HOW WINNERS RECALIBRATE, RESTART, AND THRIVE 4 Highly Effective Ways to Stay Motivated
In a perfect world, we could snap our fingers and make a wish for the uncertain to become certain again, for the sailing to return to smooth and blissful. In the real world, that genie-in-a-bottle make-a-wish strategy doesn’t usually work. There is no quick fix to uncertainty.
I’m seeing some incredible opportunities for leaders to gain clarity for themselves and lead others with clarity. Change is difficult for most. Leveraging the circumstances that we’re currently enduring to become better could be the very thing you need that will get you to the next level.
BEING MOTIVATED WHEN YOU DON’T FEEL LIKE IT
Everyone is unique and is motivated by different things. Motivation is an emotion and understanding what motivates you can make the difference between success and failure.
In today's disruptive world our greatest untapped resource may be our own motivation. How do we stay motivated long enough to finish a project or even keep up with daily tasks when another emotion takes over? The more we know and understand ourselves, the more effective our efforts will be.
Understand Your Why Sometimes it's not so much the what or the how that matters, but you’re why--the purpose behind what you're doing. Being clear about what you're working for can give you the stimulus to stay on course.
Define your Goal Defined goals put your ideas into action mode. It's the vital step between planning and doing. When you have your goal(s), you'll automatically have a clearer vision. Something that you can relate to and resonate with.
If it doesn't speak to your heart, it won't motivate you to stay on target. Create the highest grandest vision possible, because you can achieve only what you see.
Produce a Plan Once you have a goal in place, a plan is will take your vision and break down the steps you need to get it done. A goal without a plan, as we know, is just a dream. But don't forget to look for the bigger picture too!
How does this relate not only to yourself but to others? How will it contribute to something important? Where will this make a difference? To accomplish more, think bigger.
Visualize Yourself Succeeding
Visualization is a powerful technique that can help you to focus, stay motivated, and achieve your goals. By creating a mental picture of yourself successfully completing a job, even the worst tasks can feel like part of achieving something big.
The idea is to see meaning in the unexpected, rather than see it as something anxiety-provoking. Everything that is unexpected is anxiety-provoking but it helps to reframe it into, “Oh that doesn’t need to be a threat.”
There can always be something beautiful in the unexpected, even if it doesn’t feel like it at the moment. If we can attune ourselves to the idea that the unexpected can be our ally, we can turn it into something if we connect the dots.
