“Anything can be had for the price of an effort.” -Plato
Self motivation is a term so often used by those who sell motivational material. there are literally hundreds of books that give us their formula that will inspire us and give us success through self motivation. In reality, very few of these work because self motivation is such a fleeting thing.
So what is the answer? How do we truly motivate ourselves? I have found one formula that works for me that I want to share with you. It will probably work for you as well.
What is the one thing you truly want? I have found that unless you get your dreams and desires down to the one thing you truly want, you have a whole host of things that never come to pass! Write down your goals and then go after that “one” you truly want. By focusing in on the one thing you truly want, you will be able to remember it. Remembering your goal gives it life and power.
If you want to be motivated, go after the one thing you truly want in life!
