Motivation – The Ultimate Drive

Motivation is the underlying foundation of your ambition. It is what propels you to start working towards your goal. As such, it’s absolutely imperative for you to keep the motivation candle rekindling everytime you feel like it’s dying out. Because without it, you’ll have no push and inspiration to move forward and make your dreams come true. 

Every ambition starts with a kick of sudden motivation to make things happen. At some point in our lives; we contemplate and try to find a purpose; a purpose that’ll keep us moving ahead in life. Motivation, simply defined, is the ability to initiate and persist at a task. When we start with a goal and define it with clarity and work towards achieving it; we are invariably instilling a feeling of a strong drive in ourselves – that is motivation.

Once we successfully reach our goal, the mere feeling of achievement is so liberating and exuberating that we develop more self-confidence and determination to move onto the next goal and purpose. While it’s easier said than done, it’s quite a struggle and challenge to keep the drive throughout the journey as we are bound to face many obstacles and adversities along the way that may invariably diminish our motivation and at times. Unfortunately, this can lead an individual to completely give up on their dream. When that happens, it’s best to approach a personal life coach who will help reset your mindset and help you look past the setbacks and focus more on the positives. 

Challenges and setbacks are a part and parcel of life and should never be taken as the sole reason to just simply give up hope. Infact, we need to see such challenges as teaching moments. Only through facing these struggles can we learn from our mistakes and develop our persistent personality. Not only that, we also learn our strengths and capabilities when we are put in front of such challenges. Having said that, obstacles are actually quite essential in building ourselves overall. Without them, we will always be stuck in a rut and never progress. 

Obstacles are the cost of greatness. – Robin Sharma 
The real challenge here is to keep the motivation alive. It’s only human to feel defeated and let down; but takes real courage to dust yourself off and get back on the track again. If finding the inspiration to keep the drive running is difficult for you; then it’s best advised to get in touch with a personal life coach who will mentor and constantly support you no matter what obstacles are thrown at you during your journey to achieving your goal.
