Personal Motivation Tips For Higher Achievement.

Personal Motivation Tips For Higher Achievement

Setting goals spur personal motivation. Without goals, you may not have something to look on, you have to know what it is that
motivates you what reward or benefit is involved? That is what drives us as humans. Without this factor, there will not likely be
success in self-motivation.
That is the reason why it is very important to draw a list of goals.
This first step will get you started in the right direction to achieving personal-motivation.

The goals we set for ourselves sometimes tend to be way out of
our reach. When we do this, we our basically setting ourselves up for failure. When this happens, it is like taking a giant step backwards
in the motivation process.
Your goals need to be realistic and
possible. For instance, if winning the lottery is your goal, you need to rethink that goal. Yes, it is possible but it is not realistic to win the
lottery. It is very important to make sure that personal goals fit into both of these categories.

Another piece of advice in achieving personal-motivation is to never look back on past failures. This is just not a productive thing to do. We tend to get hooked up on our mistakes
and then they become major obstacles on the way to our goals. Learning from our mistakes is not a problem but we should be careful not to dwell on them.
Having in mind that we are just human and we are not perfect can help us become more self-motivated. Once you have figured out what motivates you personally, and you have set your goals, you're
about one third of the way through the process.

Next thing is to identify your objectives. They must be very specific objectives. They need to be
measurable, by the day, week or month. When questioned about these objectives, the answer should be a YES or NO answer. They
are basically directives that will tell you what needs to be done and when. Next comes the part where our human nature tries to step in and stop this self-motivation
process. It is called the commitment step. This phase of the process is difficult more so for some than others. Some people just have a real hard time committing to jobs, relationships, and personal
gains.

Some of this lack of commitment comes from low self-esteem or low self-confidence. In order to be successful at self-motivation, you
must be confident in yourself and know your own worth. Every body has strengths and weaknesses. Identifying your personal weaknesses and strengths is a giant step in the right direction.

Whether you are searching for personal motivation for the purpose on stopping snoring, stop smoking, starting a new career, or putting an end to a bad habits, there are many self help books and free reports out on the internet that can help you with these issues.


But the grand truth here is that it is up to you and your attitude and your mindset. If you want to be self motivated, then all it will take is searching and identifying for what motivates you. Marking an achievable goal will play a vital role in setting you on the right path to personal motivation. You can achieve success,move out with determination and thing positive.

Win More Customers To Sustain Your Business

Win More Customers To Sustain Your Business

If you ate into a business of offering a service, you have to determine how many clients you'll need in
order to reach your goals. You don't have to have a group of ready-made clients when you begin, but it helps if you have a good network of people
who you can approach, asking them to become clients.

Start by making a list of your current clients, including clients to whom you give free services. From this list, estimate how many would be
willing to pay for your product or service (versus getting it for free). Consider how many of these
people can afford to pay, if that is an issue among your client base. Also, ask yourself if any of your current clients are old clients, meaning they have hired you more than once in
the past year or two.

Next, think "networking." How many people do you know who you can call, to tell them about your business, even if they have never bought your services or products before? Include them in the list of the following people: family, friends, business colleagues, members of your neighborhood or
community, and people you purchase products
and services from.

Let's say this list totals 40
people. Imagine if you tell 40 people about your services and products. Take a look at all your living
expenses and decide if your business is supposed to completely support your financial needs, or if
you will get another job to support you in addition to your business.

Determine your fees and do the
math to figure out how many sessions you have to do per year (or how many products you have to sell) to make your living expenses.

For example, say that you are a Bass guitar Teacher, and need a total income of #400,000 per year. If you are going to charge
#500 per hour, you'll need to do about 833 hours per year. This is equivalent to 69 hours per
month, or 17 hours per week, or 3-4 hours per day (using a 5-day work week). If you don't want to use up to that hours per day, you will either need to increase your prices, or lower your expectations of total revenue. And, you can get customers from schools,churches clubs etc
You can do this same math if you sell products. So let's say you need 833 hours per year to live
comfortably. Does that mean you have to find 833 individual clients? No, not really. Depending on your profession, you will have a certain
number of repeat clients who may come to you once a week, once a month, or once every six
months. If you have really good marketing, you can increase this number of repeat clients
by mailing and phone calls. Remember, it's cheaper to market to existing clients than to new,
prospective clients.

Take the time to do the math. Figure out how much work you have to do in order to live the life you want. Think Positive.
