What is Motivation?
Internal and external factors that stimulate desire and energy in people to be continually interested and committed to a job, role or subject, or to make an effort to attain a goal. Motivation results from the interaction of both conscious and unconscious factors such as the (1) intensity of desire or need, (2) incentive or reward value of the goal, and (3) expectations of the individual and of his or her peers. These factors are the reasons one has for behaving a certain way.-Business dictionary
Being successful is very important for everybody. It is the intrinsic need of human beings to gain recognition, dignity and success. However, in order to be successful, one needs to be highly motivated. This is so because motivation gives one the inertia and the power to propel themselves towards success. However, motivation is important for success due to other reasons as well. Here are some of the reasons:
1. Serves as the basic start up:
Have you ever been forced to do some work that you don’t like? How have you reacted to that work? Not that positively for sure! Now compare that work to some work that you like to perform, do you realize the difference in your attitude when you compare both of these tasks? Which one was accomplished quickly with a better work quality? Of course, the task you liked performing was performed way better. This is what motivation is. It serves as a start up so that you can get ahead with the work. The most difficult aspect of any task is to get it started, and once things get started, there is no looking back. Therefore, motivation is a key factor in making you get started on your way to success.
2. Motivation makes you keep moving:
When on the path of success, you are not always rewarded with success. One has to fall down many times before getting up and moving ahead. Obstacles, after all, are an integral part to make you stronger. It makes you worthy of your success. So, you have to be mentally prepared to face the tough work, the challenges and the problems in order to move ahead. So, you need to keep yourself motivated in order to keep pushing and going ahead.
3. Do something extra:
What is it that the successful do that we don’t? We have always wondered about this and got no answer. Its what they do “extra”that makes them successful. Even if you have started up, moved one and faced challenges, you still need to push it beyond what your normal capacity is. Only then would you yield the fruit of success! Doing the necessary would get the job done anyway, so how about doing that extra bit, so that the task itself would boast about who has done it! Think about it!
4. Everything is boring without motivation:
Why do you take books to read or listen to music when going on a long journey? It is to make you feel fresh throughout the journey. Same is the case with motivation. The road to success is long, boring and tedious, but if you have motivation as your companion, then you need not worry about anything. Difficult times can be conveniently endured by motivation as being motivated ensures that you not only do it the right way, but also enjoy yourself as you go ahead.
So always feel motivated, keep your hopes high and look towards a brighter future.
