We all have our own moments of doubt, anguish and total laziness. But what usually determines someone’s success or failure is their ability to stay excited, especially during the most difficult times. I have worked on this topic for years and here are some things you can do to stay excited.
1. Work your negative thoughts
Tony Robbins was right when he said that the difference between you and success is the pointless story told. These restrictive beliefs make you doubt, and the only way to stay excited is to expose them to journalism and expressive writing. Studies have found that those who completed four weekly sessions for eight weeks were less anxious and more excited than those who did not.
2. Remove performance barriers
Tim Ferris has a simple learning style that works like magic. When you are about to learn a skill or do something new, take time to list all the reasons for your withdrawal.
Once you have identified these barriers, your goal is to complete the first five sessions of everything you want to practice. Why five? Because this is what your mind needs to create cables for new habits.
3. Do less things that do not fit your goals
Sales mogul Grant Cardone once shared a story about someone with whom he worked at McDonald’s. Unlike Cardone, who was there for the money, this super boy was pumped to go to work. Why Because his goal was to learn all about the business and open his own McDonald’s privileges. Soon Cardone was fired and this man went to fulfill his dream.
4. Create a need
Brendan Bouchard once asked a client, an Olympic runner, who thought he would win the race. The man replied: “I will face the man who goes down in the blocks, looks at the finish line and says:” I have to do this to my mother. ”
This is the power of why. When you lack motivation, ask yourself why or who you want to reach. If you keep digging, you’ll always find something worth working hard for.
5. It’s like a bathroom
“People often say that the motivation did not last. Well, there are no showers, so we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar
You usually hear people say, “I don’t feel motivated to pursue my goals.” Well, maybe if you write them long enough, you will eventually feel motivated to track them.
You must commit to writing your goals at least once a day, every day, no matter how satisfied or bad you are, because at the end of the day, your quality of life will decrease to what you choose to attract attention. Therefore, it is better to pay attention to something worthwhile.
When listing your goals, write what makes you pump. If I am not motivated by “I am my first million before I turn 25,” consider listing all the things you want to buy or try when you earn your first million. A trip to Italy, a seat at the Lakers stadium, X doesn’t feel guilty … etc.
Forget what others say goals should be, as long as the goals you have chosen make you feel excited, you’re fine.
6. Get a quick jump in the day
It is much easier to change emotions by doing it in the opposite direction. Why Because you have more control over actions than feelings. As William James once said: “By organizing work, which is subject to more direct control over the will, we can regulate the feeling indirectly.”
If there is a solid block that I want to leave, let it be: productivity is prior to stimulation, not the other way around. This is the reason why you should start the day with an explosion, regardless of whether it is an early riser or a night bird.
The faster the day starts, the more motivated you will feel for the rest of the day. So cut Facebook, obsolete text messages or T.V. And concentrate all your efforts on achieving something.
What kind of productivity, no matter how small. Just remember that once the ball starts rolling, you will feel excited to do more. The moving object will remain moving, as the law says.
