Success At Any Time?

It goes without saying that we are unlikely to experience much success in our lives if we don't take action. That is why Anthony Robbins said,

"The path to success is to take massive, determined action."

Having planned to do something, we take action to achieve it.

So why is it that we so often decide to do something worthwhile, and either forget it when the time comes, or choose to put it off?

The answer is in motivation, or lack of it.

But what is motivation? I don't intend to define it with precision, but I do want to look at something that is always present when we feel motivated ? emotion.

Ask yourself, when did I last feel truly motivated without feeling some passion for what I intended to do? It could be negative passion as well as positive; for instance, we can be passionate about avoiding pain, but the element of emotion is still there. You cannot be motivated and apathetic at the same time.

The way to motivate ourselves is to raise an emotional response to our plans. We can do this in a number of ways, but a good starting point is to ask ourselves a question:

Why?

Why do I want to achieve this? What benefits will it bring? How will I feel when I have done it?

Having worked out your reasons, concentrate on visualising the end result. Enjoy the feeling of achievement in your imagination, hear what others will say, see the look of admiration on their faces.

How do you feel about achieving it now?

Depending on the nature of your goal, you will find it helpful to revisit your imagination at least once a day until you achieve it.
