5 Tips For Managing Your Worst Enemy
How many times have you heard the saying, ‘you are your worst enemy'?

Purposeful Step #3: Hold on to that something that matters to you.

There is nothing more meaningful in life than that something that we dearly hold on to. Some people call it their passion, others call it their cause. What do you call yours?

Cause, passion, or whatever it is that propels your inner drive to accomplish something is a very powerful source of motivation. It never runs dry. It flows so long as you hold on to that thing you care about. Sometimes, it is what makes people do the impossible in the face of difficulties. And it is that thing that gives them the courage to face and get through the biggest difficulties life throws at them.

Purposeful Step #4:  Dream big.

Big dreams inspire. It makes people work harder, with even more passion. What would happen to people if they have nothing to shoot for? That’s right… Nothing would happen. If there are no Olympic medals and several hundred Olympians to compete against, the champions will never exist. If Mount Everest is not the highest mountain, there will be no mountaineers and hikers who struggle everyday to reach the peak.  If you don’t dream big, you would stay forever in that nook of the world where everything is mediocre, where sense of achievement is an abstract concept, and where success is all but inexistent.

Purposeful Step #5: Compete with yourself.

Competing with others is good, but oftentimes it is sure-fire way to become unmotivated because you will start to compare yourself with others each and every time. Run your own, personal race.
