Motivation

Everyone is born with potential. No matter who you are, and no matter what kind of background you might have come from, you too have the potential to accomplish anything you dream of. Even when you lose sight of your inner strength, it is always there, waiting for you to find it once again. In order to achieve the most in your life, you must always know how to tap into that energy and keep yourself going strong as you work your way toward your goals.

But why are goals so important? It is necessary to set goals for yourself if you hope to advance your life to the next level. You might choose goals that can help you work your way up the corporate ladder, or select something to strive toward that will help you build a family. No matter which goals you choose, you must work toward them regularly in order to reach these lofty ambitions.

Of course, without the proper motivation, you cannot get anywhere, and you will soon end up stuck in a rut from which you cannot escape. Whether you find yourself facing daunting tasks such as completing major work-related projects or trying to quit smoking, or you simply need to push yourself toward smaller goals like eating healthy foods or spending more time with your family, the right amount of motivation can help you go far.

Many times, it is easy to fall into the habit of telling yourself what you should be doing in your life, but never actually taking any action. You might remind yourself every day that it is important to watch your calories, for example, but then chow down on a cheeseburger at dinner before the regret sets in. This leads to a cycle of empty promises, inactivity, and personal disappointment that is sure to put you on the path toward a lack of lifetime success. There are many ways to keep this from happening, but when it comes down to it, motivation is a tricky matter to handle.

In order to build up your motivation, it is necessary to first understand what makes your motivation tick, and how you can help to improve it. From there, you can test your personal motivational skills in various ways, and hone them so that they can help you get ahead in life. You can learn to fight back against mental blocks that keep you from accomplishing your goals, and you might even get so good at motivating yourself that you are able to help others get on track as well. Working your way toward a more motivated life can be a difficult challenge, but the rewards are phenomenal. When you start your journey toward self-motivation, you will soon realize just how much this inner quality means to you, and how easy it can be to build it up into something you can be proud of.

Chapter One – Motivation at its Core

Motivation has several different aspects, each of which work together to create one big, abstract concept. At its heart, motivation is something that takes place inside your mind, which can help push you toward something you are striving for. It is an impulsive action, even though it is closely related to planning and coordination, and sometimes, people can be motivated on the spur of the moment without ever realizing what started them down this path in the first place. Although motivation cannot be observed from a physical standpoint, behavioral analysts have studied its effects on people throughout time, and have come to understand the ways in which motivation and a lack of motivation both change individuals who experience these feelings.

There are two main theories that support the concept of motivation. The first of these is Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, which describes motivation on a very primitive level. Maslow posited that all human beings have different levels of needs which motivate them toward a goal. When one level of needs is met in an individual, that person is then able to progress to the next level, and so on. Without achieving the most basic goals required by all human beings, we cannot move to bigger and better things. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs includes the following levels:

• Physiological Needs – Water, food, shelter, and a stable family and home life.

• Social Needs – Love, friendship, and a sense of belonging in a community.

• Self-esteem Needs – Respect and admiration from oneself and others.

• Self-actualization Needs – Living life to the fullest and making the most out of every day.

The other motivation theory, Drive Reduction Theory, is less closely associated to the concept of emotional motivation as we understand it today. This theory focuses on human nature and our motivation to do whatever it takes to maintain or reduce our current level of needs. For example, if we are hungry, we are motivated to eat so that we reduce our need for food. If we live in a comfortable home, we pay our mortgage so that we can maintain our current standards of comfort, and so we do not find ourselves in need of a shelter. This theory works in practice, but does not take into account environmental and emotional factors that can change motivation. In this way, it is a less helpful theory, and Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is the best way to think about motivation.

When it comes to getting motivated, the needs and goals that drive you can be intrinsic or extrinsic. Intrinsic needs move you to act for the sake of enjoyment. For example, if you like playing the guitar, you will be motivated to learn more songs and practice your chords, simply because you get some enjoyment out of the activity. On the other hand, extrinsic motivation gives you some incentive to improve or work toward your goals. This is the type of motivation you might feel if you want to advance to a higher level in your career. Both types of motivation are equally beneficial, and it is important to tap into whatever drives you to achieve your dreams.

Chapter Two – Emotional Motivation

When it comes to getting motivated, there are many ways in which you can use your own state of mind and your environment to help yourself get ahead. Some people respond well to emotional motivation, which is a type of motivation that focuses on internal feelings and external responses to those feelings. Those who are very focused on emotions in the first place are sure to respond well to this type of motivation. Emotional motivation is very prevalent in motivational speakers, who rely heavily on stirring up their crowds in order to incite the proper response. In the heat of the moment, and particularly in a crowd situation, it is easy to get caught up in these speakers and to feel like you will never come down from your motivational high. However, when you get time to yourself once again, these feelings fade quickly. It is important to work on emotional motivation in ways that will work throughout the course of your journey, rather than simply during specific circumstances that may be difficult to replicate.

One type of emotional motivation revolves around writing down individual tasks and then keeping track of the positive and negative ways you react to those tasks. Keep careful notes, and you will soon be able to see a pattern in the ways in which you experience emotional motivation. Certain tasks may make you feel much worse than others, and those are the tasks that you need to tweak in order to make them work better for you. Although it may not work well as your only source of motivational energy, this is a great way to supplement yourself throughout the course of your journey to success. This method does require quite a lot of introspection, but if you are up to the challenge, it can be very rewarding.

Another emotional motivational technique is personal conditioning. Using this method, some individuals are able to perform a small physical trigger that, over time, conditions them to remember positive mindsets and other forms of useful emotional response. For example, if you find yourself doing well during a task on your path to success, you might gently thump your fingers against your arm. If you continue to do this every time you feel positive toward your goals and yourself, you will soon come to associate the arm thumping with that sense of happiness. You can then thump your arm any time you need an added boost of motivation, and your mind will quickly associate the activity and the physical sensation with a positive mental state. Tactile learners can especially benefit from this technique.

There is a lot to be said for emotional motivation, and if it works well for you, do not hesitate to build yourself up emotionally in order to keep your motivational energy going strong. If, however, you are the type of person who focuses more on the logical, you might find that these methods do not work for you. In that case, you might do better with intellectual motivation, which will be discussed in the following chapter.

Chapter Three – Intellectual Motivation

When emotional motivation does not work for you, consider motivating yourself intellectually instead. Logical people are sure to respond well to this type of motivation, which focuses much more on thinking and reasoning, with a little bit of personal analysis thrown into the mix to round it all out. With intellectual motivation, individuals can find connections between their logical reasoning and their willingness and ability to take action and stay motivated. This technique enforces positive correlations between taking reasonable action and staying motivated, and points out how hard it is to stay on track when forced to complete an activity that does not appeal to the logical side of the mind.

In order to work on your intellectual motivation, it is important to keep a journal filled with notes about your thought process at any given time. When you feel like you are losing motivation, write down what is taking place at the time, and look within yourself to discover what feels wrong about the situation. You may soon uncover several negative thoughts and feelings that you can then write down as well. When your negativity comes to the surface, it can be much easier to logically dispel it simply by thinking reasonably about the things that are troubling you.

Logical people can also benefit from setting lofty goals, and breaking them down into doable steps. Although this is a great method for anyone looking to stay motivated, intellectual motivation drives some people to work toward goals that might be unrealistic to those who are too caught up in their feelings to think reasonably about the situation. For example, if you want to write a novel, you might tell yourself that you need to accomplish the daunting task of writing twenty thousand words in a month. This may seem impossible to some, but to the intellectually motivated, it is simply an excuse to make a list and start planning how to achieve this challenging endeavor. In the same example, this individual might realize that, in order to reach this goal, he or she should write five thousand words a week, which can further be broken down into one thousand words per weekday. With only a little bit of planning, it is possible to intellectually motivate yourself to greatness.

Of course, setting high goals may not work for you if you are too easily swayed by losing focus and a lack of self confidence. In those cases, you might find it easier to set more reasonable goals and then make a list of the reasons why they are reasonable. You can easily convince yourself that your goals are achievable if you simply write down logical reasons, and look back on them any time you feel less than motivated. It can be beneficial in these situations to do a little research for facts that can back up your claims, but be careful that you do not waste too much time digging up statistics when you could be working on something more important instead.

Chapter Four – Mental Barriers to Getting Started

There are many different mental barriers that can keep you from getting motivated. Even when you feel like you are motivated to achieve your personal goals, you may easily find yourself up against blocks in your mind that are just there to stop you from doing what you need to do. Mental blocks differ from person to person and from situation to situation, but many of the same themes crop up time and again in individuals who cannot get themselves motivated. It is important to understand how to recognize any potential barriers, and to get a good grasp on how to move beyond them. Only when you know how to tear down these walls can you truly become a motivated person.

Barrier #1 – Passive Voice

Although it might not work for everyone, changing your goals from a passive voice to an active one can sometimes make a big difference in how you perceive yourself, your aspirations, and your personal motivation. For example, if you want to stop smoking, you might tell yourself that you should stop smoking. However, it is very difficult to actually follow through with a statement when it is phrased in such a way. It is easy to back out by tacking something onto the end of the sentence, such as, “I should quit smoking, but I still want a cigarette.” Change the statement from should to must, and you will soon find far fewer reasons to change your mind. Try saying something like, “I must quit smoking, for my health,” and see if it helps you rethink your motivation.

Barrier #2 – Time Constraints

It is true that sometimes, you simply do not have time to take care of everything in a day. However, more often than not, unmotivated individuals use this mental barrier as a way to get out of working toward their goals. In some instances, it is important to reevaluate your priorities and make some smaller motivational decisions in order to reach a larger aspiration. For example, you might tell yourself that you need to run in order to get in shape or lose weight, but you might complain that you do not have the time to fit running into your daily schedule. In actuality, you can set a smaller goal for yourself to cut back on the amount of time you spend online in the evenings, and you will be able to free up plenty of time for a daily run easily.

Barrier #3 – Physical Limitations

As with time constraints, sometimes, physical limitations are very real. For example, you may find yourself unable to run every day due to chronic back pain. If, however, you frequently use physical limitations as an excuse to get out of working toward your goals, you may need to work on your motivation. Exercise is supposed to hurt a little bit, and stopping smoking is not going to be easy. Simply backing out due to physical hurdles that can be defeated is just another form of selling yourself short.

Chapter Five – Pitfalls Along the Way

Once you have battled the mental barriers to motivation, it is time to think closely about the ways in which you might lose your motivation once the fire has been lit. Overcoming the hurdles that keep you from getting motivated in the first place is an excellent step toward successful achievement of your goals, but be on the lookout for pitfalls that you may fall into along the way. It can be very difficult to hold onto motivation from the start of a project to the end. Pay close attention to these true motivation destroyers, and you will be able to recognize them as soon as they crop up in your life.

Destroyer #1 – Inability to Focus

It is so easy to get inside your own head and cut down your ability to focus before you even have a chance to get started on the path to a motivated and successful future. The inability to focus does not specifically mean a lack of attention to your goals, although that is certainly part of it. First and foremost, it is always important to pay attention to yourself, your dreams, and the path which you plan to take to reach them. However, it is just as necessary to keep your focus rooted to the same spot without letting yourself get overwhelmed. Do not fall into the trap of building more obstacles for yourself as you overthink your goals. In order to stay motivated, you have to focus on one step at a time, without getting overwhelmed.

Destroyer #2 – Inability to Chart a Course

If you are unable to set goals for yourself and make a game plan, your motivation will surely peter out before you ever get started. Though it might seem like a daunting task to get yourself organized, it is an absolute must when it comes to motivating yourself. If you do not set small, achievable steps along the way to your ultimate goal, you will give in almost immediately to the temptation of procrastination and to the mental barriers to motivation as outlined in the previous chapter. This is a common trap, and one that many highly motivated people still fall into when they are not careful. Be on the lookout for signs of apathy and procrastination in your own life. If you notice yourself tending this way, you may well have an inability to chart a course for yourself.

Destroyer #3 – Inability to Stay Confident

Self-image is directly related to motivation in more ways than one. When you are motivated and successful, your self-image increases, and you become more positive overall. On the other hand, when you lose sight of your motivation, it is easy to start feeling negatively toward yourself. Unfortunately, these negative feelings also often cause individuals to slack off when it comes to working toward their goals, and as such, a cycle is born from the inability to stay confident. Confidence in yourself makes a big difference when it comes to keeping motivated.

Chapter Six – Tackling your Pitfalls

Just as there are three different motivational pitfalls, there are three ways to fight back against them. If you find yourself having difficulties along the way as you work to achieve your goals, think back on these methods, and use the ones that work best for you. Soon, you will be able to vanquish the enemies of your motivation with ease, and you will have no problem continuing along down the path to success.

Get Focused

When you lose focus, you may find yourself flailing in the water, trying to gain some traction against the waves that threaten to pull you under. You might be afraid, and you might be caught up in your worries about “what if” this and “should I?” that. If you catch yourself falling into this nasty habit, regroup and see if there is a smaller goal you need to accomplish before you can move on to something larger. For example, you might hope to change your career path and find something new to do with your life, but you may find yourself distracted from that goal by several smaller problems that seem to crop up. Choose one of those problems, instead, and see if it needs to be your temporary goal. You might need to get some continuing education in order to change careers, so perhaps this is a better place to start.

Make a Game Plan

If you have trouble charting a course, the most important step you can take is to simply sit down and do it anyway. This may seem like a no-brainer, but sometimes, it can be hard to realize that the only thing you need in order to reach your final destination is a map. Begin by writing down your ultimate goal, and then brainstorm other, smaller steps that can help you get there. If you are working toward weight loss, for example, you might choose “setting aside a daily exercise time” or “making healthier dinners” as some of your smaller steps. From there, you can branch out into even smaller stages, including “looking up healthy recipes” and “writing down weekly grocery lists.” Soon, you will have a fully realized game plan that will lead you right to success.

Do What You Know

Losing confidence is one of the biggest detriments to an otherwise motivated person, and a low self-image can be very hard to bounce back from. You might find yourself feeling jealous, put down, or simply telling yourself that you cannot possibly succeed. When this happens, take some time to write down all of your strengths and positive qualities, and reflect back on the steps you have already taken toward achieving your goals. If possible, talk to clients, friends and family, or anyone who might have had some dealings with you along the way, and see if they can offer any words of encouragement. Although this may seem like a simple way to fight back, you will soon find yourself feeling much better about your abilities, and your motivation will be restored.

Chapter Seven – Motivation Plan Step One

In order to get started really motivating yourself, it is important to have a solid plan in mind. There are many different motivation plans that can help you make the most out of your life, and what works well for one person may not be as successful with someone else. In the following chapters, read through this sample motivation plan to help you get started, and consider tweaking it to fit your own personality and help you along your journey to a more motivated life.

Choose your Goal

It may go without saying, but before you can get motivated, you need to know what your ultimate goal is. Select a large goal, then pick several smaller goals to help you along the way. It may also be helpful to write down a list of reasons why this change in your life will make a difference, and why you have chosen it as your goal. When it comes to picking goals along the way, be sure to choose obtainable steps that will not leave you feeling frustrated.

Set up a Work Space

Even if your goals are physical in nature (such as quitting smoking or losing weight), it can be very helpful to have a section of your home devoted to your work. Of course, career goals and other creative endeavors can benefit even more from a dedicated work space, but no matter what you are striving to accomplish, you can find a great deal of help in simply having a room that is specifically yours. A work space can help you organize your thoughts, research, and more, and keep you focused when you sit down to think about your next step.

Chart your Motivation

There are times of the day when you are more inclined to succeed in working toward your goals, and times when you feel listless and unable to get anything done. Although it is important to fight back against laziness when it comes to staying motivated, you can do yourself a favor and select certain times of the day to work on your projects and personal improvement when you feel more up to it. Provided you have a somewhat flexible schedule, you might find that you exercise better first thing in the morning, or work well on your projects right after lunch.

Stock Up

It is important to stock up on what you need in order to achieve your goals before you get started working on them. For example, if you tell yourself that you want to start running every evening after dinner, but you cannot do it without the right pair of running shoes, do not hesitate to go out and buy your shoes right away. This way, you will not have any more excuses, and you will be able to get much more done on the path to your ultimate goal of getting in shape. This tip applies to everyone, regardless of goal, so do yourself a favor and stock up on any necessary items before you have a chance to talk yourself out of whatever you are working on.

Chapter Eight – Motivation Plan Step Two

Once you get started working on your motivation, it will soon become easy to stay in the swing of things. Unfortunately, this is also the point where many previously-motivated people simply cannot keep up with their initial energy, and they drop out of their game plan before they give it time to work for them. There are many different ways to keep yourself going strong during the low points along the way. Incorporate any or all of them into your motivational path, and soon you will find yourself sailing over your hurdles with ease.

Make it Difficult

Sometimes, it can be rewarding to set yourself unrealistic goals. When you feel like you have gotten into a rut with your work, consider setting some much more challenging goals that you might not otherwise be interested in. This way, you will be spurred on to work even harder than before, which may be just the push you need to get yourself out of the trenches and back onto the front lines.

Compare Yourself

Particularly if you are working toward a career change, you may find it beneficial at this point to look to your peers and see how well they are doing with similar projects. The desire to be as great as your peers can be an excellent driving force, and it may be the right way to get yourself back on track. Although it is important to never lose sight of your goals, and to not sell yourself short when it comes to what you are capable of, a little friendly competition between yourself and those around you can make a huge difference to the right kind of person.

Search for Ideas

When you get into a rut, you may have a lot of trouble finding new ideas to keep you moving along. Although your goals might not change, it can help to think of new concepts that add a refreshing twist to your game plan. Take a walk around your block, or go to a park for a stroll in the fresh air. Changing your surroundings, even for just an hour, can sometimes spark a new idea that you otherwise would never have thought of. During this time, try to get your mind off of your goals for just a little while, and let new ideas simply come to you in their own time.

Reevaluate your Game Plan

When all else fails, it may be time to rethink your strategy. Are you still working toward the same goal, or have your needs and desires changed over the course of your motivational journey? If you are still focusing on the same final goal, are there new ways you can work toward it? Have you come to understand that you have different strengths and weaknesses than you might have at first realized? Changing a few of the steps here and there can make your path a much easier one, and can help you get motivated with a fresh, new start.

Chapter Nine – Motivation Plan Step Three

What happens when you have managed to get yourself motivated in the first place, and then kept going strong during the second phase of your motivational game plan? Eventually, you will come to a point where it is time to shift into the third and final step of your motivational journey. When this time comes, you will be near to the end, and you will find that your goal is within sight. No matter what your goal may be—whether it is work related or some sort of personal improvement—you will one day find that it has become much more realistic than you might have originally thought. However, it is important not to get ahead of yourself, and to progress with the third stage of your motivation plan when you reach this point.

Stay Focused

It can be very difficult to stay focused when your ultimate goal is in sight. You may be tempted to skip the last few steps in your motivational plan, but be careful not to fall into this trap. If you jump over the last few steps, you may slip and fall, and you might end up right back where you started. For example, if you are trying to quit smoking through reducing your daily intake of nicotine, and you have worked your way down to two cigarettes a day, it is important to continue tapering off rather than skipping ahead to the final step. You may set yourself back and wind up smoking even more once again to cope. Similarly, if you are working on a major career project, do not cut corners at the last minute. You may finish your project, but it is sure to look less polished than you would have liked, and it might not benefit you in the long run.

Keep Working

You may find yourself more and more willing to slack off as you find yourself nearing the completion of your tasks, but this is a dangerous place to be. In the final stage of your motivational plan, it is even more important to push yourself to work hard no matter how you might feel. You may have some trouble forcing yourself to keep working on a project when you know you have very little left to do, and you might be tempted to stop and watch some of your favorite TV shows, for example, before you get back to it. Do not let this happen to you! You have already come so far, but you must keep moving in order to achieve your dreams. If you find yourself sinking into this potential problem area, you may benefit from giving yourself a few more last-minute obstacles to overcome. Tell yourself that you need to complete your next task in a very short amount of time, for example, and you will find yourself working hard to reach your challenging goals. In no time at all, you will be finished with everything you need to do, and you will be able to look back on how far you have come.

Chapter Ten – Quick Tips for Motivated People

Whether you are trying to get yourself motivated for the first time or looking for new ways to get back on track after a derailment on your path to success, these quick tips are sure to help. Keep them in mind for any time when you need an extra boost of motivational power.

Keep it in Check

You may begin your path to success feeling overwhelmingly excited about all of your new prospects, but if you do not keep this in check, you will find yourself tapering off almost immediately as you lose energy. Just as you cannot go from sitting on the sofa to running a marathon in a week, you also cannot force yourself to reach new levels of greatness without working hard at it first. Keep your excitement on hand for those times when you feel less motivated than usual, but do not let it take over, especially in the early stages of your path.

Stay Accountable

No matter what your goals may be, if you have someone to help keep you accountable for your actions, you are sure to do much better. Pick a friend or family member to be your buddy and work alongside you on the same or similar goals, or look for a forum or other online group for sources of motivation outside your personal circle. Sometimes, a group of strangers can help keep you even more motivated than your friends, so do not cast aside this possibility without trying it first!

Track Yourself

Even if you do not find someone to help keep you accountable, you can do the same thing for yourself if you keep track of your experiences. For example, if you are trying to motivate yourself to lose weight, you might feel let down when you do not notice a significant difference in your size over the course of a few months. If, however, you track yourself along the way, you will notice every shed pound and feel much better about yourself simply by virtue of seeing how far you have come.

Give Yourself a Reward

You probably already have plenty of incentive to work toward your goals, and incentive is excellent when it comes to keeping you motivated over the course of an entire project. If, however, you find yourself losing speed along the way, you may need to give yourself some rewards to make the smaller steps more bearable. Choose appropriate rewards for the size of your achievements, and enjoy them! For example, if you complete the first part of a major project for school or work, treat yourself to your favorite meal or a movie you have been wanting to see. This will help you relax, and it will also make you feel much better about meeting your smaller goals. Be sure that you do not choose rewards that will set you back, however, such as feasting on fatty foods if you are trying to lose weight. Your rewards should not hinder you in any way, but should give you plenty of reason to keep working.

Conclusion

By now, you should have a good working idea of what motivation is and how you can apply it to your daily life. You should understand the basic concepts of motivation, as well as the ways in which scholars and behavioral analysts think about this important abstract idea. You should also be more than prepared to go out there and get motivated to work toward something yourself. Remember to keep in mind the many pitfalls you might face along your way, and pay close attention to your strengths and weaknesses. With the right kind of education on the topic of motivation, you will be well on your way to achieving everything you ever could have imagined and more.

Of course, motivation is not always a simple matter. You may feel inspired right now, but as soon as you start thinking of goals, you might begin telling yourself that you cannot do it. You might come up with plenty of excuses to keep yourself from ever taking the first step toward a better life. If you find yourself faced with these difficulties, your best bet is to read through the previous chapters one more time. Pay close attention to your own feelings, and you will be able to see trends in yourself that you share with many others who are looking to get motivated as well. It is impossible to stay on a motivational high after your initial burst of excitement, but it is very important to work on ways to keep your energy flowing as you begin moving toward your personal improvement projects.

Once you have mastered the art of motivation in theory, it is time to put it into practice. Set aside a good chunk of one of your free days to work on everything you need to do in order to get started on your motivational journey. Collect all of the necessary items, make a game plan, and try to account for any potential problems that might arise along the way. Although it is impossible to plan for everything at this stage, a little pre-thinking is sure to go a long way. From there, you will have no trouble taking the first step toward your better, brighter future.

Of course, when motivation becomes like a second nature to you, you will then be able to help others get motivated as well. Share with them the tips that you have learned, and be sure to enlighten them on the meaning of motivation and its many different forms. When it comes down to it, one of the best ways to get motivated is to find support from a friend or family member who has been down the same road before. You can benefit from that kind of support yourself now, but it may feel even better when you are able to offer it to someone else in the future. If you start working on your own personal motivational skills early, you will someday be able to be a source of inspiration for someone else, which may motivate you even further.
