7 Steps to Endless Motivation

Intro

 

What is the sound of your alarm clock? Does it beep, does it play your favorite music? What if your alarm clock could become the most important foundation to turning your life around, achieving your dreams, and becoming that person you’ve always wanted to be.

 

Have you ever got pumped up to work out after hearing a motivational speaker, or after hearing testimonies from people about losing 100 pounds? Have you ever made a New Years resolution to change your diet, only to later catch yourself binge watching on Netflix and stuffing yourself with desserts and junk? Well don’t worry you’re not alone. The problem is that motivation in general doesn’t last forever. Now I won’t speak for everyone because I’ve met many people who seem to just naturally be ambitious, work like a horse and can stay dedicated. However for many of us, we can be lazy bums. I’m not here to debate whether this is mainly through the results of years of bad programming or if we’re just naturally lazy, but I do know we can program ourselves to be more ambitious if we choose.

 

The way we live our lives can be determined by the result of the sum total of all our programming. Imagine every word you’ve heard and every thought you produced, whether good or bad contributed to that programming. So if you do not program your own brain, then society and the world will program it for you. If you leave it to the world to program your brain, then you’re leaving it to chance. Doing so can start working against you, causing you harm, misfortune and suffering. But if you chose, you can reprogram your brain to keep you alive and healthy, keep you out of danger, work tirelessly to help you accomplish your goals and live a fulfilling life.

 

The main objective of this book, is to teach you a robust system to allow you to reprogram your brain bit by bit to however you desire. Much of this book are lessons I’ve absorbed from successful experts that all resulted from changing my alarm clock and putting myself in the loop. It is just a small glimpse of the mindset you can develop and maintain by entering the loop. The loop has given me a never ending thirst for more. My goal is to help you design and enter your Loop!

 

For more on how I came up with this system, here’s a video

How to have Endless Motivation – Overview

 

The Infinite Loop

 

So what is this Loop? Well my background is Computer Science and in programming there’s a term called infinite loop. It means a sequence of instructions that loop endlessly and never gets terminated. It’s an endless cycle. In other words, it’s like the Energizer Bunny, it keeps going and going and going. Many times in my life I’d enter periods of being laser focused and productive, and periods of just being lazy, binge watching TV shows and playing video games endlessly. I often kept wondering why I kept falling off the horse. I wanted to create a system and routine where it would be impossible to go off course. Not only that, I wanted to create an infinite loop system that would be self-correcting, and would naturally keep getting better and more robust over time.

 

Most people are in a broken loop, or at least not in a very efficient or healthy one.

 

You watch or hear something motivational -> You get motivated -> You start taking action and becoming more productive -> Motivation decays over time -> You slowly stop taking actions –> You return to your previous lazy self. You get discouraged until something motivates you again. The problem is, this period of laziness can last weeks, months or even years until you may decide to start taking action again. I have a friend who got rejected by a girl he liked and it took him over 30 years until trying to enter the dating world again. But I’ll give him at least some credit for trying again. Some people lose a big business deal, lose their jobs, stop working out and just give up forever. Even worse, some end up entering a very harmful loop. There’s a line by the character of Fat Bastard in the movie Austin Powers, “I eat because I’m unhappy, and I’m unhappy because I eat.”

 

 

 

 

 

Now imagine this this loop

 

 

These seven steps can be summarized using the acronym A DESIRE. Every action we take comes from a desire.

 

Alarm clock

 

Daily Affirmations

Expand your Mind

Schedule your Plans

Initiate and Take Actions

Review your Tasks

Evaluate and Evolve

 

So try to ask yourself often, if you fulfill a specific desire that pops up in your mind, will that action lead you towards falling off your Loop?

 

Step 1: Alarm Clock

 

Listening to your alarm clock is the one thing that will be constant in your day-to-day life. Even if an emergency comes up and your whole schedule gets thrown off, you’ll be able to resume again the next day thanks to your alarm clock. The alarm clock prevents you from falling out of the loop.

 

Here’s a video in my channel of a motivational alarm clock

The Motivational Alarm Clock

 

The alarm clock will remind you what to be thankful for, what your goals are and most importantly remind you to listen to daily affirmations.

 

So how do you set you alarm clock to this? Well there are sites like Youtubealarm.com that will allow you to turn any Youtube video into an alarm clock.

If you have an android phone, I highly recommend you get [+ Easy Alarm+]. Easy Alarm allows you to not only set any Youtube video into an alarm clock, but also playlists which you can then shuffle.

 

I also allow users to download my alarm clocks in mp3 format in the description sections of my videos. You can then manually upload this to your phone and manually set it as your alarm.

Step 2: Daily Affirmations

 

If you could earn a dollar every time you had a positive thought and you lost a dollar for every negative thought, would you be more careful to choose what type of thoughts would you hold in your head? – Ryan Black

 

Our thoughts are not simply psychological, but also physiological. To make things simple, think of each thought as electric current that sends a signal to the brain and affects chemical activities there. I can recall my Abnormal Psychology professor emphasizing that thoughts are so powerful; you can think yourself to death.

 

Anyone who has read a self-help book has probably heard of affirmations. “I love myself. I radiate charisma charm and grace. Everybody likes talking to me. I’m wealthy and rich and ect.” Right after your alarm clock, you should begin your day with positive affirmations.

 

Here is an example from my channel. Affirmations for Positive Thinking

 

Affirmations are great, but if you listen carefully there maybe voices in your head that say, “Yeah right! Who are you kidding?” This happens when there’s a gap between your current reality and what you’re affirming. The bigger this gap is, the louder that voice will be. So as you become wealthier or as you come closer to reaching your goals, this voice will begin to quite down. You can then measure how close you’ve come based on how much you believe these voices.

 

So the question is, how do you close this gap? Besides making statements it is also important to focus on learning and becoming good at asking positive questions. This is called afformations. Afformations automatically make your mind seek and search for answers. They will guide you to close those gaps.

“How can I generate more money without sacrificing my family and values? What can I do to learn how to make more money?”

“How do I create more time? How do I learn how to create more time? How can I manage my time better?”

“How can I lose weight, be healthy while still eat food I enjoy? How can I go about changing bad habits that tempt me to eat unhealthy food?”

 

Here is an example from my channel of Time Management Affirmations

 

There’s an infinite amount of positive questions you can ask. Do not let the examples in this book be the limit. If you want to learn more about afformations then I recommend you get the [+ Afformations: The miracle of Positive Self-Talk+] by Noah St. John

Step 3: Expand the Mind

 

Those who will not read are no better than those who cannot read – Jim Rohn

 

It is probably a good idea to avoid watching the news in the morning. Start your day by improving a skill or learning something new. One way of doing this is by reading a positive book. If you find something inspiring, a helpful technique, then consider incorporating it in your loop. You have to emotionally flood yourself with good memories and accomplishments you’re proud of, and grateful. Don’t over analyze what you’re ashamed about.

 

Investing in yourself is one of the best things you can do. There is an old rule of saving the first 10% of whatever you earn, and then using another 10% on investing on yourself. This leaves you 80% of your income to work with. The idea here is that you should consider investing that 10% on learning skills or acquiring knowledge that can help you increase your income. Therefore as your income increases, so does your budget of that 10% you use to invest in yourself. Some multi-millionaires who followed this rule say that one of hardest part when you reach a high level of success, is deciding how to now spend that entire 10% for self improvement.

 

I truly believe human beings find happiness through progress. So I believe it’s important to always try to become smarter and more knowledgeable than who we were yesterday.

Step 4: Schedule your Plans

 

Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other opinions drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary – Steve Jobs

You should learn to schedule all your plans and activities. It doesn’t matter how good your memory is. I can personally memorize hundreds of numbers in sequence forwards and backwards, but I’ll still forget activities without writing them down. Every smart phone these days comes with a calendar. I personally use Google calendar, but there’s enough apps out there to choose from. Or if calendar apps aren’t for you, then get a physical agenda book. I personally use the [+ Panda Planner+].

 

Next you need to learn Pareto’s Principle, the 80-20 rule. This rule basically says that for many events, 80% of the effect comes from 20% of the cause. For most people, they only wear 20% of the clothes they own. In most cities, 80% of the traffic is on 20% of the roads. So applying this to time management, we need to find the most important tasks and do them first in order to maximize productivity. We have to understand that not all tasks in our to do lists are as important from one another. Unfortunately, the important tasks are usually the hardest from the list.

 

Another way to create more time is by simply cutting deadlines in half. If you give yourself 2 weeks to complete a task, it will take 2 weeks. If you give yourself only 1 week, it will take 1 week. Psychologically speaking, the task will increase in complexity. We tend to equate how difficult a task is by how long we have to complete it. This is how many procrastinators are able to do so much work when they leave things to the last minute.

 

There is also delegating tasks. This simply means finding or hiring people to do tasks for you, so you can focus on doing the more productive ones.

Lastly, another big way to create more time is by sacrificing some activities. For me it was giving up video games and significantly reducing how much television I watched. What can you give up for your goals and dreams?

Here are Affirmations for Time Management

Step 5: Initiate and Take Actions

The beginning of a thousand miles begins with one step – Lao Tzu

After you have planned your tasks for the day, it’s time to get to work and take action. Breaking big tasks into little ones can help.

 

There was one big helpful thing about being a former video game addict. It allowed me to look back and figure out what exactly made specific games addictive, and which ones I’d get bored of in a few days or even a few minutes. I took these elements and applied it to more productive things such my studies, business and learning languages.

 

I learned how to make being productive a game. One way literally getting an old board game I had like Monopoly. Every time I did a task I scheduled to do I would move my piece forward. Along the way I would spin wheels to make things random and fun.

 

I would sometimes spin a wheel for example when deciding how long I’m going to work on a task. Productivity Wheel

I would also sometimes use a wheel to decide what affirmations to listen to Affirmations Wheel

 

There is also something called Scramble theory: Try to dedicate doing something new or out of ordinary each week. Perhaps do this is an incentive by committing to your goals. This prevents your Loop from becoming too repetitive.

 

 

 

Step 6: Review your Tasks

 

Check if you there were tasks you forgot to do, or just didn’t have enough time for. Adjust your schedule for tomorrow or the future to make time for them. I personally have an audio recording that reminds to get my clothes ready for tomorrow, brush and floss my teeth, what alarm clock I want to listen to tomorrow, and all my nightly routines.

 

Step 7: Evaluate and Evolve

 

I am better than who I was yesterday but not as good as who I will be tomorrow – Anonymous

 

This is one the most important steps of your Loop. This is where you look back at your day and see how you can improve your Loop. Ask yourself how you can save more time, what adjustments you’d like to make, and how you can make your Loop better for tomorrow. Don’t expect to have a perfect Loop in a day, but always try to make it better than the day before.

 

There are a lot of amazing books and ideas out there. The ones that call out to you, find a way to incorporate it in your loop.

 

Other questions you should consider asking:
How can I improve my Loop? How can I stay committed to it? How can I make it more fun? How can I make my loop more addicting? Who can benefit if I were to share my loop system? What will I have to change about myself? What will I have to sacrifice? How can I become, better than who I was yesterday?

 

For me, I always ask how can I make my channel better? How can I make the Infinite Loop System better for people?

 

 

How not to Fall off the Loop

 

You can either ride your Loop, or make excuses and fall off. But you can’t do both – Aaron Tupaz

 

The first step is to make sure your alarm clock is always working. This is why I remind myself in recording before I sleep to check if my phone is charged and not on silent. Also, if you ever decide to change your phone, make sure the alarm clock is one of the first things you change.

 

Another thing you can do is print a copy of your favorite affirmations and put it on your door, or ceiling of your bed, or bathroom mirror, or somewhere you know you will come across.

 

Always remember the acronym A Desire and from time to time when you have a desire that pops up in your head, ask yourself if fulfilling that desire will cause you to fall out of the Loop. If so, think twice before taking action and fulfilling that desire.

 

Choose your 5 closest friends or people you spend the most time with wisely. You don’t have to throw out all your friends, but you can choose to reduce how much time you spend with the ones who are holding you back. Every 6 – 12 months, usually circumstances change in your inner circle. Someone from your 5 might move out, get married, and become more busy. Make sure you choose well on who the next person who ends up in your 5 will be. Don’t just let the next random who pops up in your life be in that 5.

 

“You must constantly ask yourself these questions: Who am I around? What are they doing to me? What have they got me reading? What have they got me saying? Where do they have me going? What do they have me thinking? And most important, what do they have me becoming? Then think of your goals and ask yourself the big question: Is that okay?”

 

Better yet, introduce this system to your friends and people you surround yourself with. You should even consider finding a partner of accountability. You tell teach other what your goals for the weeks are and both of you will check up on each other to make sure you’re getting the work done.

 

You should also learn the ability and courage to say no. Saying yes to people is easy. Saying yes to people doesn’t hurt anyone. If your best friend asks you out for ice cream and you don’t want to ruin your diet, then use some afformations. How can I enjoy going out without ruining my diet? If you know you have some important work to do but you’re having trouble saying no to going out, ask yourself, how can I summon the strength to say no? Perhaps you’ll end up proposing another day when you’re free to hang out instead.

 

“People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.” – Steve Jobs

 

 

Why Audio Recordings?

 

 

One of the books that truly inspired me was, [+ What to Say When You Talk to Yourself+] by Shad Helmstetter. I learned about the broken loop that people live in due to how motivation often decays. His solution was to learn to talk to yourself in order to reprogram your mind. One of the ways of doing so that he recommended was by using audiotapes. As inspiring and life changing as this book was, there was a problem I began to notice. What happens if I become lazy and stop listening to these recordings or forget the positive things I should tell myself daily? What if some emergency occurs and throws me off my routine and I forget to listen to these recordings? So I asked myself what is the one constant thing I do each day no matter what. The answer was turning off that annoying alarm clock.

 

 

 

 

Embrace the Hardship and Failures

 

You either shrink your dreams or you expand your skills. Don’t wish for things to be easier, especially the things you cannot control. Instead, wish and strive to become better. Remove the word struggle and problem from your vocabulary. Replace it with challenge and look at challenges as an adventure. Understand that challenges are simply questions that have not been answered yet.

 

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy – Martin Luther King

Accept failure is part of the process of getting better and pushing yourself. Everybody fails. I’ll repeat that, everybody fails! But don’t be like some people, who gets knocked down and take months or years to get up. Someone once told me, that if you get knocked down, at least try to land on your back, because if you can look up, then you can get up. What separates the successful people from the rest is how fast they can get up when they fall. So cry if you have to, yell out loud, or take a drive somewhere and do what you need to do to let off steam. With practice, you can learn to recover within seconds to 20 minutes, no matter how big the failure. I’ve attended seminars of the most successful people like Robert kiyosaki and Darren Hardy and they failed their way to the top.

 

Amateurs call someone with mastery a genius. Masters simply call it practice. The master has failed more times than the beginner has even tried. Remember, the more you sweat in training, the less you bleed in battle

 

 

 

 

 

Conclusion

 

Real change does not come from the outside in. It comes from the inside out. Your life is nothing more than a reflection of the thoughts you think. So change your thoughts and you’ll change your life.

 

What are your basic needs? Food? Water? Shelter? Clothing? Human connection? Sleep? Your cellphone? You need to start viewing Self-Talk as the most important basic need. It controls your attitude and motivation about everything. Think of your motivation level as a car, and Self-Talk is its fuel. So stay committed to practicing Self-Talk.

 

Don’t wait. Set up that motivational Alarm Clock right now, and believe me the biggest problem you’ll have, is not entering the Infinite Loop earlier.
