Positive Energy Creates Positive Motivation
This is my personal opinion so make note of it. I truly believe that anyone looking to be more self motivated should make a list of all of the positive emotions they find joy and happiness in expressing. Also list the emotions that drive you crazy, make you unhappy and all around stimulate negative feelings.
Use this list as a driving force. Concentrate your personal energy on the positive aspects of your list. Jot down details that enhance and promote these positive emotions. This information will shed much light on who you "feel like" you are and who you want to cultivate toward becoming a more motivated, take action person.
What Stops Your Motivation
The negative side of your list is the force that stops you dead in your tracks. Take a long hard look at what you have listed. Everything that promotes negative emotions stands in the way of your goals to be a more self motivated individual. The negative side of your list may take the most work to overcome.
Each time you let a negative emotion take hold of your spirit you are shooting yourself down. It really does not matter what the situation is. What matters is how you let it affect your being. How you let it guide you in either direction is where you will end up. With that said, it is easy to see how emotions drag us around by the nose.
Make A Commitment to Include Disciplined Motivation
Now I urge you to write down your goals. Short term and long term. Write down daily goals and make a commitment to finish each item on your list. Cross off each thing you accomplish. This should become a habit so be self disciplined in making it happen.
Do the same thing with weekly, monthly and quarterly goals. Set yourself up with long term goals. Long term goals can be illustrated by making a Dream Board. Have fun doing this. It is a very inspirational way to create motivation. You can even do this right Online creating a Digital Dream Board.
Read Yourself To Motivation
I would like to also suggest that reading, listening to and watching motivational information is very helpful in keeping a positive outlook. There is always room to improve on your personal motivation. Allow yourself time to take in a variety of motivational venues to create an ongoing personal awareness of your personal development. You can motivate yourself toward more accomplishment.
Self Motivation Is A Practice In Self Discipline
Self monitoring your emotions is a practice in self discipline. You can learn to concentrate your spiritual energy by concentrating your thoughts and feelings in a positive direction. Use the list you created to remind you of all the ways you feel positive about yourself. These are the things you want to seek out and cultivate.
You will also want to use your list to remind you when you are allowing those negative feelings to drive your actions. The more you practice seeking the positive feelings and avoiding the negative ones the closer you come to creating good motivational habits within your personal energy.
Self Discipline Comes With Practice
Just do it! Once you make yourself take action you will find gratification in your accomplishment. This gratification is a positive emotion. The positive feelings you experience become the driving force that pushes you toward more motivation. This becomes a cycle that will grow and develop as you continue to work toward creating positive emotions as your driving force.
I really believe the more you "just do it" the better you feel about yourself and the more you will want to do. Time will create the habit of self discipline and self motivation. If you are really in a slump then take it slow but be consistent. Start by doing something you feel motivated to accomplish for just a brief time. Make yourself go there. Spend just fifteen or twenty minutes at the same time each day putting your positive motivations to work for you.
Soon you will find that you look forward to the time you are spending, cultivating your positive motivations. Be gentle on yourself. If things do not turn out the way you expect, do NOT be brutal to yourself. Give yourself the opportunity to look at the situation as a learning experience. You can seek what is learned from the experience and apply it to the next time you practice your habit of self motivation and self discipline.
Repetition Builds Self Motivation
I am a highly motivated individual but it is not always the case. I am human and I sometimes feel the pressures of too much negative emotion infiltrating my spirituality. This is when I retreat. I back up and punt so to speak. When I feel closed in, pent up and stopped dead in my tracks I turn to Mother Nature. There I go to seek more positive inspirations.
I make a practice of this too. It is a sort of soulful refueling and something I do on a regular basis. It is a positive habit and one I have become addicted to. The repetition of such positive self disciplines help keep me on a track filled with motivation. Motivation leads to accomplishments.
