If you want to live a good, happy life, then your mindset has to be geared in a specific way. You simply will not get what you want out of this life if you actively look for faults and think about what can go wrong. If you are accepting of yourself and know that you’re special, then you’re going to enjoy the life in front of you. If you feel as though you’re full of flaws and there are problems around every corner, life is going to be a struggle. 

Becoming a positive person might seem a little alien if you’ve never really been that way inclined before. It’s a habit that you can get into, however. It’s just a case of training the brain and doing a few of the same things over and over again. Here are some things you can do to get everything moving: 

Surround Yourself With People Who Are Good For You

In this life, there will be people who bring you down and people who lift you up – you’re going to want to hang around with people who do the latter. It’s amazing how our brains are seriously influenced by what others think and how others behave. If you’re around miserable people with no ambition, then the likelihood is that you’ll also be that way inclined. 

Surround Yourself With Positive Content

The same goes for the kinds of content you surround yourself with. We’re talking about TV shows, films, podcasts, and even pictures on your wall. If you take in things that suggest life is miserable and that everything is against you, then you’re going to lose in this world. A positive mind comes from positive surroundings – even when you lose, you feel as though you won at something if you have positive, happy content. Your mind is, again, supremely impressionable. You have to keep telling yourself you’re great.

Take Negatives And Flip Them Around 

You will be handed some pretty bad hands in life. Things aren’t going to go amazingly all of the time and you will be crushed at some point because that’s how life goes. You can either sit around and be miserable or you can try to find the good things that came from it. Even if you have issues with, say, your eyes – you can ignore it and pretend like the world is against you, or you could look for the likes of chronic uveitis treatments and find a genuine solution. Life is all about dealing with what you’re given.

Understand That You Probably Won’t Get Another Shot

Life is not forever and you’re not going to get another go at this. Do what you can to have fun and make sure you don’t waste what you have. 

Keep Yourself Active

If you keep yourself active and fit, you’re going to give yourself a physical AND mental boost. Your mental boost comes from the chemicals that your brain lets out. In terms of motivation to even get this going, we all know it can be quite difficult. The good thing is that it’s all about habits – once you start, you’ll likely keep it up.

Find Motivation in Minutes

Find Motivation in Minutes

My biggest motivation for me personally is my goals, which together form the vision of the man I want to become. That guy is easily my biggest motivation! I truly love my life now… but his life looks absolutely incredible! So every single day that vision motivates me and inspires me to keep putting in the work I need to in order to make that vision a reality.

In the past I struggled with being happy along the way, and for some silly reason I only allowed myself to be truly happy when I had achieved something amazing, which of course was only sporadically, setting myself up for months of unhappiness. But over the last four or five years I have really made the conscious decision to enjoy every step along the way.

It’s true what they say, it is as much about the journey as it is the destination. So for anyone out there like me who is super ambitious, please remember that you can allow yourself to be happy every single day, just by making the conscious decision to do so.

During a recent interview I was asked why so many people are not motivated in life. I stated that the reason so many people are unmotivated about life is because they don’t have anything in their lives to be motivated about. If you don’t have goals, or things you want to do or achieve, or things that you truly love doing, then there is no way you are going to be jumping out of bed excited about life to get to work every day.

As you probably know I am the founder of a full-service personal development called ‘Manifold Motivation’ and as our name suggests, we specialize in motivation. I think that motivation is both an art and a science, or a ‘why’ and a ‘how’ as I often describe it.

The reason one thing motivates some and not others has to do with our unique emotional triggers. When I am working with a client who has ambition to do something, but can’t seem to find the motivation, I use certain techniques to find out what really matters to them. I ask them questions that delve deeper and deeper into their ‘why’. Once I have done this and got some results it is far easier for that person to make progress towards their goals, as they’re no longer battling against feeling unmotivated. Instead they can focus all their energy on the important tasks at hand.

The next step is that after you have figured out your ‘why’, you then have to find your ‘how’. This will act as your ‘motivational hacks’ to jump start you when you’re feeling lazy or uninspired. For me, I have lots of hacks for various areas of my life, and they are all equally important to my productivity. You have to find your own ‘how’, and your own ‘hacks’, but only you have the keys to unlocking what those are.

So if I could offer any advice to someone struggling with motivation I would tell them that firstly, they have to find a ‘why’ that truly drives them and inspires them to take action. And secondly, I would tell them to work to find different hacks they can use that they know will motivate them in minutes. You can either do these things yourself, or you can hire someone to help you get there faster, but regardless of the route you take, make sure you do something, because there is a door that leads to all the places you have ever dreamed of; but the key to unlocking that door is your motivation.

So you see, the secret to motivation is having a powerful ‘why’ and an intelligent ‘how’. These two elements form the art and science of human motivation, and that’s the quickest way to get you from you are to where you want to be.
