What is self motivation?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Personal motivation is a routine in which you need to incorporate a fair amount of thinking and self-evaluation. It is crucial to go through this process because it will enable you to be aware of what your strengths are. This is also true for your weaknesses.

If you already know what your strengths are, you will be able to continue what you are already doing; and even improve on it.

Having said that, being aware of your weaknesses is just as essential. Because by way of this process, you will know which particular areas you should consider to improve.

If you know your weaknesses, you might be able to transform those opportunities that might assure you of a successful future.

If you are one of those who would like to start on personal motivation program, the first thing you will need is to put your mind into it.

By having a state of mind that you really do want to start on a personal motivation plan, and stick with it until you are successful, you will be inspired to aim for the highest peaks.

Defining your mind into something concrete will help you to look forward to the journey; and the results of what you are aiming for. For you to have a good mindset, it is best to clear your mind of negative thoughts, so that you can think clearly.

One of my favorite quotes is:

Once you have done that, you will have a better idea as to where to start with your personal motivation.

The best thing to do is to start with simple and small tasks. Personal motivation might be easy for some but for others it is a very difficult feat to achieve.

For those who feel that to attain personal motivation can be overwhelming, it is best to start with small and simple goals to achieve.

If you start small and simple, you will be able to achieve these goals, and it will be much easier and faster.

If some simple goals are set and achieved right from the beginning, you will be able to gain the self-confidence that you will need to face some bigger and bigger challenges ahead of you.

Another action that you can take which can help you get started with personal motivation is to keep learning. There must be a number of things that are of interest to you. You might like to explore them and who knows, it could change everything for you.

If you keep learning new stuff, it will enable you to learn new skills. This will help you fulfil most of the goals you have clearly set for yourself. Doesn’t it make sense?

Learning different things will also open your mind up to other possibilities you have never thought existed.

As you continue to explore various avenues, you never know what’s in store for you. Who knows? If you continue to discover new things, you may very well find your success niche along the way.

Experts agree that personal motivation is a very important factor for people who aim to succeed in their life. This is also important because it gives the person a sense of freedom in choosing the paths he or she should take.

Through personal motivation, people are giving themselves the opportunity to influence or govern their own destiny; which in time will help them to become the best kind of person they want to be.

In my early days of online marketing, I was an avid reader of motivational books. I have also listened to hundreds of cassette tapes, and attended a great number of seminars. These have helped me enormously in keeping me going when things where not going too well.

    Hello John!
    This is such a great article. I am a big fan of Peace Pilgrim. So pleased to see you included one of her quotes. I personally can relate to your comment of through motivation we are given the opportunity to influence our own destiny. That is so important. We are not the externalized society.Our world, our capability, is internal. And there is nothing we lack for, we only need to ask!
    I so enjoyed your advice and wisdom here. As one who was told I would never walk again, I listened to my own motivation and taught myself to walk. So your article is the basis for how we do indeed determine our own choice of destiny. Thank you so much, in peace and gratitude, ariel

      I wish you the very best with all that you are undertaking in life and I look forward to seeing you here often.

    Why is self motivation important? Because otherwise you won’t want to get out of bed in the morning. But when you are motivated to do so because you really want to or can’t wait to get out there and do what you like to do, it all becomes a lot easier. We should all be reading, listening and watching different motivational books/videos/audio programs on a daily basis so that we can deal with problems and stay in a healthy mindset. Motivation isn’t permanent, you don’t just do it once and it’s done. It’s just like a shower, you need to do it daily.

    • Thanks for visiting my website and for your comment Robert. You seem to know what it is and the importance of being self motivated. As you say, motivation has to be practiced on a daily basis to become more and more effective.

      I look forward to seeing you here often and if you have not done so yet, make sure to subscribe to my mailing list so that you will be the first to be informed when a new article is posted, which is quite often.

    • Excellent answer to my question, in just a few words Robert. Thanks for your input. As you say, we can find a lot of material on Amazon that can help also.

      I wish you the very best,

    From my study self motivation is, in its simplest form, the force that drives you to do things. The ability to motivate yourself self motivation is an important skill. Self motivation drives people to keep going even in the face of set-backs, to take up opportunities, and to show commitment to what they want to achieve.

    Thank you.
