Motivational Style

What Style(s) Are You???

I recently read an article about motivational styles. I took from this article 2 key points. #1 In knowing your motivational style(s) you can learn how to better motivate yourself. #2 Those time wasters you revert to when looking for motivation.

Also, the majority of you probably fall within more  than one style. I know I saw myself in at least 2 of the styles if not in all 4 of the styles. Of course I had to check this out because one of the motivational styles is “The Adventurer”!

The Motivational Styles

  • “The Adventurer” – Thrill Seeker
  • “The Doer” – Goal Setter
  • “The Lover” – People Person
  • “The Thinker” – The Learner

I know when I am looking for motivation I usually revert to my time wasters to act as a fill in until motivation and inspiration strike once again. You know what I am talking about!

My Time Wasters

  • “The Adventurer” in me wastes time on waiting for change; what is next.
  • “The Doer” in me wastes time on to-do-lists.
  • “The Lover” in me wastes time on people pleasing at times.
  • “The Thinker” in me wastes time on asking too many questions and not actively listening.

I am learning that it is okay to slow down and take the time to recharge and reenergize myself and for the better. I really need to break old habits or behaviors at times too. I am also learning to not put too much on my plate and to say “No!” when necessary. Really make time for yourself and make yourself first and not last at times. Really make connections and build healthy as well as supportive relationships.

I find myself motivated, inspired and energized to give that 100%+. I am learning to ask for help and support as well as just letting things go. I am also learning not to sweat the small things and celebrate more; reward myself. Really find my inner child and thrill seeker again!

Here’s to Looking at What You are Gaining INSTEAD of What You are Losing When it Comes to Being Motivated!!!
