How to motivate my motivation?
A friend of mine has to visit a motivation course. “Self motivation and self marketing” – sponsored by a German JobCenter.
He told me yesterday, that the teacher or coach in that very class is very strict with the students.
All grown up people.
Coach has asked them about their goals and blocks why they can’t reach their goals.
Haven’t been there, but I bet – since all of them are unemployed – the major goal was “I want to find a job”.
I won’t judge the goals. This is for sure a good goal.
A bit general, but good.
Blocks why they can’t find a job.
My friend told me, if they weren’t able to find a block, the teacher starts to treat them as being handicapped.
Is it really that easy to find a block?
Is the block that I will find easily the real one?
I doubt it.
I have read many good blogs recently dealing with the same subject.
- finding goals
- identify block
- get rid of the blocks
- be a new shiny successful person
Blogs that ask, demand, promise:
- 21 ways to success
- 15 block and how to get easily rid of them
- Kick your blocks away today
- How to kick yourself in your behind
- A shine road to success
- Identify your target group now
- Act don’t rest
And so on and so on.
The titles above have been made up by me to show the road.
I really appreciate all the effort my co-bloggers put in their blogs and their professions.
I also think that they are better coaches than the one my friend has to face these days.
At least I am stuck in the motivation thing and identifying blocks and getting rid of them.
Some also say it is about changing life and that it can be done with a breath.
Just turn around and it is changed.
Yet I am stuck.
I mean if I can name a block and get rid of it, how can it be a block when I can identify it so easily?
And aren’t sometimes circumstances the real block?
How to motivate yourself in todays economical situation?
Germany has about 3,000,000 unemployed people and the jobrate is about 60,000.
That makes 1 job for 50 people.
Some have written about 500 applications in two years.
Do they all have the wrong motivation?
Haven’t they all not identified their blocks?
Or is it just a strategy to put the blame on those who aren’t really to blame?
What do you think?
