Self-discipline is Inner Motivation

never fade (5)

We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.  ~ Jesse Owens

Self-discipline is inner motivation to make the changes you desire in life. The external world will never give you the inner drive to move forward and overcome your obstacles. This must come from within the Millennial.

Self-discipline is being 100% laser focused on the goal. The external world may be filled with negative critics and naysayers, but your dream is your dream. No one else can make things happen in your life.

Introverted Millennials can rely too much on other individuals to give them permission to be a winner in life. They can get lost in trying to find approval, praise, and validation from significant others in their lives. It’s easy to be co-dependent and lose themselves in someone else.

Introverted Millennials may be noble and loyal to their peers, believe they need to wait for their peers to be at the same level of growth, evolution, and hold themselves back from going the extra mile to succeed.

Wherever the Introverted Millennials family or friends are in life, they must understand it’s perfectly acceptable to reach their full strength and personal power. By leading the way, they set the example for their peers. Peers will automatically follow if you show them the way of inner courage, strength, and ambition to fly.

The goal is self-reliance and Interdependence. Let go of the people pleasing modality, and co-dependency.

Be independent instead of relying on others to find the answers for you in life. Waiting around on other individuals to enjoy life holds you back. It can even be a form or procrastination.

This is difficult at times, but the natural way of life is growth, inner transformation, and in order to be your authentic self, the Millennial must follow their mind, heart, and guts. Personal power is thriving and choosing life. Reaching upward into positive thinking, and taking positive action every step of the way.

What will you sacrifice to get where you want to be in life? There are times when peers may be making bad choices and following the crowd may end in dead ends.

Depression and Anxiety only ends when you do something different than those around you. As Individuals, every Millennial must blaze their own trail.

Each one of you has inner gifts, talents, and needs to meet your own personal growth. What are your dreams? What do you need to do to get there? Who you surround your life with determines whether they will self-sabotage themselves and self-sabotage you in the process. Find peers who encourage you, cheer you on, and support you in meeting your goals.

If you depend on anyone else to motivate you, you will always fall short. You will always be disappointed, because their dreams aren’t the same dreams you hold in your heart.

If you have Depression and Anxiety, if you’re surrounding your life with other depressed and anxious people you kind of get stuck in the same mindset. Find another group which lifts you up in the right direction and choose life.

When you push yourself out of your comfort zone, get past your fears, you can find yourself in a better place. Find a group you can share resources with and those who are a few steps ahead of you in life improving their lives.

Everyone is in a different place, different level of growth and evolution, and different mindset. The more you grow, your belief system will change, you’ll become more knowledgeable, and see yourself and the world quite differently. If you stay in the same place, you tend to get stuck and remain in the same place.

We’re all travelers in our mind. Our thoughts, emotions, and feelings take us different places every few hours of the day.

There are a million thoughts, millions of emotions, and millions of feelings. What you feel right now is not what you will feel in a few hours.

Pay attention and observe your thoughts, your emotions, your feelings, and reactions to events. Events do not define you. Your actions determine the outcome of events on whether you react or respond in a negative or positive way. The event happen. It was one day out of your life. It’s not your your fate. It’s not your destiny. It’s a temporary situation.

Your thought patterns, emotional patterns, and action patterns change by self-discipline yourself every day. In some cases, this may be hour by hour, day by day, month by month, or year by year depending on where you’re at in your journey of self-discovery.

Small goals and small steps work just fine. Set a goal for yourself and meet that goal daily. Practice, Practice, Practice. This is the only way you get good at something by getting in the rhythm on a regular basis and doing things repeatedly.

Break negative thought patterns and exchanging them for positive thought patterns. Break negative emotional patterns and exchange them for positive emotional patterns.

What are you focused on? What is the goal? Who is a distraction? What is a distraction? Why is it a distraction? Keep a journal and write your thoughts, emotions, and feelings out. Sift through the information. What is negative and what is positive?

Who did the thought come from? Who doesn’t it belong too? Separate your thoughts from other people’s thoughts. What resonates with you? Is it your truth or someone else’s truth? There are usually things that don’t resonate with us and if the Millennial is battling with the thought it may be something that just doesn’t jive with their authentic true self. Throw it out. If it doesn’t feel right, it’s probably not right for you.

Allow other individuals believe, what they believe. They will find the answers when they’re ready to find them.

Never worry what other individuals are doing, but what can you do today to improve your life.

Self-discipline is focusing on where you’re going in life and what you need to know to succeed. Other individuals may be driving in the wrong direction. Focus on where you want to be in life. Make the necessary changes to make it happen.


to be in life.
