How To Be Motivated

How To Be Motivated

How do you motivate yourself when no one else believes in you? There is two answers. One is the politically correct one. One is the truth. It depends on which one you want to hear I'll. Give you both. Actually the politically correct answer is well, you got to just hustle, you got to just put your head down.


DoYou Really Have Support?

Here’s the truth. If you need someone to motivate you, you're, not motivated like high performance people. The ones that really make it in business and in their lives.

We are self-motivated. There are a lot of people there. Looking for motivation from their family and they use it as an excuse - My wife, my husband.... They don't support me. My parents, don't support me, my kids, don't support me or my friends don'support me.

Luckily Wealthy Affiliate does offers support. You got support within the community. We are your friends. We are like a family. Your sisters and your brothers. Mothers, fathers, and maybe, like the uncle who knows it all. Joke aside, my point is, we’re here for each other anytime.

Guess what? Do not expect support from your loved ones. Do not expect support from the people who are close to you.


Be Alone Without Being Lonly

You have to learn to be alone without being lonely. That's just the path. When you are becoming more successful, that's the biggest thing that holds most people back. It's not about how to do it, it's not about knowing what to do, it's not about I don't know what to do.

It's not the business idea. It’s the fact that they cannot operate on their own, being able to self motivate at the same time not having to get permission from the surrounding people that they wish.


Why Won’t They Support Me?

How come you don't know, I'm doing this for you? How come you guys don't support me? How come my family don't support me? How come they don't understand?

I don't get it. I want to make more money. I want to be more successful to better their lives. How come they don't understand?

Guess what. Most of the time they will never understand, you're expecting something that won't happen. That's what's holding you back, you're, expecting them to give you permission.


Support Yourself

Now the question is: why don't they support you? It's very simple. It's very simple: I go through this whole thing exactly in my own life. First of all, they don't understand because, most of us, we grew up in an educational system, where they teach you to behave. A certain way.

Go to school, get good grades and walk this path, get a degree, get a job. Work to you reach the age of 65. Get married, have kids get a big mortgage.

That's your life, anything that deviates from that, that's not the traditional path. Your taught that it’s stupid. That it’s dangerous. That it’s wrong. You shouldn't do that. If you do things differently you will fail.

Sounds familiar?


People Are Selfish

The surrounding people, your loved ones, they are afraid to lose. They’re afraid you would be more successful compared to them. They're afraid that they lose you, afraid that you leave them behind.

That's why you don't have their support. Do you really think they want you to be successful, to lift your dream, your dream life to travel, live in that beautiful home, to drive that car that they can never afford?

Do you really think they want you to be that successful, while they're living paycheck to paycheck?

NO!

They are jealous, have a lower self-esteem, its human nature.


Be Your Own Master

So what I'm saying is: don't even expect support. you're wasting your time. You do what you think is right. You do what you believe. You walk your own path, they might see it, they might not see it. This is YOUR life! It's not their life.

I do what I know I need to do so. So should you. If you need someone to motivate you're not gonna be successful. I don't need anyone to motivate me. I don't even need people to understand me. I understand me. I motivate me.

Wake up and do what it takes, and you will be successful. You want to be better than everybody else. You want to develop that skill. You need be self-motivated, look across any industry, sports, entertainment, business, anyone who's achieved excellence, usually motivate themselves, because they demand more from themselves than anybody else. Could you demand more from yourself than anybody else?

If so, don't wait. Just do it!

What do you think? Do you have support in what you do from the surrounding people? I don’t know about you, but I’m thankful for the support I got from my Wealthy Afilliate Family. Because one thing is for sure. When it comes to my online endeavors, that’s the only support I get besides from myself!

All the best,

That is so true Fred. If you can't motivate yourself, then you won't stay the course. Over 10 years ago when I started my craft business, all my lot thought I was wasting my time.
I didn't care. I loved it and kept going. It took longer then to reach success, I did not have resources like WA, in fact had rarely been on the internet and never on social media.
It was a massive learning curve, frustrating, annoying and wonderful. It could have been easier with help but I am very proud that I did it myself.
If I didn't motivate myself I would not be where I am now, building websites, writing content and still running the original business too.

That's the key. Never give up regardless of obstacles in your path. If you overcome those, you will harvest the reward.

You have done so indeed! Be proud of yourself and your achievements!

All the best.
