TRIPLE III TIME: What’s “IT” For You?
Sometimes during the classes I teach, the sessions I conduct or the individual discussions I have with workers in any field…they ask: How do I get “restarted” each day? What gets you energized?…Who do you talk to?…Do you have a special routine you follow? You all understand the questions. Well, no matter the issue or question the “IT” that they/we/I are talking about is MOTIVATION.
Many of our TRIPLE III TIME messages have touched on MOTIVATION topics…but this time lets go a little deeper. What motivates YOU: money, status, your family, colleagues or just the challenge of doing something cool? Is it one thing or are you Multi-MOTIVATED? But what about when you feel unmotivated…where do you look for “get-up-and-get-it” answers?
BOTTOMLINE: First, take a long, hard look in the mirror. Understand that there is no one anywhere that can motivate YOU more than YOU. You can read books about it, go to seminars, get a life coach or even ask GOOGLE. In the end, the person on the white horse that must ride in to help YOU will be YOU!
Second, seriously pick a source of MOTIVATION. It doesn’t have to be just one thing or the same thing every day…but pick a MOTIVATOR. Next, pick a point of success. It can be small (signing up for a cool class) or big (starting a new product-line at work). Finally, make it a MOTIVATION PRIORITY to be an example to all that you know. The feeling of satisfaction that will come from having others learn and benefit from our commitment will keep your “IT” (MOTIVATION) going for YOU.
