Hi, I’m #MondayMotivation, and I want to ask you a simple question. Have you been self-motivating enough?
For a lot of people, the will to go on is a bit far fetched. They see self-motivation as an abstract concept that most likely comes with some kind of outside incentive. But the truth of the matter is, self-motivation has nothing to do with the outside and everything to do with the inside.
So what exactly is self-motivation? In simple terms, it is the ability to motivate and inspire yourself. A lot of times, this is void of outside motivation from family, friends, colleagues…it really is just you gassing yourself up. It is you pushing yourself to work harder, grow, excel, build, explore and become the very best version of yourself. Without self-motivation, you will end up depending on the inspiration from others to get things done. You will end up burning out when there’s no one to fan your flame. With self-motivation, you have to be the one to fan your own flame. And keep fanning that flame until you become a wildfire that no one can put out.
I know it’s the last week of February and you’re already getting those thoughts of “I’ll do it next month”. Guess what, next month isn’t assured. In fact, it would be naive of you to think that next month is assured. You need to start building yourself up today to achieve what you want to.
I’m not here to bring you down. I’m here with this #MondayMotivation to pick you up and help you see why you’ve been falling.
Let’s get to work!
