Must learn to be self-motivated in life
Incentive is the yearning, pursuit and hope of people for good things. It can stimulate strength, stimulate wisdom and inspire morale.
If there is no incentive, there will be no learning, and there will be no corresponding behavior and good results.
For anyone, life needs motivation, and learning needs more motivation.
A novelist in the United States wrote a novel called “The Last Leaf.”
It is said that a young artist has suffered from severe pneumonia and his life is in danger.
She looked at the leaves outside the window and fell, desperately feeling that her illness would never get better again.
She believes that when the last leaf falls, she will die alone.
And the last leaf may be blown away by the wind at any time in the cold wind.
A common leaf holds the life of an artist.
A kind-hearted painter drew a leaf that would not fall in the cold wind.
With this leaf, the young man finally gave birth to hope and defeated the disease.
Without this leaf containing motivation and hope, she is likely to be taken away by the disease to a fragile life.
Although this is a novel, it scientifically reflects the important role of motivation in the vitality of human beings.
American psychologist Rosenthal once went to a middle school. After talking with some of his classmates, he circled several names on the student list and told the teacher that these students are very talented and have a great future.Among them, there are eugenics, poor students, and ordinary students, which are randomly circled.
After listening to Rosenthal’s words, the teacher increased his confidence and the students also had new hopes.
After one time, Rosenthal came to this middle school again and found that all his students had made great progress.
It turns out that Rosenthal used the principle of motivation to arouse the confidence of students and make them produce the power of progress.
This is the famous Rosenthal effect in the history of educational psychology.
The power of motivation has received a lot of strong evidence.
A patient in the United States has cancer and is seriously ill.
At this point she has suspected that her only wish is to be able to give birth to a child before the cancer conquers her life.
The child in the belly is her greatest hope, giving her great encouragement and tremendous strength.
For the sake of her children, she struggled with the disease.
She finally waited for the birth of the child.
After the child is born, she is more motivated – she wants to raise the child and let the child grow up.
Later, the miracle appeared, and her cancerous tumor gradually narrowed down and finally disappeared completely.
The power of motivation gradually self-struggling upward mentality.
If you think you can’t, you can’t produce power.
A psychologist has done such an experiment. He hypnotizes the tester, and then gives hints to some people: You have extraordinary power; at the same time, the opposite hints of other distortions suggest that they are lingering and weak.
Under these two different minds, they are tested for grip strength.
As a result, the results of the first group were excellent, while the results of the second group were very low.
The success of life is of course related to the external environment.
However, it is more related to self-motivation and to its own sense of success.
Scientists’ investigation and research on creative talents shows that one of the main characteristics of creative talents is not afraid of failure, not superstitious others, and not superstitious authority.
They have a strong self-confidence. American psychologists have conducted a study that lasted for several years. They conducted long-term follow-up surveys of students with rich intelligence and found students with similar intelligence and similar scores.The achievements after decades are quite different. The reason is not the difference in intelligence, but the difference in personality characteristics.
Most of the accomplished people are determined, hardworking, not afraid of difficulties, dare to doubt, not superstitious authority, and self-confidence can be overcome.
It is this self-confidence and self-motivation that makes them brave in practice, dare to persist, and finally succeed.
Self-motivation is a kind of psychological process that people produce psychologically and positively and surpass themselves.There is a little girl named Fang Fang. She was a coward when she was a child. She never dared to participate in sports activities and was afraid of being injured.
However, after she participated in several psychological counseling, she dared to participate in diving, parachuting and other adventure sports.
Her transformation surprised many people. She said to people: “After several psychological counseling, I knew why I was timid. I learned to be self-motivated and began to imagine myself as a brave high-altitude skydiver and trembled.I jumped an umbrella and the friends changed my opinion.
I think that I am a full-fledged, adventurous person.
Later, there was another opportunity to skydiving. I think this is a good opportunity to change myself. I always said to myself: “I am the bravest girl, I am not afraid of anything.
When the plane rose to an altitude of 15,000 meters, I found that the companions who had never skipped the umbrella were very interesting. They all tried to calm themselves down, so they were happy to control their inner fears.
I think: I used to be like this!
“In an instant, I feel that I have changed.
I was the first to jump out of the cabin. From that moment on, I felt like I was another person.
Self-motivation has caused a great change in Fangfang. She gradually fades out the previous self-confirmation and gives herself new incentives, so that she wants to look at it in order to try the joy of success.
In the end, Fang Fang changed from a coward to a new woman who dared to take risks and have the ability to experience life.
Her change, this will definitely affect her future life, and will certainly make her study and career a success.
Whether a person can consciously motivate himself or herself will have a great impact on his life.
In 944, the United States had a name called John?
Goddard’s teenager, he listed a major event he wanted to do in his life as his life’s volunteer.
What he wants to do is: “Explore to the Nile, the Amazon and the Federal River, climb Mount Everest, Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Myth; drive elephants, camels, ostriches and wild horses; visit Marco Polo and Alexander IThe road that walked; starred in a movie like “People’s Mount Taishan”; took off and landed on a flying aircraft; read the writings of Shatubia, Plato and Aristotle; compose a piece of music; write a book;Every country in the world; marrying and having children; visiting the world.” Each item has been numbered, with a total of 127 goals.
Now John Goddard has completed 106 of these goals after eight consecutive escapes and unimaginable hardships.
His next goal is to visit China.
It is this self-motivating spirit that is energetic and energetic that makes his life full of strength.
Incentives are so important, so we must constantly motivate ourselves and continue to encourage ourselves.
American psychologist Maslow once asked his students: “Who wants to write the greatest novel in America in your class?
Who wants to be a member of parliament, governor or president?
Who wants to be the UN Secretary General?
Who wants to be a great composer?
Who wants to be a saint?
Who will be a great leader?
The student giggled and blushing, and no one had the courage to admit that he had this wish.
Maslow asked his graduate student: “Which of you are preparing to write great psychology books?”
The graduate students are also blushing and dare not bravely claim that they have this ambition and talent.
“We need to cheer for ourselves, encourage ourselves, and people who often encourage themselves can create higher results.”
Both life and creation require motivation.
Inspires vitality and renews creativity.
Goethe said: “If you lose wealth, you have almost nothing to lose; if you lose your honor, you lose a lot; and if you lose your courage, you lose everything.
A lot of research in psychology tells us that a healthy person should always maintain a good attitude, have optimistic emotions, have the courage to be invincible, and be able to continue to be more self-reliant.
Such people will always be full of strength.
