Motivation can be a consequence of good planning rather than intense emotion.It is the difference between ‘work smart’ and ‘work hard’ respectively.
When your motivation is dependent on your emotion,and as we know our emotions are never constant,sometimes we get either a fleeting moment or short-term motivation boost,or else a severe blow due to negative or overwhelming emotion.
When you plan out your agenda,you have with you a long-term,step-by-step procedure to follow.With every step you take,you reinforce a positive feedback loop of motivation – you undertake a simple task,you attain some success and that motivates you to move onto the next step.
Emotions and feelings are exhaustible resource.Even the right feeling is hard to come by when you are about to start working on a new goal.They are good enough to help you out in short-run,but in the long-run,planning plays a better role.
Planning is a mix of various objective tasks.It allows you to experience a mental reward every-time you complete a step.It is like leveling-up in a game when you complete a certain number of quests.
Being completely objective can result in lack of commitment,and being completely subjective can result in lack of consistency.You need both in moderation together to overcome the odds and obstacles hindering your progress.
Criticism is not one’s pitfall.It is a tool to shape a path towards the ultimate glory.
Don’t think twice.You already invested a lot of time when you were thinking the first time.The second time will just exhaust your mental faculty and make yourself doubt you.Not to say you don’t need to proofread.And not to say haste cannot be a waste.If you made a decision first time with every resource available,then that was the best decision.Our resources keep on improving so it may feel like you made a wrong decision when in fact you made the best decisions under the given situation.It’s the doubt in you that kills future creativity.Doubt things around you to update your thinking.
I have learned more from my mistakes and that of the others than any other sources of learning and teaching.Doing something the wrong way sometimes sets us on the right way.When we understand what is bad and harmful,we pick out and implement what is good and virtuous.That’s why our evil past and deeds shouldn’t be hidden.They should serve as a reminder of our atrocities and downfalls to teach the future the value of peace and freedom they hold.To teach them greed and divisions will just harm oneself and we should all strive for unity and love.Acceptance is the key not ignorance.Because ignorance of both the good and bad has its own dire consequences.It is only sensible to teach the future generations about our mistakes so that they don’t go through what we have gone through again.Allow them to learn,make their own mistakes,learn again and pass on all the combined knowledge and experience to repeat the cycle.Our failure today will set the path to success tomorrow.
Failure is not a bad thing.Failure makes you hungry.Failure motivates you to achieve high goals by breaking the barriers of highest records.That’s how new records are made right? You won’t work towards something unless driven by motivation.And the more you are beat down,the more motivated you need to become in order to achieve your dream.This can backfire though.Experiencing downfall over and over again can crush one’s willpower.They may not want to get up again because suffering feels more easier than trying.It feels easier to let go than to go on.But you need to remember that you hold the trigger.Whether your attempts fire ahead towards the goal or backfire on you – depends on you.You invented the weapon i.e. your plan.You need to find the right way to execute it.Trial and error will bring either of the two options – either failure or success.Just because you are facing failure over and over doesn’t mean you are taking a step back.In fact,every time you try a new approach you increase your chances of success.The more you try,the more miniscule your failure becomes,bringing you closer to your goal.It’s simple math logically.But a harsh reality.And that is the making of a beautiful future.
The next generation will always surpass the previous generation (isn’t that the point of evolution)? But how much better they become than us depends on us.A tiny fraction or a vast mile.Place yourself in their shoes and ask yourself “Do I wish that my previous generation worked hard more or put in more energy to bring me more knowledge and more happiness in life? To make world a better place for all for good?” I certainly feel that way.Do you?
Ideas are just like living things.They only thrive when they strive.Confine them and they will waste away.
You learn from every person.No person is ever counterproductive to your cause.You learn to be aware about the world from the great people and you learn to be ignorant to critical matters from the naive people.What you choose in the end changes your life forever.Like a drop of water that sends a ripple far out throughout the lake.
Human is the only animal who craves more than needed.Greed and jealousy has advanced us in all aspects of life; but it has also taken away the value of and respect for moderation from us at the expense of enmity and hatred within the species.
Self-realization is the most powerful motivator in the world.And it can only be achieved by experiencing loss.It is a high price to pay because we don’t want to experience pain.But unless we fail,we don’t change.
