How To Become Self-Driven

February 04, 2022 3 min read

Nobody is going to come along and give you a kick in the ass to go achieve the things you say you want...

You have to.

Nobody is going to hold you accountable for your performance, and demand more of you...

You have to.

Your problem isn't a lack of motivation...

Your problem is a lack of discipline.

You have to be self-driven and disciplined enough to put in the effort every single day, regardless of how you feel.

The motivation won't always be there...

The energy won't always be there...

The conditions aren't always going to be ideal...

...and nobody is going to hold your hand, period.

When you become self-driven...

No goal or dream is out of your reach.

What Does It Mean To Be Self-Driven

Self-driven people don’t need anybody to push or pull them through the flames…

They do it themselves.

If you can be honest and accountable with yourself…

If you can take action without being told what to do…

...and if you can do the things you say you’re going to do WITHOUT COMPROMISE…

You’re self-driven.

If you pay attention, all self-driven people have a core set of commonalities that you should replicate if you want to be self-driven.

Here are 5 qualities that all self-driven people have...

1. They Have A Purpose

Self-driven people are all influenced by a purpose that is greater than themselves.

It could be family...

It could be making the world a better place...

It could be leaving behind a legacy...

But, without a purpose, there is no reason to take action, because there isn’t anything to work toward.

You also can’t hold yourself accountable for your actions if your actions aren't focused on producing a result.

That's why all self-driven people create their purpose, and keep it at the center of their focus.

2. They Operate With Urgency

This is one of the biggest differences between people who win in life and people who lose…

Winners are urgent with every task, big or small.

Losers will wait to be urgent until things start going wrong, and by then ... it's already too late.

Self-driven people understand that having selective urgency is the biggest killer of dreams and potential…

Instead, they take action immediately…

They look to solve the problem immediately…

They don’t procrastinate on the things they need to do…

They do them...

...and win big because of it.

3. They Are Always Looking To Improve

You are a constant work in progress.

I’m a constant work in progress.

We’re all a constant work in progress...

...and the minute you start to think otherwise is the minute you’ll start to lose.

Self-driven people humble themselves and embrace the process.

They know that regardless of how much they learn and develop their skill set…

They will always have a lot more to learn and grow...

No matter how long they've spent on their craft.

4. They Are Always Challenging Themselves

Self-driven people don’t wait for a challenge…

They look for them.

Self-driven people understand that they have to put themselves in difficult situations if they ever want to improve.

If they don't ... life will, and they won't be prepared for it.

This is how self-driven people avoid becoming complacent.

5. They Have Mental Toughness

Discipline and mental toughness go hand in hand.

Self-driven people develop mental toughness by choosing the difficult situations every time they can.

This keeps their mental state sharp, which in turn helps them stay disciplined and focused on what they need to accomplish.

How Can You Become Self-Driven?

Becoming self-driven is all about taking action instead of sitting on your hands.

Get involved in the game...

Don't take a seat on the bench.

Stick to the promises you make to yourself.
