Motivation in your Personal Life
Everyone has their own life happening amongst others. The easiest thing that you can do is focus on yourself and sometimes, that’s fine. The more you learn about yourself, the easier it’ll become to allow others into your life.
One reason a person may avoid interaction is because they’re unsure and insecure about themselves and therefore afraid of embarrassing themselves when around others. Seeing confident people walk with hauteur, mutual understanding and accomplishments make those who don’t have that feel wary.
One way to truly understand who you are is by recollecting every emotion you feel, and what it sparks in your actions. What is your motive every day?
We’re motivated everyday by something. In the morning you get up, shower, eat, change and go for work. You may say it’s routine but the question is, what’s compelling you to do all of this? The answer is simple and clear. Motivation.
You’re motivated to smell nice and keep clean before being around others otherwise people will be able to smell your last meal on your breath.
You eat because you know you have to survive. It’s a must and so you motivate yourself to eat at least before going to work to get it out of the way.
You’re motivated to change because you don’t want to feel undermined wearing the same smelly clothes you sleep in at night around your peers.
Every day, all day we make subconscious choices because they have become habits. If someone were to ask you why you brush your teeth, what would you say? Because I have to, would be the first answer to pop up into your mind.
But ask yourself the same question again. Why do you brush your teeth every day? Is it because you know that teeth can be damaged, do you want to have a perfect smile or are you scared of having teeth that others don’t like? What motivates you personally to keep your teeth clean and for how many times a day?
When you motivate yourself, you move forward. There’s no going back once you’ve made a choice and motivation tries to make sure the step you took was the largest step you could take.
With your own individual personalities, you want to move to a final destination and then possibly further. As you make steps, you as a person develops further into a persona.
Someone may feel something you’ve never felt, do something you would never do and not understanding why is the most frustrating thing in the world. That’s why you want to become more, see, know and understand more. There’s no top to reach, but there’s always the next level.
What everyone wants is to see how high they go
What everyone wants is to see how high they go, and where they find a place they can proudly fit into. This is personal development. We want to change, we want to survive and we want to please. We’ll please those we know, those we don’t and most importantly, ourselves.
To become a better person, we have to understand what it means to be a person and that only happens when we stick out our necks. Venturing into the real system man has created shows you what the world has to offer. This is what makes us whole and full.
Why You Strive For More
There’s no exact reason for why one person wants to endure the hardships of moving forward. Everyone will work differently from another person, tactics to the top won’t be the same for others. Trickery and lies can get one person to achieving where they want to be. Being the kind, helping hand and supportive friend will earn another person a gravitated name.
Most people want recognition…
Most people want recognition. Realizing what you live for is a hard question to answer, and the truth is there is no affirmed answer that can be handed to you. The answer for this question lies in each individual’s own character. Whomever it comes from, so long as it comes to us we feel that there is something worth doing.
One person enjoys helping others over themselves, another wants to make a statement all will listen to. What you do to help others and what your statement is depends on you. The fact is you eventually want the result, the final reaction.
No one stops until they get what satisfies them. Satisfaction is the key to knowing your motivation paid off to make you who you are. As long as someone can still stand with us or ahead of us, we will keep moving forward.
Similar to a rolling stone, there is no other way to go besides forward.
