- Techniques To Increase Your Motivation
is one of the seemingly most important personal attributes to have in
our modern civilization. It seems that most people are trying to get
more motivated in order to achieve more in their daily lives.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with trying to
more motivated, however there are a number of techniques you can use to
actively increase your motivation.
This is especially true if there are a number of tasks that you feel
you want to do yet you feel that sense that you don't have the
motivation to get them done.
- increase your motivation by aligning with what you love
So how do
you increase your motivation?
the first step is to realize that there really isn't anything you can
do to authentically increase your motivation. For example, if you are
in alignment with what it is you are doing then there is no need to
motivate yourself to do it.
reason for this is that when you are in alignment with what it is you
are doing then you will naturally be motivated to do it. It is as
though you will just want to start working on your project as soon as
you wake up when it is in alignment with what you are wanting to do.
- motivate yourself from within
if you are having trouble motivating yourself to complete a task, the
first step is to ask yourself whether this is in alignment with what
you are on the planet to do.
I find there are a lot of people who are doing things in life that are
not in alignment with what they are here to do. No wonder they have a
hard time to motivate themselves to do the tasks they 'should' do.
order to find out what it is you are on the planet to do, the first
step is to go within and ask your heart center if this task is what it
wants to do.
listen to the subtle voice of your heart you will need to firstly
silence your mind. We all have a little voice within our head that
drowns out the subtle voice of the heart. For example, it may be saying
'Little voice? What little voice? I don't have a little voice!'
that is the little voice.
you silence this voice within your mind and enter into a sense of
no-mind then you are in the right space to listen to the softer voice
of your hear. You can then tap into the wisdom of your heart to see if
you are in alignment with the task you are having trouble motivating
yourself to do.
once you are in a state of no-mind, the next step is to place your
attention and awareness on your heart center. This is located right in
the middle of your breast bone and is about the size of a golf ball.
you place your attention on your heart center, you can then ask it
questions. Using your inner voice, you can simply ask your heat center
questions around the task you are having trouble motivating yourself to
I find 'What' questions are a good place to start, such as:
should I do about this task?'
do you want me to do?'
are you trying to tell me?'
you ask these questions to your heart center, the next step is to
simple listen to the messages your heart is giving you.
voice of the heart is a lot more subtle and a lot more gentle than the
voice within your head. The voice within the head will usually use a
lot of words, however the voice within your heart will generally use
only a few words at a time.
after you ask these questions around the tasks you feel you are having
a lack of motivation around then just spend some time listening to your
heart. This stage is more about listening rather then talking.
will probably find if you are not motivated to do the tasks that your
heart will say things like:
don't want you to do this.' or perhaps 'Take your time and go slower.'
can see here that the voice of the heart is simple, direct and to the
you tap into your heart it will give you clear messages around the task
you are not motivated to do. Then it is a matter of bravely obeying the
message within your heart.
example, if the message from your heart is to drop the task then it
will probably take courage to let go of the project you are working on.
However if you to choose to drop the project then you will probably
notice there is a larger sense of spaciousness within your life.
is this spaciousness that will allow more tasks to come into your life.
this spaciousness it is important to only take on tasks that are in
alignment with what your heart wants you to do. For when you are in
alignment with what your heart wants you to do then your life begins to
come into alignment.
you are in alignment with what your heart wants you to do then there is
no need to increase your motivation because you are naturally doing
what you are on the planet to do.
