What Motivates You?

What is motivation?

According to the dictionary MOTIVATION means the following:

1. the act or an instance of motivating
2. desire to do; interest or drive
3. incentive or inducement

 

I truly believe that motivation comes from within the person.  If they want it, they will commit and go after it.

Why is commitment so important?

When you are committed in doing something, then you are driven to get it.  People can be lead towards something, that doesn’t mean they will act on it.  It could be the best thing for them, if they don’t see it, or want it, they won’t act on it.  Wanting it leads to being motivated to get it.

Questions to Get Motivated:

Do you really want it?

How badly do you want it?

Why do you want it?

What does it mean to you to get it?

Are you willing to make sacrifices to obtain it?

What are the potential obstacles?

How will you overcome them?

What will your life look like when you get it?

Are you motivated yet?  If not, what will get you motivated?  Write these questions and answers down.  Reflect on them daily.  Dream about them.  Stay positive and focused on what you want.  Your thoughts are the key to success and staying motivated.  Don’t give up when you face difficulties.  Come up with solutions to get around the obstacles and just keep going until you get it!
