Why Motivated People Don’t Get Ulcers

It may seem like a funny question, but in professional life, there are many implications to why motivated people don’t get ulcers. First, let’s remind ourselves that ulcers are mainly caused when you worry too much and unnecessarily pressure yourself with the smallest of troubles. When major problems arrive in life as they inevitably do; you will simply end up troubling yourself without any positive results. Remember that a troubled mind cannot solve any problems – they are far too ‘worried’ to think rationally and find a solution! However, if you’re highly motivated; you’ll not have to face any of these issues, or take pills for ulcers!

If you want to be successful, remember that health is a primary factor. Psychosomatic disorders like ulcers and migraines are common with people who have worries without any though towards the solution. These are physical disorders that start acting up if your mind starts thinking that you have problems. Hence, science has proved a direct link between psychological health and physical well-being. If you want success, you have to work as hard as you can; which is impossible if you’re suffering physically! So physical health and maintaining a healthy diet is also an important part of motivation and success.

Now, to get motivated, you need confidence; and it’s not something available in pills, ready – to – mix drinks, or injectable ampules. Confidence is something you have to imbibe within yourself. You have to work your way to the top, and you have to prepare yourself for the fight. Notice the number of ‘you’s in the last two lines? That’s because any person who is confident is so because of themselves. External factors can inspire, but motivation comes with confidence which you grow within. That’s why motivated people don’t get ulcers – they have no time to worry about ‘if’s and ‘but’s in life – only time to work positively!

If you’ve convinced yourself to perform for yourself, the victory has been half way achieved. Self management is the key to success – ask anyone who you feel is successful. They set targets, plan meticulously, tread carefully, and keep a tenacious hold on their path of work. Such people don’t worry about results, and concentrate all their efforts on working for achievements. That’s why motivated people don’t get ulcers – because they don’t waste time over thinking of all the ‘possibilities’ before the ‘realities’.
