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?


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!

“I wake up to live another day

Although many didn’t get to see it

So no matter what comes my way

I will NEVER be defeated

Success is on my agenda

Somehow I know I will win

I give my all on this day

‘Cause once it’s over I’ll NEVER see it again”


Let’s make it count Fam!!!!!

Giving your dreams a chance….

Everyone dreams.  Deep down it’s there.  Growing up there is always something that kid’s dream of doing.  Usually these dreams are astronomical.  Being some type of entertainer, professional athlete, doctor, or lawyer all seem like great and very realistic options for you people growing up.  Then life happens.

See, children don’t know any limitations.  Dreams seem realistic for them because they have not been conditioned to think that they can’t do something.  Anything is impossible to them.  You ever heard the term “childlike faith”?  Meaning that a child does not doubt at all so why doubt?  As parents it’s a good idea to build upon this way of thinking in our children by agreeing with them that they can do anything that they put their mind to.  Often the opposite occurs and many parents claiming that they don’t want to get their kids’ hopes up.  They want to be “real” with their kids by lowering their expectations.  For many, they are disappointed and unhappy about their own life being a disappointment so they subconsciously are threatened by their kids’ potential.  Terrible I know.

We are trained to settle, mainly based off of examples that we see from others.  We see others fulfilling their dreams and in the back of our mind we think “what if”.  This leads to feeling of insecurity and inferiority.

Why live your life thinking what if?

Here’s the thing.  We only get one life to live.  If we live a mediocre life and never pursue our dreams we would always think “what if”.  On the other hand if we give our dreams a chance what do we really have to lose?  People think they can’t afford to give the time and energy to their dreams.  I say you can’t afford not to.  People say they don’t want to struggle yet most of us struggle anyway! LOL I would rather struggle following my passion that to struggle doing something that I hate.  If things don’t work out you can always go back to doing what you’re doing now.  It’s time to stop being afraid and go for the life that you’ve always dreamed of.

Develop a plan. 

Start in your spare time.  Do some soul searching and first decide what it is you want out of life.  What does it take to get there?  Think baby steps.

Don’t do anything drastic like quit your job.  Do what you have to do but begin to slowly work on your dreams.

Stay Consistent.  There is so much power in consistency.  If you’re really passionate about something, then you will look forward to doing it every day.

So what are you going to do?

Live your dreams.  What if you don’t accomplish everything?  If you follow your plan you will get much further and be more satisfied than if you did nothing… Think about it! 2012 is right around the corner!

FAM! Welcome to BrianOnrea.com.  I’m Brian Onrea.

I’m purposely writing this first entry  to put out on a Monday.  People dread Mondays.  This is so prevalent that many people often can’t even enjoy a Sunday evening because they are sad that they have to go to “work” the next day.  This is a cycle that happens over and over again.  Week after week, month after month, and year after year.  Next thing you know, you’re dead and gone.

Props and congrats to those of us who love what we do and enjoy going to work every day.  For those of us that don’t enjoy what you do I encourage you to take time out this week and do some soul searching.  My philosophy is that life is way too short and we only get one to live so we ought to try to enjoy it as much as possible.

Our jobs and professions take up almost a third of our daily lives.  Let’s think about it.  With 8 hours of work and 8 hours of sleep, that leaves 8 hours of free time each day. Take out 3-5 hours to run errands, eat, take care of kids, etc. and that only leaves 3-5 hours of free time every day and many of us don’t even get that.  Imagine the time for those of us that work way more than 8 hours per day (not to mention transportation to and from work.  We deprive ourselves of sleep to get things done or we miss out on important things like family, etc.  This is sad especially when you do something that you know you don’t really don’t want do but are just doing it to get by.  Robert Kiyosaki Calls this the “rat race” in his book “Rich Dad Poor Dad”.  I can’t speak for you but I feel like there has to be a different way to live my life you know?

I’m working on a few writings about how to go about living your dreams.  I obviously haven’t mastered this subject yet but I’m confident that I’m well on my way.  In the meantime I want to encourage those that I’m lucky to be in contact with to keep their heads up.  If you’re reading this then I’m talking to YOU!

So as I stated earlier take some time this week to think about what you would really like to do with your life and what it would take to get there.  IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO LIVE THE LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE!!!

More on this later.

Enjoy your week Fam!
