Oh, motivation. It is probably one of the most used words when setting goals to yourself and then starting to work to them. When we struggle, we use the word as we are lacking out of it and don’t remember how we had it in the first place. When we fail, we said we didn’t find it at all, when we needed it the most.
Unfortunately, there is no magic way to get more motivation or put it to the drawer and take it out when we needed it the most. Tho, there are some ways how to motivate yourself back to the track when we are up to slip.
You know that feeling how we all have been fired up about some exciting new idea or opportunity, and you feel the rush of getting into it, as it’s new and makes you a buzz! But after a few days (or weeks, or months, or hours) you get bored or start losing the interest. The goal doesn’t seem that exciting anymore, the process isn’t as fun anymore, and you start thinking maybe this is not worth it the time anyway.
And then you hear about other people chasing big dreams, you sit back and see them lose interest and quit working, because, 9 times out of 10, they will — just like you did. But then you hear about that 1 out of 10 person who not only continues to work, but makes it to the big time. And then you start to wonder that is it just some people’s privilege or how do some people are making it and others don’t.
Motivation is an important life skill. The reason it's important is that every person on this earth is unique and has a purpose. To steward your purpose well, you have to be motivated to work towards your goals which helps your dreams become a reality. So there is no dream too big to reach it or you don’t need to be ‘talented’ to get where you want to be.
In fact, some people say that t there is no such thing as ‘talent’ at all. Or if talent does exist (but it’s more something what we are good at, but most likely mastered because of interest and no lack of motivation- our ‘talent’ is something that we have shown interest at, without maybe recognising, as we were kids, for example), its effects are so slight as to be pretty much negligible.
You know- hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. Or that it’s 99% of hard work and 1% talent. There is none, or very few stories, where people have made it something just because out of ‘talent’ itself. We just have different skills and we become what we are interested in.
You don’t need to have the motivation to start succeeding, but you do need to start succeeding, to grow your motivation, because nothing grows it more than seeing yourself becoming successful. Getting those deals, losing those kilos, seeing those muscles growing. When we start seeing the results of our time and work, we get more motivated. So seems like it is a circle what we create to ourselves.
