One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular.Having no idea of the giant capacity we can immediately command when we focus all of our resources on mastering a single area of our lives.
But our biggest mistake daily is throughout our daily struggles is that we never listen.A great observation that I’ve notice is that the words silent and listen have the same letters and to require wisdom and knowledge we must do both .
The colossal misunderstanding of our time is the assumption that insight will work with people who are unmotivated to change.
All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die In one life before we can enter another.
Action and reaction, ebb and flow, trial and error, change – this is the rhythm of living. Out of our over-confidence, fear; out of our fear, clearer vision, fresh hope. And out of hope, progress.
However in change or the strive to become better at what you do, there is always that unwanted challenge standing in the mist.
Staying motivated is a struggle our drive is constantly assaulted by negative thoughts and anxiety about the future. Everyone faces doubt and depression. What separates the highly successful is the ability to keep moving forward.
There is no simple solution for a lack of motivation. Even after beating it, the problem reappears at the first sign of failure. The key is understanding your thoughts and how they drive your emotions. By learning how to nurture motivating thoughts, neutralize negative ones, and focus on the task at hand, you can pull yourself out of a slump before it gains momentum.
Two great mentors of mine made me realize some important facts that I will implement in my life and I think you should as well .
“Although times get hard and you don’t feel like you are seeing results.Everything takes time , just be patient ” ~Patrice Marshall
“Be driven by the challenges. If we had to fight for air everyday we’d appreciate it’s existence way more than we do now.”~Andre Parris
We can always choose to perceive things differently. You can focus on what’s wrong in your life, or you can focus on what’s right.What we need to remember is that ,every journey is a challenge and focus on what we learnt to change each challenge into an opportunity.It’s inevitable that you’ll encounter periods of low energy, bad luck, and even the occasional failure. Don’t dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer.If you don’t discipline your mind, these minor speed bumps can turn into mental monsters. By being on guard against these motivation killers you can preserve your motivation and propel yourself to success.
