Do You Know How to Shift from Procrastination to Motivation?
4:59 pm est
We've all been there before. You know what you need to do, to get moving toward your goals, but you just haven’t
be able to bring yourself to do it.
Perhaps you’ve been feeling stuck and going nowhere fast.
problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation,
it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they
create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two
main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You'd be
surprised how far that gets you." - Neil deGrasse Tyson
So, I’d like to share seven quick-and-easy tips you can use to shift into motivation mode, in no time flat.
#1: Rock It! Grab your headphones and your favorite playlist and turn up the volume a little. Make sure it's
music that will really get you pumped up-- exciting and uplifting.
#2: Move it, move it!
Ever heard the phrase,
"Motion creates emotion?" Well, now you have, so do it! Go for a jog, grab yourself
by the collar and drag yourself to the gym, or just go for a
brisk walk and get the blood flowing.
Relax and restore! Find a quiet place and meditate.
Spend 5 or 10 minutes and completely relax, focus on your
breathing and silence your mind.
#4: Use imagery skills! What's your motivating driver?
Wanting that new electric car? Request a catalog from the dealer. A vacation in Maui? Print out a picture from the net
or clip one from a magazine. Now tape it to your wall, feel the excitement and put yourself in the picture!
#5: Get Help! Want to really get moving? Have your friends hold you accountable. Jump on
and tell others about your BIG goal. Now update them on your progress once per day. If that doesn't work for you, perhaps
a professional Life-Coach is in order. The fastest way to create changes is through working with the subconscious mind using
hypnosis and NLP.
#6: Step Back! Take a second to see the big picture.Doing the mundane, everyday
work may be dull but if it's leading you to your BIG goal then it will all be worth it. Stop and think about what you're
#7: Reality Check! Take a few minutes and write down 10 things that will
happen if you DON'T get motivated. (No good, right?!) Now, rip that paper to shreds and write down ONE thing you're
going to do TODAY that will take you in the right direction.
