Are you looking to get motivated again to get your ohh so important goal done? But somehow it feels so difficult to get your butt up to at least just one tiny little step forward, right?
It’s just not happening…
And how can you fix this and get your motivation up when you need it? Like… right now?
Today I want to share a very simple, yet very critical time-management skill that usually is underestimated.
But not having this skill can seriously sabotage your best efforts to get things done and to move towards your goals in life.
The skill I’m talking about is to say no — primarily in your mind — to everything that is not what you really want.
Time is one of the most valuable resources you have. How and where you spend your time determines the quality of your life. And you need to get control over your time.
Especially now as I’m personally becoming a father of two baby-girls, I have to rethink how I spend the very little time I have left for me most effectively.
It can be done. Because everybody on the planet has the same amount time. And there are people who get their stuff done.
The first thing you have to realize is this…
Sometimes things just don’t go as you’d wish them to go. One adversity after another sweeps into your life like waves on a shore coming against you. Everything seems to have come together in a little conspiracy. Life sucks.
If such a series of adversities happens, your life can get really overwhelming and questions like “Why is this happening to me?” or “What I have done to deserve this?” pop up in the mind. But those questions are not really helping, especially not in that state of overwhelm, anger, frustration or even depression…
So what can you do inside and out to cope?
It’s a very common thing: You set out some nice plans and started very motivated with something that seemed so important to you at the time. But then, somehow, it wears off. The initial drive is gone, things seem to be tough again, it’s no fun anymore. And somehow it doesn’t look so interesting anymore, anyway. What happened? The simple answer: You didn’t follow through. But why?
For me personally clarity is one of these qualities I constantly strive for. And if you are anything like me you know that a clear mind is not only the best tool you can have to work with, but also the basis for living a balanced, conscious life. Clarity comes when we think simple, yet intelligent and powerful, and are aware of what is really important to us and let go of all the rest. To reach total clarity in your mind you can use different techniques.
Asking the right question could be the critical thing you are missing on your own journey of personal growth. I’m constantly astonished about the kind of breakthrough in thinking that asking the right questions can have. The process of thinking is often the process of asking and answering questions in our head. Especially when you do self-reflection, asking questions is the method to get clarity and to make personal progress.
