Sometimes when at work, we might experience stressful thinking such as: ‘I have to go to this meeting’ or, ‘I have to do this task’. It’s a slightly tough way to think or to motivate ourselves, as it creates inner resentment and stress. Choice-based thinking, like ‘I want to..’ creates freedom and motivation.
- Tip part 1: Experiment shifting your thinking from, ‘I have to do this task’ to, I ‘choose to’ and even, “ I’m willing to …’.
- Try that out for size – don’t force it. Just allow it as a new way of experimental thinking. See what happens to your feelings when you do that. How motivated do you now feel?
