We can get encouragement and assistance from other people but the bulk of the duty in achieving a purposeful life lies within us. No one will write our script or play our part, or run our race. To overcome the hurdles of life, self-motivation plays a big role. Motivation is a subconscious process of summoning courage in order to achieve a positive goal. Depression sets in when there is lack of self-motivation. When you are down, you need to pick yourself up. Life is a marathon and not a sprint. Always have something positive to look forwarded to, and most importantly never forget the LOVE from your CREATOR, HE CARES AND IS ALWAYS THERE FOR YOU. Negative attitude is a setback, but with the right positive attitude you can overcome those setbacks.
We are the architect of our own lives and with a strong WILL POWER we can create a positive environment around us. Nothing happens without any effort, it is a law of life that we reap what we sow. To get love, we must give love. To get a good grade in school, we must read and take the assignments, test, and examinations seriously. In applying this principle of success, we must be willing to make sacrifices, by leaving our comfort zones. Mistakes are part of life, and are avoidable lessons. When certain negative things happen in life, we need to take a careful reflective look at it, and find a link to such habit or event, and which may lead us to the finding the solution. Absorb the lessons of life, those are the ingredients that form great people. The same wind blows us, but what we make of it differs, growth and success is a factor of the lessons we have learned and applied in life.
Choose happiness over depression. Happiness is not sold or bought, it is a choice. Don't attached your happiness to any thing other than contentment and peace of mind. If we put our happiness on material things, as soon as that thing or property vanishes, it takes the happiness along with it. Life is lived inwardly and expressed outwardly, let love, joy, happiness, and peace, spring from your heart. 100% of the outcome we get in life is as a result of the choice we make, while most decisions are free and simple, they may have very heavy implications. So think through every thought and decision, envision the outcome, before settling in. Anything that does not promote love, will plunge you further deep down. Each time we do the right thing, we are overwhelmed by a certain type of confidence, which helps boost self-motivation. In essence, we draw courage from past successes, and learn from failures. Don't forget the importance of self check and reflection, this could be done by setting aside a quite time to access your difficulties, successes and efforts. In a constantly challenging world, we need self-motivation as a tonic to stay afloat.
