Motivation: The desire and action put forth towards eliciting an expected reward.
Many of us have dreams of succeeding, and motivation is that innate feeling fueling our desires to fulfill them. However, having all the motivation in the world isn’t going to make any of these wishes a reality. We know that if we want to actualize our aspirations, it’s going to take patience and a deep level of commitment.
It is human nature to want the most lavish things, be successful, or live a much better life than we’re currently leading. Whatever the desires, the force behind this need for improvement can diminish just as swiftly as it came. If we lose grasp of motivation, the result is failure. So how can we hold on to this powerful urge? Answer—dig deep.
Regardless of how small or large the ambitions, every goal and every dream needs an assessment. Here are some critical questions to answer: Why do you want these things? Are they realistic and attainable? Do you have the proper tools, or are you ill-equipped? And the most important question, do you want it bad enough?
Those that have succeeded in life commonly possess an undeniable will to achieve. They lived it, they ate it, they breathed it, and they…get the point yet? Ultimately, their motivations were constantly fueled by their belief in themselves. While many of us just dream, they materialized theirs with effort and commitment.
Whether if you want to lose weight, buy a nice car or house, or just become a better person, there’s no denying that motivation alone will get you there. If you had failed in your aspirations before, then the obvious approach would be a different one. The moment a task feels monotonous or cumbersome, is the moment that motivation slips away. Your environment is going to constantly change, as should your approaches.
Next thing, always give yourself a pat on the back! As much as motivation may fuel you, motivation itself needs fuel. To keep that fire burning, it’s critical to keep rewarding yourself and to never be content. Just because progress has been showing up at your doorstep, it doesn’t mean that success is well within reach. There’s still the bigger picture ahead!
Anyone can be motivated to do just about anything. The problem is that many of us crumble at the first sign of adversity. All it takes is a single seed of discouragement to lose sight of what we want to accomplish, in other words, setbacks. But you must learn to realize that setbacks will only serve as its appropriately termed—they should only set……you……back, and NEVER set you off. Stay motivated!
