Awhile back I was researching motivation because i was lacking motivation… pretty bad. I just sat on fb, insta, twiter, snapchat ect all day long, and would keep telling myself ok 5 more minutes and I’m done.
While researching how motivation work i came across this concept like twice, once from i think Tony ribbons went into it little if i recall right and the other was Owen Cook, which really has helped me get shit done! ha so i hope this helps listen up (:
Starting out I want to explain to you that we’re different personalities at certain times, and it splits into 3 categories
- Higher self
- Day to Day Self
- Lower self
who is all about your “purpose” on earth why you are alive for, could be spiritual for some people. pretty much what is it that you’re best at and what can you bring that is your best and most to offer to society.
Day to Day Self
Is in the middle, you care about shit that need to get done like paying bill, going to work ect it is practical.
Owen calls this your “Petty Self” its the one that envys, gets jealous, cares about self image and proving yourself to other people.
So we switch through out these three through out the day or a mix of the three, the key thing is to Aline all 3 in the same direction of the goal you want to achieve. This will give you the motivation to pursue whatever it is you’re after.
Example:You want to get in good shape and health
Higher self would be, you’re healthier so you perform better which in turn you can help other people better, you can think faster/clearer to help others as well, you can teach what you learned ect.
Day to Day would be, Perform a job more efficiently, Not getting tired so you have energy to pay bills, clean ect.
Lower Self would be, show people how ripped as faaaakkk you are and have them mirin you. 😉
the Lower Petty stuff actually usually helps people get started But! ***be careful not to live in just one of the three, even though the lower petty stuff is kinda a good motivator to start most people (try to use for good goals) it usually is a short run.
Make it last
Like i said petty goals can get you started but wont last and keep you going. Day to day helps establish yourself by Higher self takes the focus off yourself and see what you can do for others is good, but you could stop caring for practical things like paying bills and getting shit done (day to day). So a line all three!!!
Last thing i want to include from Tony Robbins is what he talks about O.P.A.
Outcome, Purpose, Action
Whats the outcome you want to happen, Why are you doing it (can tie in with 3 personalities), and What actual behaviors would have to happen every day to make it happen. 🙂
So I hope this helps get your motivation in line and keep you motivated! enjoy 😉
