Understanding the Concept of Self-Motivation…
To be successful – you’ll need to be motivated to do the things that work and exert willpower to avoid those that tend to take away your efficiency. You’re the main tool for your success – and it’s only you who’ll be able to take your business and life to greater heights.
Don’t be afraid to tap into your emotions when you’re trying to set your goals. In fact, this can even make things more effective on your end. After all, if you have an emotional connection to your goals – then you’ll likely work harder to achieve them.
Aside from motivating yourself through your emotions, there’s another type of motivation that you might want to know as well. This is “financial self-motivation.” Now, let’s discuss this further:
Financial self-motivation is about using your goal of having better financial stability as the motivating factor to keep you striving for business success. Financial self-motivation is also about using prospective financial rewards for motivational purposes.
In order to make this mind-setting strategy work, you need to align yourself with your goals. This will ultimately give you the willpower to do the things that will produce results, build profits – eventually leading to a better business.
Remember: put your goals and motivational rewards in the proper alignment. This is the main key. If your goal is to lose weight, then the rewards would be becoming healthier and looking better. If you want to quit smoking, then the reward would be having a longer life. If your goal is to be more productive in business – then think of the financial rewards that will make your business and personal life better. These specific factors will motivate you for specific goals.
Here are some tried and tested motivational techniques to help you reach your goals:
The Vision Board
Many successful people have been using vision boards to motivate themselves to do better at what they do. This is actually a collage of pictures that will motivate and inspire you to do the things that you need to do to succeed. These pictures or “goals” can come in all shapes and sizes – from a Bugatti car to a high-rise apartment in an uptown neighborhood. Take note though: the most expensive items in your vision board don’t have to be the ones that motivate you the most. It all really depends on your preferences and what holds greater weight for you.
Think about affirmations this way: If you say something over and over again – you will eventually believe what you’ve been saying to yourself, and this will serve as the motivating factor that will make you a better and more successful person.
Now, let’s associate affirmations with running a business. If you constantly tell yourself “I hate my job” every time you run into a problem – then chances are, you will end up not being able to do anything. In fact, it may even make matters worse.
On the other hand, if you constantly tell yourself “I deserve to have a better life,” 5 times a day for several months – then you’ll start believing that you do deserve a better life. Consequently, this will make you motivated to work as hard as you can.
Take Advantage of the Digital World (and Prepare for Its Distractions As Well)
The Web has made business transactions more cost-effective and more convenient, making it the perfect platform for those who are looking for the best business opportunities or who want to make their businesses a whole lot better. And you know what? The importance of the Internet will continue to grow – and you should ride this wave while it’s still early.
However, with the emerging opportunities that the virtual platform offers, come different types of distractions which may eliminate the goals that you’re striving for. Therefore, you’ll need to use and learn new techniques, and try to acquire new abilities that will allow you to focus on the tasks at hand – and take advantage of what the Web offers.
Here are some tips to help you rid yourself of the distractions that may put your business success at risk:
- Don’t visit social networking sites while you’re at work.
- Turn off your phones when you’re doing important work.
- Stop obsessing about your emails and text messages.
Let me repeat: Always keep your focus. A distraction, regardless of how minimal it is, can actually affect when and how quickly you return to your work. In fact, minimal distractions can get bigger and bigger if you allow them to. You need to be careful and just be free of them as much as possible.
These are just some of the mind-setting techniques you should use to achieve your personal and business goals. In the end, what’s important is that you’re able to produce more results, enhance your business operations and ultimately, gain more profits for your business.
