激励自己的25个简易技巧

by Henrik Edberg.

汉瑞克 埃德伯格著

Feeling less than motivated all too often? I do. Well, perhaps not too often. But sometimes I just feel really lazy and unmotivated.

经常感到消极吗?我就是。好吧,也许不是那么经常,但有时候我就是感到真的很慵懒消极。

Want some practical solutions to that universal motivation-problem? Here are 25 of them. Try a handful. 

解决普遍动机消极问题的实际方法是什么呢?以下的25条建议,你可以试试其中一些1

Let me know which ones work well for you. 

告诉我哪个方法适用于你

I’m sure you’ll find at least one or two that do just that among these suggestions.

我知道你至少能够在其中找到一两个适合你自己的。

1. Make a deal with yourself. Good for overcoming procrastination and getting things done. You can make the deal small or large. You simple tell yourself something like: When I’m done with this chapter/these reports I can take a walk in the park and enjoy an ice-cream.

1.与自己做交易。对你克服拖延,完成事情大有益处。你可以选择小的或大的交易。你可以只是简单的告诉自己:当我完成了这一章或这些报告之后,我就可以在公园里散步,享受冰激凌。

2. Act like it. If you don’t feel motivated or enthusiastic then act like it. The strange thing is that within a few minutes you actually start to feel motivated or enthusiastic for real.

2.假装喜欢它。如果你感到没有动力或激情去做某事的话,假装自己喜欢做这些事情。奇怪的是,当你这样做了的话,几分钟之内你就开始感到真的有动力和激情了。

3. Ask uplifting questions in the morning. Here’s what you do; every morning ask yourself five empowering three-part questions this way: 

3.早晨问自己一些令人振奋的问题。你可以这样做,每天早上按照这个方式问自己5个关于3部分的问题:

What am I ______ about in my life right now?

我现在在我的人生中做什么?

What about it makes me _______? 

这件事对我会有什么...?

How does it make me feel? 

它让我感觉怎么样?

Put in your own value in the blank space. For instance, a couple of my questions are: 

把你自己的观点填补到空白处,如我的两个问题:

What am I happy about in my life right now?

在我的人生中,我因为什么而快乐?

What am I excited about in my life right now?

在我的生活中,什么会令我感到振奋?

It’s important that you really feel how it makes you feel. When I think about the last part about what makes me happy right now I really feel it. These morning questions are great because the way they are set up makes you recognize things you take for granted and then they really get you to feel those positive feelings.

它带给你的真实感受很重要。当我思考最后一个部分,即什么让我感到快乐的时候,我真真切切地感受到了。这些晨间问题真的很棒,因为这样的问题让你意识到很多你认为理所当然的事情,然后这些问题让你感受到积极。

4. Move the goalposts. Set a large and specific goal. This will motivate you much more than small goals. A big goal has a big effect and can create a lot of motivation.

4.改变目标。确立一个远大而明确的目标。这样比起许多小目标更能激发你。一个远大的目标能够产生大的效应,创造很多积极的动机。

5. Do something small and create a flow. Just clean your desk. Or pay your bills. Or wash the dishes. You just need to get started. When you have finished that small task you’ll feel more alert and ready to go do the next thing. You just to get started to get motivated. So if you really don’t feel like doing anything, start with something small and work your way out up.

5.做一些小事情,感受涌流状态。比如清理你的桌子,或者支付账单,又或者洗盘子。你只需要动起来。当你完成了这些小事情之后,你就会觉察到自己,准备好了去做下一件事情。你只需要开始,得到激励。所以如果你真的不想做任何事情,从小事做起,理清思路。

6. Do the toughest task first. This will ease a lot of your day-to-day worries and boost your self-confidence for the rest of the day. Read more about doing the hardest task bright and early right here.

6.先做最艰难的事情。这样会减轻你许多日复一日的担忧,增强你一天内剩下时间的自信心。就在这个网站,多点阅读有关完成最艰难任务的文章。

7. Start slow. Instead of jumping into something at full speed start slow. When you do that your mind will not visualize the task as something hard that you have to do fast, fast, fast. If your mind sees such things guess what often happens? Yep, you don’t get started. Actually getting started, even if it’s at a slow pace, is a whole lot better than not getting started at all.

7.慢慢开始。以其全速进行某件事情,不如放慢速度。当你放慢速度的时候,你就不会意识到你必须加快速度完成这项任务的艰巨性。如果你意识到了这项任务的艰巨性,你猜会发生什么事情?是的,你就不会着手开始了。实际上,如果你已经开始行动起来的话,就算速度很慢,也比完全没有开始着手好得多。

8. Compare yourself with yourself. Not with others. Comparing what you have and your results to what other people have and have accomplished can really kill your motivation. There are always people ahead of you. Most likely quite a bit of people. And a few of them are miles ahead. So focus on you. On your results. And how you can and have improved them. 

8.和你自己比较。而不是和其他人。将你拥有的和你获得的结果与其他人拥有的和完成的相比较的话,这会扼杀你的动机。天外有天,人外有人。有相当多的人走在你前面,有些甚至是在离你更远的距离。所以专注于你自己和你自己完成的结果。想一下你怎样才能够改进它们。

Reviewing your results is important so you see where you have gone wrong in the past to avoid similar missteps further on. But it’s also important because it’s a great motivator to see how much you have improved and how far you have come. Often you can be pleasantly surprised when you do such a review.

审视你获得的结果是非常重要的,这样你就可以看到你以往在什么地方出现了错误,在今后的日子避免同样错误。但审视自己进步了多少也是同样重要,因为这样就能获得更大的激励。当你做这些反思审视的时候,你会经常感到惊奇。

9. Remember your successes. And let them flow through your mind instead of your failures. Write down your successes. Consider using a journal of some kind since it’s easy to forget your successes.

9.记住你的成就。让它们留在你的脑中,而不是失败。把你的成就写下来。如果你容易遗忘你的成就,考虑使用一本日记本之类的东西写下来。

10. Act like your heroes. Read about them, watch them, listen to them. Discover what they did that was special and what made them tick. But remember that they are people just like us. So let them inspire you instead of looking up at them admiringly.

10.像你的偶像一样。多点阅读他们的事迹,了解他们,关注他们。找到他们与众不同的地方,是什么让他们这么成功。但是记得他们也是和我们一样的人。所以让他们的事迹激励我们而不单单只是仰慕他们。

11. Remember to have fun. Or create fun in a task. Then you’ll stay motivated to do and finish it.

11.记得给自己找点乐子。或者在做事情的时候找点乐子。这样你就可以一直积极,直到完成它们。

12. Get out of your comfort zone. Face your challenges to get a real boost of motivation. If you are holding yourself back have a look at 5 Life-Changing Keys to Overcoming Your Fear and the methods in this article. They can help you get started and take that first scary step outside your comfort zone. 

12.走出你的舒适区。面对你的挑战,获得一种真正的激励。如果你总是退缩,那么就看看这篇文章里的:5个克服恐惧迎接生活挑战的关键和方法。它们能够帮助你跨出你的第一步。

13. Don’t fear failure. Instead redefine it as feedback and as a natural part of a successful life. As Michael Jordan said: 

13.不要害怕失败。而是把失败定义为一种反馈,是成就生活中的自然部分,就像麦克乔丹说的:

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” 

“我会想念我职业生涯中超过9000次的投射。我输过300场球,26次,我曾经被信任一定能够拿下胜赛分,但是我却失手了。在我的人生当中我不断的失败,失败,这就是为什么我能成功的原因。”

Also, try to find the valuable lesson(s) in each of your failures. Ask yourself: What can I learn from this?

同时,找到你每次失败中最有价值的部分。问自己:我能从中吸取什么经验教训呢?

14. Do some research on what you are about to do. Then your expectations will be more grounded in reality and you can also get good hints on what difficulties that you might run into along the way. Managing your expectations can lower the often almost explosive initial enthusiasm. But it can also lessen the lack of motivation that usually follows when most of that enthusiasm has dissipated. 

14.对于你即将要做的事情做些调查。这样你的期望就更能符合实际,你也可以更好的获得预感以及预测到一路上你会遇到的困难。保证你的期望能够低一点,这样就能激发最初的激情。但同时这样做有可能会减少你本来的低动机,这通常是在你的激情消散之后出现。

When you know what has happened to others in similar situations – what path they have walked – you can adapt and try their solutions (and personal variations of those) and your own. This makes the worries and challenges easier to handle. Both emotionally – since you know at least some of the things that will happen and that others have lived through it before – and practically.

当你了解在同样的情况下对于其他人发生了什么事情,即他们选择了哪种方法,你可以采取或者尝试他们的方法或者你自己的,但这也因人而异。这样做使得担忧和挑战更容易处理一些。就情感和实践两个方面来说:你至少知道有一些事情会发生,而另外一些事情你曾经经历过。

15. Figure out why you?′re doing something. If you don’t know or don’t have good enough reason to do something then it will be hard to get it done. Do things that you have really strong reasons to do. If you want to do something then figure out a good reason to do it. If you can’t find one consider dropping it and doing something that you have a good reason to do instead.

15.找出你做某件事情的原因。如果你不知道或者你没有一个足够的理由去做一件事情的话,你会很难完成这件事情。做事情要具备足够的理由。如果你想做成一件事情,那么就找出去执行它的合适理由。如果你不能找到一个理由去放弃或坚持这件事情的话,那么相反你就有足够的理由去坚持或着放弃。

16. Write down your goals and reasons for working towards them. Tape them on your wall, computer or bathroom mirror. Then you’ll be reminded throughout the day and it becomes easier to stay on track and stay focused.

16.写下你的目标还有追求的理由。把它们贴在你的墙上,电脑上或浴室的卫生间里。这样你全天就能记得,继而你也较容易坚持和专注于这个目标。

17. Take The Positivity Challenge! Learn to think more positively most of the time. Learn to let to go of negative threads of thought before they have a chance to take hold of you. You might not be able to be positive all the time no matter what happens. But I think most of us can improve on our positive thinking and the results it can lead us to. Perhaps more than you realize right now.

17.接受积极的挑战。学会在多数时候都进行积极思考。在消极思想占据你的内心的时候,学会释放它。不管发生什么事情,人不可能一直都能够乐观积极。但我觉得我们大部分都可以改进我们的积极思维还有引导我们的结果。也许你现在还意识不到这些。

18. Cut down on TV. Do you watch it too much? Watch less of what they are doing in TV-land and do more of what you want to do in life.

18.减少看电视的时间。你是否花太多的时间去看电视?少看一点电视里发生的事情,而是多做一些你在生活中想做的事情。

19. Break it down. Break down your task or project into small steps. And just start with focusing on that first small step. When you are done move on to the next and just focus on that one. The small successes will keep your motivation up and keeping your focus away from the big picture stops you from becoming overwhelmed and discouraged. It’s amazing how much you can get done if you follow this simple method.

19.分步骤。把你的任务和工程都分解成小部分。只是专注于最开始的一小步。等你完成之后再到下一步,然后专注于它。这小小的成就能够保持你的动力,保持你的专注力而不至于你看到了巨大任务的艰巨性之后感到精疲力尽和消极。如果你遵循了这个简易方法,就会惊奇的发现你完成了多少。

20. Reprogram your information intake. Program out negative and cynical thoughts from the media and society. Reduce your information intake. Then program in positive news and entertainment, more of your own thoughts and useful information such as personal growth tapes and books. Be selective and keep it positive.

20.重新调整你的输入信息。把从媒体和社会得知的一些愤世嫉俗和消极的想法清空出去。减少你接收的信息量。然后有意接收一些新闻和娱乐,更多你自己的想法和有益的信息如个人成长录像带还有书。保持选择权利,保持积极。

21. Make use of your creativity. Take out a piece of paper. Write at the top of the page what area in your life you would like to have more ideas about. Perhaps you want ideas to earn more money or become a healthier person. Then brainstorm until you have written down 20 ideas on that topic. Then try for 10 more. Not all ideas will be good. But some will. And as you make use of your creativity you not only discover useful ideas. You also discover just how creative you can be if you try and how motivating and great that feels. Have a look at 8 Ways to Spark Your Creativity for more ideas on this topic.

21.利用你的创造性。拿出一张纸。在纸的顶端写下你在人生中的哪个领域会有更多创造性的想法。也许你需要一些点子来挣更多的钱或者做更健康的自己。集思广益直到你写下了20个主题,然后再试着写下另外10个。不是所有的想法都是好的。但是有一些会是。当你积极利用你的创造力的时候,不但会发现有益的电子而且发现你自己是多么富有创造力,如果你可以尝试,同时你可以感受到倍受鼓舞。想知道更多创造性的知识请参考“激发你的创造性获得更多点子的8种方法”。

22. Find out what makes you happy. Then do that. As much as you want or can.

22.找出什么能让你快乐。尽力去做你想做你能做的。

23. Listen while you’re on the move. Build your own small library of motivational/personal development tapes. Listen to them while you are driving, riding the bus or your bike, while you are out running or walking. Take a peek at my recommended personal development products if you are looking for a good place to start.

23.步行的时候听录音。创建你个人动力发展的小型图书馆。当你在开车,坐公车还有骑自行车的时候听听它,或是当你跑步或者散步的时候。如果你正在寻找一个好地方开始创建你的个人动机发展录音的话,那么看看我的建议吧。

24. Think outside your box. Don’t imagine the future from the box of what you have now. Just because your mind is in box of previous experiences doesn’t mean that?′s the limits of the world. Your possibilities are much larger. Create the future from the now and from nothing rather than your past to experience bigger changes with fewer limitations than you would if you created it from what you can see from your box.

24.跳出常规思考。不要局限于你现在的环境去想象你的未来。只是因为你的脑袋是过去经历的一个载体不代表就是全世界。塑造的可能性很大,所以基于当下,基于一无所有的状态而不是过去来创造你的未来,在更大的空间里经历更大的改变,而不是基于你现在环境所拥有的东西去创造它。

25. Make each day count. We don’t have all the time in the world. So focus on today and do the things you really want to do.

25.珍惜每一天。我们不可能把握住在世界上的所有时间,所以专注于今天,做一些你真切想做的事情。
