Motivation – Even the Doubters Use It

Times are bleak. I agree. More people are out of jobs. A few are struggling. Many can only manage to get by. A handful is growing richer every day. We live in the same country. Some of us are from the same area. But the results of our lives are quite different. While other complains; others are laughing all the way to banks. While others are falling into spiraling debt; others have their bank accounts filled to the brink. It is almost like shooting several arrows at the same time; they all go in different direction. They all have a special kind of force that is unique to them.What drives someone to work for two days straight without a single complaint? Others can barely manage 2 hours. What makes someone keep going from one achievement to another without ever seeming like they are about to stop? Others are content with having a ‘simple’ life. What drives us? What motivates us? Motivation is as unique as our individual personalities. Just like the arrows flying towards the same target but all headed in different directions; the forces behind our individual will power vary. They lead us to different directions. Ask anyone what motivation is, and they will give you as many answers as the people you ask the question.Ask a mother what motivates her. She will tell you she wants a better life for children. Ask a father what motivates him. He will tell he wants a better life for his family. He dedicates his life and efforts to his family. Ask the politician what drives him. He’ll probably give you a long story about what he wants to do for his people. A lover will get his motivation from the love he feels towards his beloved. The common trait in all these people is that there are all motivated to do something. They all want to achieve something. Their motivation comes from different things.We all get our motivation from different things. Motivation is unique to each and every one of us. Even people in the worst of conditions are motivated to try to change their lives. Look at the people living in the worst of conditions. Listen to them speaking. They are all hoping for better things. Even they are motivated to do certain things in their lives. People living in war-torn countries, the smiling faces dirt poor children in Africa, the homeless man in the corner of our street who comes there to panhandle every day of the year. All these people are driven by motivation. They need motivation to do what they do.Everyone needs motivation. Those who deny that they do not need motivation are motivated by their denial. We all do what we do for a reason. We have different reasons that motivate us. But motivation is a universal human trait. Without it, life is not worth living. Without it we are suicidal. You can do a lot with motivation but you can do nothing without it. We need motivation every day.
