Motivational Techniques & Ways To Take Action
We all want to take action, but sometimes it can be easier said than done, here are some quick nuggets to help you get started…
1. Surround Yourself With People Who Are Already Doing What You Dream To Do!
It can really be easy to slip into a comfort zone and having a bit of healthy competition can really help us put in that extra 10%.
Also having someone around you who is better than you in that particular field or further ahead will give you a higher (but more productive) target to achieve…
For example if you aim to bench 150kg and your training partner is world record holder of the bench press chances are whatever the hell that person is doing it sure as hell works!
It makes sense to at least listen and take heed – sub consciously we naturally perform better when the bar or the level of intensity is raised!
2. Understand The Value Of Time!
Time seems to go faster the older you get, time isn’t something to be taken for granted – it is the most valuable thing we have/haven’t got.
We cannot control time but as Einstein said “everyone has 24 hours in a day & 7 days in a week” it’s all about what you do in that time which makes the difference!
Time also governs the value of our income! No I don’t mean inflation I mean in terms of how much we earn, let me explain…
You earn $100 a hour that is pretty good! Well done!
If you earn $100 in a month that is not so good, what governs the value or gives the wage it’s desirability (or lack of)?
The more you earn in a shorter space of time means a bigger paycheck, the more productive and constructive things you get done in a certain amount of time means a bigger yield for getting things done!
Waking up a hour or even half an hour earlier helps, organising your day and being strict with your time is a great start.
Protect your time and don’t let people waste your time, be sure to treat your time with respect and value, watch out for time wasters who will deliberately drain,waste and stall your time with pointless ventures and activities.
3. Get A Small White Board & Write A Little To-Do List Before You Go Bed!
Really easy simple task you can do to keep on-top of the little things that need doing, go and buy a small whiteboard get a pen and every evening before going to bed just put a little list of things you need to get done within the next 24 hours.
It could be anything!
This helps you stay focused and not forget those annoying little chores plus it is a great feeling knowing that you’ve been productive and got all the crap out the way, from there on you can relax and enjoy your day!
4. Don’t burn out, Rest & Treat Yourself!
Probably the most important… You got to know when to just take a rest, don’t be afraid to treat yourself once in a blue moon!
We all deserve to have some time to recharge and by just sitting back and reflecting we can understand things more.
Sounds crazy but in some cases going away and having a quick nap can help reset the brain and help your concentration levels boost, although that isn’t advisable in a lot of situations but the logic makes sense.
So feel free to give yourself a well earned break!
