When you want to strive for greatness you must first desire to become stronger. Whether you’re going for a personal record or simply want to be more successful in life, the desire to become stronger is a necessary stepping stone. But the path to become stronger is more than simply wishing it to happen. You yourself must understand that there is more to greatness than simply thinking about it. To become stronger you must act and not simply rely on wishful thinking.
5 Ways To Motivate Yourself To Become Stronger
1. Find your reason
One of the first steps in your path to become stronger is to simply find a reason to become stronger in the first place. Do you want to become stronger for your family? Do you know someone who needs you to become stronger for them? Is it for your health or career? Do you want to show someone you’re not a weakling?
You have to find out what would fuel your passion to become stronger and grab on to it as hard as you could. There wil be times where you’ll feel lost and confused and when that happens I want you to remember the reason why you started in the first place.
2. Work on your weak points
There’s a saying that goes like this:
You Are Only As Strong As Your Weakest Link
And it’s true. To become stronger you must make sure to cover your weaknesses. If you know you’re not good in something then do what it takes to be great at it. Don’t do it halfway; commit to it and even if you fail at least you tried.
3. Do not fear criticism
When you want to become stronger you must know what is it you should improve at and sometimes it’s better to ask for help. Ask your family, friends, or even your own boss to tell you what you should do to become a stronger person. Ask them if they see anything you should work on be it your attitude or work ethic.
4. Do it while you’re afraid
Often times people tell themselves a lot of excuses why they should skip on something that would vastly improve themselves. And the most common excuse of all is they’re afraid to do it. Do not wait until your fear resolves on its own because that never happens. Facing your fears is definitely difficult but it’s not impossible. You have to realize that the only person stopping you from overcoming your fear is yourself. Only when will you realize your infinite potential.
5. Remove negative people in your life
The world is hard to live in so make sure the people you live with aren’t making it any harder. Your family is a given and you can’t change that but what you can change are your friends. You become who you surround yourself with and if you surround yourself with negative people then you’ll end up negative too. Find strength in people who are stronger than you and for sure you will also become stronger than you are now.
Strive for greatness no matter what
These are just 5 of the many ways to become stronger but these should help you put your mind into becoming a better and stronger version of yourself. When you strive for greatness your failures will stop being shortcomings and become part of the journey towards success. If you’re still not motivated by any of this then I only have one last thing to tell you: You only have so long to live in this world at least make it worth remembering.
