Hi, it’s Nicola here, and today I want to talk to you about motivation. It’s a subject very much on my mind because there are two younger members of the family who are struggling to find their path in life. In order to be able to do that, they have to be motivated to sort of get up and try things.
There are six main reasons that people get motivated
- Money and rewards
- Desire to be the best, a lot of sports people have this.
- Desire to help others.
- Wanting power and fame
- The need for recognition
- Passion, a burning passion inside. Artists sometimes feel this, or sports people again. Or musicians, so people who love something so much they can’t help but do it.
But the problem is that none of these things alone are what’s going to get you up in the morning and get you taking action on changing your life. Sometimes it’s a combination of two or three of these.
Often we need money to live, so that’s one motivation, because if we don’t get up and get off our asses, get a job, or build a business, or whatever, then we won’t earn any money.
Sometimes it’s a need to be the best, you know, the competitive spirit comes through. And sometimes people just love to help others but want to earn money at the same time as doing it.
So if you can get a handle on your two or three main reasons that get you motivated, then that’ll help you, because you’ll be able to find a job or a career that taps into those sources of motivation.
