From the author:
Motivation can lead to pressure
The reason is: excessive self-motivation, the constant self-assertion puts us just as much under pressure as self-criticism and self-abuse. In the mind killer of overmotivation, people demand that they always have to be happy, optimistic, self-assured and positive.
Walking around with the credo "There are no problems, only solutions." Even with this error in thinking, we lose sight of reality and run after the fallacy of control and orientation.
Beware of extreme euphoria
The mind killer overmotivation is, however, very difficult to recognize, since it is often associated with the feeling of extreme euphoria. We see our life as a single success story and feel great and invulnerable.
There is a lack of balance between failure and success as we completely hide the failure. The highest manifestation of this overmotivation is dealing with mourning due to the loss of a close-knit human being.
Overmotivation as a social trend
Thirty years ago, it was still customary to wear a year of mourning and to commemorate the death of every family feast. Today one is already struck by his fellow-men when one is saddened a week after the funeral and can not go back to the agenda.
Not infrequently, you can hear sentences like: "Do not pretend. The dead man would not have wanted you to grieve so long. You have to look ahead now. "This shows that over-motivation has now become a social trend.
Overmotivation conceals misalignment
However, in the course of their lives, most people come to the point where they no longer have the strength to maintain their overmotivity denunciator. Often new mind-killer are created, such as the pressure-thinking mistake or an excessive self-denial.
Overexploitation often has the function of concealing a different imbalance in life, and arranging for a longer period of time with a thing that we have to change than it does us well.
Something to prove
We always motivate ourselves to persevere and continue. This mind-killer is not a discovery of success.
Rather, he comes from those people who have the feeling to always step in the spot and not to escape the hamster wheel. They over-motivate themselves with the intention to prove something to their surroundings.
