Encouragement from others is great! But if one rely on that, he/she is going to face some challenge. Some of my clients are lookinf for encouragement outside. This get them tired. More importantly is we can encourage ourselves without relying on the external.

Isn’t it nice when you get some encouragement, and people tell you that you’re doing a great job and on the right track? It helps to keep you motivated. And that’s why I post this blog. To give you some encouragement to stay on the path of personal growth.
But what happens when no one is offering you any encouragement?
That’s when you have to suck it up and encourage yourself! Sometimes you’re going to get it from external sources. But sometimes you have to manufacture it yourself.
Remember that you’re amazing. Remember that you are capable of epic things. Remember that you are just beginning to tap into your incredible potential…
Then just get going again!
And also keep in mind the law of giving and receiving! I KNOW if I encourage someone, something good is going to happen to me. Thank you for this post and for believing in people Randy!
Thanks for the encouragement reminder, Randy! Reminds me of a quote "Become independent of the good opinions of others"

Hello Randy :) Great points. It's wonderful to be motivated by others. It's an incredible step to be self motivated.

When the courage wears off I wittingly seeking help from the outside. And more often I find out how I can do it myself. And not only keep my inner fire, but also make it bigger and stronger. Just keep doing it.
Being in an unencouraging environment is almost as challenging as being in a toxic one. You're right, Randy --- whatever else happens, there's nothing stopping me from encouraging myself. A great reminder! Thanks!!
' Your greatest gift to others is your joy and appreciation'--- I surely feel great when appreciated. I would prefer having joyful people around me. So do others I guess.!
