When you see something astonishing you can rest for sure that it was highly motivated by some sorta driving force.
We don't like ability we lack incentive.
What exactly is motivation? Motivation is said to be the driving force by which humans achieve their goals. To achieve these types of goals, you must be willing to work extra hard and punch any & all obstacles in the fucking face.
Without this motivation and drive, you're better off just submitting and settling for average. Imagine the loss of motivation, there wouldn't be many scientific & medical discoveries we surely wouldn’t have Iphones, drones, smart watches ect. Many of these achievements exist not because of some egg head nerd that always reminded the teacher to pick up the homework. But simply because they were the most driven. It's that simple, that's it.
Intrinsic Vs Extrinsic When it comes to motivation there's two types "intrinsic" & "extrinsic". Intrinsic motivation typically refers to the type of motivation that is driven by your personal interest or passion for the particular subject itself. Basically, this is when you aren't obligated to require any outside pressure to show interest.
Extrinsic motivation on the other hand comes from outside resources basically "hook ups". Incentives such as: money, discounts, gifts or some type of recognition. It could also come from blackmail or threats. So as you can see it goes without saying you can’t separate both rewards and motivation. Even from an intrinsic viewpoint, the reward of may be the personal satisfaction of completing a task to the best of your ability.
The Greatest Sacrifices Deserve The Greatest Rewards Bruce Lee threw thousands of punches and kicks daily, Kobe Bryant was the first to arrive to practice and the last to leave the court, Muhammad Ali wasn't the most ripped or in shape boxer however his drive to be successful could never been duplicated or penetrated. Michael Jackson.. well do I even need to go there? If you aren't pickin up what I'm putting down.. LISTEN UP what I'm saying is you're the sum of your repeated actions.
Real motivation comes from real goals, real passion and real desire. The first step in motivating yourself is to decide clearly on the reward you want to achieve. To take that a step further, learn to separate your wants & needs. Everyone has a want: losing weight, becoming rich, quitting their current job or being successful. All of these things are 200% achievable.
Everyone thinks of what they should be doing but nobody thinks of what if they didn't do it.
Reintroduce the word "must" into your vocabulary. Instead of wanting to lose weight tell yourself you must lose weight have no choice and your life literally depends on it. Then own up to it. Take action and reap the rewards of your hard work.
When you know clearly what you want and how much you NEED it to happen DO IT as you can now take the next step. You can think of ways to make your dream happen. So get motivated and start achieving your dreams now!
