There are countless ways of self-motivation. Success in its self is the best way to motivate. However, people like me who wait endlessly for miracles to happen following ways are regarded as adequately efficient. Let’s have a look at them;
5. This time shall pass
The number one motivator amongst all coming next ways for motivation towards success. There is a story attached to it once a king told his wise minister I want a ring with the carved message if I see it in sadness, I feel happy and when in happiness it makes me feel sad.
He went and came with a carved ring to him. The words were, “this time shall pass” it was exactly what the king desired. Whatever situations you are facing either good or bad remember my friend that this time shall pass.
4. Your time will come
We as a whole in this society of distraction and time-wasting systems don’t really value time. While in reality, this time is life. We all have very short lives to live. Sometimes some people realize life when they are going to die. Death makes them realize that they haven’t lived life in their whole life.
When we are children we think and say to ourselves when we will be young we will start living life. When we are young we say when we have a happy life we will start living. After being happy in adult life with business, family and friends we think ourselves when we will retire we will start living. Only on the death bed, we realize that we have lost our lives in search of meaningless titles, money and everything we have and we can’t take anything with us.
Isn’t it a waste of time crying over the split milk? The time is now right this moment. We don’t know for sure whether we will live today, tomorrow or day after tomorrow. Believing that your time will come is just daydreaming if you are not doing anything to make that day happen.
I have said this countless times to people around me that imagination should be used for the construction of future, not destruction. Living life in advance is a misuse of imagination.
3. Work with your heart
Everything follows your direction if you are doing whatever it might be with a heart. The real game starts with finding that specific reason or the meaning of your life. I know that the time is tough, the financial crisis is eating you alive, you have to pay your dues, your children fees, bills and you are literally behind your dreams and bills.
Yet don’t stop running back to your work, the work which doesn’t make you tired, it pushes your sleep away, the first thing when you wake up and the last thing when you are going to sweet dreams is this then that is the work you should go for.
It doesn’t matter whether you are employed, unemployment, entrepreneur or solopreneur if you are working on your heart you will succeed no matter what it takes, no matter how long it takes. If you are giving every piece of your desire you have in your heart it will take you worlds unseen, it will lead you to forbidden treasure island, you will discover that you are the reflection of your dreams.
2. Don’t fear
Fear is a compass that I have explained in this post. The compass is used to determine the direction of the destination. Fears are here to show you what you should be doing or what you need to do to live, healthy, wealthy and wise. They are not here to stop you they are here to show you how really you want something.
Instead of fear to stop you, you should welcome it by embracing it. Just two of the things will happen either fears will fail you or you will fail them to fail you. In either way you are champion. If fears failed you, you will be wise enough to fail them in the next fight. If you failed them they will realize that you are not the man or woman they should mess up.
So, fearing the fears which paralyzing you is just a waste of time, energy and resources. While fear fearing you should be your motivation moto. Just repeat after me, fears I will not say why me I will always say try me.
1. Remember your death bed
I have found this mindset super motivational in times of distress and crisis. Especially after a long character building day when it feels like everything is on your nerve.
When you wake up late, your children are waiting for you to drive the school, wife is expecting and you are going to show up for appointment for regular check-up, stuck a traffic due to protest, your car fuel is crying for help, your employer calling you to show up for the most important annual meeting.
Your subordinate calls you that they can’t come due to an emergency. Friends call you that they have a party at your place tonight you have planned for. The principal will call you inquiring about your children’s absence. So, dear friend you are among the dance of dragons.
It makes you exhausted however if you remember your death bed at this time you will feel motivated. You will proactively delegate tasks you can. And do the remaining with ease and motivated heart and with your full energy.
On the death bed, you will realize that you have a lot to do and death angel is there asking you to come back to your real home, and you welcome and start your journey ahead without any delay. Without any attachment with your leftovers. Without any regrets without any sorrow or despair. But with thrill, excitement and wondering for the best to come.
The death bed is the only motivator which say to you that take life and its issues lightly, smiles more, enjoy more, share and care more. The life is too short to waste on hate and grudges love more, stay happy start acting like you are going to die this moment just look then you will drop everything not important for your personal, emotional and mental growth.
These were those five mindsets which make me motivated throughout my day, I hope it will motivate you too if you are fighting with demons of negativity. I hope it will make your day. What do you think about my list of mindsets? Let me know in the comments below…
Have a nice day…
