Part 3: Motivation
is it Important?
Motivation is literally the desire to do things. It's the difference between waking up before dawn to pound the pavement and lazing around the house all day. It's the crucial element in setting and attaining goals—and research shows you can influence your own levels of motivation and self-control. So figure out what you want, power through the pain period, and start being who you want to be.
Motivation can be many different things. To some people, money is motivation, or health, or their family, or business. No matter what your motivation is or what your goals are, remember to keep your motivation high and your eyes on the prize.
Motivation is the spark
– Motivation is the spark that sets the fire. It gets things started. Without motivation, anything you choose to do will take more effort and be less successful, if it gets started at all. Just like having a match, motivation makes starting things so much easier. You have a desire to start, so you start with the right attitude to be successful.
“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” – Brian Littrell
– Like a fire, motivation keeps you alive in the cold. Life is hard. It gets complicated, it gets expensive, and there are always problems. Motivation can help you to keep going despite the problems. If you keep your motivation high and your eyes on the goal, no problem will seem insurmountable.
1. Start simple. Keep motivators around your work area – things that give you that initial spark to get going.
2. Keep good company. Make more regular encounters with positive and motivated people. This could be as simple as texting with peers or a quick discussion with a friend who likes sharing ideas.
3. Keep learning. Read and try to take in everything you can. The more you learn, the more confident you become in starting projects.
4. Track your progress. Keep a tally or a progress bar for ongoing projects. When you see something growing you will always want to nurture it.
5. Help others. Share your ideas and help friends get motivated. Seeing others do well will motivate you to do the same. Write about your success and get feedback from readers.
the most important thing, that is worth repeating,
is to just get started.
