How to turn your frustrations into your motivation.

This is September 23rd of my book:  ‘How To Change Your Life One Day At ATime‘.

Take the opportunity today to write down your top 20 frustrations with achieving your goals.

When I was taking Bob Proctor’s Goal Achiever’s Program my facilitator asked me to do this exercise. At first I thought it sounded a bit negative but I did it anyway – they know what they’re talking about, right?

They did! It turned out to be a really powerful exercise.

Sitting down and really thinking about what is holding You back, articulating those frustrations and putting them in black and white for you to read will open your eyes.

Get them all out. If there’s more than 20 that’s ok – write them all. But do at least 20.

Start each one with the words: ‘I’m frustrated that…

(Then go to Step 2 – see blog post suggestion above)

1 Step to turn a negative into a positive.

This is August 27th of my book:  ‘How To Change Your Life One Day At A Time‘.

Take the opportunity today to change your perception.

Last summer I completed the Bob Proctor ‘Goal Achiever’s Program’ and on one of the audios I listened to he spoke about perception. It supposes that our perception of a situation directly influences our action in that circumstance.

EG: We’d gladly walk across a plank of wood suspended 6 feet off the ground if there was a £1000 reward at the other end, but we wouldn’t if the plank were 200 feet off the ground. Then again, if our child was in a building that was on fire and that plank bridged the gap between it and a neighbouring building we would gladly cross it to save them – no matter how high up.

I’ve listened to it a few times now and something dawned on me last night as I was walking one of our dogs; if that’s true, which it seems obvious that it is, then we can actually use that knowledge to motivate ourselves more effectively.

Let’s say you have a task to do on your day off. It’s a bit of a dull task but it needs doing. You might ordinarily decide to leave it and do it another day and we all know what will happen there – the next day becomes another day which becomes another day and so on and the task remains to be done. Now consider that you put it in your mind that your boss is going to give you a 20% rise if you get that task completed today. Just think that. You’ll possibly find that actually motivated you to consider doing the task. Really imagine it’s true, imagine you just got off the phone with your boss, they were really pumped up and excited about giving you that raise for completing that task. Pretty soon you will feel a whole lot more motivated to do it.

Note: Keep the perception positive rather than negative, ie: imagine the boss is going to give you a raise for doing it rather than imagining he’ll fire you for not doing it. Positive outcomes are much more compelling and motivational than negative ones.

Try it and see – it’s just a theory!

The difference between seeing a storm as a disaster or a thing of beauty – is your perspective.

Hiya,

When I was taking Bob Proctor’s Goal Achiever’s Program my facilitator
asked me to do this exercise. At first I thought it sounded a bit
negative but I did it anyway – they know what they’re talking about,
right?

They did! It turned out to be a really powerful exercise.

Sitting down and really thinking about what is holding you back,
articulating those frustrations and putting them in black and white
for you to read will open your eyes.

Get them all out. If there’s more than 20 that’s ok – write them all.
But do at least 20.

Start each one with the words: ‘I’m frustrated that…

I’m going to tell you tomorrow what to do next!

Enjoy

Hiya,

I recently completed the Bob Proctor ‘Goal Achiever’s Program’ and on
one of the audios I listened to he spoke about perception. It supposes
that our perception of a situation directly influences our action in
that circumstance.

ground if there was a £1000 reward at the other end, but we wouldn’t
if the plank were 200 feet off the ground. Then again, if our child

Take the opportunity today to learn.

Hiya,

Learning is a passion of mine. When I was at school however, I found
many of the lessons dull, boring, mundane and tedious. Subjects that
today I find fascinating; history, geography, biology, science,
literature. It boils down to the way we learn. At school these
subjects were taught out of text books or via the blackboard. Groan! I
wasn’t engaged, my imagination wasn’t stirred.

Maybe it’s an age thing, that as we get older we become more
interested in the world at large and how it got that way. But I don’t
think so. Bob Proctor said once that a child, up to the age of five or
six, would rather learn than do anything. If you think about it a
child’s brain is programmed to learn just as a matter of survival.

Considering our brain grows more outside of the womb than the nine
months inside it, which is more than any other animal, suggests that
learning is the most valuable asset we have. Intelligence however is
the result of the cumulation of knowledge whereas wisdom is the result
of experience. If we allow experience and knowledge to combine we can
take our learning to new heights. This learning will allow us to take
advantage of more opportunitites which in turn will give us new
experiences. If we continue to learn from them – hopefully we’ll get a
little wiser in the process.

Enjoy
