Easy Way To Keep Yourself Motivated
We all know the power of motivation. When we are motivated, we experience such a powerful self that no dream is too big for us.
Do you remember when you heard an inspiring story and instantly felt full of motivation? At that time, you must have a desire to do something extraordinary in life. However, the next day all motivation vanishes away.
When we listen to a motivational song or watch any motivational movie, we feel on the top of the world. They remind us our dreams. We feel so energized. However, the motivation last for a while. Then, we get ourselves fighting with the difficulties of daily life. We begin to lose faith in ourselves. Finally, we forget about our dreams.
Motivation: The Secret of Success:
Do you know what makes great person great? What separates them from others? How successful people are able to achieve goals one after another? The first secret of their success is Motivation. Successful people live in motivation. Yes, they are full of motivation all the time.
Nobody can stay motivated until he or she regularly does something to recharge himself with motivation. Successful people have plenty of motivational sources here and there. Whenever they find some time, they nourish themselves with motivation. Do you do it?
How to Keep Yourself Motivated:
Whenever I talk about having lasting motivation, a nice piece of the Zig Ziglar quote comes into my mind.
Today we often make excuses that we do not have enough time daily. Let me tell you that you do not need to spare half an hour every day just for motivation. Therefore, there is no need to make excuses. You only need to take little pieces of time daily to keep yourself motivated.
Listen or read something inspirational just for a couple of minutes and you will feel motivated for several hours. It is up to you, when you can find that time pieces. For example, you can feed motivation yourself every morning. You can even do it while shaving or taking a bath. You can do it while driving or travelling. In short, motivate yourself whenever you find time.
How to ride on the Motivation:
Motivation is like a fuel for the vehicle. It helps you to start life vehicle for your dream journey. Now, if you keep your life vehicle at the same place even if it has started, all your fuel will get lost in vain. So make use of your motivational fuel before it ends. How?
Once you feel motivated, take actions toward dreams. In turn, these actions will keep you motivated for long time.
“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” ~ Jim Ryan
Many of us have a large gap between the thinking and actions. Thinking alone never helps. There are uncounted numbers of people who think a lot. Many people dream and think big. However, rather than taking the next step, they wait for miracles. They wait for the more motivation to come. They wait for the opportunities.
Meet the Motivation often:
If motivation does not come to it, you go for it. If an opportunity does not come, create it. You never realize your true power. All of the great people of their time were like us. Most of them were not born talented. They discovered their motive. They developed their talent. They motivated themselves and achieved their dreams. That is it.
“To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.” ~ Bruce Lee
Explore your talent. Then keep yourself motivated.
Motivated, What Next:
Once you get a touch of motivation, you will find an urge to work on your dreams. Do not wait too long to start. If we wait too long, our positive thoughts will disappear eventually and negativity takes place in our mind. Therefore, our mind starts giving excuses.
See any successful people. They do not think so much. They think, plan and start working on it.
Everyone has Talent:
Everyone is born with potential to do extraordinary in life. Unfortunately, we settled ordinary. When someone asks what our talent is, we think for a while and say that we do not have any talent.
“Everybody has talent, it’s just a matter of moving around until you’ve discovered what it is.” ~ George Lucas
In most cases, we have never tried to explore our talent. Everyone is unique in one way or other. Even if you examine a person with disabilities, you will find something special within him. Therefore, Never ever, doubt your existence in this world.
“We are not in a position in which we have nothing to work with. We already have capacities, talents, direction, missions, callings.” ~ Abraham H. Maslow
Sometimes we simply forget it. Do you remember when you buy some festival stuff to decorate your home? You use it for a few days and then keep it in store to use it later. Many years later when you are cleaning your home, you eventually find your stuff. Then you realize that you almost forget it.
If you do not use things for a while, you certainly forget about them. The same happen with talent. Do you forget something that was your speciality once? Let us see how to find the gift that nature given us.
Identify your Talent:
As Buddha said, “Everyone is gifted here, but some of us never opened their package”. Have you opened your package?
Where can you find your talent? You can find it in your hobbies. You may be born with some natural gift. You can find your talent in your skills acquired during education. It may be in the form of writing, speaking, programming, designing, painting, singing, or managing employees or customer. It may be decorating home or cooking. It could be anything.
Sometimes we simply ignore our talent because it seems an ordinary thing to us. For an example as a homemaker, you prepare food for your family. You know that you cook well and you like it doing. Therefore, you might be asking yourself, “How can it be a talent? This is my regular work and every homemaker like me is doing it.”
There should be no question to talent as big, small or ordinary talent. A talent is a talent. If anyone asks you, what your talent is? Say it proudly that, “I can cook well”. If you appreciate your talent, you give it a new direction to evolve. You never know where it may take you in your life.
“With ordinary talents and extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable.” ~ Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton
If you have finished your education and do not yet know your talent, you are getting too late. If you are doing business or pursing job and do not know your talent, you are fooling yourself. One third of your life already passed and you do not know what you really want to do in this world?
Do not wait too long. Trust your instinct and follow your heart. Identify once and trust on it. You can always sharp your talent by learning required skills later.
