Motivation is at the root of true happiness no matter how you define your own, unique ‘happy’. However, your motivation has to be much more specific than simply wanting to be happy. The word motivation itself implies there is action in there someplace. You are motivated to take action to reach some goal which will ultimately lead you to greater happiness.
Look for a sense of purpose to drive sales motivation – if you have a direction and a focus, if you know which way to make the leap, then you will stand a better chance of doing well through sales motivation.
The ultra-successful do not concern themselves with things beyond their control. Understanding what is beyond your control, and letting go of the things that stretch beyond your reach is critical to managing productivity, stress, and fulfillment. Regardless of your reach, you will never be able to reach back in time. The past is beyond your control. You cannot change it, but you can learn from it.
I just tend to prefer a pound of perspiration and the increased probability of success. And of course, I write how to books and related non-fiction. So my worship of the muse is slightly skewed. But still, Follow me is necessary.
THAT’S the side of motivation you seldom hear about – the need to remove the demotivational factors in your life. Sometimes it’s physical factors – a person, your environment or your health. Most likely you already know how to plug those holes once you’ve identified them. Just as often it’s a mindset issue – your own way of looking at things can be demotivating you every single day.
People will not be motivated in their daily task if their basic needs are not satisfy. Their basic needs are not necessarily the potential better lifestyle or big bucks on some future date.
Some writers believe that the more effort they make, the more likely inspiration will strike and their writing will improve. Actually this practice can become harmful. Too much of the mental grind can actually result in messy writing and a lack of focus. Take a break. Find time for relaxation. Do something different that brings you peace. I cannot tell you exactly what this is since people have different ways of relaxation. Whether it be playing a game, gardening, reading a book or simply gazing out a window while drinking coffee, give yourself the mental break you need. Your writing will improve if you allow yourself a good balance of relaxation and peace.
We’re all beacons of inspiration. You don’t have to be a head of state or the CEO of a large corporation to be inspiring. You can do it right where you are whether you’re a salesperson, sales manager or in the mail room. Whatever your station in life, in your own way, be an inspiration to those around you. Be all you can be and help others do the same.
