Rediscovering self-motivation

About a week ago, I was cleaning my room and found these fortunes in a bag of my old stuff. I'm not sure why I held onto them a few years ago, but I'm glad I did. I feel that they'll be really helpful in my life right now.

I used to be an incredibly self-motivated person. I used to have huge dreams for myself and I used to tell myself that no one and nothing would ever stop me from reaching those dreams. Sometime during the past few years, however, I lost myself (or a part of myself, anyway). I lost that self-motivation and all that inspiration that I used to have in life. But now I'm determined to find it again. 
Over the past probably 7 years I've never really focused solely on myself, but instead more so on the people in my life. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I feel like I really lost a part of myself in doing so. But now, at almost 22, I feel like it's really time that I focus on me and my life. Attempting to get back on my feet, find my career and reach all the goals I've set for myself.
