Simple Techniques From Experts That Make Dreams Into Reality


Self Motivation Secrets

Self-Motivation is a skill and like all skills, practice makes perfect.  Some people just simply "cannot" get a task done because they don't feel motivated to do it.  Now that italicized word "feel" is the most powerful motivator there is.  The bad part is we experience different feelings all the time and those feelings might not coincide with the task you want to get done.  But here's the good news.  You can CREATE a feeling that will influence you in getting that specific task done!  So, how do you create it?  Well here's some motivational techniques that I use to get tasks done.  And since it was well written in an article already, I decided to just present the article in its entirety.  Here they are:

Self Motivation Secrets
By Steven Gillman

We all have a lack of self motivation at times. We can learn a hundred ways to improve our lives, but then hesitate to act. Something less important catches our attention, or we just don't feel like doing what we need to do. Even a person who is normally highly motivated can sometimes have a hard time getting started on an important task.

Is there a solution? There are probably dozens of them. Below are six of the best self motivation techniques that consistently work when used. Try them all, but if you find even one or two here that work for you, you'll be on your way.

Self Motivation Techniques That Work

1. Talk to get motivated. One of my favorite ways to create energy and motivation is to talk. Once I tell my wife about the article I'm going to write, I'm out of my slump and back at the keyboard. For less inspiring tasks, talk about the larger goals it will help you achieve.

2. Stimulate your desire. Seeing their potential future motivates many to sign up for get-rich-quick plans. The really good salesmen can put you in your imagined dream home in minutes, and make you feel motivated to do anything to make it real. Learn to be your own salesman.

3. Stimulate your pain. One Neuro-Linguistic Programming technique is to mentally link pain with not acting. It is like when finally stop hitting that snooze button on the alarm, and get up because you think you might lose your job. Just imagine any bad consequences that may occur if you don't do what you need to do.

4. Find a true interest. If you have no interest in what you are doing, it might mean you need to do something else. If it's just a task you dislike, but it needs to be done, relate it clearly in your mind to the greater goal. I don't like to drive, but I don't have a motivation problem when I'm driving to the mountains for a vacation.

5. Boost your energy. You need energy for self motivation. Coffee may help for a while, if caffeine doesn't create other problems for you. Exercising and sleeping well help too. Yo should also watch out for sugary foods. The "sugar blues"kill motivation. Once you find energy boosters that work for you, make a list and keep it handy for future use.

6. Take any small step. I've found if I commit to raking up one bag of leaves, I soon want to finish all the yard work. Taking any small step towards your goals is a great self motivation technique. To make this even easier, break larger goals down into small steps.

Motivation techniques really do work, but don't ask me how to get motivated to use them. In any case, you were motivated enough to read this far, so you'll be fine. Oh, and humor is number seven. A good laugh can overcome that feeling of being overwhelmed that sucks away self motivation.

The Power of Feeling Good

by song chengxiang

All right reserved

Today I am going to share a powerful lesson that you can
use to immediately achieve any success you want in your
life. And I promise you that if you do what I suggest you
do, your success is guaranteed.

You will have everything you want in your life and enjoy
the total fulfillment that you deserve. Remember this…
there is no limit to what you can have, be and do. Every
thing you can imagine, you can achieve. And you are going
to find out how to do it now...

Feeling excited? Let’s play a “what if” game. What if you
could ask 100 of the most successful people in the world
whether there was a single magic secret to success? What if
they told you there was? What if they all gave you the same
answer? Are you willing to do what they suggest you do?

Well I don't know what they will tell you, but I do know,
from years of studying the most successful people, that
there is one single most important factor that contributes
to more of their success than any other factors combined,
and anyone can use it to achieve his success no matter who
he is, or what his current conditions are.

You must be eager to know what this secret is. Let me tell
you now.

Listen Up!

The single most important factor for successful people is
simply feeling good.

If success is really that simple, then why are so many
people struggling?

That is a good question. We have been taught that in order
to achieve something, we have to suffer first. It has been
said, no pain no gain. But I tell you this ...That is

Look at the life of a highly successful person. Is he
suffering, is he struggling? If he is, then I can assure
you that he is not successful in the area that he is
struggling against. He may look successful in a certain
area, but very unsuccessful in others. Have you ever seen a
multimillionaire who is suffering from bad health? Why does
that happen? He has all the money he needs to hire the best
doctors in the world, why is he still suffering from ill

Here is what‘s really happening…

He is highly successful financially, because he feels
really good about himself in the financial area; he is
unsuccessful physically, because he feels bad about his

The point I want to make is this. If you notice someone who
is extremely successful in one area, then you will be
certain to notice he feels great about himself in that
area. He has been conditioned to feel good in that area,
just like most people have been conditioned to struggle in
some areas of life.

If you are still not convinced, perhaps you can think of it
this way. How do you define success? It is certainly not
just about setting a goal and achieving it. That is
important, but it’s only part of the story. Success in my
definition and in most successful people's definition is
about enjoying a state of well-being in every moment of our
existence. It all comes down to a state of feeling good.
You may not agree with me, you may consider success as
having a million dollars in your bank account; you may
consider success as being famous as a public figure. Then
let me ask you a question: “why do you want a million
dollars?”, or “why do you want to be a famous person?” If
you think hard about this question, you will find that all
you want is simply to feel good.

Here is the big mistake that most people make. They think
they are going to be happy once they get that million
dollars, they think they will be happy once they become a
superstar. But when they reach that goal, they feel a
moment of excitement, and finally they realize that that is
all there is. And then they set a higher goal, and wish
they will be happy once they reach that goal. They will
never be happy as long as they don’t change their approach.

Then what is the right approach?

Since your ultimate goal is to feel good, then why not
choose to feel good right now? How do you do that? It is
simply by choosing to feel good at this moment. It is as
simple as that. People have spent great amounts of money
searching for techniques and strategies to make them
successful, but they forget that the most powerful tool is
the most fundamental; it is simply feeling good.

You may say "it is easier said than done, how can I feel
good if I am broke?" If that is how you think, here is my
answer to you... There are only two kinds of feeling we
experience every day. One is feeling good, and one is
feeling bad.

Good feelings send a powerful signal to the universe, and
through the law of attraction, you will attract people,
circumstances and events to match your state of feeling
good. Bad feelings also send a powerful signal to the
universe to bring back people, circumstances and events to
match your state of feeling bad.

Have you seen that?

Feelings are the causes, conditions are the effects.

You cannot get away from being broke if you are feeling
bad. You only reinforce the cause.

So begin to feel good one way or another, no matter what
conditions you are in.

At the moment you choose to feel good, amazing things will

If you don't believe me, try it. You have nothing to lose.

How To Get Through Work EASILY And Effectively

Is work tough to get through because...well... you basically hate your job? Or, are you just having a tough day at work? Either case, it is easy to get through work days like this. And when I say easy, it just takes a few seconds to INSTANTLY change your attitude/emotion, and therefore, your performance.  This technique has been so effective for me that it worked for over 15 years (it actually kept me at a job that was OK but not my ideal way of earning money) and I still continue to use it today. Here's how to get through work on those tough days.

It just takes ONE thought that changes everything. This thought is unique to you and only you because only you know what will make you happy (thus, change your mood). And the best part is that that thing can be still manifesting.  In other words even though it hasn't happened yet, you can still experience the "high."

The above video makes the exact point about how WE create our emotions. Athletes and other professionals pay big money to psychologists to learn techniques like this.  When you want to perform your best to get the outcome you want, no matter what circumstances pop up, it's techniques like this that can influence your results tremendously. 

You see, when we experience different moods, it's because we had or have a specific thought in mind. That thought could have been spurred on by an external element, i.e. TV show, music, particular scent, someone giving you something, etc. OR it could be one that you just created in your head! That's right, you can CREATE whatever thought that will make you hopeful, optimistic, or just plain happy.

Here's an experiment to prove my point. Remember earlier when I mentioned that your thought does not even have to come true? In other words, you don't have to have your desire fulfilled in order to experience the "high." FYI: If you have an insatiable desire for something, you WILL get it. It's just a matter of time ("The Secret" made this well known). Anyway, back to my experiment. Since a lot of folks could use extra money right now, I will use it as an example. If you were notified that a long time friend has left you $1.5 million dollars (because of your gracious treatment when they were alive) but you will not get any money for about 6 months because of all the legal work that must be completed, I bet your attitude towards your work, family, and life in general will change INSTANTLY. I mean, now you know you will not have to work 40 hours a week and deal with unreasonable customers for the "rest of your life," you will be able to spend more time with family and friends, you can do what you want more often, etc. And look at just what happened here. This attitude change happened instantly and you haven't received one cent yet!

You may be saying, "Yeah, that would change my mood.  But that's because I knew I was going to get the money."  And you just hit the nail on the head!.  You actually BELIEVED that you will have all that money coming to you (even though a million things could go wrong from now until you receive your first $1).  So, now you know what the problem is if your mood doesn't change.  It's simply that you do not believe it will happen one day.

So, again, it's not the actual desire being fulfilled that will change your mood, but rather the thought of it coming to fruition one day in the future.

Thank you!

Now what do you want in your life that will make you happy? A better body? Better relationships? A trip to Hawaii? More money flowing in...Passively? Whatever your true desires, keep your eyes and ears open for it.  Like a kid who is obsessed with getting that toy, he looks at it everyday, he tries and figure out how he can get it, he pictures himself playing with it, etc.  If you know what you are looking for, it WILL come into your life!  You just don't know how soon it will be.

Thank you!

This simple but powerful technique is how you get through work (or any adverse situation for that matter) because once you're in a happy mood (or as "The Secret" says, "vibrating" in that certain frequency range), nothing can affect you from performing your best (and bringing into fruition what you want).

Now you can easily influence yourself to perform well in any adverse situation.  Use it everyday and remember, you will soon get what you desire!

(To embed your desires in your subconscious, try this 10 minute a day exercise to get what you want.)

Losing Is a GREAT Sign!

Did I write that title correctly? YES, I did!

Why is losing (not on purpose, but an actual good effort loss) a great sign? Well, for starters, it means you actually took action and tried something. And, another reason is that you actually pushed and tested yourself with something challenging to see where you currently stand.

Without losses (or any negative or opposite outcome for that matter), we can NEVER appreciate, enjoy, and BENEFIT from the wins. Whenever we experience a "win" in this type of environment, our self-esteem/self-confidence grows tremendously. We start building pillars of confidence we never thought we could achieve and that enables us to attack bigger and better things!

With this mindset, trying new and/or bigger things is now a game. You approach it with this competitive attitude and things can be fun. But, before you start something, decide how you are going to determine a "win" or a "loss." It could be by time, by dollar amount, by score, etc.

Now, it can be tough experiencing a "loss" but the next time you do, interpret it as 1. You TOOK ACTION and 2. You challenged yourself enough. Adjust the "challenge level" so it's attainable but not easy. And when, not if, that "victory" comes, it WILL be sweet!

You want to surprise yourself with what you are capable of? Here's a thought that comes from a world renowned psychotherapist, lecturer, and author of 20 books that sold over 4 million copies, Dr. Nathaniel Branden:

*No One Is Coming ... (to rescue you,to make my life right, to redeem my childhood, etc.)

So, when you are confronted with adverse circumstances and you start feeling sorry for yourself, remember this and see the power you have within yourself.

Watch this video to see what you can accomplish when you tell yourself "No One Is Coming..."

Now go influence yourself with the POSITIVES of losing...and you just might break a personal record!
