[Motivation: a little definition]
Motivation is the desire to do things. It can be mowing the lawn to reading a book. We all have tendencies to procrastinate or not have the motivation to do something. It takes a toll on our mental and physical health. But what is important is to overcome these barriers and reach our full potential in order to succeed. When we are motivated, we work better; our performance shows that as we enjoy something, a given task, and excel at it. I can say so for myself; when I am motivated, I am eager to show what I can do and I end up spending more time and effort at something I do. For example, I ‘ve noticed that I have less motivation in the morning than at night. As dawn enters, I feel that I have more energy to do tasks. I think understanding your rhythm so closely and utilizing the best moments of your day to enhance your performance on any given task is imperative.
I think if I am interested in a subject matter than I tend to easily motivate myself. However, on the contrary, if I cannot relate to a subject than I tend to doze off and cannot associate with the task at hand. More times than not I have to force myself to do work but as you start, it gets easier.
Nothing is really hard. I think key is to changing your attitude. If we try to find pleasure in work then we can easily find it. Yet, if we grudge, nudge, and complain, we only find disappointment. Look at the quote. When we want to make things happen, we can. Just find your inner voice and silence the inner critic.
