Motivation is a tricky concept. It comes and goes with us throughout the day, and some days it is not present at all. Some of us are easily motivated, while others find it hard to set about the task at hand (especially if it’s a Monday). What is it that truly motivates us? The answer is different for everyone, but the endgame is the same. We are all looking for a reason, a higher incentive, to complete a task.
This may be why it’s so hard to motivate yourself to finish a task you just don’t want to do. Why am I doing this? We often ask ourselves. When the rewards are not easily recognizable, it can be easy to stumble along the way to achieving them. In the bigger picture of life, it can be a serious misstep to lose motivation and stop pursing a goal. Hopefully these quotes on motivation will help you to take steps to continue your pursuit, no matter how small the steps may be.
“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.”
“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”
“I’ll always use the negativity as more motivation to work even harder and become even stronger.”
“If people take anything from my music, it should be motivation to know that anything is possible as long as you keep working at it and don’t back down.”
“Once something is a passion, the motivation is there.”
“People need motivation to do anything. I don’t think human beings learn anything without desperation.”
“Motivation is everything. You can do the work of two people, but you can’t be two people. Instead, you have to inspire the next guy down the line and get him to inspire his people.”
