The path to personal and financial success always starts from the bottom of a mountain, metaphorically speaking. During the training scene of Rocky IV, Sylvester Stallone’;s character, Rocky Balboa, veered off the beaten path and started the long journey up a steep mountain; His main purpose is to strengthen body body and prepare his mind to beat his opponent, Drago. He knew that if he made it to the top of the peak, he could beat his opponent. That was Rocky’;s motivation that propelled him to greatness as he accomplished the unthinkable. Nobody thought that Rocky could beat his opponent because of his size and body strength, but as he cooked on, he won the boxing match and gained the respect of Drago and the Russian people. I will show you the techniques of self-improvement, so that you can gain the positive motivations for success.
Many of us have dreams of becoming rich or famous, owning big homes with lots of land, taking long vacations to escape the rat race; for me, my dream is to get my family out of debt, get the family farm up and running gain, and have enough money to pay for flight school and get my bachelors in aviation science. This is my motivation and ambition, to make sure that my wife and children are well-taken care of; how about you, the reader? What are some of your dreams and aspirations?
If you are having trouble figuring out what you would like to become or foresee yourself in the future, let me share some important tips that will help you get going:
1. Get out a piece of paper or start-up. If it’;s your dream to become a Doctor, then write your goals on what you need to do to fulfill your dreams. There will be naysayers that will come up and try to discourage you, do not listen to them, protect your dream at all cost. I want you to put on your thinking caps for a moment and ponder the run that Rocky made up the mountain side; Did he get up when he met a steep wall of rock? Did wintery weather hinder his progress as he envisioned his goal? No.
2. Write down goals that are simple and easy to carry out. Did Balboa make the attempt to run up the mountain first? No, he did not, he had to prepare himself by doing the basic, simple exercises to build his muscles by jump roping, running, push ups, and movements that simulated regular exercise machines. A math professor at Idaho State University once told the class that if we wanted to become mathematicians, we needed to have a solid foundation of the basic math principles if we are to succeed in the math program at ISU, if we did not, we would failure. When writing your goals, make them simple, then work your way up until you become successful.
3. The last process to gain success is to have some type of item or picture that will motivate and help you to remember why you have started working on your dream. For me, it is a picture of my wife and children because they deserve the very best things that will bring comfort and happiness. Here are some other ideas that you can use for your motivation:
These are just some examples that you can use for pictures that will motivate you to fulfill your dream.
In conclusion, I hope that you will use these techniques for self-improvement as it will help you develop those positive motivations for success.
