Shy woman holding hand up saying noDoes shyness get the better of you sometimes? You’re not alone.

Some people have an air of shyness about them. This can have knock-on effects; people may see you as someone who lacks confidence, a worrier, someone who doubts themselves or maybe even someone who’s not worth talking to.

Not a great start if you’re trying to impress.

Let’s be honest, when faced with a new or challenging situation, feelings of shyness can hit us all. But for some of us, these feelings take control. Worry and anxiety overtake our thought processes and everything else goes out of the window.

According to a number of psychologists, sustaining motivation requires three things: autonomy, competence and value. It’s important to feel like you’re in charge, it’s important that you do something that aligns with your personal values, and it’s important that you’re good at what you’re doing.

Taking these three factors into account, let’s look at seven ways to get off your butt and take action:

No Self-Motivation = No Success – Here’s 10 Reasons Why

Every day is a new start pictureA lot of very smart people end up as failures – failures in life, in work, and in relationships. A lot of very smart people are given plenty of opportunities for success and never take advantage of them. A lot of very smart people are born into privilege and yet turn into failures. And a lot of very smart people accumulate degrees and skills and still fail to achieve what we think they would. And what is the common factor in all of these failures? It’s lack of self-motivation.

When Your Mind is Willing but the Result is Unfulfilling

One of the most infuriating circumstances you can find yourself in is when you genuinely want to do something and achieve something, and then when you set to it the results are far from perfect. Why is it that even when we have our minds set on something, that either it doesn’t get done, or the results are unsatisfactory? Is there a disconnect between what we think and what we do?

Let’s Start With An Example

The Quality Without Which A Leader Is Incomplete

Believe QuoteLet me begin with a small story:

A young man got appointed as a department head in one of those “we love rules and bureaucracy” and “no one can fire us” Government offices. He was very excited on his first day and he met his team and was trying to understand how things work. He noticed that there was this one clerk, a senior person who neither met him, nor greeted him. And he never saw him working either. He just used to sit and read English novels.

The 7 Things Successful People Do Differently Than Ordinary People

Hiker looking at a motivational sunsetEveryone wants to be successful, but sadly, most people don’t have what it takes to produce the outstanding results like successful people do. If you want to be successful, you must first start with yourself. You must change the way you do things.

When you change the way you do things, you will get different results in life. It is what you do each day that gets you where you are right now. Therefore, if you continue to do what you have always been doing, you will never get to the new place that you wanted to go.

4 Steps to Leading a Highly Motivated Life

Sky diving motivationYou can look around and notice a vast sea of people drifting through life. Nine times out of ten you can bet that a majority of those drifting are not present. They’re not focused on the power of what they can do right now, but are instead wrapped in either regrets of yesterday, the joys of yesterday, the worries of tomorrow, or the wonder of tomorrow.

Whether good or bad, they are focused on everything else but right now.
