One of the major key to move on, to get better every day is self-motivation. You cannot hide in your room, lock the door, and wait for someone to knock the door and motivate you. It simply does not work that way.
I am a big fan of Mr. Jim Rohn. In one of his recorded seminar, he said
Being broke is bad; hmm and stupid. But the worst is being broke, stupid and sick.
A man cannot use the same motivation all the time. He needs many, depending on the time and place.
This morning, I woke up at 5:00 am and started my traing as normal. Problem? I wanted to stay in bed. Even when I got to the gym, I did not want to start. Because the weather was so nice, cool wind, fresh air.
I suddenly remembered that quote. I tried to take advantages of it. I used it to give me good reasons to start the training as planned.
I Work Hard
Because I do not want to end up as a broke. I am not sure that I want to be rich. But definitely I do not want to be broke.
I Study A Lot
Because I do not want to be stupid. I do not have to be another Einstein. But definitely not a fool, not a stupid man.
I Train Hard
Because I do not want to be sick. When we are sick, nothing matters. The only wish is getting better, again. Without heath, we are useless.
The 3 Broke, Stupid and Sick – BSS
The 3 Work, Study and Train – WST
By writing them down gives me a clear picture of options. I must choose one of them. Hey I am not stupid. I have chosen the second one WST to keep me away from BSS.
It works for me. It might work for you.
Have a good day!
