Getting motivated by music and motivational speeches work. But another “out-of-the-box-of-trash” way to motivate yourself is by educating yourself.
I learned this strategy from a friend of mine that has a Hawaii house cleaner business. While she was self employed in her own business, she listened to 100’s of hours of non-fiction, business, and self help audiobooks or videos on Youtube. Not only it was a great use of time, but she found that is motivated her, not only on the job, but to push herself more to grow and reach her ultimate goals.
I’ve tried it myself and it surprised me. Initially, I thought it was going to be counterintuitive, that listening to a book would slow me down. I don;t know why, but gaining the knowledge from what I was listening to just boosted me up!

Along with knowing yourself, you need to find your strengths. Finding your strengths will allow you to leverage and position yourself to be as effective as you can be and fighting less resistance to where you want to go and be.
In terms of sports and games for examples:
And so on.

If you want to succeed in games, sports and/or life, you need to know what you are working with and the tools that you have.
The main and only “tool” that you really need is…yourself.
There’s no one in this universe like you. You are unique in every way. Your DNA, experiences, knowledge, life lessons learned, interests, passion, etc., all make up who you are. All of these things are elements to an equation that makes up the product of you.

I like to to use motivation videos to get motivated. That is my secret to motivation as I’ve mentioned in my previous post. But the thing is, it’s not just my opinion. Words do manifest things. It may seem like some “new age” metaphysical mantra, but it has been scientifically proven of how words and thoughts can physically mold matter. (See Dr. Masaru Emoto’s work, research, and findings.)
Anyway, listening to motivational speeches gives you the extra “umph” to get going and strive 10x harder to achieve whatever it is that you want to achieve.
Try it out. It was pretty interesting that our limo bus driver did the same thing to motivate himself as well. And it was also surprising that he was the owner of the company!
Hey, I guess it works. Here’s a motivational video read more
When most people want to get motivated for whatever reason they tend to find it in music. It’s a good way to get motivated, but it’s not the most effective.
Most people choose their motivation music by the beat, rhythm, or instrumental of the songs. The fast rhythms and tempo of a song may get people’s hearts pumping and influencing the body. But what most people don’t realize is that the lyrics and/or words spoken in a song is as, maybe even more, influential to people’s motivation than just the beat.
Words are very powerful. Words can become things. So, you can imagine what manifestations arise, or lack there of, from listening to so called “motivational” tracks talking about killing people, sex, gang banging, drugs, etc.
Words, lyrics, and text can have a subliminal influence on the mind. So, the secret to motivation is to listen to motivational music, talks, and/or speeches.
When I was in Hawaii for a business seminar/conference, our business mentor played a motivational video for us (shown below) while we were transporting to the hotel in a beautiful luxury Oahu Party Bus. After the video, everyone had a read more
In today’s generation, instant gratification is the theme to life. The “I want it now”, mentality seems to be the common sense mindset. It’s evident in today’s lifestyles with instant messaging, drugs for that instant “feel good” high, diet pills, supplements, the lottery in the hopes of becoming an instant millionaire, instant microwavable foods, the list goes on.
We now live in a world where if patience does not bring results in the first try, it does’t and will not work and on to the next venture.
People will take shortcuts in attempts to get the desired outcome and to succeed quickly and easily. But, little do majority of the people knowread more
