Are you driven? You know what you want, what you need, and you go out and do it?
Yes? Read on...from a driven person to another
Being a motivated person sometimes means that everyone feels that you can do it all. You can find yourself being your only source of motivation. Part of being successful is also taking the responsibility to take care of yourself, mind and body. Read on for affirmations and reflections that can give you small bursts of energy to keep you going.
1. Failure is instrumental to my success.
2. Even failure contains positive elements. I look for the positive in everything I do. When I make missteps and still accomplish what I set my mind to, the path to achieving my goals is enhanced.
3. I know that completing a simple task is less rewarding than overcoming a difficult challenge. Testing the limits of my abilities is essential to self-improvement.
4. I often wonder if I would truly know the joy success brings if I always succeeded.
5. Making a mistake often results in learning something new. I embrace my mistakes. Sometimes I learn more about the process of my task or my approach, and other times I discover something about myself.
6. Failing reinforces the positive character traits that I continuously seek to improve. Through failure, I identify my ability to be resilient. It enables me to practice being accountable.
7. I develop stronger bonds with others because I am perceived as both humble and trustworthy.
8. Today, I perceive my mistakes as part of my growth and development. I enjoy trial and error because it enables me to understand how and why some practices succeed while others have limited success. I use my mistakes as teaching tools for myself and those around me.
1. What is the biggest mistake I have made, and what did I learn from it?
2. Does success exist without failure?
3. How can my mistakes help others?
