How to get motivation…

…for what you know you need to do is a problem you, like many others may have.

Is there a project or a goal in your life that you are failing to achieve? What is the main reason for this? Is it a lack of motivation?

If so, then we are about to go over 3 ways that will first get you motivated, then keep you on track once you’ve started and finally we’ll enhance your motivation to make sure you succeed in the future.

Of course, the first thing we need to do is get started…

Getting Motivation

It’s nearly impossible to become motivated about anything unless you know WHY it is you’re doing what you’re doing. You would never get out of bed if you didn’t have a reason.

Think about it. If you cook breakfast in the morning, you know why you’re doing that. It might be because you’re hungry, or you want to fuel yourself for the day ahead, whatever it is. You know why you’re cooking breakfast. You have a reason. That is what gives you the motivation to make the breakfast. I know this seems like a simplistic metaphor, but it makes sense doesn’t it?

And if you want to get motivated to do absolutely anything, you must know why you are doing it.

If you need motivation to exercise, why are you exercising? Is it for health reasons? Is it to look good? The answer is of course always yours and yours alone, but you must know the answer. You must know your why. That is the first step to getting motivated. So once you’ve managed to get motivated, then what? Well you must tackle the age old problem of…

Staying Motivated

One of the biggest mistakes that people make once they’ve actually got something up and running is that they don’t take the time to recognize what they’ve already achieved.

You MUST take the time to celebrate your success.

If you don’t, then you’re unlikely to get the motivation to continue because your brain automatically wants you to take part in enjoyable activities. And if you don’t attach good feelings to what you’re doing, your brain will automatically try to get you to do something else.

However, I have good news. You can actually train your brain to help you to stay motivated. All you need to do is take the time to notice what you’ve already achieved, and feel good about it. Every day make sure you find at least one thing that you did the previous day that you can feel good about and celebrate.

Again, it sounds simplistic, but this is a really, really powerful technique.

So now we know how to get motivated, and we know the main technique for staying motivated, is there anything else we can do? I’m glad you asked. We can start to use some other…

Self Motivation Techniques

There are many, many self motivation techniques out there. And to be honest, it all depends on the person or individual as to how well they work. Just because one person says that doing this thing will work, doesn’t mean that it will work for you.

You need to understand what triggers your own motivation. What is it that makes you do what you do? I know it’s an old saying, but it’s a true one, when you’re born, you don’t come with a user’s manual. So it’s up to you to find out how you work.

Think about a time when you’ve been motivated in the past. What was it that got you motivated in the first place? What was it that kept you going when in other situations, you may have given up? Answering these questions will give you a better understanding of how you actually work. Not what other people say you should do. Only you know how it should be done.

Summary

So you’ve learnt a technique for getting motivated when you’re starting something new, you’ve also find out the best way to keep that motivation going once you’re up and running and you should now always be on the lookout for things to help you get and stay motivated and you should always be asking yourself how to get motivation?

The Power Of Your Words: Choose Them Carefully

Power Of Your Words

The Power Of Your Words To Influence Your Life

If you’re the kind of person who is constantly bringing themselves down, both in the conversations in your head as well as with others, then once you’ve finished this post, you’re going to realize why it’s so important to take control of your words.

The Power Of Your Words

Words have a huge effect on our moods, and therefore our motivation. If you are beginning a task and you start with the words in your head saying…”there’s no way I can do this” or “who am I kidding? I’m not the kind of person who succeeds in this type of thing”, then of course you’re destined to fail before you even start.

You MUST take control of how you think. Switch those negative words in your head to positive words and you’re giving yourself the best possible chance at succeeding.

Be Careful What You Say…

It’s the same with the words you say out loud. How many times have you been talking to a friend or family member and not wanting to sound big headed or arrogant, you’ve talked down your achievements? It’s happened to nearly all of us. I know I’ve certainly been guilty of this in the past.

Here’s the thing…talking down your success is without doubt, the absolute worst thing you can do for your self esteem, your confidence and your motivation. Why on earth would your mind, who is controlling everything you do after all, why would it get all excited, pumped up and motivated to achieve your next goal, if it hears you talking to others in a negative way or bringing the achievement down.

Imagine what your mind would think…”Oh well that’s great isn’t it. All that work on getting you motivated and making you follow through to reach your goals and this is how you react. Why should I bother?” And your mind has a point.

Summary

Remember, words have power. Make sure you think and talk with pride about your achievements. That obviously doesn’t mean you should turn into an arrogant boaster, of course not. But if you can talk about what you’ve achieved to others with pride and satisfaction, using strong, powerful words then you’ll be keeping both you and your mind happy, which then of course means more motivation and success for you in the future.

Staying Motivated: 3 Surefire Ways To Keep On Track

Staying motivated can be a struggle, and if you’re finding it difficult to even get motivated for whatever it is you need to do, then try following the tips in this article and I’m sure they’ll help you just as much as they’ve helped me and many others.

I’ll be sharing with you the importance of creating systems, how to get and keep interested in what you’re doing and the big secret on how to achieve anything you want.

So let’s get to it…

Staying Motivated Through Systems

Setting up systems is one of the best ways to stay motivated.

Okay, I know that it doesn’t sound very glamorous, but if you study the people who are REALLY successful, you’ll notice that they ALL have some sort of success system in place. It’s an absolutely essential part of creating the life you desire.

One big thing you can do is to plan your day the night before.

This is such a powerful technique that is all too often overlooked as being too simple. Don’t fall into this trap.

Plan your day in advance and you won’t have to spend the first part of it figuring out what to do next. In other words…you’ll be hitting the ground running.

Okay, now you’re organized and ready to take on the day.

The next thing you need is to…

Be Passionate

One of the best tips to stay motivated I can give you is to be passionate.

It goes without saying that if you’re passionate about something, you’re going to find it much easier to get yourself motivated to get up and do it.

But what if the task in front of you is something you just can’t stand?

You’d do absolutely anything to put off or avoid doing it.

Well, here’s a distinction to remember…losers focus on pleasurable activities…while winners focus on pleasurable results.

In other words, there’s always going to be a time when in the pursuit of your goal, you’re going to arrive at something you’d rather avoid.

It’s ESSENTIAL at this time that you concentrate on the long term desired result rather than the short term task in front of you.

This sounds both obvious and simple, but ask yourself honestly, when this happens to you, do you focus on the result?…or the task?

But what about when things are not only not fun, but not successful too?

Well, you need to remember that you must…

Always Bounce Back And Stay On Track

If you read about anybody in history who has discovered how to stay motivated and achieved great success, you’ll find that they didn’t get it their own way.

In fact, one of the things they always say they’re most proud of is the fact that no matter how tough things became, they never gave up.

Check on anybody you admire and you’ll find the same thing.

Success is never served to you on a plate, you have to go out and claim it.

That’s why you must always bounce back. If you fall at the first hurdle…or the second…or the third, you’re never going to get to the finish line never mind win.

As long as you stay on course, then you’re doing fine.

If hurdles come your way, jump over them, walk round them, whatever.

Just make sure you always bounce back and stay on track.

Summary

So now you know the important role that systems play in staying motivated in your life, also how to stay passionate about your daily tasks and what you must do if you’re to achieve anything life.

Put these into action in your life and you’ll find you’ll get motivated about your daily tasks easier than you ever have before.

As always, I’ve added my thoughts and success shortcut below the video.

Scott’s Success Shortcut

Here’s how to get the most from the Why is It Hard For Most People to Become Wealthy? video.

1 – You Must Know What’s Important To YOU: If you don’t, you’ll end up doing things that are not getting you to where you want to go. You’re REACTING to life instead of CREATING the life you want.

2 – Your Brain Must Know What To Concentrate On: When you focus, you’re telling your brain to get going with this and stop worrying about everything else. If you give your brain too much to think about, like anything else it will become overwhelmed and nothing will get done.

3 – Will You Know Success When It Arrives? What does being successful mean to you? A new car? Which model? A new house? Where and how big? Success might already be with you and you haven’t noticed.

4 – Be A Goal Achiever As Well As A Goal Setter: Don’t just set more and more goals. Take the time to achieve the ones you already have.

Action Exercise:

Step 1: Decide what is most important to you. Is it your health? Do you need to lose weight? Eat more healthy foods? take exercise? Is it financial? Would making more money make the biggest difference in your life?
