How To Get Motivated Instantly!

Apr 19, 2008
Sub modalities work by giving us meaning to an internal representation or thought.

For instance, go back to a situation where you were feeling very motivated. What do I mean by motivated? It is an experience of you being able to get things done, the sensation that you are capable of doing something, or even compelled to do something.

I once asked someone what he meant by motivation and he said, 'Well, having to go to work in the morning. Otherwise, I will get fired!' Well, experiences like that are actually quite motivating, although you may not want to have that kind of experience for too long.

Motivation can also include experiences such as having to go to the toilet and rush in the morning. States such as feeling hungry, and wanting to go and eat something, would also be similar situations.

These are naturally occurring situations where you are motivated to get up and go. However, other instances, such as being awarded the first prize in a competition could also be equally motivating or similarly, being promoted in a job. All these are instances of motivation.

Here's an exercise that you can do.

Now, go back to a time when you really had this feeling of motivation. Close your eyes, or leave them open, depending on how well you visualize. Either way, see what you see, hear what you hear, and feel what you feel. Give it a rating from the scale of one to ten, and rate if you motivation was one, very, very mild, or ten, extremely intense.

In this first exercise, I want you to hold the image in your mind as clearly as you can. Now, take a look at the sub modalities, and start to make shifts on each of the sub modalities to notice what happens to the level of intensity.

For instance, right now, notice the level of intensity in your state of motivation. If your image is associated, I would like you to disassociate. Notice the level of change in intensity. Does it go up or does it go down? Make a mental note on that or write it down on your sub modality checklist.

On the other hand, if your image was already disassociated, I would now like you to associate and step inside that image, such that you are looking out through your own eyes, and notice what happens to the intensity of that emotional motivation.

Also, if your image is bright, you could either make it darker, or even brighter. Also, recognize that in order to use a positive state, you should intensify the positive state, rather than diminish it.
