Harness Intrinsic Motivation for Success
I choose to believe that you are not a product of your circumstances. You have the ability to do and be whatever and whomever you wish. The pivotal moment is when we choose to look beyond our past, beyond the conversations, difficulties, assumptions, and our own fears.
To believe that you are destined to be more than the obvious and easy and have the opportunity to give of yourself for the betterment of others. No one person will take this leap for you but many will be there to support you…
It is this that will set you apart.
We can choose to be resigned to others’ wishes and beliefs or we can choose the path of humility and partner with people that see our greatness and potential. Each choice you make and thought you have creates this intentionality.
Ultimately, this is a race of one.
If you don’t seize the opportunity, push beyond, or strive for greatness nobody will lose sleep.. except you. It is free will, if you want recognition, accomplishment, or success, it needs to be harnessed and driven by your own desires. yes, it takes a village but you need to start the community.
Intentionality, laser focus, grit, and resilience are the only things that will launch you. You must seek clarity, enlightenment, and connection more than safety and mediocrity. There are many who will support your path, guide your vision and hold you accountable, but only if you willingly take the first step.
The only difference between you and the other person is clarity and drive. Become clear as to what you want and what you are willing to do to get there. Acknowledge the sacrifices and gains, solidify the “why” and challenge your thinking. Extrinsic motivators are short-lived, it is the intrinsic motivators that will sustain you.
Knowledge, connection, and service are yours and yours alone. They will become part of your story and foundation for success.
We never wake up with the wish to be mediocre, yes, many of us find ourselves in that space but I would argue it is you that settling for “good enough”. Identify the things that fuel you and spark your fire, then filter out what no longer sustains your excitement and potential.
Hold tight to your vision, get clear, and focus.
My Challenge to You:
How about this week you think about what would be possible if there were no constraints, judgments, or second thoughts?
Who could you be and what could you do if you believed anything was possible?
I would love to hear what you come up with…
