How can Graphology be used for Motivation?
Have you ever thought where the word Motivation comes from? Motivation comes from a Latin word called ‘movere’ meaning ‘to move’. As the meaning suggests, motivation is the factor that helps us move forward in life. Motivation can be both intrinsic and extrinsic, meaning it can be encouraged from both inner forces and outer forces.
Whatever may have caused the motivation, what is more important to understand is the positive effect it has on the mind of a person. Psychologically speaking, your thoughts influence your actions, and positive thoughts lead to positive actions.
Jim Rohn once said, “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.”
The key of your life should be in your hands!
WHAT GIVES YOU MOTIVATION?
• Taking action / acting on your goals gives you motivation. Execution of tasks results in finishing them, and when you finish a task, you become more confident. Also, even if you do not realize, you come closer to your target. That gives you motivation. It is good to have new targets and goals in your life because that is what will keep you moving. Setting a new goal each time you finish an old one, gives more motivation.
• Staying focused on your targets also keeps the motivation going. Keeping your focus on the goals helps you achieve higher and faster results. Avoiding distractions and unhealthy conversations that pull you down keeps your energy intact.
• The environment around you is also a factor to be considered. The people you are surrounded with – your friends, your family, each person contributes to your psychological health. You are your thoughts, so make sure your circle is positive because your thoughts are influenced by your outer circle too, to a great extent.
• Try being the person you are looking for. Before looking out for people who inspire you, motivate you and support you, try to become the one who has the qualities that would leave a positive impact on whoever they meet. This can be achieved through improving yourself each day and being a better version of who you were.
• Rewards give us motivation. These can be given in kind or in material. Recognition, responsibility, appreciation are some forms of it. Self-care is also a part of it. Treating yourself right and giving yourself some incentives keeps you moving.
• Attitude is very important. Your attitude towards life and situations shapes your mind. Healthy self-esteem and confidence are both involved in being ingredients of motivation. Being respected and accepted by others, helps an individual grow. Also, an attitude of gratitude creates a positive impact on your mind.
• Your relations also play a role in motivating you. Your social needs create a sense of belongingness. Being a part of a group – be it family, friends, peers or even a partner, where you feel heard and understood, all aid in the motivation process. Being loved and showing love are both important in the process.
