Do you know someone or have ever met a someone who just doesn’t stop? They’re constantly going and doing something. A day where you would sit back, relax, and enjoy your day off, that person is organizing their closet or cleaning each corner of their house. There’s nothing wrong with being neurotic, I mean motivated, but where does it come from?

To be motivated means to be induced or moved into action or thought by either the push of a motive or the pull of an incentive. A motive is an internal disposition that pushes an individual toward some desired end, which is the incentive. I guess I internally motivate myself to continue to do certain things. Why do I go to school? Why do I strive for high grades? Going to school means graduating with a degree, my degree means getting a good job, a good job means making good money, and good money means I can have the nice things in life. Motivation is my reason for staying in school and my reason for staying in school is motivation. They both go hand in hand. Without motivation we would be worthless, or at least I would. Why even wake up in the morning, live life for that matter. We all have motivation whether we know it or not, it's just how far we push ourselves and the energy we put into the things we want that we can see it.

  1. I agree motivation is required for many of the things we do. Including something as simple as getting out of bed. Take the example of why severly depressed people have a hard time getting anything done.
