Motivational Speaking is about reconditioning the mind’s reaction to ‘pain’ by promoting focus on the higher objective via audio stimuli.
Hundreds of thousands of years of evolution has conditioned our nervous system to be naturally averse to pain. Pain here doesn’t necessarily mean ‘physical’ pain.
In fact, the practical expression of ‘pain’ in our life has more to do with the emotional and psychological aspects of pain perception. People tend to avoid activities that give them stress, worry and uncertainty. Most people tend to pick up careers that can merely help them ‘get by’ in life. Most people put the reward of their immediate comfort over long term rewards such as greater security and better lifestyle.
They tend to aspire for a lifestyle that doesn’t challenge them, hang out with peers who don’t challenge their point of view and eat foods that taste good but are unhealthy for their body and mind.
Most people don’t realize that their inability to be hard on themselves, to judge themselves objectively and to analyze their mistakes and shortcomings, is what is taking them further and further away from their ‘dream’.
You cannot be motivated to give your best in one area of your life and be less than mediocre in other areas. Achievers take their life seriously. They take their goals and their daily routine seriously. Sure, life is meant to be enjoyed but not at the cost of achieving your highest potential.
Employee Motivation is one of the biggest challenges corporates face in the current market scenario.
“If only my team was more motivated, I would be able to achieve our quarterly targets more often.” laments Vikram Singh (name changed for privacy), Area Sales Manager, Tech Mahindra.
“When I first started, this was the best job I could’ve dreamt of. At 25, fresh out of IIM, I had my whole life in front of me, TCS was the best IT company in the market at the time and I had an office bigger than my first home. Then over the years, somewhere I feel the routine and the same old story just got to me and I seriously don’t know why I work this job anymore. Yes I have bills to pay and a lifestyle to support but I don’t feel motivated to come to office at all. Even at that, the company provides me an option to work from home. This was also very good at first but now it seems that my office and all its troubles and demotivation has crept into my home. I sometimes feel I’ve gone in depression..” says Kamaljit Singh (name changed for privacy), VP Systems, TCS overseas.
If only more people could experience the sheer satisfaction of being dedicated and committed to their life goals and the subsequent success that comes with it, they would look at ‘pain’ from a different perspective.
Most of the time, the reason people feel demotivated is not because they’ve been doing too much. It’s because they’ve been doing too little of what they love.
The thing to understand here is if you don’t fix this mentality in time, pretty soon you will launch into a downwards spiral of unproductivity. This will then lead you to overcompensate by working more and doing less and less of the things you love.
In the final stage, you will lose interest in everything. Everything!
You don’t know beyond that point, how things will turn out. Believe me, I have seen High Court Lawyers and UCLA post grads, escaping life and living permanently in a monastery!!!
Everyone is going to fall at some point or another. The thing is, if you keep falling down and stop trying to get up, do you think you will ever get up?
The solution lies in reconditioning your perspective towards the challenges you face.
Great sportsmen like Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni, Milkha Singh, Dhyan Chand, Pele, Michael Phelps all attribute their successes to their mental strength, concentration and emotional endurance. All of them came from humble backgrounds and worked their way up to the top. You may not be the most talented but if you can develop a positive attitude towards ‘pain’, no one can stop you.
And the list goes on.
Great entrepreneurs like Jack Ma, Dhirubhai Ambani and Steve Jobs, all came from humble backgrounds and endured countless struggles; emotional, psychological and financial, before they were finally able to realize their vision.
Great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel, APJ Abdul Kalam, Maharana Pratap, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Peter the Great, Lenin.. all braved immense personal, financial, emotional, psychological pressures in almost all areas of their lives until they were finally able to realize their vision for humanity.
Motivational speaking is about jolting people awake to the reality of their life and the amount of effort it will require to reach their goals.
