Motivation is like every other commodity that can be lost and found. The only problem we have is that a lot of people don’t know how to find lost motivation.
A lot of efforts have been misdirected in the wrong direction all in the name of finding lost motivation. Motivation would be like a mirage when one is not equipped with the right skill of finding it. The good news is that steps needed to be taken to find lost motivation is not a rocket science. And even if it is, it is still human beings that learn rocket science.
In this article are some simple non-technical steps that can be taken to find our lost motivation. Enjoy!
EASING OUT TENSION
Though, some people will argue that fear is a motivating factor; I have no problem with that as some fear can actually act as a motivating factor. What I have problem with is when your allow tension to creep in and chase out the inherent motivation in we all. Easing out tension and comporting yourself is one easy way of finding your lost motivation.
TELLING YOURSELF THE TRUTH
There is no greater harm you can do to your self as an individual as not telling yourself the truth. You can never know your true worth if you don’t tell yourself the truth and this will lead you into believing you can do things you actually can not do; and failure will be the result and this will make you lose motivation. So another good way of finding motivation is to keep ‘positive thinking’ within check. Positive thinking should be aligned with reality. You will end up getting yourself hurt and de-motivated if you venture into fields that you are not ready for.
FINDING OUT THE ‘WHY’ HIDDEN WITHIN THE ‘HOW’
You will find your lost motivation if can simply try to find out the reason behind what you are doing. Passionately asking yourself: why am I doing this? will help ignite your will-power to face the challenges of life squarely. As soon as answer to the why is provided, the motivation for the ‘how’ will be recovered.
THANKSGIVING AND POSITIVE STOCK TAKING
Developing a thankful heart will help release the dormant energy within you. A thankful heart will give you motivation to take stock of the numerous good things that life has treated you with in the past.
VISUALIZING THINGS WITH YOUR MIND’S EYE
The power behind vision cannot be undermined. You may or may not believe things that you hear, but, you must believe things that you see. So, visualizing the benefits of achieving your task will burst you into motivation that may have been lost.
Finding your lost motivation is not something that you can do once and expect to get a lifetime result, you need to be actively involved in this process of finding your lost motivation. You can also find your lost motivation by knowing the causes of loss of motivation.
