Motivation

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Motivation
“People are like sticks of dynamite; the power’s on the inside but nothing happens until the fuse gets lit.” ~ Mac Anderson
Get fired up and there’s nothing beyond your reach.
“Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
By nature we are curious and we have a built-in drive to explore, learn and creatively express ourselves. Yes, we need time to rest and reflect and appreciate ... but if we are true to ourselves the wheel turns and it's time for our next venture.
“Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly.” ~ Stephen R. Covey
It’s like the parent saying, “Do your homework,” and the child starts doing it reluctantly. But if you understand the reason why, and it’s a good reason, you are naturally enthusiastic.
“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” ~ Thomas A. Edison
Of course it’s easy to give up and blame circumstances and others - or oneself. But those who succeed big-time routinely tell us that success was anything but overnight, that they worked long and hard to get where they are, that they had every reason to give up but didn’t. And it paid off. The key is to keep that vision burning bright in our minds and to keep on learning along the way.
“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.” ~ Norman Vincent Peale
What cuts down your confidence? Largely your own self-talk. When it’s exaggerated, pessimistic, intolerant, judgmental, generalizing, fearful - or anything that makes you feel down - then know that is your conditioned ego speaking, not your true creative and expansive self. Throw all that stuff away and give yourself some self-love - a big supportive hug for you!
