Belief in yourself is the beginning of self motivation and achieving your dreams. Without a solid belief in your own potential and abilities, you are doomed to failure and mediocrity.


 “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?” – Marianne Williamson

I believe that quote sums it all up. Many people are simply afraid to think of themselves as anything but average. The truth is – most people are average. The truth is also that most people don’t use their average ability. Most people live below their average ability.

That means that even if you just utilized your average ability you could probably achieve great things. It doesn’t take much to excel in a below average world. 

Self Motivation Fact # 2 – YOU HAVE UNLIMITED POTENTIAL.
