When I lost all of my excuses, I found my results.

  1. Do not be a sheep.
  2. Do whatever it takes.
  3. Motivation works when you do.
  4. A little progress each day, adds up to big results.

You don’t need motivation. Motivation comes and goes. You have it today. You lose it tomorrow. You need determination.

Have you ever noticed that ‘motivation’ is one among the other most popular hashtag? So, many of motivational speakers, motivational books, lessons, quotes, stories, articles; the internet is so full of these. We are becoming sheep; losing our uniqueness. Like babies, we need a hand to hold us all the time, while walking down the street. We fear so much. It is not fear actually, but the lack of confidence. Dear people, I feel no shame in saying that – We do not need motivation, but permission to be who the hell we want.

Honestly, do you guys feel the same way? Right after reading a few motivations stories or quotes, my brain starts working; a few lines of a philosopher turn my brain on and I feel like having the required fuel for doing some action.

But here’s the secret. When it comes to success, motivation, desire, goals, productivity and other words that have become increasingly popular: you are going to remain who you are until you are no longer what you were. In simpler terms, nothing is going to change until you do. You change when you want to change. Turn your thoughts into action when the appropriate time comes.

Let no one discourage your ambitious attitude. You don’t need a fan club to achieve your goals. Be your own motivation.

You’re not a robot and you cannot simply conjure motivation when you do not have. This is life and often we have to go through a difficult period. It teaches you certain things sometimes, and sometimes you make to thyself for the most important lessons.

You cannot control everything. You can wake up at 5 am, but what is the use of waking up sad, and depressed. You can try hard every day, but you must allow yourself with a few short breaks. This is going to make you feel like a human being.

You cannot always decide the outcome. Simply cannot. You cannot always control the outcome and issues. You must learn that the unpredictability and uncertainty of something are two things that are beyond your control.

You do not need more motivation. You must not be inspired to action.

You do not need more motivation or inspiration to create the life you want. Before giving up anything for something, you need to surrender your shame. Should you really want to do something, throw your old beliefs out of the window.

Stop telling yourself that you cannot do this. You should not allow your shame to block your way; do not let your doubts hold you from pushing yourself to the extreme. Do take a closer look at every success story. There is one thing common in their stories – “higher the risk, higher the profit/recognition.”

Don’t read success stories, you will only get a message. Read failure stories, you will get some ideas to get success – Missile Man: Dr. A.P.J Kalam

You must not listen to people living in other circumstances and stages of life. Motivation has to come from within. I can guarantee you, no personality development course can boost your confidenceYou don’t need a new year to make a resolution.

The fact that you are not where you want to be, should be enough motivation. Stop worrying because worrying is like praying for something you really don’t want. There is a magic that you do not fully understand and which operate in unpredictable ways.

We must let things to do their job. Everything happens for a reason, they say. Maybe, nothing seems sensible today, but one day, everything will make sense. Believe in that. Allow yourself to believe in it.
