Ten Terrific Self-Motivating Tips

by Mike Moore


No one can motivate anyone to do anything. All a person can do for another is provide them with incentives to motivate themselves. Here are ten very effective strategies to help you get up and get moving toward actualizing your enormous, untapped potential. 

1. Be willing to leave your comfort zone. The greatest barrier to achieving your potential is your comfort zone. Great things happen when you make friends with your discomfort zone.

2. Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Wisdom helps us avoid making mistakes and comes from making a million of them.

3. Don't indulge in self-limiting thinking. Think empowering, expansive thoughts.

4. Choose to be happy. Happy people are easily motivated. Happiness is your birthright so don't settle for anything else.

5. Spend at least one hour a day in self-development. Read good books or listen to inspiring tapes. Driving to and from work provides an excellent opportunity to listen to self-improvement tapes.

6. Train yourself to finish what you start. So many of us become scattered as we try to accomplish a task. Finish one task before you begin another.

7. Live fully in the present moment. When you live in the past or the future you aren't able to make things happen in the present.

8. Commit yourself to joy. C. S. Lewis once said, "Joy is the serious business of heaven."

9. Never quit when you experience a setback or frustration. Success could be just around the corner.

10. Dare to dream big dreams. If there is anything to the law of expectation, then we're moving in the direction of our dreams, goals and expectations.

The real tragedy in life is not in how much we suffer, but rather in how much we miss, so don't miss a thing.
