The word motivation is one of the most used words i believe.It is “a reason or reasons for acting or behaving in a particular way.”This word certainly cuts across all races, ages and even differences.
A motive is an impulse that causes a person to act. Motivation is an internal process that makes a person move toward a goal.
Motive + action = Motivation
So two things are involved here: a reason , then action!
Motivation is a word we use a lot but do we really understand what it means to be motivated?
It means, YOU NEED A REASON TO TAKE ACTION!
Read that again.
So i believe that means no matter how inspired one is, until you take action you were never really motivated. This is due to the fact that motivation can only be inferred by noting a person’s behavior.
Anything or anyone can be a motivation. It all depends on the reason you are searching because at the end of the day only you can take the action it requires. This is why your point of view in any situation is really important.
When i was about 4/5 years old i remember how my dad would take me everywhere and introduce me like i’m an adult so i’ll say hi, my name is ..nice to meet you., whomever i was stretching my hands to would go.. Wow, that is interesting. The next thing i’ll notice is, they treat me as an adult because of how my father had made me approach them. This eventually inspired most of the kids around me to greet or speak to people in a certain manner and before i knew it i became an adult before i was even 7. My actions became inspiring to make my father’s friends want me around even though i had nothing to say..
So sometimes, the reason to take action may not necessarily be from where or whom you expect it to come from and that requires focus to take action. This boils down to…*how bad do you want it*? I say this a lot but i’m sure you would agree with me.
Till the next read.
