Self motivation is the driving force behind the remarkable success of some of the most famous people in the world and if you want to succeed at anything in life you will need to find out what motivates you and what drives you to succeed.
Even the best psychologist in the world wouldn’t be able to tell you what motivates you and other people as the truth is everyone is different and motivated by different factors.
If no-body in the world had motivation the world would come to a halt as it is so important in every aspect of life; weight loss, business, sports, your personal life.
We are all able to deal with and work towards change and growth but if none of us had any motivation there would be no forward movement.
As an individual it is your responsibility to work out and learn what motivates you and then use that in your life.
It could be that your motivation comes from your family or your boss, but sometimes it is an internal motivation that you might have to improve a part of your life.
For example, it may be to lose weight or improve your personal relationship with your partner.
It’s Not Easy
Self motivation is not something everyone finds easy and it will depend on your desires and what changes you want to see in your life.
It is what is needed in order to push you to your goals and to carry on when you hit the stumbling blocks and failures that life can throw at you.
Failure is something that all of us will more than likely experience at one point or another in our lives and that is fine as it is human nature.
Even the richest people in the world did not achieve their goals without failure for example Donald Trump.
He went from being a millionaire, to broke, to a billionaire! Michael Jordan was axed from his high school basketball team and was told that he will not become a very good basketball player and now look where he is.
How you are going to handle the failure is what is important and a lot of successful people achieve their goals because with every failure, they are learning what to stop doing the next time.
The reason motivation is a foundation for success is because these successful people that do fail initially learn to see their failure as a stepping stone to success rather than it being the end of their goals and dreams.
Self motivation is a powerful and vital trait that we all need in order to be successful in whatever we want to achieve and if you can figure out what triggers your burning desire to reach your goal, you are half way to success.
