What is the art of Self motivation ? For some living in the status quo is not enough, they strive to be like the top ten percent. For others, we have to get out of our comfortable, sedentary and time wasting schedule of spending too much time on things that, in the end, do not really matter. For Les Brown, a motivational speaker, staying motivated requires 6 key practices…
-Self Mastery- If you invest time in yourself because you have unlimited potential and the fact is what you put in is what you get out.
-Stop Settling-Ask yourself is there anything you have been settling for ? your lifestyle, your career, your relationships..take time to reflect and make your self believe that you can achieve anything you desire if you act on it. Preparation, hard work and persistence is key.
-Develop a Health Plan- The most important part of being successful and wanting that drive is to be in good health. Value your body, worship it like a temple and carry yourself with your head held high.
-Live Life with Energy and Passion- be happy with what you have achieved, never forget the the journey is the most valuable and enriching part of our lives. Smile and mean it.
-Monitor Your Inner Conversations- Talk yourself UP. We often find ourselves feeling fearful, negative and all this translates into physical limitations we put upon ourselves. Our biggest challenge is with ourselves.
-Know Why You Are Doing It- it is important to know why you are doing it because if you do not know, you may easily lose spirit and motivation to keep going. Write it down and ask yourself why do you deserve it? When you feel like you want to give up, read that list and it will help build you up.
