You have to let go of destructive thoughts, otherwise, you end up becoming that negative person that no one wants around.
Of course, it is perfectly normal to have doubts. But regularly assuming the worst is already a problem.
You already set your mind to thinking that things will never work to your favor, and you subconsciously sabotage your chances for true happiness.
Being overly confident is not smart either. Thinking that it’s in your fate to do something great can make your forego all the efforts to truly achieve what you want. Do not pin your hopes to only one thing and know that it is better to work hard to get what you want.
People will respect you more when they see that you are working just as hard as they do. Yes, you may be a natural at something, but you never assume that your talents will work for you all the time even when you do not try hard enough.
When things backfire, you can really bruise your ego and hurt your self-esteem. You have to plan for your future and anticipate what could happen. There is always something to worry about, and if you think that life is a bed of roses, you are gravely mistaken.
Of course, this is also not to say that you become a pessimist. It simply means that you have to plan for every possibility but also know that you have to take risks if you ever want to achieve anything.
Believe in yourself but do not be boastful, trust in your abilities but never be complacent
If you want to be that person who inspires others to follow in your footsteps, earn their respect. Should you find yourself managing people under you, never use fear to motivate them.
People may follow your advice when they fear you, but they can also just as easily betray you. Why? Because they never liked you to begin with. Some people will actually jump at the chance to put you in your place once they know that they can gain power over you.
How to Motivate Yourself and Others
To inspire others to be just as excellent, you have to give them a sense of purpose. Make them understand how valued they are and that the goal can only be achieved when everyone works together.
So when you feel that the energy is leaning towards the negative, take a step back and try to see the entire picture. Just as you are working towards achieving your dreams, so are the others. Ask help when needed and extend your services to the others as well.
You become a more motivated person when you know that the others are rooting for you. Should you commit a mistake, these people will be there to immediately help you pick up the pieces. To get kindness, you have to give it.
Be that person who cheers for their peers when they achieve success. Never be jealous of what others have because you also have unique talents of your own. Remember, certain accomplishments can be made when different talents are combined.
As long, you know that you have something to contribute, you will have people who will watch your back as well.
