This morning when I awoke, I’d received a text message from someone asking, “What keeps you motivated?” I loved the question and was eager to answer. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying I don’t have days when I feel unmotivated. I remind myself repeatedly of my reason for doing what I do, and I remember things happen that we have no control over. I can tell you though, whenever I read my personal statement (which I shared with you yesterday) it re-ignites the fire within. Take a look at the video for day 16 and share in the comments what keeps you motivated.
I have both long and short term goals, and I hope you do you too. I realize that it is my ‘why’ for living that keeps me going, and if you look throughout history you’ll realize that those who follow through on their pursuits do so because of their ‘why’. So, if your focus is solely on ‘how to’ and ‘what you do’ you’ll lose motivation, especially if the ‘how to’ and ‘what you do’ is not giving you the results you want in the time frame you have set.
The next thing I shared with the person this morning about staying motivated was the importance of looking back on the things I have already achieved. The reason why I look back on the things that I have already achieved is because it reminds me of what is possible. If you have read my story of how things were for me as a child, you’ll understand what I am talking about. Another thing that it really does for me is it makes me feel good and having that sense of accomplishment always motivates me. As you can see, I don’t really rely on outside activities to motivate me. My motivation is more intrinsic. Yours should be too, because that’s the motivation that lasts.
I want to empower 1,000,000 young people to see within themselves the possibility of living with purpose. What is your BIG why?
IT IS POSSIBLE TO GO BEYOND LIMITATIONS. IT MAY NOT BE EASY, BUT IT IS POSSIBLE.
Thank you for your support!
