Willpower is essential to the accomplishment
of anything worthwhile. – Brian Tracy
Enhancing your will-power, is likely one of the best training programs you can invest in. Why? let’s start by differentiating motivation and willpower.
If you’re bored with life, if you don’t get up every morning with a burning desire to do things—you don’t have enough goals –Lou Holtz
It feels good to know we’ve entered a New Year filled with much glaring and amazing things to do and challenges to face and yes it also come with victories! I’ve come to realize that creating and monitoring goals for yourself, is one of the most effective, entertaining and interesting ways of improving who you are.
The person who makes a success of living is the one who sees his goals steadily and aims to it unswervingly
—Cecil B. De Mille
Life is more than just following the normal eat, sleep, conquer repeat routine, there is more to it than that. As a matter of fact, we all have a role to play in structuring the kind of life we envision to live. Setting goals isn’t just like a to-do list that we accomplish today or tomorrow, but a starting point toward structuring the life we dream to have. I have been setting my goals though but I only write them down in my personal diary. So from what I’ve come to realize, making it [our goals] open, will push us to try and accomplish them. According to the research I made, It was mind-boggling to know that only 3% of the world’s populations actually write down their goals. Took some inspiration from Jack Canfield’s 101 goal list and I had to ask myself few “what” questions like
What do I want to do?
What do I need to do?
What do I want to see?
Where do I want to see?
Where do I want to be?
What legacy do I want to leave?
What do I want to share?
What do I want to have?
After asking those questions, I figured my answers came as a laid-down goal to achieve.
You may ask why I’m publicising it.
It’s simple here’s why:
All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts
and made up of our thoughts. If a man speak or act with an evil thought, suffering follows him as the wheel follows the hoof of the beast that draws the wagon…. If a man speak or act with a good thought, happiness follows him like a shadow that never leaves him.
He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.
It’s a well known fact that each and everyone of us have got dreams. I mean those big audacious and scary dreams that when you tell someone about it they’re like “what?”
The challenges in our lives are there to STRENGTHEN our CONVICTIONS. They are
NOT there to run us over.
Challenges is when you are trying to get up a stair case and at the middle, it just seems there is nothing to place your foot on–when there is.
When your focus is strong, and your mind is glued to your reward, challenges will be surmounted.
Difficult periods in our lives can be challenging, but using them as opportunities to change and
grow can be rewarding.
A positive attitude causes a chain reaction
of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary
results. – Wades Boggs
The world we live in is like a sea of vibrating energy. Everywhere you go, anywhere you look energy exists. It exists outside of you
and not knowingly, it exists inside you. In case you don’t know, we as humans are all made up of energy. In our product presentation, we tell our audience that our body is made up of systems (respiratory, circulatory etc.) and systems are made of organs (lungs, heart, pancreas etc.) and organs are made up of tissues then tissues are made up of cells.
Now if you go deeper than cells, you will find out were made up of molecules, then smaller than molecules are atoms until finally we got subatomic particles, electrons, protons, neutrons and physicists right now are finding much smaller particles called
quarks etc. Now here’s the catch, smaller than the smallest of the known particles is a sea of vast vibrating energy. So we humans are literally made up of nothing but energy. Our bodies emit energy, and one of the most powerful form of radiating this energy is through our thinking. So when you think of something, your thought actually release that energy into the world around you. The good thing here, whatever your goals and plans in your life is, the Universe is conspiring to make it happen for you. As long as you think of how, it will happen. We live in a friendly Universe.
As energies attract like energies, what we think of comes to us.
According to Rhonda Byrne, in the book the secrets,
It is as if you become a big human magnet, where anything that you think and believe in
your heart has the capability of coming into existence.
That is why we always talk about being positive, because positive thoughts attract positive results. You think of how to get something and suddenly you get to meet someone who helps you out effortlessly.
Anything worth doing, is worth doing well – Steve Jobs
For those of you who never procrastinate,
distract yourself or drag your feet when you
should be doing something important, this isn’t for you (the perfectionist I guess).
But for the rest of us humans, who work towards perfection and try to get the best and having library of motivational boosters to
move us on is really good.
To be honest, I believe the best way to stay motivated, is to organize your life so you don’t have to allow your plans fall through. How do I mean? The idea is that explicit Motivational techniques should be a backup, not
your regular routine. Which means you could use them occasionally. Therefore, work at getting motivated through these three techniques (which I guess you know).
Here are some things to consider in making those plans of yours flow more naturally. I call them the “PHB” techniques.
Nothing makes you exceptional as giving yourself to what you know how to do best.
Do things you have a passion for. We all have to do things we don’t want to (it kind of happens) But if
life has become a chronic source of dull chores, then you’ve got a big problem that needs fixing.
2. Habits. You can’t put everything on autopilot.
But I’ve found putting a few core habits in place creates a structure for the day. Waking
up at the same time, working at the same times and having a similar productive routine
makes things look easier.
With the name, it’s obvious to what this means. You have to try and keep all your tasks at hand in equilibrium– a state where everything is equal. Though
there are many factors that go into producing this state, having the right challenge level is a
big part. Find ways to tweak your tasks so they hover in that sweet spot between boredom and maddening frustration.
Stay motivated! Is there something I missed? How do you stay motivated, what inspires you too?

It’s another Monday; so many people hate this
day, about 85% of salary earners hate this day
because it comes with its own stress and
pressure. The question is what is the difference
between Pressure and Stress?
Stress is a word now commonly used to describe
both the events that are a source of pressure
and the subjective feelings associated with
external events and stimuli. The Health & Safety
Executive defines stress as ‘the adverse reaction
a person has to excessive pressure or other
types of demands placed upon them’. This
makes a distinction between ‘pressures’, which
can be a positive state if managed correctly, and
‘stress’ which can be detrimental to health.
Pressure on the other hand, is the part of the
job, we all know that, little pressure is ok to get
the task done with improved performance but
excessive pressure can lead to lot of problem
mentally and physically. Nowadays many people
think of ways to reduce pressure at work as
growing competition and business hierarchy are
major causes of pressure.
Therefore, the followings are ways to manage
• Take time before you react. Study any given
situation carefully, think about it and come up
with a plan. This is a better way to respond than
• Prioritize tasks; focus on tasks which are linked
to your most immediate objective.
• Direct your energy toward situations where you
can affect the outcome and don’t spend time
worrying about what you cannot change.
Successful people focus on tasks which they can
control and let go of the rest.
• Take the help of others. You can seek the
input of other people before reaching any
decision. You may also delegate some tasks to
others if you have a tight schedule. Decide which
tasks can be delegated to other people and do
• Learn how to deal with different kinds of
people at work – complainers, aggressive people
etc. Develop your listening skills in order to
interact better with people and pay attention to
improving your communication skills.
