Motivation is the driving force behind life-enhancing change. The reason or reasons for acting or behaving in a particular way. It comes from knowing precisely what you want to do. Therefore having an insatiable, burning desire to do all that is necessary to get it.
Motivation keeps your dream on track as it is the power of motivation that keeps you going when the going gets tough.
“The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.”
1. Create a picture/vision board and fill it with images of your desired goals.
Make sure that you will be able to see this picture/ vision board every day.
“As soon as you start to feel different about what you already have, you will start to attract more of the good things.“
Dr Joe Vitale
- The car you want to own,
- The house you want to live in,
- The area where you want to live.
Others images could be of
- Holiday destinations,
- First-class travel tickets,
- Clothes you want to buy,
- Fine restaurants you want to frequent and
- Whatever you can think of that gets your pulse racing.
2. GET ANGRY.
By getting angry about where you are right, now can motivate you to make the necessary changes to achieve the goals you have set.
“The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”
The worst thing you can do to make sure you achieve your goals is to have a blaze attitude towards any change that is needed.
- Why do I want to change?
- Is it because you FED UP with debts?
- Does your job DRIVE YOU CRAZY?
- Is your life DULL AND PREDICTABLE?
- Are you SICK AND TIRED of doing the same thing week in week out?
- Are you BORED BEYOND BELIEF by the dull, uninspiring, unhappy people you associate with?
If so THEN GET ANGRY ABOUT IT. And I mean REAL ANGRY.
Write down, all of the frustrating, unrewarding, miserable feelings and attitudes that makes every day a dull slog.
Then ask yourself “IS THAT WHAT I WANT?”
3. Appreciate the value of the time you have on this earth.
The older we get the more value we tend to give to the time we have left. Time is the most valuable and precious resource we have and it is a non-renewable resource.
“Time is free, but its priceless
You can’t own it, but you can use it
You can’t keep it, but you can spend it
Once you’ve lost it, you can never get it back.”
We all have the choice to either use our time fully or waste it. However, if you want to make any change you are going to have to invest your time in making the changes you want.
Ways you can start using your time better and reduce activities that steal your time are
- Weekends spent shopping,
- Dining out,
- Visiting relatives and friends.
These are the activities that will stealthily steal your time and prevent you from achieving your goals.
Instead, invest this time, on yourself and your goals.
Remember: Your time on earth is finite. Nobody knows how much time they have. What counts is how you use the time you have. So make your time count, and that means starting from right NOW.
4. Conformity. Are you a mindless little sheep who’s way too timid to pursue your way?
Do you have to follow where everyone else goes, doing exactly what everyone else does and therefore, who gets the same levels of happiness as all the other little sheep?
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“I think the reward for conformity is that everyone likes you except yourself.”
Rita Mae Brown
Seriously, does this describe YOU? Are you too frightened to be different than all of the other sheep because they wouldn’t like it if you decided to follow a different path?
So you dutifully trot along following all the other sheep because if they’re doing it, then that’s how it is right? But if you do what everyone else does, you’ll get what everyone else gets.
Do you want to be a mindless, timid little sheep who blindly follows all the other sheep?
Or do you want to be a leader, a warrior who possesses the courage to be uniquely you and to do what you want to do and make your dreams happen?
If so, then this means you have to be more like a tiger than a sheep. Do you want to be a sheep? I mean, haven’t we got enough sheep already?
5. Fight your fear.
Fear is the force that is determined to stop you in your tracks and rob your dreams from you. But it can only do this if you let it.
Are you going to let this cruel, destructive charlatan trample on your dreams, steal your happiness and crush your spirit?
“It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.”
Imagine this thought haunting your final days:
“I didn’t do the things I wanted because I was too frightened to live”.
And by then, it’ll be far too late to conquer fear. Refuse to let fear spoil your life and start taking action now!
