What Do You Want From Life? What do not you want? Most of us would like to reflect, but we can not motivate ourselves to go to the gym. Many of us are going to start a business, but we will never get to design a realistic plan. Without being able to self-motivate, we are in the grace of our whim and emotional state, as well as our external circumstances. How can we achieve things in our lives if we are unmotivated?
Motivation itself is very difficult, even with the smallest thing. It is now impossible to make it impossible for them to motivate themselves to go out of bed only from the cold morning. If such a small task can prove such a fight, it is no wonder that higher goals may seem completely unrealistic. I understand why people see the motivation in this expression, but it's simply not true.
I'm going to give you a secret, the goal motivates you in proportion to the rewards. If I tell you, a cup of coffee is waiting for you when you get it. Realistically, however, you are accustomed to it, and there is not enough incentive to really care about it. The controlling factors in this situation are secular and low-value rewards, coupled with a short-term demonstration point. If I told you that you could get an extra $ 100 on that day or week half an hour earlier, I'd accept it to be much sharper. Or if I say half an hour before a week or so, when you can do whatever you want and surround your money, you're going to bed. I'm right?
You know, time sensation is very important. Short-term prospects for your activity limit your self-motivation. However, long-term prospects for change of life seem unrealistic and will be avoided. If someone told you never to eat (place your favorite food here), you will immediately tell it as not feasible. If, however, someone says you lose ten kilos, if you avoid this food thirty days, you may be more willing to try.
Achieving action is a sufficient reward
Long-term view of the consequences of committing / failing to take the necessary steps
If you apply these three motivational rules and apply them to your specific circumstances. Motivation is a very complex topic, but without recognizing these factors, I do not think you are able to take any motivational approach to its full potential.
There are, however, other factors that can override the other three primary motivators. The fear of failure or success, sometimes called perfectionist, means that we do not want to deal with a task because it is overwhelmed by inadequate functioning. We do not want to try it yet, because it seems too big for the too complicated, too hard solution.
The secondary, restrictive factors of the complexity of the task and the importance of the task are harder to overcome and frustrate many people. With regard to the size and complexity of a task, I can only recommend this advice, let the task be reduced to the smallest possible components, then focus on the first task and give everything.
The limiting nature of fear of perfectionism or consequences is harder to overcome. I offer two things here. First, start the task slowly, this will allow you to get used to the task. Secondly, someone once said if something worthwhile was worth doing wrong. Often, the task is not much bigger than bad.
However, in our minds, if we do not do a task, it means we still have a chance to be perfectly able to do it in the future. We often deceive ourselves. If you feel worried about how well you will live, you must remove all thoughts and start the task immediately. No matter how long you have left it, you will not be significantly better, at least not enough to make a valuable difference. You can get much more from completing the task on a quality quality level, then looking back and learning about the future.
Try to keep the three keys and the limiting factors in mind when you need to motivate yourself next.
