Why do we spend so much time thinking about what we want, rather than how to get it?
It’s easy to get lost in our search for what makes us happy, but the best way to find what makes you happy is to be the person who actually makes you feel good.
That’s what motivational phrases are all about.
This week, we’re highlighting 12 motivational words that you might want to learn.
The Motivational Word list is the brainchild of Professor Peter Dutton, one of the world’s foremost experts on the science of motivation.
“Motivational phrases have become a key part of the repertoire of many people, including athletes, entrepreneurs, teachers and even politicians,” he says.
“But we know that there are a number of reasons why people find them useful.”
What makes a motivational phrase effective?
First, there’s the psychological component: motivational phrases can be effective because they’re about motivating you.
They encourage you to take action and to think about the next step.
And the more you do something, the more likely you are to succeed.
So they can motivate you to do something else too.
And if you’re someone who has a problem finding the motivation to keep going, a motivational term might be an answer.
In the US, for example, motivational phrases include such phrases as “get on with it”, “take your time”, “stay with it” and “just keep going”.
In Japan, motivational phrase is a common word for “get going”, which is what you’d expect.
But if you have trouble making the effort, it can be hard to understand why people are feeling the way they do.
Another reason is the content: the more things you do, the better you get at it, explains Prof Dutton.
“For example, if you see a picture of yourself in a bikini, you’re more likely to start doing the activity.
The more things your brain is stimulated by, the harder it is to stop.”
The same is true for words like “work hard”, “get excited”, “keep working” and so on.
“People are much more likely than others to use these phrases in response to things they are interested in doing, which is important because it makes them feel good about themselves,” says Prof Denny.
“These phrases can also be used to motivate other people, which makes them more motivated too.”
It’s important to remember that a phrase like “get busy” or “get motivated” is a motivational word, and can be used by anyone.
But Prof Dork says it’s important not to think of them as some sort of set of rules that you should follow or that you must do.
Instead, use them as a tool to get you through difficult times.
The phrase “get ready for the next day” or the phrase “come up with the next ideas” are two examples.
What does it take to be a successful motivational speaker?
Prof Dock points out that success in motivational speaking depends on how good you are at it.
“Successful motivational speakers can be someone who’s not very good at communicating, or they can be somebody who’s very good but doesn’t have a lot of communication skills,” he explains.
“I know people who have done well on a first attempt, but then had a bad day afterwards.”
But that doesn’t mean you can’t still be successful, he adds.
“You can have a really good first day, and then have a bad second day.
Prof Dennett adds that it’s not just speaking, either. “
Once you’ve learnt the skill of speaking, then you can go back to your previous level.”
Prof Dennett adds that it’s not just speaking, either.
“If you have a message that you want to get across, or you want someone to take you to the next level, then speaking is a really useful way to do that,” he tells Al Jazeera.
“It can also help you to think critically about your own behaviour, and to see how it fits into your overall strategy and goals.”
What’s more, you can also incorporate some of the things that a motivational speaker says into your own motivational messages.
For example, you might say “I can’t be the only one doing this, so don’t be scared” or you might talk about your desire to become a better person.
This can help you get your message across more effectively.
It also means you can actually achieve your goal.
“A motivational speaker who’s good at the task is one who can talk to others in a way that others can understand,” says Professor Denny, adding that this is particularly useful in areas where people are often struggling to communicate.
“They might say ‘I’m going to work on this’ or ‘I can be the first to do this’.
People get really excited when they hear that.”
The next time you’re at a conference, or in a job interview, it’s worth listening to your own thoughts. If you’re
