How To Improve My Self-Motivation – Part Four 

Self-motivation is complex. It’ is linked to your level of initiative in setting challenging goals for yourself, your belief that you have the skills and abilities needed to achieve those goals and the reasonable expectation that if you put in enough hard work, you will succeed (or at least be in the running, if it’s a competitive situation).

There are a number of factors are necessary to build the strongest levels of self-motivation one of which is developing a motivating environment.


A critically important part of being self-motivated is having good levels of self-assurance and self-confidence.

Being highly self-assured means you will set challenging goals for yourself and generate high levels of resilience when you encounter setbacks. Put simply failure will not stop you. You will develop a strong belief in your ability to succeed and to reach your goals.

Goals must be seen as a challenge and not as those with low self-confidence see them as beyond reach and a real s de-motivating force.

The more effort you put onto achieving your goals the more likely it is that you will achieve.

Look at the following pointers and revisit them regularly;

  • Think about the achievements in your life.
  • Examine your strengths to understand what you can build on.
  • Determine what other people see as your strengths and key capabilities.
  • Set achievable goals for yourself, work to achieve them, and enjoy that achievement.
  • Seek out Mentors and other people who model the competencies, skills, and attributes you desire.

Good Luck!
