1. Motivation is needed most for that first step.
People tend to forget that the beginning is always the hardest. Why? The foundation of anything needs to be the strongest point so the process will be much smoother. Before you can cruise or have a flow, a robust momentum must be created.
You should bear in mind that the best foundation is having a strong and firm belief system. Here is where you will probably find the most pain, barriers, and hardships. Be open to changes but with a balance of believing firmly that you can accomplish what you set out to do. You must not only believe, you must KNOW that it is possible.
2. Discipline is motivation on autopilot.
Before the jet can continue on its path, it doesn’t need as much fuel anymore. Don’t get me wrong, it still needs fuel to go, but just not as much. It’s the same with us humans. After trying over and over then failing, we tend to think we need the same amount of motivation that we began with. This is another common mistake.
3. Motivation requires a captain aboard.
Accountability is needed, along with guidance from mentors, books, or somewhere else. Just make sure you have that special someone who has the knowledge, stature, and wisdom to help you move from point A to point B. They can be vital in your success. Always be grateful to the things and people who aid in getting the results you once prayed for.
4. Map the motivation route.
How can you arrive somewhere of which you don’t have a route for? How can you have a route without mapping it? You must know where you’re headed. If you have no idea where that is, no one can help you and your fuel will be wasted. Set out with one specific goal then work towards that. People make this mistake then give up afterwards.
5. Truly Believe.
Invest in you and the power waiting to burst out. The world needs you and what you have to offer. The grind is never over, so keep on with it.
Always remember to try.
