Self motivation, how do you get there?
Make your choice
Ah yes, the elusive self motivation we all so desperately search for. Knowing that everything is going to work out once we find the motivation to do it. Some people think to themselves if I just wait long enough the motivation will hit me and I will be off to the races. Yet it never comes and you say to yourself tomorrow.
I challenge you to experiment in life, because people can put the cart before the horse many times. Have you ever needed to be motivated to do something you love to do. No one has ever had to motivate me to take a walk in the park, or enjoy my job. I just love what I do.
Too often people follow the crowd because that is what you are supposed to do. You have to get a degree, you have to work a 9 to 5, you have to get married. The truth of the matter is you do not have to do anything. Everything you choose to do is a choice. The sooner you realize that, the sooner you get closer to being self-motivated.
Have a goal
If I asked you what do you want in life, would you have an answer? Do you know what drives you to do what you do? Having well-thought-out concise goals, is another part of the process that creates self motivation all on its own.
Let me give you two scenarios and you tell me which one you would like more. Scenario one there are 1000 doors in front of you. The goal is to open the doors until you get to the prize. The prize is an unknown they tell you it could be anything from a pet bunny to a one million dollars. Now an optimist might be able to focus on well I have a chance of one million dollars, but to be honest open 1000 doors not without quite knowing the outcome can feel tedious to say the least.
Now let’s change the scenario up a little. Again you have 1000 doors in front of you, but now you know for a fact your biggest dream is in one of those doors. You could probably open all 1000 doors without any problem, because you are so busy focus on what you desire that the door are an after thought.
That’s how self motivation works. When you have something you really want, that is the self motivation the choices you make to get to your goals.
So what’s the issue? Either you can feel the choices you are making are not in alignment with your goals, or you might not know what your goals are. The second you figure out what really drives you though, and you make the choices to take the necessary steps to get there, just watch how self-motivated you will become.
If you haven’t already give it a try. I am telling you that you will be a happier, healthier, more self-motivated individual if you do.
Find your greatness
I love to say this because I believe it and feel it in my heart. The greatness is in you. The steps you take, habits you have, people you surround yourself with, thing’s you say to yourself, attitude you have towards life, and the list goes on. The greatness is in you and it has always been.
Greatness is something that never really ends, you have to continue to do great thing’s day in and day out. So you might as well do something that you love to do, because no one has ever needed self motivation to do that.
I will end with do what you love, and love what you do, stay motivated my friend!
