Chapter 2 – Keeping It Simple
It may seem simple but the first thing you need to do is create your space around you at work and at home. This space needs to remain simple and positive. The things around you have a lot to do with the way you feel and if you will be motivated or stuck in a funk.
Your office space should contain and display items that make you feel positive about life and about reaching goals. If you have goals and things you would like to do it might be a good idea to post these things on the wall of your office or your cubicle. This way you have a constant reminder of the things you would eventually like to do.
For instance, if you enjoy visiting the beach in the summer and have pictures of yourself and your family enjoying a day in the sun, hang it in your office space. If you have a goal to purchase a new car next year, hang a picture of it near your desk to keep you focused on your goal.
Only you know where you would like to be in the future. You should create your space as a constant and positive reminder that you are working to get there. Create a positive atmosphere around you no matter where you are. This also includes the car you drive. If you spend many hours in the car commuting everyday make it a positive space. This means clean it up. Don’t drive around a depressing vehicle that is full of trash and paperwork. Get your car detailed and begin to take care of it. You would be surprised how good you will feel when you clean up your car.
A clean home and clean office space make a really big deal when you need motivation. If you find yourself sitting in mounds of paperwork you might have the attitude you are never going to complete the things you need done. A messy workspace can be frustrating and depressing. It may cause you to procrastinate and even be disorganized with your thoughts as well as your work.
A messy and dirty home can be depressing and disabling. Many people will sit around procrastinating for hours in a messy home. It is amazing how good a clean home can make you feel. The best thing you can do is to spend a couple of hours to clean up your home. You will feel great and ready to take on anything. Get rid of those clothes which have been sitting in the closet for years that you haven’t worn once. Clean out the mess in the shed and the garage. Don’t just wipe down the counters and do the dishes. Clean house means create a new space that is positive and ready for the new to come into your home. Get rid of all of the old.
The space you spend your time in includes your car, home, and the office space you work in. It has a lot to do with the way you feel and the attitude you have when you wake up in the morning. Clean up the spaces you live in and make a positive atmosphere for you to enjoy and want to have a good day. You will finally see the goals as achievable rather than sit around thinking about them.
Chapter 3 – Keeping Good Company
Hanging out with positive people is one of the best ways to be motivated. You should talk to someone positive at least once a day. Many of the ways you can have a positive encounter with people include in person, over the phone, and over the computer. Try to make this a habit on a daily basis.
Some people are not very social. They might go days without talking to others. This is very unhealthy. If you are one of these people who is not a very social person and find that you don’t have many encounters with others you may not feel too motivated to succeed as well. This doesn’t mean you have to be a social bug. What this means is that you need to feed your need for positive interaction. You don’t have to see the other person either. There are techniques you can practice to encounter others positively without even seeing them in person. How you do these things is up to you but this is very important.
Keeping good company means hanging out with others who are supportive of you and your goals for life. You want people to support you and believe in you too. If you have goals to be successful with your own gardening company you should hang out with people who are supportive. If you are around people who are negative about your endeavors and unsupportive you will not feel good about it. Cut the negativity out. If these people are family members it could be the most difficult decision you ever made. However, it will be the best thing you can do for you. If people are not supportive or positive then cut them out.
Interestingly, many doctors who treat patients who are suffering from cancer, prescribe their patients to watch comedies during the day and to stay around people who are positive in their attitude. When your attitude turns negative it can negatively affect your health!
The most common way you can have an encounter with someone on a daily basis is to talk to people. You should have regular encounters with positive people. The best way to start your day is to have coffee every morning with a positive person. If you live near your best friend who is a coffee drinker then you can plan to leave for work earlier everyday and have coffee at their house or have them come over. This is an excellent way to start your day and put you in a great mood for work. You will already start the social side of you so when you get to work you won’t feel like such a grouch.
If you do not have time in the mornings to meet with someone or any other time of day you should try to find the time to talk to someone on the phone. You might have a best friend you can call and talk to or a family member. Be sure the person is someone that makes you feel good about yourself and life.
If you don’t like to talk on the phone and you don’t have time to stop by and talk to someone everyday then you might consider the Internet as your best option. Many people use this method as a way to keep good company. When you go online you can join a chat room for just about anything today. There are millions of chat rooms all over the web. Be sure to pick a chat room that is about something you feel good about. For instance, if you have a goal to do something you might join a group with others who are working toward the same goal. This is a very good way to boost your positive attitude and motivate you to work toward that goal.
Negativity can almost be infectious in some situations. You want to be sure the people you are talking to are positive. If the person you choose to hang out with is a negative person who is always complaining and who sees the negative side of everything they might not be who you want to help you become motivated. Negativity will only bring you down and cause you to be negative too.Other Details
