What Is Self-Motivation Part 3

Self-motivated individuals have high levels of self-esteem.

They think highly of themselves in terms of their ability to do things. They believe in their own potential and are determined to achieve their goals no matter what. With their positive self-esteem they are less afraid of failures and are more willing to take evaluated risks whenever they think they have to.

Self-motivated individuals rarely get tired of doing and trying.

They always exert extra effort when it is needed to deal with a project.  Their bodies are reservoirs of energy and enthusiasm to do the things they want, believing that all these contribute to their goal, which is to succeed in whatever the task or goal is.

Why Do Some People Lack Self-Motivation?

Self-motivation can be hard to obtain or maintain if a person lacks confidence. If they do not believe that they will succeed then it can be difficult to convince them that they can.

Another reason why some people lose their self-motivation is due their lack of focus. If you are not certain about what you really want in life, what you want to achieve now and what you want to be in the future then self-motivation will also be too hard to consistently maintain.

It is important that your short-term, mid-term and long-term goals are all in alignment, or your subconscious mind will thwart your efforts and diminish your self-motivation.
