To be motivated and release your full potential involves strong mind power. It is believed that most anything can be achieved using the tools of the mind! This involves using positive thinking and will power to motivate you toward a goal. In a person’s lifetime you will have many goals to aspire to and challenges to overcome, and it is important to make sure that you keep motivated in order to live life to its fullest!
Positive thinking is one of the key elements to getting motivated. This tool can be used in every situation. It is common when faced with a problem or challenge to think negatively about the situation. Usually it is the first thing that pops into our heads, which makes it hard to think about it in a positive light, but that’s exactly what we have to do: just find a positive, no matter how minute it may be and focus on it. It can be the most difficult task to focus on something positive when we are faced with devastating situations in our life, but we must overcome negative thinking and replace it with positive thoughts so we can release our full potential.
To get yourself motivated toward something you want to do, keep it small at first. Many people for example when they are trying to diet will try to do it all at once. This unrealistic plan can lead to failure. If small steps are initially taken such as cutting out the snacks for a week or cutting back on red meat the next week, the small steps may more easily add up to the ultimate goal of weight loss. Small successes are important to keeping yourself motivated.
I taught my children to not look at projects they were assigned all at once, lest they become overwhelmed. I told them to break it up into small segments and attack those tasks individually. When they did that they found they could overcome their fear and reluctance and reach their goal.
Another creative idea is to grant yourself a reward for staying motivated. Kids get rewards all the time, but what about adults? Is it wrong to reward yourself? No, it is not! Attack your tasks, release your potential, accomplish your goals and the rewards will come.
Motivation can be achieved and potentially unleashed…it’s all in the way you think and feel about it!
“Ineffective people live day after day with unused potential. They experience synergy only in small, peripheral ways in their lives. But creative experiences can be produced regularly, consistently, almost daily in people’s lives. It requires enormous personal security and openness and a spirit of adventure.” Stephen R. Covey
