What determines successful people apart from the pack? Is it luck, fund, good lucks, and/ or aptitude?
No, it is one small-scale simple reality — motivation.
People who are successful all share one peculiarity — “theyre about” motivated.
Of course, motivation really isn’t simple at all. That is why there is currently multi-billion industry focused on self-help volumes, tapes, meetings, camps, and coaches.
Your positive action combined with positive thinking results in success
There is just one difficulty with using these methods. When it comes to motivation one sizing does not fit all. One of the elements that makes human beings so endlessly fascinating is that we are all individuals.It is the primary reason our species has been so successful. It likewise means we each have different interests, aims, and motivation.
So before you can begin following any one of millions of motivational programs available you are required to define which motivational group you fall into.
After some believe, analyze, and research, I have come up with four basic motivational categories:
~ The Pessimist ~ The Competitor ~ The Minimalist ~ The Exhibitionist
The Pessimist is represented by my husband. Whenever he gets the smallest chip of bad news he instantly leaps into the deep purpose of doom and gloom. It doesn’t matter if the problem is small-time or large, he often reacts as if it is the end of countries around the world. If the satellite dish has a momentary glitch in service then he instantly expects the bill didn’t get paid and our report aborted and our credit rating is now on the decline.
It took me a long time to learn how to deal with this. At first I thought it was real panic and I would try to shield him from the small glitches, and even some large-scale ones, of life. But now I know this is actually how he motivated himself.
When we face challenges, large or small, he works himself through a familiar round. First he sketches the worst-case scenario, then he sketches his possible options for action, and then he takes action. And when he takes action merely get out of the way as he moves very quickly — and successfully. Challenge faced, difficulty solved. It makes me crazy but it works for him!
My brother thrives on competition. Whether he is playing sports or to operate in sales, he is always more successful if he has competition.If his motivation flags he can easily juice himself up with a quick comparison of his progress toward a specific purpose in comparison to others. He likes to keep score and that prevents him motivated. He wants to win whatever competition is at hand.
Don’t knock this method. By almost any measure my brother is a huge success and has worked his behavior from a contract employee scarcely be permitted to afford his two-bedroom apartment to a high-level sales executive with a six-figure salary plus bonuses to further incentivize him.
Perhaps this person might best be described as having a short-attention span. They requirement short-term aims that are immediately visible and can be achieved within a short time span. They can go the distance as long as it is broken up into smaller programmes. Each small-scale win will stimulation them on to the final goal but they need those little achievers to keep them motivated. In many modes this label were applied to me but I envision down deep that I is certainly in the final category.
I know I fall into this category because I have a difficult time with aims that I cannot experience. It is one of the reasons why I detest cleaning — sure you can see the results but with a busy household you know how long research results stay visible!
Like the minimalist I enjoy smashing large programmes up into small-scale, bite-sized chunks so they are not so overwhelming. When I grade papers for my teaching gig I ever subdivide the pile into several smaller pilings so I can feel I am making progress. I do the same with cleansing — first straighten the room, then dust, then vacuum.
But it isn’t enough for me to accomplish the duty — I need to have a to do list that I can check off as I go and then crumple up and throwin the trash at the end of the working day. I need to be able to point to some visible success for the working day whether it is a shining kitchen, a stack of ranked papers, or a pile of accomplished manuscript pages.
