The Golden Rules of Self Motivation

I was taught at a very young age to live by the Golden Rule. I think it is the most important rule on the face of this earth, and in Heaven.

When you have a goal, and stick to it, the most important person you are helping, is yourself.

Others may not always respond, but live it anyway. I think that once we have that on our side, we can learn to adapt to new plans, and goals.

Once you have your goals in mind, put it to action. Action is the most important part of a plan. We must motivate ourselves in order to achieve anything.

Sometimes a little encouragement from others doesn't hurt. Stop punishing yourself for life that didn't go your way. Always try to pick up the pieces, and go on.

I know, sometimes that's very hard. You will need to take the risks, and stay with them, if you are looking to succeed.

Set yourself a time limit on each task. You usually know how much time certain things will take you, and you need to set a time frame for them. Setting time limits will help you not dawdle during each one.


You must have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by; but some of them are golden only because we let them slip by.

~ James Matthew Barrie ~

You are a life Saver!!

I recently discovered this site and I can tell you that my life has not been the same. I now come here EVERYDAY and spend at least 1 hour.

I used to spend that time browsing online fashion and beauty magazine which just means that I spend more. Now I have replaced that habit with coming here.

In future I will think about contributing articles as well. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!! and God bless"
