Self Motivate and Manage

One of the worst positions you can be in is one that requires someone else to motivate you, push you and supervise you to do your work and attain goals for the company. The position and mode of operation you want to adopt is for you to motivate yourself. You to push yourself. You to manage yourself. You to set your own targets and you to demand production and hustle from yourself to attain your goals.

Do not allow yourself to slack off. You can be and should be your own best motivator and manager. If you catch yourself getting distracted, re-focus your thoughts on your goals, motivation, wants and why you're doing what you're doing. Anything in life is attainable but it comes down to how bad you want it and what you're willing to do to get it.
Assess your day to see if you are effectively self managing and self motivating to hustle and nail specific targets and ensure they're attained for your own internal reasons or if you have to be managed and motivated by someone else and when you aren't, you aren't fully focused and applying yourself?

The path to real success comes when you have adopted a discipline to push yourself without being pushed by anyone else. Look at anyone that has attained huge success in life and you will see that something was driving them. Something kept them focused and clearly no one was cracking any whip to make them work and push them - they did all the pushing themselves. So push yourself, keep yourself motivated and demand production and high level of action from yourself and you'll see that you are actually the best manager and motivator you could have.
