I recently had an experience where I felt tremendous amounts of inspiration and motivation. My mind instantly started to work with multiple great ideas of what I could do to do giant leaps forward to accomplish my goals. I was passionately inspired to do my work.
What happened was that people had given me lots and lots of positive criticism for the work I had done. I felt great and my heart was warm, I could have run a Marathon on that positive energy.
When I later found out that everything was a big misunderstanding on my part, the air went out of me and I felt how the inspiration and motivation left in an instant. I was very disappointed.
How can I turn this into something positive I thought? How can I make this happen again for real?
I head felt very strongly that getting positive input from people really boosts me. I guess it’s the same with you. If we hear that we are nice, smart, good looking, sweet, charismatic and that the things we do are excellent, inspiring and savvy we get inspired to be better and do even more extraordinary things!
If you are struggling to lose weight you should try to get inspiration from other people. To hear someone say “You are doing great“, “You impress me” or “Wow, I can really see that you are loosing weight” can be a boost in self confidence and a spark of motivation that can take you to the next step in your weight loss transformation.
Lots of people blog about their weight loss journey, and that’s a good thing. It’s a chance for them to get positive input from people in the same situation. Random people can give comments and give words of encouragement, that inspires the blog owner to blog even more and to push a little more with exercise and diets in order to work towards their goals.
If you don’t have a blog, you could join a forum on the net for weight loss. There you can meet people that struggles with the same problems as you. You can learn stuff, teach others about your experiences and motivate each other.
Being around the right people is also important. If you hang with like-minded you will surely hear words of encouragement which will empower you. A process of weight loss needs a lot of fuel in form of positive input. You have to get motivated every day in order to be successful.
Start giving people compliments and words of encouragement and you will surely get it back. Be the positive and inspiring friend/partner you wanna have yourself. Give unselfishly and do you best to make people happy and you will receive the same love. If people around you don’t say things spontaneously, ask them what they think about you and your efforts. Maybe they think you are a fighter with a strong mind, a great model with a desirable attitude but they don’t say it out loud for some reason.
If you want to hear positive things and get motivated by others – motivate and encourage others!
