When the challenges of life come, what do you do? How do you manage them? No matter where you are, who you are and what you have, challenges will always come! Sad, but true. A Nigerian musician Chief Ebenezer Obey said in one of his songs, no matter how sunny or bright the day may be, there will be some dark patches in the sky. It is true!
The truth is this, there is a direct relationship between challenges and self-motivation. The bigger the former, the bigger the latter should be.
Self-motivation is a life-changing factor that makes people wonder how you keep going, against all odds. It is the factor that draws helpers to you when they see how willing and single-minded you are to succeed. It is the factor that makes your enemies to get scared of you, and wonder what spirit moves you. It is a factor that makes God love you because self-motivation is linked to faith and when you have faith, you please God.
Let me add that, it hastens emotional healing which transforms to improvement in physical wellbeing.
The possessor of self-motivation thinks faster out of the box to solve their personal challenges. So, if you think you have challenges, it’s okay; but you have a responsibility to solve it. The world cares less about how big your challenges are, they only want to see results! Sorry, if this sounds too harsh. It is a bitter truth.
Please note that self-motivation is no magic! It is acquired, nurtured and integrated into one’s existence. It is an indispensable tool that helps you deal with life’s hard times.
Self-motivation does not necessarily stop you from crying when you are heart-broken; remember, you have emotions too. It helps you to promptly wipe your tears and PRESS on! When some people tell you where they used to be, and where they are now, you wonder how they overcame some seemingly impossible challenges. This is why carriers of self-motivation cannot always explain their success process as much as the success stories. They can tell you where they left and where they are but some aspects of their stories are just amazing and miraculous.
When self-motivated persons are shaken by challenges, they tell you boldly “No Shaking”, and you know what, they mean it! They have string faith!!!
I encourage you to be self-motivated. Let motivation come from within you. Be strong! And you know what? Everything will be alright. Don’t ask me how. Just believe!
