Stepping Stones: Self Motivation

Written by on August 2, 2014 in The Power of Resilience with 8 Comments

External motivation can go a long way toward helping you build a positive attitude and outlook on life, but the reality is that when it comes to pushing your way through challenging times or achieving your dreams and goals you are not always going to find the support and encouragement you need from other people.  So rather than waiting around for someone else to encourage you – or kick your butt to get you going – take the time to learn a few basic self motivation skills so that you can occasionally kick your own butt.

Stepping Stones Motivation


This is part of a special limited “Stepping Stone” series set to run through October and represents a collection of life lessons designed to inspire you to tap into your passion, purpose and inner strength.

Master your mindset and embrace ALL life’s challenges and opportunities!

    Great quote Marty! I think the most important word in this image, for me at least, is ‘BELIEVE’.

    It is easy to utter words of encouragement to yourself. It’s allowing them to crack that outer shell and seep into the essence of our being that is sometimes so difficult. Once we allow the words to sink, and we truly believe them, that is when the magic occurs. I had one of those a-ha moments this weekend on a front very similar to this quote. Thank you for reaffirming my positive experience 😉

  5. Self-motivation skills are so important to success. They have to be practiced daily. I’m sure you have heard the Zig Ziglar quote about bathing.
