Morning Cup of Joe – Self-Motivated


My mother always had dreams of me becoming a medical doctor; a profession I have absolutely no interest in. Could I have been a doctor? Without a shadow of a doubt. Would I have been happy? Probably not. Instead, I choose to do something that makes me happy. I choose to do something that I would do for free. I choose to do something that I am truly passionate about. I choose to improve the lives of those around me by serving as an example of what could be in spite of the devastating events that can occur in one’s life.

One of the key ingredients to experiencing wild success is self-motivation. While others around you serve a definite purpose in shaping your limitations, it is ultimately up to you to determine how far you will truly go. You are uniquely made the way you are for a reason. Focus on your strengths and what you were born to do, not what others think you should do. After all, you are responsible for your own fate.

What specifically motivates you to be better than you already are? What explicitly drives you to accomplish your goals? Is it your children? A spouse? Is it the possibility for advancement at your current place of business? Is it to gain the validation of a parent? Is it a fear of failing? Whatever it may be, if you don’t already know, it is imperative that you discover what motivates you to be better. The answer is usually in the mirror.

Your motivation to be better should come from no one and nothing else but yourself. Don’t worry, I’ll be here to help give you a push when you need it most but ultimately it’s up to you.

To The Top!
