FIND YOUR MOTIVATION!!!

Finding Your Motivation

What is the idea behind motivation?  What does it mean to motivate?  The dictionary says motivate means to provide one with a motive.  We know that a motive is a reason.  What causes a person to act?  Simply put: what will it take to make us do the things that we know we need to do?

Fam please understand that fulfilling our dreams and goals is not an optional endeavor.  We must discover what’s been placed in our hearts and make it happen! No excuses are acceptable.  Remember if it can be done than you can do it!  The only question is; are we willing to put in the work and show the dedication to see your goals materialize.  This is where motivation comes in.  The average person doesn’t possess the will to go that extra mile.  You know the term, if it was easy everyone would do it?  Yeah that’s applicable here.  I believe everyone wants to fulfill their dreams but not everyone has that burning desire to do so.  Burning desire turns into action.  Every now and then however, laziness creeps in. When this happens we need motivation, a “motive”, a reason to do what we need to do.

We have to do some souls searching fam.  We must first take a stand and realize just who we are and what we want out of life.  Once we find out what we want we must spend time visualizing ourselves having the things and living the life that we desire.  THIS SHOULD MOTIVATE YOU.  The key is to connect with your desires however you need to on a daily basis so that you can stay motivated.  Some of us are visual and seeing images helps. For other listening to certain music helps.  Actually you can find motivation in anything.  Watching movies can motivate. Going to a sporting event can.  Going for a walk, seeing nature, etc.  You have to find what motivates you.  What is it that will cause you to act?

Suggestion

For me I like to study successful people.  There are lots of goals and dreams floating around in my head.  I like to find the people who have achieved the highest level of success in each field and soak in their stories.  For example if you want to be an attorney do some research, find the top lawyers and read everything you can about them.  Watch their trials etc.  If they can be successful so can YOU.

Once you find your motivation, you must get lots of it.  Every day.  Often you need it multiple times per day.  It’s sort of like taking your medicine.  Having this dose of motivation is crucial.

Now first you have to FIND it.  Get busy fam!

Poetry: Turn For The Worse

Turn For The Worse

There are some who are true

But most are false

Time reveals who’s who

But it comes with a cost

 

Emotions can grow stronger

It’s more crucial each day

I thought this would last longer

Now I’m left in disarray

 

But thats the risk you take

When you leave your heart with no protection

There was way too much at stake

To allow love from our very inception

 

Things get better though

It’s just another lesson learned

One thing I’ll forever know

Heartbreak will always have it’s turn
