Being Motivated

Motivation and enthusiasm manifest as desire and interest, and as a driving force that pushes to take action and pursue goals. Lack of motivation and enthusiasm denotes absence or deficiency in desire, interest and driving force. Lack of motivation and lack of enthusiasm are two of the main reasons for failure and of living a mediocre life. People lacking in motivation and enthusiasm are usually passive, blame everything and everyone for their circumstances, and often come up with many excuses why they shouldn't or cannot do this or that. On the other hand, a motivated person is energetic and positive, takes action to improve his or her life, and does not give up when there are problems.
Lack of motivation and enthusiasm can show up everywhere, at home, at work, in relationships, in pursuing goals and in everything else. This often brings indifference, unhappiness and dissatisfaction. When it comes to living a healthy and confident life, real goal achievement involves much more than good intentions. For example, it is not enough to know you want to eat differently or that you want to lose weight. Motivation can be defined as an impulse to channel energy and action toward a specific goal. This means, you have to know what you want and be passionate about it, and, you have to know how to set a goal. Goal setting is a powerful skill to learn because you give yourself a specific direction and you give your energy a precise focus.

Instead of constantly worrying and stressing set aside time each day to envision a new life. Imagine clearly, and with all your internal senses, what it will be like to live your goal. Relish the physical sensations of the anticipation of your exciting dream. 

Your goals need to move from the idea state into the physical state and the only way this can happen is when you take action. Action on a daily basis is necessary to make your dream come true. Motivation increases as you become actively dedicated to the process of making your dreams come true.

Helen Keller wrote, "Nothing can be done without hope and confidence." Every day, take a couple of minutes to list all your accomplishments for the day. Develop a tracking system for every effort and success, no matter how tiny. Each step toward your goal deserves recognition or some type of reward system.  Being motivated all about knows what you want and believing in your ability to achieve it.
