One Minute Motivator # 441

Your image of the future is what guides your current actions.

Having a positive image of the future will cause you to take positive actions.

Few things kill energy and ambition faster than having a negative view of the future. I mean what is the use if it is not going to make any difference? On the other hand if you think the future is going to be good you will fill with energy and ambition. So if you want to get ahead, it only makes sense to adopt a positive attitude.

How does the future look to you?

Are you focusing on what is necessary or what is possible?

You are probably surprised to find out you have that choice.

Most people keep themselves so busy just covering the basics and operating out of fear that they never look up to see the possible. And yet the possible is right there for the taking. All it takes is a shift in focus. Take a break from what you have always done and look at what you could do instead.

Where are you looking right now?

It is always sunny above the clouds.

If you look above the day to day irritations and setbacks, you will see the sun or possibilities for you.

All that day to day stuff keeps pulling our focus down. We lose sight of our goals. As hard as it is to do, if you step back and remember why we are involved in this stuff and where it is supposed to lead, your focus will change. Things fall into perspective and our energy and morale improves. Life is fun again.

Put on your sunglasses and let the good life in.

Here is how to keep other people from pulling you down.

The sad truth is that most of the people around you want you to fail.

They may not even know it but most people will throw roadblocks in front of your efforts to succeed. You can’t control them but you can control how you respond. You have to keep your self confidence up through the use of affirmations and taking positive action. You deserve to be happy and successful. Keep a list of your past accomplishments, even if they are small. Remember them when the Nay Sayers come around and keep on keeping on.

Stay strong!

Stop saying you just don’t have what it takes and start practicing.

Saying you just don’t have the right genes to do something may fool some people but you know the truth is that you are not putting in the effort.

Genetics play a part, but most of what holds us back is our lack of commitment to practicing until we gain mastery. Maybe you won’t be the best in your field, but I bet you can be a contender. Just committing to making more effort will improve your performance. And once you really put your heart into it, the results will amaze you.

Stop blaming your genes and give it a shot.

It will be better than you imagined.

Most people overestimate how bad things will be and underestimate how good things will be.

When you think about things move your estimated outcome up a notch. Odds are you are being too pessimistic about outcomes. You miss opportunities because you do not pursue things that appear too hard. Or you don’t realize how good something can be. Either way your natural pessimism holds you back.

Ready to find out how good something really is?

Some people find fault like there is a reward for it.

Some people will go to extraordinary means to find problems and involve you in them.

We just can’t avoid the fact that some people are just extreme pessimists. But we can avoid getting tangled up with them. Most of the time it is the same people in our lives that bring problems to us. They try to rope you into their mess and pull you down. Avoid these people at all costs, they can only hurt you. And when you sense a new contact is heading in this direction, start to distance yourself right away.

Hide, the pessimists are coming.

Why people not as smart as you do better than you.

It happens because those people focus on their wins instead of their loses.

Successful people are happier than non-successful people but it is because they don’t wait to win in order to be happy. They focus on the good in every outcome. Research shows, that those who are happiest are the most successful. When you are happy, success comes easier. You are more creative and more resilient. You think bigger, are more hopeful and optimistic. These are the keys to success.

What just happened that you could find the good in?

Plan for what will go right before you plan for what can go wrong.

Planning for what can go wrong puts a negative spin on a project and holds back its potential.

Sure planning for what can go wrong can be helpful. But not until you have worked out what can go right. You want the focus to be positive for as long as you can. Once you shift to negative planning, your project loses its momentum and the focus is on protection rather than growth.

What can you turn your positive focus on today?

Dial your expectations down a notch to increase your happiness.

Advising you to have high expectations is a basic tenet of motivational speakers, but you need to apply some judgment to that idea.

If your expectations are too high, you will probably experience nothing but disappointment on a regular basis. Once this happens you lose your motivation and dump the whole “success” thing. You have to feel your way around the expectations you set up and see how you can handle them. If you find a high level of frustration and your happiness level tanking, it is time to lower your expectation a notch and see how you feel.

Don’t be afraid to lower your expectations, you are just managing them for the best results.
