Three Simple Ways to Motivate Yourself

When you feel unmotivated, changing your mind-set can seem as strenuous as hauling yourself out of a sticky pit of mud. Not only do you feel unmotivated, you feel unmotivated about trying to GET motivated!

Fortunately, your mind is susceptible to persuasion – if you use the right stimulators.

Here are 3 simple ways to motivate yourself:

Remind yourself why your goal is important.

Sometimes it’s easy to lose your motivation if the end result doesn’t seem as important as it did when you first set the goal. Most of us are fired up with enthusiasm when we first set our goals, but over time that fire dies down.

To rekindle the flames of motivation, revisit your goal in full detail! If you kept notes about what you wanted to achieve, re-read them now. If not, take a trip down memory lane. What will your goal do for you? Why was it once important to you? Is it still important to you? Important enough to override the temptation to avoid working on it?

What about this goal is EXCITING TO YOU?!

If this activity isn’t sufficient to get you moving again, then maybe it’s time to re-evaluate your priorities and set some NEW goals that get your blood pumping again.

Give yourself a push.

Very often, it’s the start that is the most difficult part! Even when you don’t feel like working on something, pushing yourself to get started can often shake off the last vestiges of resistance and put you on the right track again.

I like to play a little trick on myself: when I really don’t feel like working on something, I’ll tell myself that I have to put in at least 15 minutes of time on it. I promise myself that if, after 15 minutes have passed I still don’t want to keep working on it, I can stop. This almost always works for me. Once I get involved in what I’m doing I have no trouble keeping up the momentum.

Whatever you have to do to “trick” yourself into getting started, do it. Once you’re rolling along, you probably won’t want to stop.

Also, recognize the key word here - resistance. Resistance is an internal feeling that opposes getting into action. Put your attention on the feeling, bring the feeling of opposition to the surface, take a deep breath and notice the feeling dissolve. Keep doing this until the resistance is minimal - or gone.

Set a compromise.

If all else fails, try bargaining with yourself with rewards. Promise yourself that you can spend the rest of the evening watching whatever you want on television if you first work on your goals for an hour or two. Or promise to buy yourself a new outfit if you stick to your workout plan each day this week.

There are two important things to keep in mind with this technique.

First, keep your promises realistic. Don’t promise yourself the moon to try to motivate yourself, because somewhere deep inside you’ll know you are lying to yourself. Second, be sure to honor the promises you make to yourself! If you get into the habit of making promises you don’t keep, your mind will become ever more resistant to compromise.

No matter which method of motivation works best for you, the 3 suggestions above have one thing in common: a decision to take action. You can play all the mind games you want, but if you’re not willing to move out of inertia and get moving, a motivated mind-set won’t help a bit.

I could share a dozen more techniques (at least) - but I'll give you my secret as a bonus.

It's ALL About State of Mind

You can coerce, bribe, release, compromise, motivate - even punish yourself increase the pain for 'not doing' - but it all comes down to state of mind and feelings. If you're in the right state of mind, then things flow. You know what I mean - it's all about being "in the zone".

The difference between the times when you're 'in the zone' and when you're stuck in neutral banging your head against a brick wall comes down to brainwave state and feelings.

You can do something about both by using a program like our Laser Focus audio. By simply listening while working you tune your brainwaves into that frequency you experience when you're locked on the target, totally focused on your objective and able overcome the feelings of resistance that keep you from doing what you SAY you want to do.

We offer a free trial demo that you can listen to right now - although it's only 10 minutes long (the actual program is an hour long and more powerful), you'll get the idea and experience the effect of how our Holothink technology can help you overcome procrastination, defeat attention deficit disorder like symptoms and really get things done faster than you thought possible through the power of focus.

Fancy machines can measure specific brainwave frequencies. To achieve a totally switched-on state, simply listen to the right frequency to "switch-on".
