Increase in gratitude = Increase in confidence = Increase in motivation
One of the primary motivation killers is having a lack of confidence. Focussing on what you want rather than being grateful for what you already have creates illusions of why you aren't getting what you want and ultimately lose confidence in who you are.
Try putting your focus on gratitude. Being grateful for what you have, your successes, your strengths, things that make you happy. Being grateful will help boost confidence and will then motivate you to build on your successes.
Ask yourself, what are you grateful for today?
