You Go Girl!
Posted on 20 January 2014
Self-motivation is complex. It's linked to your level of initiative in setting challenging goals for yourself; your belief that you have the skills and abilities needed to achieve those goals; and your expectation that if you put in enough hard work, you will succeed (or at least be in the running, if it's a competitive situation).
Four factors are necessary to build the strongest levels of self-motivation:
Self-confidence and self-efficacy.
Positive thinking, and positive thinking about the future.
Focus and strong goals.
A motivating environment.
