How To Motivate Yourself

To motivate yourself, you must pay attention to what you are good at, to what you can do well, to what you are passionate about. Do not focus on what you are not good at.

Why is that? Because success comes from doing what you love. Because if you do not love what you are doing, if you hate what you are doing, you won’t get to where you are going. To get to where you are going, to achieve your greatness, you must follow what you love.

When Your Best Is Not Enough

You cannot achieve greatness without stretching yourself. If you are not getting what you want, you must do more than what you are doing right now. Because if you want more, you must do more. If you give more, you will get more.

No matter what, if you want to be successful, you must do more than what other people are doing. Because if you do what they are doing, you will get what they are getting. When you are doing your best, do not worry about failure. Just go for it. Just do your best. According to H. Jackson Brown, ” If you’re doing your best, you won’t have any time to worry about failure.” Do not focus on failure, focus on what you are doing.

If your best is not enough, then you can try these strategies:

“Put a few nickels in the machine.”

Do not expect to get the best if you don’t do your best. It is simple, but hard for so many people to follow. If you are not doing your best, if you are not giving your best, you are cheating yourself. You are not cheating your boss. You are cheating your future. According to Flip Wilson, “You can’t expect to hit the jackpot if you don’t put a few nickels in the machine.” If you want your life to change, you must put some “nickels in the machine.”

Develop yourself

If your best is not enough, you must develop yourself. You must do more than what you are doing right now. As Brigham Young famously put it, “Never let a day pass that you will have cause to say, I will do better tomorrow.” Do not let the fear of failure stop you from getting better tomorrow. To defeat fear, you must be brave. Are you brave enough to increase your best?

“Stay up and fight”

Life is all about fighting for what you want. If you don’t fight for what you want, someone else will help you. When you are faced with a problem, don’t abandon it. You must “stay up and fight” for what you want. If not, you are not going to get it.

Believe in what you are doing

if you don’t believe in what you are doing, you are not going to take it seriously. And to do your best work, you must believe in what you are doing. Anatole France once said, “To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.” If you believe in what you are doing, you will be good at it. Do you believe in what you are doing?
