Ways To Increase Motivation

Ways To Increase Motivation

by Peter James Field

What pulls you, drives you, pushes you?

It might seem like the people around us are very polarized — some people want to make a difference to the environment, while others want to retire at 50 — but research shows that humans are actually much more complex and multifaceted than this.

It isn’t just one thing that motivates and allows us to make that motivation breakthrough, but many things all at once. Researchers have narrowed down the many motivators to a few distinct categories. If you want to get to that motivation place within, then here are a few pointers that will aid in your self help motivation.

Goal Setting

Setting goals can improve motivation and get you moving. But when setting goals make sure they feel achievable, realistic, and that they really do motivate you. Improving your average sale at work may not push your buttons, though it looks good on a resume — so what does push your buttons? Saving up for a holiday to Fiji? Taking art classes at night?

These sorts of goals might inspire you to push your average sale up, for example, more than just focusing on improving your work performance.

Goals should feel exciting. They are tied in with your dreams you have for your future. If, however, you find that your goal setting is too daunting or feels to difficult, you may have overreached what you feel is capable and achievable. Instead of writing a novel, maybe just start with a short story.

Then work your way up to 5 stories. Once you have completed 10 stories, even if it takes a whole year, writing a novel may not freak you out. It will probably feel more achievable by then.

Understanding Your Drives

According to a study published by the Incentive Research Foundation in 2011, there are four basic drives that determine human motivation: acquiring, comprehending, bonding and defending.

Acquiring is about the tangible benefits we can gain e.g. money, skills, training, promotions, respect, etc.

Comprehending has to do with doing something we feel is meaningful, such as working with complex ideas, creativity, or participating in a job that makes a difference to the world. Bonding all about friendship, camaraderie, and social connection.

Defending takes into account issues around fairness and justice — we are more motivated to work with and for people who treat us (and others) well, than those who treat us (and others) unfairly.

While some people may feel they lean more towards one drive than another, the studies show humans actually need a balance of all four areas. Failing in one area can negatively impact how we feel about all other areas. When you achieve a holistic balance of all four drives, you naturally access that motivation place within, make that motivation breakthrough, and become highly motivated.

Teaming Up

Setting goals, chanting affirmations, working on projects — it all helps, but sometimes you just need a bit more external support.

Some of us thrive from working alone, the triumph is all the more great once you reach the finish line all by yourself. But some of us are team players. Support, camaraderie, creative collaboration — working with others brings a lot to our lives and the things we are trying so desperately to achieve.

If you are not sure what you prefer, just try it. Invite someone to collaborate on a project, partner up with some like-minded colleagues, or join a group. Not only does this sort of networking provide you wish fresh perspectives and ideas, it also provides accountability. Tell people about your goals and projects.

It can really motivate you to know that someone supports your dreams, and is cheering you on.

Conserving Energy

Increasing motivation is hard when you are tired. Often people are hard-working and dedicated to their goals. But dedication can lead to fatigue, if you don’t pace yourself and self-manage your energy output. Even when you love what you do, even when you feel happy and excited, the mind and body need to rest.

Being “on” all the time, or worse, experiencing chronic stress, can lead to fatigue and exhaustion that feels as if it leeches into every part of life. At this point, you need to be realistic. It is hard to be motivated if you have pushed your system too hard.

To increase your motivation, the best thing you can do is take time out and re-fuel. Take a break from your goals, take a break even from your career or job, just for a little while, if it is possible.

People who care about you always want to help out. Ask those around you to share the load, so you can get away for a while. Ask yourself how long — you know the answer. One weekend? A week? A month?

Soon as you get the rest you need, being motivated and enthusiastic about your goals becomes a whole lot easier.

Are you Motivated?

Written by Dick Scott.

The most important question in anything you want to accomplish in life is:  are you motivated? No matter what you say about how motivated you are the time comes when it is crucial to show that motivation in action. I mean that you are often very motivated in the beginning of a new project and do everything possible to break through or break even. But in every project there are always a time when you feel like nothing happen no matter how hard you try.

Remember that success is not achieved in a moment of inspiration it is rather accomplished after consistency and daily tasks. Those small steps you take each day in the direction of your dreams will surely get you there believe me. The only way not to make it is to quit and that is unfortunately what most of us do when we hit the wall.  This time it is very important to have a clear vision of your goal and also have a sence of it being real. That will motivate you to dont give up because when you can see your goal as possible to reach within a resonable time frame then it will trigger you to hold on to your dream. Of course you also will need a genuine and serious digital sale system to work with instead of jumping between every new get quick rich scheme out there. I have calculated that the time you eventually surf around for fun could as easily be used in a productive way working with your serious online business.

If you have a family to support and care for that will be the motivation  you need to make a living online. Maybe you are unemployed and wonder how to get a job. Let that drive you to start your own online business where noone else tells you what to do and when to do it. It is really not so expensive if you work with free marketing methods and learn from those who has struggled before you and now made a perfect platform containing education and every resource needed for you to succeed.

Noone else can do it for you, motivation comes from inside your own burning desire to make a change in your life. Maybe it is so that you come to a point in your life when you are so fed up with your situation so you will easily make that final decision needed to take the first step to a better life for yourself and those you care about.

Thanks for reading and check the links in my blog for more information about the digital sale system.

The Secret to Your Success written by Dick Scott.

Secret to success in life is hard to find as long as you look in the wrong places. We have a tendence to believe everything authorities say without a question. And also to be affected by commercials that surrounds us wherever we are. But times are changing in this technology where we can find a lot of information from different sources that help us see things from a different point of view then we usually do.

We also see the downfalling of our current economic system and there are many things that is shifting quickly in our world. My belief is that the more those authorities that has seemed reliable to us no longer has credibility the less we listen to them.

And this is the times of awakening and learning to listen to our heart in order to create and live a life of success which is defined by our own beliefs and needs and not by whats most ordinary. Because whats ordinary may seems easy to follow but are also a very dangerous road to take which dont let us unfold any of our hidden potentials and keep us in the same routine every day.
I want to stress that there are no pattern to follow to success that will be right for every person because we all define things differently.

 3 Secrets you your success.

  • Secret # 1. The definition of success has to be your own and resonate with who you are and what you believe in.
  • Secret # 2. Noone and nothing outside yourself can fix or do whats need to be done to put you in any highway to success if you`re not ready.
  • Secret # 3. Success is a state of mind and has nothing to do with money but everything to do with being grateful for what you have and who you are in this present moment because this will open the floodgates to your own never ending source within yourself.
Secret to Success

So my dear friend it all starts with being authentic to who you are here and now no matter what struggle you are going through or had gone through because when we are we also connect to people around us that are drawn to our openess and can relate to our true story of who we are.
No matter how much or what we have we wont be happy as long as we dont feel a community with others; family, relatives or neighbours for example.
So to equate money with success will not help you to live a happy life, and thats  what we indeed really want behind it all. But if we find our desire and follow our heart to hapiness money will be the result of it.
For me personally i work with these questions and myself the whole time and has been greatly inspired and helped from the learning community of successful people that has walked the walk themselves and found their path to success. They have also found that the secret to success is very much within themselves and that is a wake up call with both responsibility but also possibilities to create the life we want.
