Motivation is not a constant force, and it’s sometimes difficult to generate the energy and focus to complete important tasks. We’ve noticed that when people attempt to find some motivation to fulfil their responsibilities, they frequently look to external factors. However, the Alliance Concepts training program teaches us that motivation is strongest when it comes from within.
One way to get in touch with your inner motivation is to remember the purpose behind whatever it is you need to do. You might not be terribly motivated to write in your journal every day, for instance, but it will help if you remind yourself why you should do it. Remember that journaling helps you organize your thoughts, gives you clarity, and helps you prioritize.
At Alliance Concepts, we’ve noticed that motivation occasionally wanes when we’re confronted with a daunting project. When the big picture seems too overwhelming, we shift our focus on the small details that will help us move toward the ultimate objective. Accomplishing (and celebrating) each milestone is a great way to build momentum.
Maybe you’ve been told that visualizing your success will help summon some motivation. While this is useful advice, we’ve discovered that it’s also helpful to visualize failure. Imagine what your life will look like in a month, a year, and five years if you fall short of your goal. The thought will likely be an eye-opener – enough to give you a kick in the pants.
You have the power to control your success. These techniques from Alliance Concepts will give you the push you need to do so.
