Motivation Tips Part 10

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

  • Forgive yourself.
Are you being too demanding with your expectations? If so, forgive yourself! It’s okay to push yourself out of your comfort zones and strive for growth and progress, but there is no need to bully yourself into achieving the goals you’ve set. Do what you can, try to do better than you’ve done in the past, and let your progress happen more naturally. With a slightly more relaxed approach, you may find your motivation returning naturally also!
  • Let your intuition guide you.
Sometimes your lack of motivation might be a strong message from your intuition that you are working toward the wrong goals! Ask your inner self to provide insight on goals that might be more in alignment with your life path. You may be surprised to learn that your goals aren’t right for you at all . . . or you simply need to make a tiny adjustment to change everything for the better.
  • Invite creative inspiration.
Sometimes the solutions you seek have nothing to do with logical thinking at all. Tap into your creative inspiration and see if it has something valuable to share. You can do this by engaging in creative pursuits like artwork, writing, musical instruments, or simple daydreaming. Here’s the important thing: when you do receive a creative insight, don’t analyze it to death! See if you can find a way to integrate it with your existing plans, or if you have to alter your existing plans without too much trouble, go ahead. You may be surprised by how effective this process is, and how quickly your motivation returns along with your creative insight.
  • Release limiting messages from others.
You may be letting the negative preconceptions of others invade your mind and deplete your motivation. Release them by  verbally stating that you are releasing the hold these damaging messages have on you. Try something like this: “I hereby release any internal messages of limitation, lack or inability that may have been instilled in me by others. These are not my beliefs, and therefore do not belong in my mind or body. I let them go, and I forgive the bearers of such messages. I believe that they do not mean to cause harm to me; they simply cannot see the same vision I see for my own life, just as I am unable to see their vision. I reclaim my life purpose and I embrace the courage and desire to follow it with joy and gratitude.”
  • Trust your vision . . . it’s bigger than you are!
Remember that your dream is about more than just YOU! You must believe that you are NOT working alone in your endeavors. Whether you believe in the assistance and guidance of universal or spiritual forces, or you simply believe that you have untapped potential within you – trust that your vision is achievable.
  • Focus on serving others.
Making it as your mission to contribute something of value to the world is one of the best motivators of all time. Find a way to serve others AND make your own life better at the same time. It’s very easy to do, and when you find the right combination to achieve this, you will be awed and amazed at how quickly your dreams will be realized. When you see the powerful ways  your contributions have an effect on others around you, you’ll never be short of  being motivated again – in fact, you’ll probably have to guard against burnout because you’ll become so addicted to the feeling of making a powerful difference in the world.

Simple Strategies And Steps To Building The Life You REALLY Want

Monday, April 19, 2010

Do you feel stuck and need simple and practical ideas to move your life forward?

Are you in a rut and want to find simple strategies to making ever lasting change?

There are so many different and varying approaches to how you can work on your personal growth and development that it can often look very complex. A good starting point is to look for what connects with you and look for ideas and strategies that have a common sense approach.

One great way is to read as much as you can on personal development and attend workshops, seminars and complete exercises and programs.

The next step is to take the required ACTION. Nothing is going to change unless you do something differently to the way you are doing things today.

One of the key and simple action steps to take in any area of personal growth and in building the life that you really want, is to write things down on paper.

Writing things down on paper has such power.

Writing things down can clarify and summarize your thoughts, your ideas and goals, your concerns and your beliefs. When writing these things down, you can start to see more clearly where you are going now and more importantly, where you want to go in the future.

Often when you write down something that has been worrying you, seems complex or there is simply so much stuff going on in your head, it all suddenly appears more simplistic when you see it in black and white or a solution can come to you more quickly.

A personal journal or diary is a great thing to have and use everyday to keep all the associated notes. Use it everyday and it will become your constant companion and best friend. It is a great place to use as a gratitude diary, to list al the everyday things that you are grateful for but may take for granted. It can become your reminder of all the things you need to do today. You will have at your fingertips, everything that you need and in one place. You will gain huge benefits from reading through your list of things to do every day and for personal goal setting for the week, the month or the year. You will find that as you use your journal diary, you will decide what things you want to write down and in what classifications, so make sure you find a book that will give you the ability to personalize for yourself.

Reading is a powerful tool and when you are reading through personal development and self help books, you can make notes on new ideas and the things that seem to sit with best with you. Or if are going to a personal development seminar, the same principals apply. Take notes on all the key points and on what resonates with you. If you keep the notes simple, concise and easy to understand, you can have this on hand to read and re-read and put into use every day.

These notes from personal development seminars, programs or from books that you read, can often trigger the response I know that, but if you really think about it the real response is more likely to be I should have know that. A follow on from I should have know that, is to take it to the next level and actually DO something.

We can all read the books, go to the seminars and think we already know that, but unless we are prepared to actually DO something then we are not on the right road to making lasting change to our lives.

As with any area of personal development, if you take the action steps, you really can not go wrong in building your dream life.
