How many times have you wake up in the morning motivated and inspired for the day to come? Sadly, for most of us this doesn´t happen too often and this is one reason why we don´t give our all at school, home or work but the reason of our lack of motivation may be that we don´t like what we do, and this cycle will continue over and over in our life if we don´t stop it.
If we´re not motivated to do something we won´t do it or we won´t give our total attention and the best of us and there for we´ll never succeed so some of us need daily motivation internal or external to get up and keep going through the day.
If we want to live a successful life one that we really love and enjoy then motivation is key and it starts by loving what we do so we need to find our purpose. If we don´t love or at least like what we do every day it will be harder to do what we need to do, this is the reason why it´s so hard to get up every morning and go to work or to school.
When we´re motivated we take action and work towards our goal, we have a lot more energy, our performance and productivity increases we are more efficient managing our time and prioritizing activities, we handle challenges and setbacks in a more positive way finding solutions, it makes us happier.
I need to make clear a point before we continue, inspiration comes from outside and motivation comes from inside. We can get inspired by watching our favorite athlete, musician or it can be someone close to us who inspire us to take action. Motivation comes from within by finding our purpose and having a strong reason why we need to follow that purpose.
Without motivation we can fall in a cycle of procrastination, even when we can get inspired watching our biggest influencers or heroes that may be our favorite rock band or team of any sport if we´re not motivated we won´t take action.
When we´re not satisfied with some area of our life we need to make changes and to make those changes we need to make different choices, when we´re motivated it´s easier to make those choices and we handle any challenge with a more positive outlook which keeps us on the right track. If we´re not motivated we end up giving up, success in anything is hard we need insane focus and massive action and motivation is key for this.
The key to success is getting things done it doesn´t matter if we feel like it and the most successful people create habits and rituals so that they make sure they do what they need to do even if they don´t feel like. At the beginning when we´re creating habits and rituals it takes time and effort but with time we will do them automatically, when we get to this point inspiration and motivation are not that necessary. Inspiration is needed to take that first step, once we take that first step we just need to keep going and keep that momentum, when we accomplish our first activity or our first goal then we get motivated by those results so our focus and energy increases.
Nowadays we can find so many inspirational and motivational audios, videos, books but if we just listen to them or read and we don´t get up and take action they´re not useful, it´s not about watching or listening to those videos over and over and hoping that what we want is going to happen, it´s about getting up and taking that first step and then keep going, our progress will give us the motivation we need and when we combine that with our strong why that´s when we do everything we need to get what we want.
