6 Motivational Ways to Activate Your Beast Mode

beast mode

In a world that is moving fast, life is passing by whilst everyone is living in the moment. Those dream crippling moments will come where you wish you had prepared more properly, accomplished something, wanting to feel more accepted, perfect; intelligent, skilful and complete. The truth is you have to grind and hustle to make it where you want to be.

We have come to learn that there isn’t perfection but life will give you another meaning. Let’s put some drive into life. Prepare both mentally and physically to activate that inner power. Eventually limits will be broken by keeping at hand tools that will provide you with relentless form of energy in pursuit of your dreams. Welcome to beast mode.

Here are 6 ways to activate beast mode:

1. Stand tall and make your declaration

Seeing is believing, so make it reality by committing to your goals so that you won’t be going through life aimlessly. The majority of people do not do this and thus dreams become abandoned so always aim higher. The answer is simple, do what you love and believe you are worthy. Drop the false dreams. Evoke a spiritual journey by reminding yourself on why you started but also seeing how far you’ve come.  

It will provoke you to tackle goal after goal and trigger achievement after achievement. This helps you build momentum and a clear drive so that you can become unstoppable. Once it’s written, make it happen. Unleash the shackles of doubts; stay hungry and go after what you want.  Wake up the beast.

“Both desire and imagination are stored in the mind of the individual and when stretched, both have the potential to position a person for greatness.” – Eric Thomas

2. A killer workout

A strong mind, body and soul will overcome anything. Diet and regular physical activity is important to maintain a balance between work and life. A major benefit of physical activity is to increase those energy levels, self- esteem and attitude, which can help everything else in life seem much easier. Whether it’s sport, lifting weights or running, build schedules and workout plans around your daily routine.

This will build confidence in channeling your inner beast and recognize your limits. Psych yourself up to give you a mental edge because it is a great sensation in ending the day like a champion. You’ll be left wanting more. Train the beast.

3. Energy boost with motivational videos

Watching motivational videos changed my life because they improved my outlook and mind-set; a positive one. I would make it spontaneous at first and then it became routine, morning, afternoon and evening. The messages would strike a chord within me and lift me up. I would take the messages and reflect on it and use it in my life.  Every step, decision and action would be driven by hunger and positive vibes. Feed the beast!

Check out my two favourite videos on YouTube:

1. It’s not over until you win! Your dream is possible: My favorite motivational speaker – Les Brown

2. Unbroken: The best I’ve seen. When we go through life we will suffer some sort of failure and when you are defeated it takes courage to go again.


4. Be adaptable to change

How will you cope with set-backs? Will you rise to the occasion? Flexible people tend to adapt and go with the flow, naturally being able to think of solutions to their problems, whilst rigid people just give up. Throughout life you will have been built on a behavioural script, taught certain things or ideas. This will result in you living on somebody else terms and not yours.

So step away from the average crowd. The willingness to get out of these models will enable you to adapt to new surroundings. Learn to survive because life sometimes hits hard and the lessons you take from them makes the difference between being successful and unsuccessful. Beast must learn to survive and rise.

5. Patiently hunt for the prey

Lions are well known to stalk their prey from cover to cover being phenomenally patient with a final burst of speed at the end. This personifies the desire, strength and power in pursuit of its goal. Likewise in life there are tremendous opportunities out there for you so be patient whilst the fire of desire burns inside you; strengthen yourself physically and mentally.  When the right moment arrives, eye it up and prepare for victory. Beast patiently waits.

“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.” – Leo Tolstoy

6. Remind yourself of the legacy you want to leave

How do you want to be remembered in life? Many will talk about the hero you were, the one who never gave up. Show others the traits of a true warrior. Inspire others that your roar was as big as your dreams. Heads will turn to see an example of success. Beast must not only be the best for self but lead by example.

All my childhood, I studied hard and got good grades because I was motivated to escape my mother’s disappointment and wrath on failure. Others in my class were motivated by their desire to excel and get into a good college. Still, others were doing it to maintain their social status and to be recognized as excellent students. The word “motivation” holds a different meaning for different people, as what motivates you may not be sufficient for me and vice versa.  (more…)

Motivation is something we all strive to have, but can also be one of those feelings that’s hard to keep. Whether we’re attempting to reach a new fitness goal or trying to stay motivated in our role at work, sometimes that motivation just isn’t there. You feel motivated for a while – you’ll listen to podcasts, read books, keep yourself accountable – but then it’s lost. You feel so much energy at the start, then feel yourself slowly losing that inspiration. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. (more…)

8 Things You Can Do Right Now to Get Your Motivation Back

Published

Welcome to our new normal. A time in our lives that a year ago we certainly didn’t see coming that most of us probably wouldn’t have chosen for ourselves; but here we are. As the days away from each other carry on and more and more bad news comes our way, it’s easy to lose your motivation and waste energy doing things that aren’t helpful like worrying and fighting with people on the internet instead.

Nearly half of Americans report the coronavirus crisis is harming their mental health, according to the Washington Post. While many of us had routines set up to deal with stress in the past, the stress we are facing during this time is unlike anything we’ve experienced before. It’s easy to find yourself in a downward spiral, and that’s the most challenging time to stop the momentum and turn things around. If that’s the case, keep it simple and start to reach for little things to help you feel better and climb your way out.

Here’s a reminder of a few simple things you can do right now to start getting positive momentum going your way:

1. Find someone who was in a similar place and made it to the other side

Whether you’ve been unmotivated to workout, eat healthy, make sales calls or simply do anything, you can find someone who has been there and made it to the other side. Look up some great TED talks, go on YouTube and look up people that motivate you, google them to find their websites. There are short speeches and much longer talks all over the internet, you just need to find someone who you relate to that speaks to you.

2. Do something that you love

When we’re unmotivated, it’s easy to get out of the habit of doing what we love. Sometimes just getting out of bed or away from the tv feels like a chore. Think back to a time in your life when you felt great – what were you doing? What do you absolutely love to do that if you had the time, you would do all day and not realize any time had passed at all? 

Figure out a way to do whatever that is, or a modified version of it if it is something that you aren’t able to do at the present time. Spending time doing what you love will get your mind off of anything that is wrong and allow you to find inspiration.

“If something is important enough, even if the odds are stacked against you, you should still do it.” – Elon Musk

3. Don’t overcomplicate it

Keep it simple. When we’re stuck in a rut, we’ll give ourselves every excuse to not do something. Say you’ve gained some weight; you might tell yourself you need to find the perfect trainer and wait until you have time to cook your meals from scratch each night before you do anything else. Stop trying to overcomplicate it and keep it simple by finding one thing you can do right now, however small that may be. You don’t have to wait until the timing is perfect and the stars align for you to start moving in the direction you want to go.  

4. Get up and get moving

This is probably the last thing you want to do right now, but once you are up and moving, your blood will start flowing. The hardest part is getting started. Day one, get up and do anything to get moving. This is the hardest day if you haven’t in a while because getting up is really the hardest part. Day two, do a little more. Once you start, you’ll build momentum and get back in the habit.

5. Reset your focus

It’s so easy for worry to set in and for our minds to wander to places of what we can’t control. This is not motivating or helpful and we always have a choice to redirect our attention. There is always something we can do right where we are, so bring your focus to the solution instead of the problem and figure out the next step of what you can do. 

One step at a time. Step one, take your attention away from what you can’t control and what you can’t do. Step two, ask yourself questions like “What can I do?” and see what comes to mind. Follow through with the answers you find.

6. Listen to your favorite music

Not much can lift our spirits and put us into a positive vibration more than our favorite music. Feel free to sing along. Find a song that pumps you up and make that your theme song. Put it on anytime you feel down or unmotivated.

7. Expand your knowledge

“In times of change, the learners will inherit the Earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.” Quote by Eric Hoffer. In times of change, there is great loss but also great opportunity. Continually learning opens you to new opportunities and leads you to paths you may not have otherwise found.  

“Work like there is someone working twenty four hours a day to take it away from you.” – Mark Cuban

8. Meditate

If you’re already a meditator and got away from it, take some time to come back to it. If you’ve never tried, it can be as easy as setting a timer for five minutes (or less, feel free to start with one or two minutes) and focusing on your breath. Listen to the inhalations and exhalations. Silently say to yourself “in” as you inhale and “out” as you exhale. Even taking a few minutes to do this can help you to calm down and allow your mind to refocus.

When we’re unmotivated, our momentum starts moving in the other direction. Slow down that momentum by trying one of the ideas above. Once you’ve slowed down the momentum, get it moving in the right direction and you’ll be well on your way.
