(Motivational Video) There Is Nothing More Powerful Than A Changed Mind

Throughout your life, periodically, two questions will haunt you:

  1. Who am I?
  2. Why am I here?

I have found that these two questions become more distinguished as you get older.

Why, because we are beginning to understand the significance of our mortality. But sometimes all we need to do is change our minds. This Mindshift video drills into you, “There is nothing more powerful than a changed mind.”

By changing your mindset to believe with certainty in your potential, it gives you permission to take massive action. And that becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy of your success.

This video from Ping Pong Studio will give you the inspiration, as it did for me, to start believing in your potential and take massive action.

    Motivational videos like this always lifts my soul and my dedication intensifies. A changed mindset changes your life and positivity shows itself. That is why I’m starting to makes videos talking about bettering yourself and success because that is what life should be. No one else controls what we do, only we control ourselves. This power is inside all of us and it is unfortunate that most people remain unaware their whole lives. We must show others the right path so positivity can spread further, this is my current goal of my new videos.

    I love this video.

    The power of a changed mind is one of the strongest forces in the universe.

    All thought is creative and whatever you focus on daily and act on, you will get.

    Why spend years of your life working at something you don’t want? In just 10 years or less, which is a drop in the bucket compared to the industry leaders of old, you can completely revolutionize your life to create massive structural changes.

    Through today’s network of global successful people along with the internet, there has never been a better time to leave an outstanding mark.

    Hey Ramon,

    Very exciting video, but what stood out for me is – People are rewarded in public what they practiced for years in private. I think about a dodgy public speaker who is trying to wing it without any practice in comparison to a prepared speaker. Or a dancer who has practiced for hours and hours to glide across the stage effortlessly. And it always makes me work harder and stronger.

    Be relentless – don’t lose focus. Thanks for a wonderful, uplifting and motivational video. Today I am going to knock out some great work because I watched this. And I practice everyday, everyday, everyday!

      That is the exact same line that stood out for me as well. I am a suicide-attempt survivor and prior to my attempt all others saw was this happy-go-lucky individual who appeared fearless. Little did they know. Still now it is a daily effort to keep practicing to keep going (so to speak)….public speaking is my passion…this video reminded me that it is my private struggle that will keep my devotion to public speaking an ongoing goal. Thanks

    This was a very inspiring and motivating video. I love watching videos like these. The empowering words spoken here mixed with the music makes me want to get up and take action in my life, We must realize that what we accomplish in this life was based upon our belief system and what we believed we could accomplish. We must change our minds if we want to change our worlds and I am a firm believer in that. Thanks for sharing this empowering video!

“I’m a born failure. There is no way I can get that job. I can’t carry that dress off – I’m too fat. Why do these things happen to me? Why am I so unlucky?” Are your conversations with yourself along these lines? Do you find yourself reprimanding yourself every time you make a mistake or wallowing in self-pity? (more…)

How many times have we wished to be in the shoes of a billionaire? People often daydream of having a ten digit bank account, and what they’d be doing with it. In an instant, we’d picture luxury yachts, extravagant sports cars, the finest wine and jewellery, and a whole lot of things which are difficult to pronounce. It is truly difficult to separate wealth and luxury. (more…)

Do you watch documentaries on lions? If yes, then you must have seen that they dominate their territory and are apex predators. Lions are among the strongest animals in the world, and no one dares to confront or challenge them. They are called ‘kings’ because they have a touch of royalty in everything they do. From eating habits where 20-25 royal members dine at the same to conquering huge lands. A lion always has a bold attitude and lives like a true ruler. (more…)

The Guide to Staying Motivated While Working Alone

Published

how to stay motivated when working alone

Working alone at home might sound like a nightmare to some, but as a fully signed up introvert, working alone at home is an absolute dream. No energy-draining small talk, no noisy distractions, just peace and quiet to complete deep and focused work. Well not quite. Working alone at home has more challenges than you might expect. Boredom, lack of focus and lack of motivation to name a few.

When you start working for yourself, you quickly realise that one of the biggest problems you face isn’t the job itself. Maintaining your motivation poses a potentially huge difficulty. Much of that difficulty stems from working alone, rather than in a traditional office setting. There is also the challenge of staying focused on the task at hand. With no boss or supervisor looking over your shoulder, social media can distract or cat videos interrupt you.

But the greatest problem by far is a simple lack of motivation. There doesn’t seem to be a pressing need to finish this project right now, making it far too easy to put it off until later. Left unchecked, a lack of motivation can cripple the work you are trying to accomplish. Over the past few years I’ve developed a few go-to tactics to improve my lone working motivation.

Here are some of the tools I’ve used to stay motivated and on-task.

These first few tips focus on using different tweaks in your personal work schedule to provide some variety and maintain your focus.

1. Include short breaks

My eye doctor once told me that for every 20 minutes of staring at a computer screen, you should look away and focus on something across the room for 20 seconds. This gives your eyes a chance to reset. Do something similar with the rest of your body; don’t just look across the room, walk, jog, or run across the room. Give your body a break, and try to reset your thoughts. If you don’t have the discipline to take regular breaks, use an app to remind you.

2. Block out an afternoon for social activities and networking

Set aside one afternoon a week for your social life. Friday afternoon works best for me. If you feel guilty about not working, think of it as a chance to network. Either way, be sure to spend this section of time with other people. Socialise and network.

3. View your personal schedule as your work schedule

A 9-to-5 job requires getting up every morning, preparing for the day, leaving the house, and commuting to your workplace. In other words, it requires going to work. You want to recreate the same rhythm at home. You may not actually need to leave your house in order to work, but try to stick with the schedule. Filling the old job timeslot with your new work helps to keep you motivated – you can’t clock out early!

These next few tips are little things you can do to trick yourself into staying focused!

1. Music

This tip may sound cliché, but try listening to an upbeat song loudly whenever you feel unmotivated. It’s a simple trick, but a surprisingly effective one!

2. Have somewhere else to work for a change of scenery

When procrastination sets in, sometimes a quick change of scenery is all you need. If you work at home, going to your favourite café can be a huge help. Other freelancers I know have even gone so far as to hire office space outside the home, and rotate between the two to help stay on-task.

3. Love what you do

This is arguably the most critical point on the whole list. If you don’t love what you do, it will be hard to keep yourself motivated – particularly long-term. Sure, you may be able to push on through sheer force of will for a while, but sooner or later you’ll lose motivation entirely. Do something you genuinely enjoy, and you’ll find it much easier to stick with it for the long haul.

These last few tips are Industry-related!

1. Make sure you have fun projects

Not all of your work projects will be fun, but fight to make at least a couple of them fun. These might even be personal side projects, not particularly related to your main job. Or they might be in the same general field, but not your specific focus.

2. Attend industry events a couple of times a year

Nearly every imaginable industry has an organising body of some kind. Find the local branch, and use it to keep tabs on industry-related events. Attend some seminars, network, and maybe even glean some new tips and tricks from industry insiders.

3. Schedule at least one call a week to learn something within your industry

View this as an opportunity for personal development. At least once a week, try to learn something new about your industry. For me, this might mean calling a new tool provider to demonstrate their gadgets. Whatever your industry, try to expand your horizons a little bit every week. You’ll learn new methods and make new connections at the same time.

These tips worked for me, hopefully, some of them will help you out as well. Above all, strive to enjoy what you do, stick to a “work schedule,” and look for opportunities for constant self-improvement. With those ideas in mind, you’ll find staying motivated much easier to do alone or in a group!
