A process for motivating you to take action
As human beings, we are motivated to take actions if the result is going to make a major positive difference to ourselves. We also take actions when we scared that not taking action will put us in a very bad position. Hence, both positive and negative outcomes can be amazing triggers. In the exercise below, we will use these two triggers to push ourselves to take actions.
So Let’s do this amazing exercise together.
Stage 1: Think of a time in the past when you were scared to take action and you took action and the end result was amazing. Feel the emotions again. Possible examples are major events like having a child, learning to drive or starting a new business. Awaken the inner hero in you. We have all achieved great things in the past and reliving them can be an energy booster to motivate us again.
Stage 2: Think about something you need to do. Write it down. Think about three best possible outcomes if you took action. Write them down. Feel the outcomes. How awesome you’d feel if you really met your goals, Isn’t it? Let these emotions become a part of you and make you want the goal you have set more and more. You really want to feel these emotions and you are going to do everything to get them.
Stage 3: Think about the 3 worst things that can happen if you don’t take action. Feel those outcomes again. You really don’t want to live those. Don’t you? Therefore, you need to take action so that you don’t have to live through those.
