How To Motivate Yourself

“Motivation almost always beats talent.”
~ Norman Augustine

I really believe that Augustine’s words are true and if you look at history, you know it is true. There are many people in the world with amazing talents who realize only a small percentage of their potential. We all know people who are living this truth.

We also know those epic stories, those modern legends about the early failures of such highly successful people as Michael Jordan and Bill Gates. We can look a little further back in time to Albert Einstein or even further back to Abraham Lincoln. What made each of these people so successful? Motivation.

We know this in our stomachs, but what can we do about it? How can we motivate ourselves? One of the hardest aspects of achieving success is staying motivated in the long run.

Motivation is not a coincidence or something that someone else can give you – you are the only one with the power to motivate. Motivation cannot be an external force, it must come from within as the natural product of your desire to accomplish something and your belief that you are capable of succeeding in your goal.

Positive, fun-focused goals are far more powerful motivators than negative, fear-based goals. While each is successful on its own, the right combination of both is the most powerful motivating force known to mankind.

Here are some tips and methods to motivate yourself:

~ Use an earlier defeat as a motivator. Remind yourself that you have nowhere else to go but up because you are already at the bottom.

~ Give yourself the power of responsibility. Remind yourself that the only thing holding you back is yourself.

~ List your achievements toward your long-term goal and remind yourself that intentions do not count, only action.

~ Do it today. Remind yourself of someone you know who died suddenly and the fact that there is no guarantee that tomorrow will come.

~ Let success motivate you. Find a picture of what success embodies to you and then take it out when you need motivation.

Reflect and experiment until you find the right combination of motivators for your personality and personal goals. I will leave you this last motivational quote:

“What drives me? What drives me the most is the desire to find my limits – and push them. ~ Richard Marcinko

Now go push your own boundaries and achieve success!
