How To Motivate Yourself Instantly!

Apr 19, 2008
Let us talk a little bit about resources. What are resources? These are things that are experiences that make you feel a particular way. There are many types of experiences and they include making simple successes, past enjoyments, physical sensation, emotional experiences and even special victories. All resources tap into the state, make you feel resourceful. If you want to feel resourceful, you need to tap into the events of the past that made you feel resourceful.

This way, you will be able to exhibit the behaviors associated with that resource. If you felt somewhat fearful, what resource would you need? Well, you could probably think up of states, such as determination, or even a sense of calm, or better still, a combination of both. It does not matter that the times you experienced these resources were not exactly the same situation that you are experiencing now. All you really want to do is to be able to tap into that state and become more powerful.

Likewise, even if you did not experience that state as powerfully as an intensity scale of ten, just go in there because knowing how to control your sub modalities means that you can intensify the power of that resource. So, just go ahead and experience what it might be like.

The next exercise we want to do is known as Mapping Across. Mapping of sub modalities requires you to understand a few concepts. First of all, you should know that every resourceful memory has a structure that you can identify through the sub modalities checklist.

Secondly, you can take the structure or the experience of the resourcefulness, and use that to change the feeling or structure or an experience that does not feel as resourceful as it should be. For instance, if you felt confident in a past, you can take the same confidence and put it in your new situation, so that even if you used to feel a little bit unsure of yourself in this new situation, you could use that confidence to bolster that confidence in that new situation.

Let us do an experiment. Take an experience where you procrastinated in doing something. But, the state of procrastination should be one where you know that if you did do it, it would benefit you. Go to that time now and identify the sub modalities of procrastination. What state must you be in, in order to do what you suppose to do? My guess is that you will need a state called motivation instead of procrastination.

Could you think of a time where you were motivated? Maybe, when you are compelled to get something done? Think of that situation and identify the sub modalities behind that state. Once you have done that, go back into the situation of procrastination. And now, change the procrastination sub modalities, such that they are motivation sub modalities instead. For instance, if the sub modalities of procrastination were dark, closed and in color, but the sub modalities of motivation were bright, closed and in color, then, visualizing yourself in the situation of procrastination just changing the level of brightness by making it brighter.

You will not have to change anything else because they are the same, and since your mind codes it that way, changing those will not make much of a difference in your coding of experience. As you do this exercise, just remember to identify the differences between the two experiences of procrastination and motivation, and make changes only to those that are different. In NLP, we call them 'the difference that makes the difference'.

Since both of them are coded differently, it must be the difference in that coding that creates the bulk of a change of experience. What you might expect as the outcome of this experiment will be that the situation of procrastination will now appear more motivating to you. You might even feel more compelled to go out and get that thing done.
