Angry gets shit done

Angry gets shit done

Need motivation to get something done? How about anger? Angry gets shit done.

Have you ever been told by someone close to you that you could not accomplish something? For example, ever been told by your spouse not to do something. My wife actually told me that she didn’t think I should install the fire alarm myself. She believed that it would be an electric fire hazard. It would be ironic to have a fire started by a fire alarm. I’m not saying this to ridicule my wife, she simply tends to be very paranoid. My point is, the only effect of her saying that was it made me angry. I felt she was calling me incompetent, or at least incapable. I wanted to prove her wrong. I wanted to drop what I was doing and immediately install the fire alarm. Had she asked me to do it, it probably would have just gone on my to do list.

Angry gets shit done.

Is there someone in your life who you dislike being confronted by? Perhaps it’s you spouse who tells you can or cannot do something. Perhaps you have brother or sister and some sibling rivalry. Perhaps your parents don’t believe you can accomplish something. This is likely someone close to you who you love. But, at the same time this closeness makes their contradictory opinion even more hurtful. Would you do almost anything to prove this person wrong? Maybe there’s even extreme cases where you would accept losses in money, time or material goods to prove that person wrong.

That’s called motivation.

We all have self doubt. We all have an inner dialogue that is sometimes negative. When you begin to have these negative thoughts or feeling, imagine them being said by that one person you would absolutely hate to have say it.  Over time you may be able to that negative inner dialogue into motivation.

P.S. I hope she doesn’t read this blog. She could use this tactic to get me to do all kinds of things with a little reverse psychology.
