Keys to Developing Sustained Motivation

[ 0 ] July 22, 2011 |

I’ve never met or studied anyone whom
I would consider to be successful, who did
not have strong faith. To have sustained
motivation, it’s necessary to have a
powerful faith—in yourself, in your product,
in your team, in your purpose—and in
something greater than yourself.
Robert Schuller wrote, “Hell would be
God showing me all that I could have
accomplished if I only had more faith.”
I think that developing this faith is best
done with quiet introspection, by listening,
and by being open to a higher power and
presence—what Napoleon Hill called
“Infinite Intelligence.”
When I’m in tune with this Infinite
Wisdom, my life works. When I’m not, it
doesn’t. When I’m “in the flow,” things
seem to come to me with ease. “Coincidences”
happen that don’t seem to occur
when I’m operating separately.
My favorite quote is from Henry David
Thoreau: “If one advances confidently in
the direction of his dreams, and endeavors
to live the life which he has imagined, he
will meet with a success unexpected in
common hours.”
This next part is the one not so often
quoted and yet perhaps the most powerful:
“He will put some things behind, will pass an
invisible boundary; new, universal, and more
liberal laws will begin to establish themselves
around and within him; or old laws will be
expanded and interpreted in his favor in a
more liberal sense, and he will live with a
license of a higher order
of beings.”
