Motivation For Achievement

What makes the difference between those people who are very inspired to achieve something and those who are not so determined? Those who do almost everything to excel and succeed by putting in a lot of effort and those who don’t work as hard and for whom it is not that important?

The difference lies in the motivation for achievement.

What is Motivation for Achievement?

It can be defined as

o Having a strong desire to accomplish something

o Striving for a standard of excellence

o Expending effort in order to excel

o Having an appetite to accomplish a difficult result

o Being driven to outperform others

According to research by David McClelland it has been found that people with a high motivation for achievement work harder, are more future oriented, more innovative, more persistent and they desire success much more than they fear failure. An interesting point is also that they attribute success to internal factors (like optimists do) as opposed to external factors (as do pessimists). In terms of choosing their challenge they have the ability to distinguish a suitable task as being challenging but not impossible. This means that they choose their task wisely and therefore experience the satisfaction of reaching their goals. People with a low motivation for achievement interestingly either choose tasks that are too challenging, in which they are more prone to fail, or tasks that are too easy, in which there is not enough stimulation.

Can you train Motivation for Achievement?

Experiments have shown that humans indeed can learn to become more achievement motivated. You can even learn and teach it to yourself.

As with any behavioral change it is a process over time. Firstly, practice choosing tasks or set goals that are at a suitable level: challenging and yet achievable. Secondly you put more focus on and celebrate your successes rather than being focused on and frustrated about your failures. Thirdly you need to practice being persistent.

Which one of the three steps mentioned here do you want to focus on and in which way is it achievable and still challenging for you?

Like the Japanese proverb says: ‘Fall down seven times, get up eight.’

Motivation Tips

Motivation tips play a very important role in helping people boost their level of motivation. They are tested methods that have proved relatively useful over a period of time. These tips have been designed on a step-by-step basis to gradually increase a person’s level of motivation. Various schools of thought have promoted different motivation tips based of a number of theories. These tips have greatly helped people achieve their goals and objectives.

People looking to motivate themselves or their team members should decide on their goals and get them down in writing. In order to get properly motivated people should know what their goals are. After getting their goals set, people should plan short-, medium-, and long-term goals. The goals chosen need to be practical and attainable. The goals set should not be so high that they prove to be out of reach. Goals should be written down and should be placed in a spot where they are clearly visible.

People should not let themselves or their team members’ feelings get in the way of achieving their motivation. It is generally seen that when people mix up their feeling with their goals their motivation levels tend to drop. It is also seen that procrastination kills motivation. However, procrastination can be overcome with a clear and structured schedule. Whether people are working on their own or in a team, they should not let themselves be overwhelmed by the number of things they have to do. They should manage and complete each task before moving on to the next one.

Rewards and incentives play an extremely important role in motivating people. A reward or a pat on the back for a job well done helps in boosting an individual’s or team’s level of motivation. Similarly, a person or team trying to achieve an aim or objective should enjoy the task or job to be completed. Lack of enjoyment or fun may make the achievement of the objective a long and arduous task.

Motivation tips and strategies can also be obtained online through a number of websites providing information on the same.

Trouble With Motivation?

One way I have found to keep my teams motivated is to take a step back from practice and let the athletes play a game. No matter what the age is, from tinies all the way up to senior age, they all love to play games once in a while at practice. The key is to let them play games that are age appropriate. I have found that the youngest age teams like to play games as simple as “Duck, Duck, Goose”, as for the older athletes, this is not the case. One of the most popular games that my teams have played is a game we call “Classes”. This game is where you split the team up into two different teams. You then explain the rules (you can really make up whatever you would like). As a coach, we would just give them a task to do and whoever completed it first would get a point. All of the athletes found this to be tons of fun and quite possibly their favorite game to play at practice, even though it is a simple concept. These are just a few ideas of games, nevertheless you can have your team play any game you or they want.

Another way I have found to keep a team motivated is to set goals that are to be met by a specific date. Something as simple as that will keep a team positive and allow them to have it set in their minds that they need to keep on working. At the gym I work at, we have the athletes all get in a circle and hold a piece of ribbon that connects them all as one. We then go down the line letting each athlete state their personal goal and their team goal. Once we get through everyone on the team each athlete cuts off a small piece of the ribbon and ties it to his or her shoe. That way they have a constant reminder of their goal and promise to the team.

Another great way to keep a team motivated is to get them out of the gym as a team. You can do something as simple as have a party at someone’s house. Many times my team would have pasta parties or pizza parties at someone’s house. We would each chip in for the costs and then bring in a dessert, drinks, snacks, appetizers, etc. This is always a fun way to get the team together outside of practice. It is very inexpensive and creates great memories. It also brings the team closer together because they are hanging out and having fun outside of practice.

An additional fun way to get the team out of the gym and motivated is to go to a team building activity together. Team building activities can be almost anything; a great one is obstacle courses. As a team, we went to an outdoor facility together (called Iron Oaks). There we did fun activities that kept us all thinking. Alongside of it keeping us thinking, it assured that we all worked together to accomplish a goal. The way that this keeps a team motivated is because it is keeping a team working together to accomplish a goal, just as a team needs to keep working together to push through competitions.

Another key tool to keep a team motivated is simple, communication. Keep communicating with your athletes. Talk to them about things that are going on in their lives, if they are having troubles outside of the sport, then chances are they will take the problems with them into the gym. This causes for distractions, and everyone in cheerleading knows it is really hard to push through practice when you have other things on your mind.

Be sure to give your team the right tools to stay motivated. Make sure they have the right equipment to succeed, whether it is the right type of shoe or clothing to the right type of mats or trampolines. This will help them train hard and correctly. Athletes will not be able to advance their skills if they do not have the correct tools to keep working and advancing.

The most important way to keep a team motivated is to lead by example. Be a good example to your team, whether you are a coach, athlete, parent, or a gym owner. Setting a good example will cause the team to look up to you and want to work just as hard as you are. If you are a hard worker and positive about things, then your team will look toward you for guidance and want to learn from you.

Weight Loss – Finding Your Trigger To Boost Your Motivation to Lose Weight

If you are like many people, you may find you struggle to maintain optimal motivation levels from time to time. You go about your program and sometimes, you are sufficiently motivated and ready to work as hard as possible. Other times, the opposite occurs. You cannot get yourself to do what you know you need to. What gives? When this takes place, it is essential to identify your triggers.

Let us look further at this concept so you can find out how to use it and have sky-high motivation at all times.

What Are Triggers? Triggers are essentially anything that is going to make you strive to work as hard as possible to see a result.

For instance, it is the reason why you are looking to lose weight. Why you are hitting the gym each day. Why you are saying no to pizza when it is offered.

Your triggers dictate your ability to stick with your program and generally speaking, the stronger the trigger, the easier time you will have to maintain your motivation to continue.

Finding these strong triggers is essential for your success.

Finding Your Triggers. How do you go about finding your triggers? First, you must dig deep…

  1. Now, at the surface level, you may think the primary reason you want to lose weight is to look better. Moreover, that is great, but it is at a surface level. Go further.
  2. Why do you want to look better? What will looking better get you? Whom do you want to look better for? What happens if you don’t look better?

Try answering these questions along with any others you may come up with that will help you better understand your triggers.

You may find you want to look better to regain the self-confidence you lost as a teen when you started putting on the weight and by doing so, you may feel like you will approach life and your job differently, and if you do, it may mean career advancement.

Now you have a definite trigger. When you think of that piece of cake, think of this instead. If you want to be successful and reach your goal, your trigger will help you to say no to the slice of cake.

Using This Wisely. How can you use this wisely? What you need to know here is this exercise is not designed to make you feel bad about yourself. Instead, it is intended to help uncover the reason why you are working so hard towards your goal.

If you have not taken the time to uncover your trigger or triggers, that is your first mistake and what will cost you down the line. Your motivation will fail, and you will be back to square one.

Take some time and find your trigger. It is one of the best steps you can take to help achieve maximum success.

Engagement Versus Motivation

Some experts advocate employee engagement, others are strong believers in motivational strategies. But one does not necessarily exclude the other. There can be circumstances where even an engaged employee can use some extra motivation. Having an overall engaged team should be the main goal of every leader. Engaged employees are a true asset for every organization, especially in difficult times. There is, however, quite some confusion about the difference between engagement and motivation.

Engagement

Engagement comes from ‘within’. It is having belief in the ’cause’. Engaged people do what they do because they believe it is the right thing to do and not necessarily because there is a reward waiting at the end. A prime example of engagement is volunteer work. There is no payment involved, it takes up a lot of time and it is very often ungrateful work. Yet most volunteers do it with passion and perseverance. Why? Because they believe in what they do. Engagement has everything to do with commitment.

Motivation

Here is where the confusion starts. When we talk about motivation, we distinguish two different kinds: intrinsic and extrinsic motivation.

Intrinsic motivation is in fact exactly the same as engagement. It comes from ‘within’ and it has to do with the joy or fulfillment a certain job or task gives the person, rather than the reward it will bring.

Extrinsic motivation is triggered by external factors. As soon as those factors don’t exist anymore, the motivation will be gone as well.

The opponents against motivation strategies are against extrinsic motivational measures like incentives and reward programs and they are absolutely right. Reward programs are counter productive; they usually have a negative return-on-investment in terms of money, employee satisfaction and retention.

What is there against Reward Programs?

Let me share my own experience with you. I started my career as a sales rep for a company that sold copiers, faxes and printers. As often the case, we got paid a commission on top of our – quite low – base salary. On top of that, the company had a few ‘reward programs’ running. A program for the most sold units in a given period, a program for the most ‘new business’ and a few more like these.

The worst one was the ‘Sales Person of the Month Award’. The one with the most sales in a particular month could hand in the keys to his company car and was allowed to drive the company’s Porsche Carrera the following month AND he got his own parking spot in front of the building.

What do these reward programs bring? Nothing, really. Guess who always won these rewards? Correct, the people who were always in the top already. Guess who didn’t even try to get one of these rewards? Correct again, the ones at the bottom. They knew up front that they would not stand a chance against the top performers. And guess who tried a few times but never got the ‘prize’ and became de-motivated? Right, the people in the middle.

So was it motivating? For sure it was, for the group who didn’t need to be motivated; the top performers. They might have sold a bit more but once you are at the top, the room for improvement becomes smaller and smaller. It didn’t do a thing for the bottom performers. They were ‘untouched’ by these programs. It did do a lot for the group in the middle though. That is the group where every sales manager can ‘score’. They have potential and a lot of room for improvement. And what did it do? Exactly the opposite of what the program was invented for. They knew that they contributed to the company and they saw that they would never get ‘rewarded’ for their contribution. How motivating is that?

I hear some people say already:”Then they should make it to the top! Then they will get the rewards as well!” I can score 110% of my target but if other people score 115%, does that make me ‘average’? No, it doesn’t. No matter how great your group of sales people is, there will always be a number one and a number last. And reward programs will always reward the numbers one, the people who need it the least.

Extrinsic motivators: short-term strategy

Incentives and reward programs ‘motivate’ only for as long as the program lasts or even shorter if the employee feels that he won’t ‘win’.

Suppose you have installed a reward for producing a certain number of your product and suppose that everybody is really trying hard. What happens after the deadline? Exactly. People will fall back to their normal production. To get the same results, you’ll have to install another reward program and so on.

Engagement: long-term strategy

Let’s look at that last example again. Suppose one of your suppliers has delivery problems and therefore your production comes to a halt for a certain period of time and nobody will meet the target for the reward. People that were motivated will not pick up the pace right after the supplier started delivering again, because there is no reward to work for anymore.

There is a group of people who will pick up the pace, despite of the fact that there will be no reward. They have an attitude of ‘let’s see what we can do to make up for the lost time’. They are in the ‘game’ for the ‘game’ and not for the ‘prize’. They are engaged.

Engaged employees have endurance. They will continue to bring the task to a good end, despite external challenges and circumstances. They support the goals, mission and values of the company and being part of the organization makes them feel proud. In general, the quality of their work is better. They want to be able to be proud of what they have done while motivated people are like horse with blinders, trying to get to the finish as fast as possible, no matter how.

Engagement goes deep. That also means that the management of an organization has to create an environment where engagement can thrive and flourish. In my next post I will share my thoughts on what you can and have to do to create an engaged team around you.

Let me conclude with a story I heard that describes engagement the best:

Former U.S. President John F. Kennedy came up with a very bold statement in September 1962: “We are going to the moon.” Not too long thereafter he paid NASA a visit. While he was there. he asked an employee:”What is your job?”. The man answered:”My job is to put a man on the moon.” He turned out to be the janitor.

That is ‘engagement’. No matter what you do, your work is as important as anybody’s as contribution to the mutual goal.

I wish you a lot of engagement.

Motivation by Listening

Listening skills are a very powerful motivation factor.

Hardly any people are actually good at listening, being more interested in what they are going to say next. When you think about how many people you have met who can remember your name or what you said, you’ll find it is very few indeed. That generally seems to be the norm so when you do meet people who you think are good listeners, your feelings towards these particular people are usually more positive.

By that I mean you likely would place more trust and confidence in them. So because most of us find it very hard to listen, we are surprised by somebody who does listen and we tend to endow them with greater capabilities than they may possess.

This is the secret of motivation by listening. If we can learn to listen well, the people we listen to will be motivated and inspired by our attention.

Most salespeople consider themselves to be good talkers instead of listeners. You hear people saying: “He is a born salesman, he’s got the gift of the gab”. Many people believe that the speaker holds the power and that the listener is meek or docile. Actually you will find that the good listener has much more power in any conversation. The listener is able to gather more information than the talker and armed with information can then produce the desired result.

When two people are conversing, the one who really dominates the conversation is the person who is asking questions and listening carefully to the answers. When we want to motivate somebody to give their best effort, or to follow our direction, we will do so more effectively by listening to their responses to the situation.

Therefore the real job of the salesman is to listen carefully to his customers and understand their needs and concerns. Although they might ask you a few questions first, most successful salespeople will agree with this.

So what steps should you follow to create motivation by listening?

1. Repeat or rephrase so you can clarify the information given

2. Give useful information in return.

3. Listen for the emotions. Selling especially is often based on emotional factors more that objective facts.

4. Look people in the eye and make some reassuring gestures or tones to encourage the speaker.

5. Be careful not to distract the speaker – give them your full attention while they are talking.

6. Show that the discussion is important to you too.

Listening is an essential skill for making and keeping relationships. When you are acknowledged as a good listener people confide in you and trust you; as a manager of people or as a salesperson this is your route to success.

Motivation Defined

Motivation is a call to action. Motivation inspires change, movement, and focus; it is what makes the world turn. The Art of Motivation is a must for Master Persuaders. How do you motivate in such a way that prompts people to take the actions you want them to take? How can you plant the seeds to encourage motivation? As a persuader, one of the keys to success is to motivate yourself and others. We have all had days when we did not feel like doing the things we knew we needed to do. It is useless to persuade and have others agree with your point of view if you can’t get them to take action.

Martin Luther King said, “If a man hasn’t discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.” In order to successfully motivate someone – or, to get him or her to internalize the motivation – you have to create a deep hunger or thirst. It has been said you can bring a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink. That’s true. But let it be known that you can give that horse salt and create such a thirst that the horse must have water. As a master motivator, you are giving salt to your prospects. You are striving to create such a thirst in other people that they can’t wait to act.

You will find people tend to get motivated for the short term, lose steam, and then fall back into the rut they were trying to pull themselves out of in the first place. As a persuader and motivator, you have to understand what pulls people from action to inaction. What causes us to lose excitement, vision, and energy? When you notice your prospects are losing their motivation, these are the reasons why:

  • The desire to gain
  • The desire to avoid loss
  • To make money
  • To avoid criticism
  • To save time
  • To avoid loss of possessions
  • To avoid effort
  • To avoid physical pain
  • To achieve comfort
  • To avoid loss of reputation
  • To have health
  • To avoid loss of money
  • To be popular
  • To avoid trouble
  • The desire to gain (cont,)
  • To experience pleasure
  • To be clean
  • To be praised
  • To be in style
  • To gratify curiosity
  • To satisfy an appetite
  • To have beautiful possessions
  • To be an individual
  • To emulate others
  • To take advantage of opportunities

You can’t change a habit unless you replace it with another one. The same is true for motivation. You can’t change how someone is motivated unless you replace the undesirable motivation with a desirable one. You have to understand whether your prospect’s motivation is a positive motivation or a destructive motivation.

Once inspiration is identified, build on that inspiration until you create an intense hunger. This means that you get your prospects to take responsibility for their own lives. Get them to set new goals or review their existing goals and their reasons for setting them. Another way to stoke the fires is to find somebody who shares that same passion.

Since Maslow introduced the concept of needs, countless motivational theories have been brought to light. Avid McClelland proposed that we learn three things that motivate us as we go through life: achievement, affiliation, and power. John C. Mowen used the three “R’s” of motivation: reward, recognition, and reinforcement. Bob Stone suggested that people respond either to “gain something they do not have or to avoid losing something they now possess.” He created this list of basic human wants to explain his theory. In his book The Hidden Persuaders, Vance Packard identifies eight hidden needs that motivate people into action:

1. Need for emotional security: We live in uncertain times. Terrorism lurks, the happenings on Wall Street are shaky, we are surrounded by illness and disease, etc. We need safety, comfort, and stability in our lives.

2. Need to feel self-worth: Much of today’s society is cold, competitive, and uncaring. We want to experience a place in the world where we know we’ve made a difference.

3. Need for ego-gratification: We want recognition and praise. We all want to feel important.

4. Need for creativity: We feel more satisfaction and fulfillment when we can work creatively through hobbies, sports, and other forms of recreation.

5. Need for love foci: Life is richer when we have someone to share our love with, for example friends, children, grandchildren, a spouse, or pets.

6. Need for control: We need to feel a sense that we have some control or power over our environment, our surroundings, or our conditions.

7. Need to belong: We want to feel that we are an integral part of the world and that we are important to people whom we love, respect, or admire.

8. Need for immortality: We fear dying or being forgotten. We buy life insurance because we want to leave something behind.

Motivation starts with vision. People need to believe they will succeed in what you are motivating them to do. No one likes to lose. No one wants to lose. No one wants to be associated with losers. So, instill in your listener or audience a vision of winning. Thinking we can win and seeing the win in our mind’s eye stirs our internal motivation. When we help others think of past victories or instill the vision of victory in them, we can motivate them to take action. Olympic coach Charles Garfield states that the highest performers are driven by a sense of mission.

Learning how to persuade and influence will make the difference between hoping for a better income and having a better income. Beware of the common mistakes presenters and persuaders commit that cause them to lose the deal.

Master Persuaders present a winning package. When people sense victory or accomplishment, they will make sacrifices and become energized. They will find a way to succeed and win. If they sense defeat, they’ll exert little personal effort, come up with lots of excuses, and exhibit lack of energy for the cause.

Motivation is true art. When you understand the Laws of Persuasion not only will you be able to motivate, but you will also have earned the right to motivate.

Conclusion

Persuasion is the missing puzzle piece that will crack the code to dramatically increase your income, improve your relationships, and help you get what you want, when you want, and win friends for life. Ask yourself how much money and income you have lost because of your inability to persuade and influence. Think about it. Sure you’ve seen some success, but think of the times you couldn’t get it done. Has there ever been a time when you did not get your point across? Were you unable to convince someone to do something? Have you reached your full potential? Are you able to motivate yourself and others to achieve more and accomplish their goals? What about your relationships? Imagine being able to overcome objections before they happen, know what your prospect is thinking and feeling, feel more confident in your ability to persuade. Professional success, personal happiness, leadership potential, and income depend on the ability to persuade, influence, and motivate others.

Motivation Management Is the Key of Change

During my career, I have learned that motivation is the most important factor of change.

I have seen people who have overcome their addictive behavior only with the high motivation. In addition, I have many people who continue their addictive behaviors despite the fact that they enjoy the various opportunities, such as professional consultants, hospitalizations, participation in meetings of famous recovery groups, and support by good families, friends, and community.

Their motivation is low for giving up their addiction, and their motivation for doing addictive behavior is high. Motivation determines whether one overcomes addictive behaviors or continues them. Therefore, motivation management is the key to change. This is because habit change requires not only an increase in motivation to quit addictive behavior, but a decrease in motivation to continue the addictive behavior.

I think the motivation management includes two basic principles:

1. Ability to raise and lower motivation.

2. Ability to increase motivation while changing.

Ability to raise and lower motivation Source of the motivation, is the need. When a need is activated, it creates a motivation for extinguishing itself.

Needs are activated by attention, too. The more people pay attention to stress and anxiety and how to get rid of them, and pay attention to the enjoyment drug use produces, the more they feel are motivated for using. In contrast, whenever people pay attention to the costs and risks of long-term addiction, the motivation of quitting drugs or addictive behaviors will increase.

“Selective attention” is a simple act and strong technique that it is used during the thousands years by religions and ideologies for motivating their followers. Today, SMART Recovery benefits from this method and uses the Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) for enhancing motivation to change.

The CBA has four categories of questions:

1. What do I enjoy about my addiction? What does it do for me (be specific)?

2. What do I hate about my addiction? What bad things does it do to me and to others (give specific examples)?

3. What do I think I will like about giving up my addiction?

4. What do I think I will not like about giving up my addiction?

Answering these questions develops awareness and increases the motivation for quitting. The more people do this exercise, the more they will tend to enhance motivation for quitting.

Ability To Increase Motivation While Changing

Overcoming addictive behavior is a process, not an event. Many people know how painful it can be to tread the path toward change. They want to change their addictive behavior immediately, with no discomfort and no urges, without changing their beliefs and values. Such people are like those who enjoy having reached a mountaintop, but hate mountain climbing; or like soccer players who get pleasure only from winning, not from playing.

They start with the high motivation, but they lose their motivation gradually and the most of them do not reach to their goal. Few people that reach to the end of the path. They go through the entire path with anger and complaints. In contrast, those who enjoy the way their motivation increase quickly. And reach the goal with joy and lightly. Rumi believes that loving the path not only increases the motivation for us, but also carries us to the goal. He has beautifully expressed this fact in the story of a thirsty person.

On the bank of the stream there was a high wall,
painful thirsty person was on the top of the wall.

His obstacle for reaching the water was the wall;
He was in distress for the water, like a fish.

Suddenly he threw a brick into the water:
the sound of the water came to his ear like spoken words.

The water was making a sound, that is to say, (it was crying), “Hey,
what is the advantage to you of this throwing a brick at me?”

The thirsty person said, “O water, I have two advantages:
I will never give up from this work.

The first advantage is (my) hearing the sound of the water,
which to thirsty people is music to their ears.

The other advantage is that, (with) every brick I tear off this (wall),
I come (nearer) to running water.

Anyone is more thirsty on the top of the wall,
He will tear off the bricks more quickly.

Anyone is more love with the sound of the water,
He will tear off the bigger brick from the barrier.

I think the main task of people who want to overcome addictive behavior is learning motivation management. Recovery groups, psychologists, physicians, and other people and organizations involved with addiction treatment would do well to establish an environment for helping clients/patients learn this skill.

What Is Motivation

Motivation is the characteristic that is required in order to achieve anything in life; without it you will give up at the first sign of adversity. It means to inspire, instigate and encourage a person to do their best. Motivation will compel a person to think “If I can’t, then I must” and will cause them to do whatever it takes to become successful. If you inspire motivation it can change your life. You will be inspired to get what you want regardless of what people tell you that you can not do. I have personally seen people apply the motivation factors in life to get from poverty to a life filled with abundance.

Do you think you possess the quality? Only you can answer this question. Take a honest look at yourself; do you find yourself pursuing your goals everyday? Are you doing something to work towards them regardless of what is going on in your life? If you are then you; then my friend you do possess this characteristic and you will reach all your goals. I wake up at 5:00 in the morning to get started on my goals. I am passionate about reaching all my goals. Do you find yourself doing this or are you making excuses of why you can not work on a goal?

It will give you the passion to begin exploring what it is you really want to do in life, and give you the courage to follow your dreams. If you do not like where you currently are and are living life everyday unhappy and frustrated; it probably is because you do not possess any motivation for what you are currently doing. It is up to you to find out what you would really like to be doing with your life. What kind of lifestyle do you want? What kind of career do you want? Do you actually know what it is that would make you happy and excited about getting up out of bed in the morning?

This is a strong quality for anyone to possess; and you can only possess it when you set a burning desire to be do have something in life. No one can give it to you. It can change a persons life in many ways. It can change the way you think, and when you become involved with personal development and become a much more positive individual motivation will get you out of your negative environment.

It is the fuel that inspires us to reach our goals and achieve what we truly desire. It also allows us to keep getting up and moving forward when we get knocked down. Getting motivated and staying motivated gives us the energy we require to reach our goals in the shortest amount of time possible. It is required to meet our goals and do anything purposeful in life. Without it you will not want to get out of bed, clean the house, walk the dogs or do anything at all. Being successful in life and motivation go hand in hand. When you learn how to achieve motivation for something you truly desire; nothing can stop you from having it. So think about it; what truly motivates you then take action towards it and watch it become your reality.
