The first motivation
We all know what is right, what is wrong,what we must do and what we Mustn’t. But then looking at so few successful people around us its surprising that so many of us know what to do but still don’t do it? why is it such way??
There are thousands of books,videos and money back tutorials out there then why only 1-2% people successful???
We’ll try to find out answer to these question below and if you want to directly move to Motivational stories then select category from menu…
What holds us back….
How many of you just moan and sigh and complain about their jobs or their colleges or just their current situation.”I’m sick and tired of these job” but never do anything about it.Well….that’s most of you.
We want success but what we actually want is success without doing anything .And that is THE problem . It’s a trouble because in order to be successful , we need first be willing to achieve whatever it takes . That signifies we must be willing to tolerate any level of suffering before achieving the desired goal .
Success without commitment is impossible.
If you are one of them then don’t worry ,you are not alone. In fact its basic human nature to be comfortable with routines and avoid pain.The key to having the power of motivation work for you is to control the two most basic experiences humans have – pain, and pleasure. When you willmanagement pain and pleasure,
you can follow through on the necessary process of achieving a goal. Any time you fail to achieve a goal it’s because you have pain and pleasure working against you. So just shake your comfort zone .Of course we don’t want too much of discomfort otherwise that pain will only paralyse you instead of taking actual action.
The wealthiest place on earth is not the gold or diamond mines but it’s the graveyard.Because there we will find inventions that never where exposed to.Ideas and dreams that never became reality.Hopes and aspirations that were never actively applied.
And these all happened because of “LACK of ACTION”.
LACK OF DESIRE(self-doubt)
Action is necessary but with that you need strong desire
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.
All great success will start with action to a idea, but to keep it burning we must fuel it with desire.One thing that you can do to increase desire is “set a trap”.Consider this instance.
Once a casino manager wanted to quit smoking.He knew that its impossible for him with so little desire.
So what he did was he wrote outside his casino “catch me smoking and get one million”.What happened is unknown but you can create similar traps for yourself.Like to start your own business you may sign resignation letter(If you can live with that).
If we want to succeed then we must control fear that causes self doubting which quickly reduces our desire.The key to tapping into the power of motivation is to have a radical awakening to what prevents us from achieving success, and then to have the requisite desire to overcoming these barriers.
We are often lost in helplessness and self doubt.Doubt that weather we can achieve it or not? We lack the confidence to even start when we have no desire for something.
For that you must have compelling Reasons that will overpower your self doubts
Motivation can be understood by nature of desires.There are two types of it..1]desire of pleasure and 2]desire to avoid pain.Desire to avoid pain [procrastination] is stronger one.So its essential to use fear for our benefit.
The power of fear has two outcomes on you
1]Prevents taking any action:-This is how the power of motivation works against us. As long as we are self doubting, we hesitate to take action. Unless you’reable to overcome your worry of failure, you will naturally not progress from you present circumstances.
2]Motivates you to take action: In the same way that fear of failure prevents you from taking action, it can also help you to move towards your major goals. The process is one in which you keep the commitments that you make to yourself. It is one thingthat resembles a private contract with yourself. What is vitalto notice at now is that worryisn’tcontinuallyenfeebling, if properly controlled it are often a positive force in your life.
It’s important to use fear to sustain motivation and not against us.
Fight your fear and you’ll be lost in battle forever.
Face your fear and you are free
What we must do
Set a clear goal(discovering life purpose)
Michael Bolduc had said in his book that .”Everything is created twice. Once in our imagination and once in reality”.And its absolutely true.Just think about it…It’s impossible to reach a destination if we don’t know the destination itself!!
It does’t matter if we reach that goal or not the key here is trying and again trying.Sometimes the journey itself is so great and beautiful that it won’t even bother if we reach our destination.
If it’s good,it’s great.If it’s bad,it’s experience.
If you don’t know you life purpose then there TED’s video which you should watch.below is the transcribed video in short.
answer each question below.
1]What you really like to do:-what is that one thing that you feel overqualified and ready to teach anyone any time.
2]Who do you do it for.
3]What do they want or need so that they come to you.
4]How did they transform as a result of what you gave to them.
That’s it..now next someone ask’s about what you do just tell them last answer you gave [i.e. fourth one] .like I may say I share information with people since I’m a b logger.
