(7) Your Body Posture Can Be Key To Success!

Motivation & Physiology

Paul J Meyer said, “Have the dogged determination to follow through to achieve your goal regardless of circumstance or whatever other people might say, think, or do.”

Andrew Carnegie said, “Think of yourself as on the threshold of unparalleled success, a whole, clear, glorious life lies before you. Achieve, achieve!”

Napoleon Hill said, “Desire is the starting point of all achievement. Not a hope, not a wish, but a keen, pulsating desire which transcends everything.”

Arnold Glasgow said, “Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire!”

Another way that we can gain motivation, power to move, excitement and passion is to use our physiology. Use your body as another way to enhance energy and trigger motivation.

Think of a time when a friend was telling you about something they did that was really exciting. Did they slump over, face slack, mumbling about it? No, they were excited, their voice tones were up. Their facial expression was up, their physiology was more erect, they were gesturing more. They were more powerful, much more animated.

(6) Put Your Focus On What You Want

Break Procrastination

You have to focus on what you want, not be focusing on what you don’t want. So you want to focus on getting it done, not on getting bogged down in it. If the project you’re going to do is large you may feel overwhelmed, you may procrastinate, you may hesitate, that’s normal.

Procrastination occurs mostly because the task we have seen or are thinking about doing is not broken into manageable chunks. If each piece to be done is large then run strategy on the first piece – not the whole thing, just run it on the first piece. Can I do the first piece? In other words, for writing a book, you may see the whole book done but then run a Motivation Strategy on getting the first page of the first chapter done, for instance, a chunk of a chunk. When you break it into pieces, you say “Yes, I can do that!” and the feeling of being overwhelmed vanishes.

The Opposite of Motivation

A saleswoman I coached could not get herself going to fill out the paperwork, her expense reports, and other reports she had to turn in until it became crisis-time. She was required to submit detailed summaries of her clothing lines–inventory on hand, products sold, and expenses at the end of every quarter. This inventory summary had to be completed within 30 days after the end of the quarter or she received a penalty from her company for not getting it in on time. She had to have all three of these things done.

Stimulating motivation is not an all day process. You don’t have to talk yourself into it. It works quickly when you have this playful, passionate attitude. This strategy is for generating a peak experience.

Motivation is a peak experience. It doesn’t go up, hit a peak, and stay there forever. It goes up, you hit a peak, and while it’s at its peak, you start. You don’t wait for it to start coming down, it hits the peak and you start. You begin your task immediately after building the motivation and momentum to get going.

Times To Use The Motivation Strategy

Here are a few times this can be used very effectively to get you going.

One is to get going when you want/need to get start on a task or project.

The second is, if you are getting ready for something the next day. You can do this the evening before to set yourself up, for kick-starting the next morning and then when morning arrives you do it again and start.

Or third, if you have a large task and you find yourself getting bogged down, feeling like quitting. You pause, you run through this, “Won’t it be great to have this done? Yes! It will be!” You then see it done, see the secondary gains. You then in your mind think/vow “I’m going to do it now! It’s going to happen now!” And you feel that positive feeling inside—AND YOU START! Just like that.

Today is a new day. You have the opportunity to move many steps forward on those goals you have in your life.

The Science of You:
Boosting Your Personal Effectiveness for Repeated Successes (Part 11 of 11)

(…continued from last week)

The people that we called gifted or that we call talented are not really all that much different than the majority of us. They’ve accepted their gifts—quite often they work hard at them—they let it happen, but they don’t work so hard like the little bird trying to bash its head against the window. They work hard by working smart. They get people to assist them and coach them. They use untapped resources and begin to tap them and use that potential that’s in them.

It’s time for you to do the same thing with some of your gifts. Claim them. Create them. Reach for them. Make things happen. If you look at your skills that you’ve developed over the years, there are talents within inside of those that you have never touched yet. You can find those gifts that are there and enjoy them.
