#6 How to boost self-motivation

Updated: May 2, 2020

in a easy & sustainable way

We all have goals, but not all of us achieve them. Take New Year’s resolutions, for instance, while 93% of people set them, only 8% of them actually find the inner-drive to follow through. People like Sir Edmund Hillary, Michael Jordan, Steve Jobs and Oprah Winfrey may seem like super humans, but they’re just like us. The only difference is that they stayed motivated until they achieved their goals.

You probably have, like me, read and watched tons highly rated motivational stories, books and talks, and got all pumped up feeling like a newly invented self afterwards. The questions are how long did that feeling generally last; and where can we find motivation to keep reading and watching them?

You may also find plenty of self-motivation techniques and tools on the internet, for example, keep learning, challenge yourself, eat healthy and move daily, the list goes on. It sounds great, but don’t you need motivation to do all of that in the first place? I don’t know anyone who can keep learning, or stay healthy without being motivated?

When we rely on external sources to motivate ourselves, it is often not sustainable, because the power of control is not in our hands. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we have the drive within ourselves and can turn to it whenever in need?

It’s absolutely possible. All you need are commitment and sunshine!
