Successful Motivation for Paralegals

What is motivation? According to the dictionary, it is the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way, or the general desire or willingness of someone to do something. There are lots of internal and external stimuli which cause people to either want to work hard and succeed or not.
The amount of motivation that a person has to do something differs for each individual. Motivation is dependent on how badly the individual wants to succeed, the ultimate reward or goal at the end and the expectations of the individual and of others around him.
Successful motivation starts with yourself, and it is definitely a state of mind. Without the right mindset, it will be almost impossible to motivate yourself. You have to start thinking positively and think motivating thoughts. Have a clear goal in your mind as to where you want to be and what you want to achieve, and every time you start feeling demotivated, picture yourself as though you have already achieved that goal. Picture what you will be doing, what you will be wearing and how you will be feeling. This is a great way to motivate yourself and get yourself back on the right track.
For successful motivation, you need to break up the bigger goals into smaller more achievable goals, and make milestones for yourself. Reward yourself each time you hit one of them. When you start work in the mornings, start with your toughest tasks and get them out of the way while you are still fresh. Most of your best work will happen in the first two hours of your working day, so start with the most difficult and important tasks.
Find a mantra that you can spur yourself or others on. It could be anything, for example, 'failure is not an option,' or 'I am successful and inspired.'
For successful motivation, your bad habits and thought patterns will need to be addressed and improved upon. Negative thoughts and emotions will stop you from achieving the success that you deserve, so on a daily basis you need to change those patterns slowly around. You can do this by means of meditation, taking a course, reading motivational material, and checking yourself whenever you feel a negative thought coming through.
Most importantly, for successful motivation, you will need to be passionate about what you are doing and love the path that you have chosen to walk. Don't do something or commit yourself to doing something that you don't enjoy or don't feel comfortable about. Remember you need to make the most out of life and doing something you don't enjoy will make you feel even more demotivated in the end.
