Every person faces a challenge every day of his/her life. We know what we want to achieve and we may also know about the steps that we need to take to achieve it. For instance you may have your own dreams and may have a basic idea of how to go about achieving it. In order to begin that particular activity you need to have the motivation necessary to get started and get going. You may face many challenges along the way that will make you struggle. The sense of determination that you had when you were getting started may start to waver. You will even lose sight of that light at the end of the tunnel. Without a strong sense of motivation you will never be able to achieve your goal. Motivation not only helps you get started but also helps you overcome those obstacles that show up along the way.

Feeling unmotivated can have an adverse impact on your happiness. It will impact your relationships, the likelihood of you success and essentially your enjoyment of life. Here is a small test to know whether you have a low level of motivation. There are a few symptoms that can reveal whether you have a low motivation level. If you find it very difficult to get out of bed in the morning then you may have problems with your motivation. It is okay to feel lazy once on a while and to stay in bed longer on weekends. But if you do not have an incentive to get out of bed every day of the week then you might be in trouble. If you are working in the same place for a long period with no hikes or promotions, then you lack motivation. The moment you feel comfortable in a position and settle for mediocrity, you need to understand that your motivation level is very low. If you were motivated you would have made sure that you reached a position where you required yourself to be utilized to the maximum. If you give up easily to the challenges that you face in life then it means that your motivation level is low. If you were motivated you would have pushed through all the difficulties and challenges that you faced and attained your goal. Most importantly boredom is a sign of lack of motivation. The possibilities in life are virtually endless and there is no reason for a person to feel bored.

Motivation not only causes you to act, it will also ensure success. If you observe the experts in the many walks of life you will understand that they have put in many hours into perfecting their craft. It could be a doctor or a sports person or even a guitar player. You cannot get better without practice. No one has had it easy. Everyone has had to face challenges and it is possible to overcome those challenges only with motivation. If you had heard Carlos Santana’s first guitar lesson you would never have guessed that he would become one of the world’s foremost guitar player. He may have suffered from many obstacles like any other beginner. But he never gave up. He strived hard and the only factor that enabled that was his motivation. He was motivated from within and he kept working hard and became the best at what he did.
Motivation not only causes you to act, it will also ensure success.
If you are motivated from within you will be able to work towards your goal without any difficulty. We can see many people who want to become the best but they do not want to put in the effort. This gap between their efforts and their goals can be reduced with the help of proper motivation. When you want to make something happen and you put in the hard work to do so, there will be many occasions where it will start to seem like a tremendous amount of effort. You may even want to opt out of the process. But if you remain motivated you will be able to reach your goal. Being motivated means that you need to follow the three ‘D’s in life’, direction, decision and dedication. You need to consider your direction, decide on your direction and continue with dedication. If you are motivated throughout there is no reason why you should not attain your goal.
