Motivational experts suggest that no-one can ever be motivated to do something unless they actually know for themselves that they can do it, and feel in their hearts that they want to. In other words, you can only ever depend on yourself to give you the drive you need to get going.
Your self-motivation (or lack of it) will influence your happiness and success in every area of your life and so I am delighted to tell you that it is possible to raise your game by using a great technique called positive self-talk. By “talking yourself up” (rather than down) you can change any negative beliefs and attitudes that might be stopping you moving forward with confidence. Try repeating the following positive, motivational statements. ◆ I feel great and ready for anything. ◆ I am determined and motivated and nothing stops me. ◆ I am ready to try something new and exciting. ◆ I believe in myself and have all the confidence I need.
Don’t worry if you don’t believe them to be entirely true for you at the moment. Positive affirmations work by contradicting and eventually replacing negative self-talk. As you say these statements, just notice how your energy rises.
