Using the “The Seinfeld Strategy” to achieve motivation

So I came across an awesome article on “The Seinfeld Strategy”, based on one of the most successful comedians of our time, Jerry Seinfeld, and felt compelled to share. You can read more about it on this site:

One of the reasons why Jerry Seinfeld was able to establish himself as one of the funniest comedians of his time was because he applied one fundamental to his everyday life, and that was “Not breaking the chain”!!

And “Not breaking the chain” doesn’t only have to apply to comedians; it could also apply to CEO’s, serial entrepreneurs, and anybody wanting to lead a more wholesome life. What exactly does “Not breaking the chain” mean?

It means staying consistent and motivated. This is achieved by purchasing a calendar and ‘x’ing’ out the days you were performing your task. At the same time, it also means to pick one simple task at a time and to convert that task into something actionable, meaning that it must provide you with the outcome that you’d like!

And so if you’re hungry for success in your business or in your professional endeavors. Avoid doing this:

Becoming a self-motivator

We all have those lazy days where we just don’t want to get any work done, or anything at all!

The question is how can we snap out of these mindsets in order to maximize the amount of work we get done. Maximizing our output is what’s usually on most successful people’s minds, and it sure isn’t a joyride.

Self-motivators are those that are able to get through the day optimizing what they are doing without the need for a cup of coffee or tea.

For example, this morning I was at my apartment looking at the sunshine out the window and I see this lady jogging a full speed while sipping my cup of Joe. What I noticed about her was that she had no headphones on meaning she was able to work up a sweat without any reminders or music in your ears. And I thought to myself: If only we could all be self-motivators like that lady!

 

Self-motivation can be achieved by anybody, from any direction! Just do some research in figuring out what motivates you and take it from there!

Optimistic mindsets are surely a start to self-motivation. What are some other ways you can think of? Feel free to leave a comment below!
