When you look in the mirror, who do you see? Clearly, you see an image of yourself. What I mean is, who is staring back at you? Are you satisfied with the progress of that person? Are you proud of that person staring back at you? If not, that may be the very thing holding you back. How you see yourself is an indication of where you will eventually end up. A negative self-image is the means to a destructive outlook and disparaging end. If you don’t identify the winner within, you will never achieve your dreams.
The person you see in the mirror must be held accountable. It is easier to slack off when you aren’t being held accountable. Countless college students, after matriculating from high school, have the toughest time transitioning into a collegiate culture. When your parents no longer wake you and Ramen noodles replace moms’ spaghetti, it suddenly hits you; you’re forced to fend for yourself. The successful people in college were the ones who did it without external motivation. They didn’t need anyone to tell them what to do or how to do it, they just did it. Channel your inner collegiate and motivate yourself to get it done.
Stop looking for motivation outside of self. You control your own destiny. The amount of work you invest is exactly the amount of results you should expect to produce. Low to no effort always results in failure. Maximize your efforts to produce miraculous results. Your dreams are necessary. You executing them are even more necessary. Believe in yourself; you simply can’t count on anyone else doing it for you.
If you don’t show up for life, you’ll eventually flunk out.
