The Magic of Motivational Thinking

The magic of motivational thinking can completely transform your life, bring in new opportunities, and new ways of thinking. The magic lies in how your thoughts can turn dreams into reality, but it takes more than a little day dreaming to make them come true. Motivational thinking is made up of equal parts willpower, discipline, and courage to go after your dreams.

Motivational thinking does not happen overnight, but it can be learned with enough determination and hunger. The problem for most people is that they don’t do what it takes to accomplish their goals. To achieve meaningful accomplishments in life, you have to think big. You have to put in the effort and be consistent.

Getting what you want out of life usually involves doing things you are not going to want to do. To get into the mindset of thinking motivationally, you have to stretch your mind to overcome uncomfortable situations and challenging goals.

The magic of motivational thinking requires that do things you aren’t going to want to do, and probably many of them. You’re going to be highly uncomfortable circumstances. The point is that you have to grow and learn, stretching your mind and/or body into what you want it to be. While the concept is simple (though unpleasant) to understand, it isn’t easy to do. However, once you are mentally conditioned to think in with a highly motivational mindset, the possibilities for your life are limitless.

The magic of motivational thinking is what helps you do it. Here are a few things to keep in mind to strengthen your capacity for motivational thinking.


How Does Motivational Thinking Work?

Motivation is a kind of energy that helps you focus on getting what you want out of life. It’s likely to be a long road, but when you get what you want, you’ll be more satisfied and happier than you imagined possible.

The point is that you have to go for it, regardless of what ‘it’ is. You’re going down a path unknown to you, which brings up scary questions, but that doesn’t mean you can’t stay positive, focus on the results you want, and strive for success every day.

 

Your Thoughts Create Reality

Take note of how your mind speaks to itself. Harnessing the magic of motivational thinking involves paying close attention with how your mind speaks to itself. Most people tend to fall into negative communication loops of self-doubt and negative thinking which can inhibit productivity and prevent goals from being achieved.

Keep Track of Your Goals

It’s hard to stay motivated when we don’t hold ourselves accountable for completing our dreams and aspirations. It can be difficult to build a positive momentum of success when we lose sight of our goals. To strengthen our capacity to stay motivated and engaged, we must learn to stay on top of our accomplishments, work tirelessly to complete them, and celebrate our successes.

 

The magic of motivational thinking conditions us to push forward in order to overcome obstacles in our lives. It is an inevitable fact that we are bound to face difficulties that will challenge our spirits, but the magic of motivational thinking reminds us to face each challenge with a positive mental attitude and an organized mind.

There is a lot of information out there about the lack of apparent motivation this group exhibit in their professional careers.

    An effective motivator for Millennials is to have a clear picture of what they want to achieve in a particular job, then create that opportunity. Coaching and mentoring can be outstanding tools to achieve this motivation.

  • Ask for Opinions and Ideas

  • Create a challenge

    Learning, trying new ideas, and thinking outside of the box are all seen as critical motivational tips that will help millennials succeed in their careers. As a group, they are unmotivated in careers by predictable, boring and repetitive jobs.

 

  • Personal Connections 

    Building-ConnectionsMillennials are motivated by a personal connection with their company and not just a paycheck or an opportunity for promotion. Building in time to connect on a personal and not just a corporate level is essential to stay motivated and interested.

 

 

 

  • Build in professional development

Companies that recognize this can provide the training and growth opportunities their Millennial employees are looking for.

 

 

  • Look for workplace flexibility

    Building in remote work opportunities and not having rigid structures around office hours, when possible, is an effective motivator for Millennials.

Of course, as with all people, the feeling of accomplishing something in their career is another important factor. Goal setting opportunities, support in achieving those goals and having work that is relevant and meaningful is always important for the Millennial employee.

  1. Find a Goal Buddy

Sometimes reaching your goals is something that is better when done with a buddy. You can find a goal buddy that has the same goals so you can both encourage and support one another. This would work the same as having a diet and exercise buddy that works out with you while you both follow a healthy diet. A goal buddy can also help when it comes to making better work/personal choices, allowing you to retain your focus and accomplish your goals.

 

  1. Enjoy What You Are Doing

In order to stay motivated you need to find pleasure in what you are doing. If you have tasks that need to be completed to reach your goals, and you do not like them, it can be very difficult to force yourself to even start them. If it seems like hard work, you may want to avoid it. Although it might be true, the key to accomplishing tasks you do not like is to make them pleasurable or fun. Try to find ways to change your perspective on these daunting tasks and you will find it much easier and more enjoyable t complete them. Either way, fun or daunting, you will have to get them done.

 

  1. Break Larger Goals into Smaller Goals

Sometimes a single goal can seem like it is quite large. In order to reach a larger goal without feeling overwhelmed, consider breaking it into smaller goals. If you do not break up larger goals, you end up procrastinating and eventually giving up on the entire goal that could change your life for the better.

 

  1. Keep Track of Your Progress

A great way to make sure you are aware of how much you have accomplished is to track your progress. You can track each goal and keep a running tally on your progress so you can physically see how your hard work and determination are paying off. This type of chart will help you remain diligent by offering you a visual that gives you the opportunity to mark your goal reaching abilities.

 

  1. Hold Back

Sometimes you may feel like you need to work on a new goal and you do not want to focus on anything else because you are excited. Enthusiasm can be so strong that you are not able to define boundaries. But everyone has limitations. Hold back and pace yourself so you can continue to grow and maintain a healthy level of self-motivation without burning out.

We hope you take time today and this week to employ these 5 motivational tips and Ideas. They can make a difference if you take them seriously.
