The difference between extraordinary people and ordinary people is the little “extra” that extraordinary people do more than normal people. And you are no different than the great people out there.
It is just that successful people take more action and put in much more hours into doing than thinking about the things that they want to accomplish. And it is their discipline that gives them the reward that they deserve. Therefore, if you want to achieve the same outstanding success, you must start from disciplining yourself.
And in order to be discipline to take action, you have to begin with your mind and your thoughts. You need to learn to ask better and more effective questions. Great people ask great questions, thus they get great answers and solutions. They ask motivating questions, thus they get inspired and driven into taking action.
And this is exactly what you need to do to so that you will feel motivated and kick start your engine into taking massive action. Below are the 7 effective questions that can boost your motivation and help you overcome procrastination right away…
1. What action can I take for just 5 minutes now?
This is a very powerful question that you should ask yourself from time to time. First, it gives you a sense of clarity of what you can do and second, it actually break down the actions into smaller piece that you can do it within 5 minutes. The most important key is to get you started. It is alright if your goal is to write a book and you get it started by writing only a paragraph.
In fact, there is no such thing as one shot for big success. All the great achievements you have seen are accumulated from small successes done over a long period of time. Rome was not built in a day and so with Microsoft’s business empire. So focus in doing the small action that you can do immediately right now, even if it is just writing a paragraph or making just one phone call. The key is to get you started.
2. What dreams do I want to achieve and what goals I want to accomplish?
Always remind yourself about what you want to accomplish in the future. Your dreams and your goals are what will inspire and motivate you. If what you want is not motivating you into taking action, you might want to reconsider setting it as target because it is not what you truly want.
Your goals and the dreams you pursue must be exciting enough to get you into action. Most people procrastinate because they don’t feel pleasurable to take action.
3. Why am I doing this?
The reasons behind you do things are your source of motivation. If you want to quit smoking but fail to do so, it is because you don’t have a strong and emotional reason to support you. Until one day you are diagnosed with severe health problem, and then you will stop smoking once and for all. It is when you are left with no other options that you will do whatever it takes to achieve it.
This is because when you have no other choices, the reasons behind become stronger and if you did not take action to make it happen, you will have to face serious consequences. Therefore, find out your strong emotional reasons to why you want to achieve what you desire…
