The Driving Factor! ‘3 min read’

As promised here is my next post to ‘Vision of life

I have observed whenever I make a resolution or commit to a work, I will be on that sprint of mood to finish it right away and I will be able to finish it too, because I will be on fire to get things done. I will be happy and feel accomplished once it’s done and I will even ask for more work like such. Well, all these in the case of small commitments 😀

What happens to me when it’s something that takes time even longer like a yearly resolution. First day I will be super active, second day I will be active but not like the first day and I will get through the first week this way. Eventually that sprint of mood I mentioned earlier, I will almost forget that word. I will reach that state of ‘It’s okay’, It’s okay I have time, I will do it tomorrow and I will be queen of procrastination the next 2 days. The third day I will be guilty of being queen 😦

Again I will become conscious and become active. Even if I am not truly active, I will make sure I will motivate myself and get me into action and  I will say Yay!!!. This will continue for good 2 weeks. This goes on and on until the deadline of the challenge I accepted meaning the resolution I took. I have been in these days. I have been in these years. I am over it! I am glad I found ways to succeed. In my other article What happens to you after your ‘Success’? ,I had written about not making yearly resolution as #101 trick.

Like me, there are many out there who have found their ways to kill procrastination and get into action. There are still many who wants help and tricks to get that driving factor to be consistent. Not all the tasks or resolutions we commit to are small to finish off quickly. Like I said earlier, some takes time even longer like a yearly resolution. Like the day passes that mood fades too. It is easy to make a decision or a resolution when you are in that mood.  You see an inspiring video about working out in the morning and you make up your mind that you are going to work out every morning. That mood may last one minute or a day or a month. Once you lose that mood, you cannot do what you had planned to do. That’s how people fail in their resolution. That’s when the resolution becomes repeated and never ending. That’s when feeling frustration enters and you will get to say yeah I know this will not work out. You will easily give up and that definitely is not helping you to be consistent.

The key is “Like”. You need to like what you do.  You are the one who made that decision or commitment, so you better start liking it and continue liking it more.

Imagine if you don’t like a book after reading first 2 pages, it is better that you stop wasting more time in that book and pick a different book that keeps you interested. You can’t do the same for your resolution, you can’t change it every now and then. When you can love the same person and be in relationship with that same person for many decades. You can certainly develop the liking towards what you do even if it’s difficult. If you read my article on Love at first sight.Really??? you will understand what I mean by liking it and continue liking it more.

Start liking what you do.

The secret to happiness is not in doing what one like, but in LIKING what one does – James M.Barrie

If in case you are not in mood, do things you like that is quick and start feeling accomplished by doing them. When you get that sense of achievement, you would want to do more to achieve more. The more you achieve the more you want to do.

Love at first sight. Really???

The world would not exist if it’s not for love. I’m sure you are responding, yeah we know about it. Well yes! Then I’m sure you would also have heard, experienced, advised, and lectured that love happens at first sight. But I’m saying No, it does not. I have a slight feel that your eyes are not agreeing to what I say. Give this a thought with no preconception remember I mentioned in my first blog, no preconception. Just read this you will see a different world now with little patience.

newfirstLove does not happens at first sight, it’s the attraction that happens at first sight; it’s the liking that begins in your mind at first sight. You like that person because you are attracted by one of his qualities which can be behavior, attitude, smile, appearance, etc. And your liking makes you to look at that person again, by this action, the liking multiplies. Your eyes, your mind and now your heart also starts wandering around that specific person’s thought. Now the liking multiplies infinitely. When we start pursuing this liking, we start uttering the magic word ‘love’ and believe me this is how love happens at repeated first sights.

Take a moment, think how your love started, you might agree to what I just said. Next time, watch when you fall in love. It is a very nice cozy feeling to experience that moment of ‘love’ gravity.

Wish you all relish that beautiful experience and for whom it is yet to happen, you are so going to love it 🙂
