"Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly"
Love that quote. One thing people need to realize is that regardless of what journey you were on whether it be a weight-loss journey or another personal journey you need to have self-motivation. You can look to others for motivation to start but the progress and their journey will never motivate you to the point that you reach your goals if you are not self-motivated. Basically what I'm trying to say is that you have to have your mind made up and be completely ready physically and mentally to completely reach your goals.
Something will automatically just click mentally and you will just say "that's it. Im going to do this."
Not only do I try my hardest to motivate and inspire others but there are a lot of people doing the same tjings. Putting our stories and transformation out there WITH THE HOPE thst someone will look at it and say "you know what? If she can do it then so can I" BUT remember that "motivation is what gets you started...but habit and commitment is what keeps you going" find that passion and self motivation before you start or continue your journey or you will never make it.
As crazy and cliche as this might sound....knowing I motivate and inspire so many others is what keeps me motivated. I am a success story. I am an inspiration to so many people. Reaching my goals keeps people inspired to start or finish a journey. Find out what your self motivation is, and keep it in mind. Whenever you feel like quitting, just remember why you started.
