MOTIVATION IS LIKE BRUSHING TOUR TEETH If you don’t brush in the morning your breath smells by evening.
I think we should start off with the dictionary definition of what,
- the general desire or willingness of someone to do something.
- the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way.
It is very important to stay motivated in life as this gets us to where we want to be, but there will always be moments in life wife when we feel a bit down so I have made a list of 9 things that will help you get back up when feeling a bit down;
1. Move the goalposts.
Set a large and specific goal. This will motivate you much more than small goals. A big goal has a big effect and can create a lot of motivation.
For the bible says:
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Hebrews 12:28 says
Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe,
and In the Qur’an, Allah says about being thankful,
And In the Quran Allah says,
“And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor]; but if you deny, indeed, My punishment is severe’.” (14:7)
Allah has given a promise that, if we are thankful to Him for His blessings, He will certainly give us more. Yet, if we were to be ungrateful, Allah does not say outright that He will give us a punishment; rather He leaves it open as if to remind us that, ‘look, My Punishment is severe – that is all you need to know so start becoming thankful for your own benefit.’
I am not overly religious but I have practiced being grateful every morning and trust me it really works. Gratefulness is a very crucial part of staying motivated. Knowing that you are doing the things you wish to do can push you forward more than any other variable.
- Take time to sit back, be grateful and admire what you’ve done. Seeing how far you’ve come gives you a sense of purpose.
- Don’t be embarrassed to take credit in what you’ve done. You know you’ve worked hard, and getting praise from other people can strengthen your resolve in pushing on.
In the end, happiness is one of the greatest motivations to achieve. Happiness fuels ones self-esteem and gives people hope for a better tomorrow. We are all victims of taking our work too seriously. Step back and enjoy the journey. Your motivation to achieve is ultimately based on earning a living that brings you tremendous joy and satisfaction. Smile, it helps a lot to smile even when your sad.smile at small children,smile at strangers, smile at your wife, your kids, your father at anyone who offers you any service smiling is the first step to happiness Smile all the way to heaven and when you God put on avery big smile.
