Why We Must Empower Women Around the World
Empowering Women Speech By Michelle Obama
So far, I have written about many goals that many girls and women out there want to achieve. However, often the main problem is how to keep yourself motivated and committed towards achieving that goal. In today’s article I wanted to show you some of my personal strategies with which I keep myself motivated and that had really helped me in the past. You have to be your number one fan and number one reason for motivation. If you learn how to achieve that you will also be able to achieve all your other goals as well.
Sometimes, we don’t really know what we want. This is the first step that you must take. Take some time and explore your wishes and your expectations. Knowing what you want will definitely make it a lot easier for you to achieve your goals.
Let’s say that someone has already achieved the goal you want to achieve. You do not need to copy their actions per se, but it’s would be advisable to look back to what they have done right. This will also give you a path and an understanding of all the little steps that you need to take on this journey in order to achieve your goal. Find a couple of people that you can talk to about this and it will definitely help you.
The answer to this question is simple – it’s you! Your need to be your number one fan and your biggest supporter. Once you learn how to be your own rock in life nothing and no one could ever take that away from you. This is what people usually have in mind when they say that someone is independent and strong. If you want to become that person you need to learn how to be supportive of your actions when they are right and when they are wrong. Learning how you can learn from your own mistakes is also a skill, but more importantly you should learn how not to put yourself down when you do something wrong, but rather try to pick yourself back up and head out to a fresh start.
People with higher expectations usually achieve more in life. If you want to achieve more in life and if you want to motivate yourself to succeed, make sure you have high expectations. Having high expectations for yourself doesn’t necessarily exclude being forgiving with yourself. Expecting more will simply motivate you more, but learning how to be happy with what you have is also a crucial skill you must learn if you want to be happy.
Being motivated is not just about achieving a certain goal. You have to know why you are doing it. Making sense out of your actions will definitely motivate you more. For example, you want to learn a new language in order to be able to live abroad. This motivation will help you overcome any obstacles in your path.
