Tuesday Motivational Dose for you

Finding it hard to motivate yourself on a Tuesday. Just try this positive dose of energy.

By focusing your mind on a positive goal instead of an ambiguous fear, you put your brain to work. It instantly begins devising a plan for success. Instead of worrying about the future you start to do something about it. This is the first step in motivating yourself to take action. When know what you want, you become motivated to take action
John Wesley

Creative visualization helps you use your natural creative imagination in a more conscious way to create a clear image, idea or feeling sense of what you really want and to achieve your goal by focusing constantly on it and giving it your positive energy until it becomes objective reality...
Vadim Kotelnikov

You cannot always rely on others to encourage you, if you have positive friends who are always there when you need them then you are indeed lucky and very much in the minority. If you are lonely or have few friends when you face any difficulties in your life you must rely on your own motivation to get you through. Lack of self motivation at that time could lead to depression.

You need self motivation to achieve because if you don't encourage yourself to accept opportunity and challenge who will?
Karl Perera

Set yourself boundaries If you find that the work you are doing is taking too long to complete then you are either not doing it right or you are in fact doing too much. So look at how you can cut back on the amount of time you spend on each project or piece of work and ways in which it can be simplified or any training that you may need.

Persevere and be patient. Even the most self motivated people sometimes lose their enthusiasm and fall behind. Be patient with yourself when you have a setback. Take a break and then return to the task.

Provide a way for relief: if your employees work for 8 hours, and if you know that it only takes 6 hours to finish their work, what’s the point in disabling chatting programs, web browsing or any other method that provides a relief? By enabling such things (without announcing that they are enabled) the employee will be happy and he may think that he fooling you by using them and on the other side you will be knowing but acting as if you are not noticing it, these stuff provide a relief from hard work and so may prevent loss of motivation due to stress or frustration.

It also helps to observe yourself and your activities daily and regularly. What are some of the things that you enjoy doing everyday? What are some of the things you want to do again and again because you like it? For example, you may like talking to a particular friend. If so, whenever you need some motivation, try to talk to that friend about it. This will boost your motivation levels. Identify such activities through observation and keep them in mind whenever you need to motivate yourself.

Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.
Mark Victor Hansen

You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.
Anthony Robbins

I can accept failure -- everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying.
Michael Jordan

In motivating people, you've got to engage their minds and their hearts. It is good business to have an employee feel part of the entire effort . . . ; I motivate people, I hope, by example—and perhaps by excitement, by having provocative ideas to make others feel involved.
Rupert Murdoch

People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.
