Lessons 2: Motivate yourself...

                        "A pearl is a beautiful thing that is produced by an injured life.
                             It is the tear [that results] from the injury of the oyster.
                         The treasure of our being in this world is also produced
                                 by an injured life.If we had not been wounded, 
                         if we had not been injured, then we will not produce the pearl." 

Few pointers to get you going............

 
Set a major goal, but follow a path. The path has mini goals that go in many directions.When you learn to succeed at mini goals, you will be motivated to challenge grand goals.

Finish what you start. A half finished project is of no use to anyone. Quitting is a habit. Develop the habit of finishing self-motivated projects.

Socialize with others of similar interest. Mutual support is motivating. We will develop the attitudes of our five best friends. If they are losers, we will be a loser. If they are winners, we will be a winner. To be a cowboy we must associate with cowboys.

Learn how to learn. Dependency on others for knowledge supports the habit of procrastination. Man has the ability to learn without instructors. In fact, when we learn the art of self-education we will find, if not create, opportunity to find success beyond our wildest dreams.

Harmonize natural talent with interest that motivates. Natural talent creates motivation, motivation creates persistence and persistence gets the job done.

Increase knowledge of subjects that inspires. The more we know about a subject, the more we want to learn about it. A self-propelled upward spiral develops.

Take risk. Failure and bouncing back are elements of motivation. Failure is a learning tool. No one has ever succeeded at anything worthwhile without a string of failures.
