What are the things that make you tick, rock your boat or just basically give your life true meaning? I don't think there is a person alive who doesn't have a passion or purpose within them and by using that same passion or purpose, can bring contentment and lasting success to their lives. Even though on the rare occasions, some of us don't think we have a passion or purpose to our lives, it is more than likely there and just needs unlocking, by asking ourselves some pertinent and revealing questions.
While your passion and purpose is not what I want to concentrate on too deeply today, being such a wide and diverse subject on which to cover, it is paramount in what motivates any person that wishes to succeed. Without motivation, we are stuck in mediocrity and that leads to basically nothing. With motivation, there is nothing that cannot be fulfilled and achieved. When you are motivated to do anything, especially something that you love, your physiology changes and you begin to see hope, when perhaps there was none before.
Motivation is the catalyst to completing and achieving anything. From the most mundane of tasks to a life changing goal. It is not always easy though, especially when you feel down trodden, sullen and sad. It might take someone else to give you that lift that alters your perspective to life and as long as you act upon it when given, it can begin to shape a brand new future for yourself and your family.
On the other hand, if it is not acted upon immediately or within a short space of time, it begins to subside and ultimately disappears. Therefore we cannot rely on others too much to motivate us and the reason for this is they cannot be with us 24/7. The solution to this is learning to self motivate ourselves. It is then within ourselves to control our own path to success. By also mixing with like minded people that amplify how motivation can lead to success is also an added benefit that cannot be underestimated.
Have you ever played a piece of music that moves you or read a book that inspires you? You can let these be a part of your life at any time at your own inclination and without needing anyone else to accomplish this or any emotion. You could say we are motivated by what we listen to and what we read. In the same way, by surrounding ourselves with similar motivational tools each and every day, there will be no room in our lives for mediocrity and disappointment.
