All of us experience motivational slumps. This is like a continuous cycle — motivated for a period of time, fall out and then have to build things back up again. Our drive is constantly bothered by negative thoughts. But, we have to keep moving forward.
Indeed, motivation is an important trait a leader can have. Without motivation, none of our responsibilities would work. To be self-motivated is to unleash your true potential.
What can we do to achieve self-motivation?
- Thinking about good things is a nice start. Have the right attitude. You cannot control your circumstance, but you can choose your attitude towards your circumstances.
- Have a clear, exciting goal.
- Learn whenever you can. The more you learn, the more confident you become.
- Remind yourself of the consequences of not getting things done.
Being self-motivated means being driven, focused, sharp and smart enough not to be manipulated. It also means getting things accomplished and realizing your goals without needing a push from someone else.
If you are self-motivated, you can be more creative. You will produce the quality of work that only passionate individuals can, and they do it whenever they need.
