How do motivational thoughts help you? They help to give you a boost to take action. Please don’t think this is all about positive thinking and motivational quotes, it isn’t. It’s a point to consider that your thinking and attitude can be shaped by them. Each of us is motivated by something unique to us, so you need to be able to think for yourself and live up to your own uniqueness.
“In the midst of difficulty lies opportunity.” – Oprah Winfrey
This quote is pretty good to keep you positive, but it may not excite you a lot. If that is the case you may have to apply a little imagination to your own way of thinking. This motivational thought must be made just for YOU.
Working With Your Own Motivational Thoughts
Experimenting with a good thought until you find a way to use it in your own method of motivation is what is called “making it your own”. You may for instance find yourself in a situation that really bothers you, but you don’t feel like dealing with it. As you go through this in your mind, you could get the idea of opportunity arising from that difficulty. When you do this, you find yourself feeling better and thinking about the future instead and can use this to explain to others how you got out of the slump you were in, turning the difficulty to an advantage.
You can create your very own motivational thoughts in this way. You could provide even more motivation by imagining being interviewed in the future about your handling of the situation and how you dealt with it. It will serve you well to think the thoughts that work for you.
Find Out More About Your Motivations
Experimenting more is the way to find out how your mind works. Personally, I get excited by explaining a thought to someone rather than just thinking and keeping it to myself. This my own particular self-motivation system. When I feel unmotivated, I will talk to a friend or my partner about an idea I have for a product or some content. After this simple exercise I have the motivation needed to get it done.
Get creative when you are going through your motivational experiments. The very thought of being poor may be the motivation you need to get going. If this works for you, then it’s a good motivational thought to have. If you find that visual thoughts work better for you than mental conversations, use those to your advantage instead. Try to see things in your mind’s eye that excite you. If somebody tries to limit you by telling you that you can’t do it, prove them wrong by doing whatever it takes. “You can’t do it” may be just the motivation you need to succeed.
Completing a boring task can be difficult, so think about rewarding yourself with something you really love to do after completing it. The thought of doing something good is the motivation to complete the task. A glass of cold beer or going to the cinema to see the latest movie could be some of you most powerful motivational thoughts.
