Thoughts on Healing: Motivation



By  Rianne Collignon     12:58    Labels:, 
Dear People,
Often, I hear from clients who struggle to get motivated to work towards their life goals and to take care of themselves. Today I'm writing you about how to help yourself keep the motivation going.

Motivation: the wrong way
A lot of us have tasks we don't relish doing or that we do like to do but never seem to have time for. It seems like it's natural then to go for the stick approach. Criticize ourselves for not getting things done or being angry at ourselves. The silly things is - we know that this doesn't motive others - but we still use it on ourselves. We still think that if we are just a bit stricter towards ourselves we'd be motivated to do it. No. Doesn't work that way.

Often, the negative energy that this creates, makes it's even harder to complete tasks. We aren't only dealing with getting motivation to do it, but also with the history of abuse we heaped upon ourselves and the feeling of failure.

Motivation: Releasing old feelings
Trust me, if you are still blaming yourself for being super late with dealing with your taxes last year and you make the commitment to do it earlier this year - it's still very likely you will be late. Your feelings of failure and unease from last years debacle will most likely still linger.

So first step in getting motivated to do the things you want to do is releasing old feelings of failure and upset. You can do that being using EFT, a visualisation or a gentle forgiveness affirmation. Or listen to some nice music to let go.Take some time to do this until the task you need to do feels emotionally neutral instead of charged.

Motivation: Building positivity
So now you are with a neutral task that you really want to do. To keep yourself motivated, it's time to add some positivity to it. Why do you want to do this task? What will it bring you? Will you be at ease once your taxes are filed? Will you be happy once you finish that project or clean up your home?

Spend some time fantasying about the results of your task so it becomes positive and joyful. If you find out you can't do that - maybe this task isn't for you. Maybe you need somebody else to do your taxes which is fine.

Motivation: Scheduling
So now that it feels positive to do this task - be sure to schedule it. Often we are quite busy and some of the things we want to do might take 20 or 100 hours. So start scheduling it in. Do you want to spend 2 hours Friday evening to start writing your book or do you want to schedule a weekend to paint your walls?

Schedule schedule schedule! If you don't do it, the flow of life will most likely take you into all kinds of interesting directions - which is wonderful but won't get those tasks done. And no tasks done is no reward that you just realized you want. Forgive yourself if your plans don't shape up as soon as you want but keep the positivity going. And don't forget to reward yourself when things go right on top of the expected payoff.
