Today is the world of competition and everyone wants to stay ahead, but only some people win this race of competition. People who are self motivated or confident about their deeds can be topped in this race. Motivation is an inner force that drives you to do some work. It energizes you to do whatever you want to do and pushes you to attain your goals. People who are self-motivated tend to be more organized and can improve their overall quality of life. In worst case, people can always motivate themselves by practicing meditation and yoga on regular bases.
Motivation sometime plays an important role to maintain the level of confidence while working in a job. Being an entrepreneur is a dream of most of the enthusiastic people, but they have to put off their dream career due to many reasons. They have to do the regular job and always live in a fear that they will be fired by their boss. While working as a regular employee, they start losing their level of confidence so it is important to motivate yourself to work. Sometime, the fear of loosing job and extreme workload may result in stress and anxiety.
Making yourself work implies how to manage yourself in the working environment without losing your self-confidence. As it is not always easy to keep motivate ourselves, one need to learn about how to make yourself work in worst conditions. Most of us has enough potential and courage to work, the only lacking part is to identify the right way to keep ourself working. Motivate ourselves is not an easy job, but it’s doable, so you should do this. There are some few ideas that can be helpful for motivating yourself at work:
Keep calm and do meditation
This one is very important point to charge your mind with fresh ideas. Whenever you feel stressed and lack of news ideas to start with; close your eyes and take deep breath. Checkout different breathing exercise (Pranayama) to relax your mind.
Start working even-if you are not feeling comfortable
Sometime it happens that, we ignore taking an assignment just because we are not feeling fresh. This can be your worst mistakes as avoid working on assignment will result in more stress at the end. For example, if you would like to write anything, you should sit down in front of your text editor. For instance, if you are going to clean house or read any stuff online or watch any video then you can put off the moment and start writing whatever you want to.
Think like you are helping someone
There is nothing wrong, when you are helping yourself by building a new career or business. It will be a worthy endeavor to help yourself by starting a new venture. But, if you are working or showing up, then create a thought that you are helping someone. No doubt when you are doing hard-work, you have some fear about the related job, but if you are looking at the fear, you are only looking at the downside and you totally ignore upside. So, it’s good if you think like you are helping someone at work. This will also help you to develop a positive attitude towards your colleague.
Carve out some time
Making time for yourself is very essential and you are the only person that can do this. Be strict about your routine and put that time on your calendar. Don’t make any lame excuse that you are too busy and unable to carve out time. You can carve out your time by stop watching TV, browsing on the internet, looking on social media websites or anything else. Make that time scared and don’t let anyone or anything to interfere. You will have to be ruthless to make this happen.
Start with the smallest possible step
This small step may result to great success. For instance, taking small step doesn’t mean like you have to write the first section of the report, you just need to open your document or write any single word. If you can take that first tiny step, then the next step will become easier automatically. So, get over from the initial hurdle and make it as low as possible. You will become a person that can clear every hurdle very easily because you have an unstoppable force of nature.
Sometimes the feeling of fear is good
Most of the people believe that, fear has only negative effect and yes, we can’t deny this fact but it doesn’t mean that it only causes negative effects. Sometimes it’s good also so let yourself feel the fear. Fear is only our mind’s creation and it is important to admit that you are afraid. You should be open to the feeling of fear and experience it. You should also see where it is coming from and what scenarios are liable to create this fear and now it’s time to question yourself that, are these scenarios real and if yes then how to handle these scenarios. You could survive and handle these scenarios for sure.
Never hesitate to shout for help
No one in the world who is perfect and knows everything. If you are facing any trouble to motivate yourself then you should take help from others. Social motivation is considered as a most powerful motivation. So go ahead and ask for some accountability from others. You are special so give importance to yourself if you fail. So, get up and search for the other best way to motivate yourself.
Ready to accept failure
I found many people avoid taking new challenges because they afraid of failure. If you face the failure that doesn’t mean you are failure! As each failure teaches so many important lessons that can be helpful to achieve success in the future. So, never hesitate to start working on new challenges, that will not only boost your confidence but also will help you to motivate yourself.
You have the power to make yourself work even if you are afraid or work under any fear. You can ruthlessly make time for yourself, take a small step, feel the fear and try to overcome it, find inspiration in the people you are going to help. Believe in yourself, you can do everything whatever you wish to do.
