Just yesterday at work, a colleague from the upper management said to me: “We should constantly motivate our employees, but who motivates eigendlich me?” What I meant, “Well, you yourself! In principle, only we ourselves can motivate us, and not someone else … “He only said:” But that is exhausting … ”
How is it with you? Do you sometimes find it hard to get your bearings and motivate yourself? Yes? Then I have here 5 things you should know about the motivation of yourself:
Motivation is not a product of external influences
Such influences are, for example, speeches, manipulation, material things, etc. Motivation is much more a natural product of your inner attitude (belief, conviction)!
Set your goals right
Positive, joy-oriented goals, are much more motivators than negative, anxious goals. The right combination of the two is the most energetic mix.
Begin to visualize your success and feel the emotions you experience when you reach that success.
Motivate you mentally
Concentrate on the things that literally “tear down trees”.
Do not allow anyone to lead you into your motivation process
When it comes to self-motivation, it depends solely on what you think!
P.Sc. My favorite quotation on the subject of self-motivation comes from Anorld Schwarzenegger. He once said in an interview:
“IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, THEN HOW WILL ANYONE ELSE BELIEVE IN YOU?”
