20 Small Things People Who Enjoy Being Alone Do That Bring Great Joy

20 Small Things People Who Enjoy Being Alone Do That Bring Great Joy

We all have what tickles us. But for those who enjoy spending time alone, they can have specific preferences on how they spend their time.

1. They spend time watching TV shows. It is not about that great party or hanging out at the club or spending time in a party. They want to see the world from their rooms.

2. They read a good book. They want to be filled with more knowledge and experiences. And what better way to accomplish this than to flip the pages of a book on a topic they are interested in.

3. They reflect. Whether you term it as thinking or meditation, people who love being alone want to be with their true self and feel the world from their own perspectives. They would spend time alone in a remote cabin or in the middle of the woods doing just this.

4. They go on a solo road trip. There is something unending about those walks or solo road trip, it gives them opportunity to evaluate their thoughts and plan for the future.

5. They listen to the world around them. They want to listen to a special type of sound that is in tune with their soul. Such music or sounds gives them the opportunity to be in touch with their true being.

6. They enjoy the ideal meal. It is not about eating and rushing to accomplish other tasks. People who love being alone enjoy a meal and take their time to savor it.

7. They work on artistic pursuit. As a writer, I can do things that connect me with my true sense of purpose. People who love being alone engage in projects that engulf them and use their creativity.

8. They spend time observing. They see the world for what it is, not passively but actively. Thus they can ask the right questions and propel a curious mind.

9. They appreciate the weather. In summer, this means spending time outdoors. In winter, this gives you more reasons to hibernate indoors whether by the fire, reading or writing a journal.

10. They hike on the beach. Going on walks on the beach can be so engaging, as it gives them more room to think deeply.

11. They savor wine after a long day. It is splendid to have a bottle of wine to yourself after a long day. Not only do you savor the taste, such moments offer you a time to unwind and recall the day. (or put its events behind you).

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
