Mental Game Tip 6: Motivation comes from within – not from without!

“The ones who want to win and achieve championships motivate themselves.” – Mike Ditka

Motivation is the toughest thing to teach.  Some say you either have it or you don’t.  I believe you can teach motivation, but it has to be taught at an early age.  In part it comes from being taught the importance of values and principles at an early age.  Motivation is one of the rewards that comes from growing up and doing “without.” If you are taught that success comes from hard work, having dreams, desire, and the perseverance to achieve you will know what it’s like to be motivated.  – John Ellsworth
