Why is motivation important?

I’ll tell you why motivation is important. Because it’s fuel. It’s the fuel that tells you to get up off your couch, get out there and do something. It’s the fuel that tells you to put down the remote control, grab your stuff and head off to the gym, head out running, head out and do what you really want to do.

You keep thinking about it, so what’s stopping you ? Laziness ? Are you lazy ? Or is there a restriction ? Have you made up a restriction ?… Or are you just lazy.

Whatever it may be, you need motivation.

You need to watch an inspiring film, a documentary, a 3 minute clip on YouTube.

Whatever it is, do it to get the motivation you need to really get out there and DO IT.

Cement what it is you want to achieve in your mind and never stop thinking about it, become obsessed with it.

You want to be great at something ? You better become obsessed. You want to excel in a certain field ?

You better be willing to lose sleep, be tired all the time, sacrifice parties, sacrifice family outings. Lock yourself in a room with you and your goal. This is a fight, a fight of your will to see how bad you really want it.

If you have no motivation you will roll over, quit, give up on your hopes and dreams no matter how big or small they are.

But if you’re motivated ? You’ll push on, you’ll have drive and purpose and you WILL NOT let anyone stand in your way until you achieve that. You lock yourself in that room and you will be your doubter worst nightmare.

It’s a fight till the end, but if you never give up – You Will Succeed…

We all need a little motivation sometimes.
