Motivation Advice – 3 Tips For Instant Inspiration
It’s been a busy post processing week, going from out of the camera photo to creating art. The problem I had was in the naming. Every piece I create I give a name and sometimes that name is hard to come by. In a name, there are times when it’s obvious and then there are times when I have to wait for the name to tell me it’s true nature. So I’ve been waiting around for name inspiration.
When the hen house was finished I was aware of a certain vacuum – I needed a new project. I like to see tangible progress towards a meaningful end. So does most of the human race! A project with a sense of purpose generates its own energy and brings follow magazines – the second level. And the greater the purpose, the stronger the energy.
Your brain actually resists the change; not because it is trying to make things hard for you, but it does so for a very good reason. Your brain’s basic function is to keep you safe. Its main interest is your survival.
Start paying attention to what catches your eye and take note. Where or what inspires you? Some common sources include pictures, childhood memories, favorite movies, books or pieces of music, friends, family, and pets, travel destinations you may or may not have been to, works of art, nature, seasons, holidays, celebrities and more. Did you find anything that you like, that stimulates your mind to creative thought or the making of art? Congratulations! You found inspiration!
It is a science to motivate people and keep them motivated. In the home based business programme, there are too many people who start but lose interest after some time. The rate of failure is too high. If failure is being defined as people not achieving in the industry what they believed they could or should have achieved, the real reason for this must be determined. My view is that the importance of the correct application of the basic theories of motivation is not being applied correctly in the industry.
If what you want to achieve is important to you and you don’t feel motivated, just do it anyway without feeling motivated! Make the decision to do it. Yes this might take an act of will, discipline and determination. Yes it might be unpleasant, require a commitment and you might even have to give up something else. Yet you do it because you know the end result, your goal and that is more important than whether you feel motivated or not. The problem is that most people focus on what they have to give up rather than focussing on the long term gain.
Self-discipline is not a part of motivation. If you take all the motivation in the world but fail to exercise self-discipline and put action behind it you will fail. Failing is OK if you learn from your failures and change the things that made you fail in the first place. But if your failure if due to a lack of action then it’s not really failure it simply a lack of action. Self-discipline requires you to actually go forward with your goals. Take regular small steps towards your final achievement destination. Motivation by itself won’t get you there. The only thing that will make your dreams come true is action.
This is a day you will remember for the rest of your life, so make sure to take the time to figure out exactly what you want. Try not to get discouraged with too many outside opinions. And most importantly, don’t forget, this is your day!!
