How to Get Motivated

Whether a person succeeds, fails or leads depends upon this variable. Getting to know the intricacies of your own motivation can have lasting effects. By understanding and acting upon the things that motivate you one begins to understand what it means to live a healthy, happy life. This concept will be explored in the steps below.


    Be happy. A great deal of motivation comes from understanding one's state of happiness. However, happiness, like most other oh-so-important concepts in life, is a slippery concept. How would one go about changing how happy they are? Very simply put, happiness and control are causal, meaning that when you take away somebody's control, they are less happy. Logic would thus indicate that by giving yourself some control, you are generally happier, and more motivated to do something. It's the reason there are control freaks in the world, and it's the reason video games have become so popular. Some control-based activities are:

    Making Things Happen

    We are all given the tools, but it is up to us what we decide to build and how magnificent it will be.
    Steven Ferrel
    Goals are fantastic to have, but many times challenges surface that make it difficult for a goal to mature. Many may never start toward their goal because of doubt in their abilities. Some do not attempt the actions required to make their goals a reality. While others do not allow the right mental conditions to exist for fruition of their dreams.
    Those who do not have a strong belief in their abilities, usually have to see it first to believe it can happen. Many things were once invisible and started as a thought, as this article once was. We cannot see our thoughts this does not mean they do not exist. Electricity is invisible - it has no form - but it is very real as anyone who has felt the intense power of electrocution can attest. If you felt extreme pain when someone you deeply care about passed on, you have experienced the power of the invisible. It may manifest itself into tears or expressions of sadness, but it originated from within, that invisible place. What comes from within are the most wonderful and powerful forces of all. Our bodies have certain limitations, but our true inner self, has none. Open your mind to the possibilities of boundless dreams that all begins within you, where our true beauty resides. Until you go beyond the limitations of your form, you will not be able to live your life to its fullest potential and truly experience your dreams.

    Quotes that Hold the True Meaning of Education

    2. “The job of an educator is to teach students to see the vitality in themselves.” -- Joseph Campbell

    Eleven Hints for Life

    1. It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return.
    But what is more painful is to love someone and never
    find the courage to let that person know how you feel.

    2. A sad thing in life is when you meet someone who
    means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was
    never meant to be and you just have to let go.

    Friday, 22 November 2013

    Negative outlooks never have positive outcomes.


    You've got to take the good with the bad, smile with the sad, love what you've got, and remember what you had. Always forgive, but never forget. Learn from mistakes, but never regret.

    When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.

    Love is like modern technology. We often don't begin to understand how it works until it begins falling apart.

    We all have love in our hearts, we just have to find the right person to share it with...

      Motivation is central to creativity, productivity and happiness. Motivation is what causes us to act, and when we act, we create movement, growth and change, we feel involved, masterful and significant, we feel powerful through experiencing how we can change the world, and we create more of what we love in our lives. And all of this gives our lives purpose and happiness.

      10 Types of Demotivation And How To Get motivated Again

      Here are 10 different types of demotivation and the strategies that will help you to get motivated again:


      1.) You’re demotivated by fear

      When you’re afraid, even if you’re entering territory that you’ve chosen to move into, a part of yourself is determined to avoid going forward. Fear slows you down and makes you hesitant and careful, which can be beneficial to you, but sometimes your fears are based on your imagination rather than an accurate assessment of the risks in your reality. If your fear is big enough, even if you’re also excited to go forward, the part of you that wants to keep you safe can successfully prevent you from going forward into territory that’s both desirable and safe.
      How to get motivated again: To get motivated, you need to deal with your fear. Start by naming your fears so that they’re out in the open. Remember to say a gentle thank you to your fears – they’re trying to protect you after all. Then question your fears; “Why am I afraid of that happening?” “What are the chances that would really happen?” Some of your fears will slip away now.
      Look at the fears that are left. What are these fears telling you about the research you need to do, the gaps you need to fill and the risk management strategies you need to put in place? Honor that wisdom by building it into your plan. Finally, consider breaking the changes you’re wanting to make down into smaller steps and focus on just the next few small steps – this will calm your fears.

      What’s in a Kiss?

      “Kiss me and you will see how important I am,"
      Sylvia Plath wrote.
      The erotic kiss (as opposed to the kiss of respect, friendship, courtesy, or parent-child) is recognized in most cultures around the world. The vast majority of adults all over the globe have experienced the awkwardness, excitement, confusion and pleasure of it. But one must admit that on its face the practice of kissing is more than a bit strange. Why would the exchange of saliva and dinner salad remnants be considered a desirable event, a ritual of passion? Given that the erotic kiss is so common, it must play an important role in the dance of human sexuality. But what exactly is that role?

      The brain is wider than the sky
      Writing well before brain science discovered that our nervous systems have the potential to make trillions of synaptic connections, Dickinson talked about the power of human imagination.  In our minds, we can travel anywhere in the universe or beyond.  Each of our brains can explore anything and expand to our maximum potential through our thoughts alone.

      The Joy Of Meditation


      The Benefits Of Meditation

      To understand meditation through an experiment, take a camera and take two pictures. Hold your camera still and take the picture.
      Now, while shaking your camera take the second picture.
      The difference in clarity between the two pictures is the difference in clarity of a life with and without meditation.
      If you've ever dreamt of becoming superman as a child, practicing meditation is probably the closest thing possible to experiencing it as an adult. Developing a regular practice leads to the creation of a virtual bulletproof vest for our physical, mental, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual health.
      Meditation means different things to different people. There are dozens of types, styles, and schools of thoughts on meditation. There are many methods prescribed like Transcendental Meditation, Vipassana, and Zazen etc., to reach the state of meditation. Our intention in this Life School Message is not to compare different practices. What we'd like to do is to give you a glimpse into what benefits can arise as a result of meditation.

      Health is a Quality of the Whole Person - Mind, Body, & Spirit
      In modern Western society, we deeply value good health, yet we have created a society and way of living so out of balance that damage to our long-term health is the inevitable result. We rush around and push our bodies beyond their capacities. We ignore our bodies' messages of pain and fatigue until they turn into more serious medical problems. We seek quick fixes and ways to mask the symptoms so we can keep on going, not losing an ounce of productivity. It seems we have forgotten the wisdom of the ages that good health is not just the absence of disease, but involves healthy lifestyle, healthy mental attitude, and healthy ways of relating to all living beings and nature.

      Try This Six Tips On How To Use Charm To Succeed.

      don draper mad men
        Dress to impress.
      1. Dress to impress.
      People will judge you by your personal appearance when sizing you up, so it's good to have a sense of style and a reasonably polished exterior. Clean, pressed, fashionable clothes and good grooming will help people know that you care about the impression you make. Pay attention to the little details like well-kept shoes and cleanly manicured nails.
      Creep Factor:  Unless you work in couture, over-indulgence in obscure fashion will make people wonder if you can be trusted in a professional environment. Show personal style without looking like you are heading for a night of clubbing (except of course if you're in the clubbing biz.) Overindulgence in flashy, expensive labels for the sake of bragging can also make people feel uncomfortable. Make your outfits company and industry appropriate.
      2. Make eye contact.
      Most people don't trust others who can't look someone in the eye. Make an effort whenever someone is communicating with you to make a face-to-face connection. You may be busy in your office or on your computer, but it's easy enough to stop and look up at the person inquiring. You'll make him or her feel important and worthy, which will make you more likable.
      Creep Factor: Don't stare. When in conversation take a moment to break the eye contact and blink or look away briefly. Otherwise you'll come off as threatening and weird. Also be careful not to stare at someone from a distance.  They may the feel the vibe and others may notice you, which is sure to be talked about in the lunchroom.
      3. Smile.
      A grumpy, dour face does not charm people, except maybe on a bloodhound. Show a pleasant, animated expression when you communicate. People want to work with others who can demonstrate happiness and a love for life.
      Creep Factor: Don't over-animate your face or be disingenuous. If you're just not feeling good, either work on finding the joy in the day or keep your communication to a minimum. Fake smiles and exaggerated joy just comes off bizarre and phony.
      4. Shake hands firmly.
      People do respond well to physical contact when it is intentional and appropriate. That first handshake will make an impact, so if you are in the US, make it firm and direct. For international travelers, be aware that there are many cultural differences in the handshake and the responsibility is on the traveler not to offend. Occasional physical contact with colleagues — like a quick, light touch on the arm or shoulder — can be ok and sometimes endearing when kept within proper context and limits.
      Creep Factor: Too much touching or touching anywhere near sensitive areas will raise issues of confusion, awkwardness and potential sexual harassment concerns. People may not tell you when you cross the line, especially if you are their superior, but if you are paying attention you should sense they are uncomfortable. If unclear on someone's boundaries, err on the side of less physical contact in a work environment.
      5. Be a bit clever.
      People love to learn and laugh. So naturally, smart people who can entertain with humor and stories are very popular and can command a crowd. Expand your repertoire of knowledge and anecdotes so you can be interesting.  Pay attention to current events and look for the odd and funny in everyday life. Putting a smile on someone else's face is a gift that will not go unappreciated.
      Creep Factor: Leave the crass, mean and profane stories to a non-work environment. Here's a rule of thumb, if you wouldn't see the language or joke printed on your company website, then it probably isn't tasteful enough for your colleagues.
      6. Take a personal interest in others.
      People respect others who care enough to show sincere interest in people's lives. Asking someone about his or her interests will make him or her feel important and show you to be selfless and gracious. It will also make them more interested in learning about you.
      Creep Factor: Give people their personal space both physically and emotionally. Asking too many intimate questions, stalking their personal pages or digging into their desk or journals is considered invasive and threatening. Use this simple guideline, don't go where you haven't been specifically invited.

      Confidence Is The New Sexy

      sexy young woman legs
      That tiny black dress, heels and make-up can make you feel a little more sexy, but the sexiest thing about you doesn't have a color or a shape. You can't touch it, but you sure can feel it ... it's self-confidence.
      Being comfortable with who you are is ultimately what's behind this new movement that redefines sexy from appearance to inner strength. It's no longer about what others think of you or trying to live up to a man's or media images of beauty, it's what you think of yourself that makes you sexy. Are you strong enough to be sexy?
      The Strength to Be Confident
      Beauty is far beyond skin deep. There are "beautiful" women who think negatively about their appearance, and women who some might say are not as "beautiful," yet they exude confidence and self-acceptance. That inner-strength to believe in who you are, own your body and keep in your mind a positive view of who you are is the strength you have to build to be sexy.
      That mental toughness is only built through believing your own hype. If you don't create hype for yourself, you have nothing to believe in but what others think of you. Change that today by coming up with your own self-confident mantra. Tyra Banks touts fierceness; Kimora Lee touts fabulosity; but what do you call that "it factor" that makes you feel confident? Find out, and chase after it, so that you become better at pumping your own self up.
      The Strength to Define Your Beauty
      Researchers know it. I'm a man and I know it. And you know it too. Women are hard on other women. And even when they're not, the other women may think they are. That all adds up to this self-consciousness about appearance that can take away from your sexy. That's why it's so important that a woman defines what she thinks is "beautiful."
      Trying to please others or live up to others' expectations is not sexy. To build strength to define your own beauty, consider your body in your own definition of sexy. Try to forget what your mother, boyfriend, friends or siblings may have told you about what's good, bad or ugly about your body.

      9 Characteristics Of Truly Confident People

      confidence by the other Martin Taylor via Compfight

      First things first: 
      Confidence is not bravado, or swagger, or an overt pretense of bravery. Confidence is not some bold or brash air of self-belief directed at others. Confidence is quiet: It’s a natural expression of ability, expertise, and self-regard.

      1. They take a stand not because they think they are always right… but because they are not afraid to be wrong.
      Cocky and conceited people tend to take a position and then proclaim, bluster, and totally disregard differing opinions or points of view. They know they’re right — and they want (actually they need) you to know it too.
      Their behavior isn’t a sign of confidence, though; it’s the hallmark of an intellectual bully.
      Truly confident people don’t mind being proven wrong. They feel finding out what is right is a lot more important than being right. And when they’re wrong, they’re secure enough to back down graciously.
      Truly confident people often admit they’re wrong or don’t have all the answers; intellectual bullies never do.
      2. They listen 10 times more than they speak.
      Bragging is a mask for insecurity. Truly confident people are quiet and unassuming. They already know what they think; they want to know what you think.
      So they ask open-ended questions that give other people the freedom to be thoughtful and introspective: They ask what you do, how you do it, what you like about it, what you learned from it… and what they should do if they find themselves in a similar situation.
      Truly confident people realize they know a lot, but they wish they knew more… and they know the only way to learn more is to listen more.
      3. They duck the spotlight so it shines on others.
      Perhaps it’s true they did the bulk of the work. Perhaps they really did overcome the major obstacles. Perhaps it’s true they turned a collection of disparate individuals into an incredibly high performance team.
      Truly confident people don’t care – at least they don’t show it. (Inside they’re proud, as well they should be.) Truly confident people don’t need the glory; they know what they’ve achieved.
      They don’t need the validation of others, because true validation comes from within.
      So they stand back and celebrate their accomplishments through others. They stand back and let others shine – a confidence boost that helps those people become truly confident, too.
      4. They freely ask for help.
      Many people feel asking for help is a sign of weakness; implicit in the request is a lack of knowledge, skill, or experience.
      Confident people are secure enough to admit a weakness. So they often ask others for help, not only because they are secure enough to admit they need help but also because they know that when they seek help they pay the person they ask a huge compliment.
      Saying, “Can you help me?” shows tremendous respect for that individual’s expertise and judgment. Otherwise you wouldn't ask.
      5. They think, “Why not me?”
      Many people feel they have to wait: To be promoted, to be hired, to be selected, to be chosen... like the old Hollywood cliché, to somehow be discovered.
      Truly confident people know that access is almost universal. They can connect with almost anyone through social media. (Everyone you know knows someone you should know.) They know they can attract their own funding, create their own products, build their own relationships and networks, choose their own path — they can choose to follow whatever course they wish.
      And very quietly, without calling attention to themselves, they go out and do it.
      6. They don't put down other people.
      Generally speaking, the people who like to gossip, who like to speak badly of others, do so because they hope by comparison to make themselves look better.
      The only comparison a truly confident person makes is to the person she was yesterday — and to the person she hopes to someday become.
      7. They aren’t afraid to look silly…
      Running around in your underwear is certainly taking it to extremes… but when you’re truly confident, you don’t mind occasionally being in a situation where you aren't at your best.
      (And oddly enough, people tend to respect you more when you do — not less.)
      8. … And they own their mistakes.
      Insecurity tends to breed artificiality; confidence breeds sincerity and honesty.
      That’s why truly confident people admit their mistakes. They dine out on their screw-ups. They don’t mind serving as a cautionary tale. They don’t mind being a source of laughter — for others and for themselves.
      When you’re truly confident, you don’t mind occasionally “looking bad.” You realize that that when you’re genuine and unpretentious, people don’t laugh at you.
      They laugh with you.
      9. They only seek approval from the people who really matter.
      You say you have 10,000 Twitter followers? Swell. 20,000 Facebook friends? Cool. A professional and social network of hundreds or even thousands? That’s great.
      But that also pales in comparison to earning the trust and respect of the few people in your life that truly matter.
      When we earn their trust and respect, no matter where we go or what we try, we do it with true confidence — because we know the people who truly matter the most are truly behind us.

      How To Identify Your Conversational Blind Spots

      Successful entrepreneurs tend to be great talkers. They have to be. That's because they continually pitch their visions, strategies, products, and services to investors, banks, employees, customers, clients, and partners.
