10 Terrific Self Motivating Tips

By Mike Moore

No one can motivate anyone to do anything. All a person can do for another is
provide them with incentives to motivate themselves. Here are ten very effective
strategies to help you get up and get moving toward actualizing your enormous,
untapped potential.

* Be willing to leave your comfort zone. The greatest barrier to achieving your
potential is your comfort zone. Great things happen when you make friends with your discomfort zone.

* Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Wisdom helps us avoid making mistakes and comes from making a million of them.

* Don’t indulge in self-limiting thinking. Think empowering, expansive thoughts.

*Choose to be happy. Happy people are easily motivated. Happiness is your
birthright so don’t settle for anything else.

* Spend at least one hour a day in self-development. Read good books or listen to inspiring tapes. Driving to and from work provides an excellent opportunity to listen to self-improvement tapes.

* Train yourself to finish what you start. So many of us become scattered as we
try to accomplish a task. Finish one task before you begin another.

* Live fully in the present moment. When you live in the past or the future you
aren’t able to make things happen in the present.

* Commit yourself to joy. C.S. Lewis once said, “Joy is the serious business of
heaven.”

* Never quit when you experience a setback or frustration. Success could be just
around the corner.

* Dare to dream big dreams. If there is anything to the law of expectation then we are moving in the direction of our dreams, goals and expectations.

The real tragedy in life is not in how much we suffer, but rather in how much we
miss, so don’t miss a thing.

Charles Dubois once said, “We must be prepared, at any moment, to sacrifice who we are for who we are capable of becoming.”

    Hossien,

    Thanks for your comment. Though we don’t know for sure what will happen in future, setting goals and organizing our efforts to achieve them will definitely help us make it happen in ways we would like it to. If you find a goal doesn’t suit you any more you can always change it. But beware that it should be a decision made from careful consideration and analysis, rather than out of an easy excuse to give up. Sometime it’s not the problem of the goal itself, but rather the strategy, or the execution is the problem we should deal with.

    I have struggled with poor levels of motivation for a while, but for me, keeping things in perspective and not worrying about things beyond my control have really helped to keep my mind focused. Motivation really is daily task, I used to think it was one of those “set and forget” aspects of my life, but how wrong I was! Everyday, I’m getting better at it, so thank you kindly for the points you have given to us here. kind regards.
