The Power of Self Motivation
The other day I heard the phrase, the power of self motivation and I just liked how it sounded. I realized the power it holds in helping you develop a mindset of abundance.
That got me to thinking about why you should work at developing a strong sense of motivation if you don't have it already. I've always had it. Ever since I was a kid, I remember wanting to put my best ability forward in all I did.
Things didn't always work out the way I wanted, but the effort was always there. That's the power of self motivation. When you can motivate yourself, the one thing you never lack for is effort. You try. You attempt.
You may not be any good at some of the things you try, but that's how you learn your strengths and weaknesses. When I was in sales, I learned I loved trying to help others but didn't like having to try and "convince" them to do something. I don't want to "twist your arm".
But that experience and my own power of self motivation led me to building this website. It provided the knowledge for me to know that this is the path for me, not sales.
I can lay out my feelings and ideas to you and you can run with them if you relate to me. If you can't relate to something I say here, you can click off to another site. That's OK with me because I may be able to help you in another area when you come back later. I just offer ideas up and you can keep the parts that have a positive effect on you.
The point here is that the power of self motivation reveals itself when it helps you attempt new things in order for you to discover what you're good at or bad at. If I discover I lack skills in an area, I don't look at that as a negative and neither should you.
You should figure out if you should develop those skills or just gravitate to building skills in another area where you already have some natural abilities.
A further example of the power of self motivation is that it's empowering. When you have motivation that comes from deep within you, you know that you control your fate. The achievement of abundance in your life isn't determined by someone else.
You don't need to rely on your family, the government or your friends to develop the life of your dreams. Your self motivated feelings help you see what you can do to make things happen.
The power of self motivation also helps make it possible for you to handle setbacks. When something goes wrong or doesn't work out, it hurts and you can feel pretty low.
But if you have a strong knowing of who you are and where you're ultimately going, it's quite easy to get back up on your feet and just keep "trucking" along.
If you're struggling inside or feeling like you just can't keep going because life has dealt you some pretty serious blows, I hope I've encouraged you to see the power of self motivation. I hope I've said something that gives you hope.
Even if my ideas on this cool phrase, the power of self motivation, have given you just a small inkling of an idea that you can make things better for yourself, then run with it!
Read some more of my ideas. Find ideas on other sites. Read an inspirational book. Fill yourself with the knowledge that you will end up living a life of abundance.
Develop your own power of self motivation.

nightmare of not reaching it. Do both."
