You can not deny that you can not be at every phase of your life unscathed. There was hustles and cross-roads that make it difficult. There are setbacks, and failures and most importantly issues of no confidence and self-doubt emerges at these times. Many people, however, reconcile the possibilities, using the opportunities ahead of them to pass phases of time, but still most of them strand stuck there, leaving the hand of hope and dwelling in darkness.
Sometimes, people talk to therapists, sometimes they travel, meditate, take few days off to clear the clouds and see through, and sometimes they also listen to some people who motivate them, to be better, to do great things, to achieve more and to be the best among others.
All what people needs is a little lift to touch the sky. The basic human tendency includes our responses to acknowledgements and appreciations, out brain is wired in a manner where we filter things. To understand this, we have to understand two phenomena, barrier of threshold and cloud of ambiguity, so what are they?
BARRIER OF THRESHOLD
This is an imaginary box-limit of our brain. Whenever we do anything, we observe its result; it happens subconsciously, but we can feel it. We play the game where we think we are at out best. We wear colours which we think suits us and so on and so forth. What we think matters, because we make our decisions based on our thinking, and then our decisions guide our life.
Threshold is a limit in its most basic sense. Let’s say I made a choice to do something, then I will either have a cue after that to do it again or I will think it has some loss or has no worth to be done again.
When we get a temptation, we call it cue and after that we perform action and in the next step, we get result, but the process doesn’t completely end here. After everything, our brain analyses it and marks it good or bad, like to be done again or never to be done again. This is how we start learning things as a child, we have a cue, we act and we get result and, in the end, we conclude about that cue. For example, when a little boy sees a flame, he tempts to touch it. Its luminous elegant flame attracts boy’s eyes and boy slides to it to touch it, to feel it. He acts, which means he touches the flame and as the result, he felt the heat burning his palm. This result tells him subconsciously that this must not be done, ever.
When we analyse a pattern, we act and filter and iterate it over and over, we create a barrier which is hard to escape. We stuck in self-doubt because of this barrier as we think we have exhausted every possibility of hope and this needs to be hurdled away, but it takes some external help to be vanished.
CLOUD OF AMBIGUITY
Ambiguity means enigma of thought’s whirl clouding sense of judgement. People always feel alone and miserable when they think they are worthless, but all this happens because of equivocation and anxiety. We leave things, make bad judgement calls and even loose our temper when this situation clouds our mind, we certainly find it difficult to potentially use our knowledge. This result in lack of confidence.
NEED FOR MOTIVATION
Motivation is indeed not a permanent feeling; it lasts for a very small fraction of time frame and is hard to achieve but we can not also deny its importance in our life. Motivation is really needed to get us started and to fill our hearts with confidence, to give us hope and a vision to live for, to fight for. We experience a little up-valley to low-dip momentum after motivation, a really small time-frame to get something done, but when motivated, we make decisions which highly effects out potential, strengthens our confidence and also clears some clouds of ambiguity.
So, YES. MOTIVATION WORKS but for a limited time period, we can not rely on motivation for too long.
