Motivation is an important ingredient of success. It is the power that kindles the fire to do things and to act, and has much to do with ambition and desire. In fact, without ambition and desire there is no motivation. When motivation is strong, there is ambition, and when there is strong ambition there is motivation.
Often, people are motivated to act, learn a new subject or accomplish a goal, but this motivation is too often short lived, and fades away after a little while.
How do you feel after reading something that inspires you, or after watching a movie that awakens your ambition to succeed? You feel the desire to experience or accomplish what you have read or seen. You feel a sense of euphoria and happiness, but too often, these feelings go away on the same day or the next one.
Why does this happen?
- Because you don’t really want to achieve what you have read or seen.
- You are too busy and forget about it.
- It requires too much effort.
- You need to you make certain changes in your life.
- It takes time to accomplish goals.
If you think about it, you will come up with many more reasons why you lose your desire and motivation.
To keep the fire of motivation, you need to strengthen your desire, have faith in yourself, and be willing to work toward accomplishing your goals. You need to keep giving fuel to the fire of desire and ambition in order to keep your motivation alive.
You might think you might fail, and therefore, you don’t even want to try.
You might feel you lack enough ambition and don’t make any effort.
You might find it difficult to awaken motivation, and therefore, easily give up.
You cannot know if you succeed, unless you try.
Don’t be afraid of effort or failure. The road is often bumpy and you might fall or fail, but keep getting up with a smile on your face, and with the faith and belief that you can achieve your goal.
Never say ‘I can’t’, always say ‘I can’.
Always remember that motivation and ambition are the ingredients of success. You need a strong motivation and a strong ambition to make things happen.
