Self motivation Will Take You Where You Want to Go

Mar 31, 2008
Self motivation, a most essential concept, is difficult to master because we have so much negativity to face, be it from ourselves or others. If self esteem is low, creativity is stifled. If you get excited about your idea, it is often squashed by the negativity of others before you even finish your pitch! Don't be discouraged! The self motivated person takes it in stride, grows stronger from it and produces! Here are some ideas to promote positive energy and encouragement for you.

Embrace your strengths and weaknesses and work around them. Focusing on them creates negative energy which defeats your plan. Knowing your self concept allows you to choose tasks and methods that showcase your skills and motivation. As you achieve these tasks, enjoy the moment of accomplishment and you will be encouraged to go further.

Recognize success and reward yourself! Once you have set those tasks and put them to paper, review them each day and cross off the ones you completed for an instant pat on the back. The feeling of accomplishment makes you want to do more! Otherwise, you will be left droning from task to never ending task, unrewarded, feeling dread for the next day.

Dissect those great big tasks and turn them into smaller more manageable ones. It will eliminate a lot of stress and promote quicker starts as well as quicker completion.

If you are surrounded by people who detract from your life and dampen your success, pull away from them. If you cannot cut ties completely, it is essential to keep them at a distance until appropriate times when they cannot be harmful.

Avoid tension and anger. They slow you down and accomplish nothing. If something goes wrong, take your lumps and move on.

Be good to your body. Feed it and exercise it. Mind and body are powerful together when well maintained, yet we often neglect them in favor of that few extra minutes of work. That is a bad plan because if the body quits performing, your productivity ends.

Although difficult to keep yourself motivated, it is also easier because it depends on only you. So turn the negativity around, stay on track, reward yourself, and get ready to achieve your dreams.
