Most people seek this growth from the work that they do, in their every day job. Others find it in a hobby. The challenge occurs when the work you are doing is not motivating, or not motivating enough. This can lead to a “flat” feeling or worse still, real negative emotions, but the lack of motivation may also prevent any action being taken that could potentially change things for the better.
A lack of motivation will eventually filter its way through into other areas of our lives, because these things are all interlinked. A person, who feels a lack of motivation at work, may be in bad spirits when they get home, and therefore not give the best of themselves to their relationship, or perhaps they will go wild socially to attempt to rebalance, and this could then have a negative impact on their health. In fact, this is the most common scenario and I have witnessed it firsthand. Many people I worked with in the past- and even myself, have been in disempowering or unstimulating jobs, and then spend Friday and Saturday night drinking too much, eating too much and generally over doing things. Now I am in a job that I love, providing NLP, Hypnotherapy and Life Coaching for motivation to those in St Albans, that constantly sets me worthwhile challenges I can say that I have a much more balanced lifestyle.
People require motivation for many different areas of their life- some need it to get them to the gym, others to give up smoking and others to change their career. In order to be completely committed to gaining motivation there are two things you must be willing to accept. One is pleasure (oh good!) and the other is pain (oh dear!). It’s the typical carrot and stick scenario and you must think of it this way: If you want to do something that you are currently not motivated to do, the chances are, you have probably considered all of the pleasurable ways it would be good for you to do it. For example, if you want to be motivated to go to the gym, you might list the following positive (pleasure/carrot) reasons:
1) I will look better when my body is fit
2) My body will be physically healthier
3) Exercising will help me to sleep better
4) I will meet more people
