How Do You Motivate Yourself And Others


Are You An Encourager Or Discourager?

I came across a quote recently that goes along the lines of,

“There are two ways of exerting strength, one is to push down, and one is to pull up”

This got me thinking, this is something that can impact us both internally and externally.

Click below to listen to this podcast episode…

Firstly, look at the internal, do you focus more on the things that you can’t do?

Do you criticize yourself, is your inner self-talk one that’s encouraging you, or belittling you?

Took a moment to have a think, become aware of what you’re doing and then look at how you can change it for the better.

Are you suppressing your potential? Are you focusing too much on the negatives, rather than giving yourself the encouragement and taking the time to focus on your strengths, your qualities, and the things that you can do, the things that you can change?

We can’t always change everything, but we can change how we react and respond to it.

By focusing on the things that we can do, this helps us to move forward in the right direction.

Now let’s look at this from the External perspective.

Are you somebody who likes to offer a hand to people?

Do you like to encourage or discourage people?

Do you like to bring the best out in people, or are you somebody who criticizes?

Are you somebody who looks at the negatives and all the reasons why you can’t do something?

Also think about the people you spend time with, do the people around you exert their strength on you in a way that belittles you, that pushes you down. Or do you surround yourself with people who are encouraging and inspiring you, the kind of people that bring out the best in you?

Have a look at your life, have a look at the way you think, the way you speak and communicate with yourself and others, have a look at the people you spend the time with and ask yourself;

“Are you pushing down on your personal best, on your success, on your achievement, on the life that you want, or are you pulling up and encouraging yourself from the inside out?”

Simply become aware of whichever it currently is, once you’ve done that, now look at how you can make some changes to bring the best out of you and the people around you.

It takes just as much time and energy, so decide which you would rather do and choose to do what will have the most positive impact for you and the people around you.

Remember what your mind believes you will achieve, so allow yourself to think differently, to believe yourself more, be kind and encouraging to yourself. Then take action so that you can achieve the life and the goals that you want.

Go on, make it happen!

Leave a comment or get in touch and let me know how you’re going to utilize this in your life moving forward and what a positive difference it makes for you!

All the best
