Motivation

Need motivation? Here are three key ways of pumping up your life:


Target 1: Focus on what thrills you!

Motivation is about excitement. To be motivated in life you have to focus on what thrills you.

If you face a motivation gap, focus first on your passion.

When you take action out of motivation, you build up emotional fuel, emotional reserves. If you prioritize your life around what truly matters to you, you will see your motivation rise in a very spectacular way.

Are you excited about your goals?

Are you doing this for yourself or for others?

Let go of shoulds!

Take a white page and write down 10 things you would feel excited in doing.


Target 2: Identify what is draining you

Everything is energy in and around us. Some activities, behaviors, locations tend to drain us; some others pump us up.

We are bombarded by millions of psychic impressions every day. Our being is a vast system digesting and integrating new energies every day.

Check your environment: is anything draining your energy or your motivation? It can a demanding partner who puts you down. It can be this colleague at work which does not show respect. It can be a draining friend.

Spend more time with those who believe in you and stay away from those who drain you.

How much more do you want to give up before you say: Enough! Develop clear boundaries and give when you want to give, not when you are forced to.

Design your environment to support your goals.

Build clear boundaries to protect your mind and personal space. learn to say "No", "maybe", "Later, not now".


Target 3: Take action

Doubts, fears, hesitations are closed doors. They are what holds you back. When you listen to your doubts and fears, you are holding back from life. You are feeding inaction and passivity. To break that cycle you have to take action. Start by small steps. The first thing that comes to your mind.

Aim for good not perfect.

See any mistake as a learning experience.

Shift your mind and start loving risk rather than avoiding it. "I love risk!" "Any challenge is an opportunity to grow"

Action is what brings you from where you are to where you want to be.

Why does action give you motivation? Because action gives you life. The moment you take action you are bringing in your natural power, abilities and stimulating your body and mind. Action means life.
Enjoy!
