Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly.
– Stephen R. Covey
It would be great if we could catch motivation from others, but that’s rarely the case. Others can encourage you to achieve your dreams, but the motivation to actually follow through must come from within. You have to want something so badly that you’ll do whatever is necessary to succeed. Only you can fan the flames of motivation, no one else can do it for you.
✤ Decide what it is you want.
✤ Determine how to achieve that goal.
✤ Don’t allow others to talk you out of it. Self-Reflection Questions:
I. Is what I want important enough to keep working and not give up?
II. Am I motivated enough to continue despite hardships?
III. Will I make the firm commitment to continue toward my goals?
