Live Your Life To The Fullest!

Are there times in your life when you really want to call it “quits” because you just can’t see any good results from all the hard work you’re doing? It’s so difficult to go on when everything seems to fail, isn’t it?

Hang in there… Never ever think of giving up. Keep in mind, Winners never quit and Quitters never win!

Take all negative words out of your mental dictionary and focus on solutions with the utmost conviction and patience. The battle is never lost until you’ve abandoned your vision.

But what if you’re really exhausted physically, mentally, and most of all emotionally? Utilize these four powerful ways to ignite your motivation to prompt you into reaching peaks of accomplishment you’ve only imagined.

1) The Overwhelming Feeling of Attaining your Desired End

How would you feel after accomplishing your mission? Of course you will feel ecstatic. Let this tremendous feeling sink in and encourage you to persist despite all odds.

Remember the tale of the race between the turtle and the rabbit. Many believed that the slow turtle had little to no chance of winning the race against the swift hare, based on the odds. Nevertheless, the turtle focused all of his attention on reaching the finish line… And of course he did, for a sweet victory and respect from his peers.

Use this technique to motivate yourself to achieve your ultimate goals.

2) The Reward System

How would you feel if you’ve entered a contest, but there are no prizes for the winners? It’s not very encouraging, isn’t it?

The same principles apply to your vision. Reward yourself after accomplishing a goal. Set a particular incentive for every objective.

Let’s say if you’ve achieved a particular task, you’ll treat yourself to your favorite restaurant. When you’ve finished a bigger task, you’ll go on a vacation.

Get the idea?

Just set something gratifying to indulge yourself with after completing a certain undertaking.

3) The Powerful Force of Humanity

If you want to succeed, surround yourself with the right kind of people who will support and encourage you all the way.

Be with people who have the same beliefs and aspirations as yours. Positive aura is generated by this fusion of collective energy from people of “like minds.”

On the contrary, being with people who oppose your ways of thinking may trigger a negative, yet very powerful, kind of motivation.

Has anyone ever said to you that “You’ll never get anywhere” or “You’re wasting your time with what you’re doing?”

Didn’t it make you furious and determined enough to prove to them how wrong they were?

When aggravated, you will do anything to make those who are against you swallow their words. But of course, your main focus should be on the accomplishment of your goal and not for the purpose of revenge. Never let your emotions toward others alter your main objective.

4) Take Care Of Your Health

Exercise regularly. Fill your brain with enough oxygen to allow you to do your daily tasks with more vigor and energy.

Take regular breaks if time allows. Having the will power to continue despite all hardships is extremely important, but you should still know your limits.

If you don’t take enough rest, you will not be able to think clearly and you will not be able to do your tasks properly. In the process, you will just get more frustrated.

Take sufficient sleep and recharge yourself after a hard day’s work. Never, ever ignore your health. I’ve learned my lesson when I sacrificed my health for the sake of success. I’ve worked very long hours everyday and just got minimal sleep… and as a result, I became ill.

It’s not worth it. Success won’t matter if you don’t have good health to enjoy it.

If you will follow along this guide of “4 Powerful Ways,” you will fire up your motivation and live your life to the fullest!

 

“Adventure isn’t hanging on a rope off the side of a mountain. Adventure is an attitude that we must apply to the day to day obstacles of life – facing new challenges, seizing new opportunities, testing our resources against the unknown and in the process, discovering our own unique potential.”   – John Amatt
