You Know You Are Self-Motivated When…

  • You avoid taking the easy way out and apply yourself consistently to whatever it is you need to do.
  • You get up early in the morning fresh with energy to achieve the goals you have set out for that day.
  • You’re constantly thinking of ways to improve what you do and how you do it.
  • You don’t procrastinate; you attend to every task, no matter how small, building momentum.
  • You concentrate on creating order in your life, not cutting corners, or trying to evade responsibility.
  • You’re eager to make your contribution at home, in school, or at work, and people know that you give it 100% of your effort.
  • You don’t make excuses for why things aren’t done, or done poorly; you take responsibility and accountability, and resolve to improve yourself.
  • You look at every task as a learning opportunity, applying your talents and skills, to achieving present and future goals.
  • You keep in mind the idea of first things first; using your time and your energy for whatever will advance your interests, and create progress.
  • You refuse to allow yourself to achieve at a lower standard than you’re capable of.

” Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.” – Benjamin Franklin
