After setting goals I always felt clear-headed and it allowed me to be motivated to attain my goal. Success came quickly and everyone around enjoyed the new me and everything was going upwards. At last, I’m on the right track I thought.

Then weeks later something gradual happens, my mood starts changing, my energy starts becoming more lethargic, doubt enters the mind, depression hits me, people around me lose trust in my message. What’s going on?

Then the two words that have saved my life enter my mind. MENTAL UPDATE. This is not the sexiest phrase to hear in the world. But it was vital for me to calibrate my mind to move forward again.

The problem that always held me back was,

  • Not resetting the bar of where to go next
  • Not looking at what I’ve actually achieved
  • Comparing my progress to others

With this internal information coming to the surface of my thoughts.

To give me peace of mind I got to work to find a system I could use to stay on an upward curve of my intrinsic motivation. As well as listening to my subconscious mind if signals I could start picking upon.

Below is what I discovered that can help you regain your intrinsic motivation to succeed.

Unlocking The Mind Through Mediation

It’s well known now that meditation can have profound effects on the mind. You have to look no further than a Buddhist monk on the extraordinary discipline and control they have.

Meditation is a learned skill that takes many hours of practice to master or at least in my case still on my journey to mastery.

The reason for meditation was to keep my self-motivation in the mind motivated and on an upward curve. Meditation is a great way for your thoughts to flow out. The reason why it can be difficult to see the downward curve of intrinsic motivation is that my mind can be always busy.

Busy with work, raising children, family, bills etc. The non-stop barrage of always having something to do can stop the subconscious mind from opening into the conscious mind.

Meditation, helped a lot with understanding the feelings I felt, what I needed to do next in my life and what’s actually upsetting me. Immediately after meditating, I would write these thoughts into a journal and got to work on fixing any issues. This helps to change your motivation back into an upward curve motion. Once the problems are fixed. The meditation classes return to a clear mind until the next problems surface from the subconscious minds.

There are many strategies to meditating that you can find on apps and online. For me, it helped by being in solitude and meditating using the breathwork technique of square breathing. Then slowly letting my mind enter deep meditation. I schedule a 30-minute slot to do it but I never time myself and will only come out of it when I’m ready. This for me stops the mind from worrying about time and stays focus.

Unlocking Your Subconscious Mind To Succeed

The subconscious mind is such a powerful friend. It works behind the scenes to allow us to breathe, heal our wounds, stores all our memory’s and everything we have learned. The problem we have is the conscious mind being able to access the information when we need it.

For answering the title of the article, how to unlock motivation to succeed within the mind. Tapping into your subconscious is of importance to find a solution.

Here’s a list of 3 techniques you can apply today,

  • Having time to be silent to listen to your thoughts
  • Asking yourself a series of questions to unlock the answers you seek
  • Write it all down and then analyse the data to find solutions of action

These techniques above helped me stop and take notice of myself and what needed to change in order to regain my motivation to succeed.

After just writing an article The Surprising Benefits Of Journaling Has On The Mind it would be rude not to include it here. Unlocking your motivation can be powerfully done with a pen and some paper. The form of writing that is journaling is like God speaking down to humans to write religious literature.

The same principle applies here as your subconscious mind is the all-powerful being and your conscious mind is the human who writes down what the subconscious tells us.

Journaling helps so many people in many different ways. To regain my intrinsic motivation it helped to write down all the problems I have in my life, the feelings I feel and the worry I have. Writing them down lifts a weight from you. Which if left untreated can cause serious damage to your motivation.

With all my subconscious thoughts flooding the paper. It’s important now to find a way out. By creating solutions to everything you have written down. This can guide you on the journey you must undertake in your development. I create, to-do list, vision boards, a road map etc. Whatever is best for you, design it and execute it.

Every week or month touch base with the subconscious mind and journal again.

  1. What a really great post. I’ve been doing a meditation journal to tackle my mind, feelings and plans. I feel much calmer and more in ‘control’ of my subconscious patterns. I believe it’s a must when we keep ‘falling off’ the track. Thanks for sharing!
