You don’t feel any excitement, and are not looking forward to anything? You lack inspiration and motivation to boost your personal growth. I won’t leave you in despair. This article will increase your self-esteem and bring your life back on a level that excites, motivates and fills your life with joy. Let’s dive in.
Start with guided thinking exercises
This kind of exercises will help you to focus on the positive and the possible things for your life. They will enable both your career and personal growth.
A lifetime list
Make a list of what you want to do in your lifetime. Don’t limit the list. It can even contain several hundred items. For example, my list includes traveling, launching my own business, etc. and I have chosen a lifestyle which stimulates the accomplishment of my dreams. What about you?
What are your favorite activities?
Write down your ten favorite activities, the ones you cannot imagine your life without. As for me, working, writing, cooking, walking and discovering new things are the inseparable part of my life. Get your activities done and follow them at least weekly, sometimes even daily.
What causes you dissatisfaction?
Think about the things which are the main reasons for your dissatisfaction. Don’t forget about the things which make you feel positive as well. Try to focus on the good ones and remove the issues causing unhappiness.
Nothing will change if you only lean on the sofa and dream. Get up and do something that is totally new to you. Leave your comfort zone and try on new people, places, and activities. Don’t forget about your friends. See them at least twice a month to talk and keep your supportive and caring relationship. Actually, balanced diet and daily exercises can refresh you a great deal.
Read books about personal growth
I’m sure you have come across too many self-motivating books in your local bookstore. Moreover, you have opened various websites which help provide sources for personal growth and motivation but didn’t take them seriously. It is high time to change your attitude towards such sources. They really work if you follow the hints step by step. They have a psychological influence on our way of thinking aiming to change our lives for better.
He changed my life
It was a period when I was feeling down and depressed. The things surrounding me were boring and didn’t excite me anymore. So, I have started to look for something or someone who will fuel my motivation. At last, I have found him. His name is Brian Tracy, a person whose speeches and advice made me reconsider what I want and what I want to reach. There are certain quotes from Mr. Tracy I want you to follow in the depth of your despair.
”Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.”
”Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, ‘What’s in it for me?”’
”Winners make a habit of manufacturing their own positive expectations in advance of the event.”
”I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often.”
Give up these things
These are bad habits you should give up on the way to personal growth:
- Letting the opinions of others control your life
- The shame of past failures
- Escaping the problems that should be fixed
- Making excuses, not decisions
- Overlooking the positive points in your life
- Choosing to do nothing
- Not appreciating the present moment, etc.
You are the driver of your life car. You choose the type of the road to pass. The road to success and personal growth is not an easy one, but if you are determined enough, even the huge rocks can be removed from your way. Never, ever sit and wait that an apple will fall on your head and you will make a discovery. The 21st century is the era of taking action. If you start doing what you really enjoy with enthusiasm, the success will start following your path. Never give up on your dreams, stick to the point confidently and make my life motto your own as well: ”If one has achieved, you can achieve it as well. If no one has ever achieved, you will be the first to achieve.”
