It can be a beautiful thing as long as we use it correctly and wisely. Besides trying to better me every day and wanting to make a difference in people’s lives. What drives me or motivates me is where I will be in one month, one year. Who knows maybe five years, whatever the time frame is. Sure it scares the crap out of me and freaks me out sometimes. With the HUGE goals I have and I set for myself, it does terrify me thinking about it. That’s why I’m Motivated so much.
If my goals don’t scare me or give me goosebumps thinking about accomplishing them or freak me out. Are they big enough? Are your goals big enough? If you aren’t having these same feelings and nerves. They are not big enough and you can reach higher and do better.
With how hard I’m working now trying to make a difference and have fun in life. Now make the most of the opportunities that I have right now at the moment. If I’m this excited and motivated, not to mention terrified as well. If those are my feelings right now, and I didn’t even publish my book yet or get my story completely out there yet. Imagine how excited and motivated I will be once I get my book published? Who knows what opportunities will open up.
I can’t wait to find my purpose and figure out what I’m destined for. Trying different things figuring out what the future holds for me. Again it terrifies me just as much as it motivates me. It’s a good fear to have. It makes us feel alive and that we have a purpose in life. I want to feel alive and feel like I can be used and help others. No more zombie status, or being average Joe just going through life looking to get by. I want to do the best I can with whatever opportunities are placed in front of me and pass the expectations that are expected of me. I don’t want to settle for just enough like I used to shoot for in my past.
Game Of Life
If you’re not motivated to get out of bed every morning and excited for what the day holds, then what are you doing? Sure, we all have our moments we want to sleep in more and want to relax and kick our feet up and unwind. Yes, it’s ok to do that every once in a while. But you need to stay focused and keep working hard on the tasks in front of you. I know there is more to life than money, success, and any material thing that might motivate you. I get that and I agree. There is more to life than those objects or status’s we are trying to reach.
Then again, if we only have one life and one opportunity to play this chess game that we call life. Shouldn’t we make the most of that game, and each move we take? I don’t know about you but I want to make the most of my moves on this chessboard. Will they always be the correct moves or make a big enough punch to knock your opponent out with one move. No, maybe it’s not one big move. What it takes is all of the little moves that you did in between that makes the difference.
They Have No Idea
All they see is you were just you, and now you are YOU. Your this big name in life and you can officially say you made it now. What they don’t see, is all of the little stuff you did every day behind the scenes. They think you just made it, with the click of the button and you’re successful now. It’s not that easy if it was then everyone would do it. The sad part with that, even if it was that easy. I STILL don’t think everyone would do it. How crazy is that? What does that tell you about that person or the direction the world is going?
Maybe this post motivated you and maybe this was the final step you needed to hear before you take that new opportunity or go after that dream of yours. If so that’s awesome, go for it. But if you don’t give 100% then your just wasting your time. If your going to do something and try and make that dream be turned into a career or be successful at it. Don’t just decide to do the bare minimum, you have to give everything you can and do the best you can. Give your blood, sweat, and tears into it.
The other day I was thinking about my book and the kind of impact I hope it has on people’s lives. I was imagining people but mostly kids coming up to me saying this was the first book they ever read or finished. They were sharing their story with me, and because I opened up they want to do this or that now. I was getting a little teary-eyed thinking about that, thinking about the influence and impact and what this book is really about.
It’s not about the money or potentially how wealthy I become after publishing it. I’m trying to be apart of something bigger and play a bigger role than just trying to fill my own pockets. That’s the kind of goal that should motivate you.
Thinking about something that extreme and that big, that’s what should be giving you goosebumps or scaring the crap out of you. Not thinking what type of car I’m gonna buy when I sell my first 10,000 books.
What gets you out of bed every morning? Find that goal that drives you and motivates you every day when you don’t feel like doing anything. If you find that goal, and you stay focused and keep working hard. That’s all the motivation you need to turn that dream into a reality.
