Pain may sometimes be the reason why
people change. Getting flunked grades make us realize that we need to
study. Debts remind us of our inability to look for a source of income.
Being humiliated gives us the ‘push’ to speak up and fight for
ourselves to save our face from the next embarrassments. It may be a
bitter experience, a friend’s tragic story, a great movie, or an
inspiring book that will help us get up and get just the right amount
of motivation we need in order to improve ourselves.
With the countless negativities the world brings about, how do we keep
motivated? Try on the tips I prepared from A to Z…
A - Achieve your dreams. Avoid negative people, things and places.
Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “the future belongs to those who believe
in the beauty of their dreams.”
B - Believe in your self, and in what you can do.
C – Consider things on every angle and aspect. Motivation comes from
determination. To be able to understand life, you should feel the sun
from both sides.
D – Don’t give up and don’t give in. Thomas Edison failed once, twice,
more than thrice before he came up with his invention and perfected the
incandescent light bulb. Make motivation as your steering wheel.
E – Enjoy. Work as if you don’t need money. Dance as if nobody’s
watching. Love as if you never cried. Learn as if you’ll live forever.
Motivation takes place when people are happy.
F – Family and Friends – are life’s greatest ‘F’ treasures. Don’t loose
sight of them.
G – Give more than what is enough. Where does motivation and self
improvement take place at work? At home? At school? When you exert
extra effort in doing things.
H – Hang on to your dreams. They may dangle in there for a moment, but
these little stars will be your driving force.
I – Ignore those who try to destroy you. Don’t let other people to get
the best of you. Stay out of toxic people – the kind of friends who
hates to hear about your success.
J – Just be yourself. The key to success is to be yourself. And the key
to failure is to try to please everyone.
K – keep trying no matter how hard life may seem. When a person is
motivated, eventually he sees a harsh life finally clearing out, paving
the way to self improvement.
L – Learn to love your self. Now isn’t that easy?
M – Make things happen. Motivation is when your dreams are put into
N – Never lie, cheat or steal. Always play a fair game.
O – Open your eyes. People should learn the horse attitude and horse
sense. They see things in 2 ways – how they want things to be, and how
they should be.
P – Practice makes perfect. Practice is about motivation. It lets us
learn repertoire and ways on how can we recover from our mistakes.
Q – Quitters never win. And winners never quit. So, choose your fate –
are you going to be a quitter? Or a winner?
R – Ready yourself. Motivation is also about preparation. We must hear
the little voice within us telling us to get started before others will
get on their feet and try to push us around. Remember, it wasn’t
raining when Noah build the ark.
S – Stop procrastinating.
T – Take control of your life. Discipline or self control jives
synonymously with motivation. Both are key factors in self improvement.
U – Understand others. If you know very well how to talk, you should
also learn how to listen. Yearn to understand first, and to be
understood the second.
V – Visualize it. Motivation without vision is like a boat on a dry
W – Want it more than anything. Dreaming means believing. And to
believe is something that is rooted out from the roots of motivation
and self improvement.
X – X Factor is what will make you different from the others. When you
are motivated, you tend to put on “extras” on your life like extra time
for family, extra help at work, extra care for friends, and so on.
Y – You are unique. No one in this world looks, acts, or talks like
you. Value your life and existence, because you’re just going to spend
Z – Zero in on your dreams and go for it!!!
