Words DO mean things. One of the classic
Everyone can develop internal motivation. As the classic book Psycho-Cybernetics teaches, we all have a Success Mechanism that, once a goal is established, our brain will work day and night to point us in the direction of that goal. But two things must be stated about this mechanism. One, although it’s called a ‘success’ mechanism, if your self-image is such that you see yourself as a ‘failure’ or ‘loser’ this same mechanism will point you in the direction of where you see yourself. It can work both ways. So it’s important to have a positive self-image, one where we see ourselves as ‘winning’ in the end, so to speak. The second crucial thing to remember about this internal success mechanism is that action from you is required to fulfil any of the goals that you’ve set in front of yourself. No action equals no achievement (we’ll talk a little about this in the next post).
To summarize. Get a motive to change, then get inspired to take action. Easy peasy (not really, but sometimes just looking at the big picture makes things easier)
‘Till next time.
