What Makes the Difference?
On a warm spring afternoon, fifteen years ago, two young men graduated from the same college. They were similar in many ways...
Like most ambitious, hard working students they had also enjoyed time off to play sport and to have fun with their friends. And they were both very excited about the bright future that lay ahead.
Fifteen years later they met.
They were still alike in many ways. Both had a good family life, a comfortable home and they both had a little gray hair!
But there was a difference.
One of the men is stuck in his career and he hates his dead end job. He feels frustrated and unappreciated. And each Monday morning he drags himself out of bed to struggle through another tiring week.
The other man is in charge of his own business and works as many or as few hours as he pleases each day. He is excited about his work and is richly rewarded for his success. He is living the dream.
What made the difference?
Have you ever wondered how two people of similar ability and intelligence can produce such different results in their careers?
One person struggles day after day and claws his way to the top of his department - while another seems to have a never ending drive to do more and to achieve more. He rises to the top of the company in record time.
The difference is in knowing how to get motivated and more importantly how to stay motivated. There is an easy way and a hard way.
The hard way means getting stressed about deadlines, constantly beating yourself up and never really achieving anything of value without a lot of worry and tension. It can also mean feeling exhausted and overwhelmed much of the time.
On the other hand, the easy way means you feel a sense of purpose and drive to achieve more for your own satisfaction and enjoyment. You get more done in less time and you feel energized by your goals. And even better, people respect and value you in a whole new way.
Which do you prefer - the easy way or the hard way?
Knowledge is Power.
Right now I can turn on or turn off my own motivation at will without needing other people to coax me into action.
And it is easy when you know how.
Once I found an approach that worked all I did was follow the step-by-step instructions and my world changed as quickly as I changed.
And this can happen for you even faster than you think...
When you become a master of self-motivation you will wonder why you waited so long to get your hands on the knowledge that was here for you all along.
Think about it for a moment. Why do you want to be more motivated?
What are the most important reasons why you want to improve this aspect of your life?
What have you missed out on by neglecting this crucial skill?
The time to change is now - until you do, another day, another week and another month will slip by and you will be no further forward in your life. If you are waiting for the perfect time you will wait forever. It is time to try a new and better way...
