Chapter 2 : What Does It Mean To Be Motivated


Self motivation is probable the single most important element in keeping an individual interested and committed to finishing a set task.

The doubt factor that is always present in every scenario requires some level of motivation in order to ensure the doubt is kept in check or at bay. In life it is not always possible to only do things or be exposed to things that only bring pleasure.

There will be times when some discipline is required to get through a task even if it is uncomfortable and displeasure able, and here is where one needs to be self motivated.

The Basics

Some of the things that may help an individual to stay motivated are as follows:

  • Keeping the end goal in clear focus. When the end goal is clearly imprinted in the mind’s eye, then the body and mind will be able to subconsciously condition themselves to suit the needs of the individual to successfully complete the task set.
  • Continuously reminding one’s self of the capabilities and the conviction that it is possible to finish the task. This continual reminder will then translate into a zest and even the chemical reaction within the body and mind that produces the extra energy to keep going.
  • Stepping back and viewing the task in its present percentage of accomplishment will also help to create a further motivational level to complete it. This is more so when the physical accomplishment to that point is on the positive side.
  • Facilitating little rewards to be enjoyed as each level in the task is achieved can also be a good motivational tool.
