I often wonder what motivates us to stay productive. It’s one thing to produce a positive result and yet another to consistently repeat that positive action. Only motivation, which comes from two sources, can keep us consistent.
- Our own internal drive, self-talk, and attitude. How we speak to and treat ourselves affects what we are able to accomplish.
- External influence from family, friends, leaders, and other people we look up to or hold in high regard. The advice or guidance we receive from others affects what we feel about ourselves and our capabilities.
The question is, what direction does the motivation take us in? One that leads to positive, productive results or not. It is up to us to very intentionally make adjustments to what we allow into our thoughts/minds. We must make decisions about that kind of talk we entertain and learn to discard negative thoughts or words.
