The thing many of us most desire in life.
It’s something we feel would unlock our greatest capabilities and potential.
Even though it’s something we so desperately crave…
…we look towards external motivation instead.
There is nothing wrong with this form of motivation.
Sometimes external motivation gives you that extra push to become self-motivated
I look towards that “extra push” in the gym when I’m blasting my hardcore music…
But if we are looking to become great…
We need more than just an “extra push”.
Fortunately, there is something much more powerful than external motivation.
Becoming self-motivated is who you are
It’s the difference between the current results you’re getting in life and your identity.
You have an identity about how you are in different areas of life.
If your life is not in alignment with your current identity, that drives massive motivation.
If your current identity for yourself – your belief system — is that you should be making several hundred thousand dollars a year and you’re not…
Then there is a massive difference between the results you’re having and what you believe should be happening which creates a sense of discomfort deep within’ you.
In order to become self-motivated we much act on the discomfort we feel when we are out of alignment
In order to become in alignment with your financial identity, you must take consistent action with someone who makes several thousand dollars a year.
Soon, the actions you take consistently will become a habit…
Then it just becomes effortless.
What areas in your life do you need to become disciplined long enough for it to become a habit of who you are?
Are the things you’re saying about yourself sabotaging your subconscious mind and eroding your possibility of having a powerful identity?
Become self-aware enough to understand who you are and where you should be
Act on it.
