Why getting success seems impossible to many of us, even after trying many times?
After multiple attempts when we don’t get success, we loose motivation and hence quit. A common question striking every mind is how to stay motivated for long, till we succeed? Getting motivation is easy, but how many of us can retain that. It goes the way it comes in our life. Even after motivating again and again we find it hard to reach our goals.
Motivation doesn’t last longer because it diminishes the moment challenges arise. We are prone to live in our comfort zones and it becomes hard to take challenges because we don’t like changes and find excuses to stay away. We feel (at times believes) we are not capable enough, people finding success are born extraordinary and hence are capable to change or bring changes in the society.
How to make motivation stay longer?
Once said by the late American motivational speaker Jim Rohn: “Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going,” knowing that motivation alone cannot keep one on track, to achieve goals.
Here comes the answer to the question, make it your habit to keep you motivating for achieving the goal. Build your goal around your passion so that you feel self motivated. Find a reason for setting a particular goal which compels you to fulfill the same. When we build our goal under some pressure (parental, family, societal, greed, competition etc) we are prone to lose and chances to achieve our goals are minimal or even if we do so, satisfaction will not be there.
How to devise 2 P's for your success?
A perfect combination of Procedure (Sound habits) + Purpose (Compelling Why) is required to get success in personal and professional life. We need a powerful purpose that will help us to stick to our procedure and a right procedure to reach our objective. To find out why, it is required to dive deep into your mind and find answers to certain questions, like what will I achieve after fulfilling this? Why is it important for me? Will I achieve the sense of fulfilment after achieving this? Once we have a purpose, we can build a procedure to reach our goal.
It is bound to happen that we will fail, and we may take the wrong path. The idea is to stay positive, look at the things with different approaches. Take problems as challenges. Instead of panicking, detach yourself from the problem and look at all the aspects of it, you will find multiple solutions for the same problem and hence can choose the best one.
Irrespective of our culture custom and the places of our birth we all have grown up listening to the stories stating “it’s our attitude that determines our altitude”. Successful people are among us and are not born different, instead they choose to perform differently. Anyone can be successful who is capable of devising the perfect combination of the 2 P’s.
