Motivation and Inspiration
Motivation and inspiration requires cultivation on a daily basis. Individuals who are actively engaged in self-improvement activities can sometimes become overwhelmed by the vast amount of information that has to be absorbed and processed.
This information overload coupled with constant setbacks and lack of progress can lead to frustration and feelings of hopelessness.
It is extremely difficult if not impossible for positive change to occur in our lives without proper motivation on an ongoing basis.
Motivation is the force, stimulus, or drive that propels people into action and causes them to engage in behaviors that will be rewarded by achieving a desired outcome and the accomplishment of their goals.
While it is certainly possible for one person to motivate another, the strongest motivational force often comes from an internal need or desire to succeed.
This is perhaps best illustrated by our basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter.
If we are hungry for example, we will actively seek out ways to get food, so our physiological needs are often driven by our survival instinct.
Without food we would die.
But what motivates us to seek out ways to improve our psychological needs?
The need for love, money and high self-esteem is important to us but is not necessary for our survival.
We can be unhappy, unpopular, and unloved but we can still survive as long as we have the basic necessities of food, clothing, and shelter.
Perhaps some of us choose to accept the fact that our psychological needs will not be met and therefore we give up and consider this to be a lost cause, but when we give up we lose all hope of ever becoming who we were truly meant to be.
If you are one who has lost hope and given up you need to first of all understand that motivation is an ongoing process so you must strive to keep the flame burning on a daily basis.
