Self motivation is described as the “ability to do what needs to be done, without influence from other people or situations. People with self motivation can find a reason and strength to complete a task, even when challenging, without giving up or needing another to encourage them.” (businessdirectory.com)
Being self-motivated is therefore essential to your success in life. Your willingness, determination and above all, consistency, pave the way for your success or failure in achieving your goals and dreams.
Without self motivation, your time, effort and money will be wasted. It’s like you owning a car, but not going anywhere or owning a blender but never using it to make a smoothie.
We all have setbacks and situations we find challenging, but shouldn’t we be stronger than our excuses?
What does being self-motivated look like?
Let’s break it down for you:
A) It’s managing your time well, so that you can get everything done with ease
B) Its taking time out to work on yourself, even if you’ve never prioritized yourself before
C) Its being stronger than your excuses and going through with it, no matter how you feel or what’s happened to you
D) It’s ignoring the negativity from people who are too weak, jealous or afraid to support your goals
E) Its being consistent over time and not letting set backs keep you from attaining your vision
D) Its getting up every time and not allowing your fear of failure take over
Ultimately, self-motivation is putting your self that loves you unconditionally, in the driving seat!
So get your training shoes on, dress for the occasion, put on a smile and motivate yourself to greatness…we’ll be waiting for you on the other side.
