even when you have already succeeded in neutralizing your negative thoughts, it is still easy to give up at the first sign of a speed bump.

After all, it gives you time to rest from the unending struggle to achieve whatever it is you are pursuing, even for just a moment. But don’t buy that. That short period of rest can turn to days, weeks, months, years, ultimately paralyzing you from taking action and living a full life.

That’s the characteristic of discouragement. It offers you immediate gratification without securing anything in return.

Try to gain positive momentum every time, instead of succumbing back into a demoralized attitude.

Every time, even if that means you have to start the battle in your head all over again.
