You’ll forgive the brevity of this article however, I will say that this may be one of the simplest questions I’ve asked although the answer is far more complex. Recently, I’ve been struggling with this question myself, as my motivation tends to either dip or spike, depending on what I have to look forward to at the end of the week. I understand that this isn’t the most responsible or fruitful means of staying motivated but, I can say that it’s done me pretty good up until this point. However, as I get older I find that my motivations, as well as my work ethic, has shifted and I am currently seeking newer strategies to help me stay focused on my goals.While their kids and the desire to reach socioeconomic success motives some people, selfish agendas motivate others. Some people just want to do better than those around them, and other people want to use their success as a sort of revenge or payback against someone who may have disrespected them in a past encounter. So, what’s your motivation? What drives you to get out of bed day by day and live your life in the best way that you can? What pushes you to work hard at your job; is it the professional advancement or are you just enthralled by the opportunity to make more money? What is it that drives you to chase your dreams while ignoring all people who’ve ever told you “no you can’t” or that your “dream isn’t a career?”
