Ok I decided to open up a new category here called “Ask Myrko”. This is where you can send me your questions and every Thursday I will pick one that I think is interesting for most people and answer it. I already got hundreds from you (from those of you who signed up on my newsletter […]
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?
In 13th century Scotland there was a freedom fighter named William Wallace.
In a time when most people in Scotland were willing to settle, Wallace wanted more for himself and for his people. Getting there was something that probably seemed impossible, to win freedom from a ruthless king probably seemed insurmountable.
Read in this inspiring post from Kimanzi Constable, how he turned his life around and stopped to settle for something that was below his real potential.
In this guest-post Jorge Blanco writes: “The very first time I found myself determined to achieve a goal was during my teenage years when I wanted to go to Japan and study Computer Science there.
It was the biggest dream for me at the time and I was able to achieve it.
But after a year, I suddenly realized I wasn’t feeling as elated as I imagined I would be. I felt lost and empty…”
Finally I’m writing about The Law of Attraction. In fact, I’ve written about it in many posts here, but I’ve never named it as such. But the key understandings that you are responsible for your state of mind and for what you create in your life are also at the core of the Law of Attraction.
The Law of Attraction states: You attract in your life what you think about most of the time. What you focus your attention on grows, and your energy and actions flow towards it. Or in other words: Like attracts Like.
For me the Law of Attraction was intuitively clear pretty early in my life, without labeling it as the Law of Attraction (or even “The Secret”). Some time in my teens I decided to “focus on what I want”. That was essential for me.
Self discipline is something you just can’t neglect if you want to succeed in any major venture in life. A very interesting thing to note is that while you can achieve any goal with nothing but only self discipline, you can hardly achieve anything at all without self discipline.
I love this definition of self discipline: “Self Discipline is taking action irrespective of your emotional state.” Let’s take a greater look at why self discipline is so important…
The time right now is among my personal most enjoyable times of the year. Between Christmas and New Year’s Day is the perfect time to really reflect back on the last 12 month and then go ahead and plan next year.
And in fact, if you haven’t done a yearly plan so far, I would highly recommend that you start doing this review & planning process now for this and the coming year. You will be amazed at what this reviewing & planning can do to your overall sense of direction and practical achievement. It will take under 1 hour and it will be way worth it.
For me, this process is one of the biggest sources for what I would call my personal successes. It is a 2 step process of I. Reviewing and II. Planning.
