3 ways to motivate yourself.
They are simple, but you still have to do them.
A key factor to being motivated is self-acceptance. Most of us look in the mirror and become uncomfortable. We don’t like what we see. That person looking back at us is unrecognizable.
With all the noise in the world today no wonder most of us don’t know where we are standing let alone know who we are and what we want.
I am amazed by the number of logos that people carry on their persons. Chris Do has said on multiple occasions that one of the main factors people seek is status. I tend to agree. A t-shirt with a corporate logo that costs you $20+ is a great example of your disassociation with yourself. Isn’t it ridiculous that the more you pay for something the more the logo is prominent?
People recognize one another by the logos they wear and whether they are worthy of one another. This is shameful on so many levels, but this is the world we live in today—a life of envy, gluttony, and greed. Aren’t those three of the 7 deadly sins? I am sure the other 4 sins are present as well.
- Every morning ask yourself who you are going to help today. Meditate on it and visualize it as reality. Get out of bed with a smile on your face as you know your purpose is not a selfish one. Hold yourself accountable to help that person today. It could be a friend, a family member, or a client. Remember, most people are on the defensive every single day of their lives, so an act of kindness will go a long way. This simple change helps you grow as a person. Generosity is a virtue, not a sin.
- When you open your eyes every day give thanks for the simple things such as being alive. Give thanks for your relationships. Give thanks for the roof over your head. Give thanks for the ability to think freely. Give thanks for the first cup of coffee. And, give thanks for your ability to make this world a better place. Being grateful is a natural stimulant.
- While enjoying your breakfast give yourself a high five for how awesome you are. Close your eyes and believe like Picasso, whatever you can imagine is real. How you envision yourself is what you are. The physical rewards might not be here yet, but the wonderful feeling is all yours right now. Your imagination is your success, so dream big.
Stay away from social media unless you are publishing. Do it sparingly. Make sure that what you share with the world is to their benefit and not yours. Give, give, and give some more. And last thought, stop wearing logos.
