Benefits of Being Motivated

Benefits of Being Motivated

By Marie Christine Francisco Sy

Motivation is one key for us to be able to achieve our goals. A thrill or strength of mind can likewise be associated as a reason for one to strive harder in hitting a goal whether it's professional or personal areas in life.
When we become older, motivational keys also differ. A goal that has been hit makes one eager to reach another one. Hence, motivation is a needed by everyone.
There are times that we become so down or face a difficult problem in life. This is the best time to think about the cause for this and look back what factors that can motivates us back.
The two main kinds of motivation is the intrinsic and extrinsic type. We can only say that it is intrinsic when it goes out from within. It does not rely on external drives. It is found on the undertaking itself and the pleasure it gives.
In contrast to that is the extrinsic kind of motivation. It is deriving from outside causes for instance, gifts, medal, trophy, money, or any other thing that gives encouragement for one to win most likely on competitions. The fun and fulfillment one feels were evidently not present on the task itself.
How can we become motivated constantly? An exceptionally constant motivational factor must be present in us. It causes one to be very successful in life.
Different kinds of helpful things make us very motivated at times. There should be determination of short-term or long-term goal for you to gain achievable outcomes visibly.
Rewards that are enjoyable make us more enthusiastic and relentless enough. Usually, for people who were on a multi-tasking job, a deadline becomes one of their motivational factors. The kind of value and appreciation that a company gives to his employees is also an example of keeping them motivated.
Companies should also be responsible for their employee's motivation. As a result, tough payback is clearly seen on highly motivated employees. The company itself becomes an agency and society of achievers. Staffs become productive and business grows favourably as an outcome.
The rate of turnover is reducing because it attracts adept people and thereby keeping them also in the company. One can say that his office is a motivating place when it provides more opportunities to them and increase their knowledge as well.
Motivation is usually found in a company where their staffs are looked up as cherished beings. So, we can easily reach the goals in life whether long-term or short-term if we see motivation as a tool towards it.
One must read inspirational stories like The Richest Man in Babylon, in order to uphold the broad meaning of motivation.
A change of life's perspective becomes evident if we fully read the stories and apply it personally in our lives.
Encounter an amazing story of The Richest Man In Babylon found in a sequence of inspiring volume at no cost at all.

Get Scheduled!

Get Scheduled!

By Michael Wess

Studies in the field of neuroscience have shown that "will power" and probably "decision making" in general are illusions. When we become conscious of making a decision, the action potential has already occurred, which is to say, that the physical body acts first, then the mind becomes conscious of making a "decision". If we think of the mind in an integral sense, of transcending and including the physical body, this makes perfect sense. The significance of this though is quite profound, for it means that our decisions and actions are determined by dynamic behavioural patterns, which is really what the "I" of consciousness is.
We have all well-intended at one time or another that we are going to be productive on the weekend, maybe get some office work done, write a piece of music, or do some house maintenance; but it just doesn't get done. We sit down, read the newspaper for 15 mins, then talk to a friend, perhaps go for a walk, and so on, until the day has past. This is because when we think of the weekend, its an abstract object presented in our minds, and as mental abstraction, we never actually experience "the weekend"; what we do experience is one moment, then another moment, then another moment. It seems ridiculous to us after the fact that we didn't get anything done, I mean, we had the whole day. If we do understand that decision is an illusion however, and that the "weekend" really is just a succession of moments, then it becomes apparent that in each moment that past, there was no behavioural directive to take such an action. Alternative actions, such as reading the newspaper, feel more comfortable, there was less tension, less resistance to such action. The corresponding cognitive impression, such as, "reading the paper is a small distraction, afterwards I will..." is of secondary concern, as its the conditioned behavioural patterning that determines action, yet of course we only concern ourselves with the cognitive phenomena.
There is a saying in zen monasteries, which is, "the schedule is your first teacher." Think about it, when are you the most productive, when do you follow through the most on your intentions? Invariably, after thinking on this question, you will conclude that it is precisely during times which are scheduled.
When we act based on a schedule, the action is unconscious, there is no tension in our awareness, nothing to feel better than the desired action. If I go to the gym at 6:30 am everyday, I won't think "should I go today", or "when should I go", I just grab my training gear and head out the door. Compare this to if I set an intention, "I will go to the gym tomorrow". At 6:30am the next morning I decide to have a cup of tea, I then think about when I should go to the gym, and this thought is now meeting conscious resistance, my apartment is warm, drinking the tea is relaxing and at this moment, I just don't feel like going to the gym. Maybe I decide that I really don't need to go today, maybe its better if I went to the office earlier, or relaxed a bit more, after all, I didn't sleep well last night, or whatever.
Now, I used the words "decide" quite a few times in this article, its really awkward to think of it differently, even when of course we know its an illusion, the fact is, this is how we evaluate our actions and fail to understand why we always fail in our intentions, why we can't get focused. With understanding that our "decisions" are dynamic behavioural patterns, we can clearly see that as we have not created a strong behavioural pattern to perform a given action, it thus doesn't occur. Especially when these actions are up against well developed behavioural patterns of: sitting on the couch; drinking tea; reading the newspaper; checking Facebook etc. Its not that we are weak-willed, un-disciplined slackers; its that we have no will and are going with the flow. If you want to perform a given action, then there is no need for discipline or motivation, simply behaviourally condition yourself to do the action, without fail, at the exact same time everyday for a minimum of 21 days, it will then be nearly effortless.

Motivation Comes From Doing

Motivation Comes From Doing

By June Hunter

When a person wants to lose weight, quit smoking, or hit some other goal they aspire to, they tend to look for motivation from outside sources. I think when we do this we are looking more for inspiration, as opposed to motivation. There's a difference. The difference is clearly that inspiration comes from outside sources. When we hear the person on the bus talking about how they kicked their smoking habit, or graduated from college, or got the promotion in the company. We tend to feel inspired by people's stories. This is good because we can take from their stories and experiences and apply it to ourselves in our own lives.
What we tend to find however is that the inspiration we draw from those experiences will only take us so far. Sometimes it doesn't take us anywhere because we don't take any action. When we do take action that is when we find that things really start to happen. We start to find that the daily brisk walk starts to make us feel better. We notice we're a little less stressed after the walk. If we stick with it we start to feel our energy increase after a few weeks, and we may even start to feel our clothes are a little loser. This motivates us to go a little farther, push a little harder. The cycles continues until before we know it we're in the gym working out four or five days a week. But to get to that point we have to take action. The actions give us the motivation, and give us the drive to get the needed momentum going.
I know people who for years keep saying they want to accomplish all of these wonderful goals, but they never take a step to achieve them outside of reading a journal or an article. They get psyched up about it and for whatever reason they abandon the idea. That's usually because either they don't feel that it will work for them, or they are afraid to fail. Another theory is that when people find an answer to their problem they feel happy. This satisfies our minds sometimes by making us feel good, and we just don't bother to take action. Inevitably we will go looking for an answer again at another time after the initial good feelings wear off. In order to stop this vicious cycle we need to make a goal, put a plan in place for that goal, and finally follow through and begin to take action.
So what do you need to do to set your goals in motion? Here's a checklist to get you started:

  • Write your goal down. Be very clear and specific about exactly what it is you wish to accomplish.
  • Think of all of the ways you could accomplish your goal. Do a little research, talk to others about it, draw ideas from whatever source you can. Recruit whatever support you need in the way of friends and acquaintances. Join forums or online groups and seek out support.
  • Make a plan and stick to it. I cannot emphasize this part enough -- sticking to your plan no matter what obstacles come up is what is going to make or break you.
  • Finally, try your utmost to think about your goal in a positive sense, never in a negative way! Visualize what things will look like and feel the feelings you will when you've accomplished your goal. Think about it when you go to sleep at night, and when you wake in the morning.
The only sure way stay motivated is to keep doing whatever you need to do to accomplish whatever it is you want to do. Try to find inspiration, but remember that there is nothing like following through on your goals to give you the motivation to move on to the next thing. And remember it is there inside of you. It always has been and always will be.

Goal Clarity: It's Do or Die

Goal Clarity: It's Do or Die

By Corwin Smith

When I started college at Harvard University, I decided to challenge myself by setting multiple goals in a number of different areas to see if I could accomplish everything that I had been obsessing and dreaming about since my days as a high school freshman (This powerful process is what ultimately led to my joining the ranks of motivational college speakers around the world).
Since I loved aggressive sports my first goal was to win a slot on the Harvard Rugby Team and ultimately lead the team as its captain. It was crystal clear in my mind that rugby was going to be a major priority in college and I would focus an intense level of effort to the achievement of my dream.
At the same time, I wrote down in my personal ramblings a radically new objective: I decided that I wanted to start up and run a money making business out of my dorm room. Now at the time, I had absolutely no idea whatsoever what the nature of this new enterprise would be but I was so impressed by the legendary Harvard dropout Bill Gates, who founded Microsoft out of his dorm room that I felt obliged to model his success. Somehow I just knew that if I focused intensely on this objective the perfect product would appear.
I had a number of other personal, academic and relationship goals, but they were all secondary or designed to be supportive of my goal of becoming the team captain and running a successful business.
If I had to name one foundational rule; one core value crucial to the successful achievement of your goals I would tell you without hesitation that it is focus. You can never lose your focus. And the more focus the better.
Now I don't tell you this story to impress you but rather to show you my commitment to this process.
Clarity is Key
The first thing you need to achieve is absolute clarity as to the nature of your goal. Second, you must write the goal out in as much loving detail as possible. Leave out nothing! Play with the goal, think of all the pleasure its attainment is going to provide. Involve your feelings and mentally visualize the process as fun. For example, take time to sit back and visualize the goal as already having been achieved. Think about how you will feel; how you will look; hear what amazing things people will be saying about you.
And finally, you need to dwell on how the accomplishment of this goal is going to change your life for the better. In my research at this time, I learned that the subconscious brain cannot tell the difference between an intensely, powerfully defined dream and reality. As a result, I knew that my brain would be working twenty-four-seven to bring this goal into reality.
Set Achievement Milestones.
An important aspect of goal setting is setting achievable milestones. Since I was going to be in college for at least four years, I felt that by breaking my goals down into eight semesters it would allow for a decent period of time to show dramatic and measurable changes particularly if I set crystal clear goals in advance. For example, what overall physical conditioning goals would I have achieved by deadline: January 1st. What would I be bench pressing? Would I have achieved all my endurance goals? Am I generally considered to be the hardest-working, most committed, most supportive player on the team?
Conversely, if what I am doing is not bringing me closer to achieving my goals, I need to change my direction. This is not a failure or set-back, it is just a fact of life. Since I knew the outcome I desired, the solution to getting back on track was generally obvious to me.
The best way to envision this correction process is to compare it to a plane flying from Boston to San Francisco. Did you know that the plane is off course 90 percent of the time? If the pilot did not make constant corrections to her flight plan she would, of a certainty, never arrive at her destination.
And this is why milestones are such important steps on the road to goal achievement. Finally, if you are not yet at the point of clarity, then by all means make that your first goal, for without focus and clarity of purpose you will never achieve your dream.
And just like with my dream to become the best of college speakers, you are going to have reversals, disappointments, and unexpected hurdles but if the goal or the outcome that you desire remains constant you will achieve it.

Self-Motivation Using the Pain Vs Pleasure Principle

By Jeffrey Mayhugh

Seek motivation from others that have what you want, done what you want to do, and lived the life you desire. Use books, seminars, and advice from wise and successful people to help motivate you to pursue what you really want. But know this; you must ultimately learn to motivate yourself and take action to achieve what you really want.
All the advice and guidance from others cannot replace your own internal voice. Consistent self-motivation to do what needs to be done, when it needs to be done, is one of the most important powers you must develop to enjoy the greatest success in your life.
The Pain vs. Pleasure Principle
Understand what motivates you. Everything you do is motivated by two fundamental desires; one is to gain pleasure and the other is to avoid pain. This has also been described as the motivations of comfort vs. discomfort, or love vs. fear.
Think about any decision you have made in your life. You ultimately made the decision to do anything based on your desire to either obtain some form of pleasure or avoid some form of pain.
As you go about your day, you are making decisions, either consciously or subconsciously. And as you make each decision about what to do and what not to do, you are asking and answering the pleasure vs. pain question.
It does not matter if you are making a decision as simple as what to have for lunch or as life-altering as proposing marriage, your decisions are based on your assessment of what will help you to gain pleasure and what will help you to avoid pain.
Some of the greatest thinkers throughout history taught that avoiding pain is a more powerful motivator than the desire for obtaining pleasure.
"The aim of the wise is not to secure pleasure, but to avoid pain." - Aristotle -
So, why is the understanding of this pain vs. pleasure principle so important to self-motivation? Because, by recognizing the principle, we can better control the direction of our lives by assigning the levels of pain vs. pleasure to the actions we are considering.
How to Use the Pain vs. Pleasure Principle
For example, if you want to approach your boss for a raise, you may imagine your boss getting angry or ridiculing you for asking. You associate the possibility of pain to taking the action. Furthermore, you assign a level or degree of potential pain to that action.
You may also imagine what a raise would mean to you or your family. You think of how good it would feel to have the additional money for something you want, or the pleasure you would feel providing something extra for your family. You associate the possibility of pleasure to taking the action. As with the potential for pain, you also assign a level or degree of potential pleasure to that action.
So, you weigh the possibility of pain you assigned to an unreceptive boss against the possibility of pleasure you assigned to what you could do with the extra money.
Which one motivates you more? Most often the fear of pain outweighs the hope for pleasure. So, you choose not to act.
However, you have the ability to assign the weight of the pleasure and the weight of the pain to tip the scale. You can motivate yourself to ask for the raise by associating more pain to not asking for it.
It is important to remember that we are instinctively motivated by the need to avoid pain. So, imagine and feel the pain you would experience by not taking action. Imagining the pain you would feel is your greatest motivator to take action. Then, as an added measure, imagine and feel the pleasure you would experience by taking the action and being successful as a result. Control the scale in your favor. Motivate yourself by assigning massive pain to inaction and great pleasure to action.
Recognize that self-motivation is a choice you make. You can choose to motivate yourself, using the pleasure vs. pain principle, or you can allow your subconscious to control your actions by default.
Don't allow your subconscious decisions to dictate your actions, or inactions. Ask yourself what is motivating you to do what you are doing throughout the day. Magnify in your mind the pain you will experience if you fail to act. Likewise, magnify in your mind the pleasure you will experience if you take the action that you know will ultimately be in your best interest.
