One Minute Motivator # 437

Try setting a really tight deadline in order to have a breakthrough.

You force yourself to tap into sources you don’t normally use.

Next time you start a project, set a really tight deadline for it and see what happens. You may find you did not to have all the elements of the job you planned for, you may think of shortcuts you didn’t think of before, you may take calculated risks that you wouldn’t have before and so on. Whatever happens will happen sooner than it would have otherwise and this gives you time to fix things that went wrong or savor the speed in which you got the job done.

Ready to try a tight deadline?

Two words that will ruin your life.

“Someday” and “but”.

If you use the word “someday” to put things off you are creating a serious problem for yourself. To be successful you need action and “someday” postpones it. Worse yet is the fact it makes it look like you will do something when odds are you won’t. The same goes for “but”, because you generally use it to make an exception to something that you should be doing. You tie some excuse to the word “but” that seem to let you off the hook. Once again no action is taken.

How about more “right now” and “for sure” in your life?

Transfer a chore into a choice if you want success.

This will give you a sense of control and improve your morale.

Not everything you do on the road to success is fun. Some of it is pretty boring and you want to quit. If you find a way to make some aspect of what you must do into a choice you will trigger the motivation to keep at it. The key is to generate a feeling of control.

Find an answer to the question “what choice do I have?”

What have you done today that is a positive step towards your dreams?

What have you done today that is DIFFERENT than yesterday?

Chances are yesterday was not a great day in terms of moving towards your dreams. But today is a new day and you must do things differently if you are to attain your goals. You just can’t keep going along talking about your goals without taking any real action. Days slip into weeks and then years. At some point you look back and wonder where it all went. It is all here today. You still have a chance to do something. Anything. Just take a positive step towards your dream and you will be on your way.

Take that step now.

What is the one thing standing between you and success?

Resistance.

Whenever we start to take a step towards our goals, resistance shows up. Resistance is unique in that it immediately engages the fight-or-flight mechanism, and you never know how you are going to react until you are confronted with it. The key to fighting resistance is to reconize it when it pops up as it takes many different forms. Then make yourself believe that what you want to accomplish is bigger, way bigger, than what stands in your way.

Resistance is waiting for you, do you know what to do?

Having a routine is better than having goals.

Having a routine that is built around your goals allows you to work on your goals without thinking about them.

Goals require you to think about taking action, fitting those actions into your daily life and lots of things that take effort and thought. Routines are just that, routine. If you set up things that move your towards your goal and form a routine around them, you put those things on auto pilot. You will move towards your goals almost without effort.

What goals can you turn into a routine today?

Don’t die wondering.

You are full of questions about what it would be like to do certain things. Do them and find out.

We don’t want to feel regrets because we failed to heed our ambitions. You will be inspired and energized even if you try something and it fails. It’s wondering whether we should or shouldn’t do something that leaves us feeling incomplete.

Go out and live!

How to be happy doing a job you hate.

Here is how to handle it when life throws you jobs you must do even though you hate them.

First get the biggest job you hate out of the way first, this is when you have the most inner fortitude and the rest of the tasks look easy after that. Next recognize it is a means to an end, know how the job fits in with your plans, even if it is not apparent at first. Lastly practice gratitude. Focus on the good things in your life and don’t dwell on the crap work.

Try this advice out on a job you have been putting off and see how it goes.

Refuse to wait around.

Losers sit and wait for inspiration; winners get up and go to work.

You must challenge yourself to take action sooner rather than later. The minute you start taking action you begin getting valuable feedback that ultimately helps you refine your original idea. That way you can move forward with a more informed and educated outlook. Things will never be perfect, so don’t waste time waiting for it.

What can you get started on right now?

You have not been sent here in a test or trial.

Everything counts.

What you do with your life matters. It matters to you, it matters to others, it matters to the whole world and what comes after. You need to take life seriously and step up to your responsibilities.

Your life is not a drill, make something meaningful happen today.
