Remaining Always Motivated – 2

Hey guys!!! I am back again with our hot topic of blog: Remaining Always Motivated. This is the second part of the article called as Remaining Always Motivated – 1.

In the first part, I disused about internal and external motivation. Then I discussed about how external motivation is increased, and how internal motivation is affected. Environment and situations play an important role in affecting motivation. And the people who doesn’t get motivated are lacking internal motivation. In this article I will write about how one can get internal motivation and fight inner warrior, the environment which is decreasing one’s internal motivation, and how to change it and rise internal motivation.

Like yesterday, I will write it on basis of examples of my own life experience. So, when you are seeing that your environment is not suitable for you and you won’t be able to follow your passion or dreams there, then the very first step to be taken is to change it. Well, changing environment is good option but that will not give you surety that you will achieve your goals now. Let’s take example to understand it. There is a friend of mine. In his home, there are so much problems mostly financial related to family and income is way too low, so all the time in home there is depression. And due to this depression, everyone is angry most of time and most time there is fight between any two random family members. Now, my friend who  wants to achieve his goals through living in that home. Well, he can  control and try to understand the situation, but as I said in last part, you will get wet in every situation in the water. The important point is how get affected , because that’s the factor affecting your motivation either positively or negatively. So, water is family and home, and it is upto him to make decision and how he motivates himself. He can try solving the problem in the family. If solved successfully, then he can live happily and remember the more happiness creates the  more motivation. A very excited and happy person will work very hard and very efficiently as compared to a sad and depressed person whose mind and heart both are busy and engaged in feelings of the problem. But, if family problem doesn’t get solved, then he can also leave home and live someplace else for a while to get some encouragement to fight. Its like calm before storm or as I always say rest is best for test. But if he can’t leave home, then the most challenging job to do is left and i think that’s the last option he got . That is change the  environment by creating your own environment. To do this, the very first thing he has to do is forget about all the problems and tensions he is facing internally, emotionally, and mentally due to family. I always think that if it seems that solving problem is impossible then  try to forget it for a while and get relax so that you get energy to solve it next time. When he forgets everything, then the next thing he has to do is to create environment which motivates you internally. How can you do this? Well, I think there are lots of methods to do this. What I would say is create such surrounding that you remember every minute that there is nothing to worry and you got no problem at all, and then you have to just relax, and get motivated. Forgetting about problems is not about being careless, it is about getting some rest, encouragement, and motivation. Back to the point, how can we create surrounding that makes us remember that everything is okay and there is nothing to worry. Actually, motivation is a mind game, which we play with our own mind. Our mind tries to think about problems and solutions, and we on other side try to make mind believe that there is nothing to worry. What is need to do this? If our mind is busy in thinking about solutions of other problems, how we are supposed to think on other things. So, to work efficiently on problems, it is quite necessary to relax the mind, so we make fake impression before our mind that there is not any problem to think or worry. How we do this then? Well, its different and unique way for each person in this world. What I did was keep everything which motivates me not only in front of myself but also handy as well. For example, i was working on a game once. It’s been almost 2 weeks, and I was stuck in some serious bugs. I was tired of applying thousands of different solutions and was very demotivated. What I did to rise my motivation was to forget about all the problems. I went to outing, had some fun, went to party, and enjoyed company of friends. Then, I placed all the things which are related to the game in front of my eyes. For example, all the time my PC was on, desktop wallpaper  of PC was snapshot of game. All documents related to game were placed on my bed in hard copy. Days were passing away, and each time i saw these things I got some wave in my mind that i have to finish it. And in few days, I was back at my PC working overnight on the solution of game, and boom boom this time I really solved it. I face these kind of situations a lot of times. What i do is simply create an environment which motivates you. Most importantly, you have to be in fresh mood. For this, I use to ignore the problems for a while, then create the environment. Remember, if you won’t take some time to ignore and get relaxed, and will create environment, then tha environment will make ur worries more. You can even get frustrated. So, rest is really important in this situation.

In conclusion, what I wrote today was about creating the environment. Everyone wants different environment. You have to figure out that what kind of environment motivates you. And then you have to create that environment.

In the next part, I will write about how motivation is affected by emotions like being happy, sad, and so on. And, how can you take advantage of this trick to remain more motivated.
