Motivation

This video by Dan Pink looks at motivation.  Let’s be honest sometimes we are not afraid of doing something we just can’t be bothered.  We decide that it’s too late or “I’ll do it tomorrow/next week/next month”  The problem with tomorrow is that it never comes. Luckily the other is true that yesterday will never come back.  Everyday is a chance to start again.  If you failed to do something yesterday you can’t go back and change it but you can make a difference today. SO DO IT!

There are loads of ways to get motivated out there… aren’t there? You can look at motivational videos and pictures and quotes. They work…right?  The trick with these still lies with you.  It is only when you turn the motivational messages into action that things get done.

Just think about a food you really hate, then think that someone asks you to eat it…you’d say no right?  What if they offered you £1 to do it or £10/£100/£1000 or even £1 million to do it?  How much would it cost to motivate you?  There are other motivators too, if they threatened something/someone you loved?

Motivation comes down to emotion. Normally you are scared of losing something or excited to gain something you want.  People go to work to earn money to spend on things they want or to keep what they have.  Think about it.

The key to motivation to do something about you life and succeed is … either think about what your life could be like or what hrrible things you will lose if you do it.
