Motivation and how to get motivated

 

How many times have you started enthusiastically a weight loss program, began a bodybuilding or aerobics training program, or started learning a foreign language, only to stop after a short while?

How many times have you intended to do something different, study a certain topic or start a certain project, but couldn’t, due to lack of motivation? At times, you might have started the new project, but only for a little while, and then stopped because you lost enthusiasm or did not have enough motivation? This happens quire often.

What is motivation, and why do you need it?

Motivation is a driving force. In order to accomplish anything, you need a driving force, otherwise nothing would happen. A wish is not strong enough to make you take action. A wish is a weak desire, and only a strong desire can drive you forward, to act and accomplish aims and goals.

In order to get motivated, you need to know exactly what it is that you want. Your goal should be clear and sharp, and you need understand and become aware of its benefits. Thinking often of your goal, and accepting the idea that it can come true, would increase your motivation and strengthen your desire to achieve it.

Thinking and persuading yourself of the importance of what you want to do or achieve, would increase your motivation, strengthen your desire, and make you willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish your goal.

It easier to display motivation in connection with short-term goals. When it comes to long-term goals, it is not always possible to sustain the motivation for a longer period of time. This is why it is wiser to start with small goals, and after gaining experience with being motivated, you proceed to bigger goals.

If you desire to get a certain object, or accomplish a certain goal, but you don’t feel motivated enough to act, it means that the desire or goal are not important enough. To be motivated to take action and do something in respect to your goal, you need to possess a strong desire.

Motivation has become a popular term nowadays. There are motivational coaches and speakers, and motivational books and articles. You can find a lot of information about it on the Internet.

Motivation has much to do with the emotions and the imagination, which means that if you want to increase it, you have to work on your feelings and imagination.

How to Get Motivated? Here are a few tips that could help you.

Tips to Increase Your Motivation:

  1. Think and analyze your desire, to find out whether you really want to achieve it, and whether it is worth the effort and time.
  2. Make your goal very clear. Writing it down will help.
  3. Think often about your goal or desire.
  4. Visualize your goal as already accomplished, and shut your mind to doubts and disbelief.

  6. Read about people who have achieved success. This would inspire you to emulate them. you can find books, articles and videos that would be helpful.

Top 10 books for personal development

We are often asked which books are most transformational for people like us who want to do fantastic work and lead our best lives. So here are 10 of the best. Read them. Share them. Study them. LIVE them…

  1. Jonathan Livingston Seagull. By Richard Bach. With lines like: “Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation,” this book will move you deeply. I re-read it in Thailand. Still amazingly good.
  2. Think and Grow Rich. By Napoleon Hill. Fantastic book. Not so much about financial wealth as it is about the making of a rich life. You’ll learn how important it is to have a burning desire (this galvanizes your focus and causes the release of your creativity) + the imperative of setting clear goals + the value of “a mastermind alliance”. This book truly changed my life when I was starting out as a self-published author with nothing but a dream in my hands. Times were tough. This book got me through.
  3. The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius. By–well, Marcus Aurelius. Marcus Aurelius was a warrior—who then became a Roman emperor. He wrote his lessons on greatness and a life well lived during a multi-year military campaign. Someone got his notes. And put it into this book. I go back to this book often. It strengthens my character. And resolve to help more people.
  4. Steve Jobs. By Walter Isaacson. One of the best books I’ve ever read. Period.
  5. Long Walk To Freedom. By Nelson Mandela. Nelson Mandela’s one of my heroes. Noble. Courageous. Focused. A visionary. If I could be 1/100 of who he is, I’d be overjoyed. This is his autobiography. You’ll walk with him through his days as a lawyer, his time as a disruptor, his prison years and his period as the positional leader of South Africa.
  6. Stop Acting Rich. By Thomas Stanley. Thomas Stanley became famous for “The Millionaire Next Door”. But this book–not so well known–is exceptional. He explains the concept of “The Glittering Rich”, shares how too many of us live beyond our means and how to create true financial freedom. Like most of the books I read, I listened to it.
  7. As You Think. By James Allen. Maybe 10 times. That’s at least how many times I’ve read this book. And like all great books, it seems better+wiser and deeper every time I read it. Of course, the book hasn’t changed. Just my ability to grasp the information. And understand the concepts. This book is all about the power of your daily thinking. And how it drives your life’s behavior. As you know so well: your behavior shows us your beliefs. And this awesome book will inspire you to build new ones.
  8. The Magic of Thinking Big. By David Schwartz. Uber-practical. Tons of value. Great concepts, like “Go Through Life First-Class.” Every student, teammate and human being should read this book (along with “How To Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie–that work should also be on my list. True.).
  9. Talent is Overrated. By Geoff Colvin. Read this one a few years ago. Changed the way I viewed Genius. Confirms a lot of the work of exceptional performance researchers like the famed Anders Ericsson that talent is less about natural gifts and far more about devotion to a skill, relentless practice and patience. Another superb audiobook.
  10. Spark. By John Ratey. One of the best books I’ve read in years. I’m on my 3rd reading. Shares the latest (and so fascinating) research on how exercise transforms the brain, our performance, our productivity and even builds a new type of brain that is excellent at resisting stress. Please do your life a giant favor. And read this book. Today!

Ok. So there you go. Some of my favorite books. Go study them. And use them.

Please remember, ideas–flawlessly translated into reality are the keys to breathtaking success. And you becoming more of who you truly are.

 

Oh–and definitely make some time each day to read. Small little advances in your knowledge base lead to quantum improvements in your performance over time.

Be great. And dream even bigger. The world needs you to shine!

Tbilisi – An International Hub of Higher Education

 

If some 20 years ago, there was only one university in Tbilisi, which was unanimously acknowledged as the main source of higher education and often referred to as the “temple of knowledge”, nowadays our country does not at all have a deficiency of universities.

Together with many changes in social life, a lot of institutes acquired such titles in Tbilisi and Georgian regions. Within the past few years, quite a lot of foreigners have arrived in Tbilisi as well as other towns, giving them an international aura. It turns out that quite a big number of them, not counting those who work here, are international students.

Despite complications with the new September 1st visa regime where some international students previously enrolled in Georgian Universities were denied residence permits and forced to discontinue their studies in Georgia or to return back to their home country to re-apply, it seems that the number of international students in Tbilisi is still on the rise.

There are all options and conditions for education. Georgia is the best post soviet country by social development, modern methods in education and better life conditions. That is why Georgia is closer to EU and now we have visa free negotiation with EU Countries. There are even some who, working here, think of education as well, if not coming specifically to Georgia to get diplomas that enable them to continue their studies afterwards elsewhere in Europe.

So, why not come here, add a nice climate, great food and warm human relations? It is up to you, dear foreigners. We wish you success and hope that you will use your knowledge received in Georgia for the benefit of your country and on the other hand, promote Georgia’s international image by telling your fellow citizens positive stories about your host country.

Good luck!
