7 motivational tips to get you in the game.
Motivational Tip No.1 : Stay Positive At All Times
Keep a positive outlook at all times, make a conscious effort to be upbeat about your work, your life and anything else that matters. Don’t let yourself focus on the doubts or the negative emotions of having a bad day. With the right mindset you can overcome anything. Being in a positive state of mind helps you get more done, and with better results. Being positive can also motivate others around you.
Motivational Tip No.2 : Use Prep Talk To Get You Going
Never ever think that you cannot do something, or say that it is too tough. Keep reminding yourself that you can accomplish whatever it is you are doing. Face yourself in the mirror and tell yourself you are capable of more than you ever dream off. Focus on the positive, and keep reminding yourself whenever the going gets tough. You can do it, one step at a time.
Motivational Tip No.3 : Get Involved
Get stuck in. That is how you progress in this game. The hardest part is always the first step, once you build momentum you can get through anything. It might be tough in the beginning, you might find it hard to keep your mind on what it is you are doing. But once you get past the first hurdle, rest assured the second hurdle is a doodle. By getting involved, you also play off each other’s energy and focus on the job at hand. Start contributing and other people will help you stay the course.
Motivational Tip No.4 : Grow Your Confidence
Confidence comes from knowing you can do the job, it is part knowledge, learning, experience and personality. Confidence comes from a positive outlook in life, it comes from being involved in the organization. Knowing the people in the organization can help you out, they can be your back-up or safety net when something big comes up. You can focus on your job better when you know you have a group of people who will help you out when a curve ball comes out of nowhere. The more you do, the more experience you will have, and it is experience that builds up your confidence.
Motivational Tip No.5 : Always Finish What You Start
You will never get anything done unless you finish what you start. You need to be focused on the job at hand, or the issue on the table. Don’t let yourself be distracted, or wander off to do something else that isn’t essential. Develop this trait of always getting the job finished. It is about effectiveness at what you do and delivering consistent results. You don’t have to be brilliant or a superstar, you just need to finish what you start. You will be surprised how this simple trait is valued in all organizations. Do this and you will out-perform all the “superstars”.
Motivational Tip No.6 : Get Organized
Make sure you set goals and targets for yourself, and your goals should have a dateline. This will keep you focused. Plan your days and your work-flow, have a weekly and daily organizer at hand. Understand that you cannot finish everything at once. You will need a team of people who will work with you. The more effective you are at organizing your resources and assets, the more efficient you will be. Be realistic about what you can achieve, and accept the fact that nothing worthwhile comes without hardwork.
Motivational Tip No.7 : Reward Yourself
Give yourself a reward for your success. By rewarding yourself, you are also motivating yourself to do even better. Give yourself some time off, go somewhere to unwind. Have a good time. Then get back into the game and do it all over again.
