Motivation: It’s right inside you!


Motivation is the power that activates the engine of success, and moves you to act and do things. Things which you really really wish to do. You need some helping material with this, such as Passion, Dedication, Ambition and Enthusiasm. The goal you set, it is the next most significant requirement to complete the recipe for great motivation. Always start your efforts with a vision and with full determination and Enthusiasm.

Vision is art of seeing what is invisible to others. Vision is just like a road and train track, If you do not know where to go and where is the end then possibly you will loose your way and all your struggle. If you do not have a proper vision then your struggle will always be used by others. A visionary person will not be afraid of difficulties because he has a target to achieve, he better knows about the way and the end. He will change his typical mind set and always think out of the box. It motivates you and gives you strength.  Action without vision is only a waste of time and your efforts. A good eyesight is not that which can see things clearly but which has a Vision.

Knowledge is the key to your desired destination. If you have knowledge of what you want to do, then your journey to the destination will be more easy and meaningful. If you are not aware of the merits and de merits of your work or efforts, then you will be stuck at many points in your life. Probably, your whole previous struggle and efforts can go in vain. Like, If a Soldier is not aware of his weapons and ammunition, So he can make blunders with them. Before execution always study all the relevant information about your goal and plan the work required for that.

No matter how many goals you save, People will remember only the one that you missed. Do not look back while you move forward. Do not wait for irrelevant things and people.  Just keep your focus on your goal. Success comes with hard work. Here I am sharing a quote written somewhere on one of Japan’s bus stop that “Only Buses will stop here not your time so keep walking to your goal”.

Moreover, Time is also one of the most significant element in our success. Like we all have hear that “Time is Money” and “Time is not wasted, we are”. When we have targeted a goal and we start working on it without analyzing the time management, it will create problems in the end. So always calculate the time regarding your work.

“If you want to know the value of one year, just ask a student who failed a course. If you want to know the value of one month, ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby. If you want to know the value of one hour, ask the lovers waiting to meet. If you want to know the value of one minute, ask the person who just missed the bus .If you want to know the value of one second, ask the person who just escaped death in a car accident. And if you want to know the value of one-hundredth of a second, ask the athlete who won a silver medal in the Olympics.” Someone said that.

No one is busy in this world, it’s all about priorities”. When we talk about time how can we ignore the “priorities”. When you keep focused on your goal ,always make priority a list first. This will help you a lot and it will never divert you from your prime target. If you did not set your priorities then there is a massive chance that you will loose something  very very important.

In the end, remember one thing that “Last levels of stairs are always difficult” .So never be hopeless and quit. Keep in mind that “A man can be destroyed not defeated”. Brightness comes after the darkness, happiness comes after hard work. ‘Because without the dark we would never see the stars’. Never think about the shortcuts, they would be always temporary. Don’t waste your efforts for them because life does not always give you a second chance.
