Personal motivation

The motivation of christians is supposed to be exactly the opposite of what motivates the unbelievers. For one thing, our sense of motivation or inspiration comes from God, not from things of the world. We need to evaluate what motivates us in life and take full responsibility of our actions.

Our first act of maturity is to accept total responsibility for our actions and motivate ourselves. No one can do it for us. Although motivation gives us focus and direction, discouragement will be reflected in our lifestyle. There are many things we are doing in our lives and whatever we might be doing. We need to know what motivates us, that will give sense to our daily work.

For me , when I am studying and it gets very hard. I feel like quitting medical school and I remember what motivated me to be in medical school in the first place and I keep on going. It is never going to be easy, trust me, but as long as we have Jesus Christ on our side. Nothing will be impossible or irrelevant. 

Be yourself, but be the possible "You" that you can be. Be passionate about what you do or about your calling.  by Start by clearly defining your boundaries and stay focused on your vision. It is important to note that boundaries are not limitations,  but actually a means to tap your true potential. Spend time finding new ways to do things. It is easy to avoid doing things you do not enjoy or find difficult.

Develop a life of integrity. Why not be someone that you admire? I do not mean that you should start strutting around full of pride, but that you should develop Godly-esteem. Join people that can build you up, those who can identify with your vision.

Phil 4:6

6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Have an attitude of gratitude for what you have. you can change any situation by changing yourself. Be excited for the success of other people- God has not overlooked you.

"Let no one over come to you without leaving better or happier."- Mother Theresa.

Prayer starter: Dear Heavenly Father, remind me to take full responsibility of my actions. Give me courage and strength to keep on focusing on what you have called me to be and do. Remove anxiety in my life and give a peaceful existence in your grace. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.
