As we continue to encourage one another, we have to remember to encourage ourselves. Self-motivation is essential during a time of set-backs and is what drives your commitment to your goals.
There is no denying that we are in an uncertain time where managing our goals and energy is hard. But this week I decided to take a step back from the negative news, the conspiracy articles, and the sad announcements, and used the space to examine my options for what remained in my control.
Since a young age I had the desire to write. I’ve picked up the hobby in moments of downtime, but this led to results being slow and lengthy. My experience is in marketing, yet I rarely mention my publication when people ask what I do. As an attempt to combine both my experiences – that of an author and that of a marketer – I set out to design a website for my book: The Summoning. I intend to expand this website as I extend my list of publications. A small project within my control that helps encourage a dream and better my experience.
That’s what this post is about: self-encouragement. For those who are feeling discouraged or having a set-back in their career/personal lives, list the things that remain in your control and make some positive changes. Seeing results can’t be the only reason for your motivation, just being able to do what you can is enough.
