Do you know that you can motivate yourself? Do you know that no one can motivate you? If you are waiting for someone to motivate you, you are going to wait forever. If you are waiting for someone to give you what you want, you will never get what you want.

The best way to get what you want is to know what you want. If you don’t know what you want, you can’t move yourself to get it. Don’t wait for someone to help you get what you want. You can get it yourself. You are stronger than you think. You are smarter than you think. Don’t bring yourself down. Don’t settle for less than you can get. If you do that, you are reducing your success.

You are the only person who can motivate you to get more done in your life. You have got to believe in yourself.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Our chief want in life is somebody who shall make us do what we can.” Yes, we need people to help us get what we want. But what if they are not there? What if no one is ready and willing to help us? What would you do? Are you going to be waiting for someone who is not at home? Don’t do that. If no one is there to help you, help yourself. If you push yourself, you can do more for yourself. If you do more than you have always done, you will get more than you have always attracted to yourself. The question is: Are you ready to do a little more than you have done before? If you are ready, you can do more for yourself.
