To be in a constant state of motivation, you need to be your biggest motivator & know how to make your motivation last long
You know those things that only lift you up for a while and then Bahm! You’re back to where you are?
Yes. That’s a motivational quote. They make you feel like you can rule the world and every fear disappears until reality comes back again.
That felling sucks and you feel lost and feel like giving up, well, you’re not the only one. I go through it, you go through it, and they go through it.
I’m not telling you that to start a pity party though, what I’m going to tell you is that it happens to me. And i hate that feeling
I also don’t like not liking things that aren’t important so I figured a way to make my motivation last, and its still using motivational quotes.
There is a theory behind it I’m sure, but you don’t need that, you need the solution to making your motivation last.
And the shortest version of the solution is. Link it to a story, add an emotional attachment to the motivational quote you love that always makes you feel like you can concur the world.
That thing that motivates you, your why, your passion, and purpose in life.
To me it’s like a story, every quote serves its purpose, you can make your own story, using the same method.
This is my story:
How to be your biggest motivator & make the motivations last long
1. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Shopping without looking at price tags:
This works for me in terms of career, it means success for me and well a good career pays well right? Even if its income from my blog. I see great success. I know I will have to work for it. That image pumps me. I’m feeling all giddy inside right now.Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Shopping without looking at price tags: Click To Tweet
2. The same boiling water that softens the potatoes hardens the egg:
This means that we go might go through the same experiences with people and still turn out differently. It all depends on who we are and the principles we hold. So don’t just be like everyone else while going through something.
Following someone’s, footsteps are not the way to go. Just coz it works for them and doesn’t work for you doesn’t mean you should stop. Your outcome, even if you go through something is better.
It only matters what you’ve become after, not what you went through. You decide for yourself whether to keep going or give up.The same boiling water that softens the potatoes hardens the egg Click To Tweet
3. When God pushes you to the edge of difficulty He either teaches you to fly or catches you when you fall:
I’m a firm believer in God and I believe that with His guidance everything will be all right. Everything in this life is a test and when you’re going through difficulty He helps you in ways you never thought possible, we call them miracles right?
Or when you hit rock bottom, he shows you how to lift yourself up and shows you a better way. If you can’t believe in yourself, believe in God, he has your whole life planned, so trust him, ask for the best and let everything work out.When God pushes you to the edge of difficulty He either teaches you to fly or catches you when you fall Click To Tweet

Some people are just going to hold you back, as you become better, they will try to guilt you into going back to where you once were.
