Don't be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.
Roy T. Bennett
“Wanting something is not enough. You must hunger for it. Your motivation must be absolutely compelling in order to overcome the obstacles that will invariably come your way.” —Les Brown
“You can look for external sources of motivation and that can catalyze a change, but it won’t sustain one. It has to be from an internal desire.” —Jillian Michaels
“In my experience, there is only one motivation, and that is desire. No reasons or principle contain it or stand against it.” —Jane Smiley
“Understanding motivation is one of the most important things we can do in our lives, because it has such a bearing on why we do the things we do and whether we enjoy them or not.” —Clayton Christensen

Andrew Carnegie said it best with his quote “People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.”
There are several keys to building self-motivation.
* Work towards a cause.
* Don’t compare yourself to others.
* Make the conscious effort to not give up.
* Don’t live in your past failures or successes.
* Utilize positive thinking.
There are times when you may need the motivation to get motivated. Positive thinking may not be doing the trick. What should you do? Consider these suggestions:
* Write down your plan for improvement.
* Briefly think about your past successes.
* Read books that promote self-motivation.
“The best motivation is self-motivation. The guy says, ‘I wish someone would come by and turn me on.’ What if they don’t show up? You’ve got to have a better plan for your life.” —Jim Rohn
“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.” —Vince Lombardi
“You can motivate by fear, and you can motivate by reward. But both those methods are only temporary. The only lasting thing is self-motivation.” ―Homer Rice
￼”Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.” —Wayne Dyer
