A-Z Motivation Tips For Success
What Is Motivation?
Every person has a different opinion about What Motivation Really Is. Some people explain it as a mental force that lets a person accomplish a goal, such as finishing or completing a task, achieving success in some areas in life, etc. Some people think that motivation is the reason why some people do one thing and others do something altogether different.
It is what pulls them to do that thing with a desire. That pull from within desiring to do a thing is called motivation. Many times motivation determines the habits and behaviors of a human being. It is also setting and achieving certain goals in life. It is sometimes considered as the push that leads you to your goal.
And most important motivation is believed to be the reason why a person chooses to do a particular thing, whether it is to start a business, make sales, and applying for a certain job. In the term of psychology, motivation is a behavior which is about initiation, direction, intensity, and persistence involved in it.
Motivation is about having an interest in your heart and a desire to do something. And it is also an ability and willingness for completion. Motivation however is not the same as personality or emotions. Motivation is a dynamic and temporal state of your mind.
A person can be motivated to accomplish a short-term goal or maybe a long-term goal. If you are motivated to achieve a long-term goal, you can also separate it into small series or goals in order. This can be done to make it easier to achieve the end result.
Sometimes the motivation to work towards any achievements or goals can change. And many times circumstances make it required for a person to change the level of their motivation. There is an individual personality that is a permanent part of his/her characteristics (that doesn’t change).
Such characteristics may be such things as modest, introverted, shy, conscientious, maybe loud, and so on. When we cope with many situations in life we feel sad, happy, confused, frustrated, and angry. These are emotions and do not automatically correlate with your behavior but your motivation does.
Motivation can be broken down into 2 categories, internal motivation, & external motivation.
What is Internal Motivation?
The desire to do something from within is called an internal or intrinsic motivation. However, the external incentives may not matter much in the case of internal motivation. The most important thing about internal motivation is that you will always enjoy what you will do to achieve what you want.
What is External Motivation?
External motivation is like an external incentive that pulls you to achieve something in life. This is seen in many workplaces where you get a bounty or incentive. In order to get that incentive, you are externally motivated and willing to do anything to achieve it. Many people respond very well to these external motivations. If you learn to use both the external and internal motivation that will supercharge you for success
A Tip on Self Motivation and You:
If you happen to be a person who is disciplined, organized, and goal-oriented which means that you have the skills required to motivate yourself. It means that you realize what achievement means and how motivation works. In order for you to become the person that you want to become, you need the right motivation.
Motivation is short live and temporary, hence it requires to be strengthened constantly to achieve success. Sometimes anxiety and negative thoughts come into play and we become de-motivated about our future. Learn to accept your failures and disappointments as your lesson in life to improve yourself to the next level. If someone has the real will and commitment to be successful, the more failure he faces, the stronger he becomes. It’s all about your will and the decision you made.
A person who is internally motivated knows how to use failures and rejections, to his advantage. He always learns how to nurture it into a positive outcome.
The Essential Keys to Self-improvement & Motivation:
So, what are the 3 keys to self-improvement and motivation for success in life?
1. Have Inspiration:
Inspiration is very important in order to stay motivated and improving yourself. If you don’t enjoy what you do your motivation level will never be high and you will lose interest to do, pretty soon. Learn to examine yourself and your inspiration. Are you excited about what you do or is it out of compulsion?
There are people who do things to look good from the outside, but in reality, they have no interest or passion to do it. These individuals will grow uninterested and weary pretty fast. Because they have no passion and inspiration, in order to sustain them during difficult times.
If you don’t like what you do, then it’s time to reconsider your goals. Is that work leading to the goals you want? If the answer is yes then, you need to change your work strategy. Because without inspiration there will be no motivation.
2. Set Your Goals:
In order to succeed you need to set short-term and long-term goals as well. This is vital for your success. If you don’t set your goals you will never have a definite purpose to improve yourself. When you are unsure about what you want, you will never be motivated.
The moment you clearly see what you really want in life, there will be an internal motivation from within. Take your time to write your goals on a piece of paper. This is how it works, when you see what you want, daily you will start taking action in order to achieve it. Also, write down your own action plans too, and update them from time to time.
Include small goals that can be accomplished in days or weeks. And also write down bigger goals for a year or two. Always refer to these plans throughout the year. But can a business plan or goals really help motivate you? Of course, the written goal or the picture of what you want always pulls you to achieve your goals. You feel more and more connected to it every day.
3. Networking with Successful People:
Another important factor in staying motivated is to network with people who have the same goal as you. Keep it a priority to especially associate with people who have already reached that destination. No single person has complete knowledge of everything. However, when a number of like-minded people work together, the room for error will be much reduced.
Any challenges will be conquered and many effective strategies can be discovered. When someone works in isolation, there may be many unnecessary errors, and the achievement of goals may be prolonged. It is one of the most difficult things to do. Without the help of others, you can never be improved faster. Mutual support is motivation by itself.
Learn to connect with a like-minded community, whether it is an organization or an online community. This is how you will build a foundation for your knowledge. Even if your business is different, you will always find a common ground to improve together.
Many successful people testify that networking with right-minded people was a turning point in their life. If you work together with such people your results will be multiplied pretty fast. Sharing ideas, experience and expertise is also an invaluable aspect of motivation and improvement.
You will always see room for improvement for yourself and at the same time, you might be able to help others. It’s a win/win situation. When you network with like-minded achievers, you will get to your goal in less time. You will also enjoy it more in the process.
The A-Z Motivation Tips for Success in Life:
Sometimes because of pain people change. When you get bad grades in college, you realize you need to study hard. When you get debt, you realize the inability and failure to use your income and resources in an effective way. At the moment in life when you are being humiliated, you develop the courage to fight back the next time.
We sometimes face many bitter experiences and tragedies in life. Even if we face many things in life, we need to learn to get up and walk again. With all the things happening in life, negative events, and influence, how can you stay motivated and positive?
Try these tips on what A – Z stands for, your motivation in life.
A is for achieving Your Dreams:
Always avoid negative people, things, and maybe places, in your life. Avoid those, which are trying to drag you down. The real future belongs to only those who truly believe in the beauty of a dream.
B Stands for Belief:
Believe in yourself always and in what you can do with your life. Learn to believe in your possibilities and also in your dreams. There has been much advancement in human history. This is because someone believed in themselves and their dreams.
C for Consideration:
It's about considering all of the angles and aspects of everything you face in life, whether it is people or maybe situations. Real motivation comes from the strength of the right purpose in life. When you are able to see both sides of anything, you have a higher chance of getting successful and get motivated always.
D for Don’t Give Up & Don’t Give In:
Consider every successful person from Sylvester Stallone, Thomas Edison, and Walt Disney. They had face failures and rejections a 1000 times. But there is no question about they will give up. Never! So never quit, never give up in life.
E Stands for Enjoying Your Work:
Enjoy what you do, have a passion for it. Work as if you don’t need the reward from it. Love the work you do. Dance as if nobody is watching you. Laugh as if you have never cried in your life. Always learn as if you are going to live forever (means it never ends). When people are really happy, there will always be motivation and more willingness to do anything in life.
F Stands for Friends and Family:
Learn to make your family and close ones become an instrument for your success. Every day you should be motivated just by looking at the faces of those you love the most. This is one of the strongest forces of motivation you will have in your life. Make them the reason for your success in life. And with those words of encouragement from them, you will gain so much strength (you won’t believe it).
G Stands for Giving Extra:
Self-improvement should happen to you all the time. Whenever you face anything at your home, your workplace always looks for that extra area of improvement. In fact, the difference of effort between excellent and outstanding is very little, but the difference in rewards is great. So, giving a little extra can put you to outstanding results in life.
H Stands for - Hang on to Your Dreams:
There may be times when it looks hopeless but learns to hang on to your dreams. It is said that the night is darkest just before dawn. 95% of people quit when they face these moments in life. What they don’t realize is that they may be very close to success. Learn to push through these moments and have courage, you will succeed.
I for Ignoring Those Who Tries To Destroy You:
Always walk away from such people and never involve in their dramas and toxicity. Remember, always surround yourself with people who will support you and lift you up. Throw those negative people in the trash can and forget about them. It will be much easier to get motivated in that way.
Joy Stands for Joy & Gratitude in Life:
Always learn to be joyful in what you do and be grateful for what you have. Without these two things, you will never have the right attitude for success. These are two of the most important fundamental requirement for success.
K Stands for - Keep Pushing Forward:
Learn to always keep pushing forward in life, no matter how hard it is. When things get hard and tougher, you have 2 choices. Either you keep pushing or you quit. One thing brings you closer to your success and the other one farther from it. It’s always up to you to choose any of these.
L Stands for Learning to Love ‘You’:
People might consider it in the wrong sense, but by loving yourself you will find more confidence and become happier. In the end, after you achieve the success you will learn to believe, you deserve what you achieve in life.
M Stands for, Making Things Happen:
Motivation for success in life doesn’t come from drinking coffee and watching television. Learn to take action to achieve your dreams and goals in life. Real action with step-by-step planning is required.
N for Never to Lie, Cheat or Steal From Others:
Learn to always play a fair game with honesty. At the end of the day, if you live a dishonest life and steal from others, it will always come back to you. Always live a fair and honest life. If you always do good for others, your life will be overflowed with love, joy, and peace.
O for Always Open Your Eyes Wide:
Most people always have a set of blinkers and they love to see everything through them. It is how they would like all things to be. Learn to look at life with your eyes open wide. And see things as they are and then learn to see them how you want them to be. After that, take the necessary action to make it happen.
P Stands for Practice:
When you do practice with discipline, it will make you perfect. Learn to practice with the best strategy and it will even make you the best person you can be in your field. A top sportsman in any field doesn’t become what he is, just by single practice. It’s a long way to go with much disciple and sacrifice.
Q Stands for Quitters Never Win:
This is a fact and will always be. If you quit, you are a loser, the moment you make that decision. Successful people know the power in this world (winners never quit and a quitter never will win in life). So stand your ground, my friend.
R Stands for Getting Ready:
Learn to get yourself ready for anything you will face while you travel the journey to success. Always be ready to grab the advantage of any opportunities and situations presented in front of you. Always prepare yourself, as a soldier does before going to war. Never procrastinate and do whatever you can do right now, at this very moment. Always remember Noah was building a huge arc when it was not raining.
S Stands to Stop Procrastinating Like a Loser:
You can always decide to do things tomorrow, but the fact is one day there will be no tomorrow. All you have is right now and today (this is for real action takers). Time gone will never be back again ever. So stop that procrastination and become real action takers. Keep moving my friend.
T Stands For Taking Control of Your Life:
Self-control and discipline are synonymous with your motivation. Many people start to believe that their lives are out of control when things don’t turn their way. Learn to look at your life, the way it is and consider every challenge as an opportunity to become better. In this way, you can see many areas in life, where you can take control and move further.
U Stands for Understanding Others:
Many people know how well they can talk, however, don’t realize how well they can listen to the other person and their needs. Always improve on how to listen to others. Human beings have two ears, but just one mouth which is for a reason. Listen more to other people’s needs and build that motivation to help others also.
V Stands for Visualisation:
The human brain which is the subconscious part knows no difference between reality and imagination. So if you rehearse and visualize your success in your mind, your subconscious will believe it and make it happen.
W Stands for Wants:
Want it (your success and your goal) more than anything in your life. When you have that burning desire from within that is the best motivation for success in life. The airplane was not invented because there was nothing on the television. This was invented because the Wright brothers had a burning desire for it. They kept going even with so many setbacks and failures.
X Stands for the X-Factor:
I mean this is something unique to make you different from others. When you have the real motivation for success in life you will always put extra effort or love for others in your life. Like extra time for your family and loved ones, also maybe extra help and generosity at the workplace. This x-factor sets you aside from many others because you have a genuine concern for others.
Y Means, You are really UNIQUE:
Did you know that the 7 billion people on the entire planet have different fingerprints? This shows that God has made you very unique in this world. No one in this world is like you, everyone is different. Value and use your unique gifts for success, whatever they are.
Z for Zero In:
The last one stands for Zero in on your dreams and makes it happen in your life.
Your Life on this earth didn't happen by accident but for a Purpose. A True Motivation in Life comes from learning the true purpose of your existence and the Real 'Why' with a strong reason to succeed. It is truly said that whatever the Mind of a Man can conceive & believe you can achieve it. So, believe in Yourself & Just Do it.
