改变人生的100个方法B

51. Advertise to yourself.

Loser visualize the penalties of failures and winners visualize the rewards for success. Without advertising our goals to ourselves, we can lose sight of them all together. Draw 4 circles on the blank piece of paper in the beginning of the day. The 4 circles represent goals for my day, my month, my year, and my life. Inside each circle, write down what I want. It can be a dollar figure, it can be anything. And the goals can change from day to day. By writing the goals down, I'm like an airline pilot with a radar. I'm orient my mind to what I'm up to in life. I'm reminding myself of what I really want. If I don't make a map, basically I'm saying "just take me anywhere."

52. Don't stop thinking.

Motivation comes from thought. Everything we do begins with a thought. And when we quit thinking, we lose the motivation to act. We eventually slip into pessimism and the pessimism leads to even less thinking. So a downward spiral of negativity and pessimitivity starts to feed on each other. Pessimists thinking so negativity about doing the whole thing perfectly that they end up doing nothing and become passive. The optimist on the other hand always does something, they always take some type of action, always feel like some type of progress is made. Pessimists continually use their imagination to visualize worse case scenarios and then concluding that those scenarios are so hopeless, they don't take any action. Therefore, pessimism always leads to passivity. Imagination should be used not to escape from reality, but to create it. Start a habit to yourself in start saying no to negativity. When negative thoughts start forming in your mind, which it will happen, even for optimists, don't stop thinking. Real creative thinking is going to lead to optimism. And optimism is always self-motivating.

53. Debate your dark side.

Negative thinking is something we all do. The difference is that the optimists becomes a "good debater." You can learn to debate your pessimistic thoughts. If you catch yourself being pessimistic, build a case of the optimistic view. Pretend your an attorney and your job is to prove the pessimists in you is wrong.

54. Make use of trouble.

We hear stories of bad events, when looking back, were strokes of great fortune. A person that breaks their leg skiing meets a doctor in the hospital, falls in love and marry that person. What seems horrible becomes a great event in their life. "Every problem carries a gift inside it." Now by choosing to make use of what seems to be a "bad event," by asking yourself "how can I use this?" "what might be good about this?" You can get to the gift inside the problem a lot more quickly.

55. Learn to brainstorm by yourself.

Put a goal on the top of a page and put numbers 1 through 20 on that page and begin your brainstorming session. List 20 ideas. They don't have to be well thought out or reasonable. Just make sure you flow. Your only objective is to have 20 ideas out in a certain amount of time. If you do this for one week, you will end up with 100 ideas. They will probably not all be usable, but who cares. Your beginning the process and you'll have more than you started out with.

56. Create your own voice.

You can create your own voice by practicing. Use audio cassettes in your car and sing out loud, even when you don't feel like singing. Practice. Force your practice. The point is don't let your feelings ruin your life. Keep thinking. Strategy. Plan. You can create anything you want. You can even create your own voice.

57. Live on the frontier.

The information age is our new frontier. Employers are not as interested as job history. They are more interested in current capabilities. Times has changed. It's all about what you can do now, not what you have done.

58. Replace your habits.

Self-motivation is mentally harder to achieve when we're held back by mentally bad habits. But here's the catch. Bad habits can't be gotten rid of because they exist for good reasons. Their there to do something for us even if that something ends up being self destructive. Down deep, even a bad habit is trying to make us operate better. That's why bad habits has to be transformed and built upon. They can't be killed. They can't be eliminated. What we're trying to do is "habit replacement" and where bad habits lives, replacement is the only thing that works. i.e. running replaces smoking because of the breathing. Subconsciously you don't even think a habit is bad because it's fulfilling a perceived need. The way to strengthen yourself is to identity the need and build on it. Honor the need by replacing the current habit with one that is healthier and more effective for you.

59. Paint your day.

Self-motivation is much more difficult to achieve when we're held back mentality by certain bad habits. When you wake up try picturing your day as a blank painter's canvas. Ask yourself, "Whose the artist today? Me or blind circumstance?" If you choose to be the artist, how do you want to paint your day?

60. Swim laps under water.

Prepare big challenges by swimming laps under water. Build your brain by building your lungs. Sometimes all you need is the air that you breathe just to motivate yourself. Going for a run or a walk or simply deep breathing gives the brain the fuels it needs to alive.

61. Get some coaching. ****

Get someone that can stand back and watch you objectively. Ask someone you admire to watch you and coach you for a while. Let them tell you want they see. It's a courageous thing for you to do and it will always lead to growth.

62. Leave home. ****

You do things that are holding you back because it feels like home. When you do these things, you do them because that's what your comfortable doing so you make yourself right at home doing them. As they say, there's no place like home. Home can an ugly place if it's not kept up and consciously made beautiful. Home can be a dark, damp, prison. Smelling for bad habits and laziness. But we think we're safe there. However when we inspect the wore out house more closely, the safety we think we're experiencing is pure self limitation. You might want to identify the habits that keeps you trapped. Identify what you decided is your final personality. Understand that it might be a hasty construction built only to keep you safe from risk and growth. Once you done that, you can leave home. You can get the blue prints out and create a home you really want.

63. Perform rituals.

Ask you listen, you might notice that ACTION is always the key. Doing something always leads to results. An object in motion stays in motion. One great ritual for activating the brain is walking. When you have problems in your life that seems too overwhelming but use the ritual of walking and take the problem out for a long, long walk. Time and time again during the course of the walk something comes out of nowhere. Some idea for an action that would solve the problem. Try to make a ritual for yourself. Anything that will act as an self starter. Rituals will start an action before you feel like getting into the action. Rituals always override your build in laziness. They always get you motivated in a predictable, controllable way.

64. Start your life over. ****

If you catch yourself thinking your too old to start something you want to do please recognize that your not listening to the pessimistic voice inside of you. It's the voice of a liar. Remind the voice of all the people that started their lives over again at any age they wanted to. Don't listen to the voice inside, you can start your life over right now.

65. Keep all your promises. ****

One way to motivate yourself is to keep some usual promise. To go to someone I cared about either personally or professionally and make a real big promise to them. Something that takes all the creativity and effort I had to make it happen. Although some of these promises I made weren't kept, it's not really an intelligent way to self-motivate. Instead make commitments to other people, but know that these commitments are ones you know you can keep. But to motivate yourself, replace promising to others to promising and setting goals to yourself. The power goals is that they can be outrageous and huge. They can be really wild possibility thinking. Without setting large goals internally, you will just end up living a life of what you think you HAVE TO do.

66. Give some luck away.

You cannot live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you. There is one way to make sure you can't get repaid and that's to do something for someone who won't know who did it. You can create LUCK in your life by giving it away.

67. Draw your universe.

You can create your own goal directed universe by using the 4 circle goal setting discussed earlier. Label the 1st circle "Life long dream." Circle 2 label "My year." 3rd circle "My month." Circle 4 "My day." Each circle if done successfully guarantees the success of the next circle. If you hit your daily goal everyday, your monthly goal will be hit. And similar for month to year, year to life. The system itself is not the motivator. It is your understanding of your responsibility to be a creative planet that's what the motivator is.

68. Get up a game.

Competition is great for motivation. Competition teaches a valuable lesson that no matter how good you think you are, there's always someone else better than you. That's the lesson in humility that everybody needs. And it teaches you by trying to beat somebody else, you reach more inside of you. Trying to beat somebody else puts the game by into life. If it is done optimistically it benefits both competitors. It teaches them sportsmanship and it gives you a beach mark for measuring you own growth. So in your life, let the games begin. Have fun winning and losing. When someone has insulted you or under rated you, don't just get even, get better. Use your victory, not to hurt them, but to create you.

69. Try your mother down.

We first learn how to explain to world to ourselves from our parents, more especially our mothers. This can be a disaster if the child has a pessimistic mother. The disaster can only be temporary. Optimism can be learned at any age. It's not self motivating to blame mom if your a pessimists. Blaming others is never self motivating because it strengthens the belief that your life is being influenced by forces outside of yourself. Love your mom. But change yourself.

70. Face the sun.

"When you face the sun, the shadows always fall behind you" - Helen Keller. This is her way of recommending optimistic thinking. When you look at what you face grows in your life, what you ignore falls behind you. If you turn and only look at the shadows, they become your life.

71. Look inside.

Most of us wait to discover who we are from the impressions we get from other people. "Oh do you think I'm like that..." If we get positive feedback, that's great. It helps build us up. But ideally, your journey should be internal. Travel deeper and deeper inside to find out your own potential. Your potential is your true identity. It only waits for self motivation to come alive.

72. Go to war. *

Research shows during times for war suicide rates go down. We don't to wait for something tragic. We don't have wait until we go to war to attack us from without. We can get the same vitality by challenging ourselves from within. "All battles are first won or lost in the mind." Joan of Ark. Ask yourself what would you do if you had only one year to live. How would I live differently? What exactly would I do? This exercise can reveal skills inside of you that your not using today.

73. Make small change.

When practicing self motivation, it can be common that you get a lot of different type of mood swings. Sometimes you'll be on a real high on the idea of who you can be and set up to change yourself overnight. Then your old habits will pull you back to who you use to be and then you become demoralized. You have eventually accept the idea that great things are created slowly. Great painting, great building. So why can't you see that great people are also created slowly. So if you willing to see yourself as a masterpiece in progress, then you'll love small changes. You'll be excited by a tiny thing you did differently today. You should celebrate because your moving in the direction of self creation.

74. Do something badly. ****

Sometimes we don't do things because we not sure we cannot do them well. We feel that we are not "in the mood" or our energy levels is not are the right state to do that task that we have. So we put it off or wait for inspiration to arrive. We're so afraid to do things until we're sure we can do them well, we end up not doing anything. This is the source of all writers block btw. "If a thing is worth doing, it's worth doing badly." If your not motivated to do something you know you need to do, just decide to do it badly. Add a little self deprecated humor. Be comedic about what your doing. And then enjoy what happens to you once your in the process.

75. Be a visioneer.

The principle of "visioneering." You cannot do anything you cannot picture yourself doing. Visioneering is just another word for picturing yourself. Once you make the picturing process conscious and deliberate, you begin to create the self you want to be.

76. Shine your light. ****

Taking things lightly was the most spiritually advanced thing you can do to improve your effectiveness in life. After all, it's God's angels that take themselves so lightly that they are able to fly. And if his angels takes themselves so lightly, imagine how lightly he takes himself. Your own motivational level will always be lifted with humor. Anytime your stuck, ask yourself to take things lightly. Ask yourself to look for some funny solutions. Laughter will destroy all limits to your thinking. When your laughing, your open to anything.

77. Be a list writer. ****

Never hesitate to site down and make lists. The more you write down what it is that you want, the more you can dictate your future. A goal gains power when you write it down and it gains MORE POWER every time you write it down. Now we're always looking for motivation in what others have written. But if you become a creative list maker, you'll learn how to motivate yourself by what you've written.

78. Be the change. ****

Don't try to change other people. It doesn't work. You'll waste your life trying. We talk to our children for hours in what we think they should do with their life. But children don't change from what we say, they learn from what we do. By being what you want them to be, you can lead by inspiration. What you tell people to do often goes right by them. Who you are, doesn't. The change in you is contagious. When you yourself change, watch how the people around you change.

79. See the gold. ****

In every circumstance, we can look for the gold or we can look for the filth. And what we look for, we'll find. Opportunities are only available to a careful observer. Your opportunities will multiple when and only when you choose to see them.

80. Simplify.

Why run a simple set of basic plays? It's hard to be aggressive when your confused. When you simplify your life, it gathers energy.

81. Pin life down.

Countering moves is still countering. Enter a wrestling match with a plan. A serious of moves thought out ahead of time. A goal without an action plan is a day dream. Before any adventure, take time to plan. Let life respond to you. If your making all the first moves you'll be surprised on how often you can "pin life down."

82. Strengthen your purpose. *

Energy comes from purpose. If the left side of the brain tells the right side there's a sufficient crisis, the right side sends energy and sometimes super human energy. That's why there's a difference from people who set and achieve goals all day and people who just do whatever they feel like doing. The first person, there's always added purpose. To the other person, there is boredom and confusion. The two greatest robbers of energy. Because we are totally responsible for our own sense of purpose, that also means we're totally responsible for the energy of our lives.

83. Go on a news fast.

"New fast." Stop watching the news for a few weeks. If you go for a period of time without listening to or reading the news, you'll notice an optimism and upswing upon your life and energy. Your mind is yours to fill with whatever you want. The more you accept the responsibility of filling it, the easier it will be to build an optimistic and effective mind set.

84. Choose an action.

When you find yourself worrying about something, always ask yourself an "action question." "What can I do about this right now?" And then do it. Any small thing. Anything that worries you should be acted on. Not just thought about. Even small actions that starts to chase away your fears and put you back in control to what you want.

85. Be a thinker.

There are 2 kinds of workers, the whiners and the thinkers. The whiners are very smart, dedicated employees that worked long hours, but when they come into the presidents office it was always to complain. They are great at finding fault with other managers and pointing out what's wrong with the system. But they drain the president because they are so negative and it's hard to make them feel better. Then after that, the president is depressed. The thinkers however had a different way of coming to the office with problems. The thinkers come to the president with ideas. They see the same problems as the whiners but they already thought about possible solution. When your committed to self motivation, you'll follow into the realm of the thinker naturally. You'll be more valuable to your company and yourself.

86. Choose enjoyment. ****

There's a huge difference between "pleasure" and "enjoyment." And when we're absolutely clear about the difference, we can grow faster in becoming who we want to be. What we do for pleasure, for example, routine sex, eating, drinking, all kind of short term stuff, that's different than what we do for enjoyment. Enjoyment always involve a use of a skill and it always involves facing a challenge. Things like sailing, gardening, golfing, any kind of activity like that involving skills meeting a challenge results in enjoyment. People who get clear on the difference begins to know how to consciously put more enjoyment into their lives.

87. Read mystery novels.

The person with the highest IQ measured recommends reading mystery novels. They are brain builders. The brain can be built as surely and quickly as the muscles in the body. So the next time curling up to a good mystery, don't feel guilty. It might be the most productive thing you done all day.

88. Express your thoughts.

Go ahead and feel your feelings. But when it's time to talk, be thoughtful and express your thoughts.

89. Use your weaknesses.

Make a list of your strengths and weaknesses on separate pieces of paper. Place the list of strength somewhere where you'll see it again because just looking at it will pick you up. Now look at your list of so called weaknesses and study them for a while. Stay with it until you feel no shape or guilt about them. Allow them to become interesting characteristics instead of something negative. Ask yourself how each characteristic can be useful to you. i.e. Arnold's accent became a strength. Now there isn't anything on your list of weakness that can't be a strength if you think about it long enough.

90. Try becoming your problem. *

Whatever type of problem your facing, the most self motivational process that I know of is to immediately say to yourself, "I'm the problem." Because once you see yourself as the problem, you can see yourself as the solution. By seeing ourselves as victims of our problems, we lose the power to solve them. To activate the power inside ourselves we need to take only 2 essential steps. 1. Own the problem. 2. Create the solution.

91. Inflate your goal. ****

This self motivator can be used as an intellectual tool. Take a certain goal of yourself and double it or triple it or multiple it by ten. And then ask yourself quite seriously what would you have to do to achieve that new goal. Remember, this is just a self contained game and not a promise to anyone else. But it is a game that's fun to play. Why? Because it works.

92. Come to your own rescue. ****

1. You can't leave a place you never been. 2. No one is coming. I use to believe I can run from all my freighting thoughts and beliefs about myself. But all that ever did was create deeper internal fears and conflicts. What I needed to do was to get all my fears into the sunshine and demystify them. Once I systematically was able to do that, I was able to dismantle the fears like bomb squid does to a bomb. Acceptance and full conscious of those fears was the place I've never been. Once I was in that place, I could leave. The notion that no one is coming is more terrifying. You can much happier if you value independence and self-reliancy then depending on someone else. So when you accept the idea that no one is coming, it's actually that very powerful moment. It means you accepted that you are enough. You can actually handle problems yourself. You can grow. You can get strong. You can generate your own happiness. And paradoxically, from that position of independence truly great relationships can be built because they are not based on dependency. They are not based on fear. They are based on mutual independence and love. See how much better you are at self motivation once you begin to celebrate the news that you are enough.

93. Push your own buttons.

Motivation never has to be accidental. Any form of motivation. A lot of people like to motivate themselves musically for example. But you don't have to wait for hours until a certain song comes on the radio that picks up your spirits. You can control what songs you hear. If there are certain songs that lifts you up, create a greatest hits motivation tape for yourself. You got much more control over your environment than you ever realized. Learn how to push your own buttons.

94. Strengthen your rehearsal.

The harder you are on yourself, the easier life is on you. There isn't anything that life can challenge you with that you can't challenge yourself with ahead of time. You can set yourself up to succeed. If you have to make a presentation in front of someone that scares you, you can always rehearse it in front of someone that scares you even more. If you got something hard to do and your hesitant to do it, find something even harder and do that first. Watch what it does to your self-motivation going into the real challenge.

95. Improve your vision. *

"It's not what a vision is, it's what a vision does." So what does your vision do to you? Does it give you energy? Does it make your smile? When your tired, does it give you energy to go that extra mile? A vision should be judged by these criteria. The criteria of power and effectiveness. In other words, what does it do? What do you want to bring into being. If your vision isn't giving you energy then picture another one. Keep at it until you develop a vision that is so colorful and so clear it puts you in action just to think about it.

96. Build your power base. *

The more awake you are, the more conscious you are, and the more you pay attention to how your own efforts at self-motivation are succeeding, the more powerful you'll become. Your knowledge of self-motivation is power in it of itself. Respect your knowledge and build on it.

97. Link truth to beauty. ****

The best case for honesty is how beautiful it is. How clean it clear it makes the journey from current reality to the dream. Truth leads you to a more confident level in your relationships with others and with yourself. It diminishes fear and it increases your sense of personal mastery. Lies, half-truths, will always weigh you down. Where as truth will clear up your thinking and give you the energy and clarity needed for self motivation.

98. Take NO for a question. ****

Ask the universe for what you want. Don't take NO for an answer. Take NO for a question. When you ask for something that is denied to you, imagine that the NO you heard is really the question, "Can't you be more creative than that?" Never accept NO at face value. Let rejection motivate you to get more creative.

99. Walk with LOVE and DEATH. ****

Whenever I need to get through something, create something or face some kind of courageous plan, I always take long walks. When I walk long and far enough a solution always appears. I eventually get oriented to the most creative action. Andrew Wiles in "Spontaneous Healing" says when you walk, the movements of your limbs are cross patterned. The right leg and left arm move forward at the same time and the left leg and right arm. The spontaneous type of movement generates electrical activity in the brain that has a harmonizing influence on the central nervous system. A special benefit of walking that you don't necessary get from other type of exercise. I call it "A Walk with Love." Because love and fear are opposites. Most people think love and hate are opposites but their not. The ultimate creativity occurs from the spirit of love. Love is always creative and fear is always destructive. And I called it a "A Walk with Death" because it is only the acceptance and awareness of my own death that give my life the clarity it needs to make my life exciting. Take your own challenges out for a walk. Feel your own self-motivation growing inside of you. Feel the electricity in your brain. Feel it harmonize with your central nervous system. You'll soon know for a fact that you do have what it takes. You can walk courage into existence.

100. Buy yourself flowers.

Buy yourself flowers and every time you look at them, let them remind you of how colorful your future is going to be. How fresh your thoughts are. How easy it is to honor yourself. How much power you have to make your environment beautiful. And how sweet the smell of the universe can be.
