I was recently listening to a four-minute clip by a motivational speaker who was speaking about the reason why people who have dreams and ambitions don’t always achieve them and it struck a chord with me mainly because for the longest time there are things I want to do and achieve but found myself delaying on as well as procrastinating until my urge to do them was desperate. To be honest, in my desperation I can sometimes make hasty decisions… anyway in his teaching I picked up on something I hadn’t seen before. I hadn’t seen this key connection or perhaps hadn’t acknowledged the particular effects this had on my growth pattern. The speaker made a comparison between the belief that I should get things done and the weight of value that I myself put on those things which I need to be doing. I have always known that prioritising is effective in eliminating the not so important things and people that can get you walking in circles about your goals where you should be walking a straight but purposeful line.
He said that people often found themselves believing in the goal that they had set and the plans that they had made and that they had even valued what they set in their hearts to do but the reason it wasn’t happening was because in one of the two areas of either “Belief or Value” they didn’t have the conviction required to remain committed to the value they placed on the goal or that perhaps they valued it but did not believe in it as much.
‘Beliefs are the convictions that we generally hold to be true, usually without actual proof or evidence. They are often, but not always connected to religion. …Beliefs are basically assumptions that we make about the world and our values stem from those beliefs. – Difference Between
Friends, it’s safe to say if you don’t believe in it you won’t do it and certainly, if you don’t value it then you are likely not to continue even though you would have started so well. Is there just one key to staying consistent until we achieve our goal? Or rather is it diligently finding, through the suggested principles the unique combinations of your Motivation. Seeing as we may not all be mobilised by the same thing we need to be interested in our own unique self-motivation code in order to open the door of our potential and walk straight into manifestation. None of it is easy.
1) Prioritise and ask yourself on a scale of 1-10, 1 being Hopeless and 10 being I’m manifesting and acting on my imagination, insight, dream, vision… Just how important is what I’m doing? Is it worth going around in Circles with the Masses or should I be looking for a straight line, a narrow road that does not have too many people and distractions.. It’s not popular but I will walk the road less traveled to get there.
2) Do I believe in this every day or on a part-time basis? You see because if you don’t believe in it on some days you will do it in half measures or do nothing at all. Every time your motivation is low your action is often slow or nonexistent. So this means you have got to fuel your motivations and environments should be charged with reminders of your Core Beliefs. You literally need to take over your atmosphere and saturate it with reasons to keep going. This will keep your belief game strong.

3) Value it store it deep within like water in a mountain but letting it flow out through specific, and intentional activities and also have accountability and counsel where possible to alert you when you are on the verge of violating your principle in the name of profit and your integrity in the name of compromise. Your values either make you distinct or extinct.
Never expect others to care more about your dreams or success more than you do.
All said with your future in mind, don’t stop keep it moving.
