I am a firm believer in doing things for yourself. By this, I mean working hard to achieve your goals to make you proud of YOURSELF. But in order to do this you have to remain motivated. Sometimes it’s hard to motivate yourself with just the sense of self achievement. At times like this, I call upon the motivation of making those who mean the world to me proud.
Regardless of how much of an “I did it on my own” kind of person you are, there tends to be a supportive network behind the accomplishments. You probably had lots of support and positive influence from some special people, most likely from a young age. For many this is their parents. They worked hard themselves to give you the best life possible; they taught you life lessons and provided the means for you to have the opportunity to succeed and enjoy your life.
So when motivation is low, just think to youself…‘I am not only doing this for me, but I am doing this for THEM’. Make their efforts and sacrifices worth it.
Make THEM proud of you, whoever those special people may be.
Hopefully this gives you a kick up the backside to get back on that grind.
