Self-motivation is a key life skill and something that everybody interested in personal development should think carefully about.
Ability to do what needs to be done, without influence from other people or situations. People with self motivation can find a reason and strength to complete a task, even when challenging, without giving up or needing another to encourage them.
Self-motivation is far from being a simple topic; there are many books, webpages and articles that attempt to explain self-motivation and some top academics have dedicated their life’s work to trying to understand, model and develop motivation theory.
Motivation pushes us to achieve our goals, feel more fulfilled and improve overall quality of life. People who are self-motivated tend to be more organised, with good time management skills and have more self-esteem and confidence.
Understanding and developing your self-motivation can help you to take control of many other aspects of your life.
