Self Motivation Development - you win all round

Self motivation development - what a concept! Self motivation and self development are closely linked. Motivation without development can grind to a halt. While development without motivation is a non-starter. Another Catch-22 scenario?

Motivation and/or development?

Most of the time motivation is to achieve something. Self motivation development. Achievable, yes. But a dream or goal? Always an external objective? An external prize? Yet, what about us? Our very selves?

We all need (internal) self motivation development. Self development. And for that we need to be motivated. We need to be positive and have a positive attitude. We need confidence, a good self image and healthy self esteem. We need the discipline to put our efforts and motivation to good use.

We need a plan. A development plan to utilize our motivation. Our sense of self worth to propel us to personal growth and enhance our self motivation development. And that will complete our circle of action.

Time off? Getting started again …

Are you allowed time off? Of course you are. We all need rest and relaxation. And away from the center of action. How to get started again?

  • Pick out a small task and complete that
  • Dream that big dream
  • Get busy. Get active. But focused on your goal (not all over the place - like a released balloon as it expends its air in a crazy loop the loop around your living room!)
  • Do the best you can
  • Take ownership of your project. You are the owner
  • Realize it is impossible to fail - you can stop, be blown off course, meet hurdles - but not fail
  • Write down your goal - seeing it on paper makes it more real

Doing something will help. You'll feel good. After all you're helping your real project - YOU.
