I recently had an email from someone who said that they are finding it hard to stay motivated and focused in their work, and as our emails went back and forth, he went into admitting that actually, he was stopping himself because he feared what others may say or think of him.
What a man! Take a bow the guy who dares to be honest. Is he walking around in fear? No. Does he have a fear that is holding him back and impacting on what he chooses to focus on, and therefore be motivated by? Hell, yes! Let's face it, who would be motivated by a thought that at the end of all your hard work you will fail and people will say "I told you so."
What would it do for you to know that their thoughts are exactly the same, how would you behave then?
As we come towards the end of 2013 and wonder what we have achieved and what we want for ourselves in 2014, now is a good time to reflect. Here are three questions that you can ask yourself to reflect with courage, and notice how you are already, uniquely you;
1) What are you doing today that you couldn’t have done 5, 3 or even 1 year ago? How have you stepped out in the last year that you might have found inconceivable before?
2) What new decisions have you made or what new actions have you taken that have resulted in you moving in a new direction in your life?
3) What are your wins this year, compared to last year at this time? How has your life improved? How haveyou improved? What have you done recently that you never thought you could do?
In other words, how have you continued to become a new and improved version of yourself?
