Tips To Keep You Going: Motivation Vs Inspiration
In order to do our best work consistently and to achieve the goals and success we want to achieve, we have to be able to push through the challenges and difficulties that life presents to us. Sometimes, this can wear us down to where we are not as eager to do the things we need to do in order to achieve the goals and success we want to achieve. We need to keep our motivation high in order to more easily achieve the goals we want to achieve, and, sometimes, inspiration can help us to gain the motivation that we need to succeed. Learn more about how motivation and inspiration can help you to achieve success below.
Motivation is the drive for us to succeed. It is what causes us to do the things that we do. For instance, if you are motivated to have a clean, healthy environment for yourself, your family, and for future generations, you will be driven to do everything possible to protect and preserve the environment. This means you will want to recycle everything possible and ensure you are not dumping any waste into the waterways when you are camping or burning any toxic materials when you are outside, etc. However, it can be hard to stay motivated if you hear companies are continuing to pollute the air in the name of higher profits and continue to bypass the laws intended to protect the environment; you may even think, “what does it matter if I do my part when other people aren’t?” This can cause you to cut back on your own conservation efforts.
Inspiration is when someone else does a noteworthy action that lifts your spirit and willpower to do greater things yourself. For instance, you could be inspired by a young child suffering from a terminal or debilitating disease or condition, yet never complains and tries to do his/her part to make the world a better place. It could be taking out his/her own garbage or going around the neighborhood collecting cans and other material that can be recycled. Seeing such a person who is dealing with greater challenges than you are, yet is continuing to do his/her part to help the environment can help to inspire you to raise your efforts to preserve the environment, even when it seems your efforts are going for naught.
As you can see, motivation is the drive for us to succeed, while inspiration is lifting our spirit and willpower up (and, in turn, our motivation) when someone else does a remarkable action. Oftentimes, that person is dealing with extraordinary challenges, often more than our own, yet doesn’t complain or make excuses, but continues to perform tasks to achieve a great goal, one that often resonates with us. Motivation and inspiration can help to empower us to achieve our best work consistently and to achieve our goals.
The Importance Of Motivation For Achieving Success
Having and keeping motivation is key for anyone to achieve success on a consistent basis. Motivation is similar to the fuel that powers our vehicles to get us where we know to go; just as with that fuel, motivation is what enables us to get where we want to go in terms of goals and success. Learn more about why motivation is so critical for achieving success below.
As mentioned above, motivation is similar to the fuel that powers our automobiles and other vehicles to get us where we want to go. Similarly, motivation is what keeps us going when we have a lot of tasks and challenges that stand in our way to achieving the goals we set. It can be very easy to let ourselves be slowed down and even stopped by challenges along the way if we allow them to. Motivation is the “fuel” that keeps us going; it’s what we need to push through those challenges and achieve the goals we want to achieve.
Just as an automobile will slow down and stop when it runs out of fuel, you will slow down and stop if your motivation gets low and runs out. If you become depressed and distraught over your situation, you will feel less motivated to do the tasks that are required to reach your goals. This is why it is vital to keep your motivation high to enable you to more easily complete your tasks and reach your goals.
While everyone’s motivation does drop from time to time depending on various circumstances, it’s important to get it back up as quickly as possible. Whether it’s through your own “pick-me-up” efforts, talking to loved ones about your situation, seeing a professional to overcome any challenges or issues you are facing, etc., you need to work to get your motivation back up as quickly as possible. Otherwise, your ability to do quality work consistently will be diminished, and it will be harder to complete the tasks you need to reach to achieve your goals. It will be similar to getting a car to its destination when it runs out of gas- you have to push it forward, and pushing a heavy car by yourself to its destination is a task that is virtually impossible.
As you can see, motivation is key to achieving your goals and having success in your life. Without motivation, you will have a much harder time achieving them, much like an automobile going to a destination without fuel. It’s important to keep your motivation level high at all times and get it back up if/when it does dip- motivation is the “fuel” you need to achieve your goals and have the best success possible in your life.
How Motivated People Win In Life And Business
Motivation is a key factor in how successful people have become successful. In many instances, it was a key decision they made at a key moment that helped to get them on their way to becoming the success they are today or were in the past. We will look more at how motivation is a powerful factor for successful people below.
When people have strong motivation toward a purpose or goal, they often are able to do great things that seem to be impossible in the eyes of other people. This can be attributed to some of the great inventions of the day, whether it was the light bulb, the telephone, or the airplane in the past to the Internet, smartphone, and smart Internet of Things (IoT) devices of recent times. The creators had a strong motivation to make the world a better place and make things easier for people.
In most cases, people who create great inventions, devices, etc. aren’t doing it for the money or for the fame they can receive. Sure, they get those things as a consequence of creating this great invention or device, but the motivation to create the invention or device came from an innate desire to see other people’s lives improve and to make the world a better, more efficient place. The smartphone has enabled people to stay in touch with each other more easily, while its abilities combined with the Internet’s has enabled people to be more informed about the world around them as it happens. When it comes to IoT devices, people can now adjust the amount of air conditioning or heating that occurs while they are away from their homes, enabling them to have a more comfortable living space while also saving on their utility bills.
In addition, people who are motivated to help others and succeed often are willing to take an action that is considered a “risk” by others who are not as motivated or driven to succeed. Whereas the latter would be scared off by making such a move, those who are driven to succeed will take the initiative and risk to perform that action, believing in their innate ability to turn it into something positive. It doesn’t always work out- sometimes, the idea or invention fails- but the fact they don’t limit themselves out of fear or doubt is why they keep taking calculated risks and why they eventually win in business and life in the end.
