Strengthen your motivation to improve your mind
Each of us has personal motivation, it is that inward power that pushes us to become a better person, work harder, and enjoy life. Motivation doesn't always happen on a daily basis, it takes the combination of desire and ambition to make it truly work. Highly motivated people often set personal goals for themselves that they must achieve in order to have a feeling of self worth. Many people have a desire to do something, but they lack the imitative to do it. They are held back by fear, doubt, and anxiety. Having motivation means you have a willingness to take action and do something, despite the consequences.
To improve our brain power, we need to strengthen our motivation. Motivation helps the brain to stay focused, achieve certain goals, and take action. When we strengthen our motivation, we have the energy, courage, and inner drive we need to find self-worth in our daily lives. Motivation helps us have a direction in life and we are not afraid of failure because we know the successes that will follow it someday.
Write down some of your life goals. Your motivation will strengthen if you have a vision of where you want to be in 1 year, 6 years, 30 years, etc. When you have a vision of where you want to be, you will have a stronger desire to work towards achieving it. This helps us to continue pushing ourselves to move forward and to see this vision someday become a reality.
As you write out your goals, you can apply motivation to each one of them. Some of your goals may include things like "I want to lose 10 pounds" or "I want to go back to school and finish my degree." Whatever your goals may be, motivation is already there. It is the reason why you wrote down the goals, now you just need to trust in your ability to achieve those goals and push yourself to achieve them.
There will be roadblocks along the way; this is a natural part of life. The important thing to remember is how you plan to deal with those roadblocks. If you let them overtake you, it will be hard to work towards your goals. Our brains work best if we can accomplish several little goals before a large goal. This is why it is important to use small daily and weekly goals before you reach the large goal. As you keep reaching the smaller goals, you will become more motivated to work harder to someday reach the bigger goals.
Having a lack of motivation comes from setting large expectations on ourselves. We cannot achieve the bigger goals because we don't believe in our ability and inner drive to become successful. Having motivation comes from pushing yourself to have it. For example, if there are 2 students in a class and one spends 15-30 minutes on their homework each day and the other does it right before class, which student will be successful on the test? The student that had the motivation to work hard each day or the student that procrastinated the material until the last second? Usually it's the student that took the time to motivate themselves to actually work hard each day, they were able to learn the material easily because they looked it daily and actually took the time to understand it.
When a person is lacking motivation, they have no enthusiasm to learn and grow. They do not have a zest for life and for ambition. Having motivation encourages us to live happier, healthier lives. Typically a person with motivation is happier, has more energy, and thinks of things in a positive manner.
