10 Esai Inspiratif tentang Pengembangan Diri dan Motivasi

Kenapa Motivasi dan Tekad untuk Mengubah Nasib itu Mudah Menguap?

Setiap awal tahun mungkin kita punya sejenis angan dan rencana agar tahun ini, kehidupan menjadi lebih konclong dan lebih menggairahkan.

Kita menyimpan motivasi dan tekad untuk mengubah nasib, demi sejarah hidup yang lebih sejahtera. Kita punya tekad untuk melakukan ini dan itu. Kita termotivasi untuk mewujudkan angan ini dan aspirasi itu.

Lalu, entah mengapa, sejalan dengan sepoi angin yang terus berlalu, motivasi dan tekad bulat itu selalu menguap entah kemana. Motivasi dan tekad bulat itu pelan-pelan hanya berbuih fatamorgana.

Kenapa bisa begitu?

Ya kenapa motivasi dan tekad untuk mengubah nasib itu lebih cepat menguap daripada yang kita sangka? Salah satu penyebabnya layak di-ulik disini.

Sejumlah studi yang ekstensif dalam ilmu perilaku (behavior science) mengungkap fakta muram : willpower (tekad/kemauan) untuk berubah pada manusia itu memang terbatas jumlahnya.

Roy Baumeister dalam bukunya yang berjudul Willpower – Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength menulis : willpower itu ternyata punya prinsip kerja seperti reservoir (semacam cadangan air dalam tangki).

Jadi bayangkan, willpower kita itu bekerja seperti simpanan air dalam botol. Dan studi yang dilakukan Baumeister menunjukkan, cadangan willpower itu terkuras dengan cepat saat kita dihadapkan pada tantangan sehari-hari yang selalu menerpa kita.

Tantangan rutin seperti : menelusuri kemacetan di jalanan, disergap berita-berita buruk yang terus mengalir, menghadapi beban pekerjaan yg menumpuk; semuanya membuat cadangan willpower mudah menguap.

Dan sayangnya, willpower dalam tubuh kita tidak bisa dibagi-bagi per jenis tantangan. Misal : cadangan willpower yang ini untuk menghandle kemacetan, yang bagian satunya lagi untuk mengelola beban kerja yang menumpuk, dan satunya lagi dialokasikan untuk mengelola tugas-tugas tambahan.

Tidak, willpower dalam tubuh manusia tidak bisa dikapling-kapling seperti itu.

Begitu otak kita dibebani stress karena macet/sekolah/kerjaan/gaji kurang, maka reservoir willpower dalam tubuh kita langsung menguap karena habis terpakai.

Apa artinya? Tak lagi tersisa willpower yang amat dibutuhkan untk mewujudkan tekad dan rencana mengubah nasib.

Sebab cadangan willpower yang terbatas itu, sudah “terserap habis” untuk meng-handle beragam tantangan hidup tadi (kemacetan di jalanan, beban pekerjaan, mikir gaji yang terus kurang, dst).

Dengan kata lain, tekad kuat untk melakukan ini dan itu lenyap karena cadangan willpower sudah keburu habis. Itulah kenapa rencana indah Anda lebih sering hanya akan jadi angan belaka.

Pertanyaannya : lalu bagaimana caranya agar cadangan willpower kita tetap penuh (seperti air dalam botol yang selalu penuh)? Dan tidak terbuang sia-sia?

Tidak ada jalan yang mudah. Beberapa diantaranya mungkin layak dipertimbangkan.

Langkah Pertama : hindari berita-berita/informasi yang hanya menguras emosi dan negative mindset.

Studi -studi tentang perilaku menulis : berita/informasi yang menyulut emosi mudah sekali menguras cadangan willpower kita. Sering tanpa kita sadari.

Membaca atau menyimak berita yang menyulut emosi seperti membuang willpower kita yang amat berharga ke tempat yg sia-sia.

Langkah Kedua : hindari jalanan yang macet. Oke, bagian yang ini mungkin tak mudah bagi yang bekerja dan tinggal di kota-kota besar.

Namun studi yang dilakukan Gallup menyebut : kemacetan di jalanan merupakan salah satu media yang ampuh untuk menguras energi willpower manusia. Kemacetan membuat begitu banyak cadangan willpower tumpah di jalanan dengan sia-sia.

Dari studi tersebut mungkin muncul sebuah korelasi yang muram dan mengejutkan : tingkat motivasi seseorang sesungguhnya amat dipengaruhi oleh derajat kemacetan jalanan yang ia hadapi.

Bekerja dari rumah, atau pindah ke kampung halaman yang relatif sepi; adalah langkah terbosan yang barangkali kudu dengan berani dilakukan. Demi menjaga agar cadangan willpower tidak tercecer di jalanan dengan sia-sia.

Langkah ketiga : rutin berolahraga ternyata punya impak positif bagi upaya memelihara willpower (demikian sejumlah studi yang termuat dalam buku Baumeister tadi). Rutin olahraga artinya minimal 4 kali dalam seminggu berolahraga selama 30 menit.

Semua sudah tahu dampak positif olahraga bagi kesehatan jasmani. Yang belum banyak diungkap : secara mengejutkan, rutin olahraga juga punya dampak signifikan bagi “ketangguhan willpower dan motivasi” seseorang.

Orang yang rutin olahraga terbukti tidak mudah menyerah, dan lebih sanggup memelihara level motivasinya dalam jangka lama dibanding yang malas olahraga.

Rutin olahraga barangkali jauh lebih ampuh untuk memelihara motivasi seseorang dibanding ikut sepuluh kali seminar motivasi oleh para motivator.

Langkah keempat atau terakhir : rutin bangun saat fajar belum menyingsing, dan lalu melakukan ritual bersyukur pada Sang Ilahi; juga terbukti efektif untuk menjaga willpower (kekuatan tekad). Dalam tradisi Islam, ritual ini mungkin berujud dalam bentuk shalat Tahajud.

Studi yang dilakukan Sonya Lyubormisky (2007) menyebut fakta : rutin melakukan ritual bersyukur (gratitude ritual) saat keheningan pagi/fajar, terbukti membuat seseorang lebih tangguh dalam menjaga willpower.

Orang yang rutin melakukan ritual bersyukur terbukti lebih happy dalam menjalani hidup, dan lebih efektif dalam memelihara level kekuatan tekadnya untuk berubah ke arah yang lebih baik.

Demikianlah, ulasan tentang kekuatan tekad, tentang WILLPOWER.

Kita sekarang tahu, willpower itu mudah menguap. Namun kita juga tahu, bagaimana cara untuk memelihara agar willpower itu tetap terjaga.

Tekad dan motivasi Anda untuk mengubah nasib ke arah yang lebih baik amat tergantung pada kekuatan WILLPOWER Anda.

Maintain your willpower to redefine your future history.
