5 Tips To Sow The Seed Of Desire Within Yourself

The journey of life is amazing. The one who gets success is always praised by saying that he is lucky and the one who faces failures in life and is disappointed is considered to be unlucky in life.

This is all we can know about both. But do you ever wonder the reason why that successful person reached the top of the ladder of success and why the other one is still disappointed because of failure and always remains to be. The reason behind both of them is a single world “DESIRE“.

Have you ever tried to search out what this desire is all about? How it is developed and how it functions? Well, today I am going to enrich you all with this knowledge.

Desire can be termed as an inner power that makes us do whatever is possible in this world to fulfill the aim. Actually most of the time we misinterpret our needs with desire. So, lets find out the different things you can adopt in your daily life to sow the seed of desire and achieve whatever you want in your life.

“The starting point of all achievement is desire.” – Napoleon Hill

1. Think positive

Most people focus on what bad can happen with them instead of getting concerned about what the positive aspect is. Every task/activity has two results: positive results or negative results. So in any case, just focus on what’s positive in the experience and how it can be utilized for a better tomorrow.

This is not a one day task. So, you need to maintain patience and need to mold your mind such that it always takes into consideration only the positive aspect of the happenings. As soon as you make this activity a habit, you will start visualizing positive results from yourself.

 

2. Exercise daily

A healthy mind nourishes a healthy body which results in strong willpower to conquer the world. So, always
supplement your daily routine with at-least half an hour of Yoga or physical exercise which keeps your mind healthy and active all day.

If you are within an age group of 40 plus or somehow you are not able to add physical exercise within your daily routine, then it is advised to replace the physical exercise with yoga which includes pranayam, meditation, etc. However, yoga and meditation can do amazing things for all age groups.

3. Work on small victories

Keep this point in mind that small victories lead to bigger ones. So set your milestones at small
distance. The formula is that with every small success, you will get more energy in reaching a milestone and with that energy, you can move-on to another and then another and so on. At last success will be yours.

Actually this is human psychology that when human beings set bigger milestones, and work hard to achieve them, they start finding it difficult to go through the tough times. In the case of setting small milestones, they tend to set a mentality that pushes them through to complete this milestone as soon as possible. With that energy and charm on their faces, the milestone is completed successfully which in return energizes them even more and ignites them to work even more harder to reach the second milestone.

 

4. Always be inspired

You can go through any source of media, every successful person has an inspirational person within their life. So from that we draw this point that we all must have a role model or mentor that you can emulate. Your idol can always inspire you to work hard and achieve the desired goal. Mahatma Gandhi, Swami Vivekananda, Rabindranath Tagore, Nelson Mandela are a few of the inspirational role models which can be selected. It’s up to you to choose your role model based on the field you want to succeed into.

“Desire! That’s the one secret of every man’s career. Not education. Not being born with hidden talents. Desire.” – Bobby Unser

5. Repeat success mantras

Do you know that if you repeat a dialogue continuously throughout a single day, the next day you will find that you are getting personality somewhat similar related to that dialogue. Science has proved that if you repeat a line for a whole day, your mind and heart takes it into consideration and starts acting on those words.

So I suggest you to repeat a simple mantra for nearly 30-40 times in a day. It will drastically change the way you see your life and will start acting accordingly. The mantra is “Yes I can Do It. I have the WILLPOWER to achieve my GOAL.”

 

With these simple steps, you can makeover your mind and change it to a machine which is ready to face any sort of failure and achieve the goal.

So, Finally are you ready to conquer this world?

    You are absolutely correct. The one thing that helps up achieve success in any area of our life is desire, but also action. Desire is the first the we need though that is going to determine how passionate and determined we are in our actions. I really like the postive thinking, exercise, and mantra things you suggested. I actually started repeated mantras every morning and it has helped me on my path in life. Great post.

    i will definitely reffer to this to keep me going. I need to remember to not always think of the final goal but of the small victories I need to make. Will Smith said once, don’t set out to build the biggest, baddest, greatest wall. Start laying each brick as perfectly as it can be laid, and soon, you’ll have a wall.

    Hey Ravinder, some nice tips to help anyone stay motivated. It’s true that desire is the starting point for achievement, but I must add that such desire must be tempered with patience otherwise it will cause you to be frustrated which will delay the results you want from showing up.

    Great blog, keep the good stuff coming…

3 Simple Hacks That Can Recharge Your Willpower and Help You Perform Better at Work

Published

How many times did you wake up feeling like you could conquer the world? You set ambitious goals for the day, you put on your best attire and walked out the door with a big smile on your face but eventually, life took over. Traffic, emails, work, family, and everything else you have around slowly but steadily started to drain your energy and made you feel exhausted.

You run out of battery, and the only solution that seemed viable was to rely on more caffeine. When that stopped working, all the temptations around you started to look much more appealing, and that sense of drive and commitment you had before slowly faded away. This is you running out of willpower.

Willpower: what is it? Why is it limited?

The American Psychology Association describes willpower as “the ability to resist short-term temptations in order to meet long-term goals.” In the book “The Willpower Instinct”, Dr. Kelly McGonigal, explains how every person’s willpower is limited, and slowly depletes throughout the day. The more “willpower challenges” you face, the quicker your reserve drains. Dr. McGonigal divided the different types of willpower challenges you might encounter in three categories:

  • I will: We face this type of challenge whenever we should do something, but we simply don’t feel like getting it done right now.
  • I won’t: We face this challenge when we try to resist temptation, or we try to keep cool in stressful situations.
  • I want: This is a particular type of challenge where we keep track of our long term goals, dreams, and desires. In this instance, we feel like we should take action right now to come one step closer to the goal. 

It’s easy to recognize it when you face a willpower challenge because you literally “feel it in your body.” Imagine being really hungry and walking in front of a bakery. The sight and the smell of pastries quickly triggers an “I won’t” type of challenge, and it takes a severe amount of effort and energy to walk away.

Every time you manage to win one of those challenges, a little bit of your willpower reserve gets used. The more challenges you face daily, the harder it will be to stay true to your goals.

Can you train or recharge your willpower?

A growing body of research suggests that willpower should be considered a muscle. To strengthen it, you should exercise it regularly, but you should not overwork it. Therefore, we shouldn’t try to “be good” at all times. Instead, we should learn how to relax and recharge our willpower.

The general advice on how to improve willpower involves sleep, proper nutrition, and regular exercise. This broad and general recommendation is often not downright applicable by most, because it consists of changing various daily habits. Luckily, three very effective hacks have been discovered, that have an immediate effect on our willpower and take just a few minutes to apply.

Here are the 3 ways to refill your willpower reserves:

1. Focused breathing

Breathing, when done correctly, can stimulate the release of calming hormones while reducing the release of stress hormones like cortisol and catecholamines. To make this effective, you should deeply and slowly inhale through the nose for at least five seconds. Fill your belly with air first, then your chest, and when there’s no more space for air, still try to do tiny inhalations through the nose.

You should feel a pulling sensation around your neck and trapezius muscles. Once your lungs are full, try to hold the breath for five seconds, then slowly exhale through the mouth for at least five seconds. If you repeat this process ten to twenty times, you should feel dramatically more relaxed. Use this method several times a day, especially when you’re experiencing high levels of stress or anxiety.

2. Reward yourself when you accomplish a micro goal

According to a recent study, frequent instant rewards can boost motivation, and therefore, willpower. Creating your own reward system can help you to accomplish your to-do list, and also resist temptations. Since every individual has different tastes, you should come up with creative ideas about the small and frequent rewards you will give yourself upon winning any willpower challenge.

You can see this hack in practice in Apps like the popular Duolinguo, where after completing each lesson you get presented with a chance to open a treasure chest. This rewarding system seems to keep the users much more likely to keep learning new lessons.

3. Taking cold showers

Your body has an autonomic response to cold water. Getting into a cold shower is a difficult (but minor) willpower challenge on its own. As I previously mentioned, winning a willpower challenge strengthens your willpower muscle. Having a morning cold shower, on top of having multiple health benefits, will set you up for a positive winning streak of further challenges.

High performance is the sum of many small habits. Successful people don’t have an unlimited reserve of willpower, but they do have a set of daily rituals that made them succeed. These three hacks are some of the most effective techniques to develop willpower, but some of them may not fit every individual. You should try to find the perfect mix of daily practices that best fits your lifestyle and likes, so that you can strengthen your willpower muscle and perform better at work.
