Motivation

12 Sep

There are limitless things we can accomplish in our lives.  We can do anything we really want to do and there isn’t anything keeping us from fulfilling our dreams.  Our lives belong to us and we can design them any way we like.  If we are sufficiently motivated we can move forward and achieve anything.  Motivation is a powerful force.  It can help us overcome obstacles in our way, and keep us on the road when we get tired of the journey.  But motivation is just the first step in any change.  On its own it can’t do anything.  Being motivated doesn’t make change happen.  It only gives us the impetus we need to begin and motivation alone will change nothing.  It’s the spark that can start the fire but fire requires work, planning and fuel to continue.  All the motivation in the world will mean nothing if we don’t actually do the things we need to accomplish the goal.  Lots of people talk about being successful, opening businesses, writing books, and all the rest and they may be very motivated to succeed.  But without action, motivation will get us nowhere.  It’s just the first step.  We have to put work behind it to get where we want to go.

We may hear others tell us we only need to believe and we can accomplish anything.  Although having faith we can succeed is important and necessary in every endeavor, it isn’t enough.  We can believe we can climb Mount Everest all day long, and truly be convinced we can do it, but without doing all the training required to accomplish it we will get nowhere.  Faith can move mountains but only if we do everything in our power to make it happen.  There really isn’t anything we can’t accomplish if we are motivated enough to do whatever is required to make it reality.  The catch is to be willing to do whatever is required.  Faith and motivation are just the beginning and can open the door to all our dreams.  If we want to walk through those doors we have to put action into the plan.

There is a whole industry of motivational training.  There are endless seminars, countless books, many professional trainers and a sea of courses we can take to get motivated.  If we are seeking change in our lives they may help us begin the journey to make the change a reality.  But before we do anything we must decide what we really want.  If we aren’t sure we want to make the change, or it looks too daunting, all the motivation in the world won’t help us achieve it.  Once we decide what we really want we must begin doing what is needed to make it happen.  There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish if we are motivated enough to do what is required to make it a reality.  The world belongs to us and we can make our lives any way we want them.  We can be motivated, and then be diligent in using that motivation to accomplish everything needed to succeed.

Today if you’re motivated to make a change, use that energy to plan your way forward.  Decide how to make your dreams reality and begin the journey.  There isn’t anything you can’t do.  You know what you want.  Plan ahead and work hard and everything you dream can be yours.
