A client asked how do I maintain daily motivation. Don’t I feel tired about life? Don’t I feel sick about life? Don’t I feel that life is meaningless?
I understand the context of his questions because I observe people on the street. I talk to people from all woks of life. Some are really just surviving. When I say surviving, I don’t mean that they are struggling financially. Surviving in this context means that they do not have a purpose, they don’t find meaning in life, they don’t understand why they go to office daily. They are absolutely not motivated to approach their work and even their life.
How do I keep my energy up? How do I maintain my motivation?
For almost 10 years, I have been looking at the human ability to achieve peak performance. I went on to study people who achieve miracles, and those who did not. I experimented theories on myself, also consolidated my findings from my coaching clients; I came up with three conclusions that affect human performance.
With these three conclusions, you can achieve peak performance on your own too. You don’t have to be stuck in mediocre. You can achieve peak performance whenever you like it. You are in charge of your performance.
Below are my recent accounts of my experiences regarding peak performance. Continue reading
My life really got started in the year of 2003. Before that, I was just bumping around, living life as if life happened to me. But since 2003, I live life exactly the way I want it. That is the year that I discover what I would love to do for a living. That is the year that I found my purpose in life.
And on this journey of purpose, failures arise over and over again. But each time, I managed to get back up. Some friends asked what kept me motivated to bounce back from so many failures. And here are my response.
Before I get into the details, I discover five fuel points to kept me going. I called it fuel points because they are the points that supply me the energy and drive to move forward despite all odds.
I’m a believer of living life as an adventure. I always feel that life is about doing the things that we don’t normally do, doing the things that we are afraid to do and doing the things that create a breakthrough for us. In a nutshell, I believe that we must always be pushing the life boundaries.
All my coaching clients will typically feel the adventurer in me as I always challenge them to break the status quo, to push their comfort zone and to push their life boundaries.
In my most recent stunt, I took up a 2-Day singing workshop. At the end of the class, all participants have to sing on stage to a group of audience whom we’ve never met.
We live in a society that is bounded by rules and regulations. To maintain the order of the society, rules and regulations are necessary. Otherwise, we’ll probably be living in a chaotic world.
Rules and regulations keep the world in order, and also keep us in order. Each one of us has a personal set of rules and regulations to maintain our behaviour in the highest form of integrity. Though at times we may have some maverick thoughts, our set of rules and regulations keep us in check.
However, it’s also this set of rules and regulations that can cause unhappiness to build up. Even if you want to feel happy, with the social rules, we may be forced to make unhappy decisions.
Anton Casey, the new villain to our already colourful society. I wonder what was in his mind when he was saying his views. Was he possessed? It was unthinkable how a high-flyer expat did such brainless act.
