Do you feel afraid of taking chances and doing what truly makes you happy, so you often conform to other people’s opinions just to fit in?

If the answer to any of the above questions is a “Yes”.

Don’t be sad. Be happy instead. Happiness is what everyone should achieve in life while avoiding stressful situations, uncomfortable emotions, and challenging obstacles. Despite what people who actually study the human mind and behavior say, these are not things that strengthen your mindset, develop quality habits, shape your personality, and make you a stronger individual. Some call these people scientists, some call them experts. But what is really true is a matter of discussion.

Always be happy, because having any other emotion is just unnatural. Criticism is something very, very bad. It’s not something you can learn from to improve yourself. It’s not significant if 90% of people hate what you’re doing. It’s not important if you could do things differently and achieve a better effect. Why?

Because you’re awesome. Everybody is awesome. If you’re alive, you’re awesome. You don’t become an awesome person by doing good deeds, advancing your skills and knowledge, putting in hard work, and developing yourself into a smart, capable, and interesting individual.

If people hate talking to you and avoid social contact, don’t think something might be wrong with you. Maybe you talk too much? Maybe you’re too judgmental? Maybe you don’t have anything important to say? Forget these things. Remember, you’re awesome just for being you. You don’t have any bad traits. There are no flaws in your behavior. There is no room for improvement.

You’re perfect just the way, you are.

Find an idea. Go ahead and convert this idea into a project? Think of writing a book, Starting a business, YouTube channel, Blog. Go for it. I’m sure it’s a unique, never-been-done-before idea. thave rust on your Idea. Your every idea is amazing because, as we’ve learned, you’re awesome and criticism is bad. If you could actually learn something from criticism, it would mean that it is not necessarily bad. And that’s just crazy.

Market survey says that 9/10 startups fail and that almost half of them fail because there was no market need for their product or service. In other words, nobody was interested in their idea in the first place. But those brave souls refused to listen to the haters and kept going. The final outcome is not relevant.

Let’s pull up some survey of our own. Spoiler alert – they are going to blow your mind:

  • Walt Disney was fired because his boss felt he “lacked imagination and had no good ideas”
  • Oprah Winfrey was publicly fired from her first television job for getting “too emotionally invested in her stories”
  • Steven Spielberg was rejected by the School of Cinematic Arts multiple times
  • Thomas Edison’s teachers told him he was “too stupid to learn anything”
  • Jay-Z couldn’t get any record label to sign him

All these people later went on to become extremely successful and well-known in their respective fields. They didn’t listen to what others told them and they didn’t let the haters discourage them. They kept pushing until they achieved their dreams.

This, of course, doesn’t mean that they failed many, many, many times before succeeding. It doesn’t mean that they had hundreds of shit ideas before finding one that was actually good. It also doesn’t mean they are exceptionable people who spent endless hours, months, and years perfecting their craft, thinking of new ideas, learning, and evolving from criticism and making sacrifices for a better future.

The only thing that we can learn from these fun facts is that they were just normal, ordinary people – like you. If they could do it, why couldn’t you? If you want it hard enough, you’ll definitely be successful one day (regardless of how much work you actually put in).

Why? Because you’re awesome.

 

As we have seen, how important It is to be happy, let’s dwell on the five way’s to be Self Motivated.

 

  1. Find your master key to success- 
  2. Put your library on wheels.
  3. Plan your work.
  4. Bounce your thoughts.
  5. Break Down Your Work into small pieces and light your lazy dynamite.

 

Find Your Master Key To success

I used to have the feeling that everyone else in life had at one time or another been issued instruction books on how to make life work. And I, for some reason, wasn’t there when they passed them out. I felt a little like the Spanish poet Cesar Vallejo, who wrote, “Well, on the day I was born, God was sick.” Still struggling in my late-30s with a pessimistic outlook and no sense of purpose, I voiced my frustration once to a friend of mine, who recommended a book to me. Until that time, I didn’t really believe that there could be a book that could tell you how to make your life work.

The name of the book was “Good to Great” by “Jim C. Collins”. It sat on my shelf for quite a while. I didn’t believe in motivational books or self-help. They were weak and fools. I was finally persuaded to read the book by the word Great in the title. Greatness would be a welcome addition to my life. Being Great at what I do is probably what I needed to be happy and wipe out my troubles. What the book actually did was a lot more than increase my earning capacity (although by practicing the principles in the book, my earnings doubled in less than a year). Jim C. Collin’s advice ultimately sparked a fire in me that changed my entire life. I soon acquired an ability that I would later realize was self-motivation.  After reading that book, I read the books of Napoleon Hill’s. I also began buying motivational audiobooks for listening to in my transit time and for playing by my bed as I went to sleep each night. Everything I had learned in school, in college, and from my family and friends was out the window. Without fully understanding it, I was engaged in the process of completely rebuilding my own thinking. I was, thought by thought, replacing the old cynical and passive orientation to life with a new optimistic, and energetic outlook.

So, what is this master key to success?

“The great master key to success,” as said by Napoleon Hill, “is nothing more or less than the self-discipline necessary to help you take full and complete possession of your own mind. Remember, it is profoundly significant that the only thing over which you have complete control is your own mental attitude.”

Taking complete possession of my own mind would be a lifelong adventure, but it was one that I was excited about beginning.

Maybe The book Good to Great will not be your own master key, but I promise you that you’ll find an instruction book on how to make your life work if you keep looking and how to transform yourself from the level of being good to being great. It might be The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle, The Last Word in Power by Tracy Goss, Frankenstein’s Castle by Colin Wilson, or The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem by Nathaniel Branden. All those books would have worked the primary transformation for me, and they have all taken me higher up the motivational ladder. Your own key might even come from the spiritual literature of your choice. You’ll find it when you’re ready to seek. It’s out there waiting for you.

 

Put your library on wheels-

One of the greatest opportunities for motivating yourself today lies in the way you use your transit time. It may be when you are on the way to your office or back, maybe when you are waiting for someone, or any other time when you are actually not working.

There is no longer any excuse for the time in the car to be downtime or frustrating or time that isn’t motivating. With the huge variety of audiotapes and CDs now available, you can use your time on the road to educate and motivate yourself at the same time. When we use our time in the car to simply listen to hip-hop or to curse traffic, we are undermining our own frame of mind. Moreover, by listening to tabloid-type “news” programs for too long a period of time, we actually get a distorted view of life. News programs today have one goal: to shock or sadden the listener. The most vulgar and horrific stories around the state and nation are searched for and found.
I experienced this first hand when I stayed with one of my friends who worked for a daily newspaper. I saw him getting frustrated if there were no murders or rapes that day. I watched him tore through the wire stories to see if a news item from another state could be good enough to save the front page. If there’s no drowning, they’ll reluctantly go with a near-drowning. There is nothing wrong with this. It’s not immoral or unethical. It feeds the public’s hunger for the bad news. It’s exactly what people want, so, in a way, it is a service. But it reaches its most damaging proportions when the average listener to a car radio believes that all this bad news is a true and fair reflection of what’s happening in the world. It’s not. It is deliberately selected to spice up the broadcast and keep people listening. It is designed to create fear because horrified people are a riveted audience and advertisers like it that way.

If we would be more selective with how we program our minds while we are driving, we could have some exciting breakthroughs in two important areas: knowledge and motivation. There are now hundreds of audio book series on self-motivation, on how to use the Internet, on health, on goal setting, and on all the useful subjects that we need to think about if we’re going to grow.

As Emerson once said, “We become what we think about all day long.” (I first heard that sentence, a few days ago, while driving in my car listening to an Earl Nightingale audio program suggested by my Mentor (Mr.Siddharth Rajsekhar). If we leave what we think about a chance, or to a radio station, then we lose a large measure of control over our own minds. Many people today drive a great deal of time. With motivational and educational audio books, it has been estimated that drivers can receive the equivalent of a full semester in college with three months’ worth of driving. Most libraries have large sections devoted to audiobooks, and all the best and all the current audiobooks are now available on Internet bookseller sites.

Are all motivational programs effective? No. Some might not move you at all. That’s why it’s good to read customer reviews before buying an audio program over the Internet. But there have been so many times when great motivational audio played in my car has had a positive impact on my frame of mind and my ability to live and work with enthusiasm. One moment stands out in my memory above all others, although there have been hundreds. I was driving in my car one day listening to Wayne Dyer’s classic audio series, Choosing Your Own Greatness. At the end of a long, moving argument for not making our happiness dependent on some material object hanging out there in our future, Dyer said, “There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.”

That one thought eased itself into my mind at that moment and never left it. It is not an “original” thought, but Dyer’s gentle presentation, so filled with serene joy and so effortlessly spoken, changed me in a way that no ancient volume of wisdom ever could have. That’s one of the powers of the audiobook form of learning: It simulates an extremely intimate one-on-one experience. Wayne Dyer, Marianne Williamson, Caroline Myss, Barbara Sher, Tom Peters, Nathaniel Branden, Earl Nightingale, Alan Watts, and Anthony Robbins are just a few motivators whose tapes have changed my life. You’ll find your own favorites. You don’t have to find time to go read at the library. Forget the library. You are already driving one.

 

Plan Your Work-

There is no perfect time to start something. If you plan and you are ready to execute, all time is a perfect time.

Some of us may think we’re too depressed right now to start on a new course of personal motivation. Or we’re too angry. Or we’re too upset about certain problems. But Napoleon Hill insisted that that’s the perfect time to learn one of life’s most unusual rules: “There is one unbeatable rule for the mastery
of sorrows and disappointments, and that is the transmutation of those emotional frustrations through definitely planned work. It is a rule which has no equal.”

Once we get the picture of who we want to be, “definitely planned work” is the next step on the path. Definitely planned work inspires the energy of purpose. Without it, we suffer from a weird kind of intention deficit disorder. We’re short on intention. We don’t know where we’re going or what we’re up to.

Thus, planning your work very important. It is also said that “One hour of planning saves three hours of execution”.

However, most of us don’t feel we have time for that hour of planning. We’re too busy cleaning up yesterday’s problems (that were caused by a lack of planning). We don’t yet see that planning would be the most productive hour we spend. Instead, we wander unconsciously into the workplace and react to crises. (Again, most of which result from a failure to plan.) A carefully planned meeting can take a third of the time that an unplanned free-for-all takes. A carefully planned day can take a third of the time that an unplanned free-for-all day takes.

I know a person who manages a large sales staff at a major radio station. His success in life was moderate until he discovered the principle of definitely planned work. Now he spends two hours each
Weekend on his computer planning the week ahead. “It’s made all the difference in the world,” he said. “Not only do I get three times the work done, but I feel so in control. The week feels like my week. The work feels like my work. My life feels like my life.” It is impossible to work with a definite sense of purpose and be depressed at the same time. Carefully planned work will motivate you to do more and worry less.

 

Bounce Your Thoughts.

Thoughts can be bounced and habits can be formed.

Think of basketball players, who have just started to learn playing basketball, you know that most of them have a tendency to dribble with only one hand—the one attached to their dominant arm.
When you as a coach notice some player doing this, you might call him aside and say,
“Hey, you’re dribbling with just the one hand every time, and the defender can easily defend you when you do that. Your options are cut off. You need to dribble with your other hand, too, so that he never knows which way you’re going to go.” At this point, the player might say, “I can’t.” And you smile and say, “What do you mean you can’t?”And the player then shows you that when he dribbles with his subdominant (weaker) hand and arm, the ball is all over the place. So, to his mind, he can’t.

“Hey,” you say. “It’s not that you can’t, it’s just that you haven’t.” Then you explain to the player that his other hand can dribble just as well if he is willing to practice. It’s just a matter of logging enough bounces. It’s the simple formation of a habit. After enough practice dribbling with his other hand, the player will learn you were right.

The same principle is true for reprogramming our own dominant habits of thinking. If our dominant thought habit is pessimistic, all we have to do is dribble with the other hand: Think optimistic thoughts more and more often until it feels natural. If someone had asked me (before I started my journey
Of self-motivation that began with Jim C. Collin) why I didn’t try to be more goal-oriented and optimistic, I would have said, “I can’t. It’s just not me. I wouldn’t know how.” But it would have been more accurate
For me to just say, “I haven’t.” Thinking is just like bouncing the basketball. On the one hand, I can think pessimistically and build that side of me up (it’s just a matter of repeatedly bouncing those thoughts). On the other hand, I can think optimistically—one thought at a time—and build that habit up.
Self-motivation is all a matter of how much in control you want to be.

According to some research, we humans have up to 45,000 thoughts a day. I can’t vouch for the accuracy of that figure, especially because I know some people who seem to have no more than nine or 10. However, if it is true that we have 45,000 thoughts, then you can see how patient, we have to be about turning a pessimistic thought habit around.

The overall pattern won’t change after just a few positive bounces of the brain. If you’re a pessimist, your bio-computer has really been programmed heavily in that direction. But it doesn’t take long before a
New patterns can emerge. As a former pessimist myself, I can tell you it really happens, however slowly but surely. You do change. One thought at a time. If you can bounce it one way, you can bounce it the other

Break Down Your Work into small pieces and light your lazy dynamite.

According to Henry Ford, there is no such job that can not be handled if you are willing to break it down into little pieces. And when you’ve broken a job down, remember to allow yourself some slow motion in beginning the first piece. Just take it slow and easy. Because it isn’t important how fast you are doing it. What’s important is that you are doing it. Most of our hardest jobs never seem to get done. The mere thought of doing the whole job, at a high energy level, is frequently too off-putting to allow motivation to occur. But a good way to ease yourself into that motivation is to act as if you
Where the laziest person on the planet.  By accepting that you’re going to make your task in a slow and lazy way, there is no anxiety or dread about getting it started. In fact, you can even have fun by entering into it as if you were in a slow-motion comedy, flowing into the work like a person made of water.
But the paradox is that the slower you start something, the faster you will be finished. When you first think about doing something hard or overwhelming, you are more aware of how you don’t want to do it

In other words, the mental picture you have about the activity, of doing it fast and furious, is not a happy picture. So you think of ways to avoid doing the job altogether.

The thought of starting slowly is an easy thought. And doing it slowly allows you to actually start doing it. Therefore, it gets finished. Another thing that happens when you flow into a project slowly is that
Speed will often overtake you without you forcing it. Just as the natural rhythm inside you will get you in sync with what you are doing. You’ll be surprised how soon your conscious mind stops forcing the action and your subconscious mind supplies you with easy energy. So take your time. Start out lazy. Soon your tasks will be keeping the slow but persistent rhythm. .The dynamite is living inside you. You don’t have to be frenzied about setting it off. It lights just as well to a match struck slowly.

 

So, Stay happy, Stay Motivated, Plan your own destiny. Anything is possible for You,

Yes, You Can Do It.

I Can Motivate Myself. I am The Creator Of My Own Self. How ? Part 1

Self-Motivation Tips To Transform Your Life | Courses That Change

 

Motivation is something that we keep searching for every moment from any external sources like other personalities, movies, Success stories, and many other sources.

Have we ever thought that we can Motivate ourselves?

How to Motivate ourselves?

After reading this article you will be able to think about 100 ways to motivate yourself.

Yes, You heard it write  You can Motivate Yourself.

This article will be published in a daily series of 5 ways of self-motivation and cover 100 ways to self-Motivation.

Let’s dwell on it.

When we leave this world, we will ask ourselves one question: What’s
Different? What’s different because I was here? And the answer to that question will be the difference that we made.
All of our thoughts and feelings won’t matter anymore when we are in our deathbeds asking that question. What will matter is the action we took and the difference that it made.

Yet we continue to obsess about our thoughts and become fascinated with our feelings. We are offended by other people. We want to prove we are right. We make other people wrong. We are disappointed in some people and resent others. It goes on and on and none of it will matter on that deathbed.

Action will be all that matters.

We could have made a difference every hour, every day if we had wanted to.
So how do we do that? How do we motivate ourselves to get into action? How do we live a life of action and difference-making?

You Have No Personality
Do you think that you have a fixed personality, It is just a myth. It is self-limiting and it denies us our power of continuous creation.
In our ongoing creation of who we are, nothing has a greater impact on that process than the choice we make between optimism and pessimism. There are no optimistic or pessimistic personalities; there are only single, individual choices for optimistic or pessimistic thoughts.

Charlie Chaplin once entered a “Charlie Chaplin Look-alike Contest” in
Monte Carlo and the judges awarded him third place!
Personality is overrated. Who we are is up to us every moment.
The choices we make for our thinking either motivate us or they do not.
And although clear visualization of a goal is a good first step, a joyfully motivated life demands more. To live the life you want to live, the action is required. As Shakespeare said, “Action is eloquence.” And as a psychologist and author Dr. Nathaniel Branden has written, “A goal without an action plan is a daydream.” Motion creates the self. In my experience as a Professional, Coach, consultant, and writer, I have accumulated many ways of thinking that lead directly to motivation.  I am always looking for ways of thinking that energize the mind and get us going again.

5 Effective Ways for Self Motivation

1. Get on your deathbed-

Deathbed” exercise.

Let’s imagine yourselves  lying on your own deathbed and
fully realize the feelings connected with dying and saying good-bye.
Then mentally invite the people in your life who were
important to you to visit your bedside, one at a time. As you visualize each
friend and relative coming in to visit you, you have to speak to them out
loud. you have to say to them what you wanted them to know as you are dying.
As you speak to each person, you would feel your voice breaking. Somehow you can’t help breaking down. Your eyes are filled with tears. You are experiencing such a sense of loss.

You just realized that “It was not my own life I was mourning; it was the love I was losing”.

To be more exact, it was a communication of love that had never been there.
During this difficult exercise, you really can see how much you left out of
your life. How many wonderful feelings you had about others, that you never explicitly expressed.

At the end of the exercise, You will be an emotional mess. You may even feel crying. But when these emotions will clear, some wonderful things will happen. Now you will know what was really important, and who really mattered to you.

“Death can be more exciting than life.”

This exercise will lead you to vow, not to leave anything to chance. You can make up
your mind never to leave anything unsaid. You will want to live as if you may
die at any moment. The entire experience will alter the way you related to
people ever since.

Remember we don’t have to wait until we’re actually near death to receive these
benefits of being mortal. We can create the experience anytime we
want.

.
Many of us (including myself) keep pretending that our life’s game
will have no end. We keep planning to do great things someday when
we feel like it. We assign our goals and dreams to that imaginary island
in the sea that Denis Waitley calls “Someday Isle.” We find ourselves
saying, “Someday I’ll do this,” and “Someday I’ll do that.”
Confronting our own death doesn’t have to wait until we run out of life.
In fact, being able to vividly imagine our last hours on our deathbed
creates a paradoxical sensation: the feeling of being born all over
again—the first step to fearless self-motivation. “People living deeply,”
wrote poet and diarist Anaïs Nin, “have no fear of death.”
And as Bob Dylan has sung, “He who is not busy being born is busy
dying.”

2. Stay hungry.

If You are hungry, You will ask for the food, If you can’t get the food, you will try different ways, in some situations when there is no choice you may be compelled to beg for food. As you are hungry for food you will not be able to concentrate on anything else other than the food to satisfy your hunger. You will try different ways to reach your desired food, you will ask for help, you will be desperate about the food, and finally, your efforts will win and you will get your food. your efforts will not stop unless you satisfy your hunger.

 

Now imagine you are not hungry and you have a lot of free time, and you entered a restaurant, will you go and try to get the food? No, certainly not, you will keep your hands folded and wait for the waiter to come to you and ask for the order.

Means, we continue to do efforts when we are hungry for something.

Thus being hungry for something is one of the most important factors that keep you motivated.

Example For some personalities who proved that Staying hungry was the reason for their success and motivation.

“Disability is just a state of mind” It can do no harm to one’s abilities.

The above statement is proved true by the Indian Film and Television Actress Sudha Chandram.

Today this Indian actress and classical dancer need no introduction. Her hunger for Dance and acting made her what she is today.

Sudha Chandran was born in Mumbai on 27th September 1965 and her family ground from Kerala, her father K.D.Chandran worked at USIS and is a former actor. Sudha Chandran earned her B.A. from Mithibai College, Mumbai and later on, she did an M.A. in Economics.

She met with an accident when she was just 16.

Doctors missed a small wound in her ankle and plastered it, which later got infected and there was no alternative left but to cut her leg.

Sudha Chandran says that this period was the toughest time of her life.

She overcame her disability by getting a prosthetic “Jaipur Foot” and became one of the most popular and acclaimed classical dancers of the country. She returned to dancing after a gap of two years and performed in India, Saudi Arabia, USA, UK, Canada, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Yemen, and Oman. Her biography is part of the curriculum for school children in the age group of 8-11.

 

Yuvraj Walmiki Height, Weight, Age, Wife, Affairs & More » StarsUnfolded

 

Yuvraj Walmiki-The Hockey Man, who was rejected 13 times.

Yes, you heard it right, this man was rejected 13 times by the Indian journeyer Hockey Camp, anyone can start looking for other options in life if he/she is rejected more than 3 times.

It is just a normal statistics, but, he who has confidence in his abilities and strong burning desire in the heart, turns every rejection into a learning experience and keeps on adding to his experience.

Yuvraj Walmiki is one live example of such a determined player, whose commitment towards his game is far above any rejection or selection.

He was born on 29 November 1989. He is the only Indian player to have played German Hockey League for 8 years continuously. Also, he is the first hockey player to have participated in (Fear Factor) Khatron Ke Khiladi season 7. He is the brand ambassador of DGS (NGO).

Despite playing both at the club level and regional level, self-motivated Yuvraj was faced with, what he calls, the ‘most discouraging situation’ of his career to date.

He says,

“Even after being selected for the Junior World Cup team, I was not allowed to play at the last moment.”

With just two days to go, for the tournament, he was informed that he had been removed from the team, and the reason given was that he did not have much international experience.

Yuvraj recalls: “I told them that until and unless you give me international experience, how do I get it? That was the most hurting incident in my life since I started playing.”

For the next four months, he stopped playing. But he moved on. And as we look today, he just created history.

Let’s Look into his hockey journey-

He represented India in the year 2014 Rabobank Hockey World Cup in The Hague (Netherlands ).

He played Pre World cup in The Hague (the Netherlands)

He played the Netherlands test series in Amsterdam in the year 2013 and won Gold Medal

He was the part of Champions Trophy in the year 2012 in Australia (Melbourne). The team entered semi-finals after 30 years.

He won the bronze Medal at Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in the year 2012, in Malaysia

He woned Gold Medal in the Olympic Qualifies in the year 2012, Delhi

He owned Gold Medal at the South Africa test series in Delhi in the year 2012

he owned silver Medal in Tri-Series (India, Australia, and Pakistan) in Australia in the year 2011

He participated in Lanco super series in Australia in the year 2011

He owned Silver Medal in Champions challenge in South Africa in the year 2011

He owned Gold Medal at Asian Champions Trophy in China in the year 2011

He Owned Silver Medal by representing India in the South Asian Games in the year 2010 in Dhaka

He played for the Delhi Waveriders for the last 3 years. Won a Silver Medal in season 1, Gold Medal in Season 2, and Bronze in Season 3.

He became the first Indian Brand Ambassador for the Australian brand Ritual

He is the Brand Ambassador for Do Good Sports (NGO) in Mumbai

He is the only Indian player to play in German Hockey League for 4 years continuously

He is the highest Goalscorer in German League for 2 years – 2010 and 2011

He is the best Player in Mumbai Hockey League from the year 2004 to 2007.

All the above achievements would have not been a reality if Yuvraj Walmiki would have given up even after his 13th rejection. He was motivated even after this because of his hunger for hockey.

So, the message is clear that we must keep chasing our dreams, we must keep our hunger alive in search of that one day which will start our journey towards success.

A major part of living a life of self-motivation is having something to
wake up for in the morning—something that you are “up to” in life so
that you will stay hungry.
The vision can be created right now—better now than later. You can
always change it if you want, but don’t live a moment longer without
one. Watch what being hungry to live that vision does to your ability to
motivate yourself.

 

3. Tell yourself a true lie.

I remember when I saw a young girl who participated
in a school poetry reading in which all her classmates had to write a “lie
the poem” about how great they were.
They were supposed to make up untruths about themselves that made
them sound unbelievably wonderful. I realized as I listened to the poems
that the children were reciting an unintended version of what they intended to be in the future.

By “lying” to themselves they were creating a vision of who they wanted to be.
It’s noteworthy, too, that public schools are so out of touch with the
motivational sources of individual achievement and personal success
that in order to invite children to express big visions for themselves they
have to invite the children to “lie.”

Most of us are unable to see the truth of who we could be. The young girl’s school developed an unintended solution to that difficulty.

If it’s hard for you to imagine the potential in yourself, then you might
want to begin by expressing it as a fantasy, as did the children who
wrote the poems. Think up some stories about who you would like to
be. Your subconscious mind doesn’t know you’re fantasizing.

Soon you will begin to create the necessary blueprint for stretching your
accomplishments. Without a picture of your highest self, you can’t live
into that self. Fake it till you make it. The lie will become the truth one day.

 

 

wolf eyes focused

4. Always Keep your eyes on the prize.

Most of us never really focus. We constantly feel a kind of irritating
psychic chaos because we keep trying to think of too many things at
once.
Most of us tend to lose our focus in life because we’re perpetually worried about so
many negative possibilities. Rather than focusing on the end goal,
we worry about all the ramifications of falling. Rather than focusing on
our goals, we are distracted by our worries and fears.
But when you focus on what you want, it will come into your life.
When you focus on being a happy and motivated person, that is who you will be.

 

One day the A coach wanted to show his students a new technique of shooting an arrow. He told his students to cover his eyes with a cloth and then he shot his arrow. When he opened his eyes, he saw the target with no arrow in it and when he looked at his students, they looked embarrassed because their teacher had missed.

The Coach asked them, “What lesson do you think I intend to teach you all today?” They answered, “We thought you would show us how to shoot at the target without looking.” The Coach said, “No, I taught you that if you want to be successful in life, don’t forget the target. You have to keep an eye on the target, otherwise, you may miss a good opportunity in life.” They looked at each other, impressed with the lesson.

The moral of the story is we need to consistently focus on what we want and we need to realize that :

  • What thoughts we focus on we FEEL, therefore our thoughts have a direct effect on our emotions
  • What we focus on and feel we attract in our lives. Our destiny is consistently shaped by our thoughts.

 

5. Learn to sweat in peace-

The harder you are on yourself, the easier life is on you. Or, as they say
in the Navy Seals, the more you sweat in peacetime, the less you bleed
in war

There is a very famous quote by Bill gates,

“Amateurs Practice Until They Get It Right; Professionals Practice Until They Can’t Get It Wrong.”

So, You need to practice even when you are not actually facing the problem because if you keep practicing, you will be motivated and you will be charged to take up the responsibilities at any time.

This practice is well followed in defense, where soldiers have to practice every day, irrespective of whether they have to face war or not.

Even those students come out with flying colors, who practice throughout the year and not just during the examination.

According to Bill Gates,

The key to success in any field is, to a large extent, a matter of practicing a specific task for a total of around 10,000 hours.

If you dream to become a Future leader, you need to start practicing leadership skills and qualities while you’re still an amateur… at some points in time, some people will laugh at you, even your close friends will find you weird. But at a certain point, you’ll get your shot and guess what? you’ve practiced all your life for it and you’ll be more than ready!
