One thing I’ve learned over the last few years is that no-one has power over you unless you allow them to take control of your life. It’s not an easy realization as it forces you to consider your role in your emotions, your actions and the changes you hope to make in your life. But in taking a step towards this kind of thinking, you can put your life back on track and claim it as 100% yours. It’s important to note that often it’s not just people who get the upper hand over us. Situations, circumstances, and even our own emotions can boycott positive thinking. take-personal-strength-back

With willpower, you can see your way through that first bit of resistance your body and mind gives you when you’re not motivated. That moment of sheer distaste for what you have to go through or set your mind to. What I’m really trying to say here is that the moments that leave you the most unmotivated actually offer you the most potential for personal growth and strength.

Taking your personal strengths back don’t give up and being motivated doesn’t always come naturally. Sometimes we have to find motivation in what you’re experiencing. That means looking for a goal, objective or reason for what you’re doing or trying to achieve. If you want to remain strong in order to make the best choices and direct your life the way it should be going, you’ll sometimes have to face moments in which you will not be inspired, or motivated. Remind yourself why you’d like to do it and don’t let anyone or anything deter you from reaching that goal.
