4 Steps To Increase Your Self Motivation

Did you know that there are 3 tips to increase your self motivation that can have a dramatic impact on achieving your targets?

Well there is and I use them all the time.

There are some people who are naturally motivated. They simply do what needs to be done to get where they want to go and then there are others (me included) who fight and struggle to get the motivation to do what is required to get to their target.

Some of us love external rewards and others (that would be me again) who are not motivated by external desires and if you fall into the latter category, then becoming motivated can be tricky for you.

Intrinsic motivation or motivation coming from within – inspiration – is something that is very personal for every person and yet it is more powerful than any external reason for doing something.

Motivation from within is when you find yourself doing something without struggle. You simply do it and it is fun, light and easy for you to do. There is also a sense of achievement that is felt after the action is taken.

It is the feeling of having a good habit without the effort of creating that habit to begin with.

So how do you create intrinsic motivation?

  1. Ask a question
  2. Align with the highest expression
  3. Embody the energy of the answer
  4. Go with the flow

Let’s start with 1. Ask a question.

An example of this is wanting to get fit, but you’re not the exercising type. You don’t have the energy to exercise and you don’t like how it makes you feel when you do exercise… no motivation there!

So, asking questions like “What adventures could I have in life where the side effect is getting fit?” or “How would my body like to look and feel?” and any other questions you can think of and then throwing them out to the Universe (in other words, not answering them with your cognitive mind) will allow an inkling or a feeling of the energy of those adventures or feelings to come to you.

Number 2. Very important! Aligning with the highest expression of what your intention allows the energy to flow more easily and for the answer to be something that you REALLY WOULD LIKE in your life. Not something that you think you want, but really don’t.

Number 3. Embodying the energy of the answer is simply that… allowing the energy or feelings you get from asking your question to expand and grow within you. Make it stronger and stronger.

If you don’t get an answer from your question, just trust that there is an energy that you are embodying. Imagining it works just as well and if you simply can’t imagine it, what if you could receive the information in a way that works for you?

Be the energy.

And then 4. Go with the flow means to take action. Sometimes this action can be to integrate the information by having a rest. It could mean that you go and do something that nurtures your body or it could mean that you get a burst of energy to move your body. I find that I tend to do something that is not directly related to the question I’ve asked until the next day. I have a day of integration or delay before I feel the desire to take action.

The key to having intrinsic motivation is not to force yourself to do anything that you think is going to get you to your target, but to trust that there is a time and place for everything and when it’s time then you’ll take action quickly, easily and the results will be better than you expected.

Remember, this is your life. You have choice and your choices are not wrong. They are simply choices.
