Sometimes we shift through our day-to-day lives, getting done what we need to do simply because it’s necessary. We don’t feel motivated, we don’t feel excited, and we just feel the burden of daily tasks. Even with that lack of motivation, or desire, or enjoyment, we can get things done, we can fulfill our obligations, and we can survive. So why does motivation matter? Is it really that important to be motivated, so long as we can survive life without it? Motivation is absolutely important. So, what is the point to being motivated?
Motivation is vital to life. We may be able to survive without it, floating through our day to day tasks with little acknowledgement of anything except finishing. But we can’t enjoy life without it. And life is about enjoyment. Life isn’t just about surviving; it’s about having fun, enjoying new experiences, and finding things to make us happy. There’s only so long that we can actually survive without enjoying life. It may seem now like it’s easy to just keep going, but that won’t always be the case. It will get harder and harder, and unless there is motivation to keep going, there won’t be much of a reason to. Motivation is what keeps us enjoying life. If we’re motivated to do something, there is something good about it. Even if it’s just the reward at the end, it makes things worth doing. And that means we’re enjoying it, at least a part of it. Motivation is about enjoying life.
Without motivation, no one would ever get ahead in life. Being stuck in the same place day after day will get old eventually. But if we are constantly growing, becoming better, moving up, we’ll never get tired of life. Life will never become stagnant, and we’ll never get bored with who we are or what we’re doing. Without motivation, we would all be lost in a sea of mediocrity. Motivation leads us to be great. Motivation leads us to become inspired. And inspiration is the best feeling in the world, no matter where the inspiration is coming from. Life isn’t about being stagnant, it’s not about being the same, it’s about surviving. Life is about living. Life is about feeling alive. Motivation is vital to succeed with that. Motivation keeps us growing, moving on, and moving up.
It’s difficult to find the motivation to do certain things. Getting up and finishing the boring, but necessary, tasks life throws at us can be incredibly difficult. But with the right motivation? Those tasks will get easier. The everyday jobs can become just as fun and important as anything else because they are going to lead to something better. There’s a reason to finish those tasks, more than just getting them done. There’s a reason to do those tasks well, and to do them right. Motivation makes even the smallest and most boring of things easier, and motivation makes everything that much happier, that much easier to enjoy.
Just remember that….
