Motivation can be defined a driving force that initiates and directs behaviour. It is derived internally and can drive a person to do or achieve something, such as our goals or our desires.
Motivation becomes strong when you have a vision, a clear mental image of what you want to achieve. When we create a compelling vision of our future, we are more willing and determined to make that a reality. What’s interesting about our brain, is that it doesn’t know the difference between what is true or not true, so the stronger and clearer the vision, the more our brain thinks its real, thus moves towards congruency and our motivation is increased. So motivation has the ability to excite you and push you forward, so that you take action, so that you’re able to make your vision a reality.
A Lack of Motivation
So I’m going to throw out the human card and we can all relate to the fact that there are times when we just aren’t motivated and there can be numerous reasons why.
So what is a lack of motivation! If motivation has the ability to move us towards what we desire, than a lack of it suggests there is an absence of desire, interest and a driving force.
A lack of motivation can result in passive behaviour, blame, a sense of failure and a list of excuses as to why you shouldn’t and cannot do this or that. I know I’ve been guilty of this in the past…its to dark, the weather isn’t right, I’m tired, I don’t have the time, what are people going to think…and the list goes on.
The challenge is that when we’re not achieving even our smallest goals due to a lack of motivation, we can often be hard on ourselves though we can easily become indifferent, unhappy and dissatisfied with life.
Let’s see if some of the Reasons for a lack of motivation resonate with you.
So the burning question is How to increase your motivation
Here are some great questions to ask yourself to get you started.
Is there an area in your life that you are already interested in that motivates you?
What are you focusing on when you think of that area?
What is the meaning that you’ve given it? Does it empower of disempower your motivation?
What has prevented you in the past from staying motivated?
What are the benefits of being motivated?
How is life different when you experience motivation and enthusiasm?
Ultimately getting motivated is up to you. Take one step at a time and never underestimate your ability to make things happen.
